YouTube Tips: How To Market Via YouTube

The Secret Strategies Behind Many “Viral” Videos via TechCrunch has an awesome list of tips and techniques to make your YouTube videos a success. Here is a quick run down of some of those tips:

Making the Video: - 15 – 30 second videos - Ensure the video can be remixed over and over again - The video can’t be a blatant advertisement - Add the shock factor - Make your headline fake - Sex works

Reaching Most Viewed Page: - Tell Blogs - Tell Forums - MySpace pages - Facebook friends and share features - Use email lists - Tell your friends

After you reach the most viewed page, then you can change your title, optimize your thumbnail image, increase your comments, push out more videos right away, and uniquely tag videos together.
