How to Use Viral Marketing for Online Profit Written by Daegan Smith
Continued from page 1
Identify your core group: your core group or “hive” is a group of people who share a common interest and talk to each other about it. The core group can also be called ‘agents’. These are guys who will be responsible for sending your ‘virus’ ahead. If your product/idea/ service doesn’t move this group, it isn’t going to get any further. Ease of use: have you ever received an email with a mile long URL in it, asking to be sent to “15 people for a free gift”? if your answer is ‘yes’ then you know what I am talking about. Make it easy for your agents to tell their friends about your company. if they have to download pages of text or heavy graphics, they are more likely to hit “delete” button and get out of there, fast!Make it persistent: When you have built a sizeable community of converts, keep them happy. It is harder to go out and get new agents than making existing ones work for you. Referrals: A good way of utilizing viral marketing for your site is through referrals. If you are offering content or service, you can put up a “Tell a Friend” button that lets customers recommend products or Web pages via email to friends. Recommend-It and BigNoseBird.com are some of sites that offer these services for free. These services allow you to keep track of those who recommend your site and people they recommend it to.
Once you have started off process all you have to do is sit back and enjoy fruits of your labor. For more information on viral marketing take a look at:
