MarketingSherpa needs agencies and companies using viral marketing and advertising to participate in this year’s survey on Viral Marketing, and to submit their best viral marketing and advertising campaigns for the 2006 Viral Advertising Hall of Fame, at http://06ViralMarketingSurvey.MarketingSherpa.com. "Last year, we conducted the first survey, gathering practical information and data about Viral Advertising. We were blown away by participation from more than 2,400 survey participants," explains MarketingSherpa's Publisher Anne Holland. “We’re interested in seeing year-over-year data, as well as this year’s most successful viral marketing campaigns.” The survey results will be available for free at MarketingSherpa.com and will be sent to everyone who participates in the survey: http://06ViralMarketingSurvey.MarketingSherpa.com. The survey deadline is March 17th; for campaign submissions, March 22nd.
The 2005 Viral Advertising Showcase highlighted 12 viral marketing campaigns from BBC Learning, Mazda Motors UK, BMG/RCA, Jewelry.com, QuickyMart, Switch Interactive, Brawny Towels, Virgin Records, Big Blue Squid, Dr. Comenge, World 66.com and the British Government’s Adult Sexual Health Campaign. Last year’s report helped make clear what Viral Marketing is and separated its impact from buzz, evangelism and influencer marketing. Viral Marketing techniques are promotional campaigns that spread 'like a virus' because of the interesting nature of the content, which might include games, video, audio, quizzes, polls, humor, sweepstakes, contests, etc. The campaign usually draws people to a specific page or microsite built especially for that purpose.
