  5. […] Marketing 2.0 – Dave Duarte A fascinating presentation on the way marketing is going. Viral marketing and blogging are definitely two of the biggest, and probably cheapest, marketing tools available today!Dave used the success around Stormhoek wines as a case study. Just check out these guys web stats, amazing growth in an amazingly short time frame!Graham Knox from Stormhoek wines had a tight advertising budget, and didn’t want an advertising company to swallow it up, so he turned to blogging. His offer: any person who blogged about the Stormhoek blog would get a free personalised bottle of wine. The offer was happily accepted by loads of people and back links came firing in.Obviously it helps to have Hugh McLeod, the well known disruptive marketer, and owner of the famous blog, Gaping Void as a mate. Hugh drew some of his famous cartoons for Stormhoek.A long story short (that you can read more about @ the Stormhoek blog), Stormhoek won Best consumer Campaign” for online work at the London International Wine and Spirits Trade Show, they are now exporting to the USA and the UK, and soon to China I think, all because of a blog!Dave also used Caffeine Spot as a case study. A new and fast growing blog written by some guys running a coffee shop in Sea Point, Cape Town. They have a similar offer, blog about them and get a free coffee and muffin. And that’s what I’ve done. And now I have lunch. […]

  12. […] Caffeine can be found at 11 Regent Street in Seapoint, Cape Town. It’s the latest addition to a growing number of Caffeine coffee shop franchises in the Mother City. What differentiates this particular watering hole from its competitors is the attention Caffeine is getting thanks to a very clever marketing initiative by the owners and a whole whack of blogging buzz – citizen journalists writing about it on the web in personal journals and websites.

  14. Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? Why has bush turned our country from a country of hope and prosperity to a country of belligerence and fear.
    What happened to us, people? When did we become such lemmings?
    The more people that the government puts in jails, the safer we are told to think we are. The real terrorists are wherever they are, but they aren’t living in a country with bars on the windows. We are.
