Hey Everyone! In my previous article, I told you how to create YouTube channel and start your career as a YouTube content creator. Today I’m going to tell you how to become a successful YouTuber. It’d include some tips for showcasing your talent over YouTube in a more productive way.
You must be wondering who is this YouTuber? Well, a person who works on YouTube as a content creator is called a YouTuber.
Pretty cool, huh? 🙂
So in this article, I’ll be telling you some really useful tips which you should keep in mind while working on YouTube.
We all know YouTube has been grown so much over the past few years. The main reason is that it provides an opportunity to everyone to showcase their art and skills in front of other people in the form of videos.
And the best part is the diversity of audience. There’re a people from every culture who use YouTube so it really gives a lot of exposure to the person.
In short, YouTube can make you a BRAND and gives recognition if you use it the right way.
But what’s the right way?
What should you do to become a successful YouTuber?
That’s what I’m going to tell you today 🙂
Like I said the number of YouTube Content Creators (also known as YouTubers) has been increased insanely because of the rapid growth of this platform. Also people have understood that YouTube has the potential to give them more exposure and recognition. This has also increased the amount of competition because a lot of people are doing similar stuff over there.
A vast majority of users dream to gain popularity over YouTube but many fail to do so because they don’t understand the amount of competition and get lost in the crowd.
So you need to stand out from the rest in order to be noticeable among audience.
How to Become a Successful YouTuber?
To get a quick idea of what I’m going to explain in this article, watch the video below:
However, if you prefer reading the whole guide (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED), sit back and grab a cup of coffee because it’d take a quite bit of your valuable time 🙂
Now let’s have a look at some of the things you should consider to stand out from the crowd and gain as much exposure as you could.
- Discover Your Talent
The very first thing you should do before stepping into the YouTube world is to discover your talent and skills.
You need to figure out what you can do keeping in mind the interest of your audience because it is also very important (I’ll get to this point in detail later).
Your talent should be worthwhile. It must reflect real art. Don’t rush and start creating videos unless you discover your niche.
And who knows better than you what you’re good at 😉
So sit back, relax, plan what you’re going to do and ROCK THE YOUTUBE WORLD with your talent! 😉
- Bring Innovation
Now that you’ve discovered your talent, it’s time to create video content. But here you need to keep in mind that the content you upload on YouTube should be innovative.
Being innovative doesn’t mean you’ve to reinvent the wheel rather you could improve existing stuff or explain it in a more presentable way for easy understanding.
Moreover, your content should be trending so more and more people get engaged. But again that’s not a hard and fast rule. You can also present some old stuff in a better way so that’s totally up to you. You’ll get exposure either way 🙂
You must be wondering that I’ve been talking a lot about “presentable content”…
Well, this is what the success of YouTube is all about; PRESENTABILITY!
You must’ve heard a very famous saying: “Seeing is Believing”…
People always get inclined towards the thing which looks attractive to them so make sure whatever the content you’re creating should be visually appealing or presented in such a way that nothing can stop themselves from subscribing your channel 🙂
- Identify Users’ Interest
Ok so now you know about your video content and the way you’re going to present it, it’s time to find if your audience is interested in your niche or not.
Always look out for their interests before videoing your art. Analyze what people want to watch. This is because you’re there to make fans and it’s only possible if you keep up with the expectations of your audience so their interest must matter to you.
- No Fraudulent Behavior
One of the advantage of becoming a YouTuber is that you can actually make money out of your videos.
Do you notice ads displayed upon many videos you watch on YouTube? That’s how you earn through YouTube.
Google AdSense (Google’s Advertisements Network) allows you to monetize your videos using ads and get paid.
By monetizing a video, I mean to put ads on your video which are displayed to the viewers.
You get paid for putting ads on your videos. There are a number of metrics like number of views and Ad clicks which determine the amount of money.
So the real earning comes from ads. The more ads being displayed on your videos, the more you would earn!
But we all know there’s good and bad side of everything. Some people abuse this awesome income stream and do self-clicking (channel owners click on ads themselves to gain more and more revenue).
Don’t do that because if you get caught applying fraudulent strategies to gain views for maximum revenue, YouTube would permanently suspend your channel.
Some people only work on YouTube and living a successful life. It means that you can even make YouTube as your full time business and earn pretty handsome amount of money if you do it the right way.
- Push Users to Subscribe Your Channel
Last but not the least, all my discussion would sum up in this point which is our ultimate objective.
Oh Yes, I’m talking about SUBSCRIBERS!!
All people struggle over YouTube to build audience called “subscribers”.
These are the people who bookmark (subscribe) your channel to stay updated about your channel. They get notified every time you add a video to your channel and when they get a notification, there’s a fair chance that they’ll open up your video and you’ll gain a view on your video which will add up to your earning 🙂
But now the question arises, how do you get people who’re so willing to follow you that they subscribe to you channel?
Each video you compose, convey a message from it. That message should impose fans nicely about subscribing your channel.
” Lastly, my advice to you is that if you want to be successful over YouTube or even in any other business, never go for shortcuts but work hard and be patient. You cannot get success overnight. Great things take time and you always have to fight through bad days in order to get the best ones 🙂 “
