How To Make Gaming Videos Go Viral on YouTube

For making a viral video, this is something I’ve just stumbled upon, but it seems possible. Some of my video gaming videos have gotten a significant amount of traffic on my channel. They were new video game releases and expansion packs.

This is something that works across the board for games that aren’t already out. For example, Black Ops 3 Zombies is one part of a game coming out. Right now I’m filming this, the game will not be released for 5 months.

Here there are videos on Black Ops 3 that have millions of views. If you watch this video, it includes no footage from Black Ops 3. It includes low quality footage from Black Ops 2 while talking about Black Ops 3.

I’m impressed at how well this strategy is working because it hits on a key thing in YouTube. There are a lot of people looking for Zombies videos. There are no Black Ops Zombies videos with footage yet. What you’ll notice is a lot of the videos have lots of views and they were uploaded a week ago. This trend shows you it’s easy to make a viral video by just finding what people are talking about.

You have things that you do know about. You have things that you are excited about. New things like an Apple Watch. An Apple iPhone whatever you are excited about coming up in the future other people are excited about that too.

You can use a Google Hangout video and talk about something that’s going to come out. You can have a great shot of getting a viral video out of that just because of supply and demand. If there are few videos out there, you have a better chance. Videos on Zombies are immediately popular because there are no videos of Black Ops 3 Zombies yet. Anyone can just put up a video and just talk about Black Ops 3 Zombies. If you want to make a viral video, that’s an easy way to do it. What you want to do is just pay attention to what you’re already excited about and make a video about it.

There’s a big first mover advantage. These people that posted videos a month ago have tons of views. What you’ll notice is the video 2 weeks ago have a lot less views. For videos that are newer, if you want to do well, you have to have a little bit more information. If you can be one of the first people talking about what people on YouTube are looking for, you can make a viral video with little effort and no high quality needed.
