The entire day our moms our cursing us for being on our phones all the time, but why wouldn’t we be. There’s so much to see, so much more to read, and so many people exploring so many things, half of which we want to explore too. Not only does the internet educate us on the endless possibilities, it also motivates us to hone our skills or develop new interests based on what we are seeing. It’s fascinating and we want to be a part of it and contribute.
And guess what! It’s not impossible to do that. Like I’ve always told you readers. It’s patience, perseverance, dedication in the desired amount that is going to make you excel in any field you choose.
We all follow and subscribe to so many youtubers and sometimes we may feel that we have a talent for that as well, so why not give it a try? Just because we’re not confident enough or because we think that our parents are not going to support us. That is the entire point of Clazzez: to educate the youth and the parents alike, about the endless possibilities.
The best part about choosing this profession is that you get to do whatever You want. There is nobody ordering you or altering what you want to do (unless, of course, you want them to), and there is SO MUCH SCOPE. SO MUCH.
There are so many YouTubers that we all follow that we can take inspiration from.
1. Lily Singh aka Superwoman started YouTubing because she was depressed and wanted to reach out and make people laugh, and with the kind of persistence in her, how can one fail? She never gave up and after years of YouTubing, she now has more than 12 million followers, and is one of the richest YouTubers! And she even launched a book!
2. Tyler Oakley also kept Youtubing for years persistently, talking about the gay community and what he likes, and basically being himself, and now has more than 7 million followers.
3. Pewdiepie is the officially the most popular youtuber because he is good at video games.
These youtubers are successful just because they reach out to the viewers and most importantly, because they are doing what they like and are being themselves.
If you have a niche, it is really not difficult to start a youtube channel considering the amount of scope and the ease that the website offers, but as has been obvious since the inception of time, without dedication, you cannot become successful.
HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY OUT OF IT?
The main commercial benefit for YouTubers is getting freebies to showcase and products to review. Any YouTuber can also become a YouTube partner and get a percentage of the advertising hosted by YouTube on their videos. Top-tier YouTubers get serious deals coming their way. YouTubers aren’t allowed to discuss ad rates, but it’s generally acknowledged to be between $1 per 1,000 views, up to a few dollars per 1,000 views. Many YouTubers also make sponsored or branded content, in which they share or discuss a product for a fee. This can be very lucrative, but there’s also the risk of clouding your authentic relationship with your audience.
PewDiePie is twenty-something years old and the biggest YouTuber in the entire world. In 2016, he earned $13 million from video gameplay videos!
SOME TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND
Before starting a YouTube channel, you should know what you are good at and what you want to achieve. Maybe you want to show off your skills so you would want to start either a cover channel, or you could start a channel to support a subdued community and boldly speak about it. Really. The possibilities are endless. It is important to build trust in the viewers. Only then will they share your content with their friends and colleagues, who they think will relate to or get help from your videos.
Be confident. Do not be feel conscious to start something that you believe in. Just be yourself and you shall do just fine.
Have a niche. Know why you’re there. Have a purpose and speak about what you believe and build a community.
YouTubing is a possible career option. Do not disregard it as something impossible, and even if you do not get the desired success out of it, you will make a community and you will get something out of it. So if you have the desire and passion and even if you’re good at just talking a lot, just get to it!
