What Were The 3 Most Viral Videos On Facebook In 2011?
If you are interested in making a viral video, or if you’ve ever wondered how viral videos get so popular on Facebook or Youtube and other social media sites, check this out…
Here’s a short list of the 3 most viral videos to appear Facebook in 2011:
- Video:- Father Daughter Dance Medley (Yahoo)
- Video: Twin Baby Boys Have A Conversation! (Yahoo)
- Video: Laughing Baby Loves Ripping Paper! (Yahoo)
Do you spot any common themes? LOL!
Viral Videos Are Emotional And Personal
Two of the videos give us cute baby footage, two of them show us a father-child relationship and they all tug at our emotions in one way or another.
NONE of them is trying to sell us anything.
So, if you want to get into video marketing, take the focus off your products and put it on a personal, warm, emotive, human-interest theme.
Sure, you can make videos that explain the features and benefits of your product line, but don’t make them the be-all-and-end-all of your video marketing campaigns.
YOU Are Your Most Unique Product…
Remember, when it comes to Internet marketing, you are your most unique product, so stuff about you, your pets, your family, especially funny or goofy stuff, or stuff that pulls the heartstrings, will be much more likely to go viral than anything else.
For example, the third video, Laughing Baby Loves Ripping Paper, was a totally spontaneous video. The father received a letter of rejection after applying for a job, and when he tore the letter his baby son, Micah, began to laugh. The guy grabbed a movie camera thinking it would be nice to show Mum… and he ended up giving an interview on the Today Show after the video, posted on Yahoo, went viral and received over 5 million hits on Youtube.
Here’s a clip of Micah and his parents on the Today Show:
