Viral marketing is one of the most effective forms of advertising anywhere. If you don’t know what it is or how to do it, this article will show you how and give you probably the greatest example of viral marketing in the history of this planet.
I can’t believe it when people ask me if viral marketing really works. Do you know what the most successful form of viral marketing in the history or mankind was? Well, I’ll tell you later. For now I’ll just let you think about that for a while and come up with an answer.But the purpose of this article is to give you some solid techniques for viral marketing that work like gangbusters.
The first thing you want to do, whatever niche you’re in, is get your rear end over to a forum for that niche. Start talking about things. Talk about what you do. Help other marketers or other members. Become a presence. Eventually, people are going to start talking about you. When that happens, they’ll start checking out your web site. Most forums do allow web site links in your signature. Make sure that yours is filled in.
The next thing you want to do is put together a brief ebook or report on your topic of interest and just give it away. That’s right, give it away. Go to one of those sites where you can download free ebooks. There are tons of them on the Internet. Just go to Google and do a search for “Free eBook Downloads” and you’ll find them. Upload your ebook or report there. Make sure you have income generating links in the book. Over time, as the downloads of your book increase, you will begin to see some sales, just because you uploaded a book to this site. Upload it to multiple sites and you’ll make more sales.
Okay, I’m now going to tell you what the most successful form of viral marketing was of all time. A few guys got together and decided that they were going to spread the word of this great thing. They were real ambitious. They were determined to spread it everywhere, all over the world. And they were going to do this one person at a time. That’s right. They’d tell one person and that person would hopefully tell somebody else. This all started with about 11 guys. By the time you’ve read this article, the word on this great thing had spread to billions of people. In case you’re wondering, I’m talking about Christianity. But you knew that all along from the very beginning, didn’t you.
Viral marketing…It works.
