Viral Marketing is nothing but use of "Word Of Mouth" strategy. For example, Somebody like some of your product. Definitely, he/she will talk about it to other people in his/her contact. So in a way your product is getting marketed.

Viral marketing is when you made an interesting "thing" and was marketed or promoted by people through media en masse. As it becomes more popular it will increase its reach to a larger prospect.

This usually happens without knowing that it worked. Making content that is very interesting to your niche are more likely to get viral online.

I believe to make a strong move into the world of viral marketing is to first know where you wish to make it and then, it is all about how would you want to do it. Know the existing trend and make sure that your content is targeting the trend. The header should be so good that people would not be able to stop themselves from giving one look to your content.

Saying things like "let's do viral marketing!" or "I need a viral marketing idea" is ridiculous.

What you mean to say is- I need a great idea for an online video, a guerrilla marketing idea etc.

"Viral" in and of itself is not the medium as several different types of advertising can go viral. Stop thinking about doing "viral marketing" and just focus on putting out great, interesting content. If it's actually interesting, then it will be shared repeatedly and go viral.

Viral marketing , as it is likewise known, is the demonstration of advertising data or items that different clients are constrained to provide for different companions, partners and gang. In the past times, this was known as "expressions of mouth" showcasing.

The short answer is marketing to your current clients or customers and invite them to pass your information on to their friends with similar interests.

Example: You have a department store selling sporting goods. You send out email promoting a number of things to include kayaks. Someone interested in your sale forwards your email to his friends who enjoy kayaking.

Kayaking is a very vertical (narrow) market. How better to promote your kayaks than from one kayaker to another.

It's a great way to market. They say if you create a "buzz" about something, you can get people to spread the word. That's "viral" marketing.
