“Mr. Demille, I’m ready for my close-up.” – Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard
Vlogger Grace Helbig currently has over 2.1 million subscribers and growing- How does she do it? These days everyone loves going to YouTube to find great content, but how do you standout? More often than not though, people will sometimes just make one or two videos, get frustrated, and then abandon YouTube, to become purely a viewer instead of a creator. We reached out to some of our favorite vloggers for some advice.
We asked them – “If you had one piece of advice for a beginner vlogger, what would it be?”
As always, we received a ton of great advice, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
So here you have it, the best advice for beginner vloggers from pro vloggers!
“ I often tell beginners to keep consistent and to post videos at regular intervals. Even when no one is watching the audience will build slowly, but it will build.”
“Make videos because you enjoy it and are passionate about it.. And NOT for any other reason. Subscribers will come.. Along with all else. “
“My advice for vloggers just starting out would be to zero in on making content you’re really proud of. Make content you’d want to watch, because making it is gonna be a lot of work and you’re gonna be spending a lot of time with the material. You might as well be enjoying yourself while you’re doing it. I also think that the most successful YouTubers do what they do because they love the community on YouTube and feel a strong pull to contribute something to it. If you’re thinking about getting into vlogging purely because you want to be rich or famous, you’re missing out on the coolest part of the job. YouTubers get to connect with people from all over the world and talk about their passions and ideas. Like, are you kidding me?? That’s so cool!! I think that has to be a primary motivator for someone to get onto YouTube, because it’s so integral to the experience – for viewers AND for creators. “

“If I had one piece of advice for new vloggers/bloggers it would be to be very consistent with whatever outlet you choose to do. If you are a reviewer make sure you have things to review, if you want to Vlog your life… Stop procrastinating and DO IT! Also be yourself and try to upload quality content. Be the best YOU..YOU can be.. On YOUTube! “
