Quality Requirements

Can any content be promoted through this platform?

Our platform is called “Viral Content Buzz” which implies that we are looking to help push high-quality content that has a good potential to go viral. Yes, that’s quite a vague definition but we will make sure to add more guidelines with time. So far, all the submissions are manually moderated. We won’t allow self-promotional or affiliate product reviews or made-for-ads ezinearticles-type content. All the rest is subject to our review.

Why am I disabled from sharing on Pinterest?

Sometimes we have to disable certain accounts from sharing if we find that:

  • Pinterest accounts are too new (there are few followers and no interactions)
  • Pinterest shares go to irrelevant boards
  • Pinterest is used exclusively for VCB sharing

We aim at promoting authentic sharing and real value here, so we have to ask you to treat VCB shares seriously!

Quality Requirements to VCB Social Media Accounts

While we do automatically evaluate your social media accounts based on how many connections you have built there, it’s not all about numbers…

Please be aware of these quality requirements:

  • All social media accounts connected to VCB are required to maintain a natural social media presence: Share content from other places except for VCB, interact with friends, etc. We don’t allow to maintain social media accounts just for the sake of sharing VCB projects
  • All social media accounts connected to VCB are required to have established following that interacts with the shares
  • We may disable your social media accounts from VCB sharing if we notice there are no interactions with VCB projects you share.
  • We may disable your social media account if we notice you share too aggressively.
  • We will disable your account if you are promoting your own site in each social media update. Let’s keep things authentic!

Please be advised that if your shares are determined to be breaking our quality requirements, we may disable them and refund the users the spent credits.

VCB is all about natural sharing and building meaningful connections. Please only share content you really like and want to spread.

How to build your social media accounts to qualify for VCB sharing?

Social media promotion Viral Content BeeViral Content Buzz has Tumblr and Linkedin sharing enabled. However we cannot stress enough how serious we are about only allowing real, authentic and natural accounts to share from our platform.

If your Tumblr and Linkedin sharing has ever been disabled for you inside VCB, most probably that’s because your Tumblr and Linkedin accounts don’t comply with our quality guidelines. Don’t give up! You can be accepted back if you start building your account up. Here’s how…

[***Remember, by building up your Tumblr and Linkedin accounts, you invest in your own asset: Your powerful social media accounts will remain yours, whether you keep using VCB or not. You’ll be able to use for content marketing whenever you need it.]

But how do you build your social media account? I don’t mean how do you sign up, that is self explanatory. You need to know how to properly set up and use your account so that it is prime for growth, and offers you the best benefits. Especially if you are using it for content promotion, as I assume everyone reading this will be.

Be Thorough In Setting Up Your Social Media Account

You wouldn’t leave your Timeline cover photo or Twitter profile description blank, would you? How about use a terrible cover image for a Pinterest board you want people to follow? Of course not! So why wouldn’t you do everything in your power to make your social media profiles attractive and informative?

Take the time to complete your profile, and make sure it looks good and informs the viewer about what you do. It will help the right people find you. Besides, it looks cheap and unprofessional if you don’t. That is the wrong message to send.

Don’t Treat Social Media Account Like A Content Dumping Ground

Social media is not a dumping ground for every post you have ever written. It is a place where you can gracefully place certain pieces that you feel are your best, and promote them.

That doesn’t mean you can’t use it for all new posts as they come, but you want to ask yourself if they are really worth seeing? If not, take them off and replace them with something better.

Use social media to connect and discover content in the first place. Drive value to build your Karma up:

  • Like pages shared by your connections (Find them on the platform home page after you login)
  • Like and comment pages in categories you like
  • Share pages that you just found awesome

Find People to Follow

Follow social media users to get followed back. This is often the first step to building up your social media presence: You need connections

I usually follow people who like or review content I liked or reviewed. I also follow people who follow my friends who we seem to share interests with
