3 reasons to start your own YouTube channel
It’s stupid to look for reasons to do such a simple thing, isn’t it? Until you realize that it is quite the opposite. YouTube is not an easy thing to do and achieve results. What could be the reasons to continue running a channel?
That is why we decided to analyze the topic of creating your own channel. While someone basks in glory, makes another business, or travels, while we continue to click on the "like" button and drink a cup of tea. This is not bad if you’re okay with it and you don’t think of creating a YouTube channel. But, if you want to, you always doubt and distract yourself with thoughts that it will never come into life.
We should motivate you then, right?
Reason 1: Development and self-realization
We are creating a YouTube channel to enjoy the process. As a result, we gain much more than just a pleasant pastime. While searching for content, making plans, we plunge into the topic and learn even more interesting and useful information.
In a few years, we grow into real experts who can not only deliver interesting content but also teach and develop other people.
The YouTube channel is also useful for those who consider themselves social phobic. These people try to be in contact with others as least as possible due to self-doubt and fear of over-attention. We don’t even mention starting a dialogue with others. Many YouTubers get used to themselves, to their voice, and facial expressions when they speak on a camera. Your perceptions begin to change and it becomes easier to contact other people.
What do we get from YouTube?
- Communication skills development
- Self-expression in creativity
- Accepting yourself for who you are
- Recognition of your own expertise
- Pleasure of doing your favorite work
YouTube is a perfect platform for learning to accept yourself, observe and change, develop your hobby, and improve social skills.
Reason 2: Monetizing your hobby
This is a favorite one for people who do not dare to start a channel just because they will have to work hard to make a profit. That’s true. YouTube is not about easy money, but about hard work, which sooner or later pays it all off.
Just think, you can do your hobby and get paid for it. Today it does not sound weird, but 10 years ago we would have also said that this is impossible.
Kids who just loved video games, cosmetics, or mixing Coca-Cola with mentos are now making huge profits, developing outside of video hosting, creating their own brands, or promoting themselves as artists. Video blogging is now becoming not just an opportunity for self-realization, but also a real income.
In the end, we get...
- High profit
- Income from doing our hobby
- Opportunity to develop in different areas
- Opportunity to create your own business
- A standard of living that you could only dream of
Popular YouTubers have already purchased real estate for themselves and their loved ones, travel to different countries, create their own style, their products, and have the opportunity to attend social events. All you need to be like them is motivation and work hard. It can take a long time, but just look how many years it took for those who are now in the top. Everything is possible, dreams come true.
Reason 3: Fame and recognition
That’s the main reason most of the channels are still created, but fame comes only to those who work hard and keep patience. Fame and money are about the same level and they are interdependent.
What contributes to our recognition? Our opportunities. Going where you always wanted to; meeting those who you could not even dream of; realizing yourself in any area or aspect. Did you know that young Russian YouTubers fly to different countries with the support of Google to cover events, interview, and exchange experiences at various conferences?
As YouTube representatives from Russia or Ukraine, for instance, they have the opportunity to attend major events and meet the stars. Of course, this is not available to everyone, only to the brightest, most popular, but still.
Think you don't stand a chance? Probably Katya Klep, Yan Gordienko, Sasha Spielberg, or Ivangai once thought so.
What about love and recognition of your audience? You inspire others to be creative, to develop, and in return, you get respect, trust, and support.
Once again, what gives you fame and recognition?
- New status and standard of living
- Love and trust of your audience
- Pride of loved ones
- Making your most important desires come true
Being popular isn't that bad. The main thing is not to get lost in all this and remember where you started from. You must preserve the simplicity and ease with which you started in your first videos.
We think we have mentioned enough reasons to start acting right away, haven't we? Absolutely.
Each reason individually can already become a motivation to start. You can do a lot of things if you start to believe in yourself, invest enough energy and under no circumstances do something that does not bring you genuine pleasure. YouTube is about that, always remember it.
