How to get your crowdfunding blog post to go viral

This is a sponsored post

If you have a crowdfunding page, then one way to get people to notice it more is to create a blog around it too. This can really boost the people who sign up and donate, and if it goes viral, then you could smash your target much more quickly than you ever thought possible. How can you get your crowdfunding blog to go viral though? Here are some ways to get started.

Make It Good

Perhaps it goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that writing a good blog post is one of the essential ingredients in making it go viral. A boring blog post without any relevant information won’t be shared, and it’s the sharing that’s important if you want something to go viral. It doesn’t matter what is behind your blog, what the reason is for having written it, as long as it’s good then it has a much better chance of going viral, which gives your crowdfunding project a much better chance of succeeding. 

Make Your Readers Feel Good

If you can leave your readers feeling good about themselves, you, and your project, then you are more likely to see shares. We want our social media pages to be full of interesting things, things that not only will we like to look back on and enjoy, but that we think others will like too. Writing a post that makes the reader feel good will push them to share it – they want their friends and family to feel good too.

Go Social

If you blog directly onto Facebook, for example, it’s even easier for your followers to share your content. It’s already there for them; they just have to click one button and it’s done. With a traditional blog post, there are additional steps involved, and although they’re not too arduous, in today’s society it’s often the quicker and easier the better when it comes to viral content. You can even advertise with Facebook, depending on your budget, and get an even larger reach.

Keep It Secure

If you want to be taken seriously as a business looking for funding, you need to start as you mean to go on. That means making sure that your site, your company, and anything associated with you online is completely secure. You can’t afford to lose people’s data, particularly when it comes to money. Whichever platform you are using for your crowdfunding, it will be useful for you to carry out some background research to make sure they’ve never had to use any digital forensics services after a cyberattack.

Don’t Be Scared

Don’t be scared to do this. If you want your crowdfunding project to be successful, you may have to step outside of your comfort zone for a while, and put yourself out there. Once the hard work is done, and the blog is set up and written, and the marketing has taken place so that it – hopefully – goes viral, then you can relax and be pleased about how well everything is going. It will all be totally worth it in the end.
