Vlogging and Vlogmas. What is required to create a story that makes people love it and share it on social medias? Is it easy to become a successful vlogger? What more is required besides a good idea?
Many people write blogs and update them often. They do it maybe even one or several times per day. We also have those who have decided to do it by filming instead of writing. It is called video blogging.
Video blog or vlog is like a standard blog but the owner presents a film instead of text about something. If you have a camera, a computer and some good light at home or another place you have almost everything that is required for creating and editing a video.
As an author and owner of this magazine but also as someone who has followed some vloggers I have decided to write a reportage about this.
What about the story? Which content is required to create a story that makes people love it and share it on social medias? What can attract your new public? First of all, the most important requirement is having an idea. It should be a good one just to be able to decrease number of or eliminate possible competitors. If we analyze different vlogs on Youtube we can see details that differ between them.
The two very interesting details are number of likes and number of subscribers. These can tell us how good a vlog is. The number of subscribers is maybe even more important than likes because it shows us how many people really like and want to see a new or same video again. A subscriber follows you and wants to see more.
Is it easy to become a successful vlogger? What more is required besides a good idea? Well, you really must love what you do and you must have an own technique. For example if you want to present some clothes and try to influence people to use it or buy it, you really must be someone who enjoys doing that. You also must have some different pieces every time you want to present something new.
Vloggers talk much. They use every second to say something about what they are doing or presenting in the vlog. They keep describing every detail and really do try to attract an attention. We can see that vloggers have one thing in common. It is their performance. Talking and using body language are their tools for getting a viewer’s attention. For example, we mentioned clothes above. A good way of showing every piece is to take it on and just show how it looks like. It is like doing some modelling job.
Experienced vloggers normally live with their camera and they are used to it. They experience it as a friend. They can therefore not be distracted or negatively affected. Together with camera and vlog they enjoy. If the vlogger also look attractive as person then chances to success are even better.
Can a vlogger become rich?
Do the vlogging experience and unique techniques increase our chances to be rich? They can help us to become popular on Youtube and in that case we have bigger chances to be more attractive for commercials which of course can lead to earning more money than some beginners.
Becoming rich is probably possible for some vloggers. Hard work and patience are required for achieving that. Nowadays vloggers have many competitors and therefore it is not easy to break through especially if you do not have good support such as friends or family who help you on the way. Many vloggers who work with clothes or other similar products from different shops use to present different discounts and information about some ongoing sale. They also take the opportunity and work with marketing. They try to make a good impression of a product and a company that creates it.
Happy Holidays! That is what we can hear in vlogs when we are in December. That also means that not only Christmas is on its way but there is something else on the way too. It is of course Vlogmas which a term coined in 2011, and it is a combination of two: Christmas and vlog.
The atmosphere is almost the same like the one when it is Christmas. You can see a Christmas tree and many presents around it. The vlogger expresses happiness and acts very ready to attend the Christmas party at home or another place. So, if you really want to check it out, search for any kind of active vlog on YouTube in December and you will probably be able to find different videos which show what a real Vlogmas is.
