Master Class by Brian Hallett: Contagious: When Brands Go Viral
12:10 to 13:40
In this Master Class taught by IE Professor Brian Hallett, we will explore one of the most mysterious and misunderstood aspects of the entire digital revolution: WHAT MAKES ONLINE BRANDED CONTENT AND CAMPAIGNS GO VIRAL?
Together we will examine specific case studies of brands, both large and small, that have successfully used the power of the internet, social media and "sharing" to spread their messages far and wide. And most importantly, we look at the key success factors which Brands employ to get their message out. What do all viral campaigns have in common, and what elements make them unique?
Here are some of the questions we will be examining:
- What do we mean when we use the term "viral content"?
- What are the best examples of viral Branded Content?
- Why do some ideas spread overnight while others simply disappear?
- What are the factors that viral campaigns have in common?
- Is SEO more important than content?
- What does the future hold for online viral content?
