When I started the Jay Today show, I didn’t know whether it would catch on or if people would like it. In the moments since launching the show, however, I’ve realized that the show’s talkable trigger is its length. The show is only 3 minutes long each day, which is different from most video and audio podcasts. This is what has triggered a word of mouth marketing effect.
You may not plan your WOM feature; it’s something might discover over time. But unless you have a talkable trigger for your product, service, or project, you’re never going to be successful.
