Vlogging is here and it is so vibrant, upbeat and fresh with every post better by the day. There are so many things in the world that you can always Vlog about at any given time. But it all relies on your passion. Everyone has one and that is why you find so many Vloggers everywhere walking with ready-to use camcorders just to capture all those interesting moments they love to talk about. Everyone want to capture everything in their surrounding so that the can get enough material to Vlog about.

It is fun but you also need to be outstanding and that takes times as well as proper preparation and few tips on what to do or not to do.

First things first you need to know what you want to talk about in your Vlog before even writing a script. A Vlog can be of any niche as long as you are familiar and passionate about it. Life is always easier if we put passion into everything we do.

In relation to this you also need to understand your audience and what they want to see or are missing. The topic at times does not matter as long as you can own it and make it seem original in your own way.

Here are few ways you can make you Vlog posts effective in a matter of seconds.

1.     Always Have the Script Ready

You should know what to talk about in your Vlogs no matter the circumstance. Plan ahead and always have the layout script at the tip of your fingers. You should also have a plan on what kinds of shots you are going to do as well as the location. Never rush into Vlogging no matter what, as it will be a total waste of time. Always do everything as per your schedule and it will take you less time to finish.

2.     Have the Camera Ready

Vlogging is always better with the right kind of equipment. But always make sure you have your camcorder ready in case of a spontaneous event or Vlog. Make sure the battery is full and the spare one intact. You can even have the camera man on speed dial and ready at all times. Vlogging at times can be time-consuming and hard to achieve especially if you are working solo or with unreliable people.

3.     Relax and be yourself

As much as you are talking to strangers on the internet always try to be yourself. Everyone is different and brings in a different aura about them. So make your Vlog is more personalized by being real. You cannot fake it or be different all the time. The more you do so, the less people will find you interesting.

Even as people always love to watch random videos on YouTube they also want to know more about the Vlogger. And they can only do so if you are consistent with your little bits of behavior. Talk as if you are talking to a group of close friends, easy, simple and soft.

4.     Always Look At the Lens and Not the Screen of the Camera

When Vlogging always look at the lens and not the camera screen which can be hard to do especially if you have a flip screen camera. A flip screen camera can be tempting but always remember to stay focused and look at the lens and not yourself on the screen. The screen always makes you feel impersonal as viewers will not feel that you are actually addressing them.

5.     Be Consistent

Vlogging is a journey and a career to some. It is one hobby that you can turn into your source of livelihood. So always post and post in a regular manner so as to keep your viewers engaged.  Always make sure you Vlog so as to garner and not lose any subscribers. The more you post the more exposure you get. Be it daily or weekly just make sure it is consistent and of quality. The more you Vlog the better you should be. Essentially you cannot post the same Vlog content quality as you were posting a year ago.

So make your Vlog stand out with some of these tips. They are ideally effective even for beginners.

How To Get More Vlog Views

So, you want to know how to get more vlog views? This is one of the questions that everybody wants to know and the answer to and it really is not that difficult. The other question people ask all the time is “How to start a vlog”. If you want to reach 1 million vlog views, then the key is to put in the work. With that said, I do have some tips and tricks for you to get more views to your vlog.

Getting more views on your vlog is critical to it being successful. I say this because we both know that you won’t keep recording videos if nobody is there watching them. Do yourself a favor and make sure you follow the tips below so that you get the most vlog views possible.

Tips To Get More Vlog Views

Title Your Videos Correctly

This is perhaps the biggest tip that I can give you. If you are vlogging about travel, then title your video so people know where you are going. If your vlogs are about fashion, then title your videos about the clothes you are wearing or the tips that you are giving them. Nobody wants to try and guess what your video is about. With that in mind, if you can choose keywords that people are searching for online, then your video will get many more views.

Add Video Descriptions

I know this is something that nobody wants to do, but it does work. When you add a video description to your video more people will see it. The reason behind adding the description is so that Google and the other search engines will have words to tie your video to, which will give you more chances of coming up in the search engines. This also works because sometimes bloggers and other vloggers will add your videos on their site, which by adding a description and linking to your other videos it will give you a backlink from their site.

Ask Viewers To Share The Link

This is one of our favorite things to do on all of our videos. We ask our viewers to please share the link to the video if they found it helpful at all. It doesn’t take anything more than simply asking for a share to see results. I remember the first time I did this and to my surprise 16 people shared my link on Facebook, which ended up getting my video thousands of more views.

Send An Email To Your Followers

When I have a video that I really want my followers to see, I simply send them an email and tell them about it. This is something that I was not able to do in the beginning because I didn’t have an email list. Just know that if you have friends or family’s email addresses then you could always send the link to them that way. The more views you can get initially the higher chance more people will see in as the days go on.

Link Back From Other Social Media Accounts

How many people are you friends with on Facebook? Do you have a decent size Twitter account? Maybe you have 20K people following you on Instagram. If any of these are true, then link from those accounts back to your vlog. What you will see very quickly is that your video will get a large amount of views early on. Once this happens the amount of likes, shares, and thumbs ups will also increase. What happens then is your video is well on it’s way to going viral. Trust me, social media exposure is great when used correctly.

Everybody wants to know how to get more vlog views, but few are willing to put in the work. Do you need to work 40+ hours per week to see huge views, no, but you will need to put some time and effort into this. Just know that in order to get more vlog views you should always be increasing the amount of videos you have online.
