1. Introduction: So you wanna make a YouTube video and you don't know where to stop. Or you have already been making YouTube videos, but you're missing that professional workflow where you don't know how to pre-plan, how to film, edit, and upload the video. Well, you have come to a right place. My name is Eddie saying I'm a freelancer, videographer and a photographer, and I also have a YouTube channel. So in this video we'll be talking about making a YouTube video from scratch. Very, we would talk about how to find the topics to fill new YouTube videos until the point there'll be or uploading. And what's the most efficient way to upload a YouTube video to get more traction and get more views. So let's get started with the class. 2. Things you should know beforehand: So before doing anything, I'm going to assume that you already know your niche. By niche, I mean, is that you already know what type of video you would want to make. A niche can be anything from bodybuilding, makeup, making camera tutorials, gaming videos, videos about exploring, videos about backpacking, views about solo camping. It can be, there can be so many different types of niche. You should have at least a basic idea about what's your niche and what type of, in what direction you would want to go, what type of videos you want to make. And once you know your niche, you should know at least, you should have at least a basic knowledge about how to film a video from your camera. So you should have a camera which films are decent video. It has all the decent manual settings for. If you're not confident with that, you can check my other course where I'm talking about basic video settings. And once you're done with that class, then you can continue with this class. So these are the things which you should know before starting this class. The first thing is your niche, and the second thing is knowing basic video settings to film from your video camera. Guys. So now we're done with less than two, but I also just wanted to add something which I didn't add in the main clause is that say for example with niche, you don't really have to know exactly what your niches to continue this class, even if you have a basic idea of what type of media you would be filming, you can still continue because in the next lessons, I will be talking about the importance of niche and the type of videos you can search depending on what interests you or what fascinates year. So yeah, let's move on to the next one. 3. Why having a niche is important: If you don't have any niche, what's going to happen is that one week you would want to make a video about something else. Say for example, one week you would want to make a video about bodybuilding. Next week you would want to make a video about exploring the place. On third week you would want to make a video about how to make something. So it's like this. There are three different types. So it's really hard for audience to get attracted to your channel. They might get attracted to that one video. But then if they see the other videos, they'll, they'll be like, oh, I don't really associate with those videos, so I'm not gonna subscribe to him. That was just one video I watched. I liked. I even give a light to the video and then I'm gonna, I'm not gonna subscribe. So that's why it's really important to the stick to one niche in the beginning. So that, for example, if someone comes to my channel, and right now we're making a lot of videos about the Netherlands because of the logged on, we cannot travel overseas. So if someone comes to our channel and if they are seeing that, this video is about exploring then Hock, okay, the next video is about Amsterdam, okay, the next videos, the food tour in Denmark, OK, in the next video is about snowing that harm. So it's more sort of the, okay, then they'll be like ours. It's mostly about the local places in the Netherlands, so that's what I want to watch. So that's what I would subscribe. But if someone just comes to my video just to what Snow, then I don't think they would be interested in my other videos. So so then they would not subscribe, or even if they would subscribe, say for example, after the snow video VBE, VBE, you want to make some other videos about the Netherlands. So even if they would subscribe, they're not going to watch. So I hope this whole thing makes sense. So that's why it's really important to stick to a niche so that you can make similar types of videos. And it's also easier for you to not get distracted by all different things going on. Because I'm a videographer, I can make videos about anything. I filled with a lot of businesses and they have completely different, different niche. And those things, they look really attractive to me and I also want to make videos about them. But then I think that I don't know if my audience would be really interested in watching that. So that's why I stick to my niche and just try to make what I want and also what my audience would like to watch. So I hope this whole thing, this whole niche circle is clear to you. And let's move on to the next section. 4. How to know what videos to make: So how do you know what videos to make say, for example, I'll just give my example and I hope that you can relate to that. So at the moment, v1 to make videos about local things in Amsterdam, local things in the Netherlands. So V sit together and we just brainstorm that what all videos we can make, which is within our control. For example, there's log down here. Of course, we cannot take public transport, we cannot go to different cities. It's not necessary. So what all things we can make while we are in Den Haag world, things that you can make in local V, just brainstorm all those ideas and then reaches C That what video we can make now so that it can get more views. So say for example, last week, they didn't have any video ideas. Vv viewers totally blank that what to make, what to make. And then we were just, yeah, watching on YouTube the videos about Netherlands, videos about Amsterdam. And then this video popped up that why there are so many bikes in the Netherlands does, since I moved here, I'm also really curious to know like why there are so many bikes in this country. And we made a video about it. Why this idea we thought that would be good for us, because we also want people to come to our channel who are, who are a bit curious about the Netherlands, or even if they live in any other part of the world. And if they are curious about the Netherlands, we want them to come to our channel. So that's why we made this video. And also, I was also really curious to know why there are so many bikes in the Netherlands. But that's how you just search idea that you just go on YouTube and see that within your niche, within, within the video, which is doable, what type of videos are already there? And if you have any other ideas in your mind, you can just make videos on that. So say for example, the snow video which we are doing now, the Snow, I think it's just going to snow today, which is Sunday and Monday. So the thumbnail and the title is literally snowing in hog or snowfall in Den Haag. And I'm pretty sure that a lot of people would want to watch the acts over the film today. We're gonna film tomorrow. And then by Thursday or Friday, we're going to upload this video. So because we already have a lot of audience from the Netherlands, we already have a lot of audience from around the world who are interested in the Netherlands. They would watch that video because it's quite relevant. It just happened three days ago. So people would be wanting to watch. So yeah, you can also make videos about the current things, what's going on. But yeah, always just make sure that you sit one day, right your niche on the top and just write down what level, what old videos is possible within my control that I can make in this week. And then you can just search on YouTube that did that video got many views and then the videos which has got significant amount of views, which means that it's being searched a lot. So then you can make a similar video. But then yet at the same time, ask yourself this question that I would want to make a video like this. Would, I would enjoy to make a video like this. And the answer is, you have to make it then, you know. So yeah, sit somewhere, right your niche and then just brainstorm all the video ideas and then make the video to which is the easiest to make now. So once you have that momentum and once you've make, once you film edit, upload the video, then you have this momentum going on. And then you can just brainstorm about the, about the other topics. And there will be so many other new topics coming onto, coming down the line. So that's how you'd just goes in a loop. So you have to sit someday and just print star. Yeah, so that's how you find the ideas for videos. 