Do you know that you can also post videos in VK - the Russian Facebook? Yes - as you guessed it by now - VK, the social giant, can also be used for marketing your videos.
Did you know that Russians are the most active social network users for anywhere in the world? More active even than Britain's 15 year old girls who Tweet their every thought and Instagram every cat, food or sunset they see. And yet they aren't on the globally popular sites like Facebook and Twitter, all 100 million users (yes one hundred million!) are on the social site VK.
But that doesn't mean that it isn't available to everyone - in fact, you can log in using your existing Facebook details or simply entering in an email address and password.
So you want to be VKontakte famous?
- Do something original. You're not going to be the next big thing by copying what somebody else did. You might make a bit of money if you're riding a popular trend wave, but it won't last. Take all those zillions of Harlem Shake videos for example. Sure, they were hot for a minute, but if you jumped on the bandwagon late you probably only got a few dozen views before you fell out of the spotlight.
- If you're hoping to go viral, make sure your video grabs people's attention in the first 10-15 seconds. The Internet has the attention span of a goldfish with ADD, so you need to make a good hook if people are going to watch your video in its entirety.
- In order to make VKontakte a viable source of income, you need to generate a regular stream of content that will attract subscribers. Just one video isn't likely to bring in a steady stream of earnings, so it's best to plan your videos as part of an ongoing series.
