    Okay people - I need your best ideas.

    I've created a viral movie (see signature) that's aimed at managers/executives, small business owners and entrepreneurs.

    My question:

    What is a good "seeding" strategy to get my movie passed around by as many people in my target market as possible?

    Look forward to your ideas!

    People love to pass around emails that make others laugh. The best way would be to get hold of some funny pictures or jokes, include a short sig about your video in the bottom and send it to few of your close friends.

    Hello Anna,

    First let me say that your movie was well done, persuasive and engaging. Your subject matter is one that appeals to every individual at some time in their life. It's not restricted to sex, race, religion, education or economics. That fact provides you with unlimited marketing opportunities.

    Here's one:

    Select one (or several) of the qualities you highlight in your movie - commitment, faith, persistence, passion - and write a brief PDF report about it. No more than 12 pages.

    Focus on one or two important elements of that quality and explain some of the benefits to be gained from its correct use. Sprinkle a few drills or exercises to actively involve the reader.

    Of course there would be live links at appropriate places in the report that would take the reader to more information, your movie, a newsletter, Web site or product you control. Make sure you urge readers to share the PDF report with friends.

    Then, prepare a short promotional Web page with the requisite hynotic headline, captivating content and online form that asks for "Name" and "E-mail Address" and require visitors to complete the form to download their FREE copy of your movie.

    This tactic will be another way for you to develop a mailing list while spreading word about you and your products... like a virus!

    Oops! I made a boo-boo. The above quote should require visitors to complete the form to download their FREE copy of your PDF report, instead of your movie.

    It is in the report that they would find the link to your movie.

  6. I recently read a free Ebook by marketing guru Harvey Segal called Ultimate-Supertips. In it, he has written what some reviewers call The greatest viral marketing strategy ever.

    I could not possibly post all those strategies here so download a free copy and check it out. I loved it.
