Let’s Spread Some Viruses…

November 27th, 2006

Mental ones, not the icky kind (you pervs). Thomas Baekdal has put together a nice list of Seven Tricks for Viral Marketing and illustrates them with some successful viral videos (man attacks bear!) Some of his observations: make people feel something — positive or negative. Do something unexpected (humans love the unpredictable). Standard advertisements will not catch on (believe me, I’ve had some fall very very painfully flat). Never restrict access, and make the content easy to share (should be a no-brainer, since the slightest speedbumps can really slow viral spread, but you’d be surprised at how many campaigns put obstacles in viewers’ paths).

The videos alone are worth the click, and the article has attracted some good comments as well. Via Micropersuasion. For more tips, see the e.politics section on viral marketing.
