Stu’s Xmas Avatar Takeover


We all hunt down ways to push our sites out infront of people and Stu McHenry has come up with the latest cool trick – get as many users as possible to use your Christmas avatar as possible on the major forums. Certainly if you look at the memberlist at DigitalPoint there has been a significant uptake (although this will change after Xmas, I guess).

Whether this translates into a reinvigorated site sift forum or more submissions at his paid directory remains to be seen but it’s certainly created a buzz and people are talking about his logo if nothing else.

An excellent viral marketing campaign so far.

    Aaah the bandwagon has been lept upon with one more directory owner offering big bucks and another asking for donated avatar space.

    In a couple of months this will all be over but you have to hand it to these guys, innovation rocks.

    Sounds like a pretty good idea. Maybe I’ll steal his idea next year…
