Chris Hirst and Leo Zhao took to the air to promote their venture.
People go to great lengths to promote their products but Chris Hirst and Leo Zhao went a step further – right out of an airplane.
They say their Kiwi start-up, which allows users to create a personal website using a mobile, tablet or desktop, is so easy to use that building a page can be done anywhere–and they set out to prove it.
“We thought we’d jump out of a plane and create and publish a web page on the way down,” said Mr. Hirst in a video about the jump.
“Actually, we jumped twice just to prove how crazy we are,” he added. In the first jump they took footage and then used it create a webpage on the second jump. The webpage includes video, images, text and a slideshow and took roughly a minute of the jump.
