Are you looking to go viral today? Do you want the magic formula, the secret spell, that alchemical reaction that will transform your tired old content into a vibrant viral rocket, blasting into the social-sphere of your target audience and sending them over the moon with purchasing-joy? Well…too bad. Buck up buttercup, because contrary to what many of the affordable SEO companies out there are saying, there simply isn’t a viral shortcut.
(Sorry to disappoint you, but anyone who says otherwise is either a liar or an idiot. They can choose which, I’m generous that way.)
Here at Wikimotive, we love Business SEO. We work at it all day, poring over analytics data and tweaking this or that to stay in Google’s good graces. Honestly, it never gets old. Just between you and me, when we lay our heads down at night, we have beautiful dreams of Matt Cutts.
Still though, we’re not going to argue that it’s the most exciting subject in the world. It has more than its fair share of minutia and tedium. As you’ve probably experienced, when you explain it to an outsider their eyes tend to glaze over and a fine string of drool slides down their chin. The unfortunate thing is that this happens even when you’re explaining it to a decision-maker who NEEDS the info.
It’s been 5 years since Pantene put out a magical commercial that transcended what most imagine a commercial should be. To this day, I still watch it from time to time just to get some inspiration. Yes, it’s a touching storyline, but more importantly from a marketing and advertising perspective the way that they set up the “money moment” at the end when you see the glowing air flowing in artificial wind was pure brilliance.
I’ve learned that coincidences don’t really happen. There’s always a reason. As I worked on my story today regarding content, I stopped to check Facebook and found exactly what I needed, courtesy of Jeff Glackin.
We don’t get to post often enough about the automotive industry here simply because it’s more of a general social media blog, but this itself is newsworthy enough. The Internet Sales 20 Group is being held in Chicago from October 23-25 and promises to be a game-changer in the automotive arena. As a result, KPA is not only sponsoring but offering seven scholarships to help dealers attend.
Every marketing department or digital marketing agency dreams of hitting it big with a viral video that is not only popular, but also benefits their brand in some way. There’s nothing wrong with a branded viral video. Pepsi MAX & Kyrie Irving Present: “Uncle Drew” is one example of a branded video done right; it takes a genuinely entertaining concept – NBA player Kyrie Irving dresses up like an old man and plays in a pickup game in New Jersey – and dabbles in a minimal amount of product placement (there are a couple shots of onlookers, probably placed there by Pepsi, drinking Pepsi MAX). Unfortunately, many brands are attempting to hide their involvement in viral videos by making it seem like the video was created by ordinary individuals.
It’s been over a year since I delivered a keynote at the Digital Marketing Strategies Conference in Napa Valley. We drank a lot of wine and talked a lot of social, but the speech I gave was the first one where I really “put it on the line” and made predictions about the way that social media was heading.
There were some wins. It wasn’t terribly prophetic to announce that Google would be getting hardcore into social media as it had already been mentioned as an important concept for the company by then-incoming CEO Larry Page, but it was before Google+ at the time and I think it made some sense. Other things were losers – Klout wasn’t bought by Google (or hasn’t been yet) as I predicted.
Here’s the long video. Let me know if you think I was a fool. If anything, it’s probably the first (and last) time you’ll ever see someone delivering a speech and taking a call in the middle of it.
