  Viral Marketing - Overview

Viral marketing is a form of online marketing that uses a “word-of-mouth” technique to spread its message. The term "viral" refers to how quickly a message propagates via links in e-mails, e-newsletters, blogs and websites that point to a product or service people might find of interest.

The goal of a viral marketer is to generate a "buzz" about a product or idea, inducing users to relay the marketing message to others and create an exponential growth in the message’s visibility and effect.

This form of online marketing is important because it ensures a high and rapid response rate. Comparatively less expensive than direct mailing, the main strength of viral marketing is its ability to attract a large number of interested people at a low cost.

However, its weakness is that it is hard to control. Like the "telephone game" that children play, the marketing message may become distorted as it passes from ear to ear.

Elements of a Viral Marketing Campaign

There are six elements that make up a viral marketing strategy. Although not all six are necessary, the more you can incorporate into your website marketing strategy, the more powerful your results are likely to be.

A classic example of a successful viral marketing campaign was the one done for,the first Web-based, free email service. Hotmail automatically attached a brief message at the end of everybody’s email, suggesting they sign up for this free service. After two years, more than 12 million people had Hotmail email accounts.

An effective marketing strategy comprises of:

    - Free products or services
    - Effortless transmission of the message
    - Easy scalability from small to very large
    - Exploiting common human behaviors
    - Using existing communication networks
    - Making use the resources of others

Free Products or Services

Most viral campaigns give valuable products away to attract attention. Free software programs, free ringtones, free e-books are just some examples. Although they may not profit today, by freely giving away these products marketers hope to create a surge of interest they can profit from later.

Free attracts visibility; this visibility also highlights other products that you are selling, and finally you end up making sales. This kind of attention can bring in valuable email addresses, advertising revenue, and e-commerce sales opportunities.

Effortless Transmission of the Message

The medium you choose to propagate your message must be able to easily transfer and replicate. Some examples include email, a website, discussion forums and free software downloads. Viral marketing works extremely well on the Web because instant communication is easy and cheap. The digital format makes duplication simple.

The marketing message itself must also be brief so that is can be easily be transmitted with out getting distorted.

Easy Scalability from Small to Large

Scalability must be considered when developing your viral marketing campaign. The flaw in the Hotmail viral model was that it required its own mail servers to transmit its message. If the strategy was wildly successful, mail servers would have to been needed much more sooner than anticipated. A lack of mail servers would have grinded the campaign to a halt.

Exploiting Common Human Behaviors

A good viral marketing campaign will take advantage of human motivations such as the desire to be cool, or the need to be popular. The urge to display and communicate this savviness produces millions of websites and email messages.

Designing a strategy that plays on this type of behavior for its transmission has excellent chances of being successful.

Using Existing Communication Networks

Your potential customers, like in real life, develop relationships online. They collect email addresses and bookmark websites. Affiliate websites and programs, and opt-in email campaigns exploit these networks. By placing your marketing message into these existing communication channels, you can exponentially multiply its circulation.

Making use of Others’ Resources

The most clever viral marketing campaigns use others’ resources to get their message out. Affiliate programs use of this strategy by placing links on other websites to drive web traffic. Authors who give away their articles, press releases, even banner advertising – they use someone else’s news service or web page to relay their message. Someone else’s resources are being depleted instead of yours.

  Viral marketing techniques you can use to increase your traffic

Viral marketing is one of the newest and most powerful ways to market your product or your Internet service. With Viral marketing strategies you can increase your web traffic tremendously with minimal effort.

I am going to show you several ways to market your product virally.

Viral marketing is all about giving away your own free product, e-book, article, software, or service along with your ad copy. Then your website or affiliate links are embedded into the content and take the visitor back to your website.

In turn, recipients of your free product are allowed to pass it along to their own clients,prospects, visitors and others as a freebie. This multiplies your marketing with less effort.

Here are some VIRAL MARKETING techniques you can start using right away.

Give a way a free e-book to your website visitors. Include a nice full-color ad for your most popular product line with links to your website and email. Tell your visitors to share copies of the e-book with their own site visitors and other contacts. Do a search for viral e-book compilers and you can find one quickly.

Many affiliate programs will give you free viral e-books that you can use to insert your own affiliate links into. When your web surfers download, read these e-books, click on the links, and make purchases, you make cash.

Provide a trial or “lite” version of your software with your website visitors as a freebie. Don't forget to include that ad for your most popular product line with links to your website and email. And tell recipients to share copies of the software with their own site visitors and other contacts. For help creating software, hire help from online bid sites like

offer to host small business web sites on your server at no charge. In exchange, place your own banner ad at the top of the site for viral marketing. You can setup a fold for their site and they can choose their own domain name and have it redirected to that folder.

Design your own website or other templates, include your own marketing information on them and give them away as free downloads or as an electronic package. Grant permission for recipients to pass them along. Encourage them to do so.

Write articles about your industry. Include your website and contact information in the byline and grant permission for others to publish as long as they keep the byline in tact.

You can also use article submission service to do this as well.

Then people can use your contact on websites, in ezines, newsletters and other places where once again, viral marketing will speed the spread of information about your business.

Set up a Discussion Board on your website with your banner ad attached at the top. And invite others to link to it and use it for their own sites. Make sure that you will maintain the discussion. You can also post on other boards with a link back to your board.

In summary, by using viral marketing strategies, you can reach out all over the Internet with much less effort. See which methods work best for you and repeat them as often as needed. Keep persevering.

  Viral marketing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The buzzwords viral marketing and viral advertising refer to marketing techniques that use pre-existing social networks to produce increases in brand awareness or to achieve other marketing objectives (such as product sales) through self-replicating viral processes, analogous to the spread of pathological and computer viruses. It can be word-of-mouth delivered or enhanced by the network effects of the Internet. Viral promotions may take the form of video clips, interactive Flash games, advergames, e-books, brandable software, images, or even text messages.

The goal of marketers interested in creating successful viral marketing programs is to identify individuals with high Social Networking Potential (SNP) and create Viral Messages that appeal to this segment of the population and have a high probability of being taken by another competitor.

The term "viral marketing" has also been used pejoratively to refer to stealth marketing campaigns—the unscrupulous use of astroturfing on-line combined with under-market advertising in shopping centers to create the impression of spontaneous word of mouth enthusiasm.


There is debate on the origination and the popularization of the term Viral Marketing, though some of the earliest uses of the current term are attributed to Harvard Business School graduate Tim Draper and Harvard Business School faculty member Jeffrey Rayport. The term was later popularized by Jeffrey Rayport in his 1996 Fast Company article 'The Virus of Marketing' , and Tim Draper and Steve Jurvetson of the venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson in 1997 to describe Hotmail's e-mail practice of appending advertising for itself in outgoing mail from their users.

Among the first to write about viral marketing on the Internet was media critic Douglas Rushkoff in his 1994 book Media Virus: Hidden Agendas in Popular Culture. The assumption is that if such an advertisement reaches a "susceptible" user, that user will become "infected" (i.e., accept the idea) and will then go on to share the idea with others "infecting them," in the viral analogy's terms. As long as each infected user shares the idea with more than one susceptible user on average (i.e., the basic reproductive rate is greater than one - the standard in epidemiology for qualifying something as an epidemic), the number of infected users will grow according to a logistic curve, whose initial segment appears exponential. Of course, the marketing campaign may be wildly successful even if the rate at which things are spread isn't of epidemic proportions, if this user-to-user sharing is sustained by other forms of marketing communications, such as public relations or advertising.

Among the first to write about algorithms designed to identify people with high Social Networking Potential is Bob Gerstley in Advertising Research is Changing. Gerstley uses SNP algorithms in quantitative marketing research to help marketers maximize the effectiveness of viral marketing campaigns. In 2004 the concept of Alpha User was released to indicate that it had become now possible to technically isolate the focal point members of any viral campaign, the "hubs" who are most influential. Alpha Users can today be isolated and identified, and even targeted for viral advertising purposes most accurately in mobile phone networks, as mobile phones are so personal.

In response to its use, many sites have started up trying to describe what viral marketing is.

 Notable examples

    - The Ponzi scheme and related investment Pyramid schemes, are early examples of viral marketing. In each round, investors are paid interest from the principal deposits of later investors. Early investors are so enthusiastic that they recruit their friends resulting in exponential growth until the pool of available investors is tapped out and the scheme collapses.

