PS: Any chance of more of those real life "advertise gaia in public places" competitions from a few years back?

As for the "advertise Gaia in public places" question - yes, we are going to be bringing this back! If you feel so inclined already, please feel free to go ahead and do something and send us a picture to let us know! We'd love to see it 3nodding

What about a contest for "advertise zOMG! in public places"? whee


Sure, why not? If you zOMG! fans want to do this, we can certainly put something together. Can you pm me after this and remind me? This just goes so fast things can get lost ! @__@

PM'ed


Thanks for the reminder! I'll see what I can come up with this week. If you have any specific ideas, please let me know. biggrin

Sisky


Seems like zOMGaians already have the hang of memes, even a contest, this should be absolutely easy for us to make some epic IRL ads for zOMG.

Ideas? Themes?

If there isn't a gaia-run one, perhaps I'll make a user-run one emotion_awesome

Lol and you're supposed to be writing essays. razz

Owlie: to come up with ideas, themes, for *how* to advertise, I would first have to have an idea of *where* to advertise. Can't think of anything just yet but my brain is not completely working properly yet.

An example of in-Gaia advertising I do, is in my sig, of course... but how to go about it outside this site?

Maybe we should flood the Cheezburger network with z!-themed lolcats and meme pictures? razz Make everyone wonder what on earth a zOMG! is... Nah, I don't think they'll appreciate that over there. mrgreen

That would be really entertaining to somehow turn zOMG! into a viral meme lol

I think what Sisky's thinking is IRL advertising- like putting up a poster somewhere local for zomg.com, or posting flyers somewhere... or... i don't know what else this could incorporate, hence the thread. sweatdrop

...i really want to flood cheezburger now.

I know. I just have no idea whatsoever how well it works to advertise online things offline, kwim? I've never walked down a street and seen a poster about an internet site and thought: oh! I should visit that!
Though... Perhaps in certain geeky places and groups... hmmmm... Maybe?

Yay. But I get the feeling that even if they did hold a contest it wouldn't be specific on zOMG!

A friend of mine was getting some T-shirts made of some zOMG! art i've done.. We'll wear them out all the time! Maybe I can sneak in a piece of paper with a direct link to zOMG! on it labeled "an adventure of a lifetime" in some Geo-caches a few of my other friends are doing..
And finally, maybe I can sneak into work early and post a bunch of screen-caps with a link to zOMG! all over? >.>

These are just off the top of my head.. If another revitalize event is to take place, i'll be sure to find some great ideas. pirate

Hand out those free gold cards that they do at conventions.

I wonder if it would be permissable to hand out some form of promotional material at a convention?
I'll be going to Fan Expo again this year, and if there was ever an ideal venue for advertising an MMO, that strikes me it.

I would imagine that it would have to be something rather under-stated, such as a business card, or something similarly discrete, so the organisers wouldn't get upset at someone leeching off their event, but it strikes me as a pretty decent opportunity if you could pull it off.

Also, maybe flyers at local Internet Cafe's and that sort of thing?

lolz... I thought of that last night! Some of the art that is on zOMG! (when you change areas) is awesome, and I wanted to know where I could find it (the arts) so I could screen print some onto t-shirts to wear around town.

I also thought about business cards! I love whipping them out when talking about things to people at cons cause it's an easy refrance. cat_3nodding

Hows this for an idea: Host local zOMG! LAN parties with friends, or at the local game shop. I think I'll ask the people who run the small town con here if I can host one next year cat_sweatdrop
