Hey guys, here's the deal: I work here in KC promoting films. My boss from Sony wants us to create a link to a trailer of "The Ugly Truth," on facebook. Yes, its a chick flick.

They have us using this tracking site with the link, and whoever gets the most clicks wins "something awesome."

On the other hand, if I don't generate many clicks, my ass is grass. And right now, I am way behind.

That being said, if you could click this link about 5, 10, or 50 times, it would be much appreciated. Since its on FB, it may require you to log on to your account first, I'm not sure.

Rep to whoever helps me! Thanks everyone.

Actually, for a chick-flick, it looks like it might be decent. The lead guy acts like a pig, and then tries to teach the girl how to ensnare a guy by doing stuff like eating a hot dog sexily. :) Besides, it's the guy from "300"...

How many clicks would be unreasonable? I could set up a macro to give you a couple thousand, but I don't want to get you in trouble or anything.

"This video either has been removed from Facebook or is not visible due to privacy settings."

Yeah, a few people in my office are getting that, but a the majority aren't. For whatever reason, it still credits it as a click though.

I wonder why it does that?

Mr. Plow
07-02-2009, 12:30 PM
Just worked for me....I don't have to actually watch the video do I? Cause those 15-20 clicks will of all be wasted.

Haha, yeah that would be great and all.... but I think it would raise some eyebrows.

Plus, it tells where the click comes from. It shows how many come from what site. My boss might get a little suspicious haha!

DA_T_84

Wow guys. 101 clicks in 35 minutes. Wow.

Wow. So, it isnt showing any data outside of the last ten minutes, and it keeps updating. I would have about 350 by now, and it only shows 24.... and then that number shrinks when it gets updated.

I already emailed their contact stuff, they arent getting back to me.

I emailed my boss, and he said "Just try and get a screen shot of when you had 250[i would have had about 250 at that point] or just include in the assignemnt you had it at 250 at one point. I will trust you. Not sure what the issue is, I will try to look into."

So he seems pretty cool about it.... but I dont want to be like "I got 600" without proof. I need it to get high so i can take a screen shot of the number...

This is bullshit. I hope they still have the info backlogged.

KEEP IT COMING BABY!!!! I just got this email from the staff of the website:

Brad,

It could be Monday before it's all showing again. We are working to make it sooner, but basically:

We had an issue yesterday with metrics. It was noted here in this blog post: Bit.ly Note: Historical Metrics System Status - http://bit.ly/NVWEV and I also tweeted it 2x yesterday - here: http://twitter.com/RexDixon/status/2421398121 and here: http://twitter.com/RexDixon/status/2426809967

Just updated here concerning the hardware issue at hand - Bit.ly UPDATE: Metrics System Status Update - http://bit.ly/12y5vA

We appreciate your patience as this clears and catches up.

Rex

So Monday, when all the info gets fixed, I am gunna have an eff ton of links. Hells yes.

Thanks again for helping me out, fellas.

Browsers transmit that type of information if you've got your web site set up to capture it. You can capture where people came from, operating system, browser, screen resolution, and a variety of other things.

If they are counting the clicks at "bit.ly" then I doubt it matters if facebook is blocked.

50 here, and I watched the video, which I suspect it what your bosses really care about.

As for giving up the man card, based on the clip, I suspect the guys here on CP would like the movie.

Hey! I was gunna start a thread as soon as I found out the final numbers, but my boss has yet to tell us.... HOWEVER

For the trailer that I selected- My link was responsible for 658 clicks out of 1,058 clicks. I was responsible for 62% of the clicks for that trailer. In other words- I should effing win unless someone pulled some shit I am unaware of.

I am expected an announcement soon! When I emailed in my report, he replied with "Wow! Good Job!" - so at least I'm not fired, haha!

Oh- and Chiefsplanet was responsible for 511 clicks. THANK YOU ALL SOOOO VERY MUCH! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

Well, everyone. I owe you many thanks.

Just got an email telling me that I won the contest. NATIONALLY. My boss in LA was like, "Damn, these Chief fans sure love movie trailers!" I got props in a company-wide email, and he asked for my home address to send me my prize. Dunno what it is, but I am pumped. Even if it sucks, it was cool to go from worst to first in 3 days time.

A lot of it is from you all. Play on, playas.
