BACKGROUND Hello everyone. I'm fairly new to IM and have very little experience. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science so I learn fairly quick. I messed with CPA on facebook for about a month and managed to make around $600. Facebook's security is really hard to keep up with and they shut my accounts down so now I'm back to scratch. Anyways, as I slowly build my fb accounts again, I thought I'd do something with youtube. Basically I have a video that is short, sweet, original, to the point, and hilarious. I am positive this video can and will go viral. I have zero experience with youtube and have been doing a lot of research. GOAL #1 - Reach 1,000,000 views My first goal is obtaining 1,000,000 views. The first step is making the front page of youtube. Once I'm on the front page, everything will take care of itself and all I'll have to do is sit back and watch the views roll in. The Plan In order to make the front page, you need to get views FAST. So I'm hoping since the video is good enough, it will have a domino affect and spread like a virus once enough people have seen it. Actions - I will create an account with some social bookmarking sites such as Reddit, 9gag, and funnyjunk and post the video there. - I will make a facebook event with an attention grabbing title, provide the link in the description and invite all my friends and have my friends invite their friends and they invite their friends and so on.. - I will post the video on big time facebooker's walls and spam it on big time youtubers pages. - My sister has some popular tublr blogs and she will also post the video there. - I will either fiverr a bunch of comments, likes, and favorites if me and my friends can't do it ourselves. If I am missing some obvious methods to get views, please let me know ASAP. I'm trying to avoid using any bots as I want this to be as legit as possible and want REAL views. Today's Plan - Sign up with social bookmarking sites. - Research what works best for keywords and titles for the video - Research how many views/likes/comments/favorites I need for this to make the front page - Research when is the best day/time to upload a video? - Edit/Modify this plan if need be. I won't be uploading today since I have to learn a lot more about this if I want to be successful. But i'll be looking to upload in a few days when I feel that I'm prepared. Please feel free to leave any questions/comments/tips/support negative or positive, I don't care. Eventually I want to bring in the $ with this video and will worry about that once the video goes viral.
