Step 1: Choose your Vlogging Category
This is your first step before starting to make videos. The category is very important for your Vlogging. It clears your aim and concept. As you choose education tutorials, your concept is very clear that you have to make education tutorials, if you make videos of the Tours Experience, then your concept is clear that you have to make videos related to the tours. You can make a video of any topic, just you have interest and knowledge should be.

There is some example of categories and you can choose any topics which are like you most. Because we like to do more work which we like more.
It has been seen that the public who are more interested in the work, are more successful. On average, 95% of the 100 public become successful and 5% remain unsuccessful because of themselves.
Step 2: Choose Best Camera and Tripod
If seen, there has been a lot of change in mobile in some time. In which too much work has been done on mobile camera.
Now there is not much difference between the mobile camera and DSLR camera. But both have different importance.
If you talk about a mobile camera, then you can capture high-quality photos and videos in it. But it does not have very good quality compared to DSLR cameras. The mobile camera is perfect for beginners. Or you can say that the mobile camera is the best in the starting period. But you cannot use it for a long time.
DSLR cameras are professional cameras. Its picture quality is much better than that of a mobile camera. Maybe all the microphones are supported with noise cancellation. But in mobile phones, many microphones are not supported. If the microphone is supported then the noise cancellation will not be working on mobile phones. But DSLR cameras have not any problems with microphones.
What you should keep in mind while making a video:
- Camera resolution
- How much is a megapixel
- Correct angle and position on focus person
- Sound quality
Now let’s talk about the tripod. The tripod does not move your camera, which makes your video recording quite good. This makes users feel good at watching the video right now. The tripod should be according to the camera. If using mobile then you should take a lightweight tripod which you will get easily in the market. You will get a mobile tripod for less than $1 (Rs 500). You will get a good tripod for DSLR up to $3 (Rs 1,500). In the market, you will get a tripod for every price. You should buy a tripod according to your need and according to your need.
Step 3: Choose and buy the microphone
The microphone is a very important piece of equipment for video recording. It helps to record your voice clearly. Each microphone has its own specialty and features to recording voice. You can choose anyone according to your requirement.
In the market, there are many types of microphones are available. Many branded companies make professional microphones which cost is high. But branded microphones can record your voice without getting any noise.
Types of microphone are:
- Condenser Mics
- Dynamic Mics
- Ribbon Mics
- USB Mics
- Stereo Mics
- Wireless Mics
These all types are very good for recording and you can choose anyone.
Before buying a microphone, check your mobile or camera properly which type of mics will support it. For this, you have to use the offline market for the first time to buy. Which will let you know which microphone is supported in your mobile or camera.
The online market is not right to buy the first microphone. Because it has been seen that most people buy the wrong mic so that their mobile or camera mic does not work properly or supported.
Step 4: Set the Lighting Equipements
The right light in videos is attractive to users and bad lights irritated users who watch your videos. So, properly set your lights according to the rooms where you want to shoot your videos.
Starting time, you don’t need to buy professional lighting requirements. You just need to set it up in the right direction.
Before setup your light you decide your background of the video. Like chroma (green or blue clothe) screen lighting setup is different, plain white or any color lighting setup is different. But I will tell you one simple lighting setup which works any kind of background.
Simply you just need three lights to set up your recording room.
The lights will be like this:
- First, you will put the light from the front side, near the camera, or above the camera.
- You have to put the second light on the side so that you light up properly.
- The third light will be on the backside. Meaning the entire focus of the light will remain in the background.
If seen, the focus of two lights will be on you and the focus of one on the background. White light is required for recording.
Step 5: Edit your recorded videos
Turn your recorded videos into professional videos. Video editing is an art that makes your recorded videos watchable for users. Its works as cuts and removes waste things in your recorded videos. Like cuts, takes bad light, and much more.
In the market, there are many video editing software’s are available. Some video editing software is professional and some of non-professional. But you choose editing software according to your editing knowledge.
There is a list of professional video editing software:
- Adobe Premiere Pro (Mac or Windows users)
- Edius (Windows users)
- Avid Media Composer (Windows users)
- Final Cut Pro (Mac users)
The list of non-professional video editing software. That is good and edits like professional.

