Seek Opportunities

Once you have shortlisted the trending topics, it’s show time. You have to take this as an opportunity to create a unique and amazing piece of content.

An article that is more capable of going viral than the news itself. That is where the role of creative writers comes in.

Because duplicating the same piece of information in simple words won’t attract or excite the audience.

You would have to give your article some unique element that makes it stand out. This can only happen if you address the following:

  • Recognize and fill the gap that the existing content isn’t
  • Learn about the interest of your audience
  • See what your competitors are talking about
  • What type of content will earn you links

Addressing these things will aid you in coming up with a content that is capable enough of going viral.

Is it ‘Share-Worthy?’

Once you have discovered the interest of your audience and have identified the gaps that exist, it is your turn to come up with shareable content. Not only shareable but linkable too.

To increase web traffic and attract celebrated websites for linking purposes, pay keen attention to the following:

Format

You should know what is it that will engage your audience. Whether it will be an infographic or a blog. You decide and create the content accordingly.

Delivery

Make sure that the message that you deliver is straight-forward and to the point. Because the quicker the audience will consume the information, the faster will they share it with their peers.

Audience

Expand your audience.

Graphics/Visuals

Graphics/Animations/Visualisation are a much better idea than words. In fact, according to researches, the visual content continues to dominate the digital space. Images, animated graphic and videos tend to attract more people and increase the engagement of the audience.

Repurpose

Once you have developed the content, it is time to share it with people. But the question is that what platforms will you share it on? You cannot just go about sharing your content wherever and whenever you please.

Develop a strategy to circulate and syndicate your content. Simply sharing your content on Facebook won’t do you much good. Think and act beyond it. Some of the ideas to make your content more likable by the social media community are:

  • Make video slides rather than written content.
  • Take Facebook Live as an opportunity to promote your content.
  • Connect with influencers.
  • Run ad campaigns on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Reach the target audience through emails

But make sure that you do not annoy your audience. There is a thin line between annoying and reaching out. You need to make sure you remain within the boundary of outreach.

Hopefully, these tips will help you in coming up with content that is link worthy. One thing that you should remember is that optimization is also very important.
