…….You’re writing an amazing Problem-solving Blog post content
I mean, just think about it.
You spend hours of your time, energy and even money creating content
………But why aren’t they going viral?
No one is sharing your content
Who doesn’t want their content to spread like Wildfire………
…….But how do you make it happen?
Today In this in-depth article,
…………you’ll learn how to write a content that will help you on how to make your blog post go viral and also the promotions needed to achieve its virality
The first thing you need to do is
……..Go to Google.com/trends
Put in keywords related to your Industry
And they will show you what’s popular……..
Whether the trend is going up or down? Or is it in constant?
On the Google trends Homepage, you can also see what’s going viral right now
If you write content related to those topics or phrases
………You will notice that your content will get more social shares and eyeballs
Catch the trends right when something is going Viral
Trends come and go……
But if you want to remain an authority on a particular topic
…….Go to Buzzsumo
Type in Keywords related to your industry or niche
You will see all the article that is going viral in your space based on social shares……
If you know what type of content people in your space love
……..So why try to recreate the wheel?
Instead, take the top 4 or 5 article within the last 12 months
Study them, about why they are going viral, their content style, etc
I am not saying to entirely copy them……….
Just have a peek
And create a better version of them………..
Let’s say they write about 10 ways to Grow your Instagram Followers
………Why not create a more in-depth article on 20 Ways to grow your Instagram followers
Now that you have content that has emotion with the better version of the top article on your niche
The odds are more in your favor…….
3) Envoke Emotion
Create content that people can’t ignore.
………It’s simple as that
See, the thing with Blog Post and Virality is that it’s all about Emotions
Just think about any viral post you have read or seen
They all have one thing in common…….
They have something to do with your emotion
They may be either humorous, sarcastic, Excitement and what not
………..So, If your Blog post has the potential to trigger someone emotion
Chances are it can go viral, if promote accordingly
But if there is little or no emotion at all in your article………….
There is a little chance that your content is gonna go viral
4) Create Content That Are Highly Actionable
…………Content that is practical and straight up actionable tends to have more social shares and go viral
Just provide the actionable steps they can implement to solve the problem
5) Made the Post Super Readable
What I mean by this is that you need to have proper
- Use short sentences…….
- …….Add formatting like bolding and italics
6) Be Original And Be The First
If someone has already written about it……
Then, it’s harder to go viral compared to something done first
But Unfortunately, the Internet is stuffed with valuable content on literally every subject under the sun
………Even this post is far from unique.
It’s very difficult and can take a long time to find an open question which has no answer yet, but it can be done.
You can also invent a new Technique to solve something or make it better
Skyscraper Technique by Brian Dean is one of them…….
7) Include An Awesome Infographic
As they Say, “A picture is worth a thousand words”
……..It doesn’t matter whether you can create an infographic or not
You can go to sites like Fivver, Dribble to hire an infographic designer
……..Embed it on your Blog post
If they are Promote according to the right audience, Infographics do really, really, well
Given the circumstances that it has a fine design, good information……….
It not only helps in virality of your Blog Post but also can generate a ton of Backlinks
……..You can also Submit Your Infographics to these Sites:
- Daily Infographic….
- Cool Infographics
- …….Infographics Archive
- Infographic Journal
- Infographics Showcase…..
- Visual Loop
8) Include A Video( If Possible)
…….Just find and Embed a relevant video which will help convey your message better to your audience
People instead of reading an endless stream of written content, a video is a welcome relief and sometimes helps to better understand and clear the doubts
9) Ask A Blogger Friend To Share
………Sometimes you just have to Ask
Ask them for a share of your Blog Post…….
If they have a Huge following, Then Bingo
But even though, they don’t have a huge following
…….It doesn’t matter
They can really help you get some sort of traction and get the ball rolling…..
10) Re-Publish On Medium And LinkedIn
…….By re-posting your content you also run the risk of being penalized by Google
However, with a few adjustments, you will be fine
Don’t re-post the same content immediately after the original article is published.
You should wait for at least two weeks for that article to be indexed by Google……….
Don’t Publish the Entire Article
………..Include a small portion of the article, and put your original article link for continue reading the article on your blog.
……..8 out of 10 will read your headline
And only 2 out of 10 Will Actually click on the article
That means headlines aren’t gonna become your last minute priority before publishing
You need to spend time on your Headline too as much as you spend on your article
Even if your content is Amazing……
If your headline isn’t appealing or catchy
……..People aren’t gonna click much
If you want to generate more social shares
Headline plays a very important part to it
Your headlines must be in such a way that it’s so appealing that people not only click through it but also read the rest of your Blog post……
Here’s How to Write An Amazing Headline For Best CTR And Social Shares
A) Your headline must be between 5-7 Words
……….Headlines with roughly 5-7 words tend to do better than Blog post titles with 3 words or 15 words
If your headline is too long, it’s just overwhelming and people aren’t gonna share much
And also at the same time, if it’s too short
People don’t really know what your content is about……..
Since it’s too short it doesn’t explain to the reader what they are gonna get when they read the article
And they are not gonna really share it
……….You get the Point!
B) Use Adjectives in Your Headline
When you use Adjectives within your Headline, it has higher CTR than headlines without Adjectives
………Examples: Easy; Effortlessly, Actionable, Fast etc
Which one do you think will have more CTR
10 ways to create backlinks
Obviously the second one right?…………
C) Envoke some mystery or Curiosity into it
For Example, “10 Ways Exercising effects your heart | Number 7 will Shock you”
…….People are gonna be like “what’s number 7”
“9 Photography Hacks that actually work”
They are automatically triggered with curiosity
………..And they are likely to Click through it
But don’t be super clickbaity
If your Number 7 is just a normal plain statement
They aren’t gonna trust you the next time you publish a new article
So don’t dupe or cheat them………
So, when you are using these tactics make sure you have amazing points to back up your headline
D) Use The Year
…….Consider using the Year in your Blog Post Headline
But this won’t work for all types of Blog Post
But if you have a detailed guide on like the “Beginner’s Guide For Photography”
You could put it on your headline as “Updated 2018” or whatever the year is…….
