So you want to go viral. It’s a simple formula, really…clicks + plays + shares = viral. Under most circumstances you need all three parts of this equations to get that “viral status”.
Let’s break down this into 5 ways to make your “hopeful” post, become a viral post.
1 - Attributes
Cater to your audience’s personal attributes. Age, location, interests. Using the knowledge you have of your ideal audiences age and their interests can get you further than not.
2 - Tribes
A tribe, you say? Think of a “tribe” as a niche group. Making your post extremely relatable gives your audience a sense of belonging and is more beneficial than having a broad appeal.
3 - Insights and Humble brags
Giving your audience a look into yourself, in a humble way, creates a relative experience for your audience.

Giving your audience an overwhelming sense of emotion through music, dance, tricks, etc are sure to make your audience “share”.

Audiences tend to enjoy “taking part for a bigger cause”. Giving your target audience something to do gives them instant gratification.
In conclusion, always ask yourself the following:
- How can we make our idea clickable, playable, and shareable?
- How can we encourage our audience to share?
- How can we build a story to capitalize on success?
The progression of online interaction is ever-changing. Reaching a large audience to go viral is always a challenge, but with the proper approach, you’ve got a shot!
