Video ideas to get you started

Let viewers get to know you. YouTube is a great place to share personal stories, ideas and opinions. The more viewers get to know you, the more interested they’ll be in listening to what you have to say.

  1. Reviews

Viewers love reviews. Whether it’s a new product, movie or recipe. Learning from others is a valuable way to gather information.

  1. Comparisons

Taking reviews one step further, help others make a buying decision by comparing two products, services or techniques. Share what you think are the pros and cons of each and which one you like better.

  1. Challenges

Challenges are a fun way to engage with an audience and tap into what’s trending. Put your spin on the latest YouTube craze and relate it to what your channel is about.

  1. Opinions

Offering your opinion is an easy way to engage with your audience. Encourage viewers to comment and start a conversation.

  1. Lists

Like reviews and comparisons, viewers love lists. Share your favourite techniques or the 10 top tools you use.

Editing for beginners