5. Tell your story differently: And once you have the idea, then you just have to sit and write down how you're gonna present that story to your audience. And how would you do that? Just keep in mind that while other things are in your control and world, things is doable and it's more practical and then make the whole story based on that. So for some people, it can be really easy to sit at home and talk about the things or to show that things shooting from your home. But for some people, they would like to go outside and talk about the topic that you want to film outside somewhere. So it all depends on you and how you can present that video. You just have to narrate that story really carefully, but it all depends on what type of niche theory would want to make. And if you found the video online and you want to make something similar to that, then you can just watch the video and then you can see that how can I make the, how can we make a similar video but better than this? And how can I put my flavor in that video that people like me and people like all my, and people can then subscribe to my channel. So I'll give you an example. So with exploring things in the Netherlands, I watched a lot of YouTube videos and then I just saw that the filming thing, that production quality and the cinematic video, the slow motion, the videos which has like crazy gimble movements and really beautiful shots. They are missing from the videos in the Netherlands. But those videos, they have really good story that people who are making the videos, they are very experienced in YouTube. They are really good in front of the camera. They can vlog anywhere and all that sort of stuff. So that's their, that's their quality and they use that to make their videos successful. But how can I make that video successful by showing off my skills? So MySQL says, of course, more sort of videography. So I made similar exploring videos, but I put my own story and then I put my own creativity in that. So if someone is watching our videos, they would say that, ok, I have not watched something like that before because all they have watched was something very different. Vis didn't have a good production value, which didn't have supercool cinematic video. So that's what I, that's what I do. That if this topic is in my head, I bought some inner video, then I'm like, okay, I know that I cannot talk better than that guy. I know I cannot act better than that guy, but one thing I can do better than that guy or girl. How is that high? Can film that video in a really cool way so that audience would like. So that's my flavor that I put in my video. But then your talent can be something completely different. You might be funny. You might be the guy who can act really well. You might be someone who can show something by just sketching the things. So it all depends on, so it all depends on what your talent is and how we can, how you can leverage that to make a similar video on the similar topic and make it something completely different so that when it's online and vet someone watches that video, they'll be like, I have not watched something that that before. 6. Structure your videos: And once you have this basic idea of what topic you want, what's the main thing in the video? How you're going to put the video so that it's more sort of Your, it's more sort of resonates with your character, your personality. So then you have to also decide how long you would want a video for. Is it going to be a super long, like 20-25 minutes video or is it going to be a short form video? Then you have to decide, is it going to be a fast-paced video there, there are a lot of scenes phases like really fast card or it's going to be a really slow paced videos is out video where you might be sitting somewhere talking for 5-6 minutes, then he goes on VR. So yeah, you have to decide. So for us, we decide, of course beforehand. And then the main thing what we decide is how long the video would be, what would be the length of the video and the pacing. So I can just give you an example from my other videos. So we made this video about exploring then hart. So in that video, I didn't want to talk a lot in front of the camera. So how I wanted to structure that video was, is that I would do a voiceover And then I have a really beautiful cinematic videos often her. And then I would do a little bit of vlogging. And then I would move to this other place to explore. And then I would do a bit of vlogging. Then I would go to this other place. And that's how I ended up showing all the beautiful places in the Hague, which was yeah, open during pandemic. And the video turned out to be really good. And just after sunset weave into the city center and it was beautiful. The city center of the Hagen, The Night Live's looks review. For Dutch. They are called O Ebola. And I'm really curious how did you like them? So yeah, so that's what we decided in the beginning that okay, so this is not going to be like a typical vlog video. We would be doing a lot of slow motion, cinematic B-roll. And then I would do voiceover And that. But of course, we also wanted to be a bit more personal. So we would also do a little bit of vlogging, but not too much. There's good, really good. I'm surprised at how good it is and with the length field. So one of the video to be less than ten minutes because if people see a video which is just cinematic B-roll and there's not much talking going on or there's not much blogging going on. They kind of get bored because the pace of the video is kind of similar. So their attention kind of dies down. And there was also nothing really significant going to happen in the end. There was no climax, so that's why there was nothing for them to watch until the end. So that's why I wanted to make that video. I wanted to make it like six minutes, but then it went up to eight or nine minutes, but still pretty good. And I'm and I'm proud of what I'm hit Syria. You also have to plan about the structure of the video that how you're going to film. Very, you're gonna film what all people you would be filming in the video, like our video, it's just me and my girlfriend Mira. So yeah, we are not really filming other people, so it's easier for us to just eliminate that thing that we are not going to feel more friends because it just gets awkward, but it all depends on you. But it's always good to introduce more people in the video who will, who are willing to be in, who are willing to be part of video. So it just becomes more entertaining if that's your niche. 7. Use your unfair advantage: And once you have the length of the video, once you know where the video would be taking place, all those things would be dependent would be depending on your unfair at one page. So my unfair advantage, as I talked before was filming. So I want to show off that more and more because that's the kind of audience what I want to attract to my channel. So yes, my unfair advantages filming because I have this camera gear which I used for my production works. I can use it for making YouTube videos. I can film From drone, I can film from Gimbal, so it can get really cinematic shots. That's my unfair advantage. But I am not sometimes good at vlogging in public or I'm not. Sometimes we just good at I become really moody sometimes when I'm filming. So sometimes when I'm going upside and I want to talk a lot in front of the camera. I just don't feel like. So I just take beautiful shots. I come home, I do voiceover on that shot. And then I like it, people like it. So it's a win-win, so you have to choose your unfair advantage. And then the more videos you would make them more, you would find an easy way to produce those videos. If it unfair advantage for some people, as I discussed before, it can be there. They can be super funny, they can be super talkative. They have really group or funny friends. Like for example, when we watch some YouTube videos, some people they're living in Norway or some people they're living in the middle of a jungle. So for them it's so easy to make beautiful shots of sunset, sunrise, sunset and all that sort of stuff. And we want to make something like that, but that's their unfair advantage to make a beautiful video like that. So yeah, you just have to squeeze your unfair advantage and put that in W. And then, yeah, the more videos you would make, you would also get better at your skill. So yes. So once I have all those things sorted out, what I do is I also write the story. So this might not be applicable