  • Virality The tendency of an image, video, or piece of information to be circulated rapidly and widely from one Internet user to another; the quality or fact of being viral @gauravmadaan04
  • Components Virality has many strings attached, some identied, some still a mystery Identied components: - A cause concerning millions (Not always) Innovative exploitation of Hidden Equity (Not always) PR in form of Bloggers coverage (always) Inuencers Network (always) - Evangelists Unidentied Components: - Say X1, X2 etc. @gauravmadaan04
  • This piece of content is developed after a research of 60 viral campaigns (predominantly Indian campaigns in Social Space) @gauravmadaan04
  • Identied Component - 1 A cause connecting millions Normally this is a form of mass marketing, for any campaign to be successful it has to target masses. A cause that is recognisable by a million people at least. An example of this could be campaign called #LikeAGirl done by the brand always under P&G @gauravmadaan04

  • Identied Component - 2 Innovative exploitation of Hidden Equity Lets stay in this space and understand equity rst Equity is the expertise earned by an individual, thing, or an act over a period of time. It should have a following, it should be renowned. If one keeps doing the same thing over and over again, that thing becomes associated with that person @gauravmadaan04
  • Some examples of Earned Equity are: - Sachin Tendulkar! for Cricket CID - Thriller Series Corporate Culture Indian Superhero! Rajnikanth Manmohan Singh! #BeingQuite Sanskari Babuji @gauravmadaan04
