Making perhaps, one of the biggest viral marketing coups in the nascent wine social mediasphere, Murphy-Goode Winery in Healdsburg has blown up the interwebs with its A Really Goode Job search and marketing campaign. The basics are these:
– Live near the property in northern Sonoma Valley, right off the square in Healdsburg in a furnished private home.
– Work by using all means of social media to promote Murphy-Goode and its wine and the whole of Sonoma County with the provided camera video camera, handheld device and/or smartphone. You’ll “need” to taste hundreds of wines for free and eat all over the Valley, as well…shucks.
– Get paid 10K/month for a 6 month contract.
– Flexible working hours (though I imagine you’d WANT to be “always on”).
Holy crap, *I’d* love this job, but I’m afraid that I am unable to apply. What’s the next best thing, however? It’s voting for my personal favorite and one that you should vote for too!
I met Hardy Wallace (Twitter) of Dirty South Wine and now Goode to be First on Twitter last year and then had a blast hanging out with him and learning from him at last year’s WBC. He’s extremely knowledgeable about wine, can deliver in a very accessible manner to both millennials as well as older peeps and is just plain fun to be with as well as quite charismatic. Evidence of his social media skills are present all over the web, in tons of blogs and all over Twitter and Facebook, and even Blip.fm! He’s currently in a solid second in the public voting at the website!
