YouTube is one of the most trending options to grow your brand, your business, and basically your virtual dream of making money online! You Tube is the favorite entertainment and information spot for over 2 billion video lovers. Plus, you get to see over 80 languages at any time you need! That’s why YouTube is the second most preferred search engine in the world today!
If you are trying to figure out how to play around with YouTube in ‘the right way’, here are some beginner tips that are must-have actionable techniques for every You Tuber.
Gotta dream? Then define it!
Choose the subject that you are an expert in or something that you would like to share with the world. You Tube videos that cater to a specific subject draw in more attention than one channel that has many eggs in its basket. So, choose which topic or niche you would like to concentrate on in life.
Make sure that your video topics are:
- Interesting to the audience
- Relatable to the viewer
- Easy and simple to grasp
- Useful to the viewers
Filter your target out
Only once you have content that your target is looking for, then it will become easier for them to spot you. YouTube will also take steps to match the viewer’s interests with the videos that provide answers for the same. If you list down the questions, you will not have a shortage of topics for your videos.
Love your competitors
You need to watch the world around you, ask for suggestions and feedback from your viewers, friends, and even random people. Network and get to know the various possibilities on how to expand your video styles in the most budget-friendly manner.
Super smart creators go an extra mile to just watch competitor videos, check on their subscribers, and also analyze what they like. You can do a study and find answers to certain questions:
- Which videos did people really like a lot?
- How often do they engage with their subscribers?
- How do they handle the ugly negative side of a reaction of comment from a viewer?
- Their editing style, camera choice, background choice (ambiance for the video)
Make the scare a breezy affair
You Tube is much more than just posting a video of your choice. You need to study how to shoot a video, whether it would be shot on a mobile or a camera, the title to be used, the description to be used and also the insertion of the right keywords in the content.
You Tubers are not perfect from the start, but all make an attempt to learn how to make their video better each time. You too must learn the fine strings.
Work on that Channel
From the basic things like the logo, the color combinations, the topic of the video, the links provided, you need to pay attention to all of it! Plus, you need to engage and interact with your viewer crowd.
The logo should be different and strike among the videos that stream out into anyone’s feed. Make sure that your account is verified and give an attractive ‘About’ section of your channel. People need to know who you are and what the channel primarily deals with.
Let Creative Juice flow
Creativity is loved by all, isn’t it? There are so many You Tubers who may provide videos on how to work out attractive trick shots, but those who have seen the channel Dude Perfect – would have noticed how they showcase their talent.
These freaking cool guys are wacky, hilarious, and yet pamper the audience with so many innovative trick shots. Each shot is carefully calculated and performed along with a dollop of humor. That helped them rise from the humble settings to the million-dollar ground that they perform their shots today.
That exactly proves that creativity can go a long way!
Spice up & promote the identity
Make your content as compelling as possible. Even if you have content ready for the target audience, it needs to be laid out for them. So, make your display pictures as stunning as possible. Rework, research, ask for suggestions from your audience and even your team members and friends.
