A word of caution
Viral marketing is a very viable social media strategy that you can use to increase awareness of your product or service, but it is a double-edged sword. You have to be very careful with the explicit and implicit messages of your viral marketing campaign on the Internet, as it will cross borders and cultures. Racial slurs, gender issues, religious symbols and other similar taboo topics have to be carefully screened out if you want to be successful.

Keep all this in mind, and you will find viral marketing to be a very useful social media strategy that has a very high return on investment - if you know how to use it properly, that is.

Maximizing the viral effect
There are ways you can maximize the viral effect, and one of the most effective ways is to increase the number of people that you first infect." You can do this the traditional way by expanding your networks and increasing readership by sheer marketing finesse, or you can tap pre-existing networks for readers via a "middleman service." One example of such middleman services are the various Twitter followers tools, where you are given the option to power Twitter by buying hundreds, even thousands of followers. Whatever you do, increased readership will always work in your favor when it comes to viral marketing
