    A nice choice to choose from. Oddly enough, the videos don’t work for me at all, but the lists definitely do!!

      Videos, in my opinion, are very hit and miss unless you target a) a really untapped market or b) a market that just can’t get enough of something.

      A few years ago i produced a quick video on Pokemon (yes, Pokemon) and that video received about 70 viewers per day, which to me seems fairly high. Other videos, though, have failed miserably. In any case, that shows the potential if we could only find that perfect formula.

    I think the infographic angle has the toughest learning curve on this list. I also think that this title used to belong to videos. Once you get over hearing your voice, though, Youtube is excellent! Its search engine technology alone warrants its own conversation.

    When it comes to creating memes for traffic, what’s your preference for branding the meme you create?

    That is, of course, if you do brand them.

    Lists have to be my favorite, and I say that because its the easiest body of written work to construct – I think. It helps the writer present plenty of white space making it easier on the reader. A good list opens up the door to tons of traffic. People are curious, and in a way they want to critique your list. I guess for the emotional element.

      You’re right on about lists. I remember back in 2007 when I started with sites like eHow.com (they had this awesome revenue sharing program). Writing how-to pieces was very fun, but then “listicles” came along and took over the freelance writing world.

      As you said, there’s a certain factor that makes people engage, especially when you make personal lists. If you go to YouTube, for example, and see videos on “My Top PlayStation Games of All Time” you will immediately see people replying with their own lists as well – and many disagreeing with yours, lol.

      – I wonder what’s next.

    I’m just wondering, are human beings naturally drawn to “thriller” stuff. If the top 50 lists included, “Cheetahs Caught an Antelope and did the Unthinkable” the words should be adrenalin oriented. In fact, I know a book has sold over a eight hundred copies in two weeks and the title is, “Tricky 22” it is a murder investigation book. So, yes… titles have to do the trick.

      I believe in the end it all comes down to evoking some type of emotion 🙂

    Hi Julie,
    Infographics seem to have gained a lot of popularity in recent years, a lot more people have started using it and it has proven to be very successful in terms of driving traffic and getting more social shares.Great to be here, please continue a good job. Thanks