    - Multi-level marketing popularized in the 1960s and '70s (not to be confused with Ponzi schemes) is essentially a form of viral marketing in which representatives gain income through marketing products through their circle of influence and give their friends a chance to market products similarly. When successful, the strategy creates an exponentially growing network of representatives and greatly enriches adopters. Examples include Amway and Mary Kay Cosmetics among many others.

    - Early in its existence (perhaps between 1988 and 1992), the television show Mystery Science Theater 3000 had limited distribution. The producers encouraged viewers to makes copies of the show on video tapes and give them to friends in order to expand viewership and increase demand for the fledgling Comedy Central network. During this period the closing credits included the words "Keep circulating the tapes!"

    - In 2000, Slate described TiVo's unpublicized gambit of giving free TiVo's to web-savvy enthusiasts to create "viral" word of mouth, pointing out that a viral campaign differs from a publicity stunt.

    - In 2001, BusinessWeek described web-based campaigns for Hotmail (1996) and The Blair Witch Project (1999) as striking examples of viral marketing, but warned of some dangers for imitation marketers.

    - Launched in 2002, BMW Films was among the earliest viral marketing campaigns. It attracted nearly 55 million viewers and helped to elevate the career of Clive Owen.

    - Burger King's The Subservient Chicken campaign, running from 2004 until 2007, was cited in Wired magazine as a striking example of viral or word-of-mouth marketing.

    - Cadbury's Dairy Milk 2007 Gorilla advertising campaign was heavily popularised on YouTube and Facebook.

    - The release of the 2007 concept album Year Zero by Nine Inch Nails involved a viral marketing campaign, including the band leaving USB drives at concerts during NIN's 2007 European Tour. This was followed up with a series of interlinked websites revealing clues and information about the dystopian future in which the album is set.

    - In 2007, World Wrestling Entertainment promoted the return of Chris Jericho with a viral marketing campaign using 15-second cryptic binary code videos. The videos contained hidden messages and biblical links related to Jericho, although speculation existed throughout WWE fans over whom the campaign targeted. The text "Save Us" and "2nd Coming" were most prominent in the videos. The campaign spread throughout the internet with numerous websites, though no longer operational, featuring hidden messages and biblical links to further hint at Jericho's return.

    - In 2007 the New York Times' advertising columnist Stuart Elliott wrote about a business-to-business viral campaign for a software company, showing that viral advertising has application in areas outside of consumer marketing.

    - In 2007, Portuguese football club Sporting Portugal integrated a viral feature in their campaign for season seats. In their website, a video required the user to input his name and phone number before playback started, which then featured the coach Paulo Bento and the players waiting at the locker room while he makes a phone call to the user telling him that they just can't start the season until the user buys his season ticket.[13] Flawless video and phone call synchronization and the fact that it was a totally new experience for the user led to nearly 200,000 pageviews phone calls in less than 24 hours.

    - claimed that a 25-year old virgin living in Toronto named Geoff needed five million hits on his website in 30 days in order for Jenn, one of his very hot platonic female friends, to help him lose his virginity.

    - The 2008 film Cloverfield was first publicized with a teaser trailer that did not advertise the film's title, only its release date: "01·18·08." Elements of the viral marketing campaign included MySpace pages created for fictional characters and websites created for fictional companies alluded to in the film.

    - The Big Word Project, launched in 2008, aims to redefine the Oxford English Dictionary by allowing people to submit their website as the definition of their chosen word. The viral marketing project, created to fund two Masters students' educations, attracted the attention of bloggers worldwide, being featured on Daring Fireball and Wired Magazine.

    - The marketing campaign for the 2008 film The Dark Knight combined both online and real-life elements to make it resemble an alternate reality game. Techniques included mass gatherings of Joker fans, scavenger hunts around world, detailed and intricate websites that let fans actually participate in "voting" for political offices in Gotham City, and even a Gotham News Network that has links to other Gotham pages such as Gotham Rail, a Gotham travel agency, and political candidate's pages. The movie also markets heavily off of word of mouth from the thousands of Batman fans.

    - Both the second and third games in the Halo series were preceded with viral marketing in the form of an alternate reality game called I Love Bees for the second game, and Iris for the third game.

    - "Will it blend" - the founder of Blendtec, Tom Dickson, blends various items (such as light bulbs and iPhones) in a Blendtec blender in an ongoing series of YouTube videos, which has gained a large internet following.

    - In December, 2009, podcasters of The Mike O'Meara Show launched a viral marketing campaign on Facebook to encourage others to download the show.

    - Between December 2009 and March 2010 a series of 6 videos were posted to YouTube under the name "iamamiwhoami" leading to speculation that they were a marketing campaign for a musician. In March 2010 an anonymous package was sent to an MTV journalist claiming to contain a code in connection to the videos.

 Viral expansion loop

A viral expansion loop is similar to viral marketing with one notable difference: viral marketing can't be replicated indefinitely, while a viral expansion loop must be in order for it to exist. When properly conceived and implemented, a viral loop almost guarantees self-replicating growth. Companies that have attempted to utilize viral loops to their advantage include social networking engine Ning, and viral loops power many Web 2.0 icons, including Twitter, 4chan ,Orkut, PayPal, YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Digg and Flickr.

You can see that with a few multiplication a virus can grow and explode to a vast numbers.

Viral Marketing Defined

What does a virus have to do with marketing? Viral marketing describes any strategy that encourages individuals to pass on a marketing message to others, creating the potential for exponential growth in the message's exposure and influence. Like viruses, such strategies take advantage of rapid multiplication to explode the message to thousands, to millions.

Off the Internet, viral marketing has been referred to as "word-of-mouth," "creating a buzz," "leveraging the media," "network marketing." But on the Internet, for better or worse, it's called "viral marketing." While others smarter than I have attempted to rename it, to somehow domesticate and tame it, I won't try. The term "viral marketing" has stuck.
The Classic Example

The classic example of viral marketing is, one of the first free Web-based e-mail services. The strategy is simple:

   1. Give away free e-mail addresses and services,
   2. Attach a simple tag at the bottom of every free message sent out: "Get your private, free email at" and,
   3. Then stand back while people e-mail to their own network of friends and associates,
   4. Who see the message,
   5. Sign up for their own free e-mail service, and then
   6. Propel the message still wider to their own ever-increasing circles of friends and associates.

Like tiny waves spreading ever farther from a single pebble dropped into a pond, a carefully designed viral marketing strategy ripples outward extremely rapidly.
Elements of a Viral Marketing Strategy

Accept this fact. Some viral marketing strategies work better than others, and few work as well as the simple strategy. But below are the six basic elements you hope to include in your strategy. A viral marketing strategy need not contain ALL these elements, but the more elements it embraces, the more powerful the results are likely to be. An effective viral marketing strategy:

   1. Gives away products or services
   2. Provides for effortless transfer to others
   3. Scales easily from small to very large
   4. Exploits common motivations and behaviors
   5. Utilizes existing communication networks
   6. Takes advantage of others' resources

Let's examine at each of these elements briefly.

1. Gives away valuable products or services

"Free" is the most powerful word in a marketer's vocabulary. Most viral marketing programs give away valuable products or services to attract attention. Free e-mail services, free information, free "cool" buttons, free software programs that perform powerful functions but not as much as you get in the "pro" version. Wilson's Second Law of Web Marketing is "The Law of Giving and Selling" ( "Cheap" or "inexpensive" may generate a wave of interest, but "free" will usually do it much faster. Viral marketers practice delayed gratification. They may not profit today, or tomorrow, but if they can generate a groundswell of interest from something free, they know they will profit "soon and for the rest of their lives" (with apologies to "Casablanca"). Patience, my friends. Free attracts eyeballs. Eyeballs then see other desirable things that you are selling, and, presto! you earn money. Eyeballs bring valuable e-mail addresses, advertising revenue, and e-commerce sales opportunities. Give away something, sell something.

2. Provides for effortless transfer to others

Public health nurses offer sage advice at flu season: stay away from people who cough, wash your hands often, and don't touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Viruses only spread when they're easy to transmit. The medium that carries your marketing message must be easy to transfer and replicate: e-mail, website, graphic, software download. Viral marketing works famously on the Internet because instant communication has become so easy and inexpensive. Digital format make copying simple. From a marketing standpoint, you must simplify your marketing message so it can be transmitted easily and without degradation. Short is better. The classic is: "Get your private, free email at" The message is compelling, compressed, and copied at the bottom of every free e-mail message.

