IDEA 20: Create Viral Videos on YouTube
This is one of my favourite ideas which I have not quite mastered. When a YouTube video is shared exponentially it becomes a viral video. Viral videos are those which are extremely funny or moving and compels the viewer to share the video with all of their friends, family and contacts. This sharing process is repeated a few hundred times until the video receives a record number of views.
To get started all you need to do is research and watch viral videos. Once you've watched a dozen you will find a recurring theme. Using this theme you can create another video and then share it with as many people as you can. You should notice your views rising rapidly if you have truly created a viral video. If you haven't created a viral video be patient and try again, the more you practice the better you will become at creating excellent videos. Once you've created the videos you need to post them on YouTube and then monetize the content using the Google Adsense Advertising Service. The more advertisements that are placed on your video the more money you will make. One such video which involved two children biting each other went viral to reach 500,000,000 views worldwide. The publisher of the video was able to monetize the content using Google Adsense and has since made over $250,000 in advertising revenue.
Whenever I need more money I post a few videos on YouTube in the hope that they will go viral. This is definitely a quick money making system and requires creativity and continual publishing of quality videos. YouTube will be around for a long time which is why this has the potential to become a long term business system which you can use to earn more money.
