You might want to ask someday, how can this be profitable when what you do has everything to do with how you spend your time, behind closed doors. The answer to this and how to make a career out of what you do can be found in the same place. The YouTube platform aligns the interests of creators (that’s you), with viewers, and with advertisers. The idea is that you can post and upload part or all of your creation on the video platform. And then as the number of views goes up, so does your bank account.
The best part about all this, is that the as the viewer’s experience your content, the advertisers are given the opportunity to measure and support your project. The little things are really how you control the ebb and flow of views. Its paying attention to detail when it comes to setting up the perfect line of defense and capturing as many viewers in your net as possible, which means you need to have a channel, a brand, and many other things that spice up your dusty image.
Brainstorm your project. Ask yourself how your creation might be explained to someone who has no previous knowledge of what you’re doing or why. The best way to come up with a plan is to talk it out, and try different things. The opportunities abound when you’ve got friends around. Ask around or maybe try an idea you’ve had for a while. Put it on video and see how your friends react. How professional can you be about your project? And that doesn’t mean serious. If your project is all about being funny or sarcastic, then how much have you practiced? Is it everything it can be? And what did you leave out? Two of the best ways to show your creation is either to create a how-to video, or a commentary/interview.
If you haven’t seen a how-to video, go to YouTube and type in a search for “How-to” just about anything. And you will find more than a few opportunities to learn the ins and outs of making your project workable. Often you will find the best way to go about showing someone how to do what you do, is doing it yourself. But another way the “how-to” ers do it is to break it down into steps.
The interview/commentary gives your viewer the subject as you tell it. And in many ways this approach is more like sharing than the how-to, because whatever way you spin it, its still going to be you or someone talking about your stuff. Its nobody else’s stuff.
There are lots of ways to get started , but the best way will always be to do what it is you do best. The technical parts can come afterwords, such as getting music (it’s easy to download mp3 to add to your videos), the visuals, etc.
