All businesses and writing services want each article they produce to go viral because it means it struck a cord with the target market and, therefore, drove a significant amount of traffic to the article.

While it’s unlikely that every article you post as part of your marketing program will go viral, there are some things you can do to increase the odds of them achieving elevated popularity.

Know the Market

Spend some time researching the types of things your target market happens to be curious about right now. Social media sites and discussion boards are great places to learn what people are interested in. Once you have thoroughly researched, you need to start thinking about how to write an article that will cover the topic in a unique way. If you can’t think of a way to make the article interesting, work with a content writing company.

Come Up with a One of a Kind Title

When writing articles, most people treat the title as an afterthought; something they tack on just before they post the article. Doing this could cost you readers. The average person uses only the titles to decide if he or she wants to bother reading the rest of the article. The title should be unique, include at least one of the keywords used in the article and hint at the general tone of the article.

Spread the Word

If you don’t already have a Twitter or Facebook account, you need to create one right now. You will be able to use these sites to pass on the link that leads directly to your article, but make sure the link works properly. And don’t forget to tell your friends, family and fans to retweet and share the link.

You shouldn’t expect your freshly posted article to go viral right away; it’s going to take some time for your friends and followers to pass the information on to the people they know. While you wait, start brainstorming about what you want to write next.
