Nominate Someone You Know

MarketingSherpa is now accepting entries for the 2010 Viral and Social Marketing Hall of Fame.

If you launched a campaign in the past year that went viral and delivered blockbuster results, or otherwise used social media to achieve a specific marketing goal, then you should make sure to nominate yourself and your campaign.

Use this form to nominate your campaign

This year, they have expanded the traditional Viral Marketing Hall of Fame program to encompass all social marketing initiatives. This means you can share the details of a successful viral marketing campaign that used social media as a key channel, or nominate a non-viral campaign that targeted social followers, was executed in social channels, or used the power of social media in other ways to achieve a marketing goal.

In all cases, Hall of Fame honorees will be selected based on their:

  • Creativity and unique campaign approach
  • Relevance to brand or target audience
  • Measurement tactics put in place
  • Results, including achieving a significant business goal, not just broad reach

So gather up your campaign results and creative samples and fill out the form to tell the story behind your biggest social or viral marketing success. There’s no cost to enter, and if you are selected, you’ll be featured in one of the Sherpa’s upcoming newsletter.
