Newsjacking allows you to use something entirely unrelated and irrelevant for your benefit. By using something ridiculously popular, you can make something impactful more popular as well. Newsjacking is important because if done correctly, you’ll see exponentially increased website traffic and link shares. With a clear call-to-action, you might even see a large increase in leads and conversions. These types of results can be especially beneficial for inbound marketing, as well as fundraising and Kickstarter-type campaigns.
