If you are a blogger, you know the importance of marketing your blog. And that social media is the ultimate in marketing tools. I know I spend hours a day on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Vine, Google +, Youtube…. you get my drift.
I love connecting with other bloggers and sharing their posts, too. It’s not all about “self” promotion. Or it shouldn’t be. In fact, I cannot stress to you enough the importance of making connections with your fellow bloggers.
Equally important is connecting with your followers and fans through your social media outlets. Don’t make it a one-way street by only posting your self-serving posts. Of course, you will do a lot of that, but you’ll find you’ll have a lot of reciprocation if you communicate with your followers, and especially if you share their posts, as well.
As a blogger or site/business owner, you want traffic to your site. Heck, it’s a dream of most bloggers to have posts go viral.
Speaking of viral… I want to share with you this awesome site — Viral Content Buzz.
As the name implies, you can generate a buzz on your content and it has the potential to go viral. It’s easy to set up an account, and you will want to do these 3 things as soon as you do:
- Activate your account by clicking the link which was sent to your email address;
- Enable your social media accounts to be able to share from them (Settings -> Social accounts)
- Share other people’s articles to earn credits!
Check out their FAQ page for everything you need to know about getting started. I highly recommend you join Viral Content Buzz, especially if you are a blogger. Because who couldn’t use some free social media promotion?
Oh, and right now they’re having their first sharing contest. Just join, add your high-quality article, and you can win $1,000.
I’m a little late to the game in announcing the contest since it ends July 12… but you still have time to join in. In fact, if you have a high-quality article, it can go viral and you have just as much of a chance of winning as anyone else does.
All you have to do to be entered is register an account on Viral Content Buzz and add your quality articles. That’s it.
Now I’m off to add an article or two myself.
Update: Viral Content Buzz is now ViralContentBee. New name, same great site.

I’ve never heard of this. Thanks for sharing!
You’re very welcome!
Sounds like a great way to get your content out there and winning this contest would a just as great!
Thanks for telling us about this one. I’ll be checking it out too.
It really is a great marketing tool to add, Corina. I know I wish I had got started earlier on the contest, but with the death in my family, vacation, etc., I just now was able to get around to it.
It sounds so similar to something I joined a couple years ago but promptly forgot about. It’s always nice to share each other’s work though. I love the idea!
I’m just starting to really use Viral Content Buzz, Liz, and I think it really is a great tool.
Oooh, heading over to check it out. Thanks for sharing!
I think you will be glad you did! 🙂 And you’re very welcome!

I’ll have to check this out when I get a chance.
