HOW to make your video go viral on YouTube. The secret is…there isn’t one. It’s about celebrity endorsements and geting it on the telly. (One other thing – do all experts on the internet always have this chap’s accent? In the 1970s and 80s, all computer experts sounded like Hal from 2001 A Space Odyssey or Speak ‘n’ Spell.
