Viral Marketing Tips And Traps
By Cody Moya
Viral marketing is one of the most effective, and cheapest, forms of
marketing for any affiliate program. There are a number of
ways to make any viral marketing campaign more effective, and a few of
our favorites are listed below.
The best way to create a viral product is to provide valuable
information or entertainment to the public, while at the same time
focusing information on your main product. For instance, an affiliate
for a seller of fishing products could provide a valuable article on
the top fishing spots in North America. It is easy to see how
this information would be very useful to all types of fishermen, and
how the article can spread quickly through word of mouth.
It is important for the content you provide to be focused on
information, and to not be seen as just an ad. While it is fine to
include some subtle suggestions to buy your affiliate's products, the
main focus of the viral product should be to provide valuable
information to your target audience.
the reader to take action
The viral product should include some sort of information
that urges the reader to take action. The action can be either
visiting your squeeze page or clicking through your affiliate link to
buy a product. Again, it is important to make this suggestion
as subtle as possible, and to avoid the impression that the article is
nothing more than an ad.
the user to give the product away
When creating your viral product, it is important to let
the reader know that they have your permission to give the product
away. Many readers are uneasy about passing on content for
fear of copyright issues, so it is important to let users know that
they have your permission to pass the product along and give it away.
In addition, many viral products are designed to be brandable, meaning
that the user can adapt the product, change some of the links or even
add their own links. Allowing people to customize the product
you create will encourage them to give it away.
There is no doubt that viral marketing can be a powerful tool to drive
targeted traffic to both your web site and those of your affiliated
merchants. By following the suggestions listed above, you
should be able to create viral products that quickly spread around the
world, and bring back business to you for many years to
come. Many viral products created years ago are still out
there on the web, continuing to provide free marketing and free
advertising for their original creators.
