Society has become more and more digitalized. Thru time, consumers have built up a resistance for classic marketing strategies such as advertisement in magazines. The resistance for advertisement hasn’t yet become as strong in the digital world. One of many reasons for that is because the digital world is constantly evolving and changing. This change has forced companies to come up with new solutions in order to differentiate them from the competitors. One strategy that has become popular is viral marketing. Viral marketing comes from digital WOM which means that people talk about the company to friends and family. From a consumers’ perspective, viral marketing is still quite new and that is why the authors have chosen to study consumer behaviour regarding sharing advertising videos. In this study, the authors have chosen to collect the primary data with two different methods, a focus group and a survey research. The purpose for the two different methods is to get an overview of the current behaviour but also to get a deeper knowledge of the individuals’ thoughts and the group dynamics that exist. Results of the study shows that consumer behaviour regarding sharing advertising videos depends on; if the video has a capturing story, if the consumer gets affected or if the individual or someone can get benefits from the video. Who is sharing the video, if the video is talked-about or if the individual has been recommended to watch the video are factors that affect if the consumer wants to watch it and where it allows themselves to be exposed to it.
