Ever wondered why some things become popular, and other don't? Why some products become hits while others flop? Why some ideas take off while others languish? What are the key ideas behind viral marketing? This course explains how things catch on and helps you apply these ideas to be more effective at marketing your ideas, brands, or products. You'll learn how to make ideas stick, how to increase your influence, how to generate more word of mouth, and how to use the power of social networks to spread information and influence. Drawing on principles from his best-selling book, "Contagious: Why Things Catch On," Professor Jonah Berger illustrates successful strategies for you to use buzz to create virality so that your campaigns become more shareable on social media and elsewhere. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to craft contagious content, build stickier messages, and get any product, idea, or behavior to catch on....

Pleasant tone, many tangible illustrations that bring the theory to life. Well-balanced pace. Could be complemented by a practical exercise - but perfect for working professionals who have less time.

This is interesting, (especially learning how things often work in a counter-intuitive manner) informative and well-presented, but I wouldn't call it a course. It is much more like a seminar, albeit a good one, akin to a few TED talks broken up into bite-sized pieces with four quizzes, each after about 30 minutes of material divided into several segments. It can be completed in two hours. There is a lack of student discussion, which for me, is one of the most enjoyable and useful aspects of MOOCs. I wish Coursera would make it clear when a course is on-demand, as was done previously. I understand Coursera is seeking to find ways to monetize their product, and perhaps it is worthwhile for some to spend $95 for a certificate from Wharton, employing the prestige of the institution for use as a diploma mill. I have taken other MOOCs that demand 6-12 weeks of serious effort with the cost of the certificate at half your cost. A bit off-topic: The professor mentioned deciding to wear a jacket in order to be taken seriously due to his youthful appearance. I understand the problem, as I was once mistaken for a high school intern when I was a 27-year-old college graduate, and I was probably carded until almost 40, which is ego-boosting for a female, except when hearing, "must have been some party," when I had been up with sick kids all night . Unless it is especially fashionable in that neck of the woods, I would suggest losing the funky, bad perm; it was the first thing I noticed. With that excellent, strong, masculine bone structure, there are many classic and modern styles that would be far more flattering.

Hi! I am very disappointed that there is no possibilities to download the slides that are presented during videos. Why so, if I paid for the Course? Really, there is nothing difficult to pause a video and make a screenshot of a slide or cut it and insert into Word but why make it so difficult? I always keep slides from other Courses in order to refresh the materials later. And I believe that this possibility can also make the Course of Mr. Berger viral . If I can share his slides with my colleagues and refer to his Course, it can bring more students to him. Do I want now to share about this Course with anyone? Most likely not. If I would know about such inconvinience (no slides available for downloading) beforehand I would not go to the Course at all. It gives very negative feeling both on the Professor's Attitude towards students and also on Coursera team towards its clients. Learning is a possibility to come back to notes of a Course later, refresh it in memory and use it in everyday life or at work. I would appreciate if the team of Coursera will consider this and provide with slides' download possibility in every Course or Inform after the titles of the Courses that the slides are not available for download. We will see then how many people would like to join such courses.

Best regards, Natalia Turkulainen

The course provides you with some basic information about the viral marketing and how to craft contagious content. It is more like an introduction or an introductory class. Professor Berger's way of teaching is very professional and he supports the marketing theories with lots of interesting examples you can easily relate to. However, this course lacks more exercises and more lectures for the students. There are only 4 quizzes to test your knowledge. This is my second course here on and I can't help comparing this one to the one I took 3 moths ago: A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment. That course cost me only 45$ and gave me so much more, compared to this one which costs 95$ and gives very little. I will presume that Professor Berger is new here on and that the course creators wanted to use his name and reputation to attract more students, but for us who opt for the certificate (to possibly increase the job prospects) it is quite disappointing.

Pretty basic info, and I breezed through the entire course in one evening. It was a great review and way to connect ideas and I enjoyed it, but there wasn't anything exceptionally profound or concrete that I learned from it. The quiz questions and answers could use an editor. They were practically unintelligible at times, with lots of typos, grammatical errors, missing words, and more. Definitely wouldn't be worth $95, but great and enjoyable as something that you just listen to for an evening.

This course would be of great support for an undergrad student looking into other areas of marketing and research. The content is not new, actually feels a bit date given the examples used. I did enjoy the course because I like to learn and test my learning, BUT it lacks depth. There is no reading material which would have helped with the lack of depth.

Bottom line for me is, I get a certificate in LinkedIn from Wharton, but truth be told anyone can audit this.

This course is brief and very concrete. It introduces key concepts to help you to create content that matters. I strongly recommend you to complete it if you are playing a community manager role, or if you are working in a marketing team, or even if you are a learning content developer, as you will find here a lot of tips to engage your learners.

All in all it is a great course to find resources and get a general overview of how things catch on. I liked it as an introduction to the subject, but I do think that more excercises were in order to fully grasp the theory that was very well illustrated by examples in the videos, and actually learn how to craft the contagious content.
