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.

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).

41 Case Study – Marketing a Book Retool: -----Original Message-----
Hi (First Name), (Personalized Intro) I am working with David Vinjamuri on his new book, Accidental Branding: How Ordinary People Build Extraordinary Brands. I would love to start a dialogue with you about the book if you are interested. There are some online reactions to Accidental Branding here: http://www.accidentalbranding.com/book-reviewsLet me know if you would like to learn more.Best, Samantha Results:http://www.accidentalbranding.com/book-reviews
42 Contacting Bloggers Do Reach out as individual to individual Personalize the message Offer something of real value (product, access, information, influence) Keep the initial contact short Test the relationship Don’t Spam Treat A-list bloggers like employees Use sales language Send a press release
43 Blogs work for small problems … Challenge Open up Stormhoek to a larger audience with virtually no budget Solution Blogger employed to write diary ‘behind the grape’ Samples sent to bloggers, asked to post comment (good & bad)
44 Stormhoek Results - GapingVoid.com [The original brochure that came with the bloggers' Stormhoek bottle. ] 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. We're talking tens of thousands of cases, here.
46 Blog Advertising works differently Simple text, headline to encourage debate Avoid animation, blend in with environment Gather blog comments in to ad, link to blog… Bring ‘conversation’ to the fore
47 Blog Exercise Part I: Divide into Groups Pick a topic Great restaurants / shops in your neighborhood The best activities and resources for urban kids Political ad reviews Dog / cat resources in the city Go to: www.blogger.com Register and create blog (we’ll do this together)
48 Blog Exercise Part II: Create a blog roll Blog on related topics Blogs your readers might enjoy Blogs who you want to notice you Write to your first post Add at least 2 links Mind the title Add tags Add pictures
49 Blog Exercise Part III: (Time Permitting) Pick a fight Find a blog post (on a related blog) you disagree with Post your competing point of view Make sure you link back to the original post Respond to a publicist Restaurant Blog – An independent publicist named “Jane” sends you a form e-mail asking you to write about a restaurant in a different neighborhood Urban Kid Blog – Marco from Edelman PR asks you in a nice form e-mail if you want to receive and test a new urban kid-leash Political Ad Reviews – you get a personalized note from someone in the local Obama or McCain office (pick your candidate) asking you to write about the opponent’s smear ad Dog/Cat Review – A local vet who reads your blog offers you a special free checkup for your reader’s pet.

63 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
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.
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) Source: Real Time Marketer
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.

Blogs/Press Broadcasting & Cable 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. http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/451470-History_Foursquare_Ink_Partnership.php MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT 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. http://www.mobile-ent.biz/news/36737/History-Channel-links-with-Foursquare-for-America-series

Users are credited with virtual rewards (stamps for check-ins and pins for trips) when they visit both common and unique locations.
