We've seen many word-of-mouth (WOM) marketing campaigns help companies or people get more contacts or sales than they can handle. But how do we generate this buzz ourselves?

Once a good idea is used, it doesn't always succeed a second time, like the Million Dollar Homepage on which a British student sold each pixel for $1 to help pay for his college education. He made over 600,000 pounds, or roughly $1,056,000.

Businesses can still generate successful WOM campaigns without a whacky idea. The book Buzzmarketing is one great resource for learning about past campaigns and discovering what elements are needed to make a campaign spread like crazy.
