In the video world, the standard for quality presentations is broadcast television. Broadcast television is carefully designed to keep the viewer engaged and entertained. Keeping viewership high is critical to advertising revenues, the lifeblood of broadcasting. How do they keep you engaged? Simple… Professionally scripted, beautifully shot, aesthetically pleasing performances designed to move and inspire audiences. You’re probably thinking, well I don’t have the budget to create anything that looks like broadcast television, but I do have an iPhone or a video camera, and a nephew who has iMovie, and I need video on my website. I’m here to tell you to resist the urge.
Viral marketing is a myth. Though not in the way that I imagine you think I mean. A lot of research and statistical analysis goes into creating viral ad campaigns, so I would argue that virality is not a falsely held idea. Recent campaigns that have gone viral would prove otherwise as well. On the other hand, what I do believe is a falsely held idea is that virality can be predicted, or that there is a “formula” for virality. There are a number of recent campaigns have gone viral without all of the planning and research that goes into other campaigns. from 60Secondmarketer