3. Scales easily from small to very large

To spread like wildfire the transmission method must be rapidly scalable from small to very large. The weakness of the Hotmail model is that a free e-mail service requires its own mailservers to transmit the message. If the strategy is wildly successful, mailservers must be added very quickly or the rapid growth will bog down and die. If the virus multiplies only to kill the host before spreading, nothing is accomplished. So long as you have planned ahead of time how you can add mailservers rapidly you're okay. You must build in scalability to your viral model.

4. Exploits common motivations and behaviors

Clever viral marketing plans take advantage of common human motivations. What proliferated "Netscape Now" buttons in the early days of the Web? The desire to be cool. Greed drives people. So does the hunger to be popular, loved, and understood. The resulting urge to communicate produces millions of websites and billions of e-mail messages. Design a marketing strategy that builds on common motivations and behaviors for its transmission, and you have a winner.

5. Utilizes existing communication networks

Most people are social. Nerdy, basement-dwelling computer science grad students are the exception. Social scientists tell us that each person has a network of 8 to 12 people in their close network of friends, family, and associates. A person's broader network may consist of scores, hundreds, or thousands of people, depending upon her position in society. A waitress, for example, may communicate regularly with hundreds of customers in a given week. Network marketers have long understood the power of these human networks, both the strong, close networks as well as the weaker networked relationships. People on the Internet develop networks of relationships, too. They collect e-mail addresses and favorite website URLs. Affiliate programs exploit such networks, as do permission e-mail lists. Learn to place your message into existing communications between people, and you rapidly multiply its dispersion.

6. Takes advantage of others' resources

The most creative viral marketing plans use others' resources to get the word out. Affiliate programs, for example, place text or graphic links on others' websites. Authors who give away free articles, seek to position their articles on others' webpages. A news release can be picked up by hundreds of periodicals and form the basis of articles seen by hundreds of thousands of readers. Now someone else's newsprint or webpage is relaying your marketing message. Someone else's resources are depleted rather than your own.

Viral marketing aka Buzz marketing, WOM - Word of mouth marketing or social marketing. Viral marketing shares principles with MLM or multi level network marketing although it is not necessarily as organized or controllable. It is referred to viral because it spreads like a virus. Like a wildfire or butterfly effect. It is very hard to control but if your core message is something good you have nothing to worry about. Set it free and watch it fly. If it is something that over promises and under delivers then viral marketing is your public enemy number 1.

Your online organic viral marketing is simply people spreading the word through blog feeds, referring to you & your site or gospel on forums, in live chat rooms, shout boxes and blogs.

There are also Viral marketing scripts and systems in place. They work simply because the viewers also have something to gain. They might visit your message only to collect a point or to earn a credit to setting up their own message. This kind of Viral marketing produces a massive amount of low-yield traffic BUT if your message is good, a small percentage of the viewers will react, buy, bookmark or simply return later. Even a small percentage out of a massive matrix based VM galaxy can be a significant and ever GROWING number.

With Millions of pages added to the internet every hour you need to utilize all methods known to internet marketers including viral marketing.

Here are some of the best viral marketing channels out there. The good news is they are all free.(true to Viral marketing form)

  Advantages and Disadvantages of Viral Marketing

The term 'viral marketing' was coined by Tim Draper, a Harvard Business School graduate and used extensively to describe the e-mails that aided advertising of products. Viral marketing or chain marketing optimizes the extent to which social networking can benefit sales. There is extensive word-of-mouth viral promotion of products and services that is implemented. Depending on the quantum of sales, the strategy may also include video clips, interactive forums, advergames, newsletters, e-books and images accompanied by dedicated text messages. However, viral marketing is not without its own unique advantages and disadvantages.

How Does Viral Marketing Work?

The basic idea is to generate an 'infection' of thought among the base users, who are also lured into the advertising gimmick for a promised commission that increases with every subsequent sale. The ripple effect created and paid for involves sharing of product benefits with potential users and causing nothing short of an epidemic, while generating multi level marketing opportunities. There is a pre-designed logistic curve to map the users used to further the interests of the campaign. The success of the marketing campaign largely depends on the rate at which the sales take place. Viral marketing strategies are often put in place alongside other marketing communication systems such as dedicated public relations and/or extensive advertising.

The goal of viral marketing programs is to identify people who can contribute to sales via quality social networking potential. The aim is to generate viral or easy to understand and replicate messages that appeal to the common man and generate a dedicated marketing environment. Extensive social networking helps to increase the probability of the product or service remaining within the community for a longer time. Viral marketing is a stealth marketing campaign that uses unscrupulous means of under-market advertising to generate an impression that the word of mouth enthusiasm actually springs from use of the product or service.

Advantages of Viral Marketing:

    - Viral marketing enables businesses to remain buoyant within the competitive business world, via a strategy that is not only easy to integrate within a defined buyer-society, but also one of that empowers the unattached onlooker with training, marketing tips and guidance.

    - This marketing strategy enables business propositions to reach out to a global audience, by effectively putting the Internet connectivity to play. Extensive use of Internet affiliate marketing, ezines and interactive forums enables the entrepreneur to promote the business, globally.

    - The word-of-mouth concept ripples on to peer-to-peer recommendation of the product or service. It also enables the business to generate revenue from local interest in the venture.

Disadvantages of Viral Marketing:

    - In the viral marketing strategy, association with groups and individuals who are unknown could generate scope for the promotion to be subject to competitor viewing. The strength of the marketing depends on the transmission of enthusiasm between people, with regards to the benefits of the product being sold. The presence of a competitor within the generated link could dampen the desired strain.

    - Exposure to the Internet, to further the interests of entrepreneurship and generate additional revenue from a global clientèle is not without spam threats, unwanted marketing mix, and also brand dilution .

    - Hard core selling to benefit from increased commission is widely responsible for many potential buyers being put off.

Is Viral Marketing Still Effective

Viral marketing is capable of generating high product credibility at low cost. The advertising technique is great in the endeavor of making a particular product or service available across physical boundaries with dedicated Internet marketing and shows high efficiency in generating the opportunity for consistent promotions and commissions.

Stop with the enforced e-mail forwards already! Trying to force or bribe people to forward your info to a friends or family in order to be rewarded or win looks skanky in today's ultra-permission-based world. Especially when you tell visitors nothing about their friend's or family’s privacy in the space directly next to the e-mail form.

A true viral campaign gets forwarded because consumers are compelled to do so by the glory of the content, not because you bribed them with points or something else.

What absolutely will not work:

Suggesting that e-mail recipients forward your message to their friends and family will not work. Adding a line at the bottom of your e-mail that reads "Please feel free to forward this message to a friend" is more likely to get it deleted than forwarded.

What absolutely will work:

Offering something worthy of sharing like a valuable discount, vital information or offering an incentive for sharing like additional entries into a sweepstakes or an added discount or premium service will work.

Relevant or timely information, research, or studies that are included in your e-mail might encourage the recipients to share with their family and friends. Interactive content like a quiz or test, especially if it’s fun, will inspire forwarding.

Jokes and cartoons are almost always forwarded to everybody the recipient knows. Why? Because they are entertaining and entertainment is meant to be shared.

A really cool multimedia experience is always going to achieve a lot of pass-along. Rich media is new and the novelty and tech factors alone are often enough to make the e-mail recipient eager to share it.

Oops! Almost forgot one really important thing…. You can craft a brilliant e-mail following all the rules, but if a consumer visits your site and has an experience less than what was promised, you are going to achieve viral marketing, alright… the bad kind. So be certain that your product or service is ready and is as advertised.

Is Viral Marketing Used By Internet Businesses?

Yes! Viral marketing has grown to be one of the most effective and explosive methods of succeeding in the online world of business. Viral marketing has also been referred to as the perpetual marketing machine. This is because viral marketing can infinitely grow from just one opt-in to become an avalanche of hungry customers begging you for what you’re offering. An example of this is the very popular social networking site called Facebook. On February 4th 2004, four students founded that social networking site. Their goals at the time were far different then what the site has become today. Simply looking for a date these four went to work on constructing one of the best free social networking sites ever designed. By the end of 2006, the site had grown to the 7th most visited site in the English speaking world. Not the mention revenues in excess of $100 million dollars. Their most recent forecast shows that they’ll reach 60 million users by the end of this year. Facebook’s insane growth is 100% attributed to viral marketing.

