Setting up your own YouTube show can be a fun job and can also help you to earn a handful provided that you are dedicated and hard working. Hundreds of people start new YouTube channels every day only to get fed up and close the channel within a few weeks.
Here is a guide on how to set-up your YouTube videos show in a way that it doesn’t get blanked out among the other million channels:
You must plan every shoot diligently if you want more and more people to visit your channel. You should constantly try to come up with better scripts, and always try practice sessions before starting the final shoot.
If it includes two or more people, try to improve the dialogues and interaction so that it doesn’t seem like scripted (even if it is).
And most importantly, make sure that you have a suitable microphone that tapes the sound perfectly. Lighting should be focused towards your main subject, and as you don’t want your audience to be staring the background, make sure that the backcloth is distraction free.
Lights, Camera, ACTION!!!!!!! Wait!!!
You cannot start the shoot directly. You’ll need special video shooting software for this. So first of all, get free Debut software from http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/
There will be three capture modes in the software namely Device (Webcam), Screen (To record the actions on the device screen), and Network (Network Camera). You are shooting a video show, so choose Device.
Adjust the other options as per your requirements like the file format and video resolution. Make sure that the brightness and contrast levels are normal. You can also add a digital watermark if you want to.
Now you are ready to shoot the video!!!
The video is good for nothing unless it is uploaded. So go back to YouTube page. You can create a new account for your channel or sign in with your existing Google account.
Click on the upload tab and select the video file which you want to upload. You can choose whether the video will be Private (Viewable only those people with whom you share the link), Unlisted (Won’t be visible in the channel), or Public (Accessible by everyone).
Once the video is uploaded, you can edit it in the Video Manager. You can adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, and even add filters. In addition to that, you can also trim, slow down or flip your video.
If you want to make this video more professional, click on “Try the YouTube Video Editor” since it lets you edit, cut, and add transitions to your footage.
You have to attract people towards your channel. Thus, start promoting your home production on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, blog and other social networking platforms, and there’s no “enough” in promotion. Try to aggrandize your channel as much as you can.
Try collaborating with other YouTube users to expand your community and don’t forget to interact with your audience. Therefore, always reply to your subscribers’ questions promptly. You can also try YouTube’s “Call To Action” feature to increase the number of subscribers.
Well, that’s it!! Now it’s up to you to expand your channel.
