Joe Morin thinks he's got the next Million Dollar Home page mixed with romance going. To wit: someone named JP (to stay secret from his girlfriend) wants to make his wedding proposal in a TV commercial during next year's SuperBowl. Joe's hoping that somehow, search and interactive marketers can make it happen. Joe's post with details is here; the proposal site itself is here. Since the ads are all sold already, it's not a matter of raising money now but buzz to perhaps get JP linked up with an existing advertiser that might want to feature him. Good luck, JP -- and she'd better say yes!
I'll throw out a consolation prize that I know search marketers can do. Let's link over to the site with the words "will you" - like this: will you. Perhaps some link love will mean that JP can sit his girlfriend down in front of a computer and have her type that into Google, Yahoo, Live and Ask to find his site ranking tops. And if he sees it getting there, just change the title tag to read something like "Marry Me [INSERT GIRLFRIEND'S NAME]," and that's not a bad way to propose at all. Kind of how Barry did just over a year ago with Ask -- but this time without the search engine having to make it happen.
