Tampa, FL, June 07, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- By encouraging participants to tweet daily messages posted on his wine blog, self proclaimed wino, Randy Watson is changing the rules of internet advertising. His method doesn't require fancy slogans or graphics. Instead, he encourages hundreds to spread messages over social networks such as twitter and Facebook by offering participants the chance to win freebies. The concept is taking off faster than he ever anticipated. Watson states that "there has been an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the concept from companies and viewers. It's unbelievable how many people are participating every day."
Exchanging publicity for freebies is what Randy Watson's website 'The Wine Whore' is all about. In exchange for free bottles, the website features reviews of the wines he receives. This trade provides ultra-cheap publicity for wineries, retailers, and distributors, while also being informative and entertaining for other wine drinkers. This site is creating quite a buzz. Multitudes of wineries, wine lovers, and spectators are joining him in the ‘cause’. Watson explains that once the site became popular, people were inspired to ask how they can drink for free.
