The goal of this session is to demystify the “viral video” and demonstrate that there is in fact a science to creating viral hits. In this presentation, I will discuss my experiences producing viral videos that have received over 100 million views. I will share what I have learned about crafting a product message in the form of a viral video and maximizing video views. We'll analyze successful videos ranging from small hits (250k-500k views), medium hits (1M-5M views) and monster hits (10M+ views), breaking them down into the key “viral characteristics” that contributed to each video’s success. I will also discuss strategies for integrating product demos with these viral characteristics, and the trade-offs between including substantial product demos versus simple product placements. Finally, I will demonstrate how entrepreneurs on shoe-string budgets can employ these viral video strategies to gain widespread distribution for their products, by examining the adoption of my own product LaDiDa, which became a Top 10 Music iPhone App and has been used to create more than 20 million songs as a direct result of these viral video marketing techniques.

YouTube hosts one of the largest, most diverse collections of voices and faces ever seen or heard in human history. On Dec 1, 2011, YouTube launched a new design for managing that content—the biggest update since the site went online in 2005. Team members involved its design, research, and development will discuss the intent and impact of the project, the design principles and research techniques that shape the new YouTube, as well as some universal lessons of designing for all users. Hear it directly from the professionals behind the redesign.
