What if you are posting everyday to your blog and then sharing it on Facebook and tweeting out the post to your followers and no one is re-tweeting it or re-sharing it? Say you’ve 6000 followers, and if no one is re-tweeting or re-sharing, your post remains limited to only those 6000 people.
To make your post go viral, you need to get more Facebook shares and re-tweets. Only then, you will reach a wider audience and more and more people.
Sometimes, do you think why some posts by top bloggers get more re-tweets and re-shares than yours? That’s because they’ve thrown in some words into the headlines that can create the magic.
Well, magic is not the word. If you understand how human psychology works, you will understand people react to some words more than others.
So, what these words are to get more Facebook shares?
The infographic below shows the words that humans generally has emotions attached with and are more likely to share or tweet.
So, do you think you can really make your posts go viral with these words in your headlines?
A study by Matthew Lieberman says that people are attuned to those that they not only find useful and interesting for themselves but also to other people. Another German philosopher, Gistalt, also states that human minds love simplicity, so the more simple the marketing term is, the more they will likely be to adapt themselves with the topic.
So, crafting headlines that works is less about writing and more about understanding human psychology and science.
There is no magic, it’s all science. Understanding your readers and how their mind work is critically important for getting Facebook and re-tweets, which ultimately is the road to getting your content viral.
