Marketing Using Memes
What are the factors that can influence the success of a meme?
For example, if the author of a meme is known for his good sense of humor and an ability to tell a good story, then it is likely that his meme will be a hit. On the other hand, if the author was a famous comedian and had nothing to do with popular culture, it is unlikely that his meme would be a success.
One of the most important factors in determining whether a meme will succeed or fail is its relation to current trends in culture. The more related it is to current events, the better.
The popularity of something like a viral video has shown us that a new technology tends to inspire its own meme and popular use of that technology is likely to become more prevalent. Other things, like YouTube, have their own memes. Even software used for mass sharing has its own memes.
It is only through the medium of the modern internet that memes can spread so widely. For example, consider the popularity of MySpace. For a while, it seemed as though MySpace was the new blog, but quickly enough it became apparent that users were already getting ready to make memes and shared them by posting the subject of their “meme” with the word “meme” in the subject line.
In the case of MySpace, the meme’s popularity had been secured by its users’ word-of-mouth reputation. As more users became aware of its meme, the number of “interesting” MySpace-related memes grew, and so did the popularity of the meme.
To spread a meme, use it to post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or other popular online bulletin board. If you see someone else doing it, follow suit!
Memes have become very popular on the internet.
With the power of the internet, anyone can put up their own meme and start using it. If you find an interesting meme, let other people know about it.
Word of mouth (gossip) is always free, so don’t be afraid to talk about a meme. Remember, if you like a meme, you should tell everyone else about it! That’s how the meme spread.
You can also create your own memes, either for fun or to promote a new meme. If you do it right, a meme can be a long-term marketing tool.
Memes can be something that you choose to use to advertise your website or business, or they can be something that you create and market. When creating a meme, keep in mind that it should not cost too much, especially if you’re trying to sell it! Your goal is to create a meme that is unique, engaging, and that makes people happy.
Because memes can be funny, memorable, and cool, it is a good idea to avoid using too many words. Instead, keep the jokes short and to the point.
Memes are everywhere now. Follow the trends, create your own meme, and see if it has the success you were hoping for.
