|Draw a Pig
The pig serves as a useful test of the personality traits of the drawer
pigs in the gallery, in the last 24 hours, in the last 10 minutes.
Why has this site got almost half a million piggies?|
Why is it doing so well?
The success of the draw a pig site is partly down to how viral it is. There are 5 "rules" to make a successful viral website and the communications group put all of them into actions on this one site.|
1/ Gives away products or services The draw a pig site is 100% free to use and provides a fun way to gain an insight into the users personality.
2/ Provides for effortless transfer to others When you draw a pig you are given a link to a page with your pig on that you can copy and send it to others, there is also the code provided to post your pig in any forum you may be a member of, every page has a unique URL (the site does not use frames) so it is easy to copy a page to anyone you want.
3/ Scales easily from small to very large This site started out with only 10 pigs been added each day, now there are some days where this hits 10,000 and the site still functions in the same way.
Many coding tricks were used to keep the site running as fast as possible at all times. If there was a period where there was very few pigs added the gallery still contains many pigs for users to view.
4/ Exploits common motivations and behaviours People are always interested in finding out more about themselves, and even more so about others they know. This site provides a unique fun test to find out your personality AND provides a way for users to invite others to take part and have the results of their test emailed back to the sender.
5/ Utilizes existing communication networks With the code provided after you draw and other things mentioned in rule 2 users can spread the "word" by using email, chat clients, forums, blogs. We do not need to market the site, the users are responsible for generating all the traffic and back links
