  1. 1
    Start a club or Facebook group/page about something that interests you.
    When making this decision, it is important to choose a subject that you are really passionate about. If the topic doesn't interest you, then you will not fully give yourself to the project. Think of it as if you are the boss. This means you will need to know every aspect of the topic so that your employees (or fans) can come to you with concerns and you can provide them with expert information about your topic.

  2. 2
    Use humor to make videos on YouTube to get your face out there on the Internet.
    When creating your videos ensure that you are being creative, and present something unique from everyone else's. If you copy what other people are doing, in the same style, you'll get lost in the crowd, and no one will notice your. When making the videos, make sure they are short and sweet, which will capture the audience's attention. Longer videos may capture the audience for a moment, but then you will usually lose them part way through the video.

  3. 3
    Join Facebook and begin to send people friend requests, letting them know about you and what your interests are in life.
    By doing this you will get friends who are into the same things, which in turn will help you to expand your presence on the Internet. Also, when becoming friends with people having the same interests, use their friends list to collect more friends, so you can branch out even further on the Internet. Also while on Facebook, advertise and post links of YouTube channel or group or page you have started to get more people to watch your videos.

  4. 4
    Work to become popular on Facebook.
    Your page will be your personal outlet to the world, other than YouTube. Using Facebook allows you to interact with people personally, and increase your public image on the Internet. By making yourself more likable on Facebook, you will become more popular with people on Facebook. Social media is important for getting people who aren't even your friends to look at your page, which will lead to them becoming your friends or followers. The more likes you have, the better. (You can read more advice on how to become a Facebook sensation in the section below.)

  5. 5
    Join a fan club instead of making one.
    This can prove to be an easier process than creating a fan club. While in the fan club, answer people's questions so that they can develop a relationship with you on advice, which in turn will make them come back for more and more information about the subject. While answering, remember to remain kind to the people who are asking questions or need information on the subject. Do not use foul language when addressing anyone in the fan club, for it will make you look unprofessional and even turn people away from coming back to you for information. Remember when in the fan club that it is not yours, and that you can be kicked out for not being respectful.

  6. 6
    Spread the word to your friends and family about the fan page, or anything else you are involved in on the Internet.
    If you have a YouTube Channel, then send the links to your family so they'll become permanent fans of your creations online. When telling one family member or friend it will spread to others, helping you to create a bigger fan base. This will help you to become known as someone who is expressing your creativity on the Internet. If nobody knows what you're doing, then you cannot become a sensation, so use your family and friends as the foundation to your success.

  7. 7
    When posting on your YouTube channel, fan club or social network, ensure to always tell the truth about whatever topic you are discussing.
    When talking about anything on the Internet, it is important to be truthful. If your information is false, then someone online can easily find out the truth, which will keep you from being known as a reliable source of information. If you lie on your page, it leaves you with a bad reputation, causing people to avoid your page and spread the word regarding your wrongdoings.

  8. 8
    Choose the platform/s you want to use to become an Internet sensation.
    The most common outlet people use on the Internet is music, whether they are creating their own music or just singing an already produced song to reveal their vocal skills to the world. If you choose to use comedy instead, it works more effectively in a video than just writing jokes online. If you want to use humor, YouTube is the best place to create and post your content online for viewing. If poetry is your thing, there a lot of poets successfully using the Internet to express their poetic genius, from YouTube, eZines, poetry forums, blogs and personal websites.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    Learn your material before recording the videos you want to publish on the Internet.
    A lot of people tarnish their reputations by not being rehearsed and polished. If you plan on performing a song by another artists, make sure you are sure of the music, and have the lyrics down. If you are doing a parody on a music video, then you will be fine to use your own lyrics in the music or content that you are producing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  10. 10
    Include famous people in whatever you are doing.
    Putting someone's name in the video will help you to get noticed, by either that person or at least people in that person's entourage. If you are a singer, then it would be good to not only give a shout out to the original artist, but also to the producers and composers of the person's music, in an attempt to get noticed by them. This can help you open the door to a lot of opportunities. Many YouTubers and bloggers have gotten a lot of big breaks by putting famous people in their videos or at least acknowledging them in their works to get their attention online.

Anything is possible to capture on video.

    In addition, when people Google the videos of other people you have made a video parody to. You will also reap the benefits because your video will be connected to theirs, and they'll view your video as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Attend YouTube gatherings.
    Fans who meet the video channel creators they are following, will more likely become faithful followers and die-hard fans of your videos because they've made a personal connection with you.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Be open to the possibility of making joint videos with other YouTube channels.
    Two or more creative minds are better than one.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Keep on creating fresh material.
    Nothing turns away YouTube viewers faster than when there is nothing new for them to view. Keep your juices flowing, keep working and be on your toes.

    Acknowledge and use the benefits of other social media, such as Twitter and Facebook.
    Link your YouTube channel to all your social media accounts, and put a links in your email signature to draw more of your own friends to your YouTube channel. Likewise, connect to your other social media accounts because they have their own following, thus expanding your fan base.

