We see things get popular in the marketplace all the time—-blockbuster movies, best selling novels, a sushi restaurant chain, a brand of chocolate desert or, perhaps, even some socially aware idea. Ideas that catch on are always “trending” in different ways.
You would think that a lot of ideas are driven by huge advertising budgets, and granted some are, but often it is word-of-mouth that spreads that idea far and wide. In the new world of social media, word-of-mouth can spread ideas like wild fire which take on a life of their own without any efforts, however, if you want to ensure your idea goes viral, you can’t count on it. With just a little bit of planning, it won’t be “dumb luck” that your very next post could go Viral! This is called Viral Marketing.
In the new social media marketplace, it’s not having a huge advertising budget that gives you that advantage. You might not have the best product or the best idea but, rather, it’s the use of a good marketing and behavioral science that influences people to take up ideas and make them their own. Today, social influence and word-of-mouth are the two driving forces of a viral marketing campaign.
