Starter Guide on how to be a Youtuber

Introduction
A youtuber is a person who entertains a certain amount of people depending on it size. A good Youtuber in the other hand does not encourage Sub for Sub and spam. Here are ways on how to be one.

Starting off
If you want to be a Youtuber, you need to have a Youtube account which needs a name. Think of a name that can make your audience ease to your channel. Think something ORIGINAL and UNIQUE that no one can think of when making their own.

Appearance
Now you have made a Youtube account, you still need to make videos but before that, don't forget "First Impression Counts".



Channel Appearance: There are many parts on your Youtube channel appearance-wise. Everyone is now using the One-Channel Layout and this will show you its layout.

The One-Channel Layout
undefined


Be creative, make your Avatar and place a banner. If you are satisfied with it, use it.


Now your channel looks spiffy and cool, now to walk the walk and talk the talk.


Making a video
There are many kinds of videos, from comedy skits to videogame footage. Entertainment is everything, if you don't entertain the target audience you must be doing something wrong. You need to record the video first before anything else. After making a video you need to render it using a program, you need to render a video so that you can upload the video quicker because the raw file is just very large. Once you are done, upload your video by clicking that large "upload" button near your Youtube Name. Don't forget "First Impressions count". The first 15 seconds are the most important time to connect with new viewers, if they like the video so far, they will watch the whole thing if they are entertained or maybe place a like or even subscribing

Processing and Editing
While the video is Processing, you need to edit some parts of the video layed out after you uploaded yours to the site but not yet uploaded live. (You can still edit after the video is live). These are the parts you need to edit while the video is still processing.

  1. Title: Your title needs to be small and descriptive, this shows that your content is clean (not language-wise).
  2. Description: This is where you can go crazy, if you want to tell more information about the video or your channel, place it here.
  3. Tags: Tags are the very important to make your video easier to find. Your video will show more frequent if an audience member will use a word that matches most of your tags.
Video Appearance:
  1. Thumbnails - are graphics to show off your Youtube Video, it should be clean and not cluttered so people would play the video more often.
  2. Intro/Outro Graphics - these are essentially not important, but if you want to flair up your video you should make an intro or an outro.
My Equipment and used applications
So, people are asking me what are the equipment I am using and the applications to record and edit. I don't use them but I heard these are great. (The equipment not the apps)

Equipment
Audio: Blue Yeti
Sound: Any Headset (I use an XtremeXplosive headset for 50bucks)
Keyboard and Mouse: Anything that isn't that loud

Applications
Recording
: Dxtory, Fraps, Camtasia Studio, Action!
Editing: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premier Pro, Sony Vegas
Graphics: Adobe Photoshop

Ok, thats about it. That's to start on making youtube videos

I really have to congratulate you on how professional your whole channel looks. Surprised you don't have more subscribers.

I've also tried getting in on gaming for youtube, but screen capture programs seem to hate my computer. Hopefully I can get a nice desktop computer now, though.

Recording cuts the FPS in half if you have unstable frames while playing a game. Goodluck to you and your future plans on starting Youtube gaming.

Ehhh, I'd say advertising is an important factor.

Advertising is fine, not just adversing as a spam. Those are just annoying.

I'm not talking about spam at all, but advertising in the actual sense. Telling your contacts about your channel, paying advertising sites and YouTube itself to put ads of your channel here and there, meeting and befriending more popular people... With how huge YouTube is, no matter what topic you cover you won't get too far without advertising, since simmilar channels already exist and obviously appear on the search bar first.

I was supposed to say "spam" instead of advertising. I made this in 1:00am, I didn't have a lot of time to do it. Well, I fixed it. No more misunderstandings.

The misunderstanding is when i wrote advertising instead of spam. Advertising is important, I didn't say it wasn't

This blog was supposed to be called "How to start on video making". I thought that the title would not be interesting so I changed it to that.

Entertainment isn't always the key. I got 130 subs and 10000 views just from building stuff and putting about 5 minutes into the recording, editing, etc. Nowadays it's just luck because every kid with an ipod these days has a youtube channel and nobody gives a crap about content anymore. They only really care about attention and being famous.

Yes, that is true. Nobody likes good content nowadays. Before there was gaming on Youtube, entertainment is pretty much EVERYTHING. But if you want more common knowledge about doing Youtube video making, this topic sums up some of it

Then.. what will you do after signing up to Youtube? Comment? That's not how to be a Youtuber. You can be a Commenter/Viewer if you only do that. (or maybe a troll if you don't have a life)
