Just posting a video on YouTube or another site is not enough to make it go viral. It’s important to give it some good marketing via social media, your own website and personal e mails. People need to know that your video exists to watch it.
Also make sure to share the video widely. Email your videos to all your family and friends, and encourage them to do the same. Also, make a post on your blog about your new videos. Get the word out to clients through emails. Post about it on Facebook, YouTube, or other online video hosting sites. The important thing is to get your video out to the masses.
Create interesting content. It should be entertaining and/or newsworthy. Placing your videos on YouTube is sure to boost traffic, but if the video is boring, it will not do much good.
