You can create contagious content, if you understand what make things go viral online. In this presentation, I will share three stories I wrote that went viral online. I will share some secrets I learned along the way, too.
This is the story of
how my friend, Keith Anderson. Keith was greatly helped when a piece of content I wrote went viral online.
Keith has a wife, Julie,
and two daughters. In this picture, they are enjoying a holiday break one year before a traumatic event affected all their lives.
One year later, Keith would
be diagnosed with pancreatitis, which is severe inflammation of the pancreas. It is very painful, like having a heart attack.
My friend would undergo four
surgeries. He was hooked up to a dialysis machine. Keith was put into drug-induced coma for over a month. He gained 100 pounds of water weight. He lungs were filling up with water (at one point).
I thought of his family.
I needed to do something. I asked Julie how they were doing financially. She said, “Ok.” But, I knew better. So, I did something about it.
