Viral Marketing Basics

Viral Marketing is one of the best ways for you to sell a
product or service. In fact, it's one of the best ways to
make a lot of sales.

How? Because thanks to the way that viral marketing
works, you don't need to have a big list, or a lot of money
to put into an advertising campaign – but you can still have
a huge impact.

First of all, let's go over exactly what viral marketing is.
Basically Viral Marketing is just a way of getting a bunch
of people to tell other people about something you have
created to build a buzz about your product or service. And,
by passing it around to other people, it builds social proof-
(because there's a kind of implied endorsement when you
send something to someone else.) Sometimes you get
lucky, and the more it's passed around the more it takes
on a life of its own.

A perfect example is the "Free Hugs" video on YouTube.
It has been viewed by millions of people, and the music,
a song written by a group called the "Sick Puppies".
That video was responsible for launching their singing
career – even though that was not the original intention.
That video – and the story behind it went viral and caught
the attention – and the hearts – of people all over the
world. It even spawned a movement that is still going on.

You may not be able to pull off a viral marketing campaign
that does as well as the "Free Hugs" video. But, if you are
willing to spend a little time researching your market and
your target audience, and can think outside the box, you
can create a very successful viral marketing campaign of
your own.

What kind of things can go viral? Obviously videos. (In fact
if you look at most of the "gurus" in the Internet Marketing
field, you'll see they're all heavily using videos to promote
their launches and create marketing campaigns that go
viral. However, if you don't have the desire to do videos,
you can go with that old standby – the "Special Report."
Podcasts, white papers, even case studies all have the
ability to go viral and get a lot of people very interested in
what you have to say – and sell.

To create a successful viral marketing campaign, it's very
important that you find the right mix of media, marketing
and audience. Make sure that your target audience is
going to be interested in what you have to say, the way
you're saying it, and how you're bringing it to their
attention. If you get these three things right, chances are
you'll have a winne.r on your hands, and your next
marketing campaign will go viral too.
