Blogging Tactics To Help Encourage Viral Blog Posts

It’s what every blogger is looking for.
A blog post that wanders endlessly across the internet, gathering social shares and links powerful enough to send it to the front page of Google.
It’s not easy.
You need compelling, remarkably written content and intelligent social promotion.
If you are just getting started, and need some tips to help encourage viral blog posts, take a look at the following tactics.
Social Promotion Sites
There are a few sharing sites that make it a lot easier to get a whole bunch of tweets efficiently. Here are two of my favourites.
Triberr- A free service that allows you to join tribes of people ready to share your content. It takes a while to get started, but once you get going with this it really is amazing.
My posts receive a minimum of 10 tweets every time, and I have syndicated my blog’s feed with triberr, so this requires no maintenance.
You need to share other people’s content though, otherwise you will get kicked out of the tribes you are in.
I highly recommend trying this one out, stick at it for a couple of days and you will start receiving tweets to your content on autopilot.
Tribepro- This is free, but free users won’t get nearly as much value from this as paid users do.
It allows you to syndicate the content of other people’s blogs, and your own content with other users of tribepro.
Effectively, after you have been there on a while, you can instantly receive hundreds of tweets to your posts the second your posts go live.
I have seen a number of people using this to actually get thousands of tweets instantaneously to every blog post they write.
An extremely powerful tool!
Write a Killer Headline
Aside from social sharing sites, there is something much simpler that will guarantee your blog posts get more exposure.
Spend more time writing better headlines.
It is the first thing people see, on places like twitter, it is the only thing people see.
A viral blog post always has a killer headline; it’s just the way it works.
