This week I moderated another Social Media Today webinar as part of their Best Thinker webinar series, this time on the topic of Storytelling Gone Wild: The Key to Creating Viral Content. This webinar featured James Hilliard (@hillyprods) President & Executive Webcast Producer for Hilly Productions, Bree Baich (@BreeBaich) Transmedia Mastermind "The Storyteller"for SAS Institute and Jamie Turner (@AskJamieTurner) CEO of SIXTY. This webinar was sponsored by Citrix GoToWebinar. We discussed how to make your storytelling more viral by connecting with emotion.
Here are three key takeaways from the webinar:
- What is viral content? - Anything that is liked by thousands and shared by millions
- Connect with Emotion - This is the key to being memorable and getting that story to go viral!
- Know your Audience - everyone loves kittens and puppies but you would never leverage them if your audience was B2B Execs!
