The questions most of you are asking me is, what am I doing wrong with my YouTube channel. Well today, we're gonna talk about it.I'm gonna tell you 08 things, 08 MISTAKES New YouTubers should not Make



tip number 1

08 mistakes that most of you are making here in YouTube. Let's get into it. Hey everybody, this is yunus, helping you create something awesome today. Welcome to the blog. I'm here to help you grow your YouTube channel and we're gonna do that today by covering 08 mistakes that most of you are making as new YouTubers. I'll let ya in a teeny, weenie little secret, everybody makes mistakes when they're new and when they're just getting started. Every small YouTuber that have helped, even me, especially me, made mistakes when they were getting started in YouTube. So don't beat yourself up about it, don't feel too bad. And I'm here to help. So let's get into these 08 things that you might be doing wrong on your channel, and let's see if we can fix them. So one of the first things that I would tell you that you're probably doing wrong as a small YouTuber is, you probably don't have a focus for your channel yet. You're probably still trying to figure things out, you haven't picked a focus or a niche or a theme for your videos and built out the concept of what your brand is. And it's okay if you haven't quite figured it out yet. It's just if, if you haven't, then you can't be expecting growth right now and you shouldn't be beating yourself up and wondering why you're not growing. Because the reality is, people don't know what they're committing to. Until you get something focused and something specific going on, on your channel, people don't know whether they wanna commit to this, whether they want it in their sub-feed or whether they ever wanna come back. And so, you need to get focused if you want to grow your channel. There are a few people that you probably look up to that have variety content. But they started YouTube a long time ago, a lot of them. Or their personality and so. It's something that, when you're just getting started, it's very difficult to do. Even PewDiePie, the biggest YouTuber didn't start out as a personality doing whatever he wanted. He started out with something specific, gaming. So a lot of times you have to start with something specific, get people used to you and then as you grow as a person, sometimes you get permission to change and pivot, and sometimes when you try to do that, it totally kills you channel because people just aren't interested in that thing. So just kinda be careful with this and pick a focus and understand that you might outgrow your channel one day, especially if you're very young and you don't know who you are yet.

Tip number 2

is about the making of the videos themselves. It's about your background. Making your background interesting and unique to you, making it a character in the video is really important. You'll notice that I have books that inspire me and I reference a lot of the people in these books in my videos, especially the videos that are about entrepreneurship or making money online. I talk about these people all the time. You'll also notice that I have my YouTube pillow in the background and that I've got my camera lenses. These are all things that kind of add up to what this video and many of the videos on this channel are about. So when you have your background, make sure there aren't too many distracting elements, make sure that it makes total sense to have these things in your backdrop. You know, the scene is important. It kinda sets the tone of the video and I think that's something that a lot of people get wrong. At a bare minimum, at least clean your room.

Tip number 3

not being consistent. Yeah we talked about focus, but also something that has to be said is consistency. People who show up on a regular basis, usually perform better. And I'm not telling you to go daily, god no I'm not telling you to go daily. That's not for most people. And when you're just getting started, it's not the best idea in the world, especially if you don't know if you really wanna do this. You won't know until you've done it a couple dozen times and then you'll know whether you wanna commit. That being said, at least upload every week and set good habits for yourself. And set expectations for you audience and deliver on those expectations. If you make a promise and a commitment to your audience, try to honor that commitment. Be consistent.

Tip number 4

is a little on the rough side because a couple of people are gonna take offense to this but a lot of new YouTubers are dramatically lacking when it comes to creativity. Everyone wants a voice. Very few people have something new to say. And it's a real issue with why people aren't growing. It's because they're not bringing anything new to the table that somebody bigger than them hasn't already done very well, or done better. I know for a lot of you that sounds soul crushing and demotivating but that's not really my intent here. The idea here is to get you to think and to think about how you can be unique. Are you doing something and does it look visually very different than what other people have done? Are you bringing a completely different persona and approach and angle to something? I mean that's what grows channels, even in established niches. And I'll give you a really good example that you might be familiar with. About a year ago, when Pete McKinnon decides to start making videos on YouTube, he was starting from zero and everyone told him it was over and that there were already too many photography channels on YouTube. He's 30. And it's like, okay you should do something else. Well, Peter decided to go for it anyway. And what Peter did was very different than everybody else. Peter had a personality that we've never seen in the photography niche. He wasn't stuffy, he wasn't boring, he wasn't talking down to people and he seemed genuinely excited and enthusiastic about everything. On top of that, he brought the style of a filmmaker and story teller to photography tutorials, in a way we had not seen before from any of the big photography YouTube channels, even the ones that were close to a million. No photography YouTube channel had broken through a million subscribers yet and Peter McKinnon managed to go to two million in just a year despite people being on this platform for a decade in the exact same niche. And he did it because, visually, his content was different, the thumbnails were different, the entire style of presentation was different. And then Peter's personality, shown through more than anything. His charisma, his on-camera presence completely obliterated the landscape of what we would expect from tuning in to a photography tutorial. And that's why Peter McKinnon is a success story today. He brought something new to a niche that was already saturated, that people already had established themselves in, over a decade and he proved it can be done. If you make yourself different enough. And if you are creative and you bring something new to the table, a new voice, instead of parroting other people and doing the same things that have been done over, and over, and over again, guess what happens? People get excited, people get interested, people share, people subscribe and they come back for more. Let's move on to

tip number 5 

Bad editing. And by this, I'm not attacking your editing skills so much as, well I guess I am attacking your editing skills. But when you're a beginner it's okay. The problem is, a lot of you are trying to be way too fancy, way too early. Stick to basic cuts, basic transitions and really focus on make sure that you're getting timing right, you're getting continuity right. Don't try to go overboard on things. I think that it's important to just, you know, do some very basic things and make sure that the editing serves the purpose of telling a story, or being entertaining or getting to the point, or you know, educating people, or whatever it is that you're trying to accomplish with the video. Make sure the edit is serving that, instead of the edit just being completely, stylistic and there not being a point to it. I think that this frustrates a lot of people. Especially me, when I'm watching. And I don't understand why you did that.

