The title of this infographic is really The Secret Formula for The Perfect Viral Share. I love the infographic but I’m not a fan of the name… first, I don’t believe there’s a formula.

I’ll be honest, though, and admit that I think this infographic just may be full of it. Terms like agile marketing, infographic and gamification aren’t marketing buzzwords, they’re actual terms that every marketer needs to fully understand. And my biggest
Having seen ten times as many viral strategies die than survive, I’m not sure I’m a huge believer that there’s some sort of viral winning algorithm. True that some agencies are much better than others… but I don’t believe that anyone can promise a viral strategy… unless they put up some BIG money and prizes to support it.
