Meme Creation


A meme is a virally-shared image, often featuring text and usually sharing satirical commentary on social ideas or current events. Memes are normally created and shared in either photo or video format, although they can sometimes take the form of a simple block of text. When a particular meme resonates with many people, it can then spread organically via social platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram, Tumblr, SMS messaging, etc. – and the further a meme spreads and gains in popularity, the greater the influence it has.

If you decide to implement memes into your marketing efforts, this can definitely grab people’s attention, increase your reach, and even help boost your brand awareness. Not to mention, it can also prove to be an engaging, fun project for your team to take on. To get the most out of your memes and their performance potential, you’ll definitely want to strategize and plan things out before creating them. Even if your meme doesn’t end up blowing up and going viral, using an already-popular image or existing meme that’s already gone viral and has the attention of millions of people on the web, will definitely increase your chances of your target audience taking notice.
