Viral Marketing 101 - Not Using It Could Kill Your Business!


This is one virtue a site must possess to lead the race in the ruthless competition in the Internet based business. With so many competition and rivalry going on, every method of marketing must be employed and utilized.

It doesn’t matter if you have a killer product or a fantastically designed website, if people don’t know that you exist, it doesn’t matter, and you are not going to make it big. Worse of all, you business could just get killed.

While there are so many methods and schemes used by so many e-commerce sites today, there are still some of those that can help you with an extra boost in the popularity ratings. One of these is the so called Viral Marketing.

While the term Viral easily depicts a virus, a word very much dreaded by all computer owners, it is not what it seems. You do not actually use a computer virus to spread your business; on the contrary it just might kill you. Everyone has had enough of all those pop up ads and spywares.

Viral Marketing Overview

Viral Marketing also known otherwise as Viral Advertising is a marketing technique used to build the public awareness of one’s product or company. They use many forms of media to reach out to the public without actually promoting the product by riding on in other forms of addictive means that could get a person hooked and be obliged or amused to actually pass it on, with the product or company advertisement along with it.

In a nutshell, companies ride on the idea that if people like the content of a media they will pass it on to their friends and family. They sponsor the certain media, such as a cool flash game, funny video, amusing story and such, which one may pass on to another with the company brand or logo or the products description or any other content to help promote the company or its product.

Viral marketing has become a popular means of advertising and marketing because they are relatively low cost. To avoid being tagged as spam mail, viral marketing counts on the eagerness of one person to pas on the product. If a person sees the name of the person they know as the sender, they won’t block it and open it as well.

Many companies offer incentives such as discounts and rebates when they help in spreading their viral marketing. They rely on the number of recipients a viral marketing gets from one person in determining the amount or number of incentive they can be attributed with.

Using Viral Marketing to your advantage

The main and foremost advantage of viral marketing is that you get a lot of publicity and public awareness about your site and your company. You get to generate a flow of traffic that are potential customers. With a little ingenuity and imagination, plus some incentives or prizes, you can reach out to a great number of people and announce your existence.

Most every site and companies are catching on to the effectivity of Viral Marketing and Advertising. Not using it could kill your business. Along with other schemes and methods in promoting your site, like Search Engine Optimization and such, viral marketing could easily push you ahead in the rating games.

Viral Marketing could be a sneaky way to get people to know about you and your company. You get them to pass your advertisement along. They are also very low cost that not investing in it could be downright a business suicide. All it takes is a great idea, a good addicting game, a funny story many ideas are still out there. Create a gossip or a buzz, many movies are promoted by using scandals and gossips to make them moiré popular. Remember the movie “The Blair Witch Project”?

Many big companies have tried viral marketing and have had many success stories with it. A classic example is Microsoft’s Hotmail. They were the first known big company to utilize the scheme and it has worked wonders for them.

Now it’s your turn to use viral marketing to work wonders for you. Act now and reap the benefits Viral Marketing will provide for you and your sales figures.

HI Robert:  Thank you for your post; which way do you suggest that
I use Viral Marketing?  Your post did not list a direction for me to
use your argument.  I well agree with what you said.         Apsense:
is a great example - You post in the forum and your links are on the
posts for all to read and visit.   I have visited this
Travel site, I am at a loss as to how to use it other than to book
a vacation.  I need more funds to do that.
Http://   Is this site paying an income
at this time?  I realize that they just started and aside from general
membership fees I know of no other revenue movement with the
company.  Yes, I have an account.

Have you ever heard of Vital Viral?  It is a system of list building
that uses free advertising to get people to join your list.  It has
been very successful for me.  I have 300 + people in my down line.
We are all marketers, and are interested in earning an income on
line.   Http://  for those that wish
to do the same.

My primary business was started with the list from Vital Viral, once
started it has grown to over 1,000 on my list (this is in addition to
the Vital Viral system).  I would not, make an offer to anyone on
my list, without making sure the offer would be profitable to some
one that honestly work at it.  That is why I LOVE my primary business.

Visit my website, there is a banner that reads "Winners Never Quit"
key on it and learn how to get thousand of visitors to your website

Hi, Robert,

YOu have started an interesting threadto which I can attest as being vital for expanding a list.

I have used My Viral Spiral to build my list, but it has another advantage over other list builders. It allows one to rebrand PLR's and then allows whomever buys the product to rebrand it in their name. So you have a multiplying effect in income, as the customer's customer also gives you an income.

It is a fairly new innovation, and has helped many to build their lists with added advantage.
