Tip #1: Find Inspiration in the Comments Section

If you want to create viral short-form content, you have to learn what your audience really has an appetite for.

Valeria suggests taking a peek at your comments section

Oftentimes you can catch the content creator going through her YouTube comment section to find inspiration for her next viral video series or uncovering what type of posts her audience values most.

“I go through the comments to see specific moments people were attached to. That’s an indication that a piece of content resonated with people and can stand on its own,” shares Valeria.

For example, if you share fashion content (like Valeria) and notice users asking for fall styling recommendations, a video highlighting chic fall staples might be the ticket to your next viral video success.

Think of the comments section as your very own focus group. A space to check out what users are most engaged with, and help inform and inspire your next piece of content.

TIP: If your comment section isn’t bumping just yet, that’s okay. Look through your DMs or customer emails to pull content ideas.

Tip #3: Get Face-to-face with Your Audience

Don’t be shy! The best way to connect with your audience is by being face-to-face. 

Your followers want to feel a genuine connection and getting front and center on your TikToks and Reels can create a real sense of community with your audience. 

“I always recommend as many in-person, face-to-face video content as possible – it’s way more informal and feels as if your followers are going through your day with you. And that has real power when it comes to building a community,” notes Valeria.

Showcase your personality (quirks and all!) with your audience – whether you’re answering questions via a TikTok Live or speaking directly to your audience through Instagram Reels.

Trust us (and Valeria), seeing a familiar face on social media can instantly stop a scroll in its tracks!
