Making your content viral

Last Update: April 28, 2017

Five % of bloggers are able to create blog posts “that go viral”, the answer is to beat your rear off until you get lucky. Then try even harder to figure out what’s working and refine what you write to connect with those key elements that resonate with your audience.

It isn't readily apparent what will really rock but there are a few guidelines.

- Unprecedently unique content

- Content that engages readers personally

- content that is engaging born out of engaging experiences

Thomas Edison said Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration!

My most viral post was born out of an aggravating situation. It's true that your audience picks up on this and spreads it effectively!
