1. The Title:

This is most times referred to as the Headline. Its the first bait which captures the attention of the reader. People do not actually give a damn about you and your posts, that is the harsh reality.

People really do not care much about what you put out there, its your headline that has the ability to capture and transform their mindset from the default mindset of "not caring about the stuffs a creator posts" to a new mindset of seeing it as an "obligation" to click on that particular content.

As a content creator who's trying to improve on headlines, kindly note that the best headlines don't need to be witty, clever, or complex, keep your headline straight, simple and to the point. Begin by understanding the subject line that you want to write about, put the reader in mind, and let the facts speak for you, make it personal, don't forget the supporting cast, ask questions that make people think. With all these put in place, there's a high tendency that your titles/headlines will appear to be one of the best if not the best and this will also reflect positively on the performance of your contents.

Therefore work on your headlines.

Thumbnails play a very vital role in helping your contents go viral. As the saying goes "First impression matters" so also is applicable here. The thumbnail serves as that first visual impression that captures the attention of your readers and force them to stream your content.

3. The human attention span is very short, about 7 seconds. Therefore an attractive thumbnail is a necessary in order for a content to go viral.

Your contents on the web and various media will be useless if you can’t grab your reader's attention at the beginning of the post that's why you really need to try out the above mentioned formats if you want positive results.
