top 3 youtube tips!

Use green screens & extra effects to keep your videos interesting! 
  • My main source for green screens & overlays is Gabrielle Marie’s channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7afFvLLvTiWI97M0jaqgKQ). She has overlay & green screen ‘packs’ which you can download using a site like clipconverter.cc and use your editor of choice to edit the overlays into your video. 

Need help using green screens/chromakeys?

Make your thumbnails interesting & eye catching

  • Picmonkey is my life saver when it comes to thumbnails. It is the bomb dot com & has so many features, even on the free version.   I use the free version (#cheapskateoverhere) bu I still get so much out of it! Tanamontana100 does a great video on it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NqCW2iWsw8(youtube thumbnail size is 1280 x 720 in case you were wondering)

Post consistently

  • Make a video schedule. If you’re new to youtube & want to get into it I recommend posting at least once a week on a set day. It helps your subscribers know when to check back to your channel for new content
  • Make a masterlist of all your video ideas . Look to other channels for inspiration & current events .  DIY videos are really popular right now, but try to not use overused ideas.

Did I leave anything out? What are your tips? Let me know 🙂
Oh & should I do more youtube posts?
