Nordic eMarketing just moved offices

I think we must have made some-kind of a record, we moved 12 desks, servers, phone lines and other office related stuff and got it up and running with in 22 hours.

Nordic eMarketing moved from Sidumuli 15 to Brautarholt 8, 105 Reykjavik. On the third floor you will find Iceland’s largest Creative Advertising Agency (Hvitahusid) and sharing the second floor with us is ABS Media.

Select a pair of socks and you are off to Iceland!

Here is a great, yet simple sample of a viral campaign. Users got to select a pair of socks, customize their experience in Iceland by selecting scenes for a video and add subtitles. When you are happy with it send the movie to your friend(s).

Similar aproach as with the Dexter viral, that of I could not have enough and really funny.

It goes with out a saying that this is done to promote Iceland and you flying to Iceland with a local airline, ignore that and look at the video that it generates. It does required a lot of time for the users to do and pass it on.

Go and get your socks!

A SEO Howler, Comon Virgin Atlantic it’s 2008!

I never thought I would say it but come on Virgin Atlantic its 2008! This is one of the worst search engine optimising howlers I have seen on a company that has it all, It’s hip, cool and dynamic. The 404 shows a 200 in the header, with some 40 – 50 destinations only 195 pages are indexed at Google and some of them are’nt there, like this URL The usage of Meta data and the title are little to none, “meta name=”description” content=”” . Look at this also:

It’s not that I do not like Virgin, it’s just that I am so surpriced to see a modern company in a very competitive environment not using the Internet to it’s fullest.

And to add to this I can’t see that they are using any web analytics, what???
