How to Start vlogging On YouTube For Money Step 1
Make Your Mind
To initiate anything, you have to be serious and focused on that, you have to work first on your mind.
Because when we talk about vlogging then it’s a profession that really does take time in the beginning.
You should make your mind that you won’t get to have enough response in a couple of days or weeks. You have to be patient throughout the journey.
Before pursuing any field, researching is the basic step. If you are a vlogger then you must follow other vloggers. Before you start yours, observe their vlogs first.
Check their content, note down the way they use to interact with their followers, observe the tricks which they use to increase engagement of their audience, their style of making vlogs, and so on. These key points will help you more while making yours.
In the field of online working, selecting the area in which you are going to work called is called ‘niche’. It’s all depends over you either you fix your vlog just for one niche or multi.
Budget and Setup
While making a vlog, it is important to have a fine camera and a mic to shot a video. But if you’re a beginner and don’t want to invest an extra penny on it then you may start with your mobile phone too.
Additionally, if you have an amount to spent and want your vlogs to be perfect with no distraction then you may go for a high-quality camera, mic piece, tripod, and artificial LED lights to make vlog even better in dark.
How to Start vlogging Step 2
Once you are done with the above steps then you need to have an account on YouTube. Create your YouTube channel and then name it with respect to your vlog or you may create some quirk name for your vlog too.
Choose an icon for your channel to attract more audience, and add a little description of your channel.
It will help your subscribers to know the content they will get to have on your vlog. These are the building points that will help you start vlogging on YouTube.
How to Start vlogging Step 3
Before you start video blogging, you should know what you will be vlogging about. Lay a clear plan about your topic to avoid any confusion.
Furthermore, plan whether you are going to be all alone in your video or will include someone else, what you are going to say in your video, or so on.
Now you have to shoot a video for your YouTube vlog. If you are out, shooting a subject or a landscape then I’ll suggest you go for long shots and don’t break your continuity after 5 or 10 seconds.
At least take shots up to 25 to 30 seconds, this will help you to select the best part throughout the video for your vlog.
Secondly, maintain the leading line of your object, keep your object in the center of your frame. This will enhance the quality of your videos.
Adding sound effects to your video will help you to engage viewers more on your vlog. You may have two options for sound:
- Ambiance sound
You can add a variety of effects to your videos with the help of online sounds bank e.g. Audio blocks or pond5 but keep in mind these sites are not for free and you have to pay for each effect you choose.
Apart from these sites, you can also have sound effects for free from other websites e.g. freesound.org or freeSFX.
On the other hand, if you are out to shoot a video of nature then you may add ambiance effect to your video, it will highly glorify your video and will make it more perfect.
Usually, YouTubers tends to use the sound like a swish sample or a bell or cricket chirping.
In vlogging, the duration of videos matters a lot. There is no hard and fast rule that you have to make your video for a couple of minutes or an hour.
You can vlog for as long as an hour or as short as a minute, it’s all your choice. But for beginners, I’ll suggest to make short videos at their initial stage and then gradually increase their shooting time.
In the end, when you are done with shooting and editing it’s time to label your video with respect to the content you will have in your videos.
Don’t use any title for your vlog that doesn’t relate to your vlog because if you do so, then the audience couldn’t find your vlog by searching on the search engine.
Plus, you may use thumbnails relating to your content too, this will attract viewers toward your vlog.
