I’ve wanted to start a YouTube channel for years. But I kept putting it off, and always told myself so many excuses as to why I hadn’t started. So I finally did it. In February of 2018 I started my own YouTube channel. You might feel like it’s too late to start, but now’s honestly the best time to do it.
YouTube is the world’s best platform for sharing video content, and the community within YouTube is incredible. You won’t find anything similar on Vimeo or any other video hosting website – YouTube is hands-down the best. Even with their recent PR nightmares like that of Logan Paul.
So, if you’ve got a message you want to share with others, or if you’re trying to build a brand for yourself, your company, or you want to eventually make a living off of the platform – now’s the time to start. Marques Brownlee, the world’s most popular tech influencer on YouTube, had created over 100 videos before he even broke 100 subscribers, and now years later he’s at the very top.
No matter what it is you want to do (or get better at), it takes time and patience to perfect your craft and become someone worth listening to. I’m not there yet – far from it – but I’ve finally put away the excuses and have started creating content. And, it’s something I’m passionate about – photography, videography and marketing. I’m not a professional, but I’m taking the first steps towards getting there.
