Tips from a channel with 285 million views

Sometimes it seems like any ol’ kitten with a webcam has a billion YouTube hits. How does the little critter pull it off? That kitten didn’t go to college or part of Chicago production companies! There are black hat tricks to building up view counts, but what’s the point in faking it? Instead, lets see how one seeming average YouTube channel made a multimillion hit presence with homemade hip hop.

Mac Miller, a 20 year old from Pittsburgh was pulling in social fans before he was ever signed to a record label – an accomplishment achieved entirely from his online success. For some people, YouTube videos are a business in itself. Miller used his YouTube video production to start a business and is gradually becoming a rather popular rap star. And the Viral Blog broke down some of Miller’s habits to give you an idea of some viral video best practices.

Target a Broad Demographic
Speaking to a niche audience for is a great way to start a following for Chicago production companies, but don’t make videos that exclude possible people from joining your audience. The more likable your material, the more universal and less specific it is, the likelier it is that a stranger stumbling upon your material will like, share, and look for more of your work in the future.

Make Videos People Want To Share
Think about what your audience wants to see and give it to them. Try doing some research on the people who are already fans and see what else they are reading, what they’re sharing with their own social followers, and start a conversation with them. Feed content to them, yours or others, and try to develop a relationship with them such that they’ll be curious about the Chicago production companies content you are sending them.

Find a Passion
Being successful and making popular online content takes some work and patience. Sometimes you’ll have responsibilities even when you don’t want to work. That’s when you need to fall back on your love for the video production topic and get through the tasks at hand. Even dream jobs have paper work.
