I had a fun idea yesterday that only took a few minutes this morning – create my first viral video. It might sound like a stupid goal, or maybe even an impossible goal…but I’m going to try. My plan right now is to promote the video using Twitter, Facebook, and the Blogosphere. I tried to create something that I thought would catch people’s attention and then provide some humor (hopefully). Remember, a viral video doesn’t get popular because of SEO, it’s all social media baby!
I’ve chiseled-out a small budget for sponsored tweets as well so I can have a few big-name bloggers Tweet this around. Any more ideas are welcomed!
Okay, now here’s where you come in. If you want to help me make this viral (and only do it if you think the video is funny) please send it along to friends, family, anyone else you think would enjoy it. The idea is to trick someone and I’ve already sent this around to a bunch of friends who thought it was hilarious. Also if you could please please please vote for it on Digg I will gladly add a “do follow” link to your site in a future post. I think we all take life too seriously sometimes and if this video makes you smile, laugh, or chuckle it will have achieved its goal.
Okay, so I’m guessing you want to see the video – here it is:
For me making this video and trying this first shot at an 100% social media advertising campaign will be an adventure. Sure, it probably won’t become viral, I’m a realist, but if I never tried how would I fail and learn? Either way this was worth the 3-minutes to make. If you thought the video was funny and really want to help me out please vote for it on Digg. It might not take too many Digg votes to get this one going and in return I’d be happy to add a link to your site in a future post (do follow)!
Thanks in advance and let me know what you think. Feel free to be mean if you don’t like the video, I can take it 🙂
