First YouTube Video Ideas

So as a blogger the first place you want to look for video topic ideas is your google analytics. What’s getting traffic on your blog right now? We’re talking organic traffic!

The content on your site that’s getting the most traffic is probably a good place to start for coming up with your first YouTube video ideas and topics that are going to get views.

It’s as simple as looking at your top traffic pages and posts on your site, and making a list of ideas for your first YouTube video ideas.

YouTube Video Ideas from your Audience

The second place to find viable video topic ideas is your existing audience.

Using social media and your email list, ask specifically what they want to see from you on video. Maybe they want a day-in-the-life vlog-style video, or there may be topics that are simply better explained in video format (especially if you’re a DIY’er or a recipe blog). There might be some basic skills your audience needs in order to complete a project or cook a recipe… make videos on that!

How to Find Video Topic Ideas on YouTube

The third place to look for viable YouTube video topic ideas… is…. YouTube! What are other people in your niche making videos about? Don’t copy them, obviously… but put your own ideas and creativity and personality into it. Create a unique piece of content on those topics.

I don’t know about you, but I never watch just one video on something I’m trying to learn.

When you go to the bookstore to find a book on a particular topic, you’ll find TONS of books in each niche right? Of course! People who want to learn and absorb info on that topic want to take in as much information and ideas as they can.

So you don’t have to come up with fresh new topics, you can create your own fresh new content on topics that are already performing well on YouTube. You’re just joining the conversation!
