How to go viral? That's the "dream", right? Once you go viral, fame and money starts pouring into your life.... not exactly true but it could be the start of something HUGE. Here are some key components on how to create viral content.
Surprise your audience. Make them say “wait, what?”
You can do this with stunts, facts, unique stories and more.

What will make them immediately want to share this video with everyone? Something universally relatable, comedic, or out-of-the-box facts? Think about what makes you share a video instantly.

If you feel stunted in your creativity try asking yourself:
What hasn't been done?

What is a new take on a trend?
