Google always comes up with interesting and fun ways to make people do boring things. For example i never spread the word about different website promotions or programs but Google has made my day today and i actually had a laugh. Good Job, no wonder innovative minds at work!

This kind of landing page that works and converts. Because its simple, funny and your doing a good thing.  Google did a good job with invitation emails witch are fun and you cant stop reading them until you read it all. Below are the email templates google offers to use when inviting your friends switch to gmail.

Straightforward: I’m here to help

I’m writing this note in order to help you. I know you’re still comfortable with your old email program, but I’d like to invite you to try Gmail — I’m pretty sure you’ll like it better. Gmail has world-renowned spam protection and innovative features that help you filter your mail, get to important messages more quickly, and search your entire mail history in seconds. You can even do cool stuff like video chat or call phones directly from your inbox.

Concerned: I’m worried about you

I’ve been your friend for a long time, so please know that when I say this, I am saying it from the heart.

I’m worried about you. Year after year goes by and you’re still using that outdated email program.  I can’t sit idly by and watch how this is affecting you and those around you, so I’m staging an email intervention and I’m committed to helping you make the switch to Gmail.

Think about it: is there any good reason not to enjoy superior spam protection, instant search, nested conversations and cool stuff like video chat or the ability to call phones directly from your inbox?      So I say to you, bluntly but lovingly: I realize change can be scary, but it’s time to switch to Gmail.  Do it for me, do it for everyone else in your life, but most importantly, do it for yourself.

I believe in you.

Outraged: You’re embarrassing me

If you had something stuck between your teeth or tissue paper stuck to your shoe, you’d want me to tell you, right?  Well, today I have to speak candidly to you about something even more embarrassing: your email address.

Yeah, I said it. It’s time to give up that email service you got when you first discovered the Internet and make the switch to Gmail.

I mean, think about it. Everyone else has tons of storage, instant search, nested conversations, even cool tools like video chat and the ability to call phones directly from your inbox.

Everyone but you, that is.

Seriously.  I’m sorry its come to this, but you’ve left me no choice but to stage an intervention. Trust me, I’m doing you a favor.  You don’t really want to be the only one who just doesn’t get it, do you?

No. You don’t. You really don’t. Time to suck it up and switch to Gmail.

Anyway the point of all this is its a proof that creative landing pages and marketing can be very effective and fun. People love it plus they  have a laugh and switch to gmail.  So Good one Google, seems like geeks can be funny :)

Save your friends from outdated email here!

Why Switch?

Gmail makes email easy and efficient. And maybe even fun. With Gmail, you’ll get lots of storage space, less spam, fast search and lots more.

But How?

After you sign up, you’ll see the option to transfer over messages and contacts from your old account. That way, you can pick up right where you left off.
