The benefits of a YouTube channel
I think the number one thing it does, gets you out of your comfort zone. I just want to start out by saying, that if being in front of a camera makes you feel awkward, just push on and take it in small steps. This does take some getting used to at first, but it’s totally worth it. Grab your cell phone and just start talking and do this every day until your more comfortable. It does take some getting used to hearing your voice on a phone or laptop. Remember you have been listening to your voice from inside your head your whole life. It is going to sound different when you hear your voice from outside like everyone else.
Make a video each day for a month, no one has to see them. You need to make this a habit so that creating video will become fun. This is what I did to help me become more comfortable in front of the camera. Don’t worry about what your hair looks like, or the clothes your wearing. These are just excuses. Just pick up that phone and start recording now.
You get to help people. You never know how you may impact someone that day. Maybe their day starts out bad then you do something, or say something that makes them laugh. I love to help people and doing it through video is so powerful.
Having a YouTube channel can be very therapeutic. Sharing things out loud or speaking out loud can really release some emotions and thoughts you have. Especially if you are talking about a topic you’re passionate about and maybe your friends and family don’t quite get it.
YouTube can help you start a little community, like-minded people that will inspire you and give you some awesome feedback. This is something I did not realize at the beginning when starting my channel. I feel that there is some kind of connection when people leave comments on my channel. This makes me want to do even more.
Do you have a creative side waiting to bust out? Well having a channel is just what the doctor ordered. Say that you are a chef by trade, but you also have this comedic side. You have these great jokes that just need to be heard. Think of it you could have your own cooking channel and sprinkle it with a few jokes along the way, not too many now, ….. right.
