35 Tips to become popular on youtube


We have been doing video blogs on youtube for arts and crafts for the past 4 years. during that time I have tried many things. No voice, voice no music, music, voice, God knows that some videos were hits others were a complete miss. But through the years I have learned many things that I think make a great youtube video and I want to share what I have learned with you. My husband and I have written a list of these to share with you.

  • Do something no one has ever seen before.
  • Have clear titles
  • Have clear instructions
  • Have good quality on your video, light, audio and or special effects
  • Have a great format: Have great intro, titles, etc
  • Have good keywords
  • Network
  • Be animated while you talk
  • Be funny, cute, entertaining, informative and creative
  • Have a set schedule post on. Thursdays seems to be the norm… never Sundays as folks are mostly out on that day
