For example, say you want to create an infographic about dog breeds. But aren’t sure what type of information would be most interesting or relevant for your audience. You could use social media listening tools like Sprout Social or Hootsuite Analytics to see what types of posts get the most engagement. Then make sure that whatever content you create is tailored specifically toward them!

Step 6: Identify trends and topics relevant to your target market.
Now that you’ve got your plan, it’s time to start planning for the execution. But before you dive into executing your strategy, there’s one more step: ensuring you are targeting the right audience.
This can be a tough process. Why? Because it requires understanding what people are talking about and what they’re interested in at any given moment. And unfortunately, that changes on a monthly basis. That’s why we recommend using social listening tools like BuzzSumo or Google Alerts. They help identify trends and topics that matter to your target market.
Step 7: Create shareable evergreen content.
Evergreen content is content that will remain relevant over time. It can be used in numerous ways, from creating a top-quality blog post to repurposing it into an infographic or video. Evergreen content is great for SEO as it’s likely to continue bringing traffic to your site long after the initial publication date. But what makes this type of content so appealing? Well…
You are now equipped with the knowledge of how to create a viral social media marketing strategy for your business. And we hope we’ve given you some inspiration too! But remember, there are no shortcuts. You can’t force people to share something—it’s got to be something that speaks to their audiences and resonates with them. So don’t get discouraged if your content doesn’t go crazy immediately. Just keep putting out great stuff and it will eventually catch on and hopefully bring lots of new customers.
