Time needed: 6 minutes.
- Decide the purpose of the channel
Initially, you need to know that you can reach people in almost every corner of the world by producing video content. Therefore, before opening your YouTube channel, you should determine what you want to tell people. You can prepare content that tells them how to do something like how to videos. Or you can create informative content. Travel videos and product reviews are other content production styles. First, determine the subject and style of content you will produce.
- Choose on your video style
Will you stand in front of the camera or will you collage with videos? After deciding the purpose and subject of your channel, you need to choose which style you will adopt while creating your videos. If you intend to produce content by standing in front of the camera, you may need to invest some money. For this, it will be useful to start by setting up a mini studio with a good camera, lighting system and microphone. Another style is to create collages using short videos. If you are going to create content with collage videos, you can even start with a microphone as you will not be in front of the camera. You can watch this video as an example of this style. Moreover, you can get free video clips from Pexels and Pixabay sites to make collages using ready-made content without shooting video.
- Learn to shoot and edit videos
To convert your content to video, you need to use a video editing program. After you write your content, you can collaborate with an agency or a freelancer to shoot and edit it. But it will be very beneficial for you to learn how to shoot videos and montage as an amateur in the first place. After starting with a lower budget, increasing your investments is the healthiest form of growth. PowerDirector Ultra, EaseUS Video Editor, Adobe Premiere Pro CC apps are some of the video editing apps you can use. Adobe Premiere Pro CC is an application that we can recommend for its user-friendly interface, ease of use and scope. You can purchase a course on Udemy to learn how to use it.
- Learn to create SEO-friendly content
The goal of every youtuber is to reach more people. In order for your content to rank high in searches, you may need to make many delicate adjustments. YouTube uses a very advanced algorithm to sort content. This algorithm evaluates your content in many ways. At this stage, it is very important that the title, keywords and description of your content are compatible with each other. It’s also vital to keep the audience’s attention alive. Your video should not be monotonous. The information being said becomes more interesting if it is supported by harmonious visuals and appropriate music. If the viewers get bored and leave the video early, it will reduce your watch time and this will cause you to fall back in the rankings. We recommend watching this video to learn how to rank in the searches.
- Engage with your audience
You can encourage your viewers to write comments on your videos. Also you can create follower loyalty by interacting with them in the comments section. So it can be a good strategy for your followers to watch your next content. In addition, thanks to the feedback you will read in the comments section, you can more clearly understand the content that your audience will love. Additionally content with a high engagement rate is more likely to rank.
- Promote your channel
Once you’re on the road as a youtuber, you can run campaigns to grow your channel. At this stage, you may need to invest a little more for your channel to grow. You can advertise your video to rank higher in search results. You can ask influencers to mention you on other platforms. Or you can cross-promote some videos by co-producing content with other content creators. All of these ads can be used to expand your audience. But after a point, it is much more important to grow organically by establishing a bond with your audience.
- Start making money by joining the YouTube Partner Program
After reaching a certain level, you can start making money with the YouTube Partner program. In order to be included in this program, YouTube will require your channel to have certain features.
