      Subject: Blog: Accidental Branding,  Vinjamuri
      Hello Seth,
         I found your blog on David Meerman Scott's  website.    I am wondering if you would be interested  in receiving a few electronic chapters from another author, David  Vinjamuri's March pub "Accidental Branding: How Ordinary People Build  Extraordinary Brands," also a Wiley title.   Accidental Branding shares the stories of  seven different brands started by amateurs (each have their New Yorker/Vanity Fair style profile), including:    * Craigslist (Craig Newmark);   * J. Peterman Company (John Peterman);     * Clif Bar (Gary Erickson);     * Columbia Sportswear (Gert  Boyle);   * Burt’s Bees (Roxanne  Quimby);   * Baby Einstein (Julie  Aigner-Clark);   * and, The Art of  Shaving (Myrian Zaoui and Eric Malka).    You can see some early media reaction by  visiting:Entrepreneur.com (<http://topshelf.entrepreneur.com/) ORMSNBC.com (<http://yourbiz.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/01/15/571953.aspx>).    I'm hoping you will be interested in  blogging on “Accidental Branding”, and in recommending it to your readers  (if you like it). David Vinjamuri will link to your blog from his website,  www.accidentalbranding.com,  if you should decide to post on it.   David is also an established blogger. You  can see him at <http://www.brandtrainers.com/blog/blog.html>.    Please contact me if you would be  interested.    Thank you,  Holly

      A journalist phoned me yesterday about an article she is writing about business blogs for one of the large UK trade mags. I gave her this little nugget, which I've only just been allowed to go public with:
      Blogging doubled Stormhoek sales in less than twelve months.

      How Can We Use Location to Help Businesses?
      There Must Be Opportunities Beyond Search!
      People Want to Connect
      Successful Applications Must:
      Connect People
      Be Fun
      Get them to Self-Identify Location
      Give Businesses a Chance to Interact
    • Two New Location-Based Apps Are Exploding
      • Foursquare and Gowalla

      • Foursquare is largest
      • Still Small By City
      • But Users May Be Influencers
      Source: Kevin Nakao, Mashable
    • Foursquare Basics
      Foursquare is a location-based social networking website, software for mobile devices, and also a game.
      Users "check-in" at venues using text messaging or a device specific application. They are then awarded points and sometimes "badges."
      Source: Wikipedia
    • Badges
      Badges are earned by checking into various venues
      Some cities have city-specific badges
      Once a badge is earned - it will remain on that user's profile indefinitely
      Foursquare is secretive about unlocking badges
      There are a handful of introductory badges that are earned as milestones
      Some badges are tied to venue "tags"
      Other badges may be specific to a city, venue, event, or date
      Some badges utilize identical icons, but are earned differently
      Source: Wikipedia
    • Examples of Badges
      BENDER: Check in 4 nights in a row
      FAR FAR AWAY: Check in outside NYC “boundaries”
      GYM RAT: Check to a gym 10x in 30 days
      DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’: Check in to 3 karaoke venues
      JETSETTER: Check to 5 different airports
      Source: Real Time Marketer
    • Superusers
      There are 3 levels of "Superuser status“ which is earned by frequent/active users
      • Superuser level 1 can edit venue info (address, cross street, Twitter names), mark places as "closed", and let Foursquare know about duplicate venues.
      • Superuser level 2 can edit venues and merge duplicate venue listings as well as add venue categories for any venue.
      • Superuser level 3 adds the ability to create venue aliases and delete fake/spam listings.
      Source: Wikipedia
    • Marketing &
      Ensure your business has a presence (or edit the existing entry to ensure correct/complete info)
      Add friends to build your social network
      Get active by checking in to your location & other venues
      Add tips, especially around specials & promotions
      Reward users who check-in with special offers
      Spread the word by linking to other social networks to expand your network
      Create outside the box events to inspire participation (ie. Specials that can only be found under “tips”, flash mob events)

    • CASE STUDY: THE HISTORY CHANNEL
      People check-in at various historical locations across the country
      HISTORY fans receive pop up tips including historical facts. Fans also leave tips for other Foursquare users.
      The mayor of each historical location is able to unlock the HISTORY badge.
      Every time a person checks-in at a historical location they are entered into a sweepstakes to win a HISTORY prize pack
      This partnership launched in conjunction with the HISTORY series “America The Story of Us”
      This was promoted through HISTORY’s facebook and twitter pages, on-air promos, on History.com, and on foursquare’s site.

      History, Foursquare Ink Partnership
      Cabler partners with social media service for ‘America The Story of Us'
      By Alex Weprin -- 4/14/2010 2:12:49 PM
      A&E Networks-owned History is the latest network to partner with social media service Foursquare. Tied to the upcoming premiere of America The Story of Us, users who opt to participate will receive interesting facts when they check in to historic locations. In addition, 10 randomly selected users will receive an America The Story of Us prize pack"Teaming up with foursquare for the America The Story of Us promotion reinforces the History brand's 360-degree approach of aggressively reaching our viewers in new platforms," says Chris Moseley, senior VP of marketing for History. "The connection to America The Story of Us is a perfect fit as it will allow users of foursquare to discover the history in their own cities as well as leave historical tips for others to experience."Foursquare has been busy inking deals with major media companies. The company has already tied deals to NBC Universal's Bravo and MTV Networks.

      History Channel links with Foursquare for America series
      Latest media partnership for social location service
      Check-ins can be educational, y'know. At least they can if you're in the US, thanks to a deal between social location service Foursquare and the History Channel.
      It's based around a new documentary series called America: The Story of Us, which looks at American history.
      How does Foursquare fit in? When users check-in to selected locations in various cities, they'll see bite-sized nuggets of information about the buildings and venues' history.
      Users can also gain a dedicated History Channel badge to add to their Foursquare achievements collection. There are real prizes too.
      It's the latest example of Foursquare partnering with a broadcaster, which has the added benefit of driving awareness of its service beyond early adopters.

    • Gowalla
    • Gowalla – What is it?
      • is a location-based social networking game launched as a public beta in March 2009.
      • has around 250,000 users up to now. Users have grown up a 65% only in the last month.
      • uses different virtual goods to encourage its users to go places and meet people.
    • Gowalla – How does it work?
      • Each user has a passport to check in when they arrive at their final destination. They can both look for nearby locations (divided in categories) or create their own spot or trip.
      • Players use a GPS-enable smartphone (iPhone mainly) to check in, share their location with friends, and leave comments and add pictures about their travels.
      • Check-in and entries can be shared on Facebook and Twitter instantly.
      • Users are credited with virtual rewards (stamps for check-ins and pins for trips) when they visit both common and unique locations.
    • Gowalla – Opportunities
      • Some brands are signing up for Gowalla to do promotions. The latest three are: Adobe, Chipotle, and the New Jersey Nets. The New Jersey Nets used Gowalla to give away 500 tickets to their final home game against the Chicago Bulls on April 12.
      • Has a getsatisfation feature that allows companies to create an online community moderated by employees and also volunteers that provide real-time support and feedback to customers. They can also mange their community contacts in a CRM that can be connected to their CRM. And the prices are not expensive.
