Every YouTuber knows the struggle of the ever popular question, “what should I film?!” As much as we hate to admit it, we do not have a rolodex of videos that can be filmed on demand, at any given time. Of course, there’s your routine videos, monthly favorites, and the collective haul with an assortment of products you’ve purchased this week but, how engaging are those? Debatable.
Let’s face it, we all need a bit of inspiration from time to time. Today, Grapevine is here to give you some secret tips and tricks on creating the most interesting and engaging content for your viewers!
1. Listen to your viewers!
How often do you scroll through your @replies and comment section? Not enough! The most successful YouTubers are the ones that truly listen to what their viewers have to say.
2. Take a look around!
Be inspired to create by your surroundings. Are you a college freshman tackling the world? Well, there you go! Try out an advice series. Or, maybe your friend made the best buffalo dip (like, ever!) and she just gave you the recipe. I don’t know about you but recipe videos are my current weakness. Think about new things happening in your life and use that as a platform to inspire some videos.
3. Two is better than one!
Hit up a few of your YouTube friends and see if anyone is up for a collab video. This can be a great way to grow your subscriber base and it gives you the chance to interact more with your fellow YouTubers.
4. Let a sponsorship guide you!
Maybe you saw a cool campaign in Grapevine? Maybe a local business reached out to you? Take advantage of these connections and relationships to see what opportunities fit with your channel. Sponsorships can be a great way to find new brands, make some extra cash, and share new products with your viewers.
