You, the small business owner, can always create viral marketing campaigns but when you design one that does not work, it turns out to be a great waste of time. But if it does go as you planned and profits you then it will be the best time you ever dedicated to doing any one task.
There are 3 ways to do it.
1. The first way is to use viral reports. I can tell you from experience that a viral report is a great way to market anything online, especially when the social media is used to make marketing reports viral. For added success ensure that whatever you have in your report is easily rebranded and that people who download it can easily pass it on. How you can do this to benefit from it is to have an affiliate program for what you are selling.
Once you have designed your report, you can sell it on your website or you can distribute it on eBook directories, on forums, make them squeeze page gifts and even free gifts. This allows you to get your eBook on the market and get the word about it out so that you will get viral traffic.
2. The second way is to use articles. Article marketing is one of the most effective types of marketing that one can do. It is also one of the least expensive ways to market a business. In fact, it can even be free, costing you nothing more than your time.
There are many benefits to article marketing. When articles become viral, your message literally travels everywhere, increasing traffic to your website and increasing newsletter signups.
3. The third way is to use videos. Video marketing is another effective way to create viral traffic. Using video marketing gives you a number of opportunities; you can build rapport, credibility while giving you the needed viral traffic. This can be extremely useful in marketing your business.
You can do a test run with a short tutorial video posted on YouTube. Do your research on YouTube and see the types of videos in your niche are doing great and try to model these, creating similar videos with similar keyword tags.
Any video in your niche with over 100,000 views is a good act to follow. This gives you some advantage as you will be going into a market that is in demand and so you would have gotten rid of the stage of feeling things out to see what works.
