Tripod:

100% needed to maintain a stable and stable image. It can be a small tripod to place on a table, but generally a tripod that allows us to regulate in height and offer a stable support for the camera. Keep in mind that if you have a heavy camera, such as a large DSLR, the tripod has to be sturdy and sturdy to withstand.

Sound:

Sound quality is as or even more important than image quality. Have you ever heard that if a video has poor picture quality but at the same time a good audio, the viewer can still watch that video? And instead, if the situation is upside down and we find poor audio quality, the viewer will not take long to stop that video. Curious but true.

What we advise is to avoid recording the sound with the internal microphone of the camera and to use whenever you can an external microphone or external recorder to avoid background noise or hum.

Illumination:

Lighting is one of the most important factors in getting quality video. You can already have the best camera in the world that if the scene is poorly lit will not serve you anything.

When we speak of lighting we do not refer to amount of light but to get a suitable environment for the scene that you are going to record. Let’s look at some technical specifications for a small studio (such as youtubers rooms).

Enough light for the camera to capture details and colors.

Avoid hard shadows, especially on the face.

To give protagonism to the subject with respect to the background.

In fact, there is a basic lighting scheme consisting of three light sources: main light, fill light and counter light.

As its name indicates, the main light provides more light and is the one that serves as a reference marking the pattern with regard to the intensity of other sources. To soften a light, various diffusers are used, such as light boxes or diffuser umbrellas, which are nothing other than a translucent white surface placed in front of the light source.

Even so, it should be noted that the best light is natural, but also has its disadvantages; Depending on the time and day you do (cloudy, sunny … even the passage of clouds can cause you to see changes in light intensity during recording).

And once you have your video recorded, the last step before uploading the video, and perhaps the one that requires more work, is editing or editing it. For this we recommend the following professional programs in which you will find a variety of options to create a creative audiovisual piece that is attractive in terms of video and image effects:

IMovie (Mac) or Windows Movie Maker (PC): These two already come in your computer and are very easy to use for beginners who start in this sector. We also recommend that you, as soon as you can, give the jump to something more complex and at the same time complete. It will be worth it.

Final Cut (Mac) or Adobe Premiere Pro (Mac and PC): These are the programs most used by youtubers since they offer a lot of options regarding the other editing programs. Once you work with these, you can not go back to any other.

ScreenFlow (Mac) or Camtasia (Mac and PC): They also have the option to edit the videos but what characterizes these programs is the possibility of recording the screen of your computer, which is known as screen capture. This option is used by many youtubers who, for example, want to show a game of computer game.

How do I upload my videos to Youtube?

Now that you have your video recorded and mounted, and it’s only the easiest: upload it to the Internet or rather, as youtuber good, upload it to Youtube. For this you will need to create an account with Google; You can use the same one you have for your gmail email.

Once you have an account, upload the video from your channel page logged in with your account.

Once you click the button, you will see the next page where you must select the file you want to upload or drag directly into the next space.

While uploading and processing the video, you must fill in the following fields:

Title: write a title that summarizes the video but above all is concise and striking.

Description: Write what the video is about briefly, but the longer the text, the more it will help you find a larger number of users. In the description you can also add your social networks or website, ask them to subscribe to your channel, etc.

Tags: Write the keywords that describe your video to position it in the search.

It is very important to know how to optimize your videos for YouTube, that is why we leave this guide that will surely help you to improve the SEO of your content.

And last but not least are the miniatures. It is very important to take into account the following aspects so that your video stands out above the other youtubers and is the one chosen for the user within the infinite uploads that are made every hour. Remember that both the title and the thumbnail are the aspects that will guide the user to decide whether to click on the video to play or not.

The colors should be flashy and, if possible, within your corporate image.

If you incorporate an image of you, better than better.

The words that you include in the image must be of an important size to be able to be read in the small size that they have.

Keeping the same style for all thumbnails keeps your channel and brand.

Tips to be more popular on Youtube?

Apart from everything we have explained, you should also express your unique personality and show it to your users in each of your videos. In this way you will create your personal brand and form a special connection with your audience. We recommend the following:

Define the theme of the channel: “content is the King”, without interesting content, no matter how much effort we make at technical level or positioning web, if the content does not work users will enter once but will not return. And we do not want that, we look for users who are loyal to the channel, who subscribe, etc. That’s why, in addition to making videos of interesting content, you should also take into account the theme and define it to reach an objective audience.

Collaboration with other youtubers: try to meet people and contacts to ask them if they want to make a collaborative video together. It’s a great way to get more recognition and even be able to earn some followers from youtuber collaborator. Try to collaborate with people who have style and viewers similar to yours. In this way you will share an audience.

Interaction with your followers: answer the comments or questions your users leave. This is a good way to start building new relationships with your subscribers. If you are asked for advice, give it to him! Be genuine and friendly, this way you will attract more and more people. The important thing is to interact with your audience as much as you can.

Promotion on social networks: Share your videos on all your social networks. Work on the relationships you already have and let your audience form in a natural way. It is also important to participate in vertical social networks in which their themes coincide with that of your channel. This way you will reach more people and form a larger audience.

Constancia: have patience and constancy. A channel does not grow overnight, but on the contrary, it usually has a slow process. But at the same time, in order for people to keep coming back to your channel, you’ll need to update it frequently and if possible, always do so on the same day of the week so your viewers know when to look for your content again. More than one follower is waiting for that day to come when your favorite youtube uploads your next video. Who knows, maybe there will be someone who, in the end, does the same with you!

Closing the videos: when finishing the videos it is highly recommended to make a call to action such as inviting your users to subscribe to the channel, to comment, to ask any questions, to share them on their social networks, etc. In addition you should also take into account the fact of introducing a final face mask with annotations directed to other links such as another video, the channel page, social networks, etc.

Be yourself: your viewers will notice right away whether you’re being authentic or not. Exploit your personality and show it in your videos acting just like if you did it in front of your friends or family. Do not copy the style of others! Put passion and enjoy!
