If you are an avid YouTube user, this could be the most important article you read this year. YouTube has over 1 billion users! In fact, it’s estimated that 80% of all online video views happen on YouTube! Of that 80%, 45% of those views come from mobile devices, where the video player that is used by default on the Android operating system is just not up to par with Apple’s iOS operating system when it comes to displaying videos.

  • Why you are missing the train


There are three reasons why you may not have been successful with your video marketing campaigns. Firstly, your videos are simply bad and no one wants to see them. Secondly, you aren’t talking about a topic that resonates with people. Thirdly, there is a pretty steep learning curve when it comes to making high-quality videos and if you don’t have time or money then it is hard to gain traction for your video channel. You need to be able to make good content quickly and easily. If you can’t do that then chances are you won’t be able to grow an audience on YouTube. Fortunately, I have found a solution that will help anyone create professional-looking videos in just minutes at zero cost! Let me show you how…

  • How you can get on it now


There are a few ways you can get started with making videos. With some of them, all you need is your smartphone, and others require more equipment. Try out some of these tips to start creating and sharing your video content. And if you’re thinking about going into business for yourself with video, now is a great time to start! The video industry has grown by leaps and bounds over recent years, so there’s plenty of opportunity for new creators. If you have an idea for a series or channel in mind, be sure to check out our step-by-step guide on how to make money from home with YouTube. It’s also important to consider what type of videos will work best on mobile devices: shorter clips tend to do better than longer ones because they don’t overwhelm users when they look at their feeds on their phones. Remember: it takes time to grow an audience, so don’t give up too soon—and have fun along the way! What apps should I use? There are several free apps available that help you record and edit video content on your phone. Some popular options include: Socialcam – This app allows you to share directly to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Foursquare, and Flickr as well as export your videos in HD quality. Viddy – This app allows you to easily create short movies using only one hand while recording sound or adding music after filming ends. You can even connect with friends through Viddy Connect (or follow people) based on interests like sports teams or other topics. Replay – Record moments instantly while simultaneously posting them directly onto Facebook and Twitter for friends to see immediately without having to wait until later. Vine – An app where you can capture life in motion. Share your everyday adventures as short, beautiful looping videos that play on your phone and online for family and friends to see. Hyperlapse – Create amazing time-lapse videos quickly and easily. Videos made with Hyperlapse are high resolution, stabilized, zoomable, color corrected, and uploaded straight to Facebook. How much does it cost? Recording high-quality video isn’t cheap; however, there are a variety of low-cost alternatives available depending on what you need. If you want to film professional-quality footage without breaking the bank, try borrowing professional equipment from someone who already owns it instead of buying something new—you may just find that investing in higher quality lenses yields better results than buying a whole new camera body! If you’re looking to buy, you’ll generally find that you get what you pay for. For example, a good mid-range DSLR camera with a standard lens could run upwards of $800 and a high-end model with multiple lenses could cost upwards of $2,000. Of course, there are always used cameras available on sites like eBay and Craigslist for significantly less. But keep in mind that most pros won’t sell their gear unless it’s nearly brand new, so expect to spend around $300-$500 for a good starter DSLR setup. As far as software goes, video editing programs range widely in price and functionality. If you’re on a tight budget, you can get away with spending $50 or less. If you have a little bit of extra cash to spare, it’s worth it to invest in a program that gives you more control over your editing experience. For example, Adobe Premiere Pro is an excellent program for serious video editors and costs $20/month for their Creative Cloud subscription service—but there are many similar programs available for less than $100. When in doubt, ask your friends what they use! Many professionals would rather let their equipment go for next to nothing than pass it on to someone who doesn’t know how to take care of it properly.

  • What this means for your career


On February 21, 2018, Apple announced at its annual developer’s conference a new feature in iOS 12 that will make watching videos on YouTube more convenient. The company is giving iPhone and iPad users a built-in dark mode for their mobile Safari browsers.

  • Additional tips to help with success


Both iOS and Android support all types of videos, but in order to post videos on your YouTube channel, you must make sure they’re suitable for mobile devices. Test your video out on both platforms before uploading it. Make sure your video looks good and plays smoothly no matter which device is being used to view it. There are a few things you can do to ensure your videos will work well across different kinds of devices. First, use a text overlay instead of an image in your thumbnail. This way, users won’t have trouble viewing it on their phones or tablets. Next, keep your title short—no more than 50 characters—and include keywords so viewers can find your content easily when searching YouTube. Finally, don’t forget to optimize your description! You should add relevant tags and keywords here as well. This way, when people search for related topics or specific information about what you’re talking about in your video, they’ll be able to find yours right away! It’s also important to note that Google recommends optimizing each piece of content individually based on its own target audience. What works for one video may not necessarily work for another. So take some time to really consider who your audience is and how they might interact with each piece of content. The best part? Even if you only have one video, these same tips apply; simply substitute the video with a blog post or article depending on what type of content you create most often. Good luck! And remember: just because something worked for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you. Experimentation is key! If you need help figuring out what works best for your business, try posting a question on Quora or Reddit to get feedback from other entrepreneurs. You can also share links to posts that were successful for you and ask others why they think those posts were successful. If there’s enough interest around your topic, it could even turn into its own discussion thread where other entrepreneurs join in with suggestions and advice of their own! These are great ways to learn what works and what doesn’t without having to risk anything yourself. Before you know it, you’ll have a collection of tried-and-true strategies that work every time. Best of luck!
