Warning! You will probably wind up spending money before you complete reading this blog entry. (I did)
So much can be said about this incredible spot. I for one am inspired. For any small businesses or startups out there who think they can’t afford a video or commercial, this one features Dollar Shave Club’s CEO and Founder Michael Dubin. He wrote, shot and produced the entire commercial in his office/warehouse in one day. 90 seconds after watching, he got me signed up on a monthly plan.
Sure it’s funny, and sharable, but does it translate to profits? Well, Dollar Shave Club uploaded the video to youtube 4 days ago, since then they’ve garned over 2.5 million views and 30,000 likes on facebook. What would happen to your business with an extra 2.5 million eyeballs this week?
UPDATE – I was just notified that my new membership will not be able to be activated until May 15th. I guess things must really be buzzing around Dollar Shave Club’s offices. Congrats guys.
