How To Use Viral Marketing For Your Home Based Internet Business
by Jon Allo
The primary task for a successful Internet home business entrepreneur is to get customer traffic to their website and one way to do this is with a viral marketing campaign. So what exactly does it means for your Internet home business to go ‘viral.’ Well, in the same way that a medical virus can be passed from person to person and continue on and on for a very long time, viral marketing campaigns work in much the same way.
Your Internet Home Business And Video Viral Marketing.
Viral marketing can be a very powerful and inexpensive way to create a great deal of attention for your Internet home business. It is a way of marketing your information or products so that your target audience want to pass on to their friends, colleagues and family. This was known as ‘word of mouth’ marketing in the old days. Your online business idea can go ‘viral’ when people forward your email messages to friends or encourage other people to check out your website.
Video is probably the most popular form of viral marketing, because people get more enthusiastic about videos. But there are other ways you can use viral marketing, such as reports, audio files or images.
YouTube is probably the best example for Internet business opportunities for viral video marketing. If a video is amusing, unconventional or makes you think, it will probably become popular quite quickly. If you upload a popular video that is related to your Internet home business onto your website, it can drive a lot of traffic to your website. But do check that you have permission to use the video first!
Written Viral Marketing For Your Internet Home Business.
If the information contained in a written report is valuable, it can also go viral very quickly. A lot of viral traffic can be generated for your Internet home business if you provide valuable information for free. Viral reports usually have links dotted throughout them, often to your website or to your affiliate products, but they still provide real benefit to the target audience.
If providing an interesting or informative marketing piece is the most important part of viral marketing, getting the piece in front of people who will spread it is the second most important thing. If no one sees the piece, there won’t be anyone to spread it around. You need to figure out a way to get the information that you have created about your Internet home business seen by enough people that it will go viral.
If your information is valuable enough, people will use it and pass it on. If you offer a really high-quality report or video for free, you’ll usually have no trouble getting it to go viral. Post it in a forum as a freebie, email it out to your list and put it on social media websites. But make sure it states clearly that you encourage your readers or viewers to share the download link, or else they may feel like they’re doing something wrong.
Success in business is mostly about marketing, especially online. Great marketing can sell an average product but poor marketing cannot sell a great product.
