Quotes are insanely powerful. They have pass the test of time, they’ve obviously exceeded the expectations of who said them and even survive the fall of empires. One statement made by a figure in history, regardless of who they are, can resonate just as strongly hundreds or even thousands of years later. Well into the future, you can be sure that a good quote will still be circulating, both from antiquity and from what is today modern.
How can you use this to your advantage?
If you have a social media presence, you will notice that content containing quotes are quick to go viral. But even better, they have a timelessness that allows them to stay there. While relevant to a current event, the entire point behind one of these sayings is that it is applicable well after the events they are applied to pass.
Another way is by creating an infographic with the details you quote from a past piece of work. Statistics take on a whole new and effective meaning when presented more visually. The same goes for slideshows, videos and other visual media that you can share on youtube, vimeo and other slide sharing sites. And that my friends is a brain dead way of leveraging the internet.

This is the very reason I’m currently working on “Viral Quotes and Graphics,” a combination of marketing, inspirational, success quotes and info graphics. So that you can syphon a stupid amount of traffic from Pinterest, Facebook and your blog ect. Coming Soon!!
