Thanks to whoishostingthis team who designed this infographic - 5 Reasons Your Awesome Content Isn't Going Viral - that helps internet marketers review their content strategies against their formula for success.
Key Qualities of viral content:
Emotion is the key reason why things "catch on". Appealing to certain emotions will make content potentially more viral than others.
So how to make your content more emotionally charged?
Get the reader to question themselves. Use your headline to grab their attention and get them thinking. Always come up with a different angle. Present a different spin on the same old topic that readers see over and over again.
Content timing is crucial to whether or not it goes viral. Find the right days and times when your content is most-in demand.
Distribution can give your piece the nudge it need to get rolling. Think about your distribution channels.
Do you have any influential connection to start with? Influential connections can help give the piece exposure it may not have otherwise gotten on its own.
