dog-skateboardIf we got a pound every time a company asked us to make them a viral video we would literally have £33.50.  So we thought it might be a good idea to run through the basics…

Viral videos build brand awareness, they rarely contribute to sales.

99% of viral videos are either; funny, cute, sexy, violent or show a genuinely amazing feat.

They elicit a strong emotion, be that OMG! Or Gross!

A viral video is not an Infomercial.  That means the moment you find yourself saying, “I’m not sure the messaging is coming through strongly enough.” you need to stop.  Instead REMOVE any dialogue that extolls the features and benefits, any lingering product shots, and any stats.

Having the Big Idea is not always enough. Unless you are extremely lucky, you will still need either a huge online network of friends or be comfortable spending money on seeding.  Ideally both.

Going viral isn’t always a good thing.  Several big names have ended up offending their audience or having their idea hijacked by a rival company or group.

Still want to make a viral? Well then here are three viral video ideas you can have on us, just pop your logo at the end of one of these success magnets and let us knew how you get on!

1. The Queen chowing down on a Big Mac – One’s loving it

2. The first skydive from the moon back to earth – your brand on that spacesuit.

3. A cat attacking a printer while Chuck Norris watches– comedy gold.
