Choose the Right Social Media Platform
Gone are the days when social media was all about Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Although these sites are still the big boys, there are others, such as Snapchat and Tiktok that are taking the industry by storm.
You have tens of social media sites to choose from. It’s fine if you want to be on all of them, but when your goal is to go viral, it’s important to zero in on one or two sites.
Don’t just go with the site with the most users. Evaluate your style, content preferences, target audience, and then find the one that most suits you.
That being said, it’s hard to ignore the trends of the day. If you’re a GenZer, for instance, it’s not advisable to focus on Facebook or Twitter. These sites are popular with millennials and the older generations. You want a site that belongs to your tribe, which means TikTok and Snapchat are overwhelming favorites.
Create the Content That Will Propel You to Stardom
Behind every viral social media post is some great content.
Many a time, viral content isn’t planned. This is why you’ll often find that the posts that go viral have poor-quality photos and videos.
This, though, doesn’t mean you leave your desire to go viral to mere luck. It’s possible to create purposeful content that will go viral. Many people and brands have done it.
You just need to get down to work and figure out what kind of content to create. To be honest, there’s no formula for choosing the kind of content that can go viral.
However, depending on the social media site you chose, you’ll have some cues. For example, if TikTok is your preferred site, you automatically know that your content has to be a video.
Do plenty of brainstorming. Create multiple pieces of content. Be hilarious.
Pushing Your Content to the Top
Your content is ready for posting.
Now, some posts will naturally pick-up steam and spread like wildfire. Don’t worry if your post doesn’t evoke an extra-ordinary response right away. Find ways to heat it up and ensure it gets to more eyeballs.
You could share the link to the post on your other social media pages. Ask your friends to like and share it. It’s easy to get views on TikTok and other platforms, especially if you want to spend some money on getting likes and views.
Keep at it and soon enough you’ll go viral.
