How to Stand Out in a Crowded YouTube Space
Sidney realized early on that to stand out on YouTube you have to be you, because there's only one of him; there's only one of you; and there's only one of everybody. With so many millions of creators on the platform, viewers often gravitate towards you as a person and how your personality shines through. Your going to be sharing your tips, tricks or opinions, but you're doing it in your way.
Viewers often turn towards platforms like YouTube, Instagram, or Twitter because they want to see something different and something unique. If they see something that's not polished, or contains the odd blooper, that's relatable. Whether you're looking for a tutorial, or you just want to be entertained, I think people are just drawn to people, which is why I think YouTube is such a massive platform for that kind of stuff. YouTube is about entertaining, and informing, but mainly it's about you just being you.
Tune into this week's TubeTalk podcast to learn how to stand out as a creator on YouTube. Huge thanks to Sidney for his insights and advice - don't forget to subscribe to his YouTube channel, and follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
