by Karine Kugler @ The Three Marketers

Ever since the first few viral videos the Internet, business owners and online marketers have been fascinated by their potential to draw traffic. The thinking goes something like this: If millions of people will click through to watch a video of a cat singing show tunes, shouldn't there be a way to generate something that's similarly amusing… only with a slight commercial appeal?

Not surprisingly, most of them have failed to have any sales and marketing impact whatsoever. And so, before you go trying to make the next viral video, ask yourself whether you are making a true online marketing tool, or just an expensive lottery ticket?
