What is Viral Marketing?
We all know how viruses spread like wildfire once they have been released. Viral marketing works in the same manner, yet distributes positive useful information people readily accept and are willing to pass along in the hopes that it will spread around the Net.
There are many methods you can use for viral marketing. One of the most popular is the free report. A product owner will create a report introducing how to use another product or service they are selling. Within this report are affiliate links. The owner than gives away this report with the ability for the receiver to sign up for their affiliate program to get their own link that they can insert into the report by the process of rebranding. Once, a new rebranded copy has been created, the new affiliate then passes along the report to whomever he can, and if someone wants to buy the product through their link, a commission is made.
This benefits the product owner because they can then build up an army of people who will pass the report along. Others are then willing to pass it along because they know they can make it worth their time by earning a commission from their link in the report.
How do You Rebrand a Report?
You can purchase rebranding software from various places on the Net. Some are relatively simple, others are a lot more complicated. You can even find places online like . This is an excellent source to use for finding affiliates who are ready to start branding your report and send it out. How it works is that when you get someone interested in downloading a rebranded report, you send them over to the site and they sign up there and get access to what they need. You don’t have to have viral branding software on hand yourself at all. This is one of the easiest methods for new beginners or people who do not have $67 or more to buy their own software.
If someone does not want to become an affiliate and rebrand your report, they may still pass it along to others if they have a website that offers free valuable downloads. There are many sites online that will host your free report for you, allowing you to receive traffic from their marketing efforts.
Even if you are not a writer but would still like to have a free report to promote your physical products or software, there are other ways you can do this. Ghostwriters can be hired for $5-$20 a page. So if you need a 7 page report, that would be a minor investment for the potential sales that would come from the viral marketing.
