Viral Content; How to Achieve It
Most of us are in the social media marketing realm for the purpose of getting ourselves out there, expanding our reach, building our lists, branding ourselves, and ultimately solving problems for our target market.
We want to create a buzz, the coveted viral content that others will share enough times over and over so that we become visible to the masses.
Content syndication is one of the most powerful aspects of social media marketing.
Once you create valuable content that has high visibility through content syndication, you have created the potential for viral content.
If your content targets the needs of your niche market, and you achieve syndication of that content, then you’ve hit a home run, you have viral content.
It’s likely that you already know what content syndication is.
And the power it possess is that as each person that shares your content shares it with their network, and this repeats another 2 or 3 times, you have created viral contentl.
But, you cannot achieve this kind of high visibility without a content syndication network.
How a Content Syndication Network Helps You Create Viral Content
This is how your content can go viral. You extend the reach of your own network, which thereby becomes your Content Syndication Network.
This group of people might consist of your friends on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or specific groups and forums for example. So be sure first of all that these friends, forums and groups are in your target market!
But an even more effective solution has been rising up in the last year, and gaining momentum especially now with Google’s latest search engine algorithm changes.
And that is to become part of a Tribe and achieve mutual content syndication to achieve what other wise take a while!
My traffic increased immediately upon submitting content to at TribePro caused my content syndication to increase dramatically. It allows the use of OnlyWire to automatically syndicate, and I’ve seen posts I submitted have over 100 shares within the first day!
The key here is that you do not submit your own content to the bookmarking and social networking sites but that it is submitted by more than one person to their own accounts. This indicates social proof that your content is submitted multiple times.
If you want to have your content go viral with a few clicks of the mouse, and avoid the pain of waiting years for organic results, this is a must have.
Providing Value to Create Viral Content
But none of this means anything, that is, it won’t matter if you HAVE a content syndication network if you do not provide value.
You will still not create viral content.
It won’t matter how many friends you have, or how many groups you join, or how many posts you share.
Over delivering the kind of value added content that at least provides some kind of education, enlightenment or entertainment, and which solves a problem faced by your niche market, is how you achieve that kind of visibility.
This kind of content will not only push your reach by way or shares on social media sites, but also by way of backlinks from other blogs, social bookmarking sites and RSS feeds as well, all of which only increases your SEO.
Providing value to your network is not only how you transform it into a content syndication network.
It is how you can create viral content.
If you feel you don’t have value to add, content to bring to the table, you are wrong!
Every one of us has individual gifts and talents to offer, and someone is out there looking for you.
So be sure to convey what you learn, every step of the way, and as you learn and teach, you learn even better, and you will become an expert, teaching and helping those who follow you.
Your knowledge will grow, your leadership abilities will grow, and more and more you will find your value is appreciated.
Creating viral content is no more than sharing your knowledge in a manner that helps your target market, giving without want, and building know-like-and-trust.
And to be seen by enough people, building enough relationships in the process, we build our own tribe and our efforts come back to us tenfold a result.
Viral Content will get you noticed, produce more traffic to your blog, videos or articles, and produce more leads!
