3. Viral Blogging- Content Marketing Strategy #3
Viral blogging is a badass content marketing strategy. It literally takes 5 mins a day to do, and will increase your traffic like crazy. Basically, instead of sharing videos/blog posts on your social networks, you post them on your blog. If you’re one of those kind of people that shares stuff on your social networks all the time, this is definitely for you. For me, I do a lot of research on current topics and news. If there is a video or post that I like, I usually share it to my Facebook page, my Twitter, Google + and sometimes send it to my email list. Instead of giving that person the traffic, just post it on your blog instead. Then post it to your social networks and email list, and let the traffic come rolling in.
Think about it like this, there are only a certain number of people on the internet that like to read your badass business content. If you start posting current events and news that people are interested in, you will get way more traffic because more people are interested in that kind of content. You aren’t leaving anything on the table, because you’re targeting all of the billions of people who are online instead of the maybe couple million that are involved in our niche.
It may not be as targeted, but it’s still traffic, and some of them will convert to leads and sales. Especially if you have an Empower Network blog, because all the high converting banners are all tracked to your affiliate account. We all this is a numbers game, get as many people as possible to your presentation and a certain percentage will buy and take action. You might be wondering why the heck anyone would click on your banners if they aren’t already involved with online marketing. Be response to that would be, Who isn’t interested in making more money? (plus you earn 100% commissions, so all that money goes back to you)
Can Viral Blogging actually get you Traffic?
Think about it like this, if a video on Youtube is getting millions of views, there is traffic to be had there. It’s obviously a popular video. Just embed that video into your blog post and capitalize on all of that traffic. Then people will be sharing your blog post instead of that person’s video. That’s why we call it Viral Blogging, because you can get your blog post to go viral instead of sending all that traffic straight to the Youtube video. You are, in a sense, stealing some of their traffic. The thing is, people love when you share their videos on your blog, because that leads to more exposure for them. You just get to advertise to all these people for free while they are checking out the content on your page. Get it?
Here’s what I do. I go to DrudgeReport.com, Infowars.com, NaturalNews.com, Youtube, or whatever site I feel like visiting (I just like to visit those sites a lot). I look for badass, entertaining, killer content that interests the hell out of me. I copy the whole article, and paste it into my blog post. It’s that simple! Of course I leave all the same links and don’t modify the article at all. I leave the link back to their article, so they get more traffic and I capitalize on some of their traffic. It’s a win-win. They love the traffic and backlinks and I love the sales. You can do the same thing with youtube videos, just go to ‘share’ underneath your video, and get the embed code. Then just upload it to the HTML version of your blog. It takes probably 5 mins a day, and this shit works…Trust me.
