4 easy steps to make your video go viral!

15 Mar, 2010 McKell Naegle


We admit it.

No one can guarantee that people will pick up on a video and pass it on to others.

But there are basic principles, that, if followed, will help move it in that direction.

Consider these ideas . . .

SIMPLE: Keep it short and to the point.

Two minutes or less; the shorter the better. Most people don’t have long attention spans.

ENTERTAIN or EDUCATE: Most people will share if it does one of these two things.

KEEP IT VISUAL: After all, it is a medium that uses audio and video. Offer transitions often to break up the monotony, and do not employ a “talking head” that can bore people.

SHARE: Make sure you share your video. Tell others to forward it to their friends. Upload it to as many social networking sites as possible.

See the video below for some additional ideas.
