Have you ever watched a video with 100,000 views on You Tube and thought to yourself: “How the hell did that video get so many views?
” Chances are pretty good that this didn’t happen naturally, but rather that some company worked hard to make it happen – some company like mine.
You Tube provides three choices for a video’s thumbnail, one of which is grabbed from the exact middle of the video.
As we edit our videos, we make sure that the frame at the very middle is interesting.
Rather, a brand should be fit into a great concept.When most people talk about “viral videos,” they’re usually referring to videos like Miss Teen South Carolina, Smirnoff’s Tea Partay music video, the Sony Bravia ads, Soulja Boy – videos that have traveled all around the internet and been posted on You Tube, My Space, Google Video, Facebook, Digg, blogs, etc. Over the past year, I have run clandestine marketing campaigns meant to ensure that promotional videos become truly viral, as these examples have become in the extreme.In this post, I will share some of the techniques I use to do my job: to get at least 100,000 people to watch my clients’ “viral” videos.Once a video is on the Most Viewed page, what can be done to maximize views?It seems obvious, but people see hundreds of videos on You Tube, and the title and thumbnail are an easy way for video publishers to actively persuade someone to click on a video.
