Windows 7 House Party Launch
There’s been a lot of buzz going around about the new Windows operating system Windows 7. It’s meant to be a massive improvement over Windows Vista (which some would say isn’t hard). Microsoft seem to be taking a whole new approach with Windows 7, following on the heels of the success of Office 2007. What’s got my attention is how Microsoft plan on launching this new product. In store displays? No. A presentation to a packed out theatre of people? No. Tupperware style parties across the world? YES!
Hundreds of tech enthusiasts from across the globe will be hosting smaller launch parties for Windows 7. They’ll be decked out with decorations, give aways, and instructions for hosting a party.
Has anyone been invited to one of these parties? Was it successful? Was it fun?
I like the focus on not being a salesman, but sharing your experiences and your love of the product.
Could something like this be useful as an evangelistic tool? A city wide release of a new evangelistic program run in hundreds of homes simultaneously?
On a side note, I love the informal nature of the youtube clip. It gets across the information in a fun way. Something to learn for training videos? Let me know what you think in the comments.
