Word-of-mouth marketing is the forefather of viral marketing. It has been around for ages. The principle behind word-of-mouth marketing is simple; use influencers to generate peer-to-peer product recommendations or buzz. However, this form of marketing was too disjointed to effectively benefit most advertisers.

Due to the lack of widespread social networks and the World Wide Web, the effect of word-of-mouth was largely contained to specific geographic areas simply. Word-of- mouth was generally limited by the ability of the influencer to physically speak to another prospective customer, hence the term “word-of-mouth”.

When the internet began to rise, it has radically changed the concept of word-of-mouth, so much so that the term “viral marketing” was coined. One of the main advantages of viral marketing is that it doesn’t require a product with a wow factor in order to raise awareness, generate buzz, and kick-start peer-to-peer spread. Instead, the viral campaign’s communication agent is the element that needs a wow factor or element of interest.
