Just an example of content going viral from the SWFL, a high-school basketball league in Florida. They posted this remarkable footage of a high-school basketballer tossing a referee on YouTube. YouTube is a great tool to build awareness around your brand, especially if you can grab some viral success.
With over 300k views and national coverage on Huffington Post & ESPN their small community brand just got a lot of buzz.
Not the best image of their league but it shows how the crowd decides what goes viral. It is very difficult to manufacture those numbers for a single campaign but it demonstrates if you keep providing content you may get lucky once in a while.
It definitely took the SWFL guys by surprise…
Insane how this story has taken off nationally, currently #12 most viewed vid on Youtube allday (334K views) http://youtu.be/AgxjZIN2PAE
