Meet Arianna Henderson:
How did it feel to surpass 35,000 subscribers?
It felt really cool to surpass 35k! I remember when I first hit 100 subscribers, so it’s surreal that more and more people keep subscribing and watch my videos. It’s crazy!
What inspired you to get into YouTube?
I started YouTube as a fun hobby in 8th grade. I wanted to be an actress and a director/producer, so I’d create little videos to upload with friends. 10th grade was when I wanted to “rebrand” so I started a new channel called It’s Ari Bby (my current channel) and made music videos, skits, vlogs, and just had a lot of fun with it. It was my creative outlet and honestly helped shape who I am today.
How do you balance other responsibilities and running a YouTube channel?
It’s really tough but having a schedule is my best friend. During the school year, I schedule filming videos around classes and editing at night. Now that I’m done with college and I have an internship for the summer, I’ll schedule filming on my “off days” and edit throughout the week. Bulk filming is also a major key (DJ Khaled voice). Filming multiple videos in one setting helps save time throughout the week so I don’t have to film late at night and can just focus on editing.
What do you think your subscribers would say if we asked them why they’re subscribed to you?
I think they’d say my crazy personality. I’m so talkative and random- I like to be open and show that in my videos.
How has your content changed since you started your YouTube channel?
I actually create a lot of the same content but my production value has gone waaaay up! I have a much better camera and I like to think that I edit a lot better now too.
What would you say to someone thinking of starting a YouTube channel?
DO IT! It’s a lot of fun but a lot of work. If you like a challenge and like to express your creativity through video, then a YouTube channel would be perfect. Just make sure you’re not doing it just for money or to get followers. While it’s a perk, it shouldn’t be your main focus.
Any big plans for this year? What are your channel goals?
Well… I just moved from Dallas to Los Angeles and I’m completely done with school and internships in the fall. I guess my big plans are becoming a real adult (SO SCARY). I hope I can brand my channel a little better and grow my channel more, and also start blogging more consistently.
How can Grapevine help you achieve your YouTube goals?
With Grapevine I’m able to work with companies that match my brand and match the content that I want to create. There are new campaigns everyday which helps give me new content ideas for my channel.
What is something your subbies might not know about you?
They may not know how much I love them! Sometimes I can’t respond to every single comment, but I see them all and I really appreciate all the love and support that they give me. It’s really more than I could ever ask for!
