how to make content go viral (1)Thanks to our friends at MySiteAuditor.com for this wonderful graphic with the secrets of making  your content go viral!

There’s no hard-and-fast rule for making content go viral, but some practices help a lot, such as:

Logistics

  • Write long, high-quality articles with 3,000 to 10,000 words.
  • Post content early in the week, specifically on Tuesdays.

Format

  • Write list articles (known as listicles) with around 10 items.
  • Turn text content into a visually captivating infographic.

Emotion

  • Produce happy and cute content to uplift people’s mood.
  • Create quizzes that help people learn more about themselves and feed their ego in the process.

Social media

  • Reshare your own content across all your social media site.
  • Request influencers in your niche to share your content.
  • Add a short bio to make people know that there’s a real person behind your brand.

Be consistent in your efforts to increase the chances of going viral. Sooner or later, you’ll hit gold (or 10,000 shares).

    This post really caught my attention, Mike!

    Glad to know about the day of the week and happy/cute content. Could the 10K word posts that are listicles/lists actually be roundup posts? I’ve heard those are great for getting a ton of shares.
    Thanks!
