3 Tips for a Viral Marketing Campaign

Tip #1 Be Bold and Give Real Value

You need to think of ways to make your marketing campaign, product or content stand out. It has to be unique, bold, beautiful, and interesting. But at the same time, it should be aligned with your brand’s image. The last thing you want to have is a boring campaign.

For example, brands like Facebook made a bold move when they allowed people to share their personal details where others can access them. While Dropbox decided to give real value to its customers by giving additional cloud storage space for free. That’s why their brands became a big hit. 

Being bold and offering real value is the best way to:

  • First, stand out and grab the attention of many people.
  • Second, grow virally by showing people what they can get when they share your products with others.

Knowing this, you can see that it’s possible for your marketing campaign to go viral for a product that you give to your clients. When you add a bold message to these promotional items, you can stand out amongst the crowd. And, if you can give them rewards for the distribution of your products the game becomes a whole lot more interesting. That way, you get more people to try your product. Voila, you now hold the cards to giving you more chance of going viral.

Tip #2 Establish Strategic Marketing Partnerships for your Campaign To Help Build Your Reach

Your campaign can have access to a wider and broader audience when you establish strategic marketing partnerships. With this, you’ll be able to reach your target audience and the audience of your partners. This adds more spark to your campaigns and helps you build relationships with other brands, and businesses.

There are many ways you can do this:

  • Source funds to purchase higher quality promotional products for a common target audience.
