Here are some ideas for leveraging other social media tools to help promote your videos and increase awareness to them. Assuming the content is unique, original, entertaining, etc, the more people that view it, the greater the chance you have of it potentially “going viral”.
Blogs – reach out to influential bloggers to check out your videos (more effective if you already have established relationships)

Facebook – Leverage your followers and share a video with them (the larger your network, the more impact this will have)

Email – Send the video out to your contacts

Your Friends – Ask them to watch the video and forward it to their friends too.  You tell two friends who tell two friends who tell two friends and so on…

Influential Social Media Contacts – if you have these, leverage these – if not, begin to build these.  The benefit is real simple, get them to show your video to their large groups of followers, who will in turn show it to their networks of friends, and it potentially keeps repeating.

Terms like viral video, viral marketing, etc., have in many ways become cliché. Everyone talks about them, but no one really explains it. There is no “magic formula” to follow for content to go viral but there are strategic elements that are usually present. Here are just a few of these elements to consider.

Let’s analyze a couple of viral videos to see how these elements are addressed

Video #1 – Lost Generation

Some have called this one of the most inspirational videos on YouTube while others have criticized it. Regardless of your view, it has clearly went viral and generated millions of views.

Video #2 – The Toshiba Space Chair Project

Last Video, #3 – Will It Blend? – iPad

Wrap Up:

Three distinct video types that each went viral but they all shared similar characteristics. However don’t forget, while viral videos have certain common characteristics, it needs a certain level of luck too!
