Being a celebrity is a dream for almost everyone. Going viral on social media is the best thing that can happen to anyone and get recognized is the one common thing in everyone’s wish list.
Going viral on social media has a lot of side effects. Sometimes, you may be recognized or known for a wrong cause. But as the saying goes, ‘There is no such thing as BAD publicity.’
Sometimes a person, news or a business idea go viral overnight. But how many of them stay for long. Going viral for a good cause, acquiring the right position and staying there is the most difficult and not an overnight task.
Here are some tips and ideas to go viral and be known for good.
1) Select your field of expertise:
The first and the foremost thing that a person should possess are clear views and a lot of confidence. Without knowing his strength and potential, achieving something in life is impossible. At the same time overdoing his potential and stressing himself for results won’t work. The balance between potential, hard work and practice will make the person successful.
By knowing your strength and potential, you will have a clear view on what your field is and what your interests are. Now the key is to improve your strength and widen your area of expertise continually.
2) It is not an overnight task:
Nothing comes overnight. The stories of an idea going viral, or a person becoming a celebrity overnight would have had numerous days and nights of silent hard work. Always work towards your goal and have a framed idea on what is important to you. Practice and patience are the key areas. Viral marketing for a small business idea or a deed helps people becoming famous, and there are also people who have tried and failed 1000 times.
Having patience, waiting for the opportunity, hard work and determination will make you reach heights.
3) Know your audience:
Always know your audience. Know what is essential and what is not. Be clear about what the world needs and what the current trend is. You can’t become famous or go viral for being one among 100. Know your targeted audience, decide on how to portray your talent or business and make sure you execute your idea.
4) Market yourself:
There is no one in this world better than you to market yourself. The way you carry yourself should speak about you. Shine on the internet, make yourself available on social media, positively advertise yourself, make people recognize you and in the long run make them follow you. To become viral, giving a hype about a situation, acting wisely in those situations and hitting your targeted audience are the key points.
Going viral on social media is not an easy task. But some activities may make it very easy for you. It is up to you to choose which path to take. Take the way of publicity that comes with shame and suffer or select the one that is slow but worth the wait and enjoy life.
