Thinking about making your video go viral? What makes a video go viral? Well, you came here so that’s a good place to start. I have dug up the research and I’ve figured out what many others have figured out and what many others wish they could pull off.
What makes a video go viral? Jimmy Kimmel seems to have a lot to do with it, but what are you going to do that is going to make you catch Kimmel’s eye? Are you going to pull off the most epic prank by posting a “worst twerk fail EVER- Girl on fire” and then later reveal that you were actually the one behind it. Hmm… all interesting thoughts, but here are some tips that will help you create an epic viral video that will have the rest of the world going absolutely nuts.
When trying to get a video to go viral you must try to focus on it being shared rather than be concerned with the amount of views it has. The more people that share your video the more views you will get. Essentially sharing helps you get views. Remember all these things and you will be sure to get the attention of someone like Mr. Kimmel. Just make sure to thank me and not Mr. Kimmel when you get that interview on his show.
