YouTube has forever changed how people go about finding information or even entertainment. If you want to learn how to grill a T-bone steak, you don’t need to call your dad or read a book; search YouTube, and you get a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it. If you are bored with nothing to watch on TV, you can easily lose hours of your day getting caught up in watching parodies on YouTube.
Tips on getting started and succeeding
1. Your camera
Purchase a decent video camera or webcam.
2. Your studio
Make sure the area you plan to do your recording is clean and clutter-free. There is nothing worse than seeing a bunch of clutter behind the person on camera to distract your viewers.
3. Light it up
You want to make sure that you offer plenty of light for your recording sessions. You will need to invest in some good lights so that your face, body, and background are well lit. Make sure the lighting looks natural. Do not point a desk lamp straight at your face so that you end up with a huge, harsh glowing shiny spot in the middle of your forehead. Diffuse the light so that it’s soft looking on the face.
4. Look the part
Dress and be groomed for the part. Whether you are doing parodies, teaching tutorials, or just trying to get your name and face out there, you need to dress appropriately.
Make sure your hair is styled and not hiding your face. Wear some makeup even if it’s to conceal imperfections. A little makeup goes a long way, but too much can put off your audience.
Your clothing should be clear clean and not too revealing. You do not necessarily want to appeal only to one sex by using sex appeal. Just think, some viewers are mothers, fathers, and even grandparents, so you don’t want to flaunt “your goods” to the world.
5. Be original
Offer something unique to your audience. Please give them a reason to watch your tutorial over Miss Competitor, which already has 100k subscribers.
6. Observe the competition
If you want to be the next makeup tutorial guru, watch videos of your competitors. Discover why they are so popular and take notes. How do they market their YouTube channel? What works for them to gather such a broad audience?
7. Sound quality and your voice
Speak clearly and make sure your volume is set at an appropriate setting so that your viewers can hear your video clearly without needing to turn up their volume.
9. Good editing is crucial
Get comfortable with video editing. A lot of your video attractiveness for the audience has to do with how you edit your videos. You will need to either get a friend to help you out that has knowledge of using video editing software or read up on some tutorials on how to use video editing software programs.
10. Digital marketing
Networking to maximize your viewing audience. Get a Twitter account, Facebook account, and develop a fan page and a personal website or blog where your audience can get more information about you and your videos. Be sure to advertise these URLs on your YouTube account and video description information.
Additionally, you can buy YouTube subscribers and views at a cheap price online. There are platforms that offer such service, and they provide real YouTube subscribers to your channel quickly. These subscribers are legit and won’t affect your account negatively. Seasoned YouTubers have been making use of the avenue you should too.
These steps will not guarantee 100% success, but it is undoubtedly a start on the right path to the start of your YouTube career.
