Sunday, December 13, 2009 Christmas marketing campaign

I am impressed by Namecheap's Christmas campaign. Smart dudes.

1. They are using Twitter to spread the word. (viral marketing)

2. They are offering a lot of great prizes. (value)

3. Like most retailers these days, times are slow. They are using Guerrilla Marketing tactics. I love those when they are creative.

4. I am a targeted customer since I've used Namecheap's service. Since they do give good service I am likely to spread the word.

Overall, I like what they are doing even though I hate Christmas Hype. Did you know you can send Christmas gifts through a Christmas Gift Registry now? Ludicrous comes to mind. I have NO financial affiliation with NameCheap but I'm not shy to toot someone's horn when they perform well.

Please Comment on this. I would love to hear what you think.

Here is the email I received from NameCheap.
