What's The Secret Recipe for Viral Content Marketing Success?

What's The Secret Recipe for Viral Content Marketing Success? | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it
We know that content marketing is one of the best ways to engage with audiences and potential customers online. But what happens when a business has tried content marketing and has seen few returns?

 

"What if you don’t have years; don’t have the time, energy, or budgets to create compelling content on a regular basis; or simply need to build an audience fast? The answer is this: you must create something viral; content that can spread in a way that creates massive attention. Content that will boost you above the writhing masses, and make others take notice."

What if you don't have years? The heck with that, what if you don't have any appreciable time at all. If your like most small businesses you need a steady stream of action and growth yesterday, the luxury of waiting for results doesn't exist for you.


Kelsey Libert lays out one of the best explanations of how content marketing may go viral, and how emotions may be the determining factor of viral success.


Libert deftly winds us through the maze of viral content marketing but beware this is not a walk through the park where you'll learn and understand everything in 5 minutes. Stick with it and you'll find lots of gems.


Step 1: Understanding the truth about your competition


Step 2: Engagement is good, but viral is better


Step 3: Understanding what it means to “go viral"


Step 4: Creating content with a viral coefficient above 1


Step 5: Decreasing viral cycle time


Step 6: The limitations of virality and the importance of audience.


Step 7: Considerations for fractal virality


Take this with you: Be Willing To Fail

5 Tips To Improve Your Social Influence Beyond Your Klout

5 Tips To Improve Your Social Influence Beyond Your Klout | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

The last time I used the phrase "social influence" in a face-to-face conversation at a business luncheon for small businesses, one of the owners sighed:

 

"Another buzzword they want to stick down on our throats."

 

"Well," I told her, "you know online marketing? PR? Elevator pitch? ROI? Sustainability? They are all buzzwords. Because like it or not, they are part of our business success."

 

But she's made me think: buzzwords have a negative baggage. Are you really aware what social influence is? Why is it important and how can you use it to your advantage? Let me share some quick tips with you how to turn it to your advantage...

The Great Twitter Automation Debate

The Great Twitter Automation Debate | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

More Than One Way To Communicate

 

Of course, communication can take many forms. For example, you can reply to emails when you have time, rather than chain yourself to a device to reply to every one when it arrives.

 

In that vein, Gray compares Stratten’s insistence about using Twitter primarily for real-time communication to be “like saying all conversations should be on the phone.” He further points out that email or letters (what he calls asynchronous communication) are valid forms of communication.

Tips for Starting a New Facebook Fan Page

Tips for Starting a New Facebook Fan Page | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

One of the things many people struggle with in social media are identity issues, and I am no different. Up until yesterday, my main Facebook entities included my personal profile and my fan page for Kikolani. While I love both of these, I found some problems with sharing links to posts I’ve done elsewhere. Specifically…

 

- Links I’ve posted to my personal profile lately haven’t gotten that much attention compared to plain status updates or photos.
- The fan page for this blog is focused on posts from this blog only. Fans didn’t sign up for posts from elsewhere.


So the solution was creating a new Facebook page. This page is specifically focused on my freelance writing and blogging as a whole so it can be a platform where I can share links to anything I have written anywhere...

Are you looking to take your Facebook page to the next level, but aren’t sure how to go about it? This article will provide four proven steps to Facebook success.

 

An interesting thing happened the other day that grabbed my attention. Three different clients emailed me with a link to a recent article. All three wrote some version of “Check out this case study. Can you make this happen for my Facebook page too?”

 

The title of the article was enough to hook anyone: Facebook Case Study: From 517 to 33,000 fans in two weeks (plus media coverage).

After reading the impressive case study and looking at countless other Facebook page success stories, I instantly noticed a common thread throughout these pages...
