Viral Marketing Secrets & Social Media Marketing Strategies from Reality TV.mov


How would you feel about meeting one of your
favorite reality show TV stars? With all the choices out there it’s hard to find at least
one reality show that hasn’t caught your attention. Over the years, it’s likely that
you’ve been able to enjoy watching a series like the Celebrity Apprentice with Donald
Trump, The Ultimate Fighter series with Dana White, Real Housewives, or MTV’s classic,
The Real World. I admit to being a fan of the popular show
Survivor. I’ve loved it since the first season and find it so interesting to watch
the dynamics of social interaction that I can hardly stand it. It’s my vice. Within a few weeks of the conclusion of Season
18 of Survivor Tocatins, I was outside having some dinner with a friend of mine in Springfield,
Missouri. Our table was outside, on the sidewalk, and we were at a little bar and grill downtown
called Trolley’s. Coincidentally, it was owned by another reality TV star, Aaron Buerge
from the show The Bachelor. I asked my friend, who also happened to be
a Survivor fan, if he thought the guy coming toward us, walking down the sidewalk, looked
like they guy from Survivor they called “Coach” and he said yes. It made sense because, his
real job was being a soccer coach at Southwest Baptist University which was only about 30
miles away. Coach and his friend stood there for a moment
looking for a table, so we stood up, introduced ourselves and offered to share our table and
buy the drinks if he was willing to share Survivor stories. He agreed and we hung out
for about an hour. We talked about the other players, the living conditions, his real life,
the editing, and all kinds of other things. He was really cool, incredibly interesting
and genuinely a very nice person. I had never spoken a word to him before that
evening, yet I REALLY felt like I knew him and had for a long time. Even though I was
a complete stranger to him, he seemed like one of my best friends. If not, why else would
I have offered to share a table and buy drinks? Here’s the point. When you see people on
TV or web video, it is easy to get a feel for them and develop a level of comfort with
who they are and what they’re about. It happens very easily and quickly. There’s
no doubt that you have feelings for or about plenty of people you’ve never met, whether
it’s politicians, athletes, actors, or musicians. When it comes to building your professional
credibility and getting followers, friends and fans both online and off, it’s hard
to beat the power of using internet video. If you haven’t already started, then let
me encourage you to embrace the idea of using web video for more than just YouTube marketing.
Consider using online video marketing as part of your website marketing strategy, email
marketing campaigns, mobile marketing campaigns, internet branding and social media marketing
tools as well. Give as many people as possible the opportunity
to know you and find out what you’re about. Viral marketing becomes possible. Your ideas
become accessible 24 hours a day all over the world to anyone with a computer or mobile
device with Internet access. When you make good videos and do so often, prospects will
want to become your customers. When people feel like they already know you, like you
and respect your expertise, then growing your business can become much easier and happen
much faster. By the way, if you find all this new media
and social media stuff confusing and all you really care about is finding out how it all
ties together so you can grow your business, without putting an unnecessary strain on your
resources, then I made a video just for you that alot of people have told me cleared things
up for them. Check it out at buildatribe.com and feel free to let me know if it helped.
