Despite the fact that viral marketing has been around for some time, unfortunately, due to its complexity, there are no best practices to follow and no measurements to apply to manage the process. As a result, companies have taken a “hit & miss” approach and have treated viral marketing more of an art than a science.
So far, viral marketing has been compared to the weather: fairly important, but not much you can do about it. Until recently, the majority of companies have “left it to Beaver”, have resorted to fake gimmicks, or have paid brand ambassadors to generate buzz, and when all else failed, they paid their way through by showering their constituents with incentives and by employing “hired guns”.
