Providing high quality content on social networking sites is a great way to engage viewers and position the brand as an authority in a specific niche. In addition, each social media platform offers various solutions for organic and paid advertising. Paid advertisements on Twitter and Facebook, hashtag campaigns and impact marketing are one of the most popular methods of marketing in the social media.

Social marketing is the process of advertising a product or service through various channels of social media. In general, there are two ways to run a marketing campaign in the social media. The first method is free of charge and concerns the building of supporters, fans or connections by providing useful content, running competitions and generally contacting users.

According to Pew's last survey, nearly 70 percent of people living in the US use at least one social media network. Over 2.5 billion people (growing) are represented in social networks around the world. Creating a viral marketing campaign is a great way to build brand awareness through the power of social media. If two people who are directly related to the brand share content and the number doubles 30 times, it means that more than 1 billion people have made content available.

To clarify and order information on potential viral campaigns, you need to consider the main possibilities of measuring against the goals of a viral campaign. In this sense, some of the most important cognitive results of viral marketing activities may include indicators such as the number of displays, clicks and hits in specific content, as well as the number of social media publications such as Facebook or Retweets on Twitter, which show consumers information received throughmarketing message processed. Measures, such as the number of product ratings or the number of members of the campaign website, determine the number of people who have verified the information provided by Marketing specialists.

The most important part of any viral marketing campaign is to promote potentially viral content. While some types of content inevitably increase, for example, by looking at a product you sell in a popular publication, other types of content require pushing to become viral. As mentioned earlier, most platforms have an algorithm that defines the type of content marked as viral, trendy, popular or current. In most cases, these algorithms look for a link that retains the element of content in relation to the time in which the element of content was published or at a specific time.

Content marketing is another way of digital marketing that allows you to promote your online business. In fact, content marketing is a method of indirect marketing, because it publishes content that the public naturally finds when surfing the web. The main goal of content marketing is to enable viewers to interact with content through reading, sharing and commenting. It can also be used with other types of digital marketing, such as SEO or SEM.

Viral marketing is reserved for content that is spread like a fire on the Internet. The goal is to disseminate marketing message and enable people to send something to everyone they know. It's a mix of PTO and buzz marketing for digital platforms.

If buzz marketing is a more offline strategy that people use to talk about their products or brands, viral marketing is the best online strategy for spreading messages. Some rules that apply to buzz marketing also refer to viral marketing, because there should be a good brand, some information to discuss and something special, noteworthy, outrageous. Just like computer viruses are spreading like a fire, because more and more people are opening or installing applications on their computer, viral campaigns are spreading due to their uniqueness and offer.

Viral marketing is a technique by which marketers deliberately quickly disseminate their message. Like the biological virus, the marketing campaign spreads from one person to another, resulting in a large number of views, significant social contributions and unusual brand awareness. A viral marketing campaign should use the emotions of users, especially positive ones, such as joy and admiration.

There is a common misconception that viral marketing depends on the ability to reliably create something very popular. In fact, a successful viral marketing campaign is more about understanding how to connect to specific demographic data, presenting them valuable content. During the Blair Witch campaign, filmmakers and major marketing agents were outstanding film students. They took a look at what makes horror films attractive to teenagers because of teenagers' demographics and how these demographic data convey information.

TV advertising, social media, blogging and other distribution channels. The campaign was a great branding exercise for the company. Women's campaigns were passed on to their friends and family members. They managed to reorient their brand to embrace both young and old women. Emotional overtones of the campaign affect women, regardless of their social position, religious beliefs, etc. If you plan to run viral marketing campaigns in this way, make sure that you do not get unintentional distances from certain social groups because it seems too visible or dirty.

Thanks to buzz marketing, companies try to inspire, shock or excite conversations about their business. Buzz marketing is about encouraging people to talk and is not just waiting for people who suggest your company. Buzz marketing can work with all types of marketing, including content marketing, partisan marketing and social media marketing. The roots in Virginia are an amazing example of this.
