Viral marketing

refers to the promotion of products through word of mouth and email. Viral marketing, however, is not related to spamming, but to small groups of people sharing exciting information via email. For example, the popular movie The Blair Witch Project was a success due to the buzz created over the Website and the upcoming movie, months in advance of its release.
