Over the past decade or so, memes have become a deep-rooted element of the digital world, particularly on social media. But you’ll be surprised to learn that it was a term coined by biologist Richard Dawkins back in 1976.
It was meant to describe cultural trends that become rapidly popular. Going by his definition the idea of democracy would be classified as a meme. Today, humorous images, videos, or any textual content are what pass for memes. Typically, they’re copied content (with minor variations) that have spread on the internet like wildfire.
But what’s this got to do with marketing? A lot.
Memes are probably the most viral form of content there is. You can create a buzz about your brand by being the subject of one of these memes. You can even leverage influencers, adept at the art of meme-making to create an ad for you.
