• An attempt to spread marketing message that
spreads quickly and exponentially among
consumers to increase brand awareness.
• Video clips, Flash Games, Images, E-books
• Viral marketing is a strategy that allows to
spread marketing messages and ads, over many
different types of social media sites.
• These messages or ads multiply rapidly and are
sent to thousands of people, just like viruses.
What is Viral Marketing?
A promotional method that is of the customers, by
customers, and for customers

“Like viruses, take advantage of the rapid
multiplication to explode the message to thousands –
or even to millions”
Viral marketing
Differences
Advantages
 Accessed by millions of people per day
 Quicker way of reaching the customer

 Saves on advertising costs within companies
 Customize the message to your preference

 Can easily be directed to your exact target market
 Sometimes gives the company a good reputation
Disadvantages
 Can be annoying and be considered as spam
 Only benefits the company if an actual sale is made from the ad
 Focuses more on short term success
 Many competitors can easily imitate the viral marketing
techniques and steal the market from other companies

 Can put out a negative impact on the company, in the same
timing that it puts a positive impact on the company
Examples
• Hotmail - When Hotmail launched, much of its early
success was due to the virality of the sigline that it
attached to every outgoing email inviting the recipient to
join. One of the earliest examples of viral marketing on the
internet.
• Will it Blend - One of the most recent best viral marketing
campaign examples, Blendtec’s will it blend video series
shows scientists testing if various household items will
blend in their super-powerful blender. This campaign
leveraged the popularity of online video sharing sites.
Examples
• Simpsonsize Yourself - Created for the Simpsons
movie, this site allowed visitors to create an avatar
of themselves as a character from the cartoon.
• Mentos/Diet Coke - Another wacky scientist schtick,
these guys got famous by making art out of the
explosions caused by mixing diet coke and mentos.
Mentos handled it beautifully, Coke did not.
Viral Marketing Mistakes
• Failing to make it interesting enough to pass
along
• Failing to provide incentives to encourage
people to pass your message along
• Focusing on a single viral piece rather than a
viral process
• Failing to test and track the results
• Not recognizing it is different from word-ofmouth marketing
