YouTube shorts are the new improvements on that YouTube. It has gain popularity on YouTube channel. I’m start to experiment with this form of content creation in the past month.
So far I’m really enjoying what I’m doing. It is under 60 seconds and basically you have to put everything into that 60 seconds. With that constrain you can only put one idea into a video.
It is less planning and shooting wise is much easier. I am using an android phone to take all the videos. I quickly edit the video in an app and quickly post it up online.
It is a vertical video which coming from the world of photography and videography background, it is not the best type of viewing experiences. But the audiences are using the smart phones to view content so it is the conveniences over quality.
YouTube now try to compete with Tiktok. And other video sharing platform. The viewership right now is exploding for YouTube short. It is a great time to be a content creator.
But I recommend YouTube because it is a second biggest search engine in the world. If you make your content evergreen, that is the content of people search for then you can get all of views and hopefully make some money out of it. See above YouTube Shorts as an example.
Do I prefer making these kind of content? I have a passion for teachings that is for sure. If people not interested in time lapse like I am, I still can share my varieties of life experiences. Every wins when we share things around.
With the pandemic our lives are disrupted. I never thought of YouTube could be another source of income. But certainly right now people are making a full time income from YouTube.
My friend I am not suggesting you get rich overnight with some viral video. I am suggesting to you that think of YouTube seriously. It could be the freedom, time wise and monetary wise that we seeking.
