Huckleberry Bicycles would like to thank Mike's "Schmike's" Bikes Â for tipping us off to the hottest new marketing strategy in town: URL redirects! Â If you like Schmike's as much as we do, you can link to their Web site here: www.huckleberrybicycle.com -- o wait, what?! That domain name looks an awful lot like the Huckleberry Bicycles Web site. The only thing missing is the s at the end of bicycles. Â Gee, that is so CONFUSING! It almost seems like an intentional attempt to confuse people. I wonder if that is fair? Or even legal?
Well, you know what they say, if you can't beat 'em join em. So we're taking a page from Schmike's book on marketing. Â It's time to launch plan Ludicrous Confusion. Â That's the plan where we, like Schmike's, register some sweet confusing Web URLs that redirect people to our Web site. We carefully selected some easy-to-confuse domain names to fool Schmike's customers into shopping at Huckleberry. Â Here they are:
Yup. Those hard-earned dollars that you've been forkin' over to Huckleberry Bicycles will be put to GREAT use! Â Soon we'll be buying up all of these beauties and redirecting visitors to the one-and-only www.huckleberrybicycles.com. Â So.. Â See you at Schmike's! Â err.. i mean... Huckleberry!
