Shashi Bellamkonda has been a long-time supporter of our Gnomedex conference. He is the social media genius behind Network Solutions. Earlier this evening, the company launched what can only be described as the most genius marketing campain in the history of online advertising. It ranks right up there with the whole Old Spice
We’ve all seen the GoDaddy commercials. Heck, I’m proud to say that GoDaddy (and the girls!!) are a sponsor and supporter of our entire community. I’ve helped to publish their newest commercial, and thought it was very well done.
However, the video done by Network solutions (above) is something that I have to take my hat off to. It is the funniest thing that I have seen in a very long time. Actress Cloris Leachman is at her very best in this “ad,” and puts even the most beautiful girls in other videos to shame.
Will this stroke of viral (mark my words – it will be viral very shortly) crusade turn into sales for the company? That remains to be seen, of course. We know for a fact, though, that this will equate to a heck of a lot of clicks, word of mouth advertising and will keep the company on the minds of us all for quite a while.
That, my friends, is priceless.
