How to Create a Successful YouTube Channel

YouTube used to be a video-sharing website back in 2006, people used to share their cats and funny home videos. A decade later, making videos on Youtube is a full-time job for a lot of creators. So much so that Youtube is no longer a website, it’s an industry with its own celebrities, annual conferences, and award shows.

This infographic takes you through what it takes to create a Successful Youtube channel.

Getting Started

First, you have to start from your purpose and yourself the following questions:

  • Who will watch my videos and how big is my potential audience?
  • What type of content will I create?
  • When have people done this before?
  • Why do I want to start?
  • Where do I want this adventure to lead me?
  • How will I keep making my content better with time?

You’ll also have to think about the category for your channel. Whether you’ll decide on a gaming channel, a beauty channel, or simply do daily vlogs, all of those are popular categories on YouTube which have taken off in the past couple of years.

Getting started also means you need to come up with a creative channel name, set up social media accounts, and invest in quality video equipment for YouTube.

Should you buy a professional 4K DSLR right away or buy a point-and-shoot for vlogging? Will Mirrorless camera be a great alternative to both? Which action camera will give the most bang for your bucks? Find out in the infographic below.
