Don’t be afraid to start small. Everybody started small! Did you know that YouTube itself started small? It began in 2005! A year after, however, it had already become the 5th most popular website. It may take time and effort to get to the level you want. But if you’re persistent, you can there.
YouTube Vloggers: How Much Do YouTubers Make?
Vlogging definitely has some perks. If you are serious, you can surely make more money than what you are receiving from your 8-5 salary. Vloggers usually get paid in various ways. First, YouTube will pay you a chunk of money once you get several thousand or millions of views. You can also make money by using or endorsing a product in your videos.
Popular vloggers like PewDiePie, for example, rakes in $12 million with his more than 50 million subscribers. Yuya, from Mexico, the no. 8 in the list of top vloggers, also surely gets a sizeable chunk of money. Her channel mostly focuses on beauty tutorials. At present, she has nearly 18 million subscribers. Aside from what YouTube would pay you for your thousands of likes and subscribers, if you gain the trust of your audience, you can readily endorse some products. The point, however, is that money will always accompany your success as a vlogger.
YouTube for Business: How Do Big Brands and Small Business Use YouTube?
Do you know that big brands and small businesses find vlogging to be a good avenue to promote their brands and services? Business is all about marketing! The more people who know about your service or product, the more clients you can gain.
General Electric uses vlogging to show how they help the community. Their success stories make people feel good about buying GE products. More than 17 500 users visit official website https://www.ge.com/ from their YouTube channel each month. It’s more than from Twitter and other socials. And, another example, Repair Clinic, a small business in comparison to GE, makes videos about how to repair home appliances. Their tutorials show you how to do something. Then, they invite you to go to their site to buy the parts you need. It’s a very effective marketing strategy. YouTube is very popular social platform for getting website traffic for this project. About 50 000 users per month visit their official website from YouTube channel.
Individual vloggers who are popular are also approached by big brands! PewDiePie, for example, has deals with huge companies. Disney, for example, had a deal with him at one point. Unilever and P&G have been eyeing advertising opportunities with YouTube star, Mum’s Eye View. The point is that if you’re a popular vlogger, you may end up with big deals.
By now, you’re probably wanting to post some video so that you can enjoy the perks that go with growing your channel. But before you can vlog, you must have a vlog studio. If you’re on a budget, a small vlog studio will suffice. The only requirement is that you have the needed tools in your studio to make the best videos for your style.
Best Equipment for YouTube Vlogging: Q&A
Here are some common questions people ask when setting up their studio.
Is it expensive to set up a vlogging studio?
Thankfully, no, it’s not very expensive. We’re not talking Hollywood-level productions with a vlogging channel. You simply need a good camera, good lighting, a small place to shoot your video, a good mic, your computer, and good editing software for postproduction editing.
Should you use a professional camera or mobile phone camera for vlogging?
Cameras can be a bit expensive, but they are a good investment. If you’re on a tight budget, however, you can use your phone camera or buy a Logitech C920 Webcam. If you have a larger budget, you can opt for a digital SLR camera like that of the Canon Vixia HF R800 or a Panasonic HC-V180-K, which are considered to be the best in $300 price range. You will also need a tripod as a camera stabilizer.
Is it best to use a microphone or mobile phone sound recording?
It’s unforgivable to have a good video but poor sound. So, make sure you have a good mic for better sound quality. If you’re on a tight budget, you can use your smartphone with a built-in microphone. However, if you can buy a Rode smartLav+Lavalier mic for smartphones, that would give you better quality.
You can also use a shotgun microphone like the Rode VideoMic Pro Plus. It’s cylindrical and looks like the barrel of a shotgun. It’s ideal for use by stationary individuals. If you have a larger budget, however, you can buy a Blue Yeti USB microphone, which is the typical mic preferred by podcasters and vloggers.
Should you use natural light or artificial light?
Good lighting is critical to the overall appeal of your video. It’s a surefire way to appear professional. With lighting, however, you have two options; either you can use natural light, or you can buy an umbrella lighting kit if you’re on tight budget. You can also buy a Diva Ring Light Nova 18″ Original photo/video fluorescent with stand for optimal lighting.
Should you use a fancy backdrop setup or plain setup?
When it comes to dressing up your backdrop, it would be good to subscribe to the saying “less is more.” Vloggers, to be effective, need to maintain regular eye contact. So, if there are many distractions in the background, chances are that these distractions will pull your audience’s focus away from what you’re saying.
But what should be your best backdrop option? A single-color backdrop would do. Don’t worry much about this, though, as the audience should mostly focus on the vlogger. Anything that is not distracting is good enough as a background.
