Below are 20 legit ways to make your YouTube video a success so you can have videos that bring in revenue over and over again.

Method # 1- You need good lighting

The first way to make your YouTube video a success is to provide your viewers with clear, easy to view footage. If your footage is blurry or hard to see due to it being dark, you may actually end up hurting your chances of growing your YouTube channel. Clear and crisp lighting shows your viewers that you are serious about your channel and that you have taken the time and purchased the right equipment to make your lighting bright and engaging. If you can’t afford to invest in professional lighting right now, you can always shoot your videos near to the window for a natural and free light source.

Method #2 – Consider using a mic

The second consideration when you are trying to make your YouTube video a success is to consider using a mic when you record your videos. A professional microphone can be bought off of Amazon for under $100. You can use a clip to attach the mic to your clothing or you can simply set the mic on a stand out of view of the camera. A mic amplifies the sound of your voice so that you are more audible during your videos. This improves the listening and watching experience of your viewers which is likely to make them want to see your videos again in the future.

This third method to making your YouTube videos a success includes the way you present yourself. This is all relevant to your audience and the type of videos you are producing. If you are in the makeup and beauty field, you will want to make sure you present yourself well to your viewers.

Method # 5 – Keep your video short

Whether you want the viewer to subscribe to your channel, or to purchase your product or service, a call to action is important if you want to make your YouTube video a success.

  1. Hey Hassan!

    My wife has a Youtube channel and it’s amazing how people subscribe or like just because you tell them so.

    As you said, you need to ask it, otherwise they forget to do it 🙂

    And I totally agree about posting consistently and not giving up even though you don’t see results fast. It takes time to build a following.

    What do you think about the latest YouTube change of demonetizing channels with less than 1.000 subscribers and 4.000 hours of content?

    Do you think people with small channels are going to leave?

    Thanks for the tips, my friend! 😉

    1. Hey there Israel, and thank you for commenting. My whole point of this post, was to inform people. Thank you for clarifying me doing so. And its awesome to know that your wife has a successfull YouTube channel. YouTube is the greatest platform ever, when it comes down to video marketing.

      As far as YouTube’s latest change, I think it’s unbelievable. I mean, what are all the new channels supposed to do to compete with existing ones, especially when you have a good video. YouTube basically (in my opinion) X’ed all the new comers out, while boosting the already successful channels. It’s not fare at all. Thanks again for you insight Israel. Take care..

  2. Hi. Thanks for the great tips. I have got a question or two, though. First, the lighting. You said you’d need “right equippment”. What exactly is that equipment you mention? Is it really enough to shoot your videos near the window? Second thing – it’s somewhat related to the first one. What kind of video recorder do you use? Are the built-in webcams good enough or do you need some professional equipment? Thanks againg, bye.

    1. Hello Zbigniew! When I say the right equipment, I wasn’t trying to be particular. I know my LG android produces 100% HD videos, which always tend to get me started off right on YouTube. 

      And yes window light would be enough! But I would have to consider that recording taking place when the middle of the day. You know, when the sun is completely out and shining towards your window or where you are recording.

      So to answer your last question, yes, built in cameras like the one from your cell phone, should be ok to use. It was for me. Especially if it records in HD already. I hope this helps. Take care and good luck. Let me know if you need to know anything else.
