A new website, Smokoo.co.za, has launched in South Africa and they are being very schneaky when it comes to what its all about.
So sneaky in fact that they are giving away an iPad if you can guess what the hell is going on.
I’m liking the way they are approaching this marketing angle. Don’t tell anyone what it is..make them guess..offer an iPad as a prize etc. Great way to drum up support before you even launch.
Not so sure about the pre-registration though. Nowadays people like to know what they getting themselves into hey. I mean what if it’s a porn site or worse..someone trying to sell you sh*t you don’t want yes Verimark i’m looking at you. The internets stores everything and the last thing you want is for someone to open your email and there is a message saying your subscription to the hottest grandma donkey midget porn website is active.
Everything can be found on the internet my friends. Take for example the offer from smokoo.co.za. They have been careful to hide what they’re all about, but within two clicks its possible to trace who registered the domain,where its based, who the host is and get a telephone number for the registrant! A simple Google search on the number will give you the name of a person and what they do.
Now i’m not saying that those details are correct or have anything to do with the site, but it just goes to show how easy it is to track stuff on the interwebs.
Anyways, it still doesn’t give you any clue as to what they are doing so go guess..and let me know if you win that iPad.
And speaking of schneaky, that reminds me.. the SuperEna lotto is currently at $136 million for tonights draw and co-incidently you can also win an iPad just by registering to play HERE.
