Viral Marketing, New Means of Communications and Applications
Viral Marketing and Communications, Buzz Marketing, and Word of Mouth
Means of communications are available everywhere where users do interact and communications is a top engagement at the online world. Beside email and messaging there is a whole range of established and new arising platforms. Typical established platforms are chats, forums and newsgroups and the already evolved worlds of newsfeeds and weblogs, which have integrated content syndication features. Another rather new but arising platform is tagging, which still has reached popularity by several services.
Acting in such a space needs some ethical contemplations as users there are engaged by own interests and furthermore private. Numerous and uncontrolled postings are unwelcome and could harm a platform by bothering users. Such activities may become mentioned in public, which on the other side may harm a campaign or even the whole acting enterprise.
It is the trick of viral marketing to get users engaged by their interests. This may happen by a targeted message or entertaining applications. At email and homepages typical and simple tools to engage users is the allowance or request to give information of an email to others and 'refer' or 'tell' something tools. Those do allow to pass on messages and information.
Viral Marketing Tools, Advergames, and Podcasting
Viral Marketing using applications is an up to date trend, which now seems to be stimulated by the availibility of broadband. Beside the interest of users entertaining elements, advertainment, are a way to enforce distribution. Adgames or advergames are free and often sponsored games, which e.g. are available at specialized portals. A good game or joke will become recommended from there or could be sent by permission directly to users. Furthermore advergames beside a marketing message are able to transport product information and to explain more complicated products. Edutainment is suitable for other target groups beside consumers, too.
Audio and video are further forms of media distributed by viral messages. At the entertainment industry the distribution of media files by users picked up from a portal has become most popular. By the ongoing popularity of podcasting now also niches are reachable by audio and by video at videoblogs. After podcasting now videoblogs or vlogs become popular with an estonishing speed.
Interactive Media, Convergence, and Viral Marketing
Viral Marketing now has reached converging media. At mobile communications Multimedia Messaging, MMS, do allow the distribution of advergames, audio and video to and between mobile phones. The same development depending on the infrastucture is happening or expected to happen at other media like interactive television.
Viral Marketing Campaigns and Campaign Measurement
Viral Marketing Campaigns do require planning like all marketing measures. Depending on the form used the design of media is necessary. Similar to common campaigns there are platforms to choose. Adgames may become spreaded at specialized communities, audio and video at entertainment portals or videoblogs and podcasts at audioblogs and weblogs.
Most complicated is the evaluation of a communications based campaign. For the key seeding one need to define multiplicators, which may consist of early adoptors, influencers and keysurfers. Those may pass on the marketing message to other platforms and users. There are specialized agencies engaged in the identification of target groups or persons. Beside this there are some online communities with volunteers. A further way to evaluate platforms, forums and weblogs is to use charts.
Similar to the chaotic dismission of the messages an exact measurement of the campaign success is difficult. Campaign measurement in general is an up to date topic led by user acceptance of cookies. Usually campaign measurements in this reach can be done by link tracking and logs of ad or grapic impressions. Whereas measurements may advance the amount of yearly bought computers may show examplarily that measurements can not be exact. Happenings in a viral world are even more complicated as at communications and podcasting the distributed messages have become completely disconnected from the delivery system. On planning and campaign measurement agencies using data mining technologies may become engaged.

The Fun and Ease of Online Shopping vs. The Brick and Mortar Option
When my sister and discussed our shopping plans this year we found to our surprise that our attitudes were much different. She was the hip New Yorker, living in a trendy section of Brooklyn and commuting in to her publishing job in Manhattan. I'm a down home Midwestern type of girl who prefers to drive everywhere and I love my suburb. We were chatting together on my mother's couch after we had stuffed ourselves with cake from our parent's anniversary party, and when we got onto the topic of shopping (my favorite pastime), my sister gave me quite a shock. While I was dreading the upcoming birthdays and Christmas, but my sister had a very positive outlook. She was looking forward to the experience, and I was flabbergasted.As it turned out, she was a devote of shopping online, and so she was looking forward to surfing around, researching options and deals, and getting all her shopping done early. I argued with her, saying that the personalization of actually finding a gift by oneself in person was something that couldn't be duplicated by a machine. Also, many of the really great items I would like to get were not the kind of items that were technologically oriented, and what little vendors would have their stores online?The debate got pretty heated, and soon we decided to bet on it. We bet each other a new iPod player (pretty technologically oriented there, but I figured that I could sort it out once I won) that the other person would have much better shopping runs if each of us used the other's techniques. I was positive that if she could discover how nice it was to go into the brick and mortar shops, she'd forget all about online shopping ? and I definitely knew that I would like shopping online. Since we were basically buying gifts for the same people, we'd have a fair contest. We'd be fair in our evaluations, as well, and insist on telling each other how we'd done. Each of us would rate the shopping system on ease, quality, price, and getting gifts that was appropriate and appreciated by the recipients. Here's our results:For our brother's present, I hopped onto the internet and typed in bird watching into the search engine. After searching through a couple options, to my surprise I quickly found a birding book that was specific to our state, plus a CD of bird calls. The site not only offered free shipping, but would wrap the package and mail it to the my brother. "Well", I thought. "That was easy ? but I knew books and CDs were easy to get via the internet. How about something tough?"I thought I'd cheat a little bit by trying to find something that could only be bought locally. That failure would take my sister's idea out the utility of online shopping and blow it completely out of the water. For this specialized task I picked one of my favorite foods ? the organic, wild blueberry pancake syrup sold in our local farmer's market. While it's always a pain to wake up early on Saturday mornings to drive all the way down to the market, it's worth it to get this locally-made, yet exotic product. Unfortunately for me, it was easy to find. I entered the phrase Blueberry Syrup into Froogle and it was the first product sold there. I had no idea they sold this stuff on the internet! The new franchising and marketing opportunities have enabled the local growers to market and ship their product all over the states.One last shot ? I'd look for something for my sister, to get something so personal and unique that you'd definitely have to go there to get it. It was an item that we had seen on a friend's wall, and for years now my sister had wanted one of her own. As it turns out, Thai elephant painting (the elephants grab paintbrushes with their trunks and then paint a canvas) is now online, and yes, they will take custom orders. I hadn't really been willing to fly to Thailand to get a painting, anyway, but I certainly hadn't thought that would have been online.I called up my sister in defeat. After two hours online, I had bought all my major presents. Sis answered her cell phone and said that she was still stuck in rush-hour traffic on the way to the store.
