Do you follow a certain vlogger? Do you subscribe to his/her YouTube channel? Do you constantly stalk his/her social media profiles to get to know more about his/her life? A Lakeland video production published together with a blog or a social media post has become so trendy for the millennial generation that practically everyone now holds a camera in front of their faces in the hopes of making the same “trending” video.
While everyone has a different reason for starting a vlog, whether to make money as a YouTube partner or simply to share his/her vast knowledge about a subject matter, they all follow the same tips when creating a video that will speak to their audience.
Choose your niche
Do you travel a lot? Are you good with makeup and skin care? Do you have some expertise about a subject matter that you think a lot of people will gain knowledge from? Some bloggers prefer to choose a broad theme but we think it’s still best to do your research and opt for a more specific angle. It is important to pinpoint what kind of content you want to create, as well as to who you are creating the content for.
Watch out for trends
Immerse yourself in your niche and become fully aware of everything that happens in the niche that you have selected. The ones who make the biggest splash on YouTube are those that jump onto trends or started a trend themselves. Remember to also use vlog titles that are catchy, interesting, and unique.
Focus on quality
You cannot simply drone on without talking about something specific, something your viewers want to know. Show respect to your viewers by making sure you’re offering some sort of information in your vlogs. Keep a careful eye on your audio—its clarity and quality—because, more than anything else, bad audio recording is a no-no.
Comment on other blogs
Since you are just beginning to become a vlogger, you should visit other vlogs with the same niche as yours. If you’re running a travel blog, visit other travel blogs and leave a genuine comment. Don’t just leave a comment to publish your website. Write something informative or interesting that will get that vlog’s viewers to click on your link.
Although it is important to focus on the quality of your vlog, it is also vital to be active. That means posting videos frequently on your YouTube channel. Subscribers like following active channels. This helps build your audience.