for some of you. So say for example, if I'm going to make a travel blog where I'm gonna be throwing myself in unknown. So I'll give an example. So even to Naipaul last year and we filmed a lot of travel videos, we filmed a lot of tracking videos, and we had no idea how to structure our videos, what to do. So yet at that time we just didn't want to pressure our cell to make a predefined video which is more sort of scripted. So we just threw herself in a Nolan and just filmed. That came our way. And then we sort of brainstorm that. Okay, how can we present that? So that's one way of doing it. Now what we do is that I have like a basic idea of what type of video I would want to make. So according to that, I can plan the whole thing. I sort of break down the videos into different, different segments. So the first segment is the intro segment. So what I do is I would do like 23 dialogues in the front. And then I would say that's like say five seconds. And then for the next 1520 seconds, I'm going to show what are the highlights of the video. So all the beautiful clips from the whole video, I'll put that in. So that's sort of attracting the audience who are wanting to see a cinematic video. And then I start with the normal video. What? We are IID and mirror. So four months ago, I moved to the Netherlands. And since then, we have been exploring places around. And in this video, we captured the first real snowfall of this year. And of course we had a lot of hot chocolate. All the videos. I also want to have a conclusion so that audience kind of know that, OK, the videos about to end. So I also sort of put a lot of time and effort in making the conclusion of the video so that when they are done watching the video, they have this good feeling that this video was so good and this would this was worth their time. And after five hours and walking, we managed to find our way home. And he was just another reminder for us to let us know what really makes us feel alive. In my opinion, it's really smart to just plan out the video and just break the video into different pots so that you have, you know, what the intro is, you know what the midsection is. You can also divide the mid sections and then you know what the conclusion is. And according to that, I go out and film someday if I don't have a lot of time, I can just feel the intro. Ok, I'm done with the intro. Then if I have some other time slot left, I can just go out. And even if I have a sequence which I can film at home, if it's raining outside, I can just fill in that sequence at my home. Or if i or if I just have a talking shot, I can fill that whenever I think that I would be free at home and it's going to be quiet. My neighbors will be quiet. It's really good to just break down the video in two different parts. So you can also just have an overlook that OK, I've done this, I've done this part. This is pots are left to this, this part. I will be filming in that, in those days. 8. Writing dialogues beforehand: And it might sound really stupid, but sometimes I also write the dialogue for the video. So with the bike video, I just sat down one day and I really wrote down that what all things I will be talking in the video. It might sound a bit too much for you guys, but why I do that is that I know myself. So what happens is that sometimes, sometimes when I'm really creative, I had that whole story in my head, so I just write it down. And sometimes when I go and film and completely blank. So then I just take out my phone and I'm just going to read, okay, this was what I thought that that's what what I am going to say. So I just Yeah, tell that because I've read the story again and I just have to explain that to my audience. But I don't really see the exact lines what I had written. It just gives me a brief idea of ok, so this is what I was gonna talk because it has happened with me in the past that I had a really good idea about talking something about certain video. And then I went out to film and I was completely blank and I came home and without filming anything. So after that, I just made this a habit that if I have an idea I can ride whatever things come in my mind, right? All the dialogues, what I have to say, what Mira might say, My girlfriend might say, and yeah, just go from there. So if it sounds too much for you, you can just write down the bullet points at What are you gonna save. So same for this future. Plus I have made a few bullet points, so yeah. So you can check in my phone. I don't know if you can't see, but yeah, there are a few bullet points for this class because I felt a lot of skill share classes. So I know exactly what to talk about. So I have just written down the bullet points and then I just read those bullet points. And then I talk about that whole subject to you guys. So yeah, this, yeah, the more videos you would make you really find an easy way. Just make this whole system work. So yeah, that's how I do it. So for YouTube videos, I write the old dialogues. Say for example, the byte video, what I wanted to film. I had written the whole Dido. So when I went to film, it was like in a foreign land, far away from the city item to film. And I was flying my drawn-out swelling and something for from my camera. And while doing all the stuff, I completely forgot about one of the things I have to talk. So then I had to go to my phone and literally read out that. Okay, so this is what I was actually thinking of talking. Okay, let's talk about that thing now. So that's why it just helps. 9. Plan your filming schedule: And with these videos, you have to really give time to film. So you cannot really film while rushing for the whole thing. So V, For us, the plan to make one video a week. So right now for example, I just uploaded my bike video. So I know that maybe this Thursday or this Friday I'm going to be uploading the snow video and it's it has snowed today and it's going to be snowing tomorrow. So I know that. Okay. These two days I had to film and the next three days I can just take my time, relax, do other stuff. And when I have time, they said those 23 hours to edit the video. So that's why if you want to have a regular upload schedule on YouTube, you have to plan your filming days according to that. So say for example, bike videos. I knew that by videos we uploaded on the Sunday. So I knew that on Thursday it's gonna be nice and sunny. The videos can come cooled, the drone shots can come cool. So I already allotted thirsty, I think ten to two o'clock just to film this video. And on Friday afternoon as well, I wanted to film this video as well. But then what happened was Friday I went out to film. It didn't work out. I don't know. I was just to Moody. I just didn't feel like talking to the camera. So then we went out on Saturday again to flow. So what I learned from that was that always keep one day extra. So do not keep everything to film in last day when you have to upload the video on Sunday. So if I had if we had to upload the video on Saturday, and then if I went out on Friday and didn't feel like filming, the video would have never been uploaded. So that's why it's really good to just keep one day spare in the end so that if you are missing some clips, you can just film that otherwise plan really efficiently that world time slots is good for you to film, and it also depends on your energy. So sometimes I wouldn't want to fill in anything in the night cause I go to bed super early. So I would want to film everything in the morning. So for example, this morning it was snowing too. I don't want to go out now in the snow. So that's why we went out in the morning after breakfast with the snow, but we had a really good time. They spend three to four hours outside this filming and just having fun. So you also should know what time is good for you to fill more time. You think that your energies up and yeah, so that's how you can plan the whole filming schedule. And of course, there is an exception. For example, if you're filming a troubled login, literally have no idea how they're what your travels would be like if you get stuck in some situation or you just literally have no idea in some cases. So in that case is what I would say is that even if you don't feel like filming, just keep filming because if you're going to come home, you're going to thank yourself that oh my God, I'm so glad that I filmed that thing because it has happened with me so many times that sometimes I was troubling something went wrong and I didn't film. And when I went when I came home and home I got, I should have done more there. It happened between South America. So I was doing this Patagonia track and then I fell off in this puddle of mud. And after that I was feeling so bad and I just wanted to go home. So I didn't feel anything after that. But when I was editing the video, I was I was regretting so moist that shed. I should have filmed something after that just to just to show how I felt at that time. Because when I was making the video after coming from there, there was no clips for me to explain to the audience that how exactly I felt. Very exactly I felt in the mud. And like just show the people that how that place was, how bad that place was, how bad the weather was. But I was just not I just didn't feel like filming there. So that's why a regretted. So all this makes sure that if you have no idea what to film, this, film everything, just keep your camera on. Even if you don't have to talk to the camera, just keep your camera on and film whatever is going on. And when you're coming home, you like more footage, is all of it so much better than less food it. So when you come home, you would be so glad that you have so many, at least you have to have, at least you have so many options to choose from to tell the best story possible. So yeah, all of us make sure if you have no idea what to film, film everything. 