In light of the AfterEd TV Launch discussion
at our most recent seminar, I wanted to share two articles with everyone.
The first, "Six Strategies for Building Viral Content"
provides a framework for creating social media. The second article contains 37 viral marketing ideas
. The fact that the AfterEd team has already employed so many of these practices speaks volumes about their work.
My favorites are:
#2: Create a time spectacle: create content non-stop over a designated period of time (8hrs, 24hrs?).
#29: Show readers how to construct a cheap object that will prove useful to them.
#23: Predict what your niche will look like in 5, or 10, or 50 years.
#24: Create a list of feeds you believe everyone interested in your topic should be subscribed to.
