Are you struggling to find your niche amongst
the millions of channels on YouTube?

You may think it’s best to create videos on a large variety of topics to appeal to the largest audience so you can get a ton of views and subscribers. The only problem with that thinking is when you try to reach everyone you reach no one or just a few people.

Before you decide on a niche for your YouTube channel, think about how you can make it unique so it can stand out from all the other competitors.

1. Do what you love
According to Meriam Websters online dictionary a niche is a place, employment, status, or activity for which a person or thing is best fitted. Create list of things you enjoy doing or are passionate about. If you’re passionate about something it will be easier stay motivated and inspired. It will also be easier to build a connection with people who share the same interest and as well as structuring your video content.

Your list may include hobbies, sports, books, countries you’ve travelled to, mountains you’ve climbed, places you’ve worked, people you admire and organizations you belong to.

Just do a brain dump on paper without thinking too much about what to include so you won’t interrupt the creative process. In my previous video I discussed the 7 ways to identify your passion. Click the card icon above to check it out.

2. Share your expertise
Are you an expert in a particular field? Perhaps you worked in the marketing department for an offline business and now want to utilize your skills to market the products online. Perhaps you’ve gone camping every year and now want to start a channel to share your survival tips.

I began my channel by sharing my web design tips then discovered that I loved making videos. I also discovered that YouTube was a great tool for generating traffic, leads and sales on autopilot. Perhaps you have an old channel that has built up some authority but has been neglected. You can fire it up with new and improved content.

3. Start something new
Maybe all things that you’ve done in your life don’t inspire or motivate you anymore and you want to start something new. You might want to change your lifestyle by selling your house, buying an RV and travelling around the USA. The cool thing about doing something new is that you are your own target market. This means you can easily connect with people on the same level by sharing the same thoughts and emotions.

4. Go beyond your limitations
If there were no financial or physical constraints what would you do? How would you spend your time if you had unlimited funds? Allow yourself to think or dream big then write down all the things that come to mind.

5. Research your niche
Find out if there is an interest in the niche that you have chosen. Search YouTube to study the top channels related to your niche.

Ask yourself these questions…

* Has the channel got a ton of views and subscribers in the last few months?
* Do the videos receive a lot of comments to show that viewers are engaged with the content.

You can also visit other social media sites such as forums, Facebook Groups, linked in groups, twitter, etc. Notice the type of questions that people are asking.

Type your main keyword into the YouTube or Google search box. You’ll see
a list of related topics that you can create videos for.

6. Hone your niche
Instead of trying to appeal to everyone in your niche, narrow it down and focus on one area. Even though you will have a smaller audience, they will be more focused and easier to market to. For example if your niche is about dog training, focus on how to train a specific breed of dog.

7. Make your niche stand out from the crowd
Find ways to make your channel unique so it stands out from your competitors’ channels. For example you can create your own logo, use different channel art, thumbnails, and upload a channel trailer that encapsulates your video content.

You’ve succeeded in finding your niche on YouTube.
Your next step is to plan out your content so you don’t get stuck staring at a blank screen.

How To Identify Your Passion On YouTube And Start A YouTube Channel

Have you ever had a job that you had no interest in? Maybe it paid well, but you had little or no interest in it. For example I lost interest after working 5 years as a science technician after college so I decided to quit and travel the world.

The same applies when starting a YouTube Channel. You need to find a niche, topic, interest or hobby that you’re interested in pursuing otherwise you’ll lose interest, motivation and inspiration and it will fizzle out after a few weeks.

So what is Passion?
According to Meriam Websters online dictionary definition “It’s a strong and barely controllable emotion. It’s an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction.

What are the benefits of being passionate about your niche?
When you’re passionate about something you have more energy, more enthusiasm and it spills over into the relationships of your friends and family. It will also help to override your fears, move you closer to your potential and open the doors to success.

Here are the 7 ways to identify your passion on YouTube

1. Create a list of things you like
Passion already exists inside of you so you don’t have to go looking for it. It’s what get’s you excited so you can’t stop talking or thinking about it. Write down all the things that you currently like to do or have enjoyed doing in previous years.