tip number 6

make better thumbnails. I cannot stress enough, how much thumbnails matter to YouTube videos. Ultimately before we see your video and your fancy editing and your on-camera charisma, you know what we see? We see a title and we see a thumbnail. We see a title and we see a thumbnail and we make a decision right then or there. And now we know that YouTube is serving up videos and we know that click through rates are a real thing because we have data in the new YouTube analytics dashboard. And so we know how much that matters more than ever. And I make all of my decisions about whether I'm gonna watch a video from someone I've never seen before based entirely on how good their thumbnail is. I am a snob about that. I feel that many viewers are. Because you're putting a really good video behind a really crappy thumbnail, it doesn't get the views it deserves. So save your video by making better thumbnails.


tip number 7

This is the one that was devastating for me, for my first what? 50 videos. No on camera presence, no on camera charisma, no energy. It makes a big difference in a video. Am I telling you that you have to be over the top, that you have to exaggerate, that you have to be crazy, stupid excited about everything? No. I'm certainly not. The whole point here is that whatever the tone is supposed to be in your video, that that needs to be communicated on camera. If you know, you want other people to be excited about your videos, you need to be excited about what you're talking about. If you want it to have a serious tone, then you need to communicate that. Whatever it is, that you wanna get across from your videos, that has to be clear from your on-camera presence and your energy. And ultimately, charisma can carry a video a long way, even when production values aren't great, even when editing is spotty at best. Even if there's poor lighting and audio. At the end of the day, there are people like Gary Vaynerchuk who have a lot of charisma. And Gary could carry a video that was shot on a smartphone, with shaky cam, bad lighting and not great audio, on pure charisma alone. And it would get views. So just kinda keep in mind, that your on-camera presence, your on-camera energy makes a big difference in holding an audiences attention. It pains me to say this, actually that's not entirely true. Don't be a daily vlogger. When you're just getting started, being a daily vlogger is unsustainable. And I know that a lot of you aspire to do that because you're inspired by Casey Neistat and I get it. But at the end of the day, it's very hard to sustain daily vlogging because, not every day will be a day that's worth filming and no everyone is capable of sustaining that type of life. And ultimately, it'll put a lot of stress and pressure on you, people in your life, and you may not have built up the editing skills and production skills in order to make that really practical and to respect your time and still enjoy the experiences in your life, and be present. So I don't recommend daily vlogging for beginners and newbies. It may seem like a great way to grow a YouTube channel, you might have seen a few people blowing up doing it. But at the end of the day, it's really not for most people and I actually don't think it's healthy. I have seen a lot of people try and ultimately fail at it. Not to mention the strain that it puts on people, even people who are good at this kind of stuff, it's pretty bad. So I've gotta tell ya, don't be a daily vlogger unless you really feel like you can 110% live with it for a year. Not paying attention to branding. Not paying attention to branding is a big deal. When you are deciding to do a YouTube channel, you need to make everything feel very consistent, very seamless. And that means that you wanna do things like pick out color schemes, you wanna pick out designs for your thumbnails, you wanna do channel artwork, you wanna pay attention to the aesthetic value of everything because you're gonna be judged on all of those things. And so I think that consistent branding, not just in your visuals, but in your style, your presentation, your message. I think that all of that's important. And I think trying to match up a lot of these things in your other social media platforms, and thinking about them, also goes a long way. You'll notice that most of the successful YouTubers are doing this. Most of them pay attention to the aesthetics and the messaging of their brand and keeping a continuity across multiple platforms. And it matters. They're treating themselves like a real company, like a really business, like a real show on television. And so you need to be thinking that way too, even from the very beginning.


tip number 8

not doing your research. Not doing your research is hurting a lot of your channels. You need to do research on your niche, you need to do research on titles and also potential tags for your videos. And I actually have a great tool that I can recommend to you guys to help you with that. I think that this video's gonna help a lot of you, and I made it with the help of my friends and vidIQ. vidIQ is a browser plugin and website. It's one of the best tools for helping you grow your YouTube channel. IF you go to vidIQ.com/roberto you actually get a 30 day trial, and you can use this tool.

You know there are a lot of people who have been successful and it feels like they're an overnight success, but the reality is they've been building their skills for over a decade. And it matters. I certainly know that I built my skills outside of YouTube well before I came to the platform, with a lot of advantages that many of you may not have. So, I don't think you should be putting wild expectations on yourself, and saying hey, I've gotta get to this many subs, at this time. I think you need to be patient, I think you need to practice and I think you need to give yourself the opportunity to grow, not only as a YouTube creator, but just as a creator.
