Are you planning creating your own YouTube channel and searching the best niche? Here are the 9 popular YouTube channel ideas! You can catch these ideas until it gets old.
Since launched YouTube in 2005, YouTube has grown up from a relatively unknown site for aspiring filmmakers to the most popular video streaming site on the planet. YouTube now hosts to video channels that cover every subject imaginable. Given the large number of videos that are posted on YouTube everyday, you would have thought that the chances of launching new popular channels would be remote. But, if you have a unique idea, you understand video marketing and YouTube analytics, and you have a bit of film-making flair, it is still possible to launch a viral video channel on YouTube. Vlogging is just like blogging, though. The best way to become successful on YouTube is to focus on a niche. So, if you are searching for good or unique ideas for your YouTube channel, here are nine of the most popular niches for new YouTube channels.
1. Product Reviews
Some of the most popular YouTube channels are those that offer advice/help and useful information. One way that you can capitalize on that trend is to review/unboxing products and services. There are several formats that product review videos can be made. There are unboxing videos, where you shoot video yourself unpacking a new product, straight out of the box, and trying it out. You can also have products through their paces in product testing videos. Instructional or helping videos on how to use products are also very popular.
2. Gadgets and Technology
You can have knowledge that you have good use on a YouTube video channel. Remember, things that you find simple to do, other people won’t know how to do at all. One very good example of this is technology and gadgets. If you are a photoshop expert, for example, you can share your skills with “how to” videos. If you know how to take apart and fix a computer, there will be other people who want to learn how to do that. The first place that most people go to find out how to do something is the internet. A video is so much easier to learn than a manual. If you make tech tutorial videos that are entertaining and informative, you will soon start to see your YouTube views mount up.
People love to find new ways to save time or save money, so there is always a big demand for hacks. You can also start a channel with general lifehacks or you can concentrate on a sub niche, such as makeup hacks, cooking hacks, or household hacks. This type of channel also gives the prospect of using the proven method of top lists. Whether it’s top 10 eyeliner hacks, 12 unbelievable uses of baking soda or 8 ways to save money on birthday gifts, lists like these are a great way to attract viewers.
Personal Vlogging is probably the easiest way to start your own YouTube channel. The things that happen in your personal life may seem mundane to you, but they might be fascinating for other people to watch. You don’t need any special equipment to be vlogger. You simply need to record your daily life, your thoughts, and your opinion. Just in the same way as you would with a diary. Of course, if you are a flirtatious person, or slightly quirky way of presenting your videos, that will increase your chances of finding yourself with a viral video on your channel.
If you like playing game and you are a gamer, you have a potential goldmine of a niche for your YouTube channel. The most popular gaming YouTubers enjoy some of the highest YouTube analytics of every time. PewDiePie, for example, has 74 million subscribers. There are many ways that you can approach gaming videos. You can include news of latest games or you could do walk-throughs of popular of games. Another popular format of gaming video is the speed run, which is where you run through an entire game as quickly as you can. As well as keeping up with the latest gaming news, gamers want to see how other people are playing the games. So, providing a game commentary with helpful tips help to grow your subscribers.
6. Health and Fitness Tips
The first place that many people find health and fitness tips is YouTube. Health and fitness is a very popular topic that accounts for quite a large number of the viral videos that are widely shared. Workout videos are especially popular, because it is much easier to follow a workout on video than workout from a book. If you relate your workouts to a personal story, you could have a viral video on your hands very well. Popular health and fitness channels are offered video marketing opportunities as well. Once your channel’s YouTube analytics reach a decent level, you may be offered sponsorship opportunities as well.
Traveling is a popular topic for YouTube videos. This is something that can be easily combined with personal vlogging. Even if you do not travel far from home, sharing your experiences will still be interesting for people who do not live in your region. All you need to do is take your camera with wherever you travel. Then, you can shoot videos of the things you see around and the interesting people you meet along the way.
8. Cooking and Recipes
YouTube videos are the best way to explain how to cook recipes. Recipe books are Ok, but people love to see exactly how ingredients are prepared and mixed in motion picture (video) as well. There are lots of sub niches of the topic of cooking that you could focus on. For example, you can show people how to make dishes from your own region, or you could concentrate on one type of cooking, such as baking. These type of YouTube channels can also attract video marketing opportunities as well. If your channel becomes popular, you may be approached by businesses to promote their ingredients or cooking utensils.
The another type of channel that makes more viral videos than any other are the humor channels. It’s a category that can be applied to so many types of videos. Most of the successful YouTubers use humor in their videos, even if the main topic is something else. If you can put a smile on people’s faces, your videos will be shared, and your YouTube analytics will take off. Just remember to stay on the right side of good taste, though. As Logan Paul found out, if you go too far, you will find that you lose all your video marketing advertisers very quickly indeed.
