Viral marketing has changed the way that businesses or people promote themselves online. Anything from video clips, e-books, or images can be used to virally promote -- or destroy -- a brand. Viral marketing campaigns have struck particular success on social media platforms and YouTube.
Take, for example, You-tuber Jenna Marbles. Back in 2010, she posted her first video: “How to Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking.” The YouTube audience, although not very size-able at that time, blew up with excitement. Within several hours, her video went viral, and today it has almost 70 million views.
