Community Days: Saturday & Sunday!
The first thing any beginning YouTuber must realize is that gaining an audience won’t come to you right away. You must first build your “brand” and concept for your channel. When people see that you are in charge of your own content and that you know what you are doing, they are more likely to stick around and even share it if they are so inclined.
How do you come up with solid ideas? Unfortunately I don’t know. You are the only person who can answer that. What are your interests? What is your passion? What do you like to talk about? How would you like to express your voice and have it be heard? Of course YouTube is a wonderful platform, I think we can all agree. However, if - for instance - writing or conversing with people is something you love and are good at, you may not necessarily want to make videos but instead start a blog or a podcast. Social media platforms such as twitter, facebook and instagram can be used as tools to help expand your network and bring in an audience. Just as how going to Business Day at Playlist allows you to network with other creators. *wink* *wink* (Here’s a social media tip: we all know that twitter, fb and instagram have all completely different uses. use this as an advantage to broaden your creativity and audience. eg: don’t only link your blog posts, videos, or podcasts to your twitter. actually tweet! get involved in conversations and have people hear what you want to say! people who may have just followed you on twitter most likely have never seen your blog or heard of your podcast. and just like that you gained a potential audience member)
