Being a content marketer, I had struggled many times to attract the potential audience. I can understand the pain of not attracting the audience to the content that took almost 20 to 40 hours of efforts in writing. With years of experience, our team have analyzed, what type of content can get attention and what fails. So here we have listed the things that can be used next time you create a content.
So, how to make your content go viral?
This is a very important question and the answer is needed. With “VIRAL” I mean the content that is spread quickly or shared with a large number of audience. I am sure that many of you are trying to get the answer. By far, we have concluded few things that will help you to create a shareable content. Let’s start then:
Find out what people like about your niche topic in social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or any other content channels. Social channels let you find the live topics discussed among the real audience. Read some of those topics and think what type of posts you would like to share or comment. A content should include combination any of the below-mentioned perspectives :
2) Humor, Sadness
4) Latest Trends
7) Free downloads
8) How to and DIY things
9) Polls and Feedbacks
2. Catchy Headlines
8 out of 10 readers will skip reading your content if your headline is not enough to catch the attention. So without a doubt, a headline is the first thing to be taken care of while writing content. This will literally make or break your reader base. You can write headlines in a numbered format like:
Top Free Magento 2 Theme and Extensions For Your Magento Store
Or in a question format like:
Are You Looking for Free Magento 2 Extensions and Themes?
3. Invoking Emotions
Personally, I have felt that sometimes, I am energized with positive thoughts or posts on any social media channels. You can invoke emotions in your readers with any story that makes them happy or sad after reading your posts. It is very easy to write an informative post, but it takes a bit of creativity to infuse humor or sadness in your content. Our team at Solwin Infotech is skilled with such creativity, just call them and discuss your topic.
4. Be The First One To Announce The News
Talking about news, I would like to draw your attention regarding the latest news of Demonetization of 500 and 100 Notes in India. Yes, while I am writing this content, our PM has announced the ban on using these high currency notes. If you use Google news alerts or RSS feeds of any news channels, you will be the first one to pass on the news to local audiences who are unaware of the news. You can create a content using that news and implement your own opinions and views on that. This way you are catching attention first. You readers will gradually trust your blog as they got to know about something which was shared by you first. They will definitely share your content with their friends and family.
You can grab such hot topics to write. Creating viral content is quite a difficult task as it involves open ears and observations to the information and latest trends around you. But it is not impossible If you are a good writer. You can also approach us at Solwin Infotech for creating such viral contents. Our content writing services are very affordable.
Anyway, coming back to our strategies. Remember always, your content can also solve a particular question or problem. If a visitor finds a solution with your posts, he/she will definitely come back to your blog. If you or your team are skilled at solving any problems like any technical issues of Lenovo laptops or mobiles. Record a video and share it on YouTube.

It is necessary to stay in tune with what is going around. Read and follow other’s blogs and news around the internet. Participate in forums and groups to stay up-to-date with all the latest talks. You can interact, share your views on other’s posts.
6. Which Channel Works For You?
Once you start practicing, reading and participating in blogs and forums, you can analyze, which channel helps you to generate visitors. There are so many social channels like Scoopit, Blogs, Reddif, Facebook, Online magazines etc.. Publish your contents on these channels and check which media is bringing you more and more visitors. You can also do guest blogging and make your content viral. The traffic coming to that blog will be diverted to your post.

Free things are always the center of attraction. You can give your readers a link to a free resource which your readers can use it whenever they want. Like for example, A free PDF which can include some tips or tricks to make up for a party.
10. Use Images
You all are very well aware of this saying, “A picture speaks thousand words” Try using a MEME or high definition picture that relates to your content. I have found gif image has been used a lot in almost all contents and articles of 2017. Some stats or graphs like gold price visual might attract your visitors. Visually rich posts are awesome.
Warnings, trends, tips, and tricks are some type of information which can entice your readers. Just read and research on internet, magazines and you can share all those information. Like you can share an informational post regarding an IT FAIR or EXHIBITION about which you read in the newspaper last morning. Share your visit experience to any location, you have been recent.
So, these were few powerful tips to create viral content. However, not even the news channels or newspapers know, which news or content will be super-hit. So keep trying these things. You may fail several times but you will surely succeed at some point.
Happy writing 🙂
