Why choose me as your videographer for Youtube
We make engaging Youtube videos that will help you grow your dream audience.
We know it very well. Not all videos are the same. Youtube videos to be engaging must have certain qualities that appeal to your audience. Moreover, it has to fulfil your viewer’s needs. For example, a video for kids and children must be well made and knowing all the techniques required to keep them amused and catch their attention through the entire duration of the video as kids attention tends to be very dispersed. You might also want to make it educational and teach them some basic knowledge appropriate for their age.
On the other hand, a recipe video can be very straight forward however it has to be effective and it can not be too long as viewers will switch to another video. Today internet users are more impatient. They want something and they want it now. So bear this in mind while you are filming your recipe video. Similarly, we can help you choose a presenting style from funny and amusing to something more casual and grandma-like for a cooking video.

My 10 secrets as a Youtube Videographer to grow your channel
Below I have outlined the ten secrets that make a Youtube video successful
- Be yourself, be genuine
Youtube audiences do not turn to Youtube to see what they can actually consume by watching traditional television. Actually, they are looking for something real and genuine. They want people that are being authentic and feel-related too. One of the most successful YouTuber out there and speaks personally is Gary Vee. The main reason why he is so successful is that he is being himself. As a business owner, we all might picture a business owner as someone methodic and cooperative however Gary swears while speaking and is being genuine and different from what we all might have traditionally associated to a businessman. So be yourself regardless of your filming style, this way you will build a genuine and loyal audience. One that feels identified with yourself. Similarly, you will also have a better time while making your videos.
- Create appealing video thumbnails
Video thumbnails are very important. You judge a book by its cover regardless of how fair or unfair, it is but that is the truth. It is proven that attractive video thumbnails will increase your CTR (for those who do not know what CTR is: click-through rate, the number times is shown to viewers divided by the number of clicks on the video). For a thumbnail to be effective, it is proven that containing a human face looking toward the title of the video is the most effective way to capture viewers and increase engagement.
- Be funny
People love laughter because it makes them feel good. Funny and humorous videos have a higher number of subscribers and views and the main reason is that they are more engaging and bring more positivity to viewers. By giving a funny touch to your videos, you will eventually generate more views and gain much more followers.
- Post often but not too often
Unless you are one of those YouTubers that film their everyday life, you do not need to post daily videos. However, you should post often enough so your audience does not lose interest but not often so they keep coming back looking for more. In my experience as a videographer for YouTube, I would say that you can post at least every week or every two weeks depending on the nature of your content. I have seen the best results by following this rule.
- Engage with your audience
You need to understand Youtube as a social media platform where you are building your audience and the most powerful tool to build loyalty is by interacting with your audience. It is important to reply to comments – positive ones only, do not waste your time with negativity and anything that does not help you grow. Another way to build loyalty is by creating community events where you go and meet all your followers. This will help you massively build a loyal audience. When your followers see face to face and can interact with you, this will trigger an emotional response that will be much more memorable than hundreds of videos.
- Create Q&A
- Interview other YouTubers
This might seem like something counterproductive. Why should I show another Youtuber on my channel? Would my followers not go to the other channel? But interviewing and creating cooperative videos with other Youtube channels you will eventually attract more attention coming from that one channel and ultimately more followers. It is a complete win-win situation for both of you. So go ahead and start cooperating with other channels and you will see exponential growth on your number of followers.
