  • Building A YouTube Community
    • You can get started without uploading videos of your own.
    • Subscribing to other channels and posting comments on other videos is a way to increase your channel subscriptions. It is also acceptable to ask for a subscription (or “sub”) back, but don’t harass users if they don’t want to “sub” you.
    • When you upload, comment or favorite a video, it will show up in your friends’ and subscribers’ activity feed on their homepage and vice versa.
  • Building A YouTube Community
    • Friend request or subscribe to: anyone who posts content that is relevant to your industry, customers, people in your city or town, colleagues, vendors, competitors and other influential/popular YouTube channels.
    • On YouTube, the more friends and subscribers you have the more your content will be viewed.
    • If you’re lucky enough to have a video of yours go viral, building a community will go quickly and organically.
  • A Word About Viral Videos
    • First of all, you don’t make a viral video…a video GOES viral.
    • There are no guarantees your video will have that perfect viral chemistry. But you can certainly give it a try!
    Charlie Bit My Finger , which was uploaded on May 22, 2007, is a viral video that has received the most views of any user generated YouTube video, with over 300 million views. Source:
  • A Word About Viral Videos
    • Viral Video Elements for Success:
      • Keep it short
      • Focused
      • Hyper-relevant
      • Have an emotional trigger: funny, sexy, surprising, shocking, illuminating
      • It should start a conversation
      • And feature a cat or laughing baby 
    Dead Kitty , which was uploaded on Sept. 12, 2007 by one of our very own Whizbang employees, is an example of a viral video that paid off, too. With a total view count of 1,330,653 and an average of 50,000 new views every month, Google AdSense pays this YouTuber about $125 per month. With that, this kitty pays for her own cat food!
