This Week’s Topic

Viral Success Factors for Virtual Business

Why does one viral virtual business attempt succeed, while others fail? What are the key aspects of a successful business plan, product model and marketing strategy that catapult a virally based virtual business into the headlines? What are some characteristics that work against success, and how can they be avoided?

This week we will explore these and other questions about the nature of viral virtual businesses. Bring in some examples of viral virtual businesses you know about, both on the web at large and in virtual worlds, so that we can compare and contrast their strategies and results.

Join us Tuesday at 12PM noon SL, and thanks for being part of “We Are The Network”!

Best regards,

Joel
