Viral Marketing is something that everyone who is about to start a marketing campaign should look into.

Second Life seems to be very popular with companies as I've seen a lot of them have spaces in Second Life just to promote their products.

IBM for example has a huge space dedicated to their company, in Second Life.

Article Submission Services said...

Submitting articles is still the best and most cost effective
way to drive traffic to your site, and Article Post Robot is
the best investment you can make for your money to get this job done. Don't spend you money on submitting services as you have no control as to what directories they are submitting to. Submitting a bunch of articles to 30 or 50 sites by hand is a time consuming task. Therefore,article submission sites offer submission services which usually blast your article to 30 or 50 article directories automatically. Submitting to
one or two article directories is still not much of a hassle. But in
order to be really effective, we need to submit to hundreds of article directories.
