w00t!media, the independent online advertising sales house, has partnered with GoViral in a deal which will see it become the viral marketing company’s exclusive UK sales partner.

w00t!media, which brings cult web sites and big brands together to deliver pioneering online advertising, will now broker deals for clients to run viral campaigns using it’s own extensive knowledge of best practice viral marketing and GoViral’s technology and seeding expertise. w00t!media’s past and present clients include T-Mobile, Microsoft and adidas.

GoViral’s seed&track viral marketing solution is present in 27 countries. The company has offices in London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Hamburg.

“GoViral is a niche agency in the big league – it hasn’t compromised the principles of how a true viral campaign should run,” said Austen Kay, Director of w00t!media. “Its technology is second to none in our opinion and we believe it is the leading viral seeding specialist in Europe. We find most advertisers still target a handful of key video sites to generate viral views. But the question you have to ask is whether this is a truly viral experience? Is the content being talked about or passed on? Go Viral turn this on its head. It targets users not sites; seeding content across relevant touchpoints.”

The deal with w00t!media is part of GoViral’s plan to bolster its presence in the UK over the coming months, specifically among advertising agencies.

“We have teamed up with w00t!media to meet the increasing demand for our products in the UK market,” said Claus Moseholm, Partner at GoViral. “It’s the perfect partnership, as the company already works with our key clients - the media planners and buyers. Overnight we will have a broader reach and the ability to engage in new client relationships.”

GoViral will now become w00t!media’s lead viral marketing partner, as part of the w00t!viral offering.
