How to get 100,000+ views for your viral movie

Just posted an article to my blog/newsletter which gives you some insights into how those "viral" YouTube movies get 100,000 views and more. It's not all legit either:

          Great Info....

          Video marketing takes effort. Viral Marketing takes effort and creativity along with various other resources.

          I found your article very informative. I have a video that was released 7 months ago on Break that has over 1.1 million views now. It was featured within 10 hours of the upload and went to number one within 18 hours.

          Too bad I changed my mind on the niche I was targeting. My ethics and morals took over. I can't look back now though. I feel better and realize that getting over 1 million views is attainable.

                Theres a lot of gaming the system these days to obtain millions and millions of video views.

                Not all videos of course, unless your already a pop star or an idiot.. lol (jk)

                Theres countless bots programs out there that are easily obtainable to go the black hat route.

                Obviously there are ramifications to using such programs, but if your trying to monitize your videos, at the end of the day you'll only be fooling yourself when you see millions of views and no income. lol

                  I tend to disagree with you here. If you can get 1000's of looks, fake or not, it is to some degree , an indicator of authority of credibility. Obviously, a video that shows nothing or doesn't have a call to action won't do well. But I can personally attest that if you can get to the top of youtube, you will get far more natural views (and make money) than if you did it the white hat way. Usually I focus on CPA marketing whenever I have marketed with video and have made a lot of money on some and no money on others.

                  Now, is this for everyone? Of course not. There are all sorts of problems that will occur and you will have to expand your knowledge to how to locate proxies for one thing b/c it is likely that your account will get banned. By then, the damage has been done and the money has been made and you simply move on. That is how it works.

                  So to state that millions of fake views (which takes you to the top) won't make you money is actually not exactly true.

                    I agree whole heartedly.

                    When My video went to the top....I used no bots, no black hat (I don't even know what all goes into that).
                    Just good marketing and a good video.
