How to Make a Viral Video

Searching for new ways of promoting your business, program, or event?  In today’s technology driven, social media infused world, tech is a great way to boost those mentioned above.  One fun and budget friendly avenue is to make a short video in the hopes that is extensively viewed on YouTube and shared widely via social media and email, commonly known as going ‘viral’.

Eepybird Studios, a professional viral video ad company, suggest nonprofits use viral videos as a mechanism to help spread their message. The company has a Viral Video Toolkit for nonprofits available online, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Inspired by Eepybird Studios, The Cascade Alliance decided to try to make our own viral video to promote the St. Vinnie’s book department so we could create a how-to for our members. With this in mind, we tried to mimic viral videos of book dominos inspiration from Rube Goldberg contraptions.  Check out our first attempt below!
