Awesome! Thanks so much for subbing!
I think if you ask anyone that question, they will definitely say: “Just do it!” And I agree to a certain extent. You should definitely just dive right into it. A really easy way to start is to do a video response or a tag. These type of videos are really easy when you can’t think of anything to talk about.
But once you have jumped into it, there are a few things that will make you a little more successful.
- Great video quality: people don’t like watching videos that are fuzzy, have bad lighting or bad audio.
- Great editing: the better you are at putting your video together, the easier it is to attract an audience. People really like smooth transitions and well put together videos.
- Be relevant: Take a look at video makers in your genre and see what they are taking about. You don’t want to copy them, but other Youtubers are a great source of inspiration.
- Keep it short: If I see a video in my inbox that is longer then 5 minutes, I probably won’t watch it. And I think most people are the same way. I’ve got a short attention span and I don’t want to hear you ramble fore 20 minutes. I ramble a lot, so thats where my editing skills come in handy, lol.
- Have an awesome personality: Above anything else, this is important. If you have a great personality, people will watch anything you put up. (not to say that I have an awesome personality, but I know I watch people based on if I like their personality and not really what they are talking about.)
- Last but not least, be patient: Some people are just so lucky or so talented that they get like a bagillion subscribers in 2 weeks. But that isn’t the case for most people. Just put up good content and don’t concentrate on the numbers. It will make the video making experience a lot less stressful and competitive.
If I’ve left anything out, I will update this later. I hope this has helped you and anyone else looking to start videos. Good luck!
