Things to consider when creating YouTube videos

  • Video makers from all over the world are creating youtube content. A study shows that the most popular categories are Entertainment, Gaming and How To and that the most popular youtuber is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, known by his nickname PewDiePie, which currently have over 111M subscribers.

    Regardless of the type of content that you wish to create, there are a few points that you should consider, especially if you are just starting.

    1. Equipment

     If you do not have a high budget, you can start by using what you already have: your smartphone. The newest models come with built-in features (such as iPhone's Cinematic Mode) that can shoot in HD and 4k quality.

    However, if your budget allows it, you can use a professional camera and microphone that you can later edit on your computer by using editing software. This will highly increase the quality of your content and the engagement rate of your viewers.

    2. What is the purpose of your channel?

    Each video that you create needs to have a purpose. Are you creating educational content? Are you telling your story through a vlog? Are you a filmmaker? Regardless of your answer, you will create a video with a purpose in your mind.
    Write a script or outline to organize your ideas.

    If you need to find inspiration for your videos, I have the following suggestions for you:
    Ask your community for suggestions in the comments section

    Find like-minded people in Twitter or Facebook communities that can inspire you

    Search on YouTube for ideas

    Good luck!
