Many people will tell you that viral marketing is a super hard thing to do and that all just boils down to getting really lucky, but today I’m going to prove to you that that is not the case.
In this article, I’m going to show you three dead simple ways that you can use viral marketing to drive more traffic backlinks and sales to your sites.
I will be showing you how to do it. It doesn’t involve spending days making the perfect viral video or anything like that.
You don’t even have to make your own video, you don’t have to write an incredible piece of content and you definitely don’t have to rely on luck.
Now, I know that might sound too good to be true but just give me a few minutes and trust me I’m gonna change the way that you think about viral marketing.
Basically, what I’m going to show you in this article is to take advantage of content that’s already proven to go viral, so it’s not going to be a guessing game.
We’re not going to create content, and then just hope it goes viral. We’re going to be using content that’s already proven to be viral and then posting that to our sites.
But for this to work, you will need established social profiles built up. But they don’t have to have hundreds of thousands of followers.
You need at least a few thousand, though they have to be real followers.
They have to be niche related, but they can’t just be some fake fans that you bought off some sites.
Let’s just assume that you’ve already got social accounts on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+and Tumblr.
Now, what we’re going to do is create viral content, and then send it viral through these social profiles.
Here are three strategies of how this can be done.
Viral News Story
One is the viral news story, all that you have to do is find a viral news story that’s related to your niche.
Rewrite it, post it to your blog, post it out from your social profiles and boom, it goes viral.
To do this, just go to “news.google.com” and then do a search for your niche, so if I have a weight loss site and I want to find weight loss news stories, I just search for “weight loss”.
Then you want to go through the stories and find one that has an eye-catching headline but most importantly a ton of shares.
Most news sites will show you the number of shares that article has got.
Look for a story that got thousands of shares across the various social networks, then you simply rewrite this article posted to your blog, add images add a catching headline and then post it out on your social accounts.
This is what you have to do: Find a story on your niche on News Google, then rewrite this story yourself about it, add an eye-catching headline and eye-catching image, and then you post it to your site and then you post it out on your social accounts, this includes your Pinterest account, your Twitter account, your Facebook account, your Google+ account, and your Tumblr account.
That might sound like a lot but is not difficult to get followers if you learn how to do it. Your story can receive hundred visitors for a story that only took you 30 minutes or so to write.
Now obviously, the bigger your social accounts are, the more viral it will go.
Building up social accounts is so important, now it’s also interesting to note that this isn’t even anything that revolutionary.
If you look at most big news sites you often see they are posting the same story, just written differently because that’s what’s hot and viral at the moment.
You’d be amazed at how many times I’ve seen a video or story go viral on Reddit, and then an hour or two hours later it’s on the front page of Yahoo News.
This is how the big boys do it and there’s no reason you can’t do it.
Let’s say you’re too lazy to write an article, here’s what you can do with my strategy number two: the viral video.
When a lot of people think of viral video marketing, they often think of creating their own videos and spending all of this money and time into creating the perfect viral video, and then just crossing their fingers and hoping that people like it and that it goes viral.
A much easier way to leverage the power of viral video marketing is to just find other niche related videos that have already gone viral, and then post them to your blog, and then post them out on your social accounts.
Literally, all you have to do is search around on YouTube for your niche, and find videos with millions of views, or you can go to Reddit and find lots of natural latest videos that are going viral there too. Then just copy that youtube code, post it to your blog, add an image, add a description, and post that out.
Your story can attract a thousand visitors just by posting this out.
The last viral strategy number three: the infographic.
Even if you haven’t heard of the term infographic before, you’ve definitely seen an infographic before.
They’re just big images that are filled with lots of information about a certain topic.
The cool thing about infographics is that the people who create them don’t mind if you embed them into your own blog.
They actually want you to post their infographic to your site because they place a little link to their site at the bottom of the infographic.
It’s a win-win situation, you get the free content that you can use on your site and they get a little bit of promotion.
All you have to do is find a viral infographic to post on your blog and then post that out from your social accounts.
It really is that easy to attract viral traffic. Once you have big social accounts built up, which is why I’ve been spending so much time lately building up my social accounts and it’s why I’ve created so many articles on my blog about how to build up big social accounts.
On top of all of the free traffic that you actually get by posting out these viral articles, there’s an even bigger benefit, which is the SEO benefit of posting out this content.
If you don’t know what SEO is, it basically means that these viral marketing articles will help you to rank in Google.
If you’re completely new to SEO and getting ranked in Google and all that stuff you can research online but basically posting out these viral articles gets you so many social shares and backlinks to your site.
It’s incredible and it’s a lot faster and easier to do this way than by building all of the links yourself.
For example if I had a page on my site about printers where I was selling printers, and I really wanted it to rank for printers, I could add links to that page within these viral articles, so that when I get all of these backlinks and social shares to these viral articles, not only will it help that page, but it will pass on link juice to those pages that I really really want to rank.
If all of that stuff about SEO just went straight over your head, then you really need to start from the beginning with this big new system: BackLink Beast where you will learn how you get your sites to rank in Google and make money at the same time.

If you haven’t already checked out BackLink Beast, make sure that you do, because you’re not going to want to miss it, and it’s going to totally change the way that you do SEO.
