5 Key Interview Takeaways
- ) Go live on YouTube. Because we’re now living in the realm of watching digital entertainment, YouTube has become increasingly competitive with other digital media websites. So, one of the things that YouTube wants video creators to do is for them to go live. Live video gets 40% more retention than normal videos.
- ) Make sure that if you’re going to work with any company, you always become an affiliate. When considering doing a partnership with a brand, most people get a little scared because they don’t know what to do. However, it’s actually very simple and it’s a necessity if you’re looking to earn money from your YouTube channel.
- ) Get your YouTube videos’ worth. Remember that if you do a sponsored video for a brand, you’re going to get paid a one-time fee but your video is going to be up for years. So, since your video is going to be up for years, you need to make sure you’re able to get that stream of income.
- ) Don’t be afraid to reach out to companies. Have a pitch kit and tell them all about yourself, what your worth is, and what you do. Kimbyrleigha says, “If they deny you, don’t get offended and just keep going and come back to them when you have more subscribers. It’s just business.”
- ) Try jumping on some of those trends. Getting on trends is going to catapult your channel because when you post something similar to what other influencers or creators are posting, YouTube’s Suggested Videos will start suggesting your content. Although it doesn’t always work, it’s worth a try.
