This Little-Known Viral Formula Landed Me 130,800 Shares (On A Single Article)

We all want to go viral, right?

Isn’t that the dream?

After all, a viral article can sling-shot your blog, business or writing career out of orbit and into the stars. 

But most people think creating a viral article is a matter of luck. And what I’ve learned when it comes to virality is that you make your own luck. 

We've CRACKED the code on viral articles - and it's far simpler than you might think.

I've spruced up this blog! I know it's not high season but if you're visiting Pembrokeshire this will give you a glimpse into what it's like and ideas on what to do. #pembrokeshire
Way down west into the depths of Wales and just across the water from Ireland, you will find Pembrokeshire. It’s made up of over six hundred miles of stunning coast…

In 2013 I volunteered at Womex Cardiff. It was a brilliant experience. I learnt so much about how music can change the World. A grand but true statement! Womex 2015 is fast approaching - in Budapest, Hungary this year. To give you a taste of what it's all about here's my article from 2013. It focuses on the discussions that took place in the networking rooms. #Womex   #worldmusic

It was a good one to share even though it makes my head spin just looking at it! I'm good, business is very slow though. Looking for an extra job to help pay the bills but I will persevere with with the copywriting, I do enjoy it :)

Story
Tagline
Freelance copywriter based in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. I write and help with marketing for all types of businesses from the sole trader to larger creative companies. Get in touch if you need some help. I'll look forward to hearing your ideas.
Introduction

Raised in a small touristy town in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, I spent much of my early years helping out in the family catering business and guest house. I would have much preferred to be hanging out at the beach, raving and ogling at surfers but without realising I picked up invaluable skills and got to know what makes a business successful. I also got accustomed to talking with people from all walks of life. I enjoyed hearing everyone's stories (I still do). I picked up many useful skills in this time. 

I studied business at college, and had a short stint at uni before returning back to Pembs. But jobs, especially creative ones were hard to come by. So in my 20's (in 2005) after I could no longer bare to answer another call in my call-centre job and say the same thing that I had said about 50 times that day, I quit and caught the train to London. I was in pursuit of a creative role in writing, advertising or on a magazine. 

London. I got on the temping trial and worked across the zones in a variety of jobs. I sold books at RIBA, processed returns at Burberry, and sifted through hundreds of job applications at a recruitment company. After 3 years I landed a nice role in a small publishing and events company and stayed until I left London a few years later. It was here I gained a good grounding in marketing and writing. I created and managed many successful marketing campaigns for a variety of magazines and events. I also developed an interest in photography, jazz, walking and enjoyed all that London had to offer (too much to list here!). 

Today. So armed with the knowledge I absorbed through working in all manner of businesses from the small sole trader to the large multinational, and with a desire to create and help businesses thrive, I am a now a freelance copywriter. 

I write for publications: travel pieces, music blogs and event reviews.

For businesses I write SEO optimised website content, online articles, business blogs, email promotions, newsletters and print marketing. 

Promotion plans and marketing campaigns: I'll work with you to plan and create some attractive and competitive campaigns to help draw in new business and increase sales. 

For more on my service visit vanessawmarketing.co.uk. Call 07767 410718 or email vwilliamswales@gmail.com for a chat. I'll look forward to hearing your ideas.
