Did you know that the right iPhone apps can help turn your YouTube personal video blog into a success? I know it sounds hard to believe since there is a tremendous amount of competing video channels out there. The good news is most people who put up a channel quickly forget about it. Either they make videos that have nothing to do with their initial target niche or they just lose interest altogether.
Kim Dao is a YouTube beauty video blogger from Australia. She has achieved quite a following teaching people from all over the world the ins and outs of beauty, makeup, as well as product reviews. She is originally from Australia. She now lives in Japan and we are treated to an inside look on what life is like in Japan. Kim Dao traces a lot of attributes, a lot of her success, to certain iPhone apps that enabled her to put out better content.
For example, by paying attention to what’s hot on Instagram, she produces content people are truly interested in. By taking note of hot beauty product trends on Pinterest, thanks to that platform’s iPhone app, Kim is on top of the latest breaking trends in the world of beauty products. This is one particular product category that is very finicky. People change tastes overnight. It’s like people are in love with a product one day and completely fall out of love with it the next day. That’s just how fickle trends can be in this particular niche. As you can probably tell, ‘disappearing’ or bored audiences are kryptonite to video talents like Kim, Pewdiepie, and others. They have to make sure they are delivering just the right type of content to their audiences or other up and coming video talents are sure to gun for their following. Talk about competitive! You have to stay in front of the curve or you might just not be able to recover if your competitor scoops up your audience.
Using Instagram and Pinterest also enables video creators on youtube, vimeo, and other social video platforms to find ‘gray areas’ of demand. These are niches or sub-niches their audiences might be interested in which don’t have too many videos. These are golden opportunities because if the competition isn’t already saturating these, these can be easily dominated by a vlogger willing to put in the time to create content for these. Again, hashtags and other social media signals can give would be vloggers and video content publishers the information they need to spot key content opportunities.
Kim Dao is able to stay on top of this fast-changing and very trendy niche, thanks to these two amazing iPhone apps. If you want to achieve the same kind of success, make no mistake about it. The apps that you use on your phone can give you pretty much all the trend tips you need to stay ahead of the curve. You need to stay distinctive. You need to produce quality content and having the right apps on your iPhone can definitely help.
