Viral Marketing: The elusive yet possible

Pretty Happy!

Pretty Happy!

I have been in business for a good 4 – 5 years now (4 years full time) and for the last 12 – 18 months I have been going hard with Facebook. It’s been a tough one for a while, yet I finally cracked my approach and it’s awesome.

What it has come down to ultimately is producing so much video content, everyday, making it as interesting and helpful as possible – getting people as fans and then having the shares come in. For quite a while, I really did feel like I was hitting my head against a brick wall – however, the results started coming in.

Slowly, slowly, slowly – people would start sharing content and before I knew it, it has really built up into an impressive gathering which I am really excited and proud of. Basically, about 1 in 6 of my posts right now are going viral. My definition of viral – being shared at least 5 times.

Some have been shared hundreds of times. If I am trying to answer the question, ‘Edward how do I create a viral post?’ the answer is this:

Pump out as many posts as possible which are awesome. Do at least 5 a day. Then as you get better, content will start going viral.

This has happened to me and even I did get a bit lucky, I have had 1.6 million people see my posts in the last 7 days! Very awesome and proud of that.
