After reading plenty of “How to…” articles over the last few days, I realise that I need to get myself on as many social media platforms as a possible can.
BUT I have read plenty of articles that suggest that having a YouTube channel can really help boost your potential to create a fan base that will hopefully buy your books.
So I have followed that advice and set up my Lee OSullivan Writer YouTube channel. I’m now in need of ideas of how to actually fill it with video content. I don’t think that there is a huge gap in the market for videos of just writers typing away at a keyboard. So a little ‘thinking outside the box’ is needed if I’m going to get a YouTube channel off the ground.
So far I have 3 concrete ideas in my head that I can quickly and easily film on a phone, edit and publish on YouTube in the coming weeks. After that, I hope to have more ideas on how to generate enough content to keep any subscribers up to date.
Admittedly, I’m not blessed with the ability to be able to sit in front of a camera and waffle on like some YouTube presenters are, so my videos will be short and to the point. I’ll have my first YouTube video online in a week or two.
