10 things you need to consider before starting a Youtube channel

#1 Find the Best Equipment

Having  crisp audio and clear video on your entire videos can make you different from a lot of other Youtubers out there. Buying the right equipment should be the 1st step in launching a successful Youtube career. 

What are the Best Audio and Video Equipment for Starting a YouTube Channel?

Remember, though, that a good camera is not everything. If you neglect other things like audio quality and lighting, your viewers may still lose interest in your videos after the first few seconds and won’t subscribe to you at all.

 Invest in a good microphone that you can mount on your camera. At the same time, mind your recording conditions and make it a habit to check if your audio is clear enough for your viewers to understand.

 For the sake of quality content, I suggest you use a shotgun microphone that’s designed to capture sound mostly from the front so noise from the sides and behind the mic can be canceled out. Some video creators even go as far as to invest in multiple microphones for different recording situations—you may require a lavaliermic (small microphones that can be pinned to your shirt) for shooting fitness videos or any other type of video that requires you to be far away from the camera, or a good condenser mic (or any mic that is commonly used for podcasting) that will allow you to do clear voice-overs.

   #2 Start with Simple Editing Software


You want to create videos doesn’t mean you need advanced software (Adobe premiere pro) to edit your content. These software programs don’t necessarily improve your content, particularly if you’re going to be struggling with it a lot during the first few weeks. 

If you’re novice (beginner) to video editing, you’d do much better with simple programs like tripods Apple iMovie or tripods. These are a lot more user-friendly and are easily downloadable (for free), if you don’t already have them on your computer. 

 #3 Plan Your Content

Before even starting a youtube channel, you’ve probably already decided on the kind of video content that you want to show your viewers. The best ways to increase your views and gain followers is still to keep your content interesting and engaging; the more people can relate to it, the more they’ll want to click on it and watch until the end.

It also helps to stick to your niche, if you have one. For example, many successful YouTubers out there have dedicated channels for tutorials, travel, or their daily lives. Viewers like living vicariously through the people they watch, so let them know what they can expect and deliver interesting material that they can enjoy.

 #5Make Every Second Count

For me I think it is important that you produce quality contents and delete anything that you think may not contribute to making your videos better. This means you need to be selective with the clips you include in the final cut. Select only your best shots (and clip out moments of dead air) to keep your viewers interested and engaged throughout your entire video.

Once you’ve amassed a bigger fans base, you may have a little more freedom to include a few of those artsy (or nonsensical) shots, but always remember to think like a viewer and create what you would want to see.

#4Look for Inspiration

As you go along, it may be more challenging to come up with something fresh, new content that will match the type of your first few videos. But don’t worry—even established YouTube artists go through the same thing once in a while. The secret is to look for inspiration everywhere—even when you’re out and taking a break from recording. List down your ideas. Check out other videos and build upon their ideas to make them your own.

 

Avoid comparing yourself to others and focus on your own channel. As long as you like and enjoy the concepts you come up with, your viewers will sense your sincerity and love for your craft, and this will help pique their interest. While you’re at it, take every opportunity to improve and evolve in other areas.

 #6 Optimize Your Videos for Search and SEO

No matter how quality your content are, if you don’t optimize your to rank on google search. Doing so can help your videos more visible  on YouTube. As soon as you upload your first video, give it a good, descriptive title that viewers are likely to write on the search bar—and make sure to include your main keyword or key phrase.

Another important tip that will make your video rank on search engine is use relevant tags that will help put your video under multiple related categories. When in doubt, scope out the competition and check what tags other similar videos are using. Finally, write a good description with at least 150 words, and include your target keywords, synonyms, and long-tail keyword variations. Not only will this help viewers figure out exactly what your video is about, it will also help your video rank in search engine results pages.

    #8 Connect with Your Viewers

Over time, you’ll slowly gain followers and get more comments from fans on your videos, and eventually, you’ll get messages on your personal social media accounts—you may even get some fan mail, should you decide to share your P.O. Box. As much as possible, make time to connect with your viewers. Remember that your social media accounts are an extension of your YouTube channel, so try to share tidbits of your life on popular social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. It’s also important that you try to read and respond to all the tweets, comments, and any other messages you get as much as you are able.

Interaction between you and your viewers can help you in gaining more inspiration for well-developed and new content ideas. And at the very least, it will also keep you inspired to move on despite all your difficulties in growing and sustaining your channel.

Such interactions are important as they help your subscribers learn more about you, plus it can help you foster a sense of community and online camaraderie among your own little community. It’s not enough that they like your content—they have to like you and their overall experience with your channel as well.

 

    #7 Build Your Network with Social Media 


 One thing you need to understand is that YouTube is all about sharing, connecting and collaborating with other users. You need to make more effort to build your network. This is particularly critical in the YouTube community, as collaborations among creators have proven effective in helping a channel grow and gain new subscribers because it helps both collaborators gain exposure with the other’s subscriber base.

Talk to other creators, make friends, and don’t be afraid to contact larger YouTubers to inquire about a possible collaboration. It can certainly be intimidating, but you won’t get anywhere unless you try!

 #9 Ignore All the Negative Comments

Bear it in mind that no matter how big or how small your channel is, there will always be negative comments. After all, YouTube is a hotbed for ruthless people hiding conveniently behind their blank avatars. No matter how good your content is and how hard you work on your channel, there will always be people who will make hateful comments and try to bring you down.

Instead of letting them affect you, take it as a simple reminder that you can’t please everyone, and don’t forget those who appreciate you and what you do. Seek strength

  #10 Upload Videos Regularly

This is another important tip behind a successful channel. Being consistent with your uploads can help you far beyond your imagine and believe this tip will help you to gain more subscribers because nobody would want to subscribe to a channel where is no content. No matter how imperfect you think your content is, it’s important that you keep getting your videos out there, as it is with podcasting.

Some YouTube channel owners publish videos once or twice a week and they let their viewers know about this schedule (usually at the end of each video) so viewers know when to check back. This gives a channel a bigger chance of getting a steady flow of views, especially once it gains a number of active subscribers. Once you figure out a convenient schedule that works for you, stick to it. You should be improving and getting more attention in no time!

I hope this tips will help you on your channel

Good luck!
