Do you want to start your own youtube channel? Have you always seen that talent in you and now you have decided to do things about it? Do you want to get famous among the viewers around the world and earn money at the same time? Obviously, youtube is such a platform that offers you a huge viewership, and if you are talented enough it allows you to earn a lot of money as well. And that’s why you want to be the next youtube star.
But taking this decision is just a start. A long road to hard work, learning and improvement awaits you. And probably the very first thing that puzzles you is what kind of youtube videos you should make. Well, your worries are about to come to an end as we are here to answer all your doubts. Read on to know more.
We have curated a list of some topics that you can use as guidance to find the topic that suits you and make you the next youtube star. But before you go through the list, let us discuss a few points that will help you make more sense of that list.
1) Find Out What You Like
Check out those things that you like or would enjoy doing. It is really important that you make videos of what you like. Building name and fame on youtube requires much more hard work than it may appear initially. And hard work won’t seem that hard if you are working on something that you already like doing in your life
2) Find Out Your Expertise
Expertise is different from what you like. I like watching movies, and so do my friends. But you ask us about anything related to a movie – production, direction, acting, screenplay, scriptwriting, etc, etc, my friend knows about all of them. And I? – I just like watching movies and enjoy them. That’s the difference. My friend is an expert in movies while I am not. And if you want to grow big on youtube, you need to be an expert in your niche. Otherwise your journey will not be long. Therefore check those topics in which you have an expertise, or at least you can gain expertise by putting in some effort.
3) Know Your Possibilities
If you have found some topics which you like and have some expertise in them as well, it’s great. You can now start your youtube channel. But from a long term perspective, you need to keep another point in mind. That is your possibility. What is the time available to you, what investment you can make, what other people you have to help in your work, etc are some of the factors that determine which topic you should select for your youtube channel These factors may vary for different topics. Some topics may need less time, people and resources, while others may need more. If you are doing youtube just for fun, then it’s okay to overlook these factors. But if you plan something big with youtube, then do consider these factors before you select a topic.
