Viral posts allow you to reach an audience that you couldn’t reach organically.
For a post to go viral, it means it would increase your brand’s visibility and exposure.
Let’s be honest here, going viral is what most brands, if not all, want during their lifetime. Although not all are quite sure how it’s done.
One way would probably be to keep writing hundreds of posts in hopes that at least one of them will take off some day.
Or, instead you could follow some of the tips we provide below.
Ways to Make Your recipe go Viral
Keep it simple
In a world where there is an abundance of information, keeping it simple and to the point is a must. This is especially important if you’re going to create a recipe video. Don’t make your videos 10 minutes long, with a 9 minute intro to the recipe. Okay this is an exaggeration, but you get the point.
Get straight into the recipe. People really don’t have a lot of time to waste.
Create something new
More often than not, many of the viral recipes we see online are innovative. This is what makes them stand out from ‘regular’ recipes, and grab people’s attention, no matter how ridiculous they might sound.
If you’re not really into creating new recipes, you can always try combining several popular foods into one. It could be something like “Cinnamon roll french toast” or “Cheeseburger onion rings”. The choices are endless!
Create beautiful images
It’s a good idea to spend time on improving your photography skills. When it comes to recipes, they’re nothing without photos, especially quality photos. In fact, I’m sure you’ll agree, recipes without photos seem unreliable.
Good, high quality photographs are what grab people’s attention very easily, and they are what’s going to make them share your recipe, and increase the chances of it getting noticed by news outlets who’ll eventually decide to share it!
One of the most important things that you’d want to do when sharing a recipe, or even a regular blog post, it’s to encourage people to engage with it. Whether it’s sharing the post or talking about it, or even making the recipe. All
Lastly, share your recipe wherever you can! Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, even make a short video and post it on YouTube. Do whatever you can to get it out there.
