    I have a really funny picture of a face my kitten pulled.

    Does anyone know a method for getting a picture viral. I was thinking pinterest but I don't know of anyway's to monetize on there.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Meme pictures tend to contain text as well.

    Trying submitting it to Reddit, they love cats - if your going for traffic watermark the image with your logo but don't make it annoyingly large.

    Tumblr (link to something), facebook (put it on a fanpage), pinterest (put a link in it).

    Reddit - definitely, however they won't take kindly to a watermark, someone will probably photoshop it out and resubmit it, try and use the comments

    Yes, and it's not that hard. There was an image of George Zimmerman and Trayvan that went viral instantly where there is a pic of Zimmerman in coat and tie instead of mug shot and Trayvan as a 17 yr old(not a 8 year old as the media as shown every pic of him) with the saggy pants and giving two middle fingers. Was it real or shopped? I dunno, but the image went viral almost instantly and was all over FB.

    You can post it in facebook and then anyone can share it.

    If you are in a CPV network, start a RON campaign at $0.004 per view, set a $5.00 Daily Cap.

    Run it for a few days. If it has truly viral potential this will kick start it.
