The Ballad of Old Spice’s Viral Marketing Campaign

Last week, there were reports circulating around the web that Old Spice’s incredibly popular viral marketing campaign was in fact, nothing but a failure, as the company’s sales figures showed a drop of around 7 percent. Major news websites immediately pounced on the opportunity to share the story, which immediately gave people the idea that viral marketing only gets attention and does nothing for the business itself.

Online videos however, aren’t just limited to sites such as YouTube, MySpace, and Daily Motion. Webmasters and those who maintain blogs can now copy the codes of videos and paste it on their sites, thereby extending their reach and helping create the next online sensation.
