Have you heard the news?
Views don’t matter on YouTube as much as watch time and channel subscriptions. [Link]
The more videos on YouTube the more potential for more views, the more points of interaction with your fans. So releasing an album with 1 or 2 videos every few years is probably a dumb idea if you’re looking to make money and make fans on YouTube.
So here is the solution. You now are a Musician Vlogger. Do a daily vlog. A daily music vlog.
Everyday you are putting up content. It doesn’t have to be slick. But it does have to connect. How do you find what connects? Well you try a bunch of stuff and see what you like, what your fans like, where the views are coming from.
Here are 10 ideas to get you started:
- (HIT) Cover songs
- Songwriting demos
- Album reviews
- Music gear review
- Concert reviews
- Booze/Bud reviews
- Travel vlogs
- Drunk/High music history
- Tech reviews
- Interview your friends
Here are some links for the tools you’ll need. But remember it’s not about being slick. Slickness may hold you back. So shed yourself of slickness in favour of real content. Show us yourself. Sing us your music. Connect with the world.