WOW, just doesn’t quite say it…

3 Sure-fire Ways to Get Free Viral Traffic to Your Website

One of the most important numbers for your website will be your value per visitor, and even if you have a very high value per visitor, you still may make any profits. If your current VPV is 30 cents, and you are paying Google 30 cents per click for your advertising, then you aren't making anything. But on the same token, let's pretend you took the time to implement a few viral marketing tactics for your website, and let's pretend that you starting to get 300 free website visitors per day. That would mean a $90 profit each day for your business. That's $2,700 per month and $32,850 per year in profits. There are 3 sure-fire ways to get this viral traffic to your website and I want to share them with you.

One of the most popular ways for getting free viral traffic to your websites is by creating a viral e-Book; the only problem is that many people do it all wrong. Many people will write a book report and call it an e-Book. What I mean by this is that many people will write a 30 page guide, put everything is 18 point font, give people resale and master distribution rights, and call it good. Now, some people write really great 30 page e-Books with killer content, but in the majority of cases, if you really want your viral eBook to be shared with everyone, then a 30 page "book report" isn't going to work!

So, here's the real secret to creating a great viral eBook: You are going to want to make the content so great that you would find people across the web selling similar content for $30, $50, $100 or more. You want people to read your book and then think to themselves that the information was so great that they would have been willing to pay for the information. When people think this to themselves, then they will want to include your eBook as a free bonus on their site, give it away, or resell your eBook for a profit. You will mention your websites and maybe include a few affiliate links in your eBook so that you get free traffic and maybe make some extra income for your efforts.

A second very popular way for you to create free viral marketing for your website is to provide great resources on your site. It is very popular to see sites giving away free e-Courses or newsletters. I have done this a number of times and it works very well. You can also give away your viral e-Books, free recorded calls, coupons, free reports, etc. Basically, you want to provide tons of resources with high perceived value that you can deliver electronically, making the only cost to you your time. Providing people with these great free offers usually automatically assures that you will get word of mouth advertising. Remember that content is king, and that especially goes for viral marketing.

A third sure-fire technique to bringing free viral traffic to your websites is by creating viral videos. I admit that this is not an easy task to accomplish, but if you put in some effort, then it can all be worth it. Here are a few tips: First, make sure that after you have creating your "amazing video" that you include within that video a compelling offer for people to visit your website and learn more. Second, ask people to share your video with friends and ask them to comment and rank your video. If you convince people that your video is worth sharing, and then ask them to share it, then they likely will. Third, upload your viral video to multiple video sharing sites for maximum exposure. You see, your video make go viral on a site like Mega Video before it goes viral on YouTube, so you'll want to upload and promote your video on as many sites as possible for maximum effectiveness.

I would like to point out that there is a common theme amongst all three of these viral marketing techniques, and that is the theme of creating great content and then giving it to people for free. When viral marketing has worked the best, it has always been because of people providing very informative or entertaining information for free. The more value you can provide to people for free, the more word of mouth marketing you will receive. Then you will be rewarded with tons of free website traffic while others may struggle to break even with a similar business.

viral Marketing Success Formula. 9 Winner Tactics for Free Viral Advertising

When used properly, viral marketing or viral advertising is by far the best way to promote your website, products and services on the Internet.

Viral advertising implies a virus-like fast transfer of a marketing message on the web, as a consequence of using free viral marketing tools such as Youtube, Flickr or Facebook, built to be viral.

Successful viral marketing results in this snowballfactor

    - An exponential increase in users of the free viral marketing product
    - free exponential increase in website traffic which in turn helps to
    - improve the search engine rankings which in turn leads to
    - more free web traffic and so on...

The degree of success, depends on the extent to which the 9 success criterias are followed.

9 Viral Marketing Success Criterias

As many and ideally all of the following tactics should be used:

1. Make an irresistible free offer

You need to provide a free viral marketing product or service since "free" is the biggest customer magnet. "Free" even attracts people who otherwise wouldn't be interested.

2. Build a viral marketing product - don't just try to market a product virally

A product is not necessarily viral if it contains a few features that lend viral characteristics to it. Just having a "Recommend to a friend" option on one of your web pages doesn't make your website viral. For the free viral marketing products to be considered truly viral, more than 1 new user must result from each user recommending it.

3. Target alpha users

The viral advertising message ought to target individuals with a high social networking potential, the so called influencers, ideal for spreading it. With regards to the consumer market, influencers are well connected, have impact, have active minds and are trendsetters.

So what causes an influencer to desire passing on a viral message? Answers include the need to be loved (or fear of rejection) and the need to be successful (fear of failure).

For example consider which messages and free products would result in respect and appreciation of the sender when received. Important and effective online influentials take a serious approach and want to pass on only useful viral marketing messages, not silly videos, jokes or commercials without purpose nor marketing results.

They want to be perceived responsible by the recipients; their network. The product they recommend ought to suit the needs of the users optimally. Hard sales talk is not the way.

4. Be creative and ahead of market trends

Study your market and its trends and learn to think ahead in order to provide what turns people on, in exactly the right moment and right way. Do you have...

    - the capacity and know-how to come up with an innovative product?
    - expert knowledge to share?
    - ideas and a network of associates to inspire and motivate you?
    - the right web business tools and resources?

5. Easy transfer is prerequisite

The viral marketing message should be short and easily transferred via one or several of the following digital medias:

    - email
    - website
    - instant messaging
    - graphics
    - software download
    - social medias meaning social media websites, under here social network sites, online communities, blogs, wikis etc. Examples include Facebook, twitter and youtube, that facilitate the exchange of viral messages by automating the distribution process.

The interaction between internet users is highly facilitated by using Web 2.0, a design standard, making viral marketing possible. Examples of inheritable viral Web 2.0 sites are MySpace, Facebook, and Flickr. These sites are as well free viral marketing products to the user as they are viral advertising tools to both the companies and the users.

6. Use Existing Social Networks

The distribution of the viral message takes place within established social networks of the individuals who receive it: Around 10 persons within their closest circle and as many as thousands within their broader network, depending on the person's status and job.

Affiliate programs often inspire the affiliates to target their network. Once an online influential with an extensive network is reached, a snowball effect initiates, provided that the viral product is useful and of high quality and the marketing message catchy. Social network websites are important viral marketing tools.

7. Use other's resources

Spread your viral marketing message by placing articles on other websites (the media) thereby reaching a much larger group of people than had you relied solely on your own web site. By getting your message spread as news, you target many subscribers that might decide to visit your home page or even place your article on their website.

An example of effective viral marketing is the placement of Youtube videos on different websites from where interested visitors can copy the video to their own site.

8. Allow for Big Scale Traffic

It is imperative that the resources for handling all the traffic need to be quickly up scalable to avoid overload and break down of the replication cycle of the viral marketing campaign.

In order to handle the expected high volume of users, the process needs to be completely automated. For example customers are emailed using sequential autoresponders.

9. Measure and optimize the parameters of viral marketing

To achieve true Viral Marketing Success, monitor the results expressed by certain parameters then test and optimize them. Examples of parameters include

    - sources of traffic
    - % registered users
    - % users who send out invites
    - number of invites sent out per user
    - % of invites received

What is viral website traffic?

When we think of a virus we usually think of a highly infectious disease that strikes a few people in any particular area and then spreads extremely quickly. It is something that is passed on not only by the originator of the disease but also by all the others that catch it.

The same is true of a computer virus. A virus program makes copies of itself so the originator only has to send out one of these nasty programs and soon there is millions of them around the internet. Out of these negative examples can grow something extremely positive and beneficial.

Imagine that you can create something that directs traffic to your website and that this "something" is then picked up and copied and then sent around to hundreds of other people who also make copies of it. Pretty soon you have thousands of copies of these things all sending traffic to your website. That is what viral website traffic is all about.

Why will anyone help you pass on your traffic builder?
The reason for helping your traffic to go viral is not due to any sudden desire to be kind towards you. Sorry if that is upsetting, but it is based on the fact that many webmasters have a need for fresh content. This need is met by writers allowing their work to be used as content on other websites.

The thing that you create is content. The content can be in the form of an article, like this one, or it can be a blog post or it can be a forum post. As you know there are thousands upon thousands of forums all over the internet. In addition there are simply millions of blogs, again on practically every subject that you can think of. Within your content and especially at the end, you will be placing a link to your website. This is the link that will drive traffic to your site.

The posts that you make to many forums (and your link with them) will often go viral because they get sent off in the forums' RSS feeds. These feeds are then picked up and placed automatically on hundreds on blogs and other compilation websites. The same is true with many thousands of blogs.

Most forums and blogs have strict rules with regard to pushing your viral marketing in their threads. As a business owner you don't want to be banned from these forums, so you must take caution and follow the rules set by the moderators.

