Youtube channel ideas part 1

In this article we give a few ideas for a youtube channel that you can setup. These are popular topics and I also tried to supply ideas that are not deemed as controversial, you can do a political channel but that not work well at the moment and I would not recommend channels featuring kids or prank videos due to the outcry some of these channels receive


Anyway on with the ideas

Gaming Videos

There are thousands of people on Youtube making videos in the gaming niche and there’s a huge audience. I personally like watching Football Manager videos.

If you’re a good gamer and not afraid to share your gaming experience with others start a gaming YouTube channel. there are lots of games, pick a popular one and play it.

Tech & Gadget Review videos

I enjoy watching people who review the latest technology to listen to their opinions on a product. You need to explain features to an audience in a way they will understand but there will also be tech savvy people watching so your information has to be accurate. These channels can be huge.

Drawing Videos

If you are good at drawing or sketching, why not teach others as well. I am hopeless at drawing, a step-by-step video would help people learn the process of drawing. You could focus on cartoons, kids projects, every day objects – anything you want

App review videos

Do you like to download and play apps, can you review the app and tell others about your experience. You will have to record your device screen but this is possible, in fact you can install an emulator on your PC and record that as an option. This is quite an easy channel to setup.

Digital Marketing videos

We all want to make money on the internet and lots of us are interested in passive income. A channel where you can explain new opportunities to make money, test tools, review money making methods and step by step basic tutorials are all good ideas. How about niche site setup, investing tips – there are lots of topics here but you have to know what you are talking about. The hard sell that several channels employ can be off putting as well.
