  • Viral marketing uses people’s electronic connectivity to increase the velocity of word of mouth. People with similar interests, needs and lifestyles tend to pass on and share interesting and entertaining content.
  • The art of creating viral content is knowing the difference between a good idea, and a good idea that’s likely become viral. It’s creating more than just videos.
  • First started on July 2009 - 13.8 million views in next week (shattered all Viral Video Chart view count records this week by generating a staggering 13.8 million views, an increase of over 650% from last week.)-- more than twice the amount of all the other campaigns on the chart combined. It's already the most-viewed viral video ad campaign of the year and was launched just last month. Impressive
  • The success of this campaign speaks to the importance of pre-launch campaign planning followed by sustained marketing support. 'Launching hard' with lovable content and continually refreshing it with new creative assets seem to be key ingredients for successful viral video ad campaigns. Of course, talented babies help too.
  • Tom Dickson, the Blendtec founder, has been nominated for the 2007 YouTube award for Best Series, winner of .Net Magazine's 2007 Viral Video campaign of the year and winner of the Bronze level Clio Award for Viral Video in 2008. Between YouTube and the Will it Blend? Website, the program has now surpassed 100 million hits. Traffic to the company's website has increased by 650% since the introduction of the videos, while Blendtec's online sales have increased five-fold.
  • This commercial was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK after they received numerous complaints about animal cruelty. They even tried to make one featuring a pigeon which is considered to be a pest and that film got banned as well. However, the one above became wildly popular on the Internet and in the end had a far greater impact on brand awareness than could have been achieved through traditional channels so there are pros and cons with everything.
