How ready are you to grow and succeed with your vlogs this year?! If you want to make your YouTube channel even more of a success in 2017 than it was in 2016, then you should make these three goals part of your New Year’s resolutions. These goals will definitely get you thinking more about how to grow your YouTube vlog channel even bigger!
Build a Community For Your YouTube Vlog Channel
There is nothing more important to your YouTube channel than your community. You want to be in the position where you have a number of fans that really enjoy your vlogs each and every time that they are released, share them with their friends, comment on your videos, make suggestions on what you can do next, and really encourage you to keep going with your amazing YouTube channel.
If you’re interested in this goal, there will be a number of steps that you need to take before you can accomplish it. The first step is to always release a new vlog on the same schedule – such as every Monday, for example. This way your YouTube viewers will always know when to look out for your next great vlog.
Another very important step is to reply to the fantastic comments that you receive and interact with your viewers on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter. You can even give your YouTube community a cool name to go by, and use it consistently within your content. These are all very beneficial things that vloggers should consider for long term success. Here’s our guide on establishing a YouTube community for your vlogs.
A Vlogger Who is an Active Learner
Let’s be honest: none of us know everything! We may think that we know an awful lot, but that can often mean that we close ourselves off to learning new and exciting things. Being an active learner means that you have to accept that you do not know everything, and you do not always know the best way to do everything.
This transition of thinking will mean that you will be much more likely to come across the great opportunities to learn that are around you.
You could learn a filming approaches, learn how to operate a new editing techniques, camera tricks, social media strategies, or even just learn a little bit more about what your viewers want to see in your vlogs! You could even decide to learn a new skill with your viewers, and vlog about it!
By being an active learner, you will find yourself much richer from having learned something totally new, and if you make really fun vlogs about the learning process you will definitely start to inspire people all over the world. Wouldn’t it be amazing if people from many different countries all start to learn the violin because of your hilarious vlogs about you learning the violin?
The other side of this goal is to help you come across new strategies that can be used to grow your YouTube channel.
As a vlogger, it’s important to always be learning about new marketing opportunities, strategies, and trends. You must be able to adapt to new trends and promotional strategies that could lead to your audience growing and more YouTube milestones being achieved.
Regular Efforts to Speak to Those Watching Your Vlogs
This is something that a lot of vloggers do really well, but over time many can let themselves slide – and suddenly, they haven’t done anything for weeks and weeks. This is not good because you can instantly lose a huge number of subscribers, because you are not engaging with them.
Engaging with your audience on social media is not complicated, so you should not worry if you have never done anything like this before. For absolute beginners, we would advise that you set up a social media presence through a variety of sites that you feel are relevant. The important thing is to offer different content on each social media platform or else fans will have no reason to follow you on them separately.
For example, you can post behind-the-scenes images on Facebook, preview clips on Instagram, and share thoughts, opinions, news on Twitter.
Keeping a constantly open line of communication to your viewers is the best way to keep them. You can engage with your viewers on social media by asking them for vlog topic ideas, or questions for you that could be answered in your next vlog!
By communicating with your audience on a consistent basis, you will establish a stronger relationship with them. A strong relationship with your viewers and subscribers will lead to an engaging community for your YouTube channel. And an engaging YouTube community will lead to more milestones being achieved!
So there you have it – these are 3 big goals that you should look into this year. We hope that you have been totally inspired by them, and that you enjoy pushing yourself through these fun challenges!
