Ask Me:

How do I create a viral video, so I get millions of views, on Youtube?  Remember, if your video doesn’t get 10 million views, it sucks; because a lot depends on your niche and what they want to see.


Here are some elements that make a viral video.

1) It is usually funny. 2) Grabs your attention.3) Able to relate or appeal to the general audience (like, common issues in relationships,  everyday problems at the workplace, stupid things people do, knowing they do the same thing.  4) Being controversial. Having a strong opinion, against something or someone, for a cause. 5) Should be sharable. Ask yourself, would others want to share this, like this or use this? So that’s basically it for getting your video viral. “ALWAYS have a purpose”, beyond just having it go viral.

There are hundreds of funny viral commercials out there, that you would never remember the brand orproduct! Anyway, if you have any other questions, maybe we’ll feature them in upcoming episodes! Send them here at .
