But.. you have no idea where to begin. Guess what? Neither did your favorite YouTuber when they started.

Here are 5 benefits of starting a channel anyways:

🎓 You’ll learn new skills

When you start creating videos, you’ll refine your skills over time.

  • Graphic design
  • Video production & editing
  • Audio engineering

🙋🏻‍♀️ You’ll reach more people

Through YouTube, you can grow your fanbase and expand your network more quickly than ever before.

  • The internet provides a much larger audience than any local show ever will.
  • Connecting with other music YouTubers helps grow your professional network.

🎶 You’ll cultivate a content library over time (a portfolio of your music)

You can share your content with people interested in learning about your music or repurpose the videos for other uses.

  • This content can be used for marketing, demos, promos, etc
  • You can repurpose your content on different platforms

📈 You’ll gain experience with content marketing and analytics

Analytics allow you to determine what resonates with your audience, which allows you to produce better content over time and reach more people.

  • One aspect of a successful YouTube strategy includes learning how to get your videos in front of the right people.
  • In order to learn how to get yourself seen, you need to learn about algorithms and analytics; it may sound scary, but the skills and understanding will come with time as your channel grows with you.

💰 You’ll build additional revenue streams

As your channel grows, you’ll see more opportunities for building revenue streams from your audience, such as:

  • Patreon, Buy Me a Coffee, Zelle, PayPal,
  • Redirecting to other products/services you offer
  • YouTube Adsense (Note: you cannot monetize copyrighted music)
