If you have always loved cooking and are passionate about the craft, why not show the world your talent and spread your love for everything involving food? One of the best platforms to share your passion for cooking is YouTube, and creating a cooking channel on the video-sharing platform is a great way to spread your love for food and exercise your creativity.
Although anyone can start a YouTube channel, it takes dedication and skills to become a successful YouTuber. To give you jump start on your YouTube career, we’ve provided tips to help you make your YouTube journey a success.
Incorporate SEO in Your Platform
Optimizing your content on whatever platform you use is a great way to gain organic traffic, attract new subscribers, and bring your YouTube channel to the top. You can learn how to do SEO (search engine optimization) by yourself or hire an SEO management agency to go up the search engines and YouTube ranks.
Implement a Schedule
Having a regular upload schedule increases your chances of being featured on the top ranks of YouTube since the website’s algorithm appreciates creators who often publish and follow a set schedule. It’s essential to keep in mind that quality will always win over quantity when it comes to YouTube. So, it’s best to upload a quality video weekly.
Select a Niche
Although variety can be great, most people love to go back to a channel when they know they’ll see a specific type of content. Before launching your channel, it’s best to decide what the main subject your videos are going to revolve around on. You have plenty of choices, from baking to family recipes, all are inspiring and delicious.
However, a ‘niche’ isn’t only limited to your videos’ actual content; it can also be the tone. For instance, you can bring humor to every video or be that cooking channel that merges scientific talk and vegan-friendly recipes.
Keep It Simple
When you’re just starting your YouTube journey, it’s best to stick with the simpler things that can provide decent quality videos, images, and sound. It’s best to play it safe at the beginning to see if you have a chance of getting at the top of the YouTube cooking game since the platform can be unpredictable. You can start by borrowing a friend’s camera or use an old camera for the first few months, and if you’re beginning to see growth, you can gradually start buying better equipment.
Create a Storyboard
If you want to ensure you produce consistent and fantastic videos, it’s best to make a storyboard for each video before filming. You can practice talking with your viewers through the recipe and decide which shows you want to get from the dish you’re making. Always consider what will be the most engaging and helpful for your audience.
Social Media Posting
If you want to make it big on YouTube, it’s best to not only focus on the platform itself but also promote yourself on several social media platforms. After filming, you can start your social media sharing mission by creating a deliciously inviting thumbnail for every video you make and post it on other platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
If you’re willing to put in the dedication, time, and effort to attract a following, YouTube can take your passion for cooking to the next level, bringing you the spotlight.
