Have you ever heard of Viral Content Bee? It used to be called Viral Content Buzz, but it rebranded recently. I’m still pretty sure most of you have never heard of it though as it’s hardly ever mentioned in the “15 ways to promote your blog” kind of articles that we come across every day.
So why am I about to rant about Viral Content Bee? Well because it’s the single best-kept social media secret out there, and you can get on it real easy and fast.

As bloggers who want to succeed in our online endeavors, we are always looking for ways to get more eyes on our content. We often turn to specialized social media schedulers that run on autopilot to re-share our posts at the best times according to algorithms and social media studies.
We hire virtual assistants to share on Facebook and fill up our Tailwind tribes and Board Booster secret boards. Helpers add our links to sharing threads, and we just keep hustling and finding new ways to get the Social Media game on our side.Viral Content Bee is the single best-kept #SocialMedia secret out there!

I have found that with Viral Content Bee you can do all this, but best of all your content isn’t being re-shared by you but rather by other influencers. There is no time limit like on FB sharing threads with their never-ending lists of links to get through before the next 24 hours.
Viral Content Bee goes at your own pace! But obviously the more active you are, the more your content will get shared!
How does Viral Content Bee work?
First things first you have to sign up to Viral Content Bee with either your Facebook or Twitter profile, easy peasy. You will be asked to confirm your account via an email in your inbox. Confirm and create your profile, then choose three categories that fit your interests (you can change these later as you share other posts).
Next step is to connect your social media accounts; Facebook Pages, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, and Google+.
VCB checks your Facebook pages and only accepts the ones that have a minimum amount of likes. If you have 5 Facebook pages that meet the requirements, you can add them all. You can also add five different Twitter accounts. StumbleUpon and Pinterest only take up one each and Google + is a bonus.
Credits and Projects
Everything on Viral Content Buzz is done with credits. You earn credits by sharing, and you use them as a budget for your projects. When you share other people’s content on your social media via the VCB Dashboard, you earn credits that go into your account. When you have saved 30 credits, you are ready to create your first project.
How to Start Your Own Project
To start your own project, go to ‘add project’ and add the URL of the post you want to get shared. Then some descriptive information for Twitter and Facebook.
You then need to select up to three groups of interest for your project to go into. Next, you decide it what social media platforms you want the project shared on.
If you choose to add Pinterest, you will then need to insert the URL of a Pinterest graphic. You also have the option to allow people to choose if Stumble Upon or Twitter.
With Twitter is a good idea to add you username without the @ symbol. Finally, click Submit.
When you have a free account, all projects need to be checked by the VCB team, but it doesn’t usually take too long. The minimum credits you need to start a project is 10, but you can use 50 or more as well.
It’s that easy! I guess you didn’t think it was that simple.Follow these tips to successfully share your blog content using Viral Content BeeClick To Tweet
