PureMatter Dead Website Kit makes AdRANTs
How exciting is it to have an industry expert express public love for fun campaigns… especially when they’re from your own company? This is what we’d consider a “cherry on top” event – an unexpected mention in a cool industry blog about our “Dead Website” campaign last week. Here’s his mention:
PureMatter has a Dead Website Survival Kit for those looking for tips on how to deal with website reconstruction.
He linked to our site… the only problem was, our new site went live today and the Dead Websites had already been laid to rest in the “Our Work” section of the new site (in case you missed them, you can see each day here by clicking on the thumbnails: http://www.purematter.com/our-work/purematter/ )
This was the coolest part of the post, which made our day though:
There are 11 story snippets in his post.
Of the 11, the brands mentioned include Murray Newlands (famous blogger who wrote the blogging manual), BeanCast (Weekly marketing podcast by the AdRant’s Steve Hall), the Dutch Curling League, Amazon, Gossip Girl, Disney, American Express, A&E Channel, Chili’s, ESPN, and PureMatter.
Quite nice company to keep. Thank you @adrants for such a memorable topper to our big website launch day!