10. Thumbnail and titles: This is the mistake. A lot of amateurs they do. And since the time we have changed this thing, the whole story change. So thumbnails, some nails and the titles, they are the most important part of a YouTube video and literally a good thumbnail and a good title that consists of 70 or 80% chances for your video to make it good. So always make sure if you're going somewhere or if you want to film a video as soon as you have the topic, you have to brainstorm a lot about. Okay, what thumbnails can I put? And same thing if you have no idea, watch what other YouTubers are doing. And then if you want, you can just copy that. But yeah, always makes sure that keep what thumbnail you want that as as a priority. And every time if you're going out to film or if even if field near to home, you you just make the thumbnail tick that thumbnail, that okay, thumbnail is done. Now I can film. So with the snow video, we already filmed the thumbnail today. And like I was I really want to go home because I was hungry and then mirror was like now we have to get the thumbnail and then we were like, okay, so now we have a really cool thumbnail for the video. And yeah, so that's with everything. The thumbnail is like literally the first impression. And you just have to do it and also are really good title. So that if he does think of you as a viewer and just ask yourself that if I had that thumbnail and if I have that title, would I click on that video are known. So yeah, that's what we ask ourselves and we tried to make the best possible thumbnails and best possible tidal. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but that's how you learn. 11. What we learned so far: Alright guys, in this section we're doing a quick summary of what all things I've talked so far because I just thought that it might be so much information in your head. That's why there's a little summary. So we would start from the beginning, just do a quick revision and then we would move on. So the first thing force, so that this whole process we started with knowing your niche. So of course you need to figure out your niche first. And then once you figure out your niche, then you should know what videos you can make within that niche. And those video ideas can come from your own ideas, of course. Or you can just check on YouTube that there are, what are the videos which I doing good in YouTube within your niche? And the next one, what we do is once you decide what, what video you are going to make, how you have to figure out that, how can you make that video your way? Because if you just copy cat, someone else like exactly the same video, you video might not do good because there's already someone who has already made a video ten times better than that. So why wouldn't audience, audience wash that rather than watching your so, yeah, that's why it's really important to put your own thing in the video. And once you know that high, you're gonna put your own thing, then you have to structure the video. So with the structure of the video, you just have to figure out the pacing of the video, the length of the video, where you're gonna film, how are you going to film and all that sort of stuff. And all those things, of course, would depend on your unfair advantage. What all things, what are your skills which you want to push in the video to tell a really cool story. And it also depends on the things which is possible at the moment. And once I figured out all that, then I have them in my personal opinion. I write the dialogues for the video. Or sometimes I just write the bullet points what I did for the sculpture class. And once I have the dialogues and everything ready, then I planned the filming schedule. What all days I would be filming. What time are Allie would be filming? It depends on of course, what I am free and it also depends on the weather if you're filming outdoors. And the next thing we decide is plan the title and the thumbnail of the video. So before going out you sold we have the title and the thumbnail in your mind so that when you're going out, you don't forget to take the photo for the thumbnails. So those are all the things what we have discussed until now. In the next section we will be talking about filming process, some tips and tricks on editing, and then some few general tips about uploading the video on YouTube. Thanks for watching this one. Let's move on to the filming section. 12. Tips for filming: So that was the whole pre-planning process. So now it's time for you to do the actual filming. So what my recommendation would be is that do not overthink or do not be too stressed. Just go out, enjoy the filming process, and try to film as much as you can. And then when you come home, you would be so glad. So yeah, the only tip what I would give you four filming is that you already have all the notes, right? So just go out, enjoy film. Like there might be times where whatever things you have planned, the things are going completely opposite of that and that's okay. But try to do whatever is in your control to make the video as the, as best as possible. It has happened with us so many times in the past that I planned so much about the video. You've rented a place, it was crowded, it was raining or something happened and he couldn't film. But then we had another story that given that day to explore that plays and he was thunderstorm, so that was another story to tell. So yeah, I just go and film and have fun. Go as a storyteller, that how we can tell that story to your friends, to your family, and in the best possible way. So even if things don't go to you, the plan is go with the flow. Because if you start getting pissed off about the whole situation, that order is not according to me. This is not according to me. You wouldn't feel like filming. And whether it can be really tricky here, especially as the winter approaches, it rains almost every day. And I was really surprised to see how people have adopted with the rain and have just accepted it, and they just carry on with their own life even if it rains. And I think I have to do the same. And yeah, always make sure that when you are going to form the reason why I tend not to stress too much because you have to keep your energy high. Because if you don't keep your energy high, nobody wants to see a boring person in front of the camera because everybody thinks that their life is broke, their life is boring. And that's why people want to go on YouTube and watch other people because they think that the people who, the people whom they are watching their life is so much interesting than ours. So yeah, always make sure to keep your energy. Hi, but of course you don't have to care too much that jump in front of the camera or like what's up guys on screen in front of the camera is do what you feel like is natural. But he always makes sure that you're smiling, keeping your energy high, and just enjoy filming. Enjoy just being in front of the camera and just keeping in mind that you're just telling your friends are telling you or family members that story. And of course, if you go blank and if you still want to film, you have the notes so you can go check the notes on the rubric, okay? Okay. I actually had to do that. I completely forgot. Ok, let's do it. So yeah, that's why it's really handy to keep the notes with you on your phone. And same with the shots. I made a whole class of how to get cinematic B-roll. But yeah, always make sure that when you, while you