Viral Marketing Agency Says "SEO is Dead!"
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
A Buzz Marketing Advertising Agency is holding free webinars and giving free reports to entrepreneurs to teach them the methods of viral advertising and social marketing to improve their business.
Company founder, Maurice Evans, a Guerrilla Marketing styled business coach and viral marketing expert says, “I had taught SEO for almost a decade before becoming reformed and going exclusively viral. I was one of the pioneers of internet webinars on SEO, way back in 1999 when people still had 28.8 modems and couldn’t figure out where to plug in their mics and speakers. Since 2008 I have discovered that SEO as a primary marketing service, is pretty outdated and a waste of time and money for SMB’s.”
GuaranteedViral.com creates short videos designed to go viral as the foundational basis for their campaigns, but says that it is only a small part of the mix. The company states on their website they use a social and media mix to drive traffic, and then use proven conversion techniques to increase the bottom line profits of their customers. Their social mix includes RSS feeds, Podcasts, Media Exposure, Video Distribution, Article Distribution, Social Bookmarking, Forum and Blog posting, Social Networking and more to focus eyeballs to the directions they want.
The company, which apparently is not afraid of controversy, created a small buzz for itself earlier this year by spreading a Youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q1kmZw51bA) of a man eating a live lizard.
“We are not all about controversy, although it can be one of the possible ways to induce a viral response in the social sphere,” said Evans, “In fact, conflict and entertainment value is probably the least common focus we’ll usually use as a method to encourage viral sharing in today’s social culture. However, we never forget production quality and entertainment value are important elements of any video driven campaign.”
The company says a good portion of their customer base comes as a result of the SEO benefits they create through Viral Marketing. “SEO can never cause a viral reaction due to its very nature. Worse, it is slow to implement and produces short-lived results. Conversely, Viral Marketing automatically generates SEO as a natural side-effect, plus it is super fast to implement and becomes a permanent traffic generation source. The best part is it is a search engine dominating force very difficult to stop or overtake. We teach Entrepreneurs in our seminars how to use viral marketing to their advantage,” states Maurice.
Indeed, the effects of their viral marketing campaigns are pretty impressive. With less than a week to produce results, Evans’ firm recently was able to use viral marketing to help crown an entrepreneur from Ireland, Oliver Dempsey, the winner of a 50,000 Euro (approximately $68,000) competition sponsored by major telecommunications firm Telefonica O2.
GuaranteedViral.com viralized his “Daisy the Cow” video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qU1H6YmGq0E) generating 100s of links in Google and 1000s of views on Youtube in just a few days. This rapid exposure enabled Oliver to win by a landslide due to securing several hundred more votes than the closest running challenger in the competition.
The company usually holds one or two webinars per month and announces them 2 days before they occur. Recordings are made available to their newsletter subscribers who can not make the live webinars. The next free viral marketing is schedule Saturday October 2nd at 2pm EST.
Their website homepage, http://www.GuaranteedViral.com also offers a free subscription sign up to their newsletter. Subscribers receive links to download free reports on how to use social media in business and information on their upcoming free webinars.
