Are you thinking about starting a vlog? These days, everyone has forgotten about blogging as video blogging has taken over! Vlogging is a great way to share your personal life, and not only is it a lot of fun, but for professional vloggers there is also a lot of money to be made. Here, we take you through our top tips for first-time vloggers.

What is your niche?

With the exponential rise in vlogging in recent years, it is getting harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. For this reason, before you start vlogging, it is important to establish what your niche is and to pick this wisely. Do some research into the most popular vlogs out there and what their niche is to see what is popular, interesting, and what people are engaging with. Choose a topic that you are interested in and passionate about, and base your channel around this theme.

Use the right equipment

As we previously mentioned, there has been a huge rise in the number of people vlogging in recent years, which has made it harder and harder for new people to break into the industry. Nowadays, it is extremely hard to attract viewers with videos that have been poorly filmed and edited. However, it does not have to cost you a fortune to create professional-looking videos! To start off, you can use a free video maker to create your vlogs and have them be professional enough to compete with the established bloggers out there.

Look at trends

If you want to make a big splash as a vlogger and get noticed, you need to be jumping on the bandwagon for any current trends. Keeping up to date with your niche will mean that you are catering for the demand and people are more likely to find your videos. Your vlog titles should also be catchy and try to incorporate recent trends in order to attract viewers.

Commenting on vlogs

If you are just starting out as a vlogger, you need to try to get your name out there. One of the best ways to do this is to comment on other people’s vlogs. Commenting on other vlogs is an effective way to raise your channel’s awareness and gain new followers. For example, if you are a travel vlogger, then make sure that you are commenting on other vloggers’ channels. These viewers are then more likely to see what your channel has to offer. However, you need to ensure that you are leaving genuine comments – no one appreciates spam and it won’t be effective in gaining viewers. Commenting can also be a good way to connect with other vloggers in the community, organise collaborations, and even make new friends!

Frequency of your uploads

If you want to become a full-time vlogger, you will need to make sure that you are uploading consistently. Focusing on quality is also important. This helps you to engage more with your audience and keep them coming back for more.
