The Art of Going Viral

It’s part art and part money.

There are only two kinds of viral videos: for profit and not.

The waiter video wasn’t selling anything, so it’s easier for people to share.

To summarize, there are 5 steps to the art of going viral:

1 — Make good content (art and money)

2 — Be interesting, funny or tug those heartstrings (art)

3 — Have social proof (art and/or money)

4 — Fan the flames (money)

5 — Be lucky (good luck)
