Most of us have been on several failed social sites like Virily. And I for one do not want to be on another. There are several things we can all do that will help make Virily succeed:
- Share other people’s work – we all share our own work on twitter etc. but the more we share each other’s work the better. I’ve found that I get quite a bit of traffic coming from tweets where I’ve shared other people’s work – Virily automatically adds your referral ID so not only do you get ‘visit’ Virls – but you may also get benefit from new members joining your link.
- Promote Virily – the more people that join the better. However, we should try and get people who are willing to create quality content and not simply span.
- Don’t Spam – if you are a member of Facebook you’ll know how annoying it is to see the same old meme, or posts that are trying to simply get Like or Share. If virily simply becomes the same then it will die – we need unique quality content, not just a re-hash of every other social site.
- Interact – Virily has provided some great tools to interact. Not only can we comment, but more importantly we have fun items like quizzes and posts where we all can add pictures to. The more we interact, the more likely Virily will succeed.
At the end of the day, Virily will only survive if us users are interactive and not simply spamming to get money – money should never be the driver –the minute it becomes more about money, the minute it fails!
