Gizmodo.com and iPhone generate buzz

So…unless you’ve were hiding under rocks for the past couple of days you probably didn’t hear the news about the newest iPhone being acquired by Gizmodo editor Jason Chen.

Now while this was the latest news we couldn’t help but wonder the amazing power of word of mouth and buzz combined with online.

It seems that over night, literally, this blog which was well known within the tech community suddenly has become a household name that everyone is talking about. It was even featured on the national morning talkshow circuit such as Good Morning America (GMA).

Take a look at this pic, it displays Gizmodo.com traffic.

Not bad if you consider the fact that Gizmodo paid about $5,000 for the scope on this iPhone.

How many companies out there can claim to have these sort of results with a such a small media budget. Just goes to show that sometimes you have to take a risk.

In Gizmodo’s case they did…and it paid off big.