Safe Posting on Blogs and Forums

Any forum is meeting place for all sorts of different folks that have one thing in common, they all enjoy the subject that the forum is focused on. As a result of this, many of the readers and contributors to the forum will be interested in purchasing information about the topic. However, most will be there to exchange free advice and encouragement and may well frown on activities that attempt to commercialize the site.

You can use these forums as a great place to learn and to share your knowledge. When you have something to sell, the best place to do so is in your signature file. Moderators of forums will not be happy with you if you are planning to run a viral campaign with regard to your websites on their threads.

You want avoid getting banned in these forums since they will form an important part of your business strategy.

As an internet marketer, you should post only where it is allowed. There are sometimes specific areas for trading services or goods and it is in threads that you can push your products.

How to Create Free Viral Traffic

To find success with your internet marketing business there is one thing that you absolutely must have – traffic, as much as possible.

There are many ways to get traffic to your web site or affiliate program. One of the best ways to generate traffic (and highly targeted traffic at that) is also extremely cost effective. In fact, after a single one-off cost for appropriate software, the cost to you is practically zero.

I have always been drawn towards achieving any given target at as low a cost as possible provided I get the results I am seeking. To me it doesn’t make sense to pay $100 for a product if I can get it for a fraction of that. I have built my own internet marketing business primarily using free or low cost traffic generation methods.

This article will show you how to generate a constant and increasing flow of traffic to your web site or affiliate program without spending a fortune.

Viral Traffic

There are many thousands of surfers searching for free stuff online: Google is currently returning 2.9 million results for the search term “free e-books”, and 3.1 million results for “free reports”, so you can see that there is massive demand.

To take advantage of this demand, create your own free report. The creation and distribution of your free report will build your traffic slowly at first and gradually build up momentum, but what I'm talking about here is free traffic here, so you have nothing to lose. To create your report, follow these simple steps:

Choose a “hot” topic

Visit any online marketing forum and you’ll quickly see what people are looking for in your niche – often information (how to do this, that etc.).

Write your report on what’s in demand to give your report the widest possible audience. If you’re really stuck or suffering from “writer’s block” you may well have reports or e-books that you have downloaded gathering dust on your hard disk and you can use these for inspiration. Don’t copy other writer’s work – this can get you into a lot of trouble with copyright. Instead, rewrite them in your own words.

Within your free report, include hyperlinks back to your website (typically on the title page and at the end of the report) and/or affiliate links or products (within the text of the report, and ideally at the end of the report (links to related products or resources for example).

Give your report a title to attract interest

To ensure that your report gets noticed don’t use a title like “Marketing Basics”. A much better title would be something like “Secrets of 200% More Traffic – How To Instantly Get Twice As Much Traffic For Your Site”.

Compile your report into pdf format

The most widely used format for document distribution on the internet is pdf's and will give your report the widest possible audience. There are many programs available that will create a pdf from a word processor file, and these days you should be able to get a good one for less than $20.

Promote your report

Obviously, the first place you want to advertise your report is on your own web site (if you have one).

However, to get the best results (viral traffic), summarize your report into an article and submit the article to one or more of the free article directories. In the article’s resource box you would include something like “Like this article? Get the FULL - free - report from [yoursite] by clicking here” (hyperlink to your report’s download page).

Result – free viral, targeted traffic!

    - Your article stays on the article directory producing more and more traffic back to your site and your report.

    - As article directories are free resources your article may well be picked up by others and spread around the internet, getting even more exposure – true “viral” traffic that operates automatically for you.

    - Search engines will also identify the link back to your web site which will increase your site’s ranking.

Apply these tips and watch as your hit counts grow.

[{]  What to Know About Free Viral Marketing

Viral marketing
is an extremely effective form of marketing which has gained a great deal of popularity thanks in large part to the internet. Like nearly any form of marketing certain types of viral marketing can cost a great deal of money. On the other hand free viral marketing can lead to great returns without any money out of pocket.

The most successful viral marketing campaigns are almost never free. Some great examples of these costly viral marketing methods simply visit most viral you-tube videos. These get a lot of exposure and in many cases a lot of clicks for the companies that funded their production.

Unfortunately, for most small businesses these viral you-tube videos are just too costly to produce. One of the great things about viral marketing is that free viral marketing is a true option for those who are able and willing to invest a little more time into making it happen.

The most effective and popular form of free viral marketing is the blog. The concept of a blog is a somewhat new one online but the basis of it has been around for a very long time. A blog works a lot like an online journal which you share with others.

The beauty of a blog is that you can put almost anything in it that you wish. From the free viral marketing standpoint this can be a gold mine. Well written articles can garnish a lot of attention. This attention can spread around quite rapidly. The key to using a blog as an effective form of viral marketing is to contain a lot of useful content and information which others will not only want to read but want to share.

Email marketing is another very effective form of free viral marketing. Creating a mailing list is as simple as getting people to sign up for your newsletter. This can be done quite well by giving something away. The key to turning your newsletter into a form of viral advertising is to write a newsletter which people will want to read but one which will encourage them to visit your site for more details.

Make it entertaining, concise and easy to read. Make sure the title is catchy so when people get the email in their inbox they are encouraged to open and read it.

Forum posting is a very unique form of free viral marketing. It can achieve two things for a company or person. The first and most important thing is that you can usually include a link to your website in your signature. This signature will be included in every single posting you make.

Free viral marketing truly is an excellent option for companies or individuals who just don't have the money to drop down on an expensive marketing video or program. The key is to learn how to get your name out there the right way.[{]

The Secret Behind 107,037 Free Targeted Website Visitors?

I've generated more than 107,037 free targeted website visitors
. What was my secret and how did I do it? Well, it's not hard. I have more websites that generate lots more. But in this short article I wanted to share some of the ways I go about
receiving this kind of traffic without paying for it.

The first thing you have to understand is that you need to be somebody of value or potential value of your visitor. They will not visit your website unless you have something that they want. So if your site sucks, forget getting any visitors!

So what I'm saying is "content rules" basically. Just keep adding more valuable content to your website and you'll experience a flood of visitors automatically, because of the tell a friend viral factor. Some of my sites only get 1,500 or so visitors per month, so it's not a lot. I've got bigger sites that generate a lot more...

The way I go about promoting the site is by adding valuable content on leverage points online. These can be sites like an article directory where I place a detailed article, or it could be a video sharing site. Either way, I post content that appeals to the target audience and put a little Twist on it. That way it gets attention.

Like an idea could be to put something like "How to make money online with a shovel"... It's weird and people might click out of curiosity, of course then you must lead them in the right direction as well.

Remember that your target audience is already out there looking for you, or have an interest in what you are sharing. So it's important to do some keyword research to get a grasp of what volume your audience might be. The higher the better, but only to a certain degree! You don't want too much competition, although competition is good.

Try to find keywords that are a little bit more "long-tail" so to speak, such as "puppy training books" instead of "dog training". That is a good example of a keyword that has a lot fewer searches, but would be easier to rank and target in search engines or using your content.

Create some content and leverage other sites, articles, video, web 2.0 and social media are great solutions. Even if you know what these are and have tried them, it's obvious that many fail in using these strategies correctly.

Free Viral Advertising

Now that you have built that great website, joined the perfect affiliate program, created the most sort after product, how do you get others to know about it?

In one word, advertising! In a couple of words, lots of advertising.

Well, let's begin by reviewing some of the things we know about advertising before talking about viral advertising. What actually is advertising? According to one definition by, It is "the act or practice of calling public attention to one's product, service, need, etc., esp. by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc.." Notice how it says, "by paid announcements." But does it have to be paid always? Not when we introduce the viral element of advertising. Remember, we want advertising for free!

There are quite a few things you can do to get others to know about your site or business or product using viral advertising .

Before going viral, lets talk about some of the things you can do with your advertising generally to start gaining some traction. You could start by telling your friends about your service or product, and have your friends tell their friends and so on. That is advertising by Word of mouth and there is a kind of viral element to that. If you have a website, you could make your site in such a way that the search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and the rest of them would love it. You could put a lot of unique content on your site, use meta tags to do on page optimization and build related links to boost your relevance and ranking with the search engines. This is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO). And because the search engines love your site, they will bring exposure as a kind of reward for your efforts.

You could immediately go to any of the search engines such as Google, or Yahoo, or Miva and set up an advertising campaign, where you pay only when searchers click on your ad. This is called Pay Per Click or PPC advertising. You could even do the more recent variation, a kind of pay per incident called Pay Per Play, where you pay when searcher listen to your ad.

