4 Ways To More Effective Viral Marketing

4 Ways To More Effective Viral Marketing

For any businesses that realize a need to provide constant support to prospects, customers or partners, these few ideas should provide the online means for the clients to pass on the businesses’ ideas in an enthusiastic and viral manner.

1. Set up a forum, online discussion board, Facebook fan page/group or LinkedIn group simply because it is such a great participative tool. As discussions blossom, the quality of information will attract more registrants.

Place social bookmarking buttons in each discussion thread to encourage forum users to spread the word. Also place a banner ad at the top of the board.

2. Write an e-book or whitepaper report to give it away. Invite partners to place descriptive ads in the free e-book so they themselves can give it away to their web visitors or list subscribers. The viral effect will be immense!

3. If the staff or writers can’t find the time or the creativity to write from scratch, they can easily find info-products on the Internet that sell a license allowing them to distribute the product free of charge to other people. Look for those products that provide “branding” or “white label” rights. These rights allow you to include your own name, website, and contact information in the editable portion of the product (whether it’s an e-book or software). Of crucial note, it is important to rewrite the base content to augment your business’ unique positioning and selling point so that the e-book looks a little more ‘original’.

4. Write articles that pertain to your product or service. Invite other webmasters to republish your content in their e-books, newsletters, e-books, e-zines, article directories and magazines. Your profile signature at the end of the articles is what gets readers to go to your website to learn more about your business.

Hopefully these 4 ideas can act as catalysts for more creative viral marketing strategies, and I have not begun to go in-depth on video marketing or podcasting! Let’s get started.

How To Transform Your PDFs Into 24/7 Viral Sales Machines

A new viral marketing tool is achieving new breakthroughs with the distribution of PDF reports.

James Grandstaff’s Viral PDF Generator is a web-based PDF rebranding software that makes it super easy for your readers to give away YOUR PDF reports and e-books using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

All the “techie” obstacles have been removed and the site itself even hosts your readers’ rebranded PDFs.

If you’re interested in having an army of people virally spreading your PDFs across the Internet, watch the short video that explains everything you get…

The power of viral reports…

Butterfly ReportsDefinition of Viral Marketing: The extremely powerful and unique ability of the Internet to build self-propagating visitor streams, bringing about exponential growth to a website.

If you’re not using viral marketing techniques in your web businesses then you’re seriously missing the boat.

Think about it. What better way to get the word out about your product, service or website than by having others spread the word for you?

High-quality viral reports are one of the best ways to accomplish this.

Quite simply, all you need to do is supply a report of 10 to 20 pages (or more, if you want) relating to your niche. You simply give your reader very useful, good information that offers real value, or solves a real problem.

This will compel your readers to give away your report.

And of course, your report also contains links back to your site(s) and product(s).

Let me tell you from experience…there is a lot of power in this method. When people give away your viral report on their sites, that’s better than paid advertisement!

As a free member of Butterfly Reports, you get one of these free, viral reports every month that you can give away to your subscribers, e-cover graphic included! You can even brand 25% of the links in the reports.

As a Platinum Member, you multiply this by a factor of 4. You get not one, but four viral reports with cover graphics every month. And you also get to brand 100% of the links with your affiliate links.

Use these reports to:

– Build a list.

– Brand the reports with your ClickBank affiliate Links

– Make money by giving them away.

Latest: You have 2 compelling (I would even say absurd) reasons to get your Butterfly Reports membership if you haven’t done so: CB Accountant and CBSpy. Rob Beckwith, co-create of BR with Mike Filsaime, is giving away both full-fledged product and service under the “Free Bonuses” section inside your account.

CB Accountant is a terrific desktop-based ClickBank tracking program that’s currently sold for $97. CBSpy is a very new ClickBank product research membership site that works similarly to a software called Affiliates Alert, but this is web-based. For a very limited time, CB Accountant is free and you can also get into CBSpy for $0.

This seems like a no-brainer to me. You can find out more by watching an introductory video at Butterfly Reports.

6 Ways To More Effective Viral Marketing

1. Purchase the branding rights to a viral e-book. Allow people to give away your free e-book to their visitors. Then, their visitors will also give it away. This will just continue to spread your ad all over the Internet.

2. If you have the ability to set up a forum or other bulletin board, you really have a great tool. Allow people to use your online discussion board for their own website. Some people don’t have one. Just include your banner ad at the top of the board.

3. Do you have a knack for web design? Create some templates, graphics, etc. and upload them to your site. Then, allow people to give away your free web design graphics, fonts, templates, etc. Just include your ad on them or require people to link directly to your web site. Make sure that you include a link back to your site in the copyright notice and require them to keep your copyright notice intact.

4. Write an e-book. Allow people to place an advertisement in your free e-book if, in exchange, they give away the e-book to their web visitors or e-zine subscribers.

