++ Breaking News ++

According to (and re-posted by one of my mentors, you get more traffic with viral blog posts.

What makes a good viral blog post? According to Max at you should try one of these formulas:
  • Humor + Image
  • Controversy
  • Breaking news
  • Info + Lists
  • Funny Cats
  • Cool Trick + Video
  • Fun Game
  • Outrageous Claims
  • Ron Paul
Oooooookay, not sure about Ron Paul, but if you think about any blog post (or email for that matter) that nearly everyone knows about, chances are it uses this formula.

How can you use this as a marketing tool for your business?
We'll explore this every Wednesday over the next month.