For example I love hiking, running , swimming, writing, making videos, skiing, martial arts, family, friends, nature, travel, gadgets and spirituality.

2. Priortize your interests
Take the 3 things you’re most interested in then list the reasons why they inspire or interest you. For example I enjoy running because it clears my mind, relieves stress, generates energy, gets me outside to enjoy nature, fresh air and stimulates creative ideas.

3. Research your passion
If you’re going to build a YouTube channel around your passion, you need to do a little research to find out if other people are interested in it. Enter your main keyword in the YouTube search box to discover the popular channels in your niche. Visit online forums, facebook groups, online magazines, and use the autosuggest feature in Google and YouTube to discover phrases that are related to your main keyword. You can then use these keyword phrases to create a video series for your channel.

4. Fuel your passion
One of the best ways to fuel your passion is to look for problems that need solving. When you help others it will add fuel to your passion because we are built to interact and help other people. For example it brings me great joy and inspiration if I can solve a problem that someone has been struggling with for days and weeks.

5. Fail your way to success
As you pursue your passion you’ll come across many failures and obstacles on your journey. This is normal so just embrace the problems because it will deepen your knowledge and you’ll be able to help someone along the way who has encountered the same obstacle. They will thank you for it.

For example Thomas Edison who invented the light bulb made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts before he had success. His teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” and he was fired from his first two jobs for being “non-productive.”

So fail often.

6. Success fuels passion
When you give your full energy and attention to your passion it will result in success. Success may come in small amounts such as the first 100 views or first 100 subscribers. As you invest more time and energy your successes will multiply.

7. I can’t find my passion
Do you struggle to identify your passion? My kids struggled to identify the major to pursue at college. I told them to just pick something, instead of continually stressing and thinking over it. When you give something your full force and attention it will spark something inside of you. Sometimes you don’t know what will light the small flame of passion that exists inside of you until you try something new. For example my daughter absolutely feared skydiving until she overcame her fear and just did it. Now she wants to invite all her friends to do the same.

There you have it, 7 ways to identify your passion and start a YouTube channel. Let me know in the comments below what you’re passionate about or how you discovered the passion for your channel.

21 YouTube Mistakes To Avoid And How To Fix Them

When starting or growing a YouTube channel you make mistakes that waste you or your viewers time. These mistakes can easily be avoided if you know what to look out for.

Mindset Mistakes

1. Unclear purpose
If you aren’t clear about why you want to set up a YouTube Channel you’ll soon lose interest and stop spending time creating videos. Instead pursue a niche that you’re passionate about so on days that you lack motivation you’ll still have the drive to keep going.

2. No goals
Goals are like a road map to your destination. If you don’t set a goal for yourself or for your YouTube channel you’ll take less and less action which leads to lack of results. For example your internal goal maybe to have an impact on as many people as possible in your niche. Your external goal maybe to generate 10,000 subscribers to your channel by the end of the year.

3. No target audience
If you don’t know who to target then you’ll create videos for people who aren’t interested in your content. For example if your niche is about running you want to create content that appeals to people who are interested in running.

4. Unappealing content
If your audience is not interested in your content, they are not going to keep watching your videos. One of the best ways to create content that people are interested in, is to type a keyword into the search box of Google or YouTube. You’ll get a bunch of suggestions related to your main keyword.

5. Channel Mistakes
Many beginner YouTubers forget to optimize their channel for their visitors. When people first visit your channel they want them to immediately know what your channel is all about. Therefore create a channel banner and add a channel trailer that reflects the content that you’re going to create. Include a description of your channel content on your about page. Also organize the content on your home page so it’s easy to find.

Video mistakes

6. Improper camera use
Most people these days just use their iPhone to record video but it needs to be high quality video that you record. For example make sure that your whole body takes up the frame in the viewfinder. Also make sure that your eyes are level with the view finder and look straight into the lens of the camera instead of looking off to side like this.

7. Blurry shots
You videos will be blurry if you don’t focus on the object. To prevent that from happening place an object in front of the camera and lock the focus of the camera. When you’re ready to go replace the object with yourself.

