Guide: How to Get Over 100 Million Views on YouTube by Reposting Other Videos
In 2023, gaining massive traction on YouTube can be a game-changer for individuals and businesses alike. While creating original content is one approach, growth hacker Vin Clancy has cracked the code to achieving over 100 million views by reposting other people’s videos strategically. In this article, we will delve into the four main steps Vin Clancy recommends to harness the power of viral videos and attract your target audience.
Step 1: Research
Let’s get right down it, shall we? The first step is all about research. You need to compile a list of keywords that will make your target audience hooked in anticipation. Forget about going broad or chasing the elusive “viral” dream; that’s a recipe for disappointment. Instead, go niche. If you find some well-established channels or competitors serving a similar niche, ChatGPT can be your best friend to create a solid list of keywords from their content.
Once you have your keywords, find popular videos that make your audience go, “Hell yeah! This is for me!” TikTok is your playground for this task. Browse through videos using the “most likes” or “most recent” filters. Personally, I prefer the default search on desktop. We think more recent videos may be more viral, BUT there is so much garbage in “recent” search on Tiktok. Sure, the videos I choose may be older, but they have the most likes, comments, and are simply the best damn videos in the niche.
Step 2: Choose the Perfect Video
DO NOT take this part lightly – It affects everything. Look for a video that delivers value, preferably with a sticker or text plastered in the middle or top of the screen. It should make viewers hungry for knowledge.
And hey, visuals matter too! Find those videos with captivating visuals that scream, “Watch me!” Now, here’s the secret sauce: watch the damn video and ask yourself, “Did it actually deliver on the promise made by the sticker?” Be wary of those who copy each other or spew inaccurate advice. Avoid the self-promoters who pitch their service more than give value too. If the video checks all the boxes, download it and move on to the next step.
In one session you should try and download as many as possible, as the generic search function tends to change videos slowly, once you’ve grabbed them all they don’t change that fast so you’ll need to change the keyword; I think there are about 500 in this main search view but some people have said there’s more on infinite scroll.
Step 3: Craft a Killer Description and Give Credit Where Due
Pay attention, my friend, because this step is where the magic happens. Create an epic description for the video. Trust me, the title matters, despite what others might say. When I’ve poured my soul into crafting an enticing description, those videos skyrocket to the top of the charts. Sure, it takes time and effort, but the payoff is immense. Oh, and don’t forget to credit the original creator. In my experience, creators appreciate the exposure without any charges. I’ve amassed 100 million views and posted thousands of videos, and guess what? Not a single issue with giving credit where it’s due.
You should write the original description at the same time as you download the video. When I’ve focused on making a great description, these have been many of the top viewed videos on the channel.
But it’s time-consuming. Also don’t forget to always credit the original creator. In our experience we’ve found creators are happy that we push them out to more people without charging them. In our 100M views and thousands of posts, we have never had an issue with this.
Step 4: Post and Never Stop
Here’s the kicker: once you have all the links and killer descriptions, it’s time to unleash the beast. Send them to your team, and let them download and repost the videos on your clients’ channels. Now, listen closely, my friend. Consistency is key. Aim to post 5-10 videos per day. Trust me, I’ve tried posting more, but the algorithms punish you if you slow down. I’ve had to abandon accounts because of that. So, keep that content flowing like a river.
This method is your starter pack for growth, BUT this method does not work 100% of the time across all platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc).
Wanna know what does? Posting multiple types of content: text, images, and videos. I’ve doubled my reach and tripled my engagement using this method, and you can too!
In four simple steps, you can start to dominate the YouTube algorithms. By reposting viral videos strategically, I’ve unlocked over 100 million views and left my competitors scratching their heads. Now it’s your turn to harness this power. Research, choose wisely, craft compelling descriptions, and credit the original creators. Post consistently and watch your views skyrocket.
But remember, don’t stop there. Embrace the art of diverse content creation and conquer all platforms. Double your reach, triple your engagement, and become a force to be reckoned with.
