Do you have a YouTube channel or looking forward to starting your YouTube channel? Here are 10 tips for YouTubers by renowned YouTubers:
- Focus on your niche. Don’t be like Jack-Jack of all trades and master of none. Choose an industry where you are the expert, where you have the authority, and where your videos will create an impact for the audience.
- Don’t run after views, likes, comments, or subscribers. Focus on creating amazing content, and there will be a good engagement on your videos. YouTube is all about quality content.
- The thumbnail of your video is as important as the video itself. The design adds value faster than it adds costs. Check out a few videos of some famous YouTubers to get an idea of how the thumbnail should look like. Be consistent in following the thumbnail template for all your videos.
- Don’t imitate other YouTubers. Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. Instead of imitating other YouTubers, create your own style. Who knows, your style could be better than the one you wanted to imitate.
- Get over your fear. Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will. Creating and publishing a YouTube video is like releasing a film where you are the star, the scriptwriter, the cameraman, the producer, and the director. Don’t fear the camera. You are the star of your own movie.
- Collaborate with other YouTubers in the same niche. The fun in collaboration is, working with other people just makes you smarter; that’s proven. When you collaborate with another YouTuber, you share your audiences with one another.
- Don’t waste your time guessing what your subscribers want to see next. You are the captain of your own ship; don’t let anyone else take the wheel. Keep experimenting. Your audience will still like you and see your next video even if your experiments don’t go as planned.
- Don’t be under pressure to deliver on time. Upload when you can. Your health matters. Take time out. Sometimes, your subscribers need to exercise patience to see your next video. They understand you’re human.
- Focus on one thing you will improve in your next video. It can be your introduction, the lighting, the placement of the camera, etc. After a month, compare your recent video with an older one, you yourself will see how much your videos have improved.
- Don’t upload a lot of content when you’re starting out. One video is fine.
