The idea of being a professional YouTube video maker is starting to become more and more mainstream as time goes by. But this surge in popularity is also extremely detrimental to new channels, as standing out in a sea of new channels is becoming more and more difficult. Lucky for you, there are many ways to get started, and here are a few of the best tips and tricks.
The first step of starting a new channel is taking advantage of the opportunities that you have. For example, you can buy youtube views to get on the recommended algorithm. Or, you can get help from the audience that you already have, your friends and family.
It may seem daunting to tell your friends and family about your YouTube channel and ask them to watch your videos and subscribe. This is also not a necessary step and can be avoided completely. But, having a small audience of friends that watch your every video and are also subscribed to it can be extremely helpful. By showing the algorithm that your videos are worth someone’s time on a regular basis is the fastest way to get on people’s homepage.
A lot of new channels die because the person making the videos isn’t consistent. You need to show some energy and show your viewers that you like what you are doing and are passionate about it. Having a regular upload schedule is also critical for gaining the first few subscribers. No one is telling you to upload daily. You can make a video once a month. Just be consistent with it.
Hone in on a niche:
Everyone will mention the concept for making your channel focused on a niche. But, no one tells you just how important it really is. Look at it this way. The first goal of a starting channel is to attract all the people that are interested in that niche. Then the end goal is to make new people care about a niche that they have no emotional attachment to.
Collaboration might seem like something that only big YouTubers can do. That’s not the case, however. You can and should collab with other creators around your own size. Also, propose collab ideas to bigger YouTubers because if even one of them became a reality, your channel is going to get a massive jump start.
