There must be an echo in the chamber, because three of my top clients have asked me this question, this week, so here’s your answer… The 5 BEST Ways to Generate Viral Content on Your Blog have way more to do with your subject matter and readers, than they do with how you write.
Put Together GREAT Lists.
In this crazy, malfunctional world of misconnections, the best ways to generate viral content on your blog include writing some incredibly great lists. Top Ten Lists ROCK!
We often call it “Writing a Matrix” and divide them by 10, 7, 5, or 3. But the key is to create a list of hot-topics and do that frequently. Like, for instance, today – my 5 Best Ways to Generate Viral Content for Your Blog is a key topic for lists. You write a list of the BEST ways to do anything, an you’ll find your sorry carcass, or at least your blog, on the front page of Google. And from there, you can blow up the net with Viral Content.
Are you putting together great lists? OR do you lack the energy to come up with such incredibly novice concepts? We have a few suggestions, of course. A consult with one of our key writers would benefit you greatly, if you can’t imagine where to get a list.
But here are a few suggestions:
- Write a list of your favorite list topics.
- Create a list of your ten favorite writers, and include their bios.
- Write a list of your five favorite books, include a review.
- Put together a list of your Best Published Articles.
- Generate a list of the BEST Viral Articles EVER written.
And now you have five lists to get started working on, before I even finished my blog post.
Offer Great Bullet Points in Your Content
No matter what you’re listing, make sure you include some powerful great bullet points in your lists, to capture your reader’s interest. They’ll appreciate the ease and flow of glancing down the list of bullet points to know if this is a topic they need to read or not.
Use your BEST Ways to Generate content when you pull out the bulleted sub-headers. You really do want your bullets to magnetically attract your readers!
Those bullets do matter, use them strategically when you plan your blog posts.
Give your best effort in attraction mode.
Using keywords that matter, include some attractive methods of finding and applying your content, without making your readers actually READ everything you write. The majority of readers, don’t read… So give theme value before they read. Reading should actually gain them more value, something to entice them to actually read what you wrote.
Value driven content is the best traffic generation method.
The more value your content includes, the more traffic it will generate. Regardless of the overall message, the content should offer your reader something of value inside the bullet points, and increased value by reading. I’ve learned that smaller paragraphs help readers to follow better, but more importantly… White space allows them to consume what you write because there’s space for the eyes to rest and the brain to remember.
Use both content and white space.
Randomly, Check Out What is Trending in Your Niche
95% of all bloggers are writing about the same topics. It’s just a thing. Don’t get bent out of shape over it, but do balance your evergreen content with some trending current events to captivate your own audience and show off what you can do. Be sure to write in such a manner that even something trending today will offer value in the next several months at least.
Trending topics often last a while.
Write about what’s trending, but focus on how trending topics make a difference in your industry. What will change in your industry due to the trending topics.
A recent event shifted the dynamic of what is trending and discussed in the world of art. As an artist, specifically a graphic artist, I see this topic bringing computer generated art into the mainstream for futuristic art, including formal portrait painting. One local artist uses computer generated art in almost all of her portraits as a photographer. While I hadn’t thought of using computer generated art as part of a portrait painting, the concept is evidently gaining popularity.
Writing about computer generated art, in a whole where art isn’t necessarily computer generated, and definitely not leaning toward graphic design, may be a whole new method of preserving portraits.
It’s definitely something to consider.
Be the Authority, Expert, and Certified Genius in Your Field
There’s definitely something to be said about being the BEST in your chosen niche. When you achieve that simple standard of authority, expert, or certified genius in your field, the key to being who you are is filling up those shoes.
You fill them up because the space belongs to you. You own it. And because you own it, you get to do with it whatever you choose.
