One viral video can change the course of any company regardless of size and the product it sells. HubSpot compiled the Top 15 viral ads of 2013 based on views. The “Baby and Me” campaign for Danone Group’s Evian mineral water finished the year with 70 million views. Statista data shows consumption of Evian water gradually decreased from from the fall of 2009 to 2013. But between September 2013 and March 2014 (after the video was published), consumption increased by 8.4 percent.
Marketing executives cannot bank on one viral video. Campaigns must be sustained and engaging to current and perspective customers. Katie Clem, who made the viral video of her daughter’s reaction to the announcement of a Disneyland trip in 2011, told the New York Times it’s all about luck. She went to bed that night and the next morning her life was forever changed.
You can increase views of your videos by implementing the following tried-and-true ideas into your productions.
