6 Qualities of Content That Gets Socially Shared and Goes Viral

Originally posted on Empire Avenue:

Who doesn’t like shares and retweets? They’re addictive, they spread the word about your brand or website and they’re free promotion. But unfortunately, they aren’t very easy to get, especially given how crowded and noisy the web has become. Even as you read this, hundreds of posts are being published and thousands of updates are being posted on your favorite social media channels and you are probably going to miss out on most of them (that doesn’t mean you should close this and go back to your social streams).

The point I am trying to make is that getting your content promoted on social media has gotten tougher, especially the free aspect of it.

You’ve likely done this yourself: You visit a website, add a few products to your shopping cart and then get sidetracked by an email, a phone call or a meeting. Next thing you know, you’ve completely forgotten about your potential purchase.

Even when you were so close to making a purchase, you completely lost interest in the website and may have ended up making the purchase elsewhere or completing some other type of conversion.

A major challenge for online business owners and marketers is holding the attention of consumers until they’ve made a conversion.

One way of re-engaging your recent web visitors, existing customers, subscribers of your email list, mobile app users and other individuals who have interacted with your organization in some capacity is through retargeting.

Originally posted on DES Daughter Network:

What is wrong with mammography? Are safer methods of breast cancer screening becoming available?

  • High rate of false negatives
  • Estrogen distorts breast x-rays
