Viral Marketing - Seeking Opinons From Members About Its Validity.
 
:standingw I am seeking opinions from forum members, in the know, about the use of viral marketing as an advertising campaign technique to promote one of my home businesses. I am a member of Success University online, (my signature has my member url if anyone is interested), and wish to employ as many marketing campaigns as possible, (with viral marketing being one of them).
I would like to hear from people who have experience at doing this for their opinions about the effectiveness of viral marketing. I have done research on the Internet about this, and am looking for legit and valid sites that offer this marketing campaign at reasonable costs. I have seen sites that offer free viral marketing, but there always seem to be some quirky requirements attached to their promotions and they do not appear to be trustworthy!
What do other members think?
Thanks,
Jeff

Viral marketing can be great but it can also blow up in your face if done poorly so I'd be really careful about using any service offering free viral marketing.

Before you start make sure you know exactly who your target audience is, know what you want to accomplish and have a plan in place to handle a successful campaign. You'll also want to have a plan in place in case things go wrong.

About free viral marketing
 
Robert,
Thanks for the info. As I stated in my original thread, I already am extremely skeptical about getting involved in any so-called "free" viral marketing campaigns. I was hoping to hear from other forum members who have experiences with successful and legit viral marketing sites on the net.

Thanks again,
Jeff
