    How to get started on YouTube

    Once you have created your channel, you will need to get started on YouTube: let me give you some "tips" about it.

    Choose the topic to talk about on the channel

    Choose the topic to talk about on the channel it is of fundamental importance to be able to start your career as a youtuber in the best way. The advice I would like to give you is to choose a topic you are passionate about: talking about topics that you do not care about, in the long run, would tire you and make you lose your passion for creating new content.


    In any case, in choosing the topic to talk about on the channel, also take into account the sector in which you are going to insert yourself: if it is already saturated, as there are very popular YouTube channels that cover the topic in question, you must evaluate whether it is actually worth worth investing time and resources for your project or if it would be better to opt for other topics.


    Once you have chosen the topic to talk about on the channel, I suggest you use Google Trends, the Google service that allows you to monitor the most popular topics and keywords at a given time on the web, to get editorial ideas on the videos to be made.

    Therefore, connected to the Google Trends home page, set the item YouTube search on the menu Google search (located at the bottom), select the item city from the menu Worldwide, the option Last 30 days on the menu 2008 - Present and choose the category you are interested in (eg. Beauty and fitness, Computers and electronics, etc.) dal menu All Categories.

    By doing so, you will have access to the keyword look for the moment: I advise you to take into consideration those in the column Increasing, since they represent the hottest topics and, therefore, which could give greater visibility to your content. For more information on how to use Google Trends, see the in-depth analysis I dedicated to the service.

    Get the right equipment

    To make your videos you will obviously have to equip yourself with the right equipment. What should your “kit” include? To shoot you could use, at least initially, one smartphone equipped with a great camera, although it would be better to use a good camera or a professional video camera. Also consider purchasing other accessories that may come in handy during shooting, such as tripods, gimbals, gorillapods, soft boxes, microphones, action cameras, etc.

    Your equipment also consists of software tools that you will need to use for the video editing. You can use programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro e Sony VEGAS Pro or free solutions that may be just fine to get started, like DaVinci e Shotcut.

    Get inspiration from the most popular channels

    When you start making videos on YouTube, you might have a hard time getting ideas about what content to make and, above all, how to make it. To solve a creative block, I recommend that you get inspiration from the most popular YouTube channels, especially foreign ones. Doing this will not only give you new ideas for your channel, but it could also allow you to inaugurate formats that have not yet taken hold in the city.

    Clearly you simply have to take a cue from your "colleagues" and not copy their creations, also because this would go against the terms of use of YouTube and could lead to the closure of your channel or, in any case, to a penalty in terms of visibility on the platform. . Understood?

    Create interesting and quality videos

    Since videos are the "final product" you will offer the YouTube community, create interesting content is critically important to get started on the right foot on Google's famous video sharing platform. How can you succeed in this intent? In addition to trying to deal with issues that really interest users, try to be original and to "break the mold". This will allow you to have a better chance of being noticed by others, which could potentially earn you a lot of exposure.

    When making videos, avoid improvising and pay close attention to the language you use and how you present the information you want to convey to users. For this purpose, you may find it practical write a script with everything you will say or, in any case, an outline that contains the main information you want to talk about.

    Optimize the content produced

    Optimize content it is important to start having more visibility on YouTube and appear in the searches made by users. To do this, you need to use catchy titles and insert in the latter the main keyword. Furthermore, to increase the visibility of content, do not underestimate the importance of using i correctly related tags, choosing those that consist of "secondary" keywords related to the main keyword (you can get this information from Google Trends).

    The creating eye-catching covers that encourage users to watch the video. For this reason, carefully study the graphics to use for the cover of each video and leave nothing to chance. To create the covers you can use programs such as the famous Photoshop and GIMP, or web applications such as Canva.