are doing the whole planning of the video and if you have a certain type of shot which you want to put in the video, right, that shot down in your document. So that when you are actually filming that written scribble that written, that written shot would help you so much. So then it would also give you ideas that okay, I took this shot, but okay, or maybe if I take that shot, this it might look much more cinematic or it might look more cool. So yeah, always make sure that if you have certain shots in your mind, which can be the master shot, just write down in your notes so that when you're actually filming you have a certain idea that okay, I have this little shortlist. I can take those shots and then I can just fill in whatever is going on around me so that that would give you a starting point to start filming. And I said that yes, there might be a time where you don't feel like filming, but what helps me the most is that I treat it as my job, even though I am not making significant amount of money from YouTube. But I treat it as my job. So I say even if I don't feel like filming or if I don't, if I'm a bit lazy to get that particular shot, I'm like not that's that's my job and that's what I want people to know me for, so I have to do it. Also then you don't have any other option to be to slack off or to be lazy. So tweeted at your job and you would do a really good job. And of course, when you're filming, if things don't go as planned, just makes sure that yeah, you're just filming everything because it happened when I was filming my sister's wedding. So with Indian wedding, it goes for three complete days. And I was filming those whole tweet is not continuously but the whole time. And I was also vlogging. So in the last During the last wedding day, I was just so exhausted that I just didn't feel like vlogging ion, meaning I was I was kind of completely blank because I didn't have any notes or any Scribble to look up to, but I still try to get all the roles of whatever was going on. So even if I even though I didn't talk anything in front of the camera, at least I had those shots. So when I was making the actual wedding video, What I did was I showed all the shots. I put really good colour grade, I put really good music. And then the places where I felt that this thing needs explanation, which I should have talked in the video, but then I was not feeling good, so I didn't talk. So I do a bit of voice-over. Once all the close relatives and guess are done taking photos with the bride and groom. The main press starts and it goes for the whole night. So yeah, that's why I highly, highly, highly recommend. Take as many barriers as possible. 13. Tips for editing: So now we are home with all the footage we have. So first thing what I do is that I start watching all the footage. Yeah. Literally, like even if you remember all the footage, watch you filmed before importing it into the software, start watching all the footage and not delete anything yet. And so at least you have this basic idea that portal information you have to make a really cool story. And then what I do is that to make my life easier, I sort of break down all those shots into different different folders. So I would divide that based on time of the day. So say for example, morning I'd filmed a lot. So morning I can put all the shots in one folder that evening I did some other sequence, so I will put them into a different folder. Same thing depending on the location, same thing dependent on the days. So say for the wedding video In the invading, they have so many different rituals going on. So I was filming all those different rituals. So when I came home as I was watching the whole footage, I sort of distributed all those different rituals into different folders, so it was completely clear for me. Okay, I have this much footage from that thing. I have this much footage from that thing. So yeah, it just helps you a lot just to see that. Okay. Bottled things you have and it just makes life easier because if you have like a 1000 clipping, one whole folder is just going to be so hard to navigate. So yeah, it's also easier just to put them in different, different folders. So that's the first thing what I do. And then I sort of import them in the software. And then if I have this basic idea of how I wanted to make the video, then of course I'm going to edit according to that. But if I don't have any idea, what I do is that I sort of edit certain sequences separately, depending on the type of folders. The morning sequence I would edit in one go and then say, for example, evening sequence I would edit in one goal. And then what I will do is that I would just find this story that how can I, how can I go from morning to evening or how can I go from day one to day two? Sometimes I just write end of day one or starting of data, and sometimes I just do a voiceover that after that night, next morning we went here. So people know that, oh, it's next morning. But those kind of things you can only use while you are doing like are exploring video while you're doing of lager. If it's like more sort of a visual based video. Yeah. That's why it also helps me to pre-plan the whole thing because then I would exactly know how to edit. And once you're done watching the videos, then you know that what type of video is going to, what type of footage you have? How's the energy of the footage, how's the pacing of the footage? And then according to that, you can choose the music. So music is the most important part of the video. Full stop. So you're always make sure that you're not rushed into the first music you found on the internet. So for us, we get our music from music bed. So if you want, yeah, free music from them. For one, Monty can check in the link below. But yeah, there are so many other websites as well where you can get non copyrighted music with membership, with a yearly or monthly membership, I spent a lot of time searching for music. Sometimes what happens is that when I'm actually filming the video, I already have like a particular music going on in your head. So I know that I'm going to put similar music in that sequence, but sometimes I don't. So that's why when I come home, I have when I'm watching the video, then it comes in my head that OK, maybe I can put this kind of music to make it look good. And sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. So what it had happened between so many times as well that I had a music I had a music clip and then I made the whole video on that clip. And then it's just not feeling right. So then I had to choose another music can then edit all the videos according to that clip, you didn't have to be lazy val choosing music and choose the best music, what is suitable for that sequence? And if you're, if you're a bit confused, whatever sequence you have made a choice to, your friends, showed your partner should your parents, and they can give an honest opinion on how the video is. What do you think about the music? Don't ask him about the music. Just show them the whole sequence and then you'll be like, what do you think is missing? Do you think that this whole thing suits the whole vibe which I want to show? And then this listen to their feedback and then also asking the end that do you think the music of the problem? Because sometimes other people are really sensitive to the video that you showed them. Because what happens is that if I'm spending one day in choosing a music in my head, I think that music is the best. But for other people, the people who are your potential viewer. For them, they don't know your spend so much time. They thought that you just chose the music randomly. So they might say, Oh, I don't think this music is good for this whole thing. And sometimes they might be right, so you have to go back again and choose another music. So that's why you're always made sure that music is the most like others. Make sure that you are spending more time on music, searching for music and not rushing to choosing one. How do I edit, as I told you before, is that I planned this intro short over. I showed a really cool video sequence from all the clips. Why have I do that? Because I want the audience to know that, hey, this is a good quality video production video. So it's not, it's worth your time. And if you don't like this sort of videos, that's fine. You don't have to watch it. But if you like this sort of videos, these are the things which are coming up to you better watch out. So that's why I put a little sequence in the beginning, little intro sequence. And you can do that too. So it works for me, but up to you if you want to do that or not. But yeah, I have seen also seen