Try to video your day (vlog) like when you plan to go to a mall today, video and shoot it, upload it on youtube and let viewers view your videos.
It's so easy to vlog especially when you highlight the most happiest moment of your day. Example: Eating at mcdonalds.
I would vlog if I had ;
- A good camera
- Interesting things to vlog about
Just not really in the cards for me at the moment. But thanks for the suggestion
WRONG. This leads to an instant burnout within the first few month. Create when you want to create if you want in this thing for the long run. It is surprisingly easy to get burned out on doing YouTube. Big YouTubers suffer from it, but smaller ones even more because there is no "reward" other than views and subscribers. And then there is the fact that pushing for regular content on a schedule turns it into a job. And nothing is worse than doing a job without getting paid for it.
Never bothered with it. Perhaps it is the reason why my content does poorly. But it is what it is.
Clickbait the crap out of it. Be like everyone else. I don't do it to their degrees, probably another reason why my videos do poorly. But I can say I never clickbaited, which is something I take pride in.
Screw Facebook, stay off twitter. Instagram is where it's at. But for the love of GOD do not set your account up as a business because your reach will drop considerably.
I never considered doing daily ever xD There isn't really a need for it. I know sometimes YouTube's algorithm gives more consistent uploaders ranking in the search, but for me, I'd rather get a video done right and make it something I'm happy with rather than pump them out and taking no pride in it.
SEO is something I am trying to improve, and trust me, it does make the difference. Tagging your videos, making good descriptions and titles definitely brings them up the search results and recommended.
I try avoid clickbaiting, but sometimes its just something you have to do. If you spend hours on a singular video and you're afraid it won't do well, you can make an eye catching title and thumbnail. As long as its not misleading, I'm pretty okay with it. I don't tend to do it myself either, nor am I promoting doing it. But on YouTube, you gotta do what you gotta do to stand out
I haven't touched social media too much. I always steered clear of Facebook, not even having a personal account on it xD Twitter is meh, okay for updates and little posts, but I do agree when you say Instagram is a good place for promotion. It helped me a bit in the past too.
Thanks for the well written reply. Happy to see people on YTTalk trying to help others ^.^ Restores some of my faith in the YouTube community.
