How to create a buzz... accelerates natural contagion... (2456 hits)

For buzz to spread, two things are needed: a contagious product – one that has inherent value that makes people talk – and someone behind the scenes who accelerates natural contagion.

... The Anatomy of Buzz: How to Create Word of Mouth Marketing; Emanuel Rosen

The questions for most small business owners becomes how to have someone behind the scenes to accelerate the natural contagion. Do you hire the experts? Do it yourself? Then who's managing the business?

One way to entice others to spread the buzz about your business, service, or product is to offer "affiliate incentives." This seems like a big undertaking, but its very simple today with the number of tools available online. By offering incentives to affiliates, other websites will be more than happy to link your products, place your banners, and create natural contagion.

If advertising is hurting your budget, but you need to create a buzz, think "affiliate marketing." If you book is the next best seller; your event is the be all to end all; or you've got the next best product; then affilaite seekers are waiting for you.

For events, list with EventBrite.com which offers a hassle free affiliate program. If you're an author and your book is listed with a site that has a hassle free affiliate program, promote the affiliate program to sell your book. Additionally, there are a number of do it yourself affiliate programs, add-ons, plugins, etc. out there for any type of product.

By offering competive incentives to your affiliates, you'll start creating a buzz instantly and making more money.

i agree with you about creating incentives. i work with a home-based internet service that helps people create residual income. i read a book called the tipping point, and things can change within a few days just through word of mouth. so if anyone is starting their own business then offer some samples or other type of incentive. it really works.

definitely samples if you want to create "word of mouth," especially with bloggers. find the top blogger with your target audience and send them your product. sometimes we hold on to our "sutff." its time to get from behind the eight ball and get out front.

Seasonally, even though xmas is around the corner, its time to start thinking about Easter, where are the ethnic easter baskets? who's gonna change up the game? What about the wedding season?
