The Best ‘Viral Video’ Content Providers in the VideoElephant Library

Posted by Elena Khrabrostina Murray on Aug 24, 2018 12:42:24 PM

What is a viral video?

‘Viral video’ is a phrase that is widely used today and usually generates a lot of hype. People almost feel like they must see the latest viral video. But what defines a viral video?

Wikipedia defines a viral video as “a video that becomes popular through a viral process of Internet sharing, typically through video sharing websites, social media and email”. Viral videos also usually have a short shelf-life but generate a large audience/volume of impressions within that time, and those are the key drivers for the demand for viral videos. Publishers want to grow their audience and increase impressions to generate more revenue. Viral videos help to achieve those goals.

Today we’re going to discuss how to increase views and how to drive traffic back to your own site with 5 simple steps. If you’ve ever struggled to get views on a video or post, hopefully this will give you some great insights into how you can improve engagement.

Why Does Video Marketing Work?

Posted by Elena Khrabrostina Murray on Jun 12, 2018 5:00:34 PM

Video content has never before played such a huge role in our day-to-day lives. Think about it, screens are now simply everywhere. From the smartphone in your pocket to your car dashboard, your day is filled with them.


Great video content is engaging and easy to digest, and video has a huge advantage over traditional text-based articles in explaining complex concepts. Our brains can process imagery much faster than words (we’re talking 60,000 times faster!) Not only that, but we can recall visual concepts much better than we can text. It has been proven that video grabs consumer attention than any other medium.

Posted by Johnny O'Neill on May 22, 2018 1:17:41 PM

In a joint blog post with our video player software partner JW Player, we untangle the common misconceptions about incorporating third-party videos into your content strategy.

Click To Play Or Fail To Click? Why Video Titles Matter.

Posted by Ericka Duffy on May 15, 2018 4:38:35 PM

The reason why some videos go viral and others remain largely anonymous is often less to do with the video itself and more to do with its title. Like any product, a good video needs a good title to sell itself effectively.

It’s important for content creators and content users alike to consider titles, whether for use on a website, mobile app, OTT or elsewhere. From examining how titles appear in a video player on a page, to how your internal teams can integrate them into their process, good titles can improve video adoption rates as well as click volumes.

With so much content flooding the digital space today, titles help users narrow their choices to these core values: Relevancy, Discoverability and Presentation.
