Fortune Cookie Offers Help to Stressed IT Manager
Andrew Teman informs us about a direct mail piece his boss had received consisting of a white 3" x 3" x 3" box which contained a fortune cookie that read, "whatsmyfortune.com." The link leads to a site containing a video portraying a frustrated ISP IT manager experiencing the usual technology related headaches. At the end of the video, he is seen opening his own white box with his own fortune cookie inside. The viewer is then pushed to a series of pages outlining the services CISP, an outsource ISP provider, can offer. After three pages, the visitor is taken to a form page where more information can be requested. It's very pointed and succinct in it's message delivery. Teman reports, though, a problem. His company is not an ISP. Perhaps CISP should check the quality of the mailing list it used for this promotion.
Spelled my name wrong...it is "Teman", not "Temen".
The vid is very weak but gets the point across. Not much info on the web site. The mailer is clever but as pointed out does not seem to be making it into the right hands. Hmmm.