How to become a Facebook sensation

  1. 1
    First of all, create a Facebook page.
    Use keywords on your Facebook page.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Every now and then (you should always be current and up to date), depending on the skill of yours that you want to popularize on Facebook, put in an excerpt (of a novel), a video teaser (of an indie film), or a finished room (of a unique house you are constructing) to keep your fan page followers curious and up-to-date on your current projects.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Let people know you exist.
    Urge your friends to like your page, and ask them to recommend it to others, increasing your presence on Facebook news. A Facebook secret �" the more you interact with other people of Facebook �" not just 'liking' things they say, but commenting on their posts, increases your visibility.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Do a shout out on your page every so often.
    This is especially useful if there is a certain event in your community happening which has a connection to you or your skill.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Facebook is flexible.
    You can use written word, video and photography. Use these three forms of media to express your thoughts and projects on Facebook.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Whatever you do on Facebook, generating a lot of SLCs (shares, likes and comments) is the name of the game, as long as you don't embarrass or dishonor yourself.
    The people you interact with are the people who will see your posts in their news feed. The more interactions, the more views for you.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Be conscious about the time that you post.
    The majority of Facebook posts are read between 6 and 9 pm, when people are home and surfing the Internet. So if you posted before or after this time, chances are people will miss it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Delete unpopular posts.
    If in one hour, a post of yours does not work out and does not generate the desired number of SLCs, take care of your broken heart (especially if you really care deeply about that post), and delete that post. A lot of times, some projects which you do not really care about will skyrocket to the top, but work which you dedicate yourself to will not create a buzz with the public. You should be prepared for this reality.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    Ask questions on Facebook that need to be answered.
    People like it when they see intriguing questions that they can comment on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  10. 10
    Your posts should be every two days.
    This is just enough posts to keep on people's mind. If you post too often, you'll experience a downturn of SLCs. So when you post, it should be meaty and substantial, not just a filler of people's pages.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  11. 11
    Pose with celebrities or landmarks.
    This is really silly, but you will get a lot of likes and people will take an interest if they recognize the people or places in your photos. It may be sad, but it is just the way people react to famous people or things.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  12. 12
    SLC other people's Facebook posts.
    Share the love because it is not only about you. And if you like someone else's posts, they will be more inclined to like yours as well.

How to become a Twitter sensation

  1. 1
    Have a recognizable avatar.
    It is your identity on twitter, so make it really unique and be sure that it represents what you stand for. Since an avatar is small, your face should stand out in it and the background should be symbolic of what you do best.

  2. 2
    Tweet during peak hours.
    According to scientific studies, the bulk of twitter traffic is between 9 am and 6 pm, so tweet during office hours for optimal exposure.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Due to the nature of tweets, if you miss them, you are actually going to miss them forever.
    Hence, it is wise if you are the tweeter, to post the same message two or three times during the day, so your followers will be more likely to see them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Let your Twitter account complement your other social media accounts.
    Twitter is a very nice start because first you provide a summary, then you provide a link. The link could be internal within Twitter, but it could also be a link to your Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, or YouTube account.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Your Twitter profile biography should be concise and effective.
    Just say the right words to describe who you are and what you do, and also provide a link to other websites and social media that promotes you. You can throw in a quotation or two that you feel represents who you are.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Send @messages to top Tweeters.
    If you send an @message to Oprah Winfrey, anyone following you would see it. There is also a chance Oprah will respond to your @message, thus millions will get to see it, to your delight. This is instant publicity for your tweets.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Pose questions on your Twitter that will challenge people to answer.
    Even the silliest question like "Do you like the new hairdo of Vin Diesel?" will get people to react angrily or amusingly. You will be surprised at their reactions, and positive or negative, it can be to your benefit.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Let your Twitter be an encyclopedia of information.
    Be witty, especially with data that is connected to your industry. Like if you are a musician, do some research on music trivia.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    Get into a niche of information and focus on this.
    Again if you are a musician, do not just pose tweets about music trivia. Be more specific, and delve into music trivia of the 80s and 90s, for example. When you are heavy into this, people who desire music data from these periods will look for your tweets.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  10. 10
    Post pictures with your tweets.
    Pictures go a long way attracting attention. When twitter allows you 140 characters, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Remember when pursuing Internet fame, you will need to put a lot of energy into the task. If your heart is not into what you are doing, then you will fail. The content of all your projects needs to be original, and never copied. If you copy someone else's material and claim it as yours, not only will you be discovered, as it's so easy to do this online, but you can be charged with plagiarism. The more truthful you are, the more your fans you will trust what you do. Once you have become a sensation, remember that it is not the end of the journey. You will need to keep up the pace with everything you do from that day forward in order to remain a person of interest on the Internet.

If you have tried on your own, but had no success in becoming a sensation, then don't give up just yet. Another good way to get noticed is to team up with someone else with the same interests as you, and get your name associated with theirs on the Internet.
