Most of the time, an entertaining or compelling property of a video – regardless of its subject – causes it to spread like wildfire via email to friends, or embedded on personal web pages or blogs.
What is this property? How do you entertain or hold attention? It may be a confusing new media landscape, but the good news is very old rules of grabbing attention still apply. Here are some of the oldest:
1) Tickle the funny bone. No matter the product or service, chances are there is a way to use humor to talk about it. Look around your subject for ways to draw unusual comparisons to everyday things. For this, you may wish to hire a writer, or look within your own business history for amusing stories you can adapt to your clip.
