Our 5th Anniversary: Meet The New ViralBlog

Today is the 5th anniversary of ViralBlog. Our modest party includes below OOH campaign, launched in our home town Amsterdam, powered by our friend from Kinetic. But we have also included a surprise for our very supportive audience.

With over 1.000.000 loyal readers in 2012, the new ViralBlog is designed to inspire the global marketing community, putting them in control.

Our readers can personalize ViralBlog and schedule e-mail notifications to get the most relevant answers to their specific questions.

The new design includes more special features and new categories that we’d like you to try. Soon we’ll also add a new category called start-up stories and other new categories that will include trends and disruptive innovations.

It has been a crazy ride, in which we have been predicting many viral hits, exploring ground-breaking ideas, and sharing stunning social marketing cases and trends with a global marketing minded audience.

We are happy with the #65 rank in the AdAge Power150 of best global marketing and media blogs and we are grateful for the many awards that we have received from like-minded peers.

We truly value all the peer discussions that have sharpened our vision and really supported our mission. We’d like to thank you for sharing all the scoops and showing us your love.

Next we want to thank our sponsor ViralTracker for their trend benchmarks, insights around social and viral videos and for their long term sponsorship.

We are still looking for a partner that will help us to create a stunning mobile presence and mobile App, and for a partner that can help us to revamp Viral Friday into a cool Web TV format.

If our new blog might seem like a mash-up of Pinterest and the new MySpace, we are happy to share our “rationale” with you. We wanted to refresh our old blog format into a glossy, digital opinion magazine, suited for both desktop and mobile devices.

The epic center of our blog is a “Zite-alike” engine that puts our readers in full control, and increases the relevancy for the several interest groups within the marketing community. It’s not our blog, it’s yours!

We created a new mission statement and a new editorial bible that supports and inspires our growing number of guest bloggers.

Our editors have a passion for disruptive powers, forces that can break through conventions. We are about trends, not just news.

We are sharing share our opinions: Our subjective beliefs that are a result of our knowledge, experience, emotions and our interpretations of facts.

If you want to write for us, we are looking for established authorities that have a track record of writing detailed articles at C-level. Drop us your bio with links to 3 of your most recent stories.

To join us on our mission become a member here. To get the relevant stories delivered to your inbox, you can schedule your topics here.

For interviews, workshops and keynote speaking engagements, discover the opportunities at our speaker page.

If you want to reach and engage a global marketing audience at C-level, check out our new advertising and partnership opportunities.

We would love to hear your feedback on our new design and the personalization features that put you in control.

If you like the new experience, sharing our new blog with your like-minded peers would be greatly appreciated!
