Internet Memes for Business: The Good, the Bad…and the Grumpy | Social Media Club | memes technology marketing | Scoop.it

Chances are you have seen an Internet meme by now, especially if you spend any time on social media. Grumpy Cat rules the Internet in much the same way most cats rule their houses. Most people enjoy memes, and for a good reason.

 

Typical memes, by design, appeal to the 12-year-old in all of us – they are either funny, cute, raunchy…or all of the above. Better still? Memes are free and easily transferred between people online – and they hold a great deal of potential for being seen by a lot of people. Enter Internet memes for business; what marketer or business owner would turn down an opportunity to use a technique which is already so popular…and inexpensive?

 

Are Internet memes for business a good idea? Sure, people like memes and share them – a lot. Organizations that want to increase their online presence may find memes are effective in spreading their names and messages. On the other hand, brands may want to consider the possible negative ramifications in regards to their reputations. What may seem like a good idea at the time could result in problematic consequences when not completely thought out. Serious businesses rarely succeed by building their foundations on trendy topics....

Pascal Jouxtel's curator insight, June 23, 2013 4:16 AM

Il y a de nombreux articles sur ce sujet, et pour cause ! Quoi, un phénomène aussi populaire que les "Internet Memes" et le business n'en profiterait pas ? You must be kidding !

 

J'ai choisi celui-ci car il titre bien sur le "Internet memes" et ne prétend pas parler des mèmes en général. Et j'aime bien la façon dont l'auteur parle des petits contenus répicatifs comme s'il s'agissait de créatures existant indépendemment de nous. Cela illustre un des attraits romanesques de la théorie des mèmes, au temps de Harry Potter.

 

Cet article donne corps à ce que j'annonçais il y a 8 ans dans le chapitre de conclusion de "Comment les systèmes pondent" (chapitre que je vous invite à relire...) 

"Tous les propos tenus actuellement sur la mémétique relèvent peu ou prou de l’une de ces trois voies : politique, spirituelle ou scientifique.

La quatrième, la plus discrète, consiste à commercialiser les résultats sous forme de techniques d’influence. En raison même de sa puissance d’interprétation du jeu humain, on ne sera pas étonné que, dans un proche avenir, la mémétique entraîne dans son sillage de très nombreux praticiens dans les secteurs du conseil en management, de la communication et du
marketing, bien avant que l’université ne lève une paupière.
Tout dépendra du rôle que cette dernière envisage de jouer."

Darrin Donahoo's insight:

Laxatives

People might not know this but one most productive category for independent drugstores is antacids/laxatives the products ranks third in dollar sales, contributing just fewer than 10% of the outlet’s total health and beauty care. Most consumers are embarrassed to buy these items in the store because people might look at them funny. This is important because some people really need this product. By the looks of a couple of articles this medicine is a top seller. I want to let people know that there is no shame in buying a laxative and that some companies use memes to promote their product.
