There’s an assistant professor of marketing at the Wharton School of Business who specializes in discovering what makes ideas and products go viral. His name is Jonah Berger (follow him on Twitter here). Berger has also limned out the difficult problem of interpreting intentions in #hashtags, i.e. just how troubling it is to detect sarcasm, or other expressions using machine intelligence.
He’s been featured in many of the prestigious marketing research journals and publications like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Economist and more.
So, suffice it to say, when he talks or writes, I listen.
Most recently, Jonah Berger co-authored a research paper with Katy Milkman called “What Makes Online Content Go Viral?” and in it, there are insights that you absolutely can’t overlook. But one insight is simple: replicate what has already gone viral.
Hashtag Genius is a new, automated approach to generating sales and web traffic using social sharing of already proven viral content. Viral content is any piece of media that suddenly becomes an online sensation. You have almost certainly seen this happen — that indelible image or outrageous video that gets forwarded to you by a dozen friends in under an hour.
HashTag Genius works in 3 simple steps: #1 it curates the most viral posts from Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest
#2 it adds popular hashtags which get literally thousands of views
#3 it republishes these viral posts + hashtags combinations together with your link… on all social media sites!
The results are shocking : instant traffic boosts from 50 to 750 visitors a day, literally thousands of dollars in commissions and sales.
One thousand daily viral hits from Facebook with no cost
Yes, it’s that easy to create a powerful stream of truly viral, truly free traffic that converts.
