Welcome to Viral Seeding
Viral Seeding is a viral marketing agency that specialises in seeding and online PR. With over six years experience, we’ve seeded over one hundred viral campaigns for leading brands and organisations that include Jaguar, Björn Borg, BBC and the United Nations.
Our clients use us because we combine editorial outreach with paid for placement to ensure that the campaigns we seed not only receive views but also buzz, comments, interaction and ultimately sharing through social media.
Please take a look at the campaigns that we’ve worked on and feel free to get in touch to see how we can help your next campaign go viral.
Seeding is finding and approaching influential web and blog editors who will find the content interesting and engaging, so much so that they will want to share it with their visitors, their visitors then share it with their peers via social media. Viral Seeding has experience of how best to approach bloggers, with over six years of seeding content and building relationships with influential bloggers. Viral Seeding understands the blog and websites within areas as diverse as mobile and technology to food and parenting.
We can seed any branded content which can be a video, Facebook app, game, microsite or competition and are able to tailor the strategy to suit most budgets. We monitor the progress of the campaign in real time, keeping you up to date with the view count and coverage as the content spreads and provide a full report upon completion.
Seeding has three elements – outreach, placement and promotion.
Outreach is contacting the website and blog editors that will find your content of interest and encouraging them to share it with their audience resulting in posts, Tweets and Facebook sharing of your campaign. The coverage secured is organic and is the endorsement of your product or service from the influencer. With our experience, we know how best to approach bloggers and we’ve built strong relationships with influencers in areas as diverse as technology, motoring and parenting.
Paid for placement involves placing your content in a prominent position on high traffic and targeted websites. This is a hugely effective way of driving a large volume of targeted views to your content and increase the viral sharing in a short period of time.
Promotion involves managing the promotion of your video on the YouTube platform to your target audience and geographical location.
In addition we also offer consultancy, social media management, design and have the capacity to create and produce virals with our network of directors and film makers. Having worked in the industry for six years, we’re well placed to help you with your next viral campaign.
Why use Viral Seeding?

Our approach effectively targets your market through approaching relevant blogs with your content to secure coverage that leads to a very credible relationship with a potentially enormous audience and to the viral effect of content being shared through social media.

“Viral Seeding are great to work with and deliver both a healthy number of views and positive editorial placements to go with them – this is a great combination to be able to offer.”
Ben Mason, Director, The Tom Sawyer Effect
We get pitched from PR agencies across the globe every day, and the majority of them are clueless when it comes to speaking to bloggers. That’s not the case with Lee, and Viral Seeding. When we get a pitch from Lee, we know it’s been vetted, trust that it’s worthy of our attention, and it’s almost always filled with awesomeness. Lee gets it. In short, he “speaks blogger.”
Darryl Ohrt, blog editor, Brandflakesforbreakfast