8. Poor lighting
Poor lighting in your video will give the impression you don’t know what you’re doing. When I began making videos, I just went outside to use the daylight. Later on I just pinned the bed sheet to the wall then purchased a few cheap lights to light up the background.

9. Lack of confidence on camera
If you speak softly and use a monotone voice you won’t keep your viewers engaged. When appearing on camera you lose a certain amount of energy so speak a little louder and vary the tone of your voice to keep your viewers engaged.

10. Not looking into the camera lens
If you look to the side of the l camera, it doesn’t look like I’m actually talking to you, however if I look straight into the camera lens, then it looks like I’m engaged with you.

11. Bad audio
When I first created videos I just used the built-in mic of my phone camera. This was a big mistake because I often got background noise particularly if I was outside. If I was inside the audio sounded echoey or metallic. If you use an iPhone I highly recommend the Rode SmartLav+ Microphone. It records great sound. Click the card icon to check out my review of the Rode SmartLav Plus Microphone.

12. Rambling
Avoid rambling in your videos. If you don’t get to the point quickly you’ll soon lose your viewers. Use the first few seconds to hook your viewers. For example you can say “in this video I’m going to talk about the YouTube mistakes to avoid and how to fix them”.

13. No call to action
If you want to attract more viewers and subscribers to your channel, include a call to action by using end cards and end screens. Encourage viewers to keep watch related videos by including them in your end screen.

14. Lack of editing
Don’t waste the precious time of your viewers by not editing out the ums, ahs, ramblings and mistakes made during the recording process. Use a video editor such as Screenflow for the Mac or Camtasia for the PC to edit out your mistakes or to spice up your videos.

15. Poor thumbnails
Don’t use the auto-generated thumbnails that YouTube produces. They won’t make your video listings stand out in the search engines. Instead create a custom thumbnail by using the free graphics editor such as canva.

16. Lack of optimization
Your video won’t appear in Google or YouTube if you don’t optimize it after uploading it to your channel. Make sure you include your main keyword in the title, description and tags so it will be found in the search engines.

17. Don’t copy other channels
Avoid copying the channel art, thumbnails, title, description and tags of other channels. Instead try to use your own unique voice and graphics to make your channel stand out from millions of others.

18. Lack of promotion
Don’t expect your video to go viral just by uploading it to your channel. Make sure you share it on your social media sites, embed it on your own website and also join other groups and forums where you can share your videos. Avoid asking sub for sub when commenting on other channels. Most people that do this are only interested in getting a subscriber to their channel but are not interested in your content.

19. Don’t buy subscribers and views
I often receive emails from companies who want me to purchase subscribers and views. YouTube frowns upon this practice and may suspend your channel so it’s not worth the risk. If you want to go the paid route, then it’s best to create an AdWords for video campaign which Google approves.

20. Lack of consistency
You won’t generate many views or subscribers if you only upload a video once a month. Try to upload a new video at least once a week on a consistent basis.

21. Not monitoring channel performance
If you don’t know how your videos are performing you won’t know how to improve them. Visit YouTube Analytics to see which videos are performing the best. You’ll be able to see if people are actually watching your videos all the way through, known as retention rate and what keywords they used to find your videos, known as traffic sources.

There you have it.

1. Be passionate about your niche
If you’re not excited about the niche that you’re making videos for you’ll soon lose interest and motivation. Sometimes you won’t feel like making new videos so choose a niche that sustains your interest.

2. Create a list of video topics your audience wants to watch
One way to find out what your audience likes is to use the auto-suggest feature from YouTube or Google. When you begin typing a keyword into the search box Google will give you a bunch of suggestions.

3. Set a goal for your channel
Setting a goal for your channel will get you to where you want to go. For example if your goal is to get 10000 subscribers to your channel by the end of the year, then make a plan to upload videos on a regular basis.

4. Create a series of videos around one topic
For example if your seed keyword is dog training, then create
a series of videos that are related to dog training.

4. Create playlists containing related videos
For example a sub topic of dog training may be “how to stop your dog from biting” Place all the videos related to this topic in a playlist so that viewers will continue watching several videos in a row. YouTube rewards videos with high session time which means better rankings.

