If you have social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook, use them to market your blog. It is one of the best ways to post your content and enhance the chances of it going viral. But this doesn’t mean that whatever you share on your social media account would go viral. For a post to go viral, you must know 2 things – 1) what kind of a post is likely to become viral? And 2) what you must do to increase the chances of it going viral?
5 Ways To Go Viral Using Social Media
Given below are 5 ways in which you can use social media for this purpose.
There are numerous changes that take place on the Internet every day. If you want to stay ahead of the pack, you must be aware of these changes so that you can post your comments wherever you need. To remain informed of the changes, it is best to subscribe to sites that use different ways of marketing and the latest Internet Technology.
Think For Yourself
Sure, experts know a lot about how social media can help you with marketing your blog or product but if you cannot see how that will help generate traffic, then think for yourself and don’t write anything about it. Thinking for yourself also means that you can contradict the expert and express your view about why you think that the expert is wrong. Such posts go viral because people love nothing more than jumping into such discussions.
Share Other Expert Knowledge
Obviously, if you are disagreeing with one expert, you are going to agree with another one. But, don’t just agree to enhance post visibility. Make sure that you really like the post of that expert and then share it. Follow the Google Panda Update about quality links and share the link to the post or the article on your website or blog and get better rankings. Make sure that you give proper citation or you may be flagged.
Join Fan Pages
Another way to increase blog traffic is to join fan pages that are so popular on Facebook. For example, if you have a sports blog, then join fan pages that talk about various sports products and recommend them on your website. Post an occasional comment on the fan page so that you are noticed. But, your comment should also be helpful. When you post comments, you can also give links that lead to your blog and other product reviews.
Just don’t get carried away with the links. Keep the ratio of 1:5, with one link for your site and 5 links for other authority sites.
Social Bookmarking helps generate traffic but setting up numerous bookmarking accounts is a tedious job and takes a lot of time. Instead, you can opt for automated bookmarking by registering on sites like SocialMarket and SocialPoster. Put the URL of your post on the designated fields on the website and your articles will be submitted to many social bookmarking sites.
