Viral Marketing & the Internet.

Viral marketing increases online sales! This concept seems to pop up everywhere on Internet marketing resources. So what exactly is viral marketing? The simplest way to explain viral marketing is to think in terms of mainstream networking. We call it "word of mouth" in the tourism industry. Your contacts know about you and your site and you hope to that they pass that information on to someone else. But hoping is not a good way to approach web marketing, you need to be pro-active in promotion. 

By implementing viral marketing strategies, you provide an incentive for web site visitors to carry a sales message. This incentive is usually a free "carrier" tool for that marketing message or a means by which it is easier for people to spread the word about your products and services.  The idea is not to push your visitors into delivering your sales message to others, but as a side effect of them gaining benefit from a utility or service that you offer.
