Top tips to get up and running with your first YouTube channel
Share This Article:
In an age dominated by social media, it's not surprising that a lot of us make the choice to plunge into the world of YouTube, whether that be as a creator or viewer. Two years ago, I made my own YouTube channel and it was one of the best decisions of my life. Clearly, as you are reading this, you wish to do the same. So, here are my top tips to get you started: 1. First things first, you must be yourself. Although it sounds cliché, it's very important to not create a fake persona of yourself online. Just because your viewers may not know you in the flesh, that is not to say they won't see straight through you. Honestly, you can only keep up an untrue version of yourself for so long before it becomes tiring. Remember, your unique personality is what will keep people coming back for more! 2. Next, you need to decide what type of videos you want to film. This is entirely your choice. Do you have a naturally funny personality and want to showcase this in comedy sketches? Or are you creative, and want to do some film making? Is makeup your thing? If so, why not film some tutorials? Be true to yourself and present things you love doing and would enjoy watching yourself. Be confident in what you're good at!
