You can create the best & most entertaining video in the land, upload it on to Youtube and find that it is not getting anywhere. You can also easily create one of the worst videos in history and find it goes viral-:
70k hits + in 4 days.
What is the Secret? How do you make your video go viral and monetize it? Let's start by looking at an example of a video that has gone viral and why.
3.5m hits + in 1 month.
Fenton (Or Benton!) the dog is a hilarious video with red deer being scattered over Richmond Park in London by an angry owner's unstoppable hound! The combination of cause and effect coupled with the owner's inability to stop the dog and his shouting makes this video a "must see."
Numerous sites uploaded the video to their own, everybody wanted to share it and the seeds were sown. So much so, that "Have I Got News For You" picked-up on this, Paul Merton rubbished it and thus further "talk" ensued, more viewings and thus became viral almost immediately.
Both above examples are from complete video novices to youtube - And both were lucky to be picked up by various Internet Media for the expolsion to take place.
The good news is that you can sow the seeds yourself. All you need is to be a member of a few social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter!
As soon as you upload your video, share it with everyone you know. Details of how to upload your video on to this Website below.
Depending on the variety of video you have uploaded, seek out as many Websites as you have time for that will accept your relevant youtube uploaded video - Upload the video on to these sites as quickly as you are able.
Examples of these sites-:
Crazy Days and Nights
If possible, create lots of videos. The more videos you create, the greater the chance of one of them going viral.
People like to share anything that is funny. These videos have the most chance of self-seeding. Funny videos with a surprise/shocking ending are memorable and work well.
People love visually compelling content and one way to create it is to experiment with filmmaking techniques to try and show people something they haven't seen before.
Timing-: Friday lunchtime is disputedly the best time to start uploading videos.
Posts-: The more controversial posts are on your video upload, the better. This is a surefire way for people to become actively engaged and start "conversations" in the comment section.
Monetizing-: Once you have accumulated around 50,000 hits, youtube will email you to invite you to monetize your videos. You are able to apply beforehand, but unless you have enough history, videos and hits, you are unlikely to be accepted. To save time, set up a Google Ad Sense account now - It's free and means you will be able to link your youtube account directly to this without spending more time doing this later.
This post is by no means finished as yet - Please bookmark it and we will complete it by the end of this coming weekend.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and the best of luck in making your video go viral - and making money from it!
