You know, making a movie is fairly difficult. However what is also hard is getting people to watch it. But even harder is getting people to buy it.

This is similar to ebay where your hoping random people see it, this is like Youtube. If it's something valuable, someone might stop and look at it, they may even "watch" (the ebay term) it. However it has to be cheaper than other people's things or at least cheap enough for someone to buy it.
"It has to be valuable enough to look, cheap enough to buy."
When applied to filmmaking you have to make something good or valuable. This can be a funny comedy, an inspiring drama or even a instructional how to video. These videos have value, not as in production value but as in value to the viewer. It's what the viewer gets from watching your video, this may be hard to measure but videos do give us something or else we wouldn't watch them. So Remember,
"Your videos can bring value to the viewers. That is how you achieve more viewers."
This is why how-to videos can easily rack up views on youtube, because it's easy to see the value in them. However the main problem with videos is getting people to view them, forget buying them. 'Cheap enough to buy' rarely applies to independent short films, maybe feature films. Most videos don't get enough views justified on their value. But I have no explanation for this.
