Find what works for you!
When Lionel B. knew he wanted to create videos, he knew right away that entertainment news was what he wanted to share with the rest of the world! He chose to cover what he knew, what he liked, and what he was already interested in. Although there are tons of videos you can create, make sure it is something you’re passionate about!
You create your destiny!
There may be a lot of the creators creating the same content on YouTube, but it’s up to you to make yours stand out! The internet is extremely saturated with content, make yours unique and attention-grabbing. Lionel B. knows that his viewers can watch their celebrity news anywhere, but they choose to watch him because of the way he tells his stories!
Lionel B. saw his views and engagement soar as he consistently posted! He recommends that you post as much as you can to keep your subscribers engaged and entertained! Even if this means running around to fast-food restaurants for free Wi-Fi. Always make sure you are not oversharing irrelevant content. Tailor your content to what your viewers want to watch. Not everything is “big” news.
Experiment with new content!
As a Youtube star transitioning into rapping, Lionel B. even admits the change has been strange. However, opening himself up to new content has opened many doors for the content creator. He has met music legends and has networked his way to many opportunities outside of digital media.
“Clubhouse is THE new best app!” Lionel B. credits a lot of his networking to the invitation-only audio sharing app. Get your content out to as many people as possible. It is important to promote yourself, but don’t slide into DMs without friendly greetings, conversations, or simply “Check out my link!”. Have a goal in mind, follow back, and show support first!
Don’t compare your success to others!
Success takes time! Don’t be discouraged if you’re not at the spot you want to be with your channel. Focus on yourself and your content, you have your own journey to follow. As Lionel B. says “Comparison is the thief of joy”.
