4 Viral Marketing Detours To Avoid by:Michael Cheney
You can reap the benefits of what viral marketing can offer your business. But before you can do that, there are some major detours you have to be on the lookout for. Once you've avoided them, your path to marketing success will be cleared and you will be on your way to the profits you deserve.
Below are some of the detours in viral marketing.
1. Negative Expectations.
Your marketing will probably turn out for the worst if you believe it will be so. Minor anxieties about your campaign can turn out to be a huge storm if you don't believe in what you are offering or selling.
Being confident about your business will help you through set backs and expected problems in the process of marketing. This confidence will also reflect on how you present your business to your customers. That's the assurance they will need once they start endorsing your product or service to other people.
2. Missing Factor.
What will your customers get out of all these? This is the question you need to have an answer to before you start your marketing campaign. People will want to get something out of what you are offering.
Consider incentives and rewards to motivate people to market your business. Marketing is also about give and take. You will not get anything if you don't give out something.
3. Complex Process.
Getting your product out there is only a part of the process. The other half is how your customers will go about transacting their business after they decide they want to go ahead and buy your product or avail your services.
Check all other aspects of your website. Contact page, check out counters and payment links. Keep in mind that the purpose of using online businesses is to avoid all hassle and time-consuming process. Make sure your customers can go about doing their business with you fast and easy.
4. No Privacy Assurance.
Your customers may be hesitant to give out private information or referrals at first. This is because there are already lots of cases out there of how other people take advantage of all these information.
Assure your customers about the confidentiality of doing business with you. Once you have gained their trust, make sure you keep that intact since this will be the basis of further business transactions in the future.
These are just some of the detours in viral marketing. There are still more out there. Taking the time to know what they are is your defense against any problems you will encounter in the process of going about marketing your business online.
