Is there any advice for someone who might want to be a Youtuber?

Ever since I came to America in 2004, I have been fascinated with the American way of life. Here people don't wait for their dream to happen, they make it happen on the spot. There are Youtubers who have been on YouTube since 2005, but these people never gave up. They kept making videos, and now they are getting deals and living the dream that they wanted. I really started getting into it once I saw the different things I could do. On YouTube you could be a makeup guru, a game guru, a college guru, a fashion guru, a hair guru, even a damn guru guru. Many people say it is stupid to do that, and not everyone could do it, but my question is "Should I try it?" #college #technology #university #tech #film #editing #youtube #video

That's an awesome question. If you want to be a YouTuber go for it. It won't be easy but you can totally do it. I'm friends with a person who is an entertainer and he does use YouTube a lot. So let me tell you what I know from my experiences talking with him. 1. Have great content- are you funny, do you tell good stories, do you have a great stage presence? Do have any talents? If you answered yes to one of these things then your good to go. Figure out what kinda videos you want to make then go do them! 2. Get yourself a decent camera(s) you don't gotta buy the most expensive cameras but you wanna capture yourself in HD quality rather than lower quality it will be more visually appealing to users 3. Post consistently/don't give up you always want to put yourself out there and maybe eventually one of your videos will go viral. 4. Turn on Adsense on your YouTube account this is how you make money YouTube will pay you based on your views on your videos 5:Learn how to edit videos-this will make your content more appealing. I'm sure there's a lot more into how to become a YouTuber but this info should point you in the right direction!

Hey Salvin,

I think you need to first think about your motivation, do you want to become a YouTuber to make money or do you love recording videos about a specific topic and you have just always been afraid to put your content out there?

If you really want to go on YouTube, it's super easy, go on open your channel, add a quick description and START RECORDING AND UPLOADING. Ben gave you plenty of content to get started and being a Googler, I can also point you out to the Youtube creator hub: https://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/?noapp=1 where you'll find tons of resources to get started.

But before you do that, ask yourself this: is this really what I want to do? Don't do things because it's cool, do things because you want to!

Finding something you are passionate about, regardless of associated income, and that can be a good place to start. Authenticity wins
