$50 on Fiverr – Viral Video (The Finale)

This is the final part in our $50 on Fiverr series, where we try to get our online marketing up to scratch by spending our ENTIRE budget on Fiverr, before we start you might want to start at the introduction.

Everybody wants to be a viral sensation these days, not everyone can get the videos of Charlie bit my finger, Gangnam Style or the newly released Royal Wedding Bad Lip Reading.

But I have a crisp $5 note (and $0.30 in processing fees) that says that we can create a viral video JUST AS GOOD.

Choosing the Seller

We actually started looking for this job when we first started the campaign, after all Fiverr has a viral videos section.

After a bit of searching (a lot of these are just a single video with the option to superimpose your logo on something which is not what we wanted at all) we found

How could you not!

I decided to break the rules of the challenge with this one and go for the Standard package and get the logo on the bottom of the ‘pie’.

Ordering Process

For once they didn’t ask us about the industry sector.

How many pies do you want? ($5 per pie)
If you have a short message, would you like it to be said before or after the pie hits?

A message or logo at the bottom of the pie is an additional $5.
A script to be said in the video is an additional $5.
Music in the background is an additional $5.

1 Pie please

Message after the pie – At Little Warden, we don’t know how to do AdWords retargetting, but we do know how to pay $10 for someone to get a pie in the face

Thank you 🙂

And then we waited.

A day later we got an update!

Brilliant, this pie in the sky idea is going to happen! We are going to be a VIRAL SENSATION!.

Then we got another update.

Wait, what? who the hell is Brad and why is he so busy all of a sudden? Are you Brads manager? did he get a better gig? someone needs him for an urgent pie to the face gig in LA and it could lead to big stuff?

*sigh* Right.. let’s start this again.

There are a fair number of pie to the face jobs on Fiverr but one stood out..

Bingo!

I won’t paste the conversation but after a SLIGHT delay, we got our video and now the moment you’ve all been waiting for

And thats the end of our $50 on Fiverr series, if you’ve enjoyed it, consider buying our product so we’ve got the money to do stupid stuff like this in future, or at least join the mailing list.

We’ve got plenty of stuff planned including a new marketing campaign in a few weeks but we’ve got to take some time to concentrate on preparing for our first birthday (and the Penguin Awards)!

 

 

 

Introducing the Penguin Awards (the Digital Marketing awards nobody asked for!)

Today I’m taking a break from feature announcements and spending money on stupid marketing tactics and are announcing a brand new event for the digital marketing world… AN AWARDS CEREMONY!  

Still with me?

The Penguin Awards are a digital marketing awards like no other, we celebrate the best (and not so best) of the industry with the aim of raising money for Charity.

Featuring categories such as

  • BEST SEO LOOKALIKE
  • BEST OFFICE DOG
  • WEIRDEST SEO CAMPAIGN
  • THE WE’VE NEVER WON AN AWARD BEFORE AWARD

And my favourite

  • BEST GIF RESPONSE

There is at least one category for everyone and with an entry fee of just £10 per entry, we want to be overwhelmed with entries, partly because we want to celebrate and have fun with the industry but more importantly

Every penny raised goes to the Martin House Children’s Hospice. That’s right, not every penny profit. Every penny given to us will go to the charity and Little Warden is covering all additional costs (website, streaming, trophies, postage)

Trophies? You want a trophy.. We’ve got trophies.. We’ve bought the BEST trophies that a ‘trophy joblot’ search on eBay has to offer and if you win, you will be the proud owner of a preloved cheerleader trophy with your name engraved over it.

Head over to www.penguinawards.com and look at the categories and if you don’t feel like entering one then we have a special category just for you, it’s called the I really really want to win this award, award and you can bid for it on eBay in a month up until an hour before the ceremony starts.

Just a quick note from me personally to say how overwhelmed I’ve been with the support from the Digital Marketing community with this event, from a stupid idea on a drive home from a gig to a weekend landing page to now having over £2000 in donations from companies sponsoring categories in less than 5 days, things like this truly bring out the best in our industry

It is SLIGHTLY annoying that this one event has now raised more than the entirety of my running last year AND I’ve already committed to running this year. Had I known I could have sacked it all off and just done a live stream awards from my house I would have done that years ago.

I really hope you will enter the awards and enjoy the live stream, every entry makes a difference and I really need to get rid of this massive amount of trophies on my desk.

 

I’d like to send by saying thank you to our category sponsors, Little Warden, Kerboo, Sitebulb, Accountancy Extra, Sanity Check, Clockwork Talent, Polemic Digital, 10 Yetis, Biddable Moments, Stat, SERPmetrics, Deepcrawl, Many Minds and we’ve still got a few categories left if you’d like to get involved.
