It’s every blogger’s dream to have one of their blog posts go viral. A viral blog post will bring tons of attention and credibility to any blogger, new or experienced. But not every blog post has the potential to go viral. Here are some tips that will help you write a viral blog post.
Create a tutorial. But not just any tutorial. Create a longer, in-depth, step-by-step tutorial post. You may even include photos or a video to help your post. Don’t assume your audience knows anything, make sure you include every step along the way, the more detailed the better.
Write a review post. Have you recently tried a popular product or service that’s relevant to your niche? Write a review or case study on it and watch it spread. Help your post along by emailing the company to let them know you are posting an in-depth review about them.Interview someone important. Choose a top influencer in your niche and interview them. Or, instead of one long interview, pick one question and ask more than one person in your industry. The more people that answer your question, the more chances you have of getting your post shared.
Write well. Every viral blog post contains a very necessary component: they are all well-written. Make sure that your headline is catchy and really entices people to want to click your link. Your intro should really hook your readers and make them want to continue reading your post.Add a quiz. Quizzes are a great way to engage your readers and create a viral blog post. Keep it short and make it fun, and people are much more likely to share it.
Include visuals. Visually appealing posts always have a greater chance of going viral on social media. Include an infographic or even a video with your viral blog post to really boost its share-ability.
Include a call to action. The best way to get people to share your blog post is to just ask! Include a clear call to action with your post. Do you want them to comment? Share your post? Sign up for your email list? Make sure you ask your readers to do so.
We all dream of creating the perfect viral blog post; one that will get shared and passed around over and over. Try any of these tips to enhance your chances of creating a post that people want to share.
