Marketting Vertical Marathon
« on: April 14, 2010, 06:53:28 PM »
Hey everyone,

I've started putting this message on a few other forums that i read, can i suggest that you guys and girls do the same. As many and varied forums as you lot read, even twitter it or FB if you can.

I was speaking to my Father who used to be a Marketting Manager and Viral marketting is a very cheap way of publishing and gaining interest. So if you could all make a small effort and post a message something like the below in other places you visit on the web it may have a viral/exponential effect....

Cheers

Pete

Hey everyone,

Our local climbing club will be holding a vertical Marathon the day before the London Marathon to raise money for the British Moutain Rescue Council. This involves around 50 members climbing 26 miles as a group effort. Individually each member will need to climb respective the height of the current worlds tallest building (over 832m). The website for this endeavour is...

Now aswell as asking for a donation :0) i'm in need of some assistance. I need help in marketting this event to the larger nation, if you could blog about this on twitter, your facebook pages, my space, other forums etc it would be a great help. I'm trying to start a domino effect, also if anyone else wishes too i have press releases and statements ready if anyone has a close ear to friends or family in the Media.

Anyway please have a look at the website and if you think you can help out in any way then please get in touch :0)

Cheers and have fun

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather -- who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.
