Here I go with the politics again! Quite unlike me really! Yesterday I found our about this new YouTube Ad (below) circulating around the Internet. Maybe you will remember the Budweiser “Waasup?” ads that hit TV eight years ago? Well, the original cast in those ads have now done an ad supporting Barrack Obama. This ad, only available online has been available on YouTube for only 3 days (and at the time of this writing) has been viewed 1,827,581 times. Do you see the power of Social Media?
What is happening here is called Viral Marketing. It is the amazing phenomenon where some content is created online (often through Social Media – like YouTube), and it spreads across the globe and from person to person via e-mail, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, all sorts of social media platforms. Watch the video and you will see just how powerful this new marketing methodology and technique can be in promotion of a cause, product, person, or service.
What is your opinion on the video, and the power of Viral Marketing? Will this help Obama win the Presidency? Please click on “comments” and add your opinion below!Tweet
