YouTube Video Ideas
videos on YouTube can be a fun and rewarding experience. If you post
quality videos and successfully attract a following, YouTube will
actually pay you a percentage of the advertising revenue that your
videos generate. The top earners make over $100,000 a year, but
typically most people make a few hundred bucks a month. Not bad for
doing something that you would otherwise do for free!
which videos attract the most visitors? While there is no simple answer
to this question, I have compiled a list of some of the most popular
types of videos that are posted on YouTube. Most of these videos can be
created by anybody. You can use AVS Video Editor to create every type
of video on this list.
you order lots of products online there's a simple way to start
creating YouTube videos. All you have to do is film yourself receiving
package in the mail and unboxing it. You don't even have to include
yourself in the video. Most of the unboxing
videos that I've watched don't reveal the person who's filming it. Some
don't even have the person talking. These videos are perfect for people
who want to maintain their privacy but still receive lots of viewers.
of the unboxing videos that I've seen are for electronics. The reason
why so many people watch these videos is because they want to know how
product is packaged and what it looks like when taken out of the box.
Others watch them because they just purchased the same product and
anticipation is building up. Watching other people unboxing the same
product helps ease the pain during the long wait.
videos are quite common on Ebay and many receive lots of views. These
are often watched by people who are shopping around for a product or
service and are in need of a good solid review. The best reviews
the pros and cons of the product or service. If all you mention are the
pros, many people will perceive your review as biased or phony.
are a few ways to create a review video. The easiest way is to film
your video like you would an unboxing video. For example, if you just
purchased a new computer you can film your computer where it stands.
Pull out your camera and go over the features that you like and don't
like. You don't even have to include yourself in the video if you don't
want to. That's the simple way.
you're reviewing an online service you can use the screen recorder that
comes with AVS Video Editor. You'll also need a good solid microphone.
Open your browser, set the area that you want to record and click on
the record button. Go over the pros and cons of the online service and
can also film yourself standing next to the product. Put the product on
a table and film yourself going over the various features that it
offers. This is the preferred method of most professional YouTube
reviewers. You don't necessarily need any fancy equipment to create
these types of reviews. If you sound like you know what you're talking
about most people will listen to what you have to say.
videos show people how to perform a certain task. The simplest kind of
tutorial can be created using the screen recorder that AVS provides you
with. For example, you can create a video that shows people how to
setup a website, how post videos on YouTube or how to sell on Ebay.
can also create a tutorial where you film yourself telling somebody how
to do something. If you know how to install a new power supply or RAM
chips into your computer, you can film yourself doing this. You don't
necessarily have to be in the video. Some of the videos that I recently
watched that tell you how to install a power supply didn't include the
person filming (except their arms and hands).
videos show people how well a product performs. For example, if you
just purchased a new scooter, you can create videos of yourself riding
the scooter around the block. If you just purchased a new acne
treatment you can film yourself before the application and film
yourself 3 months later. You can also use images of yourself and
the dramatic transformation in the background.
you're a girl who has a keen interest in various makeup brands, you can
film yourself demonstrating how well your favorite makeup products
work. This could also fall under the category of a tutorial since
you're showing people how to properly apply them. These types videos
have become very popular on YouTube.
you're an extremely opinionated person or have things in your personal
life that you would like to share with others, then creating what I
call an "expression" video could be perfect for you. All you have to do
is get in front of your web cam and tell others what you're thinking.
Many of these videos cover topics such as dating, relationships,
losses, advice and other things that can help people in their personal
people create these types of videos as a sort of "video diary". For
example, you can film yourself telling people what you've done so far
this week and what you plan on doing later on this week. There are lots
of people who find these types of videos interesting because they want
to compare your life to their own.
don't need a news channel setting to create a video that covers current
news events. All you have to do is create a video with your screen
recorder or film yourself talking about the latest news. The more
detailed and opinionated you are, the more likely you are to build a
substantial following. People love to hear the opinions of others
people, however, prefer to create something a little more professional.
For example, you can film yourself sitting behind a desk reading the
news like a major news anchor. Others like to create a setting that
resembles that of a national radio talkshow host. You're don't
have to be extremely professional to get started.
gaming videos with commentary in the background is one of the easiest
ways to create a YouTube channel. All you have to do is record your PC
gameplay using the screen recorder that comes with this software and
speak into a microphone while it's happening.
people who usually succeed at this are those who are really good at
popular games and who can have fun with their commentary. Making people
laugh or sharing things about your personal life will help you build a
relationship with your followers. The more personal you get, the more
likely people are to subscribe to your YouTube channel and like your
you go on a lot of vacations or tour around the world you can film your
trips and post them on YouTube. Many tourists like to watch these
videos to decide where their next vacation spot should be. Some people
like to watch these videos to remember past trips. And many of your
visitors will actually be people who live in the area that you
don't necessarily have to go on vacation to create a tour video. If
your current residence is a popular vacation spot you can create videos
where you tour all of the popular attractions. Since most of your
videos will be filmed while you're moving, the stabilization tool that
comes with AVS Video Editor should come in handy.
can also create home videos of your family having a cookout in the
park, hanging out next to the pool, going to the beach and so on. These
types of videos remind people of current and past events in their own
lives which is why they can generate a lot of traffic.
your family you can also film yourself hanging out with your friends.
If you like to ride dirt bikes you can film these events while they're
happening. Many dirt bike enthusiasts will probably enjoy your videos
and will ask questions about the types of dirt bikes you use and how
you learned to do certain tricks.
videos that people are more likely to talk about are bizarre videos.
Some people call them viral videos.
These are videos that are usually funny or involve something very
unusual. For example, I was watching a video of a Siberian Husky saying
"I Love You" to its owner. A couple months after I watched that video,
they mentioned the video on the Today Show. Apparently
it had gone viral and everybody was talking about it.
example of a bizarre video that I could have posted on YouTube involves
a Siberian Husky that our family used to own. About a year after we got
our dog we also brought home a kitten. For some odd reason the kitten
thought that the Husky was its mother and started playing with it. It
would bite the Husky's ears and our Husky was terrified of
this little cat. I didn't have a video camera on me when this event
occured but I wish I had.
What Do You
Need To Get Started?
order to film these types of videos, all you need is a decent video
recorder, a microphone that records decent sound and AVS
digital cameras of today are capable of recording video. The latest
ones are capable of recording video in 720p and 1080p HD. Many cell
phones are also capable of recording video. No matter which device you
use make sure it records in HD. Nobody enjoys watching a poor video
far as the microphone goes, I wouldn't suggest spending more than $20.
The best microphone that I've come across in this price range is
actually a headset microphone called the Yapster by a company called
TekNMotion. This microphone is available on Amazon.com for less than
$20. The microphone is capable of recording crystal-clear sound and
seems to do a great job at not picking up outside noises.
your gameplay is fairly simple as long as you play your games on your
PC. Simply open up the screen recorder that comes with AVS Video editor
and set it to record the area where the game is displayed. Set the
software to record audio from your microphone and speak while you're
Please note that people with
slower PCs won't be able to do this. You
must be able to record your videos at a minimum of 30 FPS (frames per
second). Some of the older PCs aren't capable of making screen
recordings at this rate. However, you will be able to render your
videos with AVS Video Editor. It just takes a little longer with a
you're on this website you probably already know that I'm going to
Editor. In my opinion, this is the best video
editor for beginners who are just getting started. It contains all the
features you need and isn't very complicated. And unlike most other
video editors, it doesn't require the fastest PC to work properly. I'm
using this software on a 7 year old XP computer and it works perfectly.
