Ted Murphy, CEO of IZEA sent out a Tweet and put up a post on the IZEA blog. He called for people to shoot photos of themselves with Pringles. He then used the photos in part of a presentation titled “The Social Media Symphony” subtitled “Harness the power of social media to drive traffic and sales”. And he achieved that with his example of how the power of a single tweet and post could stir up people to go buy Pringles and take pictures of themselves with Pringles.

Yum!

Here are the other people who couldn’t stop the pop.

    Chuckess,

    Drew, I usually just change the name to Bob but only keep the comment if it makes sense in the context of the message. (some actually do)

    Owen,
    Yeah I should do that too. I sometimes remove everything and change the spam name to something and even respond to the comment. I am addicted to responding to my comments. Saw your post, very well done and I like the new look of the honeypot. Great job. Yesterday I was helping a friend set up wordpress on Bluehost and lo and behold I saw a post by you in the forum. I was like, Hey! I know that blogger!

  6. I was there for Ted’s presentation. It was excellent. He did a great job of incorporating interesting stories, links to great tools, and real world examples of how to leverage web 2.0 for a variety of reasons. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for the Pringles photos.
