Creating online content for the Internet isn’t always easy. Going viral is another feat altogether. On a video-sharing platform like YouTube, there are lots of great videos that deserve millions of views while there are less than stellar ones that have already reached infamy. How can creators like us turn ideas into something the world will watch?

First, it’s all about the quality. When you have good material, like a really inspiring story for a short film, you have to bring it to life through the video quality, acting, and all other technical aspects. This doesn’t necessarily mean spending thousands of dollars. It’s more about crafting your content with great care that will make people see and understand your message.
Next, think about your audiences. Will they understand what you’re putting out there? Do you think they’ll be able to last through the entire video? Viral videos have reached their status because audiences have found something that they can share with others. Whether it’s a funny line or an interesting cover of a song, you have to do something that will make them press that share button for the rest of their network to see.
