Back then, travel vlogs were made for
fun. Travelers love sharing their experiences with others and also offer tips
to those who wish to have the same experience. These days, though, travel vlogs
are an excellent income source. Social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube
pay vloggers who have tons of followers or subscribers. If you’re one of them,
or you plan to be one, it’s challenging. Travel is already becoming a saturated
You should find a way to stand out.
Be an excellent narrator
Some people love watching travel
vlogs because they want to get tips on how to visit different places. Others do
it because they want to be entertained. As such, your personality matters. When
you can narrate your experiences well, people would love watching more videos
you upload. As long as you’re authentic, you can encourage
Find a niche
Although travel is already a niche,
there are still specific categories within it. For instance, some people focus
on what they eat during the trip. Others interview locals and immerse in local
cultures. You can choose a specific area of interest and focus on it when
filming during your trip.
Look for lesser-known places or experiences
If you visit popular destinations,
there’s a greater chance that someone else already made a vlog out of them.
These videos were even more interesting and comprehensive. Coming up with a
similar strategy won’t help. You should try to research the destination before
going there. Look for lesser-known places and feature them. You can ask locals
about destinations that not everyone knows about. Some of them might look
simple and not interesting at first, but they could be exciting for some.
Improve your skills in taking
might have great content, but your vlogs are terrible. People have a hard
time understanding your content. The images are blurry. You also don’t focus on
the important aspects of the trip. You have to improve your skills and learn at
home before going on a trip. Find new techniques in making your vlogs more
appealing. Invest in a new camera especially if you’re already earning money
from your vlogs. It allows you to take sharper images that your target
audiences would love.
Be genuinely happy
When you start to make a living out
of your travel vlogs, it doesn’t look as fun as it used to. You’re creating
content because you have to, and not because you enjoy doing it. If you reached
this point, you have to evaluate yourself. Go back to the time when you first
made a vlog. Look at how genuinely happy you were. You should bring back that
spirit. Even if you’re passionate about traveling, your videos won’t appear
that way if you treat each trip as a job. Your most loyal followers will notice
these changes and decide not to follow you anymore.
You can do better with your vlogs and
attract more people to view what you offer with these changes.
