Eforce’s viral marketing strategy works a treat

On day three of Eforce’s Imac giveaway promotion – 100 Imacs in 100 days – the new Ecommerce “intermediary” ecommerce portal has nearly doubled its pre-promotion membership base and now has 7500 members.

Speaking on a cell-phone from a planning meeting-cum-celebration with his team this morning, Eforce creative director Paul Fairburn said Eforce was “stoked” at the performance of the key element in its marketing strategy.

The viral part of the marketing campaign relates to what happens when new members do not win an Imac in the draw the night of the day the sign up for Eforce membership. If they can convince a friend to sign up – which costs nothing - then they and their friend get another chance to win an Imac.

On its launch the company said it’s initial target was 50,000 members – a target it now looks likely to comfortably meet by the time the 100 Imacs promotion is completed.

Mr Fairburn said the site had seen 2000 members sign up over the last 24 hours. “Watching the server tick over has been pretty phenomenal,” he said. “We are really stoked.”
