So you want to be a vlogger! It seems like an unachievable dream, but it can happen. First you need to find your inspiration so be sure to check out our list of career girls who started their own business, and then you need to check out these 10 steps to becoming a vlogger.
Find your niche
People who talk about their passions are most interesting, so find your niche! Do you love fashion for toddlers? Or love painting with elderly people? Be very specific about your main topics, and like-minded people (your viewers!) will find you!
Find your focus group
Who are your viewers? Female or male? Working grown ups or happy students? It helps you to pinpoint your topics, to decide whether or not to pick certain topics and it’s interesting input for future sales meetings! Read this list of websites you should read if you want to be successful for inspiration.
Interact with your viewers
Ask your viewers questions. Answer theirs. Be open to input and look for ways to improve yourself. Keep in mind that most people aren’t mean spirited, so let down your guard and ask people’s opinions! Being kind and approachable is a great way to start a conversation, even with haters. Read how to deal with negative feedback here so you can deal with anything!
Cooperate with others
Is your best friend a genius in editing? Or do you know someone who can help you with your leader? Is one of your friends a blogger? Ask them for advice, or even better; cooperate! Half the work, twice the network!
Finding your nice, finding your style, finding a routine… that stuff takes time! Don’t expect overnight success, even if you work your butt off! Running a successful vlog is more like running a marathon than a sprint. You’re in it for the long haul.
Don’t let the success of others intimidate you
Some vloggers have 1000 views in one day. Some have millions of followers, likes or comments. Don’t let those numbers get you down! Focus on your own stuff, and be sure to do your best. The rest is not up to you, so don’t stress over the success of others. Here’s why you shouldn’t compare yourself to what you see on the internet.