a lot of other people doing that and it works for them as well. So while editing, when you're editing the video, make sure that you're taking breaks. Because sometimes what happens is that if I'm editing for 3-4 hours and my brain just become so drained out, then I lose this capacity of thinking creatively as how I was thinking for hours before. So always make sure that you're taking breaks. What happens with me sometimes is that if I'm editing a YouTube video, I think that by the end it's going really good because my brain makes me lazy and it's just convinces me that, yeah, whatever you're doing, it's really good. That video looks really great. And then I see that video next morning And then I'm like, oh my god, this is terrible. Like I have to change this, I have to change that. The volume is a bit up there. The color grading is really bad there. So you're always make sure that you're taking breaks while editing. Do not edit the entire video in one day. Or if you edit the entire video in one day, make sure that next day you go back and just watch the video, or maybe ask someone else to watch the video and you have this third person perception, they would give you more hint that this can be improved. This can be improved. So always listen to other people while editing as well. I know that it can be a bit of egoistic as well, that no, you don't know anything about editing. You have no right to tell me. But that's not true because other people are your audience. You know, nobody, nobody really cares how much time you have spent editing, how many given how much time you spend filming. So yeah, you're making this video for others if you want to make, if you want to do good on YouTube. So you have to listen to others, but you are always remember to take those Editing breaks and sometimes just go out for a walk like I had sometimes that if I had to fill, if I have to edit the oil hole sequence whole video in the entire day, I'll just film. I just added the first half and then after lunch I'll go for a walk for a couple of hours. Then I'll come back again and it just gives you more ideas. Innovate editing that, oh, maybe I should do that, maybe I should do that. Maybe this thing is not looking right, maybe that thing. So yeah, editing breaks are really important. And if somethings are missing, do not be lazy, go out and shoot. So yes, I as I told you before, treated as a job because if you're making these videos, is you are asking other people to give ten minutes, five minutes of their time to watch this, right? So you want to make the best possible video. So if you think that certain clips are missing or certain things are missing, or certain text is missing, certain video animations I'm missing this. Do it, always take that extra step to make this video as good as possible. Kill the darlings. So I, I, I, I knew this from a film editor. So he says that I, I really can't remember the name, but he says that it doesn't matter how long it took you to get that particular shot. It doesn't matter how many days you waited for that particular shot. Nobody cares about it if it doesn't fit the video. So there has been so many times where I had this really beautiful drone shorter. I had this really beautiful gimble saw sharp. And I really wanted to put that in the video, but it was jots, but he was just not fitting the story. So I did. Or there was this really beautiful whole sequence which was which I film for a particular video, but it was just not fitting the scene. So I had to get rid of death because if I would have put there, did might, would have made the video a bit more boring or it fight. It might would have made the video bit more longer. So you're always make sure that you're cutting the crap. So keep your video short, simple and watch it from a third persons point of view. So if you think that this might be the point where the other people think that this is boring. You can just cut it out or as other people, but yeah, it doesn't matter how long it takes to edit that video, to film that video. If it's not supporting the story, you have to cut it out because then he would feel more bad that, oh my god, I'd have worked so hard on this video. I got so much shorter and this video is not doing good. Yeah, it's good to cut that out and you can you can this that's short for some other video, So yeah, at least you have that chart, right. So you can use it for some other video. But yeah, always remember to Cut the crap and keep it short, simple, straightforward, and venue or color grading, always make sure that your color grading is consistent throughout the whole video. Or if you are going for a certain look and make sure that you're consistent in that locate. It shouldn't change with every clip or the whole thing would look super unprofessional. And as I said before, with the final edit, give some time what it next day and if you have to make any changes, don't be lazy. Do that change, make the best video possible? And that's it. End of editing. 14. Editing the thumbnails: And edit the thumbnail. So for us, we live in this ideology that less is more. So with our thumbnails feed don't put like crazy text either. We just put a simple image which is as beautiful as possible, which describes the whole video. Or if we feel that there is a necessity of a text, we do some texts on the video. Maria v, kind of goal. Yeah. We don't go all in with the thumbnails. Yeah. We tried to keep it a bit more calm, a bit more peaceful. So just not look like a clickbait thumbnail, it looks more professional, more elegant. So that's our taste. But it all depends on you, but also spent a lot of time with thumbnails and always make sure that you are also seeing that thumbnail according to the thumbnail size. Because sometimes if you are filming a landscape video and if you go on to YouTube, if you reduce that to YouTube thumbnail size, sometimes you don't see anything. So always make sure that you reducing the thumbnail size and put it next to other YouTube thumbnails, just crop it and next to other YouTube thumbnail and just see that how it looks. And then crop your thumbnails according to that. And does ask yourself that do you think that this thumbnail would stand out or not? Yeah. And yeah, you can get more creative ideas from other similar YouTube videos as well. 15. Analysing my Youtube video: So welcome to this new section. So if you want, you can also skip this section. But in this section what we're going to do is that you're going to have a look at one of my YouTube videos, the snow video. I will just explain you why I've done some of the things. What sort of techniques I've used in the video to make it look more, more engaging, more interesting. So, yeah, and also the reason why I thought that it might be a good idea for me to show you guys, is that because all the things I'm already talking about in the previous sections, does it more sort of a practical thing of everything, what I've talked before. So yeah, let's start the video and see what happens. What. So that was the little funny section for the audience. Because of course, if there's a little bit of humor and the video is of good quality, that obviously attracts a lot of people. So that's what I thought to put in the beginning. So and it also would show the audience that we have put a bit of effort. It's also like a well planned video. It's not just a random snow vlog. So that's why that's the reason I put that sequence in the beginning. And let's move on to the main intersection. B are IID and mirror. So four months ago I moved to the Netherlands. And since then, we have been exploring places around. And in this video, we captured the first real snowfall of this year. And of course, we had a lot of hot chocolate. So the main reason to show in this intro to the audiences that because I've seen a lot of YouTube videos where I it's my personal experience and my personal opinion that I would see the thumbnail and the thumbnail would look ultimate. Quality of the thumbnail would look so good. And as soon as I'm watching the video, it's just not justifying the thumbnail, what people have put the mean videos quality would be really, really bad. So that's why I have put this intro just to show people that, look, it's not a clickbait video. And we're actually going to the snow and look at the quality of the video. It looks cool, the color grading and everything. And also one more reason to put this intro is that because we had a lot of comments before and a lot of messages that, hey, hey, ARE real up the video, but the intro part is missing in the video. We don't really know who you are, who you guys are, because there are a lot of people who are