There are also traffic exchanges and article directory sites that you can use to bring traffic and attention to your site or product. The later is called Article Marketing and is a very solid and profitable form of adverting. This is simply the art of crafting unique articles about your brand, or service or product and creating a web page for the article on your site and then submitting a variation of the article to the article directories with a link back to your website. If your article is great, other webmaster pick it up and republish it on their sites with your back link, bringing authority and traffic to your site.

But these all cost time and or money. No advertising is really free or is it? Well, No and Yes! No because it will cost you time or money or both time and money to get your advertising momentum going. And yes, because once you get your momentum going, you can add a tweak to your advertising that can really make your ads free. That is the viral part of advertising.

What are the quickest and simplest ways to get your advertising momentum going?

Some of the simplest, easiest and most cost-effective ways to get your momentum going is by running solo, sponsored or classified ads.

Solo Ads: Solo ads are ads sent to an email list or a list of ezine or newsletter readers with no other ads on it. Solo ads when sent to a target audience are very effective because there are no competing offers on the page. The reader is presented with your ad and your ad alone. That is why they are called solo ads.

Classified Ads: When placed at the right place and worded carefully, classified ads are also pretty effective. Because there are other competing ads, they are not as effective as a solo ad. By merely tweaking your headline, text format and duration of ad placement, you can improve the performance of your classified ad.

Sponsored Ads: In-between solo ads and classified ads are sponsored ads. Sponsored ads are placed at the beginning, middle or end of ezine or newsletter articles. By reason of their placement and size, they tend to perform better than classified ads but not as well as solo ads.

Pay Per Click Campaigns are also quick and effective, but they can be expensive if you don't know what you are doing. You could loose your shirt with runaway campaigns.

Adding a viral twist to your advertising

There a few ways you can add a viral advertising spin to your advertising campaign. But what actually is viral advertising? It is simply a way of bringing attention to your products, services, brand or campaign by leveraging the help and effort of others.

Article Writing, as mentioned earlier is one way to bring a viral effect to your traffic. As you gain prominence in your niche, and other webmasters pick up your articles for publication, there is an element of viral-ness that kicks in and brings you additional exposure and traffic at no extra effort or cost.

Once you begin to bring some traffic to your site or product, you can use other tools, such as tell a friend form on your site, with incentives to leverage off of the help of your visitors. Hotmail did it and exploded their subscription base. Recently, we have witnessed the explosion of social sites such as MySpace, Facebook and several others going from obscurity to notoriety in no time. But these are just social sites and they can provide you leverage if you just want to promote your face.

But there are also sites that provide a platform for you to put a viral spin to your business for free. A quick search on Google will turn out a truck load of such sites. But how many of them actually produce the results they claim can only be known from actually participating. Without doubt, the way to go with your advertising is to go viral. Why? Because viral advertising has a compounding effect, it is free, and it is self-sustaining. You can see author resource area for more information.

  What is Viral Marketing?

Recently you hear a lot about viral marketing, but how well is it understood? First of all I'm assuming it is not some kind of viral infection that we all seem to want to catch; please let me be infected with thousands of hits to my website. It's probably not like a computer virus that the folks at Symantec want to eradicate, but oddly viral marketing has attributes of both an infection and a computer virus. The definition of viral according to the American Heritage Dictionary is " Of, relating to, or caused by a virus". Well, maybe we internet marketing folks are taking liberties when it comes to defining our marketing methodologies, but it wouldn't sound nearly as cool if I called viral marketing something like "multiple methods of complementary marketing". So I'm willing to live with the term "Viral Marketing" if you are.

If we can agree that viral marketing like an infection or a computer virus can get stronger, thus expanding over time then the rest of this article will focus on marketing techniques that have those attributes. The reason most of got into this type of business is that we believed that getting paid by the hour or a salary was pretty limiting, and that our internet business had the potential to grow virally. Now there are a lot of internet money making opportunities out there that I would not consider to be viral marketing including things like paid to take surveys, paid to read, paid to click, and whatever other methods where you get paid directly for the time you put into it. Now your back to working for someone else and all the limitations associated with getting paid by the hour.

So what types of business opportunities or marketing techniques qualify as truly viral. Let's start with different types of businesses:

Multi Level Marketing (MLM) companies - companies like Shaklee, Amway, Usana, and the list goes on and on. They are viral in that everyone you recruit has the ability to recruit many people under them, and you share in the profits of the whole team. Great concept, but doesn't always pan out if your downline isn't very active.

Affiliate Business Opportunities - Now probably everyone will disagree with me, but many of the affiliate business opportunities share the same characteristics of an MLM. Usually you profit from multiple levels of downlines, those that you refer and their own referrals. There are literally thousands of affiliate business opportunities out there like the Free Store Club, DealDotCom, or MyPowerMall, just to name a few.

Well it doesn't do much good to have a viral business without some kind of viral marketing tools that also expand their capacity to generate traffic and ultimately income over time. The rest of this article will focus on my favorite viral marketing tools. Here are some that I use:

List builders - We are talking about email marketing here, where the intent is to build your list of people that you can solicit or advertise too. A couple that I use include YourLuckyList and ListJoe; these two are slightly different, but the idea is that your recruiting efforts are focused on building a list of people that you can email on a periodic basis. Of course you can build your own list without one of these programs. As your list grows you are reaching out to an ever expanding audience, and some of these programs offer multiple levels of referrals that make them really viral.

Writing Articles - One of the great things about writing articles is that they have a long half life, meaning they can help you get traffic to your website for years, and they get picked up by the search engines creating back links to your website, improving your search engine rankings. It is clear that writing articles is a true viral marketing method and it is free.

Downline Builders - I wrote an article on downline builders recently because they are a truly viral marketing technique because they can expand your presence exponentially. As people sign-up for the downline builder they will often become part of your downline. Advertise one good downline builder
and you have the potential to get hundreds of referrals in multiple programs. This is much more efficient that promoting each marketing tool on an individual basis. My primary downline builder is Vital Viral and I have referrals 4 levels deep. So instead of promoting traffic exchanges, list builders, and other marketing tools with separate advertisements, consider using a downline builder for its viral marketing characteristics.

Without getting into a lot of detail I want to mention a few other marketing tools that have those viral characteristics that have been discussed:

- Portals like LinkScout
- Website Directories
- Web Forums
- Traffic Exchanges
- Viral sites like Free Viral
- Networking groups like LinkReferral or Reality Networkers

In my opinion for you to experience the real benefits of viral marketing you need to begin utilizing multiple marketing channels, and not get caught up in programs that focus on getting paid by the hour, but instead focus on those programs that can expand as you refer others. Ultimately this results in more traffic, better search engine placement because your site is referenced many times, and ultimately more cash in your pocket.

How To Use Free Viral Marketing Methods To Build Your Website Traffic

Viral marketing is one of the most effective ways of driving traffic to your website with little effort on your part. With viral marketing, you can send your marketing message to selected recipients who then pass on that message to others. Viral marketing is easy and affordable, so anyone can do it.

If you have high quality products, your marketing message will be passed on to many people. Internet marketers want to pass on high quality products or services to their own lists. So the more appealing your products are, the quicker your marketing message will get spread all over the internet, and this will generate huge volumes of traffic to your website.

You can carry out your viral marketing campaign by creating e-books, reports or articles and distribute them to targeted recipients, giving them for free.  Any internet marketer can do this; since it simply involves creating the product, pass it on and let other people pass it on further for you.

Key examples of how you can do viral marketing are as follows:

 -Offer high quality products that spread your marketing message. Write well-researched reports and e-books on your niche and add your URL on these reports. Many people like getting free reports and e-books. These e-books will provide very powerful information on your topic, and people who read them will visit your website. Further distribution of your reports and e-book will result in more traffic to your website as well as increased awareness of your business or brand.

 -Setting up an affiliate program that encourages links to your products can also be helpful. If you can afford it, provide attractive financial incentive for other sites to pass on your marketing message. You can also install a ‘Recommend it" referral system on your website so that other internet marketers will pass on your website address to their lists. By having your own affiliates promoting your website, you drive a lot of traffic to your website.

 -Use traffic exchange programs where you exchange website links with other internet marketers. When you add your website link to another site, some people may be interested in it, and they may bookmark it or pass it on to other people who may be interested in your niche.

 -You can also offer a free service or product on your web site that spreads your message to an increasing number of people who hear about it. Send out news releases concerning the free service or product available on your site. This in turn will generate huge volumes of traffic to your website.

