The ‘myth’ (meaning) of ‘viral.’
Let’s talk about the phenomena of Viral Marketing. Anytime a word ‘viral’ is mentioned, our natural perception always refers it to some kind of contagious virus / bugs that we contract associated with upper / lower respiratory infections.
That’s not what we are talking about here! When it comes to IM (Internet Marketing List Building) the term ‘viral’ represents a ‘utopia’ of some sorts that every savvy internet marketer enjoys!
When an IM List Building effort turns into a viral effects, it produces passive / residual income. This article is designated to provide the ‘how-to’ on the viral marketing.
Hope it sheds some light for those who are in the process of creating that passive / residual stream of income. It’s a bit shorter than my posts on other list building subjects but it contains some helpful tips. Here goes…
This is another powerful tool that can get you more traffic to your squeeze page. The idea is to create a free ebook that has links to your squeeze page in it.
This is how it works:
1. Offer the ebook for free
2. Invite them to pass it along as long as everything remains intact.
3. If people like what they see, they’ll visit your squeeze page.
4. At this point, they will see your sign up box and may sign up for the newsletter.
You create a buzz by getting people to tell their friends about it, who in turn will tell their friends and so on. Think about last time you went to a really good restaurant – what did you do the following day? You told all your friends about it, some of which then visited the restaurant, enjoyed the same experience and then they told all their friends about it too.
The news of your ebook spreads like a virus traveling from one infected person to another. This is precisely how Hotmail and MySpace got started.
If your ebook has worthwhile content, this is a solid way to get people exposed to your information and also the page with your sign-up box. Your list will grow at an exponential rate full of targeted subscribers that didn’t cost you anything to acquire.
My mentor has an excellent source of recommendation when it comes to viral marketing expert. He recommended ‘Tim Broklehurst. Tim is responsible for the success of a site called MyViralSpiral.com.
Tim started MyViralSpiral.com at an underground Internet Marketing seminar. Tim is a very down to Earth kind of guy and has a lot of time to listen to others needs.
Tim’s MVS3 gets the highest recommendation from my mentor. You can build a list of prospects and customers in any niche faster than you ever have before.
You can accumulate an army of affiliates spiraling your upward growth in any niche. This allows you to make your income online, even if you don’t have a product.
Best of all automate your Internet Marketing activities so you can do all this on autopilot. If you’re new to this whole Internet Marketing thing, then MVS will save you hours of time and thousands in expense.
Pass it Along
Another great tactic is to invite your list members to share the newsletter with their friends and family. You can also let them use the articles in your newsletter on their websites and in their newsletters as long as they provide a link to your squeeze page.
If every member passes your newsletter on to at least one person, that means twice as many people are viewing your information, sales pitches, and links.
Hope you get the idea of what Viral Marketing is all about.
