Well, then, make sure to join my upcoming challenge a five day: YouTube training series: it’s completely free. We are going to dive into how to make money with YouTube, how to come up with endless content ideas, as well as how to optimize your video creation process.
So if that sounds interesting, you will find the link in the description below first things. First, you of course have to choose a topic. Well, it’s easier said than done huh. I have a perfect question for you that you can ask yourself to maybe get more clarity around what you want to talk about on YouTube.
So ask yourself: what is something that you could talk about for hours now I’m sure that there is at least one thing that if a friend or someone asked you about, you could just talk and talk. Are you not sure? Well, then, what you can do is start talking to your phone.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but honestly it can really help. You structure your thoughts, so what you can do is to download a simple recording app so, for instance, a voice recorder. Now I’m using it right now, as I speak, so, but basically it’s very simple.
You can just you know, maybe walk around. It helps with the creation process and simply start talking or maybe, if you’re more of a writing type of person, you can start writing and see what comes up for you, but really give it a try and really start just doing Right sometimes, we simply get clarity from action and not from top also, I talked about how to come up with good YouTube ideas.
My previous videos so make sure to check it out. Okay, so now that you have your topic, you want to write your video script. Now, first, I don’t want you to overthink it right. I think it’s great, that you take action and you start filming yourself.
You just start going right, but maybe if you’re someone like me, it might actually help you to get a script first before you start filming. Maybe you’re, not a native speaker. You know, and that makes things way easier.
So let me show you how I do it okay, so let me show you one of the recent scripts I use for my YouTube video how to get your first thousand subscribers. So, as you can see, I write down pretty much everything I want to say.
I have my intro already where i simply shortly introduce myself and tell the audience what I’m going to be talking about. Then I get to my content, so what I want to share or the tips I want to share.
As you can see, I structure my content. I really like to use steps or tips so that I am well-structured and I really write down most of the time everything I want to say to simply be on point with my content.
I also write down my outro, where I encourage people to subscribe to my channel and, like my video, so give me a like if you are watching and you enjoy it so far and of course I am maybe summarize the video a little and yeah and Tell them where maybe they can see me the next time if you post every single week, you want to make sure to tell that to your audience as well.
Tip number three choose your setup wisely. Now I know that you know this might look like. I gave it a lot of thought because I did but honestly, you know this is me and I are really someone who likes beautiful things and for me it’s, important that my setup is also beautiful, not only comfortable, but especially when you’re starting out pick a setup that really feels natural to you right, and I mean honestly, even if it’s, a white wall behind you, it’s.
Fine, you just need to start filming and start doing, and that’s. How you’re, going to learn so choose whatever feels right for you, don’t overthink it and yeah next step film it. So now you have your topic, you have your script and you have a setup now.
The next step is to film it, and basically now what you want to do is to utilize. Whatever you have now. I think that this year we learned especially to work with zoom and with maybe Microsoft teams, and we are in front of our laptops all the time.
So maybe that’s, something that where you can start with, I mean the audio or the video. Might not be ideal, but it’s good enough and for sure people are more interested in what you have to say. So the content, then how your video looks like now.
The last step is to edit your video, and this might be something that might have prevented you from starting in the beginning. But I want to show you that it’s, really not so bad. As long as you are not a perfectionist, because you know what I’m talking about, so, if you’re just starting out, I would highly recommend you to try out Filmora.
This is a software that is editing software that I use when I was starting out. It’s very simple to use and it’s, comparably with adobe premiere pro that I’m using now a lot cheaper. So, as you can see, for instance, the basic plan costs 40 dollars a year and basically has everything that you need when you’re starting out now.
I currently use adobe premiere pro, which is more advanced, and you can see that this is comparably way more expensive right, so it’s 200 dollars more though I wouldn’t worry too much about it, especially if you’re just starting out so this is how filmora looks like you just need to drag and drop your video file.
So what you want to do is to simply keep the parts that are good right and leave out the ones that you want to get rid of and, as you can see, the cutting is pretty simple. So you just drag and drop it to a place where you want to cut, and you click this little scissors sign in here and that’s.
It and then basically what you do is to hit delete with the parts that you want to delete and you just keep the rest, and I mean I love how user-friendly this is, and I think it’s perfect for beginner YouTubers.
Okay, there, you have it five steps to create your first YouTube video. Also, if you have any other questions, let me know I would be happy to answer them if you enjoyed this video, give me a like and subscribe to my channel for new videos every single week.
