I get this question all the time in DM’s. Whats the key to going viral? Instead of replying to everyone I decided to just write article for anyone who is interested in this subject.
Before I expose the keys to going viral, we need to know what viral means.
Viral derives from word virus meaning infection that replicates itself and multiplies. It’s usually considered bad but in the internet word viral is great.
Viral images, videos, advertisement, etc., that is circulated rapidly on the internet.
Going Viral is Organic
True viral content isn’t made with intentions to go viral, it happens naturally. You can’t force viral unless your a big company like Nike, Coca-Cola or brand alike who has big following and large advertising budget that can pay for push.
To make stuff go viral it has to be something people want to see and something people want to share. Sharing is what really makes your content go viral.
There are many levels on the viral scale you can have one share or millions of shares either way both went viral one just had a higher virality rate.
Virality– is # of people multiplied by # of shares will = your virality rate.

The R stands for Rare! How rare is that content you post? One of the mistakes I see people do on social media is copy that is death for your brand don’t imitate innovate.
The I stands for Inimitable! Are you posting content that good and unusual almost impossible to copy?
The N stands for Non Substitutable! Your post should be created in a way nobody will be able to use with out your brand image copyrighted.
Next time your posting analyze your VRIN Score how Valuable on scale 1-10, Rare on scale 1-10 so on and so forth.
A 10 is like no one has ever posted this, 1 is like millions have posted that photo.
