Modern pensioners are not surprised by the new technologies: they correspond in Odnoklassniki, keep accounts on Instagram, and the most advanced even have their own channel on YouTube. Video blogging is a useful hobby: it can bring quite a tangible income.
How to lead the channel on YouTube? It’s never too late to get to know the world of video blogging. The oldest yutuberche Mastanamme is 106 years old - this Indian grandmother talks about traditional cuisine. Have something to share with the world? Act! In RuNet, you will find many examples of older bloggers from whom you can take an example: they share life episodes, recommend recipes for delicious dishes, and some even stream games or tell about their travels. If you are in Moscow, sign up for our 50+ courses on video blogging from the Coddy school for leveling up your skills. We will teach you, even if you have never done this before.
Vlog: creation, maintenance, promotion
First you need to decide on the subject. What are you interesting in? Maybe you have your favorite channels on YouTube? Then start creating the first video. Write a script. You should not memorize the text - it will look unnatural - but there should be no hesitation. Practice behaving in front of the camera. Sweep, what movements and angles look most advantageous. The camera should give a sufficiently high-quality picture, a “jerk” is undesirable. Make sure that the sound is good and without interference; if necessary, purchase a microphone.
Competent installation and processing are no less important. Add music and graphics to the video. A golden mean is needed here: the extra special effects are annoying, and their absence can make the video boring. If the post-processing seems too difficult, you can learn from our courses. Remember the copyright to media content. The owner of the channel can use the library on YouTube - it is legal and completely free. Now you can open the channel and download the video. Most video blogs are on YouTube: this is the most popular hosting, it has more reach. There are other similar services, such as Rutube.
How to promote your channel and become a famous blogger on YouTube? Video blogging is an entire science. First, pick the name of the channel and video, make the correct description, select the appropriate keywords and tags. Collaborate with other blogs on YouTube, which shoot video of similar subjects. You can create channel groups in social networks. Do not forget to pay attention to keeping your video blog on YouTube and regularly release new videos, otherwise there will be an outflow of subscribers.
Videoblogs on YouTube as a way to earn extra money for pensioners
Video blogging can be not only interesting, but also profitable. There are several ways to monetize the commercials. First, the video hosting sites themselves give their authors the opportunity to make money on contextual advertising. Secondly, you can insert a short advertisement in the video itself. Another option is paid advertising in the video description.
