Along with the inspiration from Adam, I was inspired to write this post also by questions from leaders in the hunting industry concerning the importance of online video for hunting business marketing strategy. It seems most people always inquire about viral videos because of the appeal of having a target audience share a piece of video content across many channels with friends, family, and peers.

As I wrote in The Impact of Online Video in the Hunting Industry

:

Creating video that is shared amongst your target audience is an obvious goal for any online video strategy.

Often when we think of viral video the first things that come to mind are guys performing crazy stunts on You Tube or babies being caught saying funny things. It’s mostly America’s Funniest Home Video-type stuff.

But to create focused viral video there is a formula you should take so the results of your video going viral have the highest potential for actual return on your invested time and money.

The formula is from 3 Viral Video Ideas

:

(Clever Entertainment) + (Sharability) + (Target Audience) + (Product/Service/Personal Brand Tie-in) – (Push-Marketing) = (Successful Viral Video)

As you’ll see, some of these videos have all the successful elements of the viral video formula while others are missing some of the pieces.

Let’s take a look at 50 viral videos…

    Thanks Cory. I like putting these collections together. It gives me a chance to see some great videos and think about why they are successful.

    With all the questions coming in about online video and the hunting industry I thought it would be valuable to take a look at some of the successful videos in the hunting world and give thought to what others can do to build their own success.

    Interesting breakdown on why and how viral videos happen. It’s a phenomenon that I’ve never really understood.

    Still one of the coolest vids ever is that one of the cow moose nibbling the end of that guy’s arrow. Crazy!

    I don’t really understand it much either Tom. There are always videos that surprise as they gain popularity. I tried to point out a few of my observations of popular videos. I’ll continue looking into videos for future posts.

    @Adam – Thanks. It took some time, but was well worth it. I learned a lot about the videos and I hope everyone else found some value as well.

    @Jane – I’m glad you liked it! Most successful videos seem to follow that formula, but there are always videos that defy the odds and become popular with new formulas.