just joining in the middle who haven't been watching us since the beginning. So they have no idea, like what am I doing in the Netherlands? Who's the girl and like, what's this channel about? And blah, blah. So that's why I put this intro that since four months ago we have motor The Netherlands and we have been exploring places around, so it gives a clear indication to people there. Okay, so these people are in the Netherlands. And they are making videos about exploring places in the Netherlands. So and it's also a good way to just introduce yourself to our audience so that they're not left behind and they kind of know the whole story. So let's move on to the first section. So since the beginning of this year, winter has not been really pretty. There has been mostly overcast days and it has been raining quite a bit. But then one day we see this in the nucleus experienced for Shephelah and Bob, ambush begins or plaque of wartime tens of centimeters. Snails don't off omega temperature Europe, foreign, tight knit, Mere Bovary, no ads. And then the next day we woke up to what I didn't really expect, Yes. Snow everywhere. And the next thing you know is we're outside in the deserted streets of The Hague. In that section, I also wanted to give a introduction to why we're making this video and the all the new section. So things were building up until the new section that okay. Since it has been sheared, it has been raining since I've come here. But then one day we see this in the news didn't audience would be like, Oh what do you, what do you see? And then we're sort of showing the news clip just to build up, just to hype the video a bit more, that what are the, what are they going to watch? And then just a normal video starts. That snow is, am I study here? I just I just want to say to snow, it's not that common in the Netherlands, like the less time we have this, I I can't even remember. A few weeks ago we had a little bit of snow but normative Nolan and next day it's gone. But this will stay for, I think, a week or so. Have you guys watched that movie cause day after tomorrow? That's what we feel like because if we don't we haven't seen anybody on the street. There's are three like three or four people. And we also found someone whose car got stuck. So if we go on up, we have to explore more. So guys, we finally found a place where they're open for hot chocolate that's right behind us. And so we haven't gets much corrupted. And so nice like a churches are the best in this kind of letter. Currently autoclave guys, we're at the city centre and we can see a lot of people playing with knowing the background, what are you doing it don't do it. I know it does get cold. Somebody's going to complain that he wants to go home. No. Bottom brand. Yeah. It's twofold. O di reducing anyway, we he made it to the city center or the Hague. And we are at the government buildings. And we've been here many times, but I've never seen them is snow and it's really pretty and there's like a little lake next to us and really curious if there's isolates. Yeah, there's a little snowstorm here. So I think we're going call. And he liked him, dropped like almost five or six degrees and more on the internet. It's still show that it's minus seven. But yeah, everything looks just so pretty. Look I this the government building. And you'll think getting home. Oh, just a little blog, but you still have to do it at five for gays cookie gets a loan. What places our walk. Realize how far you've walked. And now we have to book back. In the first main part of the video. Our goal was to mainly show the audience how it looks like in real life. There is no like slow motion and there's no credit is no crazy editing going on. You would just know more clips of how everything looks like it during that snowstorm. And meanwhile, we're also going between B-roll shots and talking some things so that the audience knows that the story is going somewhere. So that was the main aim for the first part, just to show the real snow and what they would experience if they were here. And the Abbey also had to introduce a bit of hot chocolate because everybody likes food, everybody likes people eating or drinking stuff in the video. And chocolate milk if it's like a big thing in the Netherlands, and everybody they drink it when it's called. So we also wanted to try it out so that people can also relate to that. So that was the whole idea about the first part. And here also just playing in the snow. So it was like a funny little moments. It is freezing cold outside. And you have to count how many clothes I'm wearing. So that was one tool there. So this is Fran and also I don't have snow shoes because I didn't really expect to see this weather super soon. So I hadn't really cool hack for you guys. So that is what I did laws. I am actually wearing a plastic bag because I didn't want to buy soaps to get through it. And it did a really good job. If you see my sauce, they are super dry. So what do you guys think of that hack MIT, only stupid person who is doing that. And also guys, the snow is not just for today, it's also going to be tomorrow. Tomorrow we have a bigger renter plan because we are going to the mind out Park and we'll do this hike, which is from mine dao to The Hague. So we hope that we survived. So the thing was that I didn't film anything between the D1 and D2 because I had no idea how to jump from day one to day two. So that's why I put this little section. It's also just add submit more. There's a bit of humor in this section. I'm also pushing the audience to comment something down below. Because I also believe that sometimes it's also good to talk to the audience like this face to face rather than vlogging outside or doing the voiceover so that they know that, yeah, we are still in sync, we're still together. And then what I'm doing is I'm hyping up the tomorrow sequence. So if they are wanting to close the video, they wouldn't didn't, then they would like, oh, what is it easy. Oh, he's talking about tomorrow, so something's gonna happen tomorrow. Okay, let's watch. The main goal for this section was just to flex my creativity. Because a lot of people, they like it, they liked this story, but they also like how these things have been shot because for local people here they have experienced there's snow but then they're like, oh, I had no idea that you can also make that's no look this good. So it states through ways of whether in the Netherlands and we decided to go of an hike. And I think Edie does luxury high group last for 34 hours or so. Anymore? Arrowhead, it's freezing and a wind feels like I think they said on the news like minus 13. And yeah, we reuse some proper clothes, but we don't really have good clothes for winter, just like normal genes. But we'll manage. I'm so happy. Found this place in the middle of our High Court itself or triplets. Let's lock on just what radiated re still have to go like eight case I think. So. Yeah, it's good to get some energy. Faced goals again. You would observe this in the video that every time we are vlogging and even though we are talking, I am putting a lot of clips about what are the things we are talking. Because it happens with us as well that if someone is talking something in the video, I would want to see that while that person is talking, so he just creates a really solid memory in my head at really solid impression about that thing. So that's what we aim for and it also keeps the momentum going. Because once you talk about something. And then in next section, use show that it just, it just takes a lot of time on it. In my opinion, it's a little bit boring. So that's what we aim for. That is that the video is moving really fast and we're talking, showing stuff, then come back to us talking than showing stuff. So yeah. And while doing tricks like this, we often ask ourselves why we are doing this. You don't need to be in this cold. You don't need to walk for ten to 15 kilometers. Mila feats are frozen. So we are here in the middle of Mayan dao and the Earth's no-one around us because I think no one is a great graces to go for a hike in the sweater and the snow is getting worse. And we still have some hours, I guess, left until we reach home. So I hope every hope your home before dark. But then the alternative would to sitting at home and missing out on this snowfall. Vsb might not even experience for another year is scary. And everybody was telling us that the snow like this, it has not happened in the Netherlands for a while. And you're pretty lucky him. That's why he wanted to just make the most out of it. And the hot chocolate really helped. I don't know if it was the coal or