If you are confident with your videography and editing skills, you can earn extra money by offering your service online. It used to be not that easy, and only famous production houses monopolize the business. The equipment and editing tools were also too expensive to afford by individuals. But today, everything has changed for good.
As we can observe, creating game video-reviews, holiday vlogs, or tutorial videos can attract millions of viewers. Platforms like Vimeo, Dailymotion, and YouTube offer good payment to video creators who manage to bring in more people to the site. And here, we are going to discuss some tips that will make you not only a better creator but also marketer.
Consistent Theme and Index
If you start a channel, do not make contents that can confuse your audience. It may seem obvious, but in practice, many creators have made mistakes about it.
If you build a tutorial channel where you teach people how to make use of used items and to turn them into handicraft, do not put ranting videos. One or two videos are okay. But even then, they must be related to your main theme. Posting how happy you are because you have just got a new dog might be tempting. But you would be better not to do it.
Indexing is basic, but you must be careful about how you label your contents. Some videos may belong to two categories at once. What you can do instead is to set the categories before you create a video and to stick with them. Some creators tend to make videos out of spontaneous creativity, which can be troublesome to put in the channel’s index. Having many categories with only a few contents in each looks unattractive.
Working with a Video Marketer
If you want to earn serious money, you cannot rely on one platform. But then each platform has its pros and cons. Also, in reality, people who want to watch tutorial videos visit YouTube more than Daily Motion. Lecture videos are also more abundant on YouTube than Twitch. LiveLeak serves as a video journalism platform, and it would be the wrong place to upload a makeup tutorial video. Working with a video marketer can save you the time from making an unwise move. Some even offer consultation and analysis in their service packages. Devoted to the Schedule
Good contents without proper scheduling will mean nothing. If you have not uploaded any video for a while, your audience will think that your channel is dead. Subscribers are your loyal channel visitors who also watch any ads that you allow to feature in your videos. They are the reason why you make money, so you would be better not to disappoint them.
Being disciplined with the schedule might be tough if it is your first time to be a video creator. Some of the common reasons are: revenue has not been established yet, and production budget flares up. But if you can pass those stages, profit will come very soon. You would be better hang on and give all you have got to keep uploading videos on a fixed schedule.
