is your question, how to make it go viral, or how to get a lot of views?

almost anything that is designed to go viral never does. virality has an element of unexpectedness that is usually not planned.

if you want to get a lot of views .... sure, virool is an option, or you can just advertise on youtube, there's some tricks to keep the cost down ... leverage your network, ask people to share, give people a freebie for sharing .. etc. ..

Vidiq.com also has YouTube management similar to Hootsuite for social media.

As many have suggested, making a video go viral is not as simple as following a 5 step program. Viral videos have many similar elements to them, and many folks have correlated those similarities to a formula.

I think bottom line is that the masses need to be able to relate to it, either through current events, or three of the most powerful things humans react to: sex, humor, or fear.

Check out www.spottrender.com, it's a cloud based software for A/B testing and market research for videos online. I would suggest making an account and testing your video to see audience reaction. You can do it for free by crowdsourcing the participants, or the platform has options to get you people. That will help you fine-tune it to be the most compelling and engaging, and a step closer to viral.

I hope that helps!
