If you have not seen the Susan Boyle Video you've been living under a rock for the past week.
Susan Boyle was an unknown singer and unlikely contestant on Britains Got Talent. As she took the stage to fufill her mother's dieing wish, Susan was mocked and bood for her wishful ambition of becoming a professional singer. Most of the rude comments and boos were edited from the video you can watch by clicking the link above. You see, Susan was judged before anyone heard her sing.
Susan Boyle's story and inspiration has so caught on fire that in just about a week and as of this post her video has received over 16 million views and 89,000 comments with well wishes and encouragement to fufill her dreams. Folks, this is viral video marketing on steroids. In nearly the span of 24 hours alone the video received 10 million views.
Susan has litterally hundreds of fan sites that have popped up over night and requests to do an album as well as requests to come to the USA. This is the power of video. One video can change your life and potentially your business.
Will everyone that puts a video up on YouTube, Revver, Vimeo, etc. receive 16 million + views or let alone 1 million? Probably not, but this is an incredible example of how a simple video can change a life and maybe even the world.
