You could even go ahead and post an advert about a product with a certain age group in mind like lets say the young persons scene and make sure you use something that is currently taking the young persons scene by storm then sit back and watch it spread like wild fire.

 

Another way to maximize on this mode of marketing is making sure your videos are easy to find.