- iMovie (Mac)
- Videopad (Windows, Mac, and Linux)
- Adobe Premiere Rush (Android and iOS)
- Quik (Android and iOS)
- GoPro (Android and iOS)

These apps and software are very easy. You just need to drag your recorded files to the apps or software and you will see the magic.
Step 6: Create Thumbnail
This is the most effective and attractive way to force the user to watch the video. This is the first impression of your Vlogging. If your thumbnail irritated or confuse the users then you will lose the users.
To create the thumbnail attractive, effective, and creative. You can use any software to create the thumbnail.
Here are some image creating software are:
- Adobe Photoshop

This software is amazing and you to remember one thing before creating the thumbnail. Thumbnails have good color combinations, HD images use and have full meaning for users.
The Thumbnail size (resolution) is 1280×720 pixel and 300dpi is good HD thumbnails. And the size of the thumbnail will less than 3 MB.
Step 7: Video Optimize for Best Results
It is not only for Google Search. It’s about Youtube Searches. YouTube is the most famous and the second largest search engine. And talking to video search engines then YouTube is the largest video search engine.
So, this step is very important for you. Read carefully and understand what we want to say? and what you should do?.
There are the basic three steps you must follow in this step:
1st step: You need to decide and optimize your video title. The title is very attractive and meaning full for the public. Because the title does not mean meaningful, the public gets confused and leaves your video, and moves on. The max. length of the title is 60-70 characters is perfect.
2nd step: Video description is the important part of your video. It describes your video before watching it the public. It also helps with searches. The min. length is 500 characters. In the description part, you must do a short description for your video. And you must use #hastags in your description.
3rd step: Use tags in the tags section. This section is available when you upload the video file. Use the latest 5 tags and max. 14 tags use. If you use lots of tags then crawlers think of it as spam and they will ignore it.
These all steps are necessary because the crawler does not read your video. The crawler read titles, descriptions, and tags.
Step 8: Use End Screens in your Videos
When some watch your full video then most of the chances, they select the next videos which are shown in videos end. In the end or before 20 seconds of your videos you can share your chosen video list.
So this is also an important part of YouTube’s success. You just need to do some things in your YouTube video editor.
First, you go to your YouTube account then click on the video manager which you see on the left side. After that, you will see the list of your videos and select the edit option. Add the end screen which is seen in the editor screen.
In the editor screen, you can add videos, playlists, subscribe, channel, other links.
Step 9: Share on Social Media
Social Media sites are the best platform to promote anything in a very short time. So, share all your YouTube video links in relevant pages and groups.
Always use #hastags of relevant topics when you share your video links. You can also use “@enterpagename” when you share the links.
Regularly share your links and try to max. Share your video links. Use all social sites like Facebook, Twitter Linkedin, Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and much more.
When you share all social sites regularly then you got huge traffic. This is best for your Vlogging.
Step 10: Regular Update and Go Live
Properly update your YouTube channel and get priority from YouTube. It means you have not to need to upload the videos in large numbers. You just need regularly upload the videos. It may be a week, daily, every 3 days, and any time. When you regularly upload videos then YouTube crawler notice you.
Live video is the best and new way to attract users. It is the new digital marketing. Its makes lots of offer to get traffic and subscribers in YouTube Channel.

Step 11: Write for your videos
Try to write something about your videos on the popular article submission site. On the article site, you will get permission to write articles. In the articles, you can insert any links which are very good for you. Try to write more than 500 words to describe your video.
You can also use comments to promote your YouTube Channel. Try this, it is unique someone knows only and nobody tells.
You can start your YouTube Channel on a very low budget. You just need to concentrate and smart work for your YouTube Channel (Vlogging).
