Off-lately instances of hearing the products going viral are quite frequent. In this article, we have covered what is the secret recipe which makes it happen. Is it a piece of luck or a good strategy? The answer is the latter one. If certain fundamental rules are followed, chances of getting the attention and that too at rapid speed become high. If you have seen the movie “Social Network”, a product when first launched in college, it caught the attention like a wildfire. Off-course in the product itself, basic ingredients were there which made it happen.
If a product has the capacity to go viral, don’t forget it gives you a huge benefit in terms of a reduced marketing budget. This makes it all the more special to make something and make it Go Viral.
It’s not only the reach on digital space which propagates the name fast, it’s actually the word of mouth marketing that plays a dramatic role in carrying the product name from one place to another quite rapidly.
You are all ears now to hear which are those bullet points – let’s run the checklist which will help you in selling your credible solution at top gear!
#1 Does it have social appeal?
If Facebook is the country, it is the most populous nation! Can you beat that! If the product has a liking toward the social world, chances that people will like & share details about you at a rapid pace. People want to stay ahead in the race, hence the quickness and the help of the huge volume in creating ripples fast. First waves can be created leveraging the social front.
#2 Do the users keep on coming back to you every now and then?
The maximum mobile audience keeps on checking a Facebook at-east a couple of times during the day. It is quite addictive and is a big temptation that brings the user back on the application again and again. Is your product such which does the same magic? Like Uber, Airbnb, Google, etc…If your product has the same stickiness, you can be sure to get a lot of word-of-mouth marketing, and most importantly you will get loyal customers.
#3 Does it connect at an emotional level?
This point is quite hard to achieve, is the service provided so powerful that it can brighten anyone’s day or rescue you if things look puzzled? You are having a bad day, after checking out this ‘XYZ’ service it brings a smile making you forget about the hard part during the day. Buzzfeed is one example that comes to my mind while drafting this article, you are likely to come across articles that will make you laugh.
#4 Do you stand apart from the crowd?
Right from your logo to the product & service offering, maintain a proper differentiation. It’s always better to lead the pack rather than follow the herd. Increase your visibility, automatically it’s going to improve if your basic traits are different from others. Don’t compromise on any part in terms of quality and make sure to look different.
#5 Does it offer any practical solution?
Practicality should be embedded in the product, the question should be asked if the solution offered is practical, it brings some benefit to the end-user. This will help tremendously in word-of-mouth marketing.
#6 Each product has a story to share!
Is there any interesting story attached to developing the product or some story exist with every customer if they walk out from the store buying your product like customer service or product packing etc? Stories travel fast and have a long shelf life too.
