In a stunningly brilliant example of shameless promotion on multiple levels, Murphy-Goode winery is hosting a competition to hire a Web 2.0 –savvy wine-lover to become their on-line marketing mouthpiece for 6 months, making around $60 Gs. The job will entail promoting Sonoma County wine country, while also working with Murphy-Goode winemaker David Ready, Jr. to create a new wine.
They’re calling the the competition “A Really Goode Job” and it’s understandably gaining quite a lot of buzz on-line. In fact, Murphy-Goode is already sitting pretty on this deal, as they’ve probably scored way over $60K in media exposure over this and the competition is just now picking up steam.
Just a few quick-hits on upcoming wine events in November for you, before we head into another (hopefully fabulous) autumn weekend!
