How to make unboxing videos for YouTube.

Find out what you need to know to create entertaining unboxing videos for YouTube.

The popularity of unboxing videos seems strange, but it makes sense when you think about it — after all, who doesn’t like opening presents? Unboxing videos give you that same experience, but without having to pay for the actual product.

If you’re looking to get in on the trend, here are some useful tips about how to make unboxing videos for YouTube.

Pick your niche.

There are so many unboxing videos on YouTube that the scene is extremely competitive. Choose a niche you think will attract a dedicated audience. It doesn’t matter whether you’re unboxing toys or make-up, but you should stick to your selection.

Use proper equipment.

You’ll need a camera and a tripod to keep your camera steady. Nobody likes a shaky video. Get good lighting and a high-quality microphone. Also, keep a small knife and scissors on hand to open those stubborn packages.

Keep an eye on the clock.

If the product you’ve unboxed requires some explanation, by all means, give it. But also make sure that you don’t bore your viewers with rambling descriptions. An unboxing video should ideally be about five (but no more than ten) minutes long.

Show the product in action.

Take your videos one step further by showing how to use the unboxed product. You may not be able to do this with some items — like heavy tools — but certainly consider giving the product a try if it’s reasonably doable.

Learn to edit videos.

You can fix many mistakes and make your videos more engaging to viewers with good video editing software. For example, Adobe Premiere Pro lets you trim footage, add and edit audio, enhance colors, and upload your unboxing videos to YouTube directly from the app.
