I Wanna Go Viral!!!

Yeah! And I want to win the lottery too. Going viral isn’t really something you count on.

But WAIT! There may be some key elements in viral videos that if incorporated into your work COULD lead your video to end up with that all telling hit count, likes, reposts, shares, etc.

Bryan Boettger, Chief Creative Officer of The Buddy Group and creator of the Viral Barometer, just published an article on MediaPost with some tips on things that MIGHT help make your video rock the ethernet.

Bryan says, “It’s just a matter of applying some science to your art.”

Here’s the short list – check out his article for the details – including links to videos that exhibit one or more of these particular elements. I have to admit I was strangely drawn to the taxidermist spot – very odd…

1. Authenticity

2. Irreproducible

3. Odd

4. Funny

5. Musical

6. Surprising

7. Impressive

8. Parodied or Copied

9. Painful or Embarrassing

10. Pop Culture Timeliness
