YouTube, the worlds biggest video sharing platform. Many people message and email me asking “kalab, how do i get started on YT?!?!” If you want to know. Just read this.
REMEMBER – NEVER USE EQUIPMENT AS AN EXCUSE. WORK WITH WHAT GEAR YOU DO HAVE!
This blog will be updated from time to time.
A few simple things you need to remember.
- Channel Ideas
- SEO (channel name, logo,titles, etc)
first off, in order to start on the platform, you need ideas. There is no point starting a channel with no ideas.
Some ideas include:
- Technogy unboxings/reviews
- How to videos
- Dancing videos
- Cooking videos
- Car videos
- Toy reviews
With the ideas, once you have an idea, you need to be commited on making that kind of content. So don’t just upload one video then never upload again. Be commited on doing it. And get a niche – if people sub for gaming and you do vlogs, it won’t work hey?
Branding, one thing you need to focus on is setting your brand (yes a YouTube channel is a brand!!) You need to have a good channel name, a very long channel name might work, but it’s better to go with a name that sounds good, and that people will remember. This also includes, a logo. Channel art icons. Etc
Also, when starting on YT you need to set yourself goals that you want to achieve. If you do that, it’ll keep you motivated.
Don’t do it just for the money. Most times, YouTube ads don’t pay that well, and there’s now some requriments that you need to meet in order to monitize now. It’s best that you provide other paid services other then just doing YT.
Getting started on YouTube can be hard, but if you have good ideas, commited to creating content, you’ll be fine!!
