October 6, 2016 - Ride the Viral Wake

It's been hard to find worthy and actionable posts in the IM community blogosphere lately, and I was even more surprised that this came out of the ahrefs crew. First they take a look at a successful, large success viral campaign. Then they show you how you can steal the concept and narrow it down to specific communities to basically guarantee killer links, shares, and traffic.

If you guys find great posts out there, IM or otherwise, send me a PM. We're open to actionable tips for anything related to business!
