you a ton of money in a very short amount of time. When your

doing anything. Of course, the content has be great in order
for it to go viral. Here are 4 tips to remember when trying
to go viral.

The first tip to remember when trying to go viral is to
always consider your audience. Who is it that you are
looking to capture with your content? This should be the
same people you’re looking to get as customers. Make your
content with this in mind.

using humor that mostly teenagers would find funny. However,
you could try to sell MP3 players with a video that’s
slightly vulgar and would appeal to teenager’s sense of
Shock the Audience
The next great tip to remember when trying to go viral is to
try to shock the audience. This simply means that you want
to get a major reaction out of your audience. You want to
impress them or humor them or even anger them. Do something
that will move them to pass along your content.
Think like a Viral Marketer
Thinking like a viral marketer is the third of the 4 tips to
remember when trying to go viral. Start getting in the habit
of constantly trying to come-up with great topics for viral
content. The more you program yourself to think like a viral
marketer the easier it will be to come-up with great ideas.
In fact, you’ll find that you come-up with ideas throughout
your everyday life.
The last of the 4 tips to remember when trying to go viral
is to always network. In order to get your content started
toward going viral you need to get people to look at it
first and then pass it on. It’s obviously much easier to get
something to go viral if you get 1000 people to look at it
initially. So, always network and form a great bond with
people so they can help your content go viral.

the audience, to shock the audience, to think like a viral
marketer, and to always network. If you follow these 4 tips
