Vlogging, or video blogging, is on the rise in today’s digital world. There are countless superstar vloggers that can easily be found on youtube that have thousands – even millions of subscribers, and are often referred to as “the most famous celebrities you’ve probably never heard of” by the media. It can be a tough business to break in to, and a lot of the top vloggers had already established a solid fan base before even starting a vlog.
You can vlog as a hobby for whatever your niche is, you can vlog professionally and monetize your vlog – and maybe become a YouTube partner, or even use a vlog to help out your business. Vlogging gives viewers a look in to someone’s life on a very personal level, even more so than social media. The success of a vlog depends on creating a strong fan base and quality videos that keep your viewers coming back for more.
Vloggers are ordinary people in a very rapidly growing and influential online community, and their insights and opinions have a sense of honesty valued more by viewers than traditional advertising from businesses, making vlogging a great asset to utilize for companies with an online presence.
People enjoy watching vlogs because it’s like a personal connection, a celebrity they feel like they can be friends with.
Keeping those friends engaged in conversation and creating a community like feel with your vlog will help with your success immensely, and if you’re wanting to make money off of your vlog that will help to bring in more viewers.
Right now is a great time to break in to vlogging. It’s on the rise and is super popular and trendy at the moment. Sure, there are plenty of vloggers out there who have been vlogging for a few years, but it’s definitely not a burnt out area and there’s plenty of room for new vloggers to get themselves seen.
Vlogging isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and there’s no better time than the present to start one if you haven’t already. By starting a vlog you can do more than just post videos, market yourself, and manage the vlog. You’ll become a better storyteller, you can hold yourself accountable for your actions and inactions, if you’re an introvert vlogging could help you be more extroverted, and generally feel better about yourself and day to day life.
You know you have people waiting to see what you have to share with them – you have people that care that you don’t even know.
Just Start Your Vlog!
So if you haven’t already started a vlog but are thinking about it, jump right in and get started! Remember, you won’t become a sensation overnight, it will take a lot of hard work, but will also be a lot of fun and a new experience, and potentially a new stream of income! Sit down and write out a plan and put it in to action – but make sure you have more planned than just shooting a video and uploading it, you’ll need to edit it, add content if you want, and do a lot of marketing of yourself and networking.
All it takes is hard work and dedication – and to be interesting!
If you don’t give up and stay consistent, who knows – you could have 1,000 subscribers in a month!