 -Write good quality articles and encourage other webmasters to post them for free as content on their sites. If you're an expert in a niche, write an article on that niche and give it away for free to complementary sites to post on their site as free content, so long as the article contains links to your site. Write high quality articles and distribute them online for free with reprinting rights. More directories, newsletters and e-zines will publish your article with your resource box and URL. With little effort, your URL will be distributed all over the internet, and this will lead to a huge flow of traffic to your website.

Use the power of viral marketing to spread your marketing message all over the internet and drive high volumes of traffic to your website.

Hands-Free Viral Traffic

Receiving traffic to your website through viral methods is one of the best ways for you to open up the floodgates and to see a lot of results for your efforts. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of these viral marketing efforts can be put on autopilot and do not require any additional work from you, once they get their start. Here are a few different ways that we have seen success with viral marketing, and they can be applied to any business  that is on the Internet.

One of the best ways of viral marketing is to use online videos. Video marketing has really come of age, but very few niches are now using it in order to drive traffic to their websites. Believe it or not, the second largest search engine on the Internet is on YouTube, a video website. If you put videos on this website and market them properly, you're going to see a lot of traffic as a result. There are a few things, however, need to be kept in mind in order for this to work properly.

First of all, you need to make sure that the video is going to be worthy of being passed along. Not just any video is going to work, as many of them are not even going to be watched once the viewer realizes that there is no substance to it. It doesn't matter if you make them funny, serious or drastic, just make sure that they are targeted properly and that they are well done. You also need to make sure that your URL is easily identified, and you would be surprised how many people are going to follow over to your website.

E-books can start a viral marketing storm as well. The real key to doing this is to make sure that the information is beneficial and that it is going to be worthy of being passed along. Of course, you would also want to make sure that it was targeted to whatever niche you're working in as that will help you to receive targeted traffic in return. You can either have them come to your website in order to pick up the e-book, perhaps even in exchange for an email or you can put your links inside the e-book and watch the people follow them to your website. Just make sure that it is worthy of being passed along, and people will send it readily.

There are two good things about viral marketing in this way that can generate a lot of traffic. First of all, if you fail on one attempt, it is just a matter of trying again. Eventually, you're going to come upon a winning combination and the traffic that you receive is going to be phenomenal. Secondly, the traffic is going to be hands-free and you're not going to need to do anything, outside of perhaps a little initial promotion in order to get the traffic rolling. When done properly, it can really add a lot of traffic to your bottom line.

The Most Two Important Elements of a Viral Marketing Promotion

Viral marketing is loved and used on the Internet because it works. If you release a viral product on a regular basis such as a free software, a PDF report, an eBook, audio or a video, your visitors will always come back to your site looking to find what you have to offer each month. They will spread the word to their friends about it as well. Also, if you can give something for free that helps other webmasters generate traffic on their site as well, you will be even more appreciated.

Viral marketing means creativity and quality. The more creative and original you can be the better your traffic will increase. If visitors likes what they see, they will spread the information to their friends and family. This means that you are able to double your traffic only if your free product is quality based and will become very popular.

Viral marketing has become a very popular form of advertising and marketing because it had a relatively low cost. You can also personalize it with your website address and company logo.

A lot of companies will also offer rebates and discounts with their products to keep visitors coming back to their website to purchase products and see what the next freebie is.

The most important thing about viral marketing is that you will attract repeating visitors that are disposed to buy something. It means that your sales have the potential to explode.

1. Link Exchanges

All search engines love to see links incoming and outgoing. If you can exchange links with sites that get a lot of traffic, you will receive a lot of traffic in return as well and a decent page rank. This is a great free way to gain more traffic, which you wouldn't gained otherwise.

2. "Tell-A-Friend" Script

Have you ever noticed the little gadget that says "send to a friend" during reading an online news on CNN? It is a similar tool that people very rarely use.

Anyway, if you do choose to use it you will find that it is a good way to increase traffic.

This is an incredibly easy way to increase the traffic to your website, especially if your content is good quality. It is a simple script that you can put in the HTML code of your site. It is installed in pages where the information exists so that a visitor can send it to their friends or family.

The visitor fills-in their friend's name, email address and sends the information to the intended person like an email attachment. The email is not perceived as spam because is sent by this person's friend.

The script eliminates the chances of the email being blocked by the spam filters because the information is input by the sender. Attached in the email, the recipient receives the information and a short description of the website where the media is from. The more people use it, the more it will spread to friends and families.

The script is very simple and does not need complicated programming. You can simply copy and paste the script in the html code of your pages. You can simply find the script by searching for it on Google.

This is a free viral marketing campaign that can be very useful. Be sure to place the script in places on your site that will encourage people to use it very often.

Viral Marketing Strategies To Sky-Rocket Your Traffic And Profits

Viral marketing strategies are marketing techniques which once implemented take on a life of their own, they continually expand their reach across cyberspace drawing more customers and their cash into your net. They can spread like wildfire from place to place, luring, enticing and pre-selling prospective customers before they even reach your site.

Viral marketing strategies

are so powerful that whole ebooks and courses have been written on how to implement and use such techniques to squeeze the most out of them. As once set up correctly you may never need to pay for advertising again...

So what types of techniques work?

Well as I said there have been book written on the subject, so here's a quick run down of a few techniques which I've used to help create steady streams of traffic to my websites.

Writing and submitting articles such as this is a great technique for getting more links back to your site and for drawing in more visitors, as people publish them in ezines, on their blogs and websites and you'll find them popping up all over the place. If you go to Google and type in "How to profit from your home business blog" you'll find about 9,290 listings of that article which I wrote a while's also the most popular download at with over 4200 downloads last time I checked. So if you're not regularly writing and submitting articles, why not?

Power tip: Make your article viral, by adding at the end something like this to encourage distribution:

"(Feel free to use this article online and in your email newsletters as long as you leave it intact and do not alter it in anyway. The by-line and biography must remain in the article.)"

Putting together and distributing viral ebooks is another strategy I've used with good results. The key is to make them 'brandible' so that consumers can brand the eBook with their own affiliate links, this gives them an incentive to pass them on and on.

A few places you can give these away are, to your customers, website visitors or in article/forum signatures. Have a look at the link below for an awesome free viral eBook which is like nothing you'll have ever seen:

These are two strategies you can implement straight away. Other viral marketing techniques you could use are:

-Creating and distribution podcasts on your niche; turn your articles in to podcasts and you'll add a new stream of visitors to your site, don't forget to submit them to podcast directories.

-Create viral videos and submit them to Google video, ifilm and other video related websites. Done properly, these are a very effective strategy.

-Add refer-a-friend scripts to your site, these are freely available just do an internet search, I've used "Spread The Word" which is a good free script. If you give away an incentive for referring friends (e.g. viral eBook) you can really enhance the effect of this strategy.

There are many more viral marketing techniques that you could use, focus on one at a time and keep working until you get the results you want. Decide now to take action and take your business to the next level.

Viral Marketing Campaign Solutions For Your Online Business

If you\'re trying to earn money on the Internet, there\'s one thing you can never have enough of, and that\'s good traffic.

So if you\'re not getting the leads and traffic you want to, don\'t beat yourself up too much over it. If someone has told you that generating great prospects is easy, they were probably trying to sell you their product about how to do it.

Over the last two years I've learned a lot about generating prospects for home businesses and one of those things is that when it comes to marketing an opportunity that is largely \"online-based\", you should focus your advertising online too -- for several reasons.

 -There are millions of prospects

 - They are much easier to target than offline prospects

 - You can leverage technology

 - You can leverage the power of other people\'s networks

 - You can educate, inform and even close without your involvement

Well, first off -- you need to be able to reach those millions of people who are interested in a home business. You need to leverage technology, networks and automation to do way more work than you could ever do yourself -- and for less money.

And the answer to that, simply... is having a system of prospecting that works.

Viral marketing techniques is the solution.

A little over a month ago, a friend and I were preparing to launch a new website and needed beta testers. We had seen some new technology (software) that would allow us to tap into VAST numbers of other people\'s email contacts by providing them an incentive to tell the people they know about what we were doing.

We setup a simple 3-page website that employed a process we conceived over a 5 minute phone call. The website was so vague that we didn\'t really expect many people to go through the process.

Honestly, it was more of a test than anything else...

Since we were looking for only a handful of beta-testers, it didn\'t really NEED to work all that well. But surprise! Do you know what happened?