the weather, but that was one of the best chocolate, white chocolate I've had since I've come here. It was really good. What's it called? Maybe you guys should try it out. If you come here. What did I get money now is I can improve my nails like nature work and, and in the middle there, we have put the name will put the name here. So yeah, if you guys are around, make sure to check out their heart chocolate and tried to retrofit cream, of course. And we had that with stroke waffle. So, you know, it's so delicious. The thing with nature is it shows, it's extraordinarily beautiful, decides once in a while. And we don't want to let them go without experiencing it to the fullest. In the Warsaw where I'm talking, I'm talking about the overall experience when the sequence jumps into us, vlogging VR, talking more about the current things, what was going on at that time. So I hope this whole thing makes sense. So that's what last section was. There was a lot of talking in VoiceOver and in front of the camera. So that just kept the video going, kept it more interesting. And there's a point as well, because we also wanted to plug our Instagram because we never do that. So then you're like, yeah, do this is a good time to plug our Instagram, so we did that. So we are walking now for almost three hours. So we are really Coles and we still have really a long time ago and it's getting dark and he has almost six. So we really have to hurry up, but I'm not sure where we are. So hopefully you finish this last leg of this walk. Sued. And we also took some photos back there. See if you guys follow us on instagram, you would see some beautiful photo. So yeah, if you are not falling gas, plus follow us at, let's meet abroad and post stories that maybe post photos from our adventures. I'm sure you guys would like it if you guys like our videos, they really would like to know who you guys are. So yeah, if you follow us on Instagram, we can follow you back and then we also get to know you a bit more because I'm really curious who is watching our videos. In after five hours of walking, we managed to find our way home. And he was just another reminder for us to let us know what really makes us feel alive. And then I was doing the voiceover and then slowly they know that the video is about to end because I'm also showing the changes in lighting. So in the beginning it was a bit brighter, but then you see that the lights are becoming a bit dark. Then I'm showing the street light and mirror eyes working under dad. And there's then there's more VoiceOver. And then in the end, I also wanted to put this clip because I just thought that it's not going to be cool if I just Ending video at the voiceover, our guy, so just finished editing the video and I totally forgot to say anything in the end. So yeah, I want to say to you guys now that thank you so much everybody for watching. And we really hope that you liked our video and you'd like all the snow stuff. And guess what? The snow is still here and it's sunny today, but there was no snowfall after that. And yeah, I've enjoyed a lot and we hope we hope that you guys enjoy it as well. And once again, thank you so much for watching. Thanks for your time. And if you haven't subscribed, subscribe to the channel and give a link to this video. It just helps with the YouTube algorithm. Thank you so much. And then I'm also pushing them to like the video. So yeah, that was it for this video, guys. And I hope you liked this sequence and got something from it. So let's move on to the next section. 16. Uploading and conclusion: So now it's the upload time. So make sure that you're writing a good description. It's always make sure that whatever things you are talking in the video, you have to write down that in the YouTube description. So that's how you have to, like YouTube is a software, it's not a human, you know? So you have to make you two very clear that this video is about this thing. For example, made a, I made a video about review of my Sony camera. So first thing what I did was I said a lot of times in the video, in the YouTube video about like the name of this camera and the settings and loved law. And in the description, I am all almost typing the exact same thing. So YouTube is really, they also can recognize your voice, the software. So YouTube is really clear that okay, in the video he's talking about this thing. And also in the thumb, also in the title is he has written about this camera model and in the description also, he has written about the same exact same thing. What is what he is talking in the video? That's why it's really clear for YouTube that this thing, this video is about this camera. And he's giving a review about this camera. And always make sure that you also, you are putting the similar tags. So you can download this software called Tube Buddy. That two-body helps you to see that tags what other people have used in the similar video. So that can help you to give the tax idea. So you knew the similar tags or you can also use the tags, whatever you have talked in the video. So yeah, there, there can be like endless ideas and for a two-body, if you get the full version, they also had this option where you put one tag and it gives you a relevant YouTube tags. So a tags, the AIA basically works as hashtag, what he used for Instagram and other social media platform. And this is also a really important thing. So what we do after uploading the video is that we also make a shot, say, 15 to 32nd video from the whole YouTube video. And what do we do that we upload that intro video on our Instagram or not Facebook. I applaud that on my personal Facebook so that people can see that 15 or 20 seconds intro video, the highlight video where I talked about in the beginning. And then they can come to my channel to watch that video. Or this makes sure that you are making your also editing out the 20 seconds or 15 seconds, even 15 seconds, short video out of the main YouTube videos so that you can promote your latest video and all the other social media platform. And yeah, get more views. And now it's time to upload the video. So once you uploading, make sure you're sharing everywhere. You can either share the YouTube link or you can share the little video, what you made, the intro video plus the link of the video. So yeah, always make sure to share it with your friends, share on your Facebook, share everywhere. Sometimes people become really shy to share their work. But if you really want people to know that you are huge lever, you have to share, you know, and you might think that people are never going to make fun of you, bla, bla. But people who have to make fun of him, they would make fun of you anyways, that you shouldn't let that affect you and let that stop you from what you want to be. Turning into a motivational video class. Because what happens is that if your video does really good in first 23 days, then YouTube thinks that, okay, this is a really good video. This video is actually doing good. So you'd have, doesn't have any sentiments because it's a software, right? So the only feedback, what YouTube can get us through views, through comments through like, yeah, if it's doing really good in first 23 days, then YouTube would promote it to other people as well. Youtube would browse it to own other people's wall as well. So yeah, always make sure to share it everywhere as soon as you upload so that the, so that the more audience you get in first two days, two or three days, that would just tell you that, hey, it's a good video, it's doing really good as engaging. And also what you can do is that whoever comments on the video, you have to comment back straight away. All this, make sure that you're commenting straightaway. So then also YouTube knows that, okay, it's engaging as well. And in your YouTube videos, if you get a challenge, you're telling people to like and comment in the video, because you might have heard a lot of YouTubers they do it. And you might have heard a lot of YouTubers. They ask questions in the video that what do you guys think, comment down below what you guys think comin down this common down that I mean, most of the time the only reason why they tell to comment down below is that if you comment down on their videos, then YouTube thinks that it's actually an engaging video. So yeah, I have to promote it more. So that's what YouTube thinks. So that's why if you get a chance in your video, if you think that it's appropriate, you can tell people that. What do you guys think about this comment down below, we have started doing this for last 2-3 videos and it's doing pretty well like we have a lot of likes as compared to before.
