The Success Of The Meme Phenomemeon

So, you think you’re a meme genius? Memes are used to “explain the way cultural information spreads.” Generally found as a combination of sarcasm, humor and a play on timely relevant images or cultural fads – memes are our culture’s way of expressing how we feel in a concise, irreverent style.

After over a century of laying low, the dormant memes came back in style full swing in 2001. The phenomenon hit social media sites everywhere, with images of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and current hot-topic images laying as the backdrop to witty jokes and punny one-liners.

For a great look at the history of the meme, click on the image below:

Meme’s don’t exclude any type of media, as long as the message has enough strength to go viral on the web. From images and videos, to gif’s and comic panels, the meme fad is back in style and being used more often than ever before. You may remember some of the 90’s hottest memes, the dancing baby and those unforgettable dancing hamsters, it is the most simple media structures that hit home with users around the world.

Want your meme to go viral? Choose an image or clip that relate to the masses. Inside jokes work well for a small scale meme, but viral humor must be appreciated by large groups of people. Laughter, laugher always gets further on the web than sad or serious things. Users come to the web for a break from reality and hopefully a couple laughs. And lastly, sharing. Get that meme onto Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter and Reddit to get the wheels turning and the share clicks through the roof.

These memes can make the big bucks! With the right elements, playing on real time events and cultural zeitgeist, a viral meme can make money in the millions. The hottest meme images such a Bad Luck Brian and The Success Kid, are perfect templates for your brand to start generating memes that will click with your consumers and you could be the one laughing straight to the bank.
