Great Article. You are providing some great tips on making videos. I especially enjoyed tip 6 letting people know. I think a lot of people don't take advantage of this.

Ken Barlow

Hi,
Thanks for this article. Very helpful. I don't fully agree with Tip 4 though. If the video is good enough and funny then why shouldn't it go viral. Rhett and Link do this perfectly.
Also this video is pretty funny. It's like a 'how to' video with a difference.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKR3KifUBMI

Not sure if their site gets many hits because of this though!

You should use www.socialkik.com to buy Youtube video Views... we purchased 10,000 Youtube video Views for our youtube video and we're quite satisfied with the results. The video appears now on the top of the search results on Youtube and Google, which brought a LOT of traffic to our site.

I have gotten mixed results from both consumer cameras and expensive ones, and I have to say while the higher quality video is great, nothing feels as comforting as a home video. Just my two cents.

Thanks for the tips! I especially like the one about honesty. That has been very important to me from the start. I've been on youtube for almost a year now. I post videos of me singing and playing guitar. I mostly sing original songs. I have a small following of loyal fans. My song "Tell me Why" was featured on girlslife.com, so I know I'm not bad. All my videos have an average of about 500 views, and the most one has is around 2,350. I'm just wondering if you, or anyone could help me out with getting more views. My youtube channel is www.youtube.com/lilbitguitarobsessed. Thanks, and i'll definitely try some if your tips!
