Five Easy Steps To Create Your Own Internet Video Show (For Next To Nothing!)

Hello everyone,

Would you like to have your own Internet video show? Sounds expensive right? Today I’ll show you how to do it in five easy steps that will cost you next to nothing!

1) Create Your Own YouTube Channel: This is where everyone will watch your shows and hopefully subscribe to your channel. YouTube provides all of the bandwidth so it’s free – if you put video on your own website you will have to pay for the bandwidth.

2) Buy A Tripod And An Inexpensive Camcorder: The tripod will free you up and keep the video from being shaky. The camcorder should have an external microphone jack so that your audio is good.

3) Do Your Show And Record Yourself: Have fun and give great, valuable content to your viewers/listeners. Make sure that the audio and video quality are good. The video doesn’t have to be the best of the best but the audio should be very clear.

4) Edit Your Video: There are many great video editing programs out there. Some are very expensive and some are free. A good free one that I like is VideoPad Video Editor, but there are many to choose from.

5) Upload Your Edited Video To Your YouTube Channel: Fill out your video information including title, description, and tags. Tags are key words used to describe your video. These tags will help people search and locate your videos on YouTube.

That’s it! Your done! Keep producing great content and you will soon have a loyal following on your own YouTube channel!!

Professor Randy says: If you’ve got something valuable to show, say, or teach, then by all means share it with the world on your own YouTube channel. And by all means, do it for next to nothing!!

    Great post. Thank you for recommending VideoPad video editing software I totally agree that a tripod is a great way to go, but for anyone that does find themselves with a shaky video, you should know and try the video stabilization feature built into VideoPad which will also help to correct shaky video.
