Keep in mind, vlogs come in all different forms from the candid style to the gonzo style to the narrated style, so it is less important what the specific idea is as much as it is something you feel passionately about and something that you can package in a way that people will want to watch.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

The passion should not be overlooked either. If you simply run a market analysis to figure out what is the ideal mix of content but you do not feel passionate about what you are creating, the audience is going to be able to tell and the actual product itself will suffer in quality as a result.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Regardless, once you feel confident in the idea, make sure that you do not fall into the trap of second-guessing yourself. You should have a strong intuition about which idea you think you can pull off. Do not go and self-sabotage by looking for the “perfect” idea in the abstract when the perfect real idea may be staring you in the face.

One of the best ways to do this is by looking at vlogs within your idea’s subject and get a feel for what many of the popular vloggers do – and not just in a generalized sense either. These vloggers are likely successful in part due to properly identifying their appropriate niche. This is the specific sliver about their idea’s subject that they use as a prism to view the rest of their content.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

This niche can be predicated on the visual format, the narrative format, and even the way the vlogger carries their self – this, of course, omits the multitudes of content-based categories. The point is, there is a way that you intend to do things which will almost inherently be similar to the way that some group of people does things. Unless you have a way to revolutionize that conceit, you are better off going with what is comfortable, that you are confident about, and that you have that all-important passion regarding.

That said, and we will keep saying it, not all vlogs take the same form. This will become painfully obvious to you the vlogger once you begin to purchase the equipment. This is because the different types of vlogs often rely more heavily on different types of gear. For instance, an action vlogger is not going to have the luxury of tripods for most of their shots. Simultaneously, a studio vlogger is unlikely to make much meaningful use out of a gimbal tripod.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

This is why once you have your idea and you know your niche, the next big task is more preparation. While this may be the last thing you want to do, you need to begin talking with people who create vlogs within your same niche, so you can have a better idea of what equipment is necessary, what is awfully convenient, and what is a complete splurge.

As nice as that may be, it does not at all help you with actually producing a vlog in the real world–the messy, messy real world. Because you are the boss, making a vlog is one of those endeavors that actually takes a great deal of initiative. However, you have to maintain that same level of initiative for years on end.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

One way to do this is to make a schedule, so you do not run into the situation where your life in the real world begins to impose on your vlogging persona’s virtual life. This way you can at least make sure that most of the real world chores and tasks do not eat into your recording and, most voluminously, editing time.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Speaking of which, it is also a good idea to practice shooting with your gear just to get familiar with it. Once you do, you can then use this footage to learn how to properly edit as well as see if you can identify anything to help you develop a specific gimmick or style. In doing so, you should figure out a rough ratio of how much each task takes and apportion it accordingly.

Of course, even actually shooting your vlog will not go the way that you expected it to, so be prepared to spend plenty of time reshooting everything. In fact, it is a good idea to get into the habit of doing numerous retakes on your shots – even if you already believe that you got the perfect take previously.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

On the flip side, you need to make sure you do not fall into the trap of the perfect shot. Basically, the perfect shot is a shot that does not exist except in your mind. However, in your mind, the perfect shot is vivid and immaculately shot. Of course, when you actually get behind the camera, you will never be able to see the perfect shot.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

In this instance, some early vloggers end up getting bogged down in the weeds and spend so much time trying to get the perfect shot that they are not able to keep the schedule they previously set down for themselves. Instead, simply take numerous reshoots of all your scenes and edit them together – which will give you plenty of practice towards that end.

That said, the greatest vlogs are not actually made, they are edited. Essentially, however good you think anyone’s vlog may be, just be sure to remember that they slaved for hours over their computer making sure that every line of audio synchronized properly with the different scenes and images that accompany it.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Once you get past the planning stages, this is generally where everyone else loses their motivation specifically because editing is not at all an exciting task. Not only do you already what footage you shot, you will also spend the next several hours dissecting that footage to find the best arrangement of shots to use for your vlog.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

At the end of the process, a given episode of your vlog is liable to be one of the most intimate and dull pieces of content you have ever seen. Do not dismay as this is fairly natural and is more a combination of familiarity breeding contempt as well as our natural tendency to be our own harshest critics. Just continue pushing on with this process as others will likely see the content in a completely different light.

To this end, you will need to once again develop a plan to alert your target audience that new content which they might enjoy has been created. A great way to accomplish this is to figure out which forums and chats the people who would enjoy your vlog engage with. That said, you cannot simply present your engagement as an advertisement, or the community will ignore you.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Instead, make it a point to get actively involved with your community, so you can develop a good reputation among your peers and provide them a reason to trust and believe you in the first place. Also, if you are going to try and create an online brand for yourself, make sure you have a large footprint.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What that means is find the various social media apps that your target audience prefers and make sure that you or your vlog, depending on how you brand the vlog, have profiles and a presence on these platforms. Whatever you do, make sure that people know of your vlog without being pushy.

Though vlogging may seem like one or more people casually sitting in front of a camera providing valuable information or meaningful entertainment, there are hours of work that go into the production of even a 10-minute vlog. So before you set off to start a vlog, make sure you understand what exactly you are getting yourself into.
