A Youtube Manager shares her top tips on what makes a video go viral.

Key tips:

  1. Instead of asking What will make my video viral? You should ask, What will make people want to share this? People want to share something meaningful or valuable to them.
  2. Work with people who already have a large audience. Try asking a YouTube video creator who could easily spread your message.
  3. Quantity and Quality. Both matter. Quality doesn’t have to mean expensively produced video. That being said, you should aim for regular engagement with your audience. So think frequent posts and high quality message.
  4. Build for web and mobile. With so many on smartphones, you need your video to have an impact on a smaller screen.
