How To Make A Viral Video!
Everyday, viral videos are watched by millions of people! Everyone dreams of being able to make a video that will skyrocket them to internet fame. If you happen to have that popular video monetized, on Youtube, then you stand to gain a nice amount of money from all the views, not to mention, all the attention.
In this article I will bring up some key points & elements about viral videos and what makes them such a hit and how you could possibly go about making one of your very own. I came up with a nice formula for what genres exist on what makes them special and what path, or ways, you might want to choose when trying to make yours.
Everyone loves watching Viral Videos! They hope, that someday, they will have one of their own, make it to center stage.
Just think of it.....A video that's yours! Everyone's talking about it, watching it, sending it to others....It's spreading like wildfire! How awesome would that be!
Also, at the end of this page I've added some videos I've put together that may or may not be epic! The views are climbing for my videos but as of yet, I don't have one of those instant sensations, that catapults to the top of the cake in no time at all. Sometimes when you make a video, it can take awhile before it goes viral, sometimes you just have to sit and wait for it to be passed around like a serving tray full of delicious goodies.
What Are Viral Videos? What Makes Them HUGE? What Can I Do To Make One? - The Key Elements & Reasons For Viral Videos
Simply put, Viral Videos are a Phenomenon!
Each viral video has it's own reason for being famous. These reasons are pretty simple and I've made them into an acronym.....
The F.A.C.E.S. of a Smash Hit, Viral Video Are:
F. is For Funny, Very Funny.
Viral Videos that are hilarious & make it so you can't stop laughing and you've got to show someone else this gold! Funny because something ridiculous happened or someone was acting ridiculous. Either way, it struck a chord in your laughing mechanics.
F. is Also For Fail. Fail videos are ones in which something disastrous happens. Whether it be an accident of physical proportions(crash & bangs)or a video about something not exactly going the way it should have. Maybe, even a person thinking they can do something that they can't. Either way, Fail Videos are a big deal on the web.
A. is For Awesome, Amazing & Awww
A video showing something that is just so amazing that you're in Awe! Explosions! Talent up the Wahzoo! You get the Idea. Maybe even a video that girls will find cute and say Awwww.
Kittehs! Cuddles & Schmoopies! hahaha
C. is For Cool & Crazy.
The Cool factor is pretty much the same explanation as Awesome & Amazing but not in the sense of explosions & it's more refined/shaped, like the saying "That's So Cool!"
Someone playing an awesome song on a piano, a cool gadget, a nice piece of work.
Crazy would be something that happened a certain way that you're like "Holy Cow, That's Crazy!" Some freak accident or even a controlled subject working perfectly. The Wow factor!
E. is For Entertainment & Educational.
An absolutely entertaining video with all the elements, a music video with all the perks. Pretty much any video that has great value and substance, deeming it entertaining to watch and keeps you invested in it, throughout or for a good amount of the time.
Educational videos are another highly viewed genre of viral videos. Whether it's needing to know how to tie a tie or learning to finally play that guitar or piano you bought, the internet has you covered!
S. is For Shocking, Suspense & Sex Appeal!
Shock & Awe! You can't watch it but you can't look away. Your jaw has dropped to the floor, you can't believe that just happened.
Suspenseful Anticipation in it's truest form. Will the person or subject make it out of the woods and into the clearing, away from the danger.
You have to see what happens, the ending to this climax is crucial! Until you get that closure, you're on the edge of your seat and unrelaxed, working towards being relaxed as your mind races ahead, to scout what might be coming or the possible ending.
Sex Appeal! Sex Sells! Scantily clad or just plain beautiful girls talking about anything under the sun, will always be a sought after video by guys. Gotta Love Eye Candy!
Those are the reasons for Viral Video Success!

How Can I Make A Viral Video?
One of the key ways to get some video captured gold, that might be Viral some day, is to always have a video camera with you. Thankfully, almost all phones have video function nowadays, but if the subject, of your recording goes long, then you'll run out of memory space on your phone and the video will end.
A lot of viral video happenings, start & end rather quickly. But you just never know if it could be a long drawn out situation that might warrant a long interview from a news company or maybe a morning talk show that pays pretty nicely for your content, participation & time.

Security & Web Camera Viral Footage
A Great Way To Make A Viral Video
Security cameras are a sure way of catching something that could end up being worthy of attention. Most of the security camera recordings will hold nothing of value but at least it's on, in case something does happen. Or just put a webcam in your window & if you happen to live near, or, on a busy street then that would be a great setup. Car accidents are an unavoidable statistic that constantly happen. Widely populated areas bring in a lot of diverse groups & types of people. Unpredictable elements are a plus.
Here's an article I wrote, it's an easy & affordable way on how to make your own security camera system:
