Before you even open your YouTube channel if you want to learn how to become a successful YouTuber you must ask this question:
What are you trying to achieve?
Do you just want a lot of people to see your video or you need people to click through to another website and complete an action?
Do you need to use your video to provide potential customers with more opportunities to interact with your brand?
Here is How to Become a Successful YouTuber:
Don’t try to be someone else.

Before I talk about the content, learning how to become a successful YouTuber can’t go without learning about the keywords you choose.
But Silvia, What are keywords? You might ask. According to dictionary Keyword ia
In other words..
A keyword, in the context of search engine optimization, is a particular word or phrase that describes the contents of a Web page. Keywords are intended to act as shortcuts that sum up an entire page. Keywords form part of a Web page’s metadata and help search engines match a page to with an appropriate search query.
Content – viral, series & how-tos
When it comes to YouTube you need to think of how to create your content.
What will your videos be about?
Brainstorm some ideas that will bring you to the right type of video to start with.
Here are few content ideas you could create video about:
- Couple Vlog
- Funny animals
- Collection of Products
- Favourite/Best of
- Haul Videos
- Comedy/Skit Videos
- Gaming Videos
- Product reviews
Know your competition.
You need to know who is in the game in order to become a great player, Getting to know who was and is your competition is vital if you want to become a successful youtuber.
How can you know your competition?
Do a good research using your keywords and see who else is coming up for that specific keyword. That’s your competition.
Get to know what are some key features of their channel and their videos so by that way you can work on improving your technique.
Collaboration with the community
Understand that YouTube is a community and what happens when you’re in a community? You communicate!
Get to know other people, YouTubers or even your viewers and build a relationship with them.
By that way you will get to earn their trust and they will remember you!
Don’t do something just because you think it might get views.
I’ll do pranks videos because everyone is doing it and i’ll surely be successful!
Don’t do something just because someone else did it, You have to understand that success comes when you are passionate about what you do.
Learn where your passion lies, and go for that!
Create a Awesome video.
Another thing to do is to learn the basics of filming and editing videos for YouTube!
No one will enjoy a shaky, un-edited and boring video.
Try to put your personality in the video to bring the real awesomeness that is within you.
There are many awesome tutorials on how to film and edit videos.
Once you’ve choose your editing software then you can start learning in order to become a successful YouTuber!
Fill-out your video details.
I see this mistake so many times!
People will film and upload a video, that’s great but if you want to be ahead of others you need to work even harder.
Learn the basics of fillinf out your video details.
Titles, Description and tags play a big role in a video along with the right keyword.
TubeBuddy is another great tool that can help you organize your video filling out!
Use the “Featured Videos” section.
Utilize your youtube homepage by filming a featured video. Make sure you create a really awesome video that everyone will enjoy watching once they stumble upon your channel.
Introduction videos work really well, by that way many viewers will get to know who this great person is!
Use annotations to insert links to other videos
At the end of every video it’s advisable to use annotations and end screens to display some more videos that will hook the viewer to watch more of your videos!
We want them to keep watching rather than clicking another video from another channel.
Here is a great tutorial on how to use End Screens:
A good tip would be:
Work on your end screen graphics to create a interesting and captivating screen that everyone will love watching at the end of your videos!
Interact with high value users.
Get to know who are the high value users of your niche and interact with them, you will be surprise the response you will get and you might end up collaborating with few of them after building a solid relationship.
The goal is to build a relationship rather than seeking to get something from them.
Learn how to become a successful youtuber by using social media.
This is super improtant,
Once you hi publish,
You need to use the social media to promote your video.
I don’t mean go spamming the entire univerce 🙂
I mean, promote your video through your main Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest & Instagram accounts.
Another great way to promote is using Facebook adn Google+ groups. They are great for reaching out to more number of people.
