Second, choosing the right niche for your channel
No matter what niche you target, keep in mind that this will be the foundation of a YouTube business. In order to feed the right video content to your audience, you must first know who is your audience. You can’t just upload random videos and hope for the best.
Three key factors for choosing the right niche:
- Passion – It’s crucial to have passion and authentic enthusiasm towards the subject you’re going target.
- Demand – Research the market and see if the niches you thought about are being searched for
- Competition – Find a great niche with high demand and little competition.
Every video has to have a purpose and an intent.

Four, creating awesome graphics for your channel
Your YouTube thumbnail is the equivalent of a book cover, and contrary to the age old saying (never judge a book by its cover), viewers will determine whether or not to click on your video based on its thumbnail.
When potential subscribers are searching for a blanket term, such as “makeup tutorial,” the only way to stand out from competing videos upon first glance is to create a compelling thumbnail image.
Instead of simply using a still shot from your video, it’s important to customize your YouTube video cover into a click-worthy masterpiece.
Here’s what sets the grand YouTube thumbnails apart from the bland:
- Use A Relevant Image – Get your point across quickly and easily capture viewers attention
- Add Text For Context – Adding title of your video or a few relevant keywords to attract targeted viewers
- Incorporate Bright Colors –Using a pop of color is a good way to stand out amongst competing videos
- Follow The Size Requirements – Use thumbnails size 1280 x 720 pixels for the best quality
