Modern mass marketing techniques  

Here's a good article by Howard Kingston, outlining tangible ways to grow a product to millions of users, including viral marketing, facebook marketing, localisation, open graph, cross-promotion, and discovery. A good overview of modern mass marketing techniques, basically.
