In today’s digital age, social media has evolved into a strong phenomenon that may catapult one’s career in a matter of minutes. Countless people have become millionaires simply because a video or photograph of them went viral.
Pakistan, too, has seen the rise of showbiz figures who rose to prominence through viral material. Hania Aamir, who was discovered via Dubsmash, and burgeoning talents like Amna Youzasaif and Romaisa Khan, who were identified owing to their viral presence and eventually won roles in popular dramas and films like Fairy Tale and Chand Tara, are notable instances.
The allure of viral fame has led many aspiring individuals to seek ways to make their mark on social media. Recently, Tabish Hashmi featured Romaisa Khan as a guest on his show. Both Tabish and Romaisa are social media personalities who gained prominence through their online presence and have now secured significant opportunities in the entertainment industry. Tabish, in particular, has become a prominent figure, hosting one of Pakistan’s biggest shows.
When asked about tips for going viral, Tabish emphasized that there is no specific formula, but dedication is crucial. He explained that consistently creating content keeps people engaged and eager for more videos from you. Eventually, something has the potential to go viral. However, he also emphasized the importance of uniqueness in content, advising against creating trivial or nonsensical material.
In a world saturated with social media content, standing out from the crowd is paramount. While going viral may seem like a shortcut to success, Tabish’s advice highlights the importance of dedication, quality, and originality in creating engaging content. It serves as a reminder that building a sustainable career in the digital realm requires consistent effort and a focus on delivering valuable and distinctive content to captivate and retain audiences.
