Build Ad Agency New Business Virally

Viral marketing campaigns are a great way to generate awareness for your agency and provide opportunities for agency new business.

internetInstead of happenstance, viral marketing is becoming a science. An emerging industry dedicated to understanding what makes marketing viral. GoViral, is just one example of a company that specializes in launching viral campaigns by ”seeding” clips on the web in places where they will be picked up and spread online.

  1. Here is an example of a viral campaign launched by an ad agency (not mine, forwarded to me by a friend in the business). I really like the concept and execution, but they are not getting traction yet. Even, so I thought your readers might find a new business viral example helpful.

  2. Gary,

    Thanks for taking the time to comment and providing an example of a viral campaign launched by an ad agency.

  3. That campaign won’t be getting much traction. An if it somehow does, it won’t be in a positive sense.

    Placing a self-made video on YouTube does not make something viral. If only this season’s flu and cold bugs were as powerful as this “viral.”
