Viral videos center on your uniqueness and creativity. Brainstorm possibilities with trusted colleagues, aiming for video content that is:

Short
Under 5-minutes is the sweet spot that keeps videos digestible and easily replayed.

Funny
Carefully consider your target audience and what they might find funny. Reveal your fun-side, but keep it on-point to prevent offending clients (and damaging your reputation). Share it on social media, getting the ball rolling.

Original
Make competitors say, “Wish I’d thought of that!” Creativity is respected. Optimize search results with such a distinctive, memorable title that it’s easy to find, driving traffic.

Provocative
Though the industry maintains a conservative persona, sex sells. Albeit in moderation.

Memorable
Videos that help clients emotionally connect yet showcase your success keep your brand at the forefront.
