One of the biggest factors that helped JB get so popular so quick I think is the fact that he was able to get his name infront of over 200,000 newspapers USA-wide.
Say each of those newspapers were TERRIBLE and only had 100 readers per day.
If 200,000 picked him up times 100 it would equal 20,000,000 eyeballs on his picture and that know/have seen his name.
Not only that but say 1% went into youtube and looked up his music. That's just about 200,000 people (wait is that correct????).
Say out of that 1% only 20% tweeted and facebooked his video which was a lot more then just 40,000 but we are taking this as an example. 40,000 people times 50 friends/followers = 2,000,000.
Not including all the retweets and all the facebook reposts. What a great way to go viral using PRweb huh?
This is a theory not a fact. This is something I took from my background knowledge of IM and basiacally fit it into my hypothesis. What is yours/ what do you think? * *
