Nowadays people tell you how vlogging can be a powerful tool for your blogs success. What with the high-speed connection in most households and YouTube making an impact on millions of people out there, the video has become such a cool tool to play with that nearly everyone is using it and some even abusing it.
This is where, I believe, vloggers get it wrong. If you look at YouTube, for example, you get to see some pretty naff videos being made which don’t get much exposure, the flip side being that you get some who bring home a fair share of viewers and others who go completely ballistic -and get an audience of millions.
I have recently listened in on a teleseminar with Maria Andros who spoke about seven ways to improve your video skills and get a better chance of bringing in a higher number of viewers than if you didn’t have a plan in mind, to begin with.
7 Ways To Become Successful Vloggers
So, here we go with the seven steps to vlogging for success:
1. Welcome your audience
But before you even turn on the camera, to get yourself in the zone, do some jumping jacks, flips, splits, whatever it takes to shift your energy and get the good vibes flowing through your system.
And once you’re ready, make sure you set up the camera at the appropriate angle (preferably on a tripod), flick on the ON switch, press that RECORD button and get ready for the introduction. That’s right boys & girls; you want to welcome your viewers first by introducing yourself and try and be as natural as you can, pretend you’re talking to a friend of yours. But if you still feel a bit apprehensive, do some more somersaults 😉
2. Establish credibility with your viewers
What that means is that even though you’re still a complete miserable failure in the internet marketing game, that’s not to say that you don’t have something of value to share with your audience.
3. Keep your audience interested throughout your video
In this day and age of numerous channels and many vlogs on the web it’s easy for your audience to lose interest and flip onto another silly vid of a girl with low cut top and over exposed blossoms, so keep them wanting more. Hook them in with some top tips if you have to, draw their interest, tease their senses and even add some humor to grab their attention.
4. Share your story with the world
Let go of your ego here, and don’t be shy to share with your audience the reason for your blogging in the first place. I’m sure we’re all here for most of the same reasons so be truthful about why you are here in the first place? What made you decide to become an Internet Marketer? Open up to your audience and allow them to see the real you. After all, we’re all human beings at the end of the day.
5. Paint the problem
‘Are you sick and tired of being… Sick and tired?’ Tell your audience some of the biggest problems we’re facing today, and the crap that most of us have to deal with.
6. Provide a solution
You can help them change for the better. So what can you do to soothe their problems, alleviate their troubles, calm their nerves?
Shooting a video is a tedious job but yet you have to master it. Your viewers are not stupid. Once you have decided to become a vlogger, then it is essential that you find the right camera to vlog. Resolution of video uploaded by you does matter on the number of viewers play it and stay tuned for it. If you just sit on the couch and use your camera phone to film the vlogs, then they are going to get fed up.
Social media (Youtube, Facebook) has lately become the best digital entertaining platform to view the trending latest videos and news. Therefore, being a successful vloggers involve you to be able to utilize these popular platforms. Mastering these tricks not only help you increase viewers of your daily video, but in the long run become outstanding influencers in your industry.
