“Getting to Know You” Beginner YouTube
1. Introduce Yourself
Make a video introducing yourself. Who are you and what do you do? What can people expect to see on your channel? How often do you post videos? Make a video welcoming people to your channel, and let them know what they can expect. Try to give viewers a compelling reason to hit subscribe.
2. Introduce Your Organization
If you’re sharing videos on behalf of a company or nonprofit, make a video introducing your business and what you do.
3. Meet the Team
Create a video introducing viewers to the people that make your organization run. Seeing the faces behind your organization or business helps viewers develop a more personal connection with your company.
4. Start a Vlog
Just like written blogging, vlogging can be educational, entertaining, personal, whatever you’d like to make of it. Both businesses and individuals can use vlog content to engage viewers and grow their audiences.
5. Explainer Video
