YouTube has become a platform for many animators to share their content and even gain dedicated followers and animation clients. You can also become a YouTube animator, but there are some important tips from successful YouTube animators you need to remember:
1. Look for Inspiration
It's not always easy to come up with new content ideas. So having inspiration for your animated videos is vital. These can be things you enjoy like comics, movies, video games, etc. You can also draw ideas from your personal life experiences.
2. Know your animation niche
One of the things that will help you create content and gain an audience is deciding on your animation niche. Choose a niche in which you know you can serve content that appeals to your target audience.
3. Make evergreen animated content
Take note that some topics like political events can become outdated in the future. To stay relevant, ensure that the subject matter of your animated videos is evergreen.
4. Come up with good video titles
Your video title is the first thing your viewers will see along with the thumbnail. So make sure it contains keywords that will make your video clickable.
5. Engage with your subscribers
One way you can do this is to ask your viewers what kind of content they'd like to see and ask for feedback about your current and past content.
6. Upload animated videos on a schedule
Posting your animated videos on a consistent schedule makes it easier for your subscribers to keep up with your new content. This will also help your channel to gain more traffic, watch time, and new subscribers.
7. Collaborate with other animators
Collaborate with other animators when the workload becomes too heavy to handle by yourself. Apart from allowing you to focus on specific tasks for your channel, collaboration allows you to network and learn from other animators.
