Making Your Online Business Go Viral

Having something go viral in their business would be a dream come true for any online marketer.

There’s no question that this kind of marketing event would greatly increase your traffic, and hopefully sales, and it would put a shot into your business esteem. It’s not the easiest task in the world to purposely create and cause something to become viral on the net. Trying to predict the trends and “hot” topics and ideas of the internet is something that not even the most gifted psychic can do. It really seems that it’s a matter of luck trying to figure out where the masses will turn their attention. You can, though, implement particular techniques in your marketing that will improve the odds of producing something viral.

Here are some things you can do.

Put your work out there. Your created work is not enough. People must know of its existence. Submitting your work to social bookmarking sites is a great way to accomplish this. You can post your work to free services such as StumbleUpon, Digg and Reddit. People that are looking for the next “it” item are usually surfing these sites. It only takes a few of these internet users to click on your links in order for you to go from nonexistent to very popular. Make sure that you are easy to find. It will be impossible to go viral if people have to search for your work.

Don’t even bother using advertising for this. People can see that one coming from far away. You’ll almost never see anything like sales copy have a viral effect. True though, your product could become popular, but there are almost always other reasons for that.

Avoid pushing the product, but rather share something with others about your self. You won’t get much attention if people think it’s just a scheme to make sales – if you’re trying to become viral. And let your site, other marketing and advertising devices do the selling for you.

One of the cheaper tricks to getting your work to go viral is to pretend to be an idiot about something.

Of if you’d rather not, then simply say you’re clueless about it. It takes courage to admit to not knowing something, and there’s nothing wrong with asking for help. You will get far more comments on your work if you let your inherent idiocy on a topic be apparent to the people viewing or reading your work. Or, you can default to faking it and then say something totally off-base in your work. It’s not hard to see this being done all the time. But don’t forget this… you’ll have to live with this tactic if you do it. But we have to face facts in that it’s not easy making something assume a viral nature. The simple reason is that no one knows what will produce this effect. So as you know by now, it’s hard to do this on purpose. But you can always learn more, use any good tips you can find, and make the best content you know how to do.
