Vlogging is becoming popular these days. Some people become social media influencers because of their vlogs. They publish their content via YouTube and millions of people around the world end up following them. They might not be huge celebrities, but they have a large following. As a result, they rake in large amounts of money from YouTube. They also cash in on advertisers.
It does not
happen overnight though. Just because you have a camera and you can speak in
front of it does not mean you will succeed in vlogging. You need to be smart in
determining what content to put out. You also need to edit the videos well
When you are
abroad and you intend to use this trip for your next vlog, these are some tips to
make it a huge success.
Do not film
There is no need
to film everything since it could be a long and boring video. You can take
different shots, but you need to edit them and choose the ones that people can
related with the most. Include the takes that are funny, interesting, and
shocking. People love it when their emotions are shaken because of what they
see. Besides, when you keep filming, you will not enjoy the experience anymore.
Look for an
You need to
think about the concept of
your next vlog. For instance, if you are traveling to a country that
many people are already familiar of, like France, you cannot feature the same
places that people already know. You can conduct an interview among locals and
ask questions that others might find interesting. Always look for a way to
capture the attention of people. If you are bored yourself, it is not an
excellent vlog idea.
Even if you
traveled an entire country for five days, no one would want to watch your vlog
that lasts for thirty minutes. They will stop somewhere in the middle. You need
3-5 minutes of videos only. It is enough to cover everything that you have
traveled to, but also retain the attention of the viewers.
If you notice the social media influencers these days, they are always confident to show themselves in front of the camera. They cannot influence anyone by hiding behind the lens. Make sure that you are the center of whatever vlog you decide to make. You will also build trust and confidence among your followers. Apart from your face, you also need to include the faces of locals and other interesting people you meet along the way. Ask questions or find a way to include them in your vlog.
If you are
already making money from vlogging, it is not too much to ask of you to spend
money on a quality camera. You should also buy a good tripod and image
stabilizer. No one wants to watch a vlog where everything is shaky or blurry.
Most of all, you
need to have fun. Do not forget that you are traveling not only because you
want to share the experience with others, but you also want to see
