To demonstrate some of the viral marketing ideas that he taught at the Mixergy Viral Forum, Jason Nazar, CEO of DocStoc, came up with an interesting experiment.

He said that if anyone in the audience posted a message about him on twitter, he’d give them contact information for the top bloggers. The message: “You have to follow @JasonNazar.”

As you can see from the chart above, the experiment increased his Twitter followers. It wasn’t a huge spike, but it was a nice increase over 48 hours. And if the experiment was done with a broader internet audience, it looks like the growth would be higher.

What I also noticed is that it got people talking about him.

What do you think of the experiment? Are there any other viral tests we should try?
