Viral video marketing is becoming a huge and effective trend in the marketing world. It is not just an effective platform for major brands, but small businesses as well.

They typically are humorous or thought-provoking. They may even cause anger or anxiety. These emotional elements are what drives people to share.
Marketing campaigns are implementing viral video strategies to really make a splash on social media, in order to drive a message more effectively.