5. Create engaging videos
YouTube rewards videos that have a high retention rate which means that viewers watch the video all the way through. Therefore create high quality content that people want to watch. Also try to break up the video by using graphics, music and transitions. Adding these elements will help keep the attention of your viewers.

6. Add a strong call to action
If you want to get viewers to subscribe, add an end screen annotation. Don’t just tell viewers to subscribe but give them a reason why they should subscribe.

7. Optimize your videos for search
If you want your videos to be discovered in YouTube or Google search, then make sure you include your main keywords in the title, description and tags. Also upload a transcription of your video content so people who can’t hear or understand what you are saying will be able to grasp your content.

8. Get viewers to watch related videos
YouTube rewards channels where viewers continue watching more of your videos. Therefore add an end screen or annotation that redirects viewers to watch related videos on your channel.

9. Brand your channel
Add a channel banner so it makes it easy for visitors to understand what your channel is all about. Include a description on your about page that encapsulates the content of your entire channel. Also include links on your channel banner that link to your social media sites or your website so people know how to get in touch with you.

10. Organize your channel home page
Organize the different topics or playlists on your channel home page by putting them into sections. This makes it easy for visitors to find more content that they may be interested in.

11. Brand your thumbnails
YouTube displays a thumbnail of your video in the search results. Visitors are more likely to click on an image than a text link. To make your thumbnail stand out from all the other thumbnails on the page include an image of your face or include unique graphics and colors that resemble your channel.

12. Build a community
Your YouTube channel will thrive if you engage with the subscribers and visitors of your channel. Therefore respond to comments by answering questions and referring to other videos that they may be interested in.

13. Promote your videos
Every time you upload a new video make sure you share it on your social media sites, upload it to your own website and also notify your email list of subscribers. You can also extend your audience by re-purposing your video content. For example you can transcribe your video convert it into a PDF file and then upload it to document sharing sites.

14. Be consistent
The more videos you upload the more views and subscribers you’ll receive. Try to keep to a schedule to upload a new video at least once every week. This will motivate subscribers to keep returning to your channel on a regular basis to watch the new content that you’ve produced.

15. Track the performance of your videos
Visit youtube analytics to monitor the retention rate of your videos. If you see that viewers are dropping off at the beginning of your videos, then make your future videos more engaging.

Bonus Tip
You gotta have fun

Have fun by creating videos on topics that you and your audience care about. Experiment with different elements in your videos such as graphics, music and, transitions to improve engagement. You’ll also make many new friends along the way as you engage with your audience.

Perhaps you want to remove a scene that appears in the middle of your video instead of creating a brand new video. Quickly remove the section online with YouTube’s video editor.

3. Add special effects
If you want to enhance the look and feel of your video online use the editor to make your video darker or lighter, adjust the contrast, stabilize shaky footage or even change your video to black and white.

4. Include transitions
When combining video clips on the timeline, you can smooth out the transition between the clips using crossfade, crossblur or cross color.

5. Add an end slide to a video clip
Want to make a quick commercial video for a local business? Drag a CC video clip onto the timeline then trim the end of the video. Now add a text slide that includes the phone number and website address of the business.

6. Add a soundtrack
YouTube includes a huge library of free sound tracks to use in your videos without worrying about copyright infringement. Simply choose a song and add it to the audio track of your video. The original audio of your video will remain plus you can adjust the balance for best quality.

7. Rotate your video clips
Perhaps you shot a video with your phone in the vertical position so it’s got black curtains on both sides. Use the rotate tool in the YouTube editor to rotate it to landscape.

8. Combine multiple video clips
Bundle several video clips together to make your own unique video online. Trim the videos to include the best scenes then drag them onto the timeline. Add a fun audio track, a few transitions and you’ve created a brand new video in minutes.

9. Create multiple versions of the same video
Perhaps you want to test several different keywords to see which one will rank before spending hours creating your final video. Use the YouTube Video editor to quickly make different versions of the same video. Just create a new project for each version then check which one ranks first.
