Step 1 : When To Start With Youtube Career

Youtuber

Youtube is a place where billions of hours of videos are uploaded daily.

Billions of hours of videos are watched daily.

When you first upload the 1st video and you start seeing the engagement with people, where people start commenting and like and share your videos.

You feel that thing of complimentary where you feel that Yes this is the thing I need to do.

There are many youtubers out there who started their journey with side hustle, where they were making youtube videos as just for side hustle and sharing them.

Some people even went on to telling me that they even did not know how to make money with youtube at the beginning.

And monetisation programme had not even started.

Here are some of the examples:

So these were just 2 to tell you as an example, but when I saw the others with my research every youtuber has his own reason, passion and hunger to do with his youtube career.

Sit down and ask yourself are you ready with it, when you feel to make it your career.

What is your current position and then decide.

Are you yet student, are you employed then see how will it be possible for you to go with youtube.

Step 2 : Research & Planning

Now you know when to start with your youtube career, then next thing is to do the research.

Here are some things you need to do research on:

Research On Topics

Audience Research

Timings

Budgeting

Let us see how to do them:

Research On Topics

You need to do the research on what are you interested to do the videos on.

Find out how many people are interested to watch your videos.

You can use the tools like Google Keyword Planner and understand what are the topics which are evergreen trending.

You also need to check out what is the strength of audience who want to watch your videos.

Find out the ways to make compelling videos, which intrigues your audience to watch them.

You need to do the videos where people would want to share them with their friends and their community.

Audience Research

Youtube -channel

Now find out the audience which is interested to watch your videos.

Now consider you want to teach Video designing, graphic designing or any how to videos then you need to understand the interest from the audience.

There are some basic but significant points to remember:

  1. How To Videos
  2. Educational Videos

1. How To Videos

People will be recurring enough when you are helping them with your knowledge and not just by uploading the memes.

People would like to watch your videos when you are solving their problems.

Youtube is the community where people are engaged helping each other with their opinions and trying to solve each others problems.

2. Educational Videos

When it comes to choosing the topic, you need to be very careful, because people will only be coming back to watch your videos, when you are educating them.

Try to be more concerned with the things where people face problems and you need to give the solutions.

Remember you can make your successful career only when you build the supportive community around your channel.

Community will only be built when you have the right topic and educational videos.

Timings

What is timing is research?

Timing is once you start building the audience to your channel you need to find when is the highest engagement you get to your videos.

Find out the specific timings when you are getting highest number of views to your videos and then start uploading and publishing 2 to 3 hours before it.

Here is the point to remember, you need to publish the videos 2 to 3 hours before your target timing as it takes time for youtube to index your videos and even you need to market.

Best option is schedule them rather publishing them.

Budgeting

Now the time comes of budgeting.

Start writing down the expenses you are going to incur for starting you career.

If you ask me, start with whatever you have rather investing any amount.

In simple words start small.

Never spend too much on starting with your career on youtube.

Rather focus more on making more na more content and marketing.

To be on safer side have some money with you before you quit your job or anything you are laready doing.

Plan B always help you.

Step 3 : Work With Passion On YouTube

Youtuber

When creators first start out, many assume it’s best to make their videos appeal to the broadest audience possible.

However, time and time again we’ve seen creators find success by tapping into a small, yet passionate, niche community.

These niches vary in size from huge communities, like those who play the game Minecraft, to smaller communities, like antique doll collectors.

Groups like these are seldom served by traditional media, so they’re extra enthusiastic when they find a show tailored to their interests – and this enthusiasm can lead to more views, watch time and engagement.

Viewers feel like they’ve finally found a show made specifically for them.

There is some difference in what you know and what you are passionate about.

You know about marketing, but you are passionate about teaching others.

So this is the thing you need to understand before you start career with your youtube channel.

Passion is the thing where you never get bored to do that work.

Do you get bored watching movies? If yes then you need to understand that you are not passionate about it.

When you do not get bore with what you are doing then you are passionate about it.

People who are passionate about what they are doing they do it by heart and the results are extravagant.

Remember, stay true and make what you love. Otherwise you run the risk of disliking the end result or being bored with it after a year.

Successful creators on YouTube often emphasise the importance of being authentic.

YouTube is a community where there are few limits to what you can share with the whole world, so make it count!

Ask yourself these questions to hone in on what your future on YouTube could look like:

  • What do you want to be known for? What does success look like to you?
  • What genre does your channel fall into? What are other creators doing in that category? Which ones do you like the most and why?
  • Who is your audience?
  • How do you want your channel to look in five years?
  • Who are your favourite YouTube creators and what makes them memorable to you?

To win fans you have to know who they are. A major component of planning out a channel is identifying your audience.

You want to be sure that people can relate to your content and will want to watch it. Consider your ideal audience:

  • Who do you think will be drawn to your videos?
  • Will your channel resonate with a specific group of people?
  • Is there a niche that you’re tailoring your content towards, like yoga enthusiasts or action sports fans?

Step 4 : Value Your Audience

Youtuber

Your audience or subscribers are the ones who support you.

Subscribers are critical to your success on YouTube because they tend to spend more time watching your channel than viewers who are not subscribed.

And on YouTube, strong watch time is critical. Channels and videos with higher watch time are more likely to turn up in search results and recommendations.

So it's important to build a subscriber base who love your channel and keep coming back for more.

Once a viewer subscribes to your channel, YouTube may send them notifications to highlight certain videos that you make public.

They can also opt in to be alerted when all new videos are published.

Because subscribers are likely the first to see when you've released something new, they often drive initial views when your videos premiere, and contribute to increased discovery by non-subscribers.

Start building your own community with the deeper connection which leads to long term success for your career with your youtube channel.

If your audience loves what you are sharing with them, they are likely to share it with their friends and leads to more views to your channel.

When you start interacting with your audience by going live and helping them out your fanbase increases and leads to more subscribers to your channel.

Community building on YouTube is an evolutionary process it doesn't always happen overnight – so stay positive and keep moving forward even if you don't see the kind of numbers or conversation that you'd hoped for right away.
