    When it comes to viral marketing, it is important to know the target audience and market through the right channels. The viral marketing strategies should be created in accordance with the nature of the products or services you are selling. As viral marketing is a fast means, make sure you portray the right image.

    Viral marketing is a high-risk marketing communications technique, since it requires significant initial investment in the viral agent and selling. However, there is no guarantee that the campaign will ‘go viral’, in which case the investment will be wasted.

    I agree that it's important to target your audience. Unless you have a broad product that lots of people use (for example...Shoes, T-Shirts, Cars..etc) then it can be difficult. Viral marketing is great if your product targets a large audience though!

    Well like other users have mentioned, and in all facets of marketing and advertising, knowing your target audience is key. I would not think that it is as high risk as some are making it out to be, but it can certainly be a waste of resources, particularly time and money, if you go through all the trouble and fail to do it correctly. Do your research and explore your options first, as with anything.
