11 Tips to Create a YouTube Sensation

Viral videos have the potential to be seen by millions of viewers, but ensuring that your video ‘goes viral’ can be tricky. We’ll share some of the big secrets to viral success.

Every videographer dreams that their work will go viral, that they will shoot something that so speaks to people that it spreads like wildfire over the Internet. A viral video is a great way to bring attention to your business or show off your video-creating talents. And while it’s almost impossible to predict what will go viral, there are certain things that you can include in your videos to increase the odds that you’ll have a smash Internet hit on your hands.

A viral video is any video that becomes popular by being passed from person to person via the web. (It’s quite similar to a “meme,” which refers to any content that is passed along in the same manner.) Marketers, entertainers, and videographers spend a lot of time trying to create videos calculated to “go viral” sometimes with great success. One of the earliest examples from the early days of YouTube was Lonelygirl15, the supposedly-true-life adventures of a girl being pursued by a mysterious illuminati-like cabal. The video captured worldwide attention after it was revealed to be a hoax. You don’t need to invent an elaborate fictional universe to make a popular viral video, though.
