We’ve all seen at least one cat video, and then looked at the views and been like holy moly 5,000,000 views on this silly video! Just in case you didn’t know it’s confirmed that Cats are the most watched thing on YouTube, and now on Facebook too! It feels like cats doing fun, crazy, and silly things makes people laugh and share. If you’re a content marketer you know that the only way for a piece of content to go viral is it must be shared, or friends must tag other friends in the comments.

So why do cats get so much social love?

  2. 2. We’ve all seen at least one cat video, and then looked at the views and been like holy moly 5,000,000 views on this silly video! Just in case you didn’t know it’s confirmed that Cats are the most watched thing on YouTube, and now on Facebook too! It feels like cats doing fun, crazy, and silly things makes people laugh and share. If you’re a content marketer you know that the only way for a piece of content to go viral is it must be shared, or friends must tag other friends in the comments. So why do cats get so much social love? I’m going to break it down into two simple reasons why cats rule SOCIAL!
  3. 3. Cats make us Laugh This is the bottom line, I don’t know how many of you have a cat. But if you do, then you know that cats are truly so quirky that they make us laugh and smile! We in fact started a fun community page on Facebook called Funny Cats, and within a year with not $1 put on Facebook boosted posts we’ve grown from 0-20,000 fans, and our content on average gets close to 85 share per post. The bottom line is that cats don’t just make us laugh; they make us want to share that with others! This in the simplest of terms is the main reason that Cats go VIRAL!!
  4. 4. Cats are loveable As I’m writing this blog, I have my cat Sable laying right next to me. Every 5-10 minutes she will look up, and look back at me as to say papa please pet me! It’s so endearing and honestly most of the time it works; even when I’m slammed busy & stressed I will find that I will take 5- 10 seconds to pet my cat. In turn I find myself in a state of joy, harmony and peace with that simple break from reality to give back to the little animal in my household. The fact that I feel this much joy after playing with my cat shows that on social, people feel that same feeling without even being there. Admit it cats are so LOVEABLE!
  5. 5. As social marketers we need to embrace the power of Cats & all pets in our creative, I’ve seen more and more brands embrace this in all aspects of their marketing & advertising! I love seeing brands who aren’t afraid to try, I think that the biggest hidden secret to VIRAL success on social is just putting in the effort! I hope this blog inspires you to think about cats and content differently in the FUTURE!!
