Like the title says, your blog needs a viral marketing strategy. You want your blog, posts and other content to go viral to reach the most amount of people… and bring in the greatest amount of money.
As you create content for your blog, try this viral marketing strategy. These viral marketing tips will help you to create more share-worthy posts, pictures, video and other blogable stuff that could spread like Long Cat around the web:
Create something that will make your visitors FEEL.
You need to be committed and have a strong emotional voice with your content. This should illicit strong emotion in your visitors like incredibly happiness, great love, deep hate, or insatiable anger. Be extreme and biased to get visitors riled up.
Make something unexpected.
People will notice if your content is different, crazy and surprising. Don’t try to make something good looking or cool; make something that will shock visitors because they won’t expect it. After you visitors get over the shock, they will be likely to share it with your friends.
Let sharing be super easy.
Content goes viral because of sharing. If you want your content to go viral, let your visitors download, embed, email, link to, bookmark and more with your content with absolute ease. All of your content (potentially viral or not) needs to have as many sharing options as possible so that it can become a viral sensation with a couple of clicks. If visitors have to cut and paste links themselves, it may be too much work for them to bother sharing it!
Keep your content open.
Don’t restrict access to your content if you want it to go viral. For something to go viral, EVERYONE needs to see it, so you shouldn’t put up any barriers.
If you require people to register to see your content or become a member of your blog, you are doing it wrong! No special codes or passwords should be needed. Visitors should not be required to download software or plugins. Links should not be hidden, special or secret. Anyone and everyone should be able to see, share and comment on this potentially viral content!
Share it yourself.
If you want your content to go viral, people need to know it is there. Duh! You should be sure to spread the word yourself first and foremost with social media networks and bookmarking sites.
These are just a little bit of viral marketing strategy for you to try to make your content go crazy! Has your content gone viral before? What’s your secret?
