PalTalk : Viral Marketing, at it's best !!!

In some of my previous articles , I have written about Viral Marketing through YouTube, Twitter, SlideShare and other Web 2.0 sites. But how about a marketing campaign where you can sell yourself [as a person, through a prank] and guess what, it indirectly does the marketing for the company whose software was used for creating this prank biggrin

Check out this amazing video below which is created through Paltalk and I am sure after watching the COMPLETE video, you would also want to include the same on your blog. IMHO, this inner feeling of showing off this video is what makes it so viral !!!


Source of the Viral video : Scott Fox's Blog

Note:
If you have watched the complete video , than let me make it clear "I still reside in India" wink

This video has been a big hit with my family. They know I've been busy with online viral marketing and I spend most of my day on the internet so I was pretty well setup for this perfect prank. The look on their face was priceless ;)

Hey,
@Savya:
Thanks for the information.IMHO,instead of giving an unrelated comment , you could directly mail the relevant bloggers with this information.

Such kind of SPAMMING infact hurts the Brand and also people would be less interested in the same :)

With the new version of PalTalk you can see all rooms support voice, video and text for thousands of members simultaneously. I got the new version from here: PalTalk and it seems to work very well.

Well, If you have ever thought of writing some script to automate those things that you do many times every day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons can automate all actions connected to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you'll need some other script, simple commands can automate your system. Even a beginner can automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and simple commands.
A GUI can be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a mix of straightforward commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it just searches the screen for the image in the screenshot-which implies that you'll be able to use it for anything. There's literally no limit on how you use it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, however if you watch the subsequent video, you will come to know that this is often very easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it can be a cake walk even for beginners. You'll check the video as well as get the software at [url=http://technoages.com/operating-system/apple-mac-os/automate-everything-through-a-simple-script-make-your-computer-listen-to-you/]TechnoAges.com[/url]
