7 Vlogging Tips for Beginners

7 Vlogging Tips for Beginners  

by Angus Jones

G Gunawan shares his 7 Vlogging Tips for Beginners to gain the essential skills and knowledge needed to kickstart your vlogging journey successfully. In an age where digital content creation is thriving, there is no better time for beginners to perfect the art of vlogging and carve their niche in the online landscape. 

1.       Know the subject matter that you want to talk about. The more you’re passionate about the subject, the easier the delivery will be, and your enthusiasm will come across better. 

2.       Script and plan. This is to ensure your delivery is on point and not off track. If you’re generally already good with talking, bullet points would work best for you. However, if you feel writing the full script really help you vlog, then go with it. Know yourself and prepare accordingly.  

3.       Break up your talking points into smaller sections. You don’t have to vlog the whole essay in one take. In most cases, it is a lot easier to break down the delivery into smaller chunks. And sometimes, the change of scene, when vlogging outdoors, gets the audience to stay engaged. 

4.       You will make mistakes and it’s okay. We ALL make vlogging mistakes with the ‘uh’ and ‘umms’, or even losing the train of thought. It is completely normal. Just pick it up from where you left off. 

5.       People do not care. Vlogging in public could be really daunting at first. But remember, people do not look down on you for vlogging. People do not care. Even if they care, they are actually more interested rather than the opposite. 

6.       Do not overthink it. The more you overthink stuff, the more resistance you will build. Just wing it, accept that it’s not gonna be perfect. One done is better than hundreds of going to’s. 

7.       Practice, practice, practice and have fun. Vlogging, especially in public space is like an exercise. It’s not easy to start. But the more you do it, the easier it will get.