5. Write articles that pertain to your product or service. Allow people to reprint your articles on their website, in their e-zine, newsletter, magazine or e-books. Include your resource box and the option for article reprints at the bottom of each article.

6. You can easily find products on the Internet that will sell you a license allowing you to distribute the product free of charge to other people. Look for those products that provide “branding rights”. That is where you can include your own name, website, and contact information.

Viral Marketing with ViralPDF

If you want other people to help spread your PDF articles, you can entice them with a bait, and that is they can brand the articles with their names and URLs. No doubt ViralPDF is the No.1 choice. Why not brand EXE files? Because the EXE format is not proprietary, some folks won’t like to keep many different types of branding software. There is not even a 2nd choice besides ViralPDF, PLUS, you can reach out to MAC users. This Flash presentation shows just how easy it is to use ViralPDF.

How to get long-term traffic from one-time effort.

I would like to share with you my experience in using viral products to create continuous traffic and subscribers for my online business.

It is actually very simple. I created viral e-books and software, give people distribution rights/resale rights with link to my website/squeeze page inside the products.

I focused on capturing prospects instead of making quick sales. This way I can build my opt-in list and get repeat traffic over and over again.

Here’s real life example of one of my viral products…

Search for “404 Self Improvement Tips” (with quotes) in Google. You will find 14,000 pages promoting this e-book alone (imagine how much free traffic I get from this e-book!)

I also have a piece of software (it’s a very simple application actually) that continue to bring me 3-5 subscribers each and every day for the last THREE years!

Viral e-books/application/software is a formidable promotion method for your online business. You can get continuous traffic and subscribers from just one-time effort.

Viral products also help to establish yourself as an expert and act as a media to introduce people to your online business.

If you want to do this viral marketing campaign successfully, there are some rules you need to know:

Rule number 1: do NOT waste time writing e-book or creating software from scratch. I’m talking about viral products that you can use to promote your ACTUAL online business.

It is faster, better and more profitable if you acquire private label rights to certain e-book or software and distributed them as your own. This way you can free up your time to develop your main online business.

In case of 404 Self Improvement Tips, I acquired private label rights to the e-book, gave it a new title, add my name and website, turn them into PDF and simply sell the products along with master resale rights to my subscribers (for giveaway products you can submit them to sites like free-ebooks.net).

Rule number 2: ALWAYS distribute QUALITY products. Forget about creating crappy e-books and software because they will hurt your business!

High quality and useful viral products will bring favorable effect to your name and business. Your viral products will receive wide publication and be featured in newsletter, e-mail, websites, blogs, etc.

Rule number 3: give people reason to pass your viral products! Since ‘404’ comes with master resale rights and giveaway rights, the e-book spreads like a wildfire! People sell ‘404’ in their own website, eBay, or simply use it as a bonus for their own product. They also give the e-book away as an incentive for people who sign up to their newsletter.

This viral technique is so DUMB…it hurts, man!

Viral Friend Generator

The most exciting product of February AND March has officially launched! Only Mike Filsaime can modify a simple and typical tell-a-friend script into one that perpetually builds your list exponentially, infinitely and on autopilot based on butterfly marketing principles.

Rich Schefren said it brought him 17 subscribers every second (for the rest of us, it’s the other way round, and still not everyone can achieve this kind of opt-in rate).

Google “tell-a-friend script” and you’ll find free downloads. You know how it looks like (check this), but we INSIST you don’t start to mash it in like what this video (backtrack to the root URL and you can watch it) describes. You are not spending your time fruitfully and the effectiveness is just not there.

But don’t worry, Viral Friend Generator is so affordable EVERYONE will soon call themselves bona-fide viral marketers. Then again, price alone is not worth a major consideration to hold you back. A monstrosity of a list can always pay you back so much more than you could ever expect, time and time again.

Well, if you have been previously ‘swayed’ by free versions of VFG clones, we urge you to at least go through a comparison table of all the features and benefits between VFG and other knock-offs. You’ll definitely know which is BETTER.

Frankly, it would be a real shame if you forgo Viral Friend Generator to save that money. It would be much more important to save time when you could install VFG once for use on thousands of site so you don’t have to mess with technical issues again.

Other great benefits include:

* seamless combination with popular autoresponders like AWeber, ProSender, 1Shoppingcart, GetResponse and Auto Response Plus.

* Detection of fake e-mail addresses

* Central operations and stats tracking from a single admin panel

* Affiliate program module

* Lifetime support, 300% guarantee (you still profit!) and many more!

Get VFG and a special “Virology” report + 300% money-back guarantee! Imagine this: a little adjustment to your opt-in process for all your opt-in sites can quadruple your total income while you still maintain the SAME amount of time and energy on your business.

Surely this is your heart’s desire?
