5 Simple Steps to Going Viral on Twitter

Going Viral!

Successful viral marketing on Twitter is not as simple as many assume, however, with the right guidelines and steps, it can be done and bring about a rewarding outcome!

Therefore, for today’s post, I will be sharing you 5 simple steps to going viral on Twitter:

1. Call on Action:

Don’t take retweeting, or lack of it, lightly. An RT is a way to show your Twitter friends and followers that you care about them and about the content they share with you. If retweeting is the action you wish your readers to take, the best way to persuade people to do it is to motivate them to by asking or offering incentives. When tweeps retweets your content, they’re very likely to also repost your call to action, lending it their credibility and influence.

However, make sure you do mix it up with other types of tweets now and then and do not spam your followers with ads! Continue reading »
