I got a call on Tuesday from a guy named Steve Call. He needed a website because his YouTube video, Jazz for Cows, was going viral:
So I spent the afternoon building him a website. Slowly but surely, all the pieces fell into place. I used a vanilla installation of WordPress for the site, and even used the default Twentyeleven theme. I added a striped background, worked on the right sidebar a bit, and started filling it out with content I got online and from Steve. So far, it’s coming along very nicely. You can check it out at www.newhot5.com.
After that we put ads on the video with Google AdSense and went after the copycats on YouTube who had re-uploaded the video and called it their own. The video has now been featured on Conan, The Today Show, and Good Morning America, and the momentum keeps building. It’s a pretty awesome situation.
If you’re like Steve and find yourself in the market for a website like this one for whatever reason, give me a call or shoot me an email via my contact form. I’d love to help out however I can, whether or not you have a viral video.
