Video: How Microsoft makes everyday stuff buzzworthy

Rob and Jessica share the challenges they faced for creating excitement around their Windows 8 launch.

Sure, big exciting news is a reliable way to get people talking. But what about the everyday stuff? This is what separates one-off campaigns from truly remarkable and engaged communities. According to Microsoft’s Rob Wolf and Jessica Jensen, brands that do this well are self-aware, they sweat the details of every interaction, and they encourage their fans to show their love.

In their presentation from’s BlogWell conference in Los Angeles, Rob and Jessica talk about the challenges they faced for creating daily engagement and big buzz for their Windows 8 launch.

In their presentation, they also explain:

  • Why you should ignore the guy who says “you can’t post that much”
