How Do You Make A Facebook Post Go Viral?

13 replies
Has anybody here succeeded at creating a viral Facebook post? And if so, what was the formula you used to achieve those results? I just started promoting my website on Facebook and it seems to be delivering quality traffic. But I need a lot more traffic than what I'm receiving. Any advice would greatly appreciated.

    Paying to boost a post can sometimes make it go viral, but I've found the posts that usually do best are the ones that go viral on their own...If you have a highly-engaged page with 5K or more members and you feed them the right content, it'll take on a life of its own and you won't have to pay to boost it.

      Getting a post viral is largely luck. You can be sure to be lucky if you try all the time!

    There are only 2 ingredients how to become your post viral...
    1. traffic
    2. engaging

    If you're going to refer people to your signature this is what they'll see.

      Don't make it a blog post: links are MUCH less likely to go viral. Even the great Viral Nova can barely get any of its posts more than 1,000 shares.

      Instead, make it a FB post. So, upload the pic - don't put it in a link. Upload a video, do not link to one. Upload a meme, do not link to one.

    If you need to make your posts viral then try to post some interesting and innovative content and also try to have high traffic in your account if you have all these means then surely you can have a viral post.

    Most recently I think this involves posting a video of yourself
    beneath a bucket of ice-cold water.

    I think it's really a matter of chance and luck. It's really hard
    to say what will be viral and what will not even when they
    involve cool kittens and dancing babies.

    Depends on a few things,

    Say something like, 'Tag someone who loves huskies!" with a funny husky video or something. ALso run $10-$20 paid targeting with husky related interests. Just an example.

      You would need a video kind of like the one in the image below. I actually linked directly to a clickbank product and had one Sale that paid an $18 commission. Next time I'll drive them to a capture page. Well, anyway...I profited on this campaign and only ran it for a day or two. It was a sponsored post, and had the targeting really focused. Use it as a template if you can or excuse my self promotion...but the link in my signature has free training on this too.
