Jocelyn’s Viral Viability tips :

Remain true to your brand.

Your brand distinguishes you from everyone else. It is the positive perception of you in the mind of your target audience. Your brand is how people think of you as they engage with you. Your presence and energy is felt in a very specific and authentic way.


Eliminate or at least minimize the distractions around you. If what you are doing doesn’t line up with where you want to be, or go, let it go, as Idina Menzel would sing! “ Turn away and slam the door…”


Where are you getting the most clicks, likes and feedback? Determine the frequency in which a user returns to your site.

Tailor your message to the platform.

If using a Tweet, don’t write a book, if on LinkedIn remain professional, if using Instagram, communicate your message in pictures and videos, you can use a combination of all of these methods of expression on Facebook.

Timing is everything.

Redeem the time, solve a problem that is relevant to your audience NOW, and offer your unique value proposition.

Originality is the secret sauce.

I used to think innovation meant creating something from nothing. I later learned that innovation can simply be a new twist on something that has been done before. In my head, I can hear the voice of Simon Cowell from America’s Got Talent, whatever it is… “ make it your own.”

With love and gratitude,
