Over the years, content consumption has inched away from text and has become more video driven and this led to the rise of the vlogging trend. Vlogging in India has become the go-to entertainment and has gained immense popularity throughout the years. In addition to its “in trend” tag, the form of video also got a boost owing to the advent of economical broadband internet that helped pave the way for the concept of vlogging and vloggers.
So if you are on the edge and still considering and contemplating the how’s and why’s, here is a list of easy steps that can help nudge you towards launching your channel:
- Choosing a niche: Vlogging audience is mostly niche/ategory driven, you need to zero down on what is this one genre that speaks to you more and is something that you have always been interested in. Since the audience is so experienced now, they tend to look for an overarching theme before committing to a set of vlogs. The interests can vary from gaming, travel, fashion or cooking
- Create a channel: Once you have decided on the genre, create a channel on a platform that you are more comfortable to operate. While there are multiple streaming platforms, it is advisable to stick to one platform then venture in others
- Defining a flow of the content: You might think that vlogging is impromptu, but even the most successful vloggers prefer to prepare the content of their video beforehand. This gives them creative leverage, though scripting does not necessarily refer to writing each and every dialogues, but researching and noting down the pointers and content that needs to go in the video
- Choosing your equipment: In vlogs, script is as important as getting your visuals and voice over right. In order to do that, it is integral to select a handy camera and a mic that will ensure that the quality of the video is maintained. In addition to the mic and the camera, a steady fibre broadband like that of Excitel will also help in uploading the content in a timely manner
