About This Course

Published 11/2014 English

Course Description

Do you ever look at other businesses and wonder just how the hell they get their products or services to go viral?

One day they release a product, next minute they've sold 10,000 of them and netted another 10,000 email subscribers in the process (not to mention their MOUNTAIN of Facebook fans).


"Don't get me started on Facebook fans!" I hear you say...

Usually a few weeks later, you see pictures of them on social media in an exotic location, enjoying the fruits of their labour, while you slog it out acquiring each and every customer.

Sound familiar?

Well, I'll let you in on a little secret...

It's no fluke!

What these people are actually doing is following secret viral growth techniques from the big boys like Dropbox, Twitter and Airbnb (to name a few).

The great news for you is that ANYONE can follow these viral growth techniques. You just need to know what they are and how to apply them to your own online business.

The even better news is, the founders of Social Empire Mark Middo and Corey Topp have created their short introductory course "Social Empire's Viral Launch Blueprint" to show you EXACTLY how.

Here are just a few of the campaigns that Mark and Corey have used these viral techniques for in their businesses...

  • They jammed 1200 people into the first ever event of their startup Reminisce, with no marketing budget or no website making a tidy $150,000 in the process.
  • They clocked up 42,000 Kindle downloads of Mark's best selling book 5 Minute Business, sitting on top of names such as Tim Ferriss and Tony Robbins.
  • They also recently sold out a 1500 person event at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in the space of 2 days, with no email list!

So if you'd like to find out EXACTLY how they did it, and how you can follow the same strategies to cause your product or service to go viral, simply sign up for the Udemy course now.

You won't be disappointed. See you on the inside!

Instructor Biography

Mark Middo, Author of 5 Minute Business

Mark Middo is a serial online entrepreneur, best-selling author of 5 Minute Business and international speaker who has thrived on unconventional thinking. The co-founder of Reminisce Entertainment and Social Empire, Mark is well known for his ability to uncover unique marketing angles and leverage them to create remarkable online revenue growth. Over the last decade, Mark has employed his powerful framework to fuel the success of several online businesses.


Mark’s own story of transformation serves as a real-life testament to the power of his methods. At the age of 20, Mark had made many failed attempts at making a living online and resorted to working as a DJ in one of Melbourne’s most notorious strip clubs. Soon after, Mark applied for university where a burning desire to succeed and succeed quickly saw him plough through a 4 year degree in a mere 2 years. After working his way up the corporate ladder, he was appointed to lead digital at the Formula 1 and went on to work with global brands such as MotoGP, McDonald’s, Renault and Mizuno.

Building on his corporate success, Mark applied his framework to create an online trading indicator in Russia for $150 and sell it to a large currency investment firm in the U.S. for a tidy six figure sum.

Mark then launched his own start up called Reminisce, an online voting system built for nightclubs, with long time friend Corey Topp. Amazed by Reminisce’s instant success, the pair then formed Social Empire so they could help people do exactly what Mark did for Corey – That is to provide a framework, along with the skills and knowledge required to bring an online business idea to life with minimal online marketing experience…

Mark has productised his methods in his international best-selling book 5 Minute Business, which has amassed over 42,000 downloads on Amazon, reaching #1 in the world within the first three days of its release.

As an increasingly prominent expert and influencer in his field, Mark is a mentor for the Founder Institute, a Maven Judge for the Australian Cool Company Awards, the go-to speaker for Australian Government events and has been featured by some of the largest publications in the world – including Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Reuters, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and Anthill Magazine.
