I was sitting here looking at a couple of youtube videos when this came to me. This is so simple that a couple of sentances will sum it up. It's not really a new method, because large websites have been doing this for years, but it is a nice little twist 1: Build a little website where people can submit videos (make sure you put a disclaimer on the site and that they understand that the video will be viewed by the public) 2: Put up flyers in laundry mats, stores, etc. saying something like "submit the funniest video and win $100" (or whatever type of video you think will go viral) 3: Wait for people to submit videos 4: Choose the best video, or have a few people vote. 5: Post the video on youtube and set your keywords and taglines. 6: Monetize it, and you're done. If the video is good enough, it will go viral with just a little bit of initial promotion.
