Viral marketing is an ambition that most marketers share, and for good reason. There is no better way so spread your message far and wide. Not only does your message get disseminated via social networks and blogs and email and popular online message boards, but when you create a viral marketing campaign you essentially recruit your target market to do your marketing for you. Consider one of the latest viral marketing videos: Gangnam Style by Korean hip-hop artist Psy. If you saw that video, it’s probably because one of your friends or acquaintances told you about it, mailed it to you or shared it with you on a social network. How many people did you tell about the video? That’s the power of viral marketing. To make any future campaign viral, include the following ingredients which are shared by most if not all viral marketing campaigns.
Every marketer’s dream is to go viral, to send an infographic or Gangnam Style-esque video spiraling across the Internet where it’s sure to return lots of attention (and hopefully revenue). Yet most marketers become frustrated when they attempt viral marketing campaigns. Many viral campaigns happen by pure chance. It’s common for marketers who experience viral campaigns to want to recreate that effect over and over. Actually making that happen is another story. You can tweak your viral marketing campaign for the new year to make your campaigns more susceptible to virility. While there’s no guarantee, the following tips to tweak your viral marketing campaign could have you seeing viral numbers in your near future.
The dream of any marketer is to create a viral marketing campaign. When you are able to create a video, image, e-report or any other marketing piece that spreads just like an actual virus, you’ll know you’ve hit the big time. Creating a viral marketing campaign is much easier said than done. However, you can stack your deck and put the odds in your favor by keeping these viral marketing tips in mind.
I talked a lot last week about my amazing new product: “ContestBurner”. It’s a Viral Marketing Contest plugin for WordPress. Then I launched a premium upgrade & a new membership club all based around it. Well, guess what… I messed up big time & I’m sorry about that.
I launched all this new stuff on last week’s live show and during all the excitement, my team & I put up the wrong pages! It was a confusing mess and a lot of people were very confused about the whole thing. So…
I mentioned yesterday that I launched a new viral marketing site called ContestBurner.com where you can get a copy of my viral marketing WordPress Plugin. The plugin lets you run your very own viral contest on any WordPress blog. I’m giving away the free version of the plugin early to all the visitors who participate in the contest.
I just launched Contest Burner the Viral Marketing WordPress Plugin that enables anyone with a WordPress blog to run a viral contest on their website. It’s extremely easy to set up: Just upload the plugin, activate it & in under 10 minutes you’ll have your very own viral marketing campaign running on your site!
