It is possible to actually build your entire business on the viral marketing business model, not that I would actually recommend that you do that, it’s never a good idea to have all of your eggs in the same basket, but all the same, when a viral marketing business model is set up correctly, the results can be extremely impressive.
A good idea is to set up a viral marketing business model within your own online business (or offline business for that matter) so that you can see how effective this method can be and then you can go from there.
So, what can you do as a viral marketing business model, to start with I would take a look at a simple report or ebook. It is important that you carry out the necessary research before you begin, for example, check that the contents and title of the ebook apply to your niche and above all, make sure that the contents of the report or ebook really are of the very highest quality. You really do want to take your time with this because if the product that you are using for your viral marketing business model is not of a high standard, the whole project will be a complete waste of time.
You should also decide from the outset what it is that you want to achieve from this particular viral marketing business model, for example, do you want to use this viral marketing business model to build your brand or would you rather use it as a short term goal to make some money.
To use the viral marketing business model more as an initial income generator, you could embed affiliate links in the content of the report that you are sending out. You will be surprised by how many people will click on the links to make a purchase but again, it depends on the quality of the content, make it the very best that you possibly can and you will find that it will be worth the effort that you put in.
If you decide to go down the branding route, and remember, you can do both if you want, you should use every opportunity to include your brand i.e. website. As the report gets passed around the internet you will find that it will be a common occurrence for people to click on your brand to find out more of what you have to offer.
It goes without saying that your website should be equipped to make the most of this increase in traffic by way of an opt in list to capture their email addresses etc.
So, to sum up this type of viral marketing business model, make sure that the report you are giving out offers something that people in your niche find as interesting as possible and also see that it is extremely easy for people to pass the report on and for the recipients to view it. Don’t insist that the recipients have to jump through hoops to ensure delivery.
