The Sweet Science Of Virality: You Are Bad At It

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You are bad at Facebook. We are less bad at it than you. Also, the vast majority of your audience is probably on Facebook. (Unless you are Pinterest, but they are on Facebook too. Just sayin'.) You are probably not good at the sweet science of internet virality, that special concoction of optimization, finding or creating quality content, and then maximizing it's potential. We will teach you all our secrets to optimizing social media to drag traffic kicking and screaming back to your site.
Headlines, share images, vague descriptions, good content, and smart testing are a start. There is a science to virality. It's not as haphazard as you think.
So ALL ABOARD the interwebs science train!