Over 224,900 Friends Told, Thousands of Website Visitors and Thousands of Opt-In Prospects, in Just a Few Weeks

Sure, you can buy 10,000 \"hits\" from a traffic exchange, but it\'s not going to deliver the same kind of results.

There are many different sources and strategies for a successful viral marketing campaign. Do your research and find a viral marketing strategy that works and you will get results that will blow your mind.

How To Use VIRAL Traffic Exchanges To Create Your Own AUTO-PILOT Lead Generation System

Lead Generation is probably ONE of the most important and most critical parts of ANY business, whether its Online or Offline, because these leads are what make up the foundation of your business and what will keep you in business for years to come.

The more leads you are able to generate through your online marketing efforts, the more people(or customers) you have to send your 'Sales Offers' to on whatever schedule you choose.

Online Marketers like call this practice... "Opt-In List Building".

I'm sure you've probably heard the catch phrase, "The Money Is In The List", at least once or twice while surfing the net.

Well, there right. And the BIGGER you build it, the better.

Now, your probably wondering what the heck do VIRAL Traffic Exchanges have to do with Lead Generation.

The answer is quite simple actually.

VIRAL Traffic Exchanges are website traffic producers that send your website targeted traffic when you surf using their program, and we all know that in order to generate leads and build an Opt-In List of any size, we need Targeted Traffic.

Those are the undisputed Facts!

And the real cool thing about VIRAL Traffic Exchanges is the more people you refer through your Personal Referral Link that you get when you sign up, the more traffic you'll receive without ever having to lift a finger because the people you referred are the ones who are going to generate all that FREE targeted traffic for you when they surf using the VIRAL Traffic Exchange they signed up under you for.

The BIGGER the downline you build, the more Targeted website traffic you'll receive.

Are you with me?

Of course, you do have the option to purchase credits if you like, but why, when all you really have to do is start referring others through your personal Referral Link and have them earn the credits for you.

But, that's really up to you.

Now, with that said, this is where it gets exciting because if you have your Name Squeeze Pages(if you don't know what a Name Squeeze Page is I'll explain in a moment) plugged in to your favorite VIRAL Traffic Exchange under the category that targets your market and you managed to build your downline to where your referrals are generating you a decent amount of credits(traffic) or you just purchased some credits to get started, all you have to do is sit back and watch your Lead Generation System or Opt-In List grow on its own.

As far as your Opt-In Lists growth, it really depends on how much traffic your generating, and most importantly, on how well your Name Squeeze Page converts those visitors into Leads, which is where you must TEST and TWEAK.

My recommendation is to put up TWO completely different Name Squeeze Pages and see which one converts the BEST, then use that one for all other promotions.

Now for those of you who are not quit sure what a Name Squeeze Page is, here's a quick definition:

Its simply a single webpage with a Special Offer like, for example: a Free Report, eBook, eCourse or Newsletter; that has an Opt-In form where your potential lead enters their Name and eMail Address.

That's it. Nothing fancy.

Here's an example of one of mine for you to view:

Once they've entered their Name and eMail Address, you now have their permission to send them offers as often as you like given you give them the option to 'Opt-Out' at any given time if they wish not to receive any further mailings from you. VERY Important!

You do not want to be 'Flagged' as a Spammer, and further more, you do not want any legal action taken against you.

By just doing it right the first time, you can go to bed knowing that everything is okay and in order.

Well, there you have it. A simple system that will build your Opt-In List on complete AUTOPILOT by simply using free VIRAL Traffic Exchanges and Name Squeeze Pages so you too can reap the benefits of having your very own Opt-In List that you can market your offers to at Absolutely NO COST, anytime you want.

Viral Marketing Tools

Viral marketing is like any other types of marketing in that you need the tools to get the job done. The thing that sets viral marketing tools apart from most types of marketing tools is that many of them are free. The one's that aren't free are still a lot less expensive than typical marketing tools. Despite the fact that most viral marketing tools are free the potential return can outdo most forms of marketing by enormous quantities.

One of the most important and easiest to use viral marketing tools is blogging software. Despite the fact that blogging software and blogging in general can work so incredibly well to spread your brand most blogging software is entirely free. The only cost that may ever exist with blogs is the cost for a webhost and domain name. This can run as low as one hundred dollars a year. If you don't even want to spend this many free blogging sites exist which can be used to spread your name.

Another one of the most effective viral marketing tools is articles. Like blogs these are written documents which contain some form of information. The beauty of articles is they can be readily submitted to a number of free article sites for free. Well written articles function extremely well as viral marketing tools because people love to share useful information. This holds especially true if the useful information is provided in a clean, concise, and easy to read format.

Forums are one of the many excellent free viral marketing tools available. These can work two ways. Providing a forum on your website which others can use to ask questions and share responses can bring new traffic to your site. Posting forum messages which contain a link to your site in your signature can bring clicks and increase your image as an expert in your field.

Email is one of the most effective viral marketing tools which has ever been used. Email can be used in one of two ways. A signature containing a link to your site can be included in every single email you send out. Creating an email newsletter is also one of the most effect viral marketing tools. The key with this tool is to provide content which people will want to forward to their friends and family and which encourages them to visit your site to learn more.

For those who have the skills necessary to write software games and other forms of software can be extremely good viral marketing tools. There is nothing better in most people's minds than free stuff. In fact many people will download software which they may never even use simply because it's free and at the moment it sounds interesting.

The beauty of this is that not only do people love free software but they love to share free software with their friends. Releasing a free piece of software can gain links back to your site and it also tends to be spread through word of mouth.

Developing free viral marketing tactics is something that can seem like a daunting task but with a guiding hand it can be done quite effectively.

How to Advertise Free

Right now, big companies are constantly asking their advertising agencies
for an advertising idea that goes viral.  What they are really asking for is free advertising.  While nothing in life is really free there are ways to get free advertising or at least dramatically reduce the cost.

There are many techniques you can use to get free advertising.  Which ones you choose may depend on the nature of your business and how free you want your ads to be. Here are some ideas to think about.

General Free Advertising Ideas

Networking is one of the oldest, easiest and most effective ways to advertise.  Look for events and activities that impact your business and plan to be there.  Try and meet as many people as possible and at least give out business cards.  The only cost to you is time and your business cards.

Another inexpensive way to advertise is flyers.  Many organizations will allow flyers to be posted.  Senior citizen centers, schools, libraries etc.  all have places where products and services can be posted.  The only cost to you here is the getting the flyers printed and taking time to distribute them.  Some people even have magnetic signs made that attach to the sides of their car.  If you are frequently on the road, this may be a good way to advertise your company.

There are also sites like and  They give you the opportunity to advertise your business online at no real cost to you even if you don't have a website.

Press Releases are another way to advertise for free.  If you can supply interesting business news and keep it to just the facts you will likely be allowed to run your PR.

Frequently if you are already paying for some advertising then publications may provide you with a certain amount of editorial space.  This usually happens when you already have a significant relationship with that publication. But it can also happen when you are new and they are trying to get your business.  The great thing about this free editorial space is that it looks like a story about your company and it appears that an outside source is providing the material.  So it can look like a powerful endorsement.

Product placement is another way to get free advertising.  If you have a product you can send it to various TV and movie studio prop departments.  Of course you have no control over when or if your product will ever be used.  However, if it does show up you will be thrilled with the free exposure.  Unfortunately, studios have gotten smart about the value of this exposure so now there are people who specifically on product placement.  However, you may get luck and all it costs is the price of sending your product to the studios.

Viral Marketing

Now, let's get back to the subject of free viral advertising.  In a nutshell, viral advertising is creating something so creative that people want to share it with others on their own.  It gets sent around the internet without you having to pay for it. The key here is that the advertising has to be extremely creative.  Increasingly, that means it's probably some sort of video that people just feel like they have to share with everyone.

Since these creative pieces are typically passed from one friend to another they never get tagged as spam.  When you see something from someone you know they odds are very good that you will not only accept it but you will also click on it. In the case of viral marketing you will also pass it on to some of your friends.

When something does go viral there is also usually a lot of free PR that comes along with it.  All of this keeps adding exposure to your company and you website.  The expression that you can't pay for this kind of advertising really applies here.

The cost of viral marketing is really dependent on the cost of the initial creative piece that gets sent around.  Typically things that go viral are not slick, well polished pieces.  There are by nature more like home movies or amateur production pieces.

In all of these free advertising concepts you can see that there are some costs to you either in the form of time or an initial production like business cards, flyers, products etc.   But it's still much less expensive than traditional advertising methods and in some cases it may be more impactful.
