One viral video can change the course of any company regardless of size and the product it sells. HubSpot compiled the Top 15 viral ads of 2013 based on views. The "Baby and Me" campaign for Danone Group's Evian mineral water finished the year with 70 million views. Statista data shows consumption of Evian water gradually decreased from from the fall of 2009 to 2013. But between September 2013 and March 2014 (after the video was published), consumption increased by 8.4 percent.
Marketing executives cannot bank on one viral video. Campaigns must be sustained and engaging to current and perspective customers. Katie Clem, who made the viral video of her daughter's reaction to the announcement of a Disneyland trip in 2011, told the New York Times it's all about luck. She went to bed that night and the next morning her life was forever changed.
You can increase views of your videos by implementing the following tried-and-true ideas into your productions.

Every customer a business interacts with is different. Business owners have to realize that you cannot connect with every customer in the same way. Many business owners are starting to realize the importance of improving multi channel customer service. Creating exceptional customer service is something that every business strives for, but few actually seem to do really well. A good first step is to identify customer preferences and working to develop strategies for appropriate means of communication over the multiple channels in which you interact with your customers.
Many companies are starting to use social media as a main platform of communicating with their customers. Just about every brand you can imagine is on Twitter these days. However, only 10 percent of all companies are replying to customer questions on Twitter within an acceptable time period. Most customers wait on average of 5 hours from a response on social media. One suggestion to help provide better service via social media is to have a dedicated customer service handle that is separate from the regular social handle for your business.
Does your business have a dedicated customer service handle for its social channels?

Is audience loyalty important to your blog, business or brand? Are you wondering what are the secrets of building a raving fan base?
Publishing a few blog posts and promoting them to social networks may bring some traffic, but building a loyal audience that really listens to what you say, isn't something that happens overnight.
In a recent study of 580,000 articles on 2000 websites, ChartBeat found that 55 percent of readers spend fewer than 15 seconds actively on a page. And those that were clicked on and engaged with were news related such as Edward Snowden, Syria, etc.
The study also found that the most clicked on but least engaged with articles were generic with click bait titles with words such as: Top, Best, Biggest. etc.
Which shows that click through does not always mean a high engagement rate or attention.
So the big question comes in "how to build a loyal web audience?".
Take a look at the infographic below, produced by Quicksprout, illustrating 5 tips on how to build raving fans and improve your return on investment.
