I am used to think that I have a small YouTube channel and some really nice and awesome followers, who like to watch my videos and like my ideas. But when I start to think that my YouTube channel already reach 46k subscribers, I think I can claim that it’s kind of popular and successful blog! So how to make it successful? I think I know few secrets which I want to share with you.
- Make unique content. Yes, you can find this advice everywhere, but I can explain more. When I was thinking how to start my YouTube channel and what to make it about, I did a lot of investigation. I was thinking to make English lessons for Ukrainians, than I found that YouTube is full of it and I don’t think I can propose something extra. Than I was thinking maybe to teach foreigners how to speak Russian. But there was also so many videos like that. So I was thinking: ‘What about Ukrainian language?”. I did a search and I found nothing. And it was my first video on my channel – about Ukrainian language. It started from there.
In my other channel, which I have in Russian and it’s about parenting, I had almost the same story. When I was pregnant, I was searching a lot of information about baby delivery and other things, which I can not find. I found them in books, and later did in videos. My first video in short term reach almost 300k views… I think it’s good success. SO if I was searching about this information and found nothing in YouTube, maybe other people is searching as well! This is how you can get ideas what to tell in your videos!
- Make interesting content. I don’t know how for you, but for me it was always annoying when I see the title of the video; “How to cut piece of video”, but when I click on it I watch 5 minutes how this guy is opening program when he wants to show how to cut a video. Boring. For sure this one will not be my favorite.
- Be patient. If you are sure that content which you are laming are demanding on youtube, and you are making interesting videos – just be patient. You can not start channel today and tomorrow reach 1million views. It ‘s all require time and efforts. I made a first video, and I did a second video after 6 month. Than I started to make more and more, and I started to get more and more response from people. This is what inspired me!
Sure you need to check trends, popular videos, topics and so on, but for me I found that this 3 secrets was the most important!
