    The four types of marketing can overlap at one point.

    In basics:

    1. Viral marketing means sharing information (promoting a brand, products and services) that also incentivizes the receiver to share it further on. This is usually done on social media platforms (and it becomes part of social media marketing), but it can also rely on the word of mouth and other means.

    2. Email marketing obviously uses email messages for advertising. The messages are usually sent to targeted prospects that are subscribers to own list or a rented list. They can also be companies that you find online and you wish to contact and introduce yourself to.
    I would like to mention that, in very rare cases, these email message can also go viral (the sender asks the receivers to forward the message to their contacts that may be interested in the information provided).

    3. Affiliate marketing means using affiliates in promoting own products and services. The affiliate can be a person or an organisation. They have the official right to advertise on behalf of the business they are attached to and they are usually paid based on their performance.

    4. Social media marketing refers to the usage of social media platforms (Facebook. Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc.) to attract attention to your business. The actions considered as being part of social media marketing: posts (that are usually intended to go viral), paid campaigns, likes, follows, shares, connecting to others and so on.
