So how do we put viral content generation on auto-pilot?
The answer is shockingly simple:
• Pay attention to the analytics
• Deliver more of what your audience wants
• Stop generating content about anything that doesn’t get a reaction
It’s almost too simple. People don’t want to listen to this advice because it seems reductive.
But the reason viral content is so hard for people to create is because it requires a certain authentic simplicity. Value, meaningful problem solving, personalized for YOU. That’s the equation.
We already know viral content prompting with ChatGPT is NOT just prompting, re-prompting, and then posting. You have to be a nuanced creator and customize all your content after generation.
The same is true for designing your long term content strategy.
At the end of every week, spend some time on Twitter Analytics and observe what content created the most discussion among your audience.
You can look at likes and followers — absolutely. Those are the metrics that are immediately obvious.
But what most people overlook is the ability to start meaningful discourse in the online community.
This is extremely important for you to master if you want to go viral. You have to get people talking to each other about your ideas and stay top of mind for them.
So while you can repeat content topics that get you new followers, always prioritize ideas that seem to rouse the crowd. This is what you want to spend the most time prompting ChatGPT for.
This basic principle ensures you never run out of ideas or raw data to feed AI as it generates viral content for you.
Pull from the reactions you achieve with your content and keep telling the people what they want to hear.
As ChatGPT becomes more familiar with your writing style and voice, your prompts will become more effective and your audience will recognize you for helping them on a consistent basis.
Just like that, you’re an authority figure with published ideas that aren’t just viral on the internet.
They’re viral within the very minds of your target audience.
