As Wil continues to create multi-viral content with friends, he can share some gems of wisdom that have been crucial to maintaining his viral success.

“ Don’t try to go viral” Wil insists.

He explains that being genuine , knowing exactly what you want to create, and being consistent with the content will help anyone go viral. It’s not just the content, but it is understanding the strategy of timing that will increase engagement in minutes.

“ Place towards what’s relative” Wil advises.

When social media blasts different challenges and trending pop culture events the world will be glued to your content. This one thing alone could be the major force behind one going from one thousand views to a million.

No matter there are times when content may not trend as previous viral content, but Will expresses the importance of staying the course.

“ Believe and don’t quit” Wil states
