How to Block the Windows 10 Upgrade


I have been following YouTube and YouTube stars since my childhood. I have noticed some common aspects in all the viral YouTube videos. While, I cannot guarantee you success if you follow these points but, these will help you to stand above the mediocre ones for sure. So let the journey begin.

YouTube video basics

These are some of the basic points that every newbie Youtuber should follow from their start.

Video Title

The title of the video acts like a clickbait. It should be tempting enough so that the viewer clicks on the video. Every viral video has this one aspect common. Let me give you an example to clarify more.

Normal Title : Miley Cyrus lost 20 pounds in a month for her upcoming video.

Click Bait Title: This pop star lost 20 pounds for her new video and that too without dieting.

You see the difference. The first title is a normal title and conveys the main plot in the title itself. The second one leaves the viewer curious to find out who the pop star is, how did she lose 20 pounds without dieting, how many hours did she sweat in the gym?

The chances are that the viewer will click on the second title more.


The title and the thumbnail are the two things that we see before playing any video on YouTube. It is necessary that both of these should leave the viewer curious to find out what’s there in the video. You don’t need to be a Photoshop expert to make tempting photos for your videos. Just pick a good picture from the internet (creative commons) that’s it. The thumbnail should be attractive and should catch the attention of the viewer instantly.

Intro Video:

So now you have managed to catch the users attention to play your video, but, what after that. If your video turns out to be good in the first 5-10 seconds, it is good otherwise, your viewer may dislike your video. So, it is very important to add a good starting intro to your videos. This intro should reflect your personal branding. You can hire a person for as less as $5  (Fiverr) to make a good intro video for you. The best part, there are many online and offline tools that you can use to make a good intro video for your YouTube video. This intro maker list will help you for sure. You can use this list to explore the finest free animation intro video creators in the market.


Your video reflects your talent in front of a global audience. In todays tech gen world where we have the 4K displays, it is very important to maintain a competing quality of your YouTube video too. Use an entry level DSLR camera in the starting. Also, the audio of your video will play a major role. DLSRs don’t have a crisp audio. To maintain the audio quality you need to have a mic. If you have a low budget, you can use the noise reduction softwares that will remove the noise from your videos.

Audacity is the best free tool available in the market. Use this audacity tutorial to set up audio for your upcoming videos.So these are some of the few points that you need to consider while making YouTueb videos. In the end, your talent will decide the fate of your videos.

Repurpose Your Content And Start A Viral Wave


How annoying is it when you stare at the screen hoping that inspiration will come and slap you across the face. This is commonplace for most bloggers, even the big expert gurus that always have fresh and updated content.

The difference is they have probably had their content written a month or two prior to the release. Also in most cases, other people will write content for them in the form guest posts or from a virtual assistant.

For the biggest majority, most of us will not have a big budget for our niche site that we can tap into. What can we do to find ideas for content?

Super Internet Marketer Luke Maguire has been busy over the last year. He has been researching what his customer’s struggles are and came up with a tool that will solve them. Out of all the information, he gathered he has whittled it down to 8 pain points.

From this data, he created his latest software Octosuite (check out the reviews), which is a social media management tool. It’s not like the average social media tool, it is created with you in mind.

When you stare at the screen blankly looking at the screen now you can load up Octosuite.

When inside simply choose the platform you would like to search and let it find your content ideas. You can choose from Facebook, Twitter or Reddit to name a few.

The clever thing is that the results generated are sorted by how viral the piece of content was.

You don’t just have a boring list of content, you have a list of super viral content.

From within Octosuite, you have the ability to rebrand this content as your own by changing text, links or even by adding a filter to the image. This makes it unique to you!

Content that has gone viral in the past will always be able to go viral again, that is if you plant enough seeds to get the ball rolling.

I suggest you take your new content a little bit further. Once you have selected your piece of content I would suggest that you create a video on the topic. It doesn’t have to be a professional production, you just want to make sure that it is valuable and watchable.

Keep it under 5 minutes because when you start to go longer without professional editing your watch time analytics might decrease. People will get bored staring at you in the same position for any more than 5 mins.

When you post to YouTube you can give it a little push by sending social signals or telling your friends to share. Don’t just sit and wait, you need to get it out there. Once the viral wave starts you will have a hard time stopping it.

I predict a traffic explosion!

You can get so much more out of this one content idea by simply creating a blog post, converting the video to audio to share as a podcast, or even piece the images together to share on Pinterest.

Repurposing your content is a great way to get your content seen by more eyes and with more eyes on your product or service… that means more money for you!
