How To Make Your Content Go Viral Like A Wild Forest Fire
Why do your write personal blogs? Why do you write professional blogs? Why do you make a brand? Why do you make site content?
Do you write simply to put that content under a rock or do you write with the hope that it will be viewed, read, understood, liked and loved by others?
Publicity of your content is the main point of making content in the first place. As a content writer you want your content to reach out to a lot people. You want your content to give the message for which it was made but not all contents go viral.
We all think that a content that goes viral must have extra-ordinarily gone through the complexities or it must be from a very famous place or site. But that's totally untrue.
The only key to making a content go viral is to make content that everyone would want to share.
So the question now is, how do you make content that people would want to share? Here is how.
1. Write what you think is right and be courageous.
Most people will write only what people want to read. That may seem the right way but you are writing what they want to read and not what you want them to read.
The point here is everyone is going in one direction towards writing what has already been written a million times before. Your content will just be a brick in the wall. But if you write something that goes beyond that, which they have not read before, that has the chances of going viral.
2. Write skeptical/controversial contents.
90% of the content writers avoid writing skeptical or controversial contents. They all want to be in the good books of others. There is your chance.
Skeptical/controversial contents have the tendency to go viral more than a goody good content.
Your confidence while writing will reflect upon your content so be confident while writing your content and be sure to do research on the matter. Include reference links to support your theory and write quotes to make it interesting.
3. Arouse an argument/discussion.
Content that arouses arguments and discussion whether positive or negative has the tendency to go viral. This is because people love to bring in their "forces" to support the point they have made so they share the links to their friends asking to comment in their favor - hence your purpose gets fulfilled.
4. Take people out of their comfort zone
People are used to living in their comfort zone. They know that cats drink milk, that the clouds bring rain and that Google is a search engine. What would make them come out of their comfort zone will be cats eating a double cheese subway, clouds pouring vodka and Google actually being a wizard with a magic ball.
Write weird things, make people laugh or make an image with unique caption. Give them something that they are not used to and then your content will go viral.
5. Attach your readers emotionally.
Your content will have no impact on the readers if it does not attack them emotionally. They will read your content and they will like it too but it won't create a reaction. Now what is a reaction that we need from them? A reaction of an emotionally attacking blogs is link sharing, commenting and socializing it on all their social networking places.
When your content attacks the readers emotionally, they tend to share it with their friends more.
Emotionally attacking isn't attacking negatively. You can make them sad or you can make them laugh. Create curiosity or give them something to think about.
