  • Podcasts and videocasts are great social media tools, but the tone most well received is humor. If your product lends itself to humorous situations, you'll get more traffic and awareness. Sometimes it requires out of the box thinking, sometimes it just happens - take Liberty Mutual for example. They didn't intend to have anything humorous about Diabetes. They hired Wilfred Brimley as spokesperson. But people with a sense of humor took the ads and created funny videos on youtube. Is this bad? Not if it raises awareness. Search for 'Diabetes' on Google to see the Wilfred Brimley Diabetes Dance Mix and it's clones.
