1. Create Good-quality Content

YouTube is a platform to promote vlog content. The quality of content is the most important thing you should pay attention to.


Choose an area of content you are familiar with or have some experience on. For instance, let’s say that you are a make-up artist knowing how to do different types of make-up and how to match the color of lipsticks and eyeshadow. Your experience will be useful for the make-up beginners. When your videos can really help some watchers, they might be your followers.

2. Establish A Recognizable Brand

Your videos should have your own style. Let watchers know the video is of your channel once they have watched it.


Use the same video opening. It can consist of your own logo, text of your channel name and other decorative design. The opening is the mark of your videos which makes all your videos like one range. You can improve the design of the opening in the next videos time by time.

3. Choose a suitable video editor

4. Share Vlogs On Different Platforms

YouTube is one of the online platforms. You can share your videos on other social medias like Facebook or Twitter to attract more potential followers.


Facebook is the largest social online media. You can post your videos on it to get more views. Pay attention that as the users of Facebook surf the interface by sliding the screen, they won’t spend much time on one video. So we recommend you cut your vlog and leave the interesting parts. Then merge those as a new clip and post it on Facebook. While on the platform of Twitter, you can add relevant hashtags to the tweet for your vlog.


5. Collaborate With Other YouTubers

You can contact other YouTubers and make videos together. It is a good chance to let different audiences get to know your channels. So that you can increase visibility. For both collaborative partners, it could be a win-win situation .


The content of your collaborative video should combine your own styles. The new way of making videos brings freshness to your old followers and attracts new watchers.


6. Rotating And Cropping Videos

Sometimes your original videos may be tilted. To keep the video balanced, you can use the “Rotate” function in Filmage Editor to adjust the angle to vertical. If you record something irrelevant in your vlog, Filmage Editor can help remove those extra stuff. Click “Crop” and select the video area you want to remove useless elements. And the main subject can be emphasized.


7. Picture-In-Picture Effect

If you are looking for certain cool editing effects, the picture-in-picture effect is perfect for you. You can use this function in Filmage Editor to create a complex watching effect. Drag a video onto the track then put the same one onto another. Use “Transform” to make the video of the upper lay smaller. Then adjust the video color on the bottom to make the upper video conspicuous.


8. Using Cartoon Stickers  

Filmage Editor provides 8 types of stickers. When the characters of the vlog perform angrily or happily, select a sticker of “Emotion” category and expand the emotion expression. Or when you are adding subtitles, you can put “Dialogue Box” under the text and make it more vivid.


9. Adding Background Music

Music has the power to create an atmosphere and express your emotion. You can use Filmage Editor to add music to vlogs. Import the music first. Then drag it onto the audio track. You can also edit the audio in Filmage Editor, like adding “Audio Fading” effect to make audios blend with the videos.


Besides, recording voiceover is a good choice for daily vlogs. If you record the daily routine without saying any word, you can record a voiceover about your feelings at that time. Filmage Editor has an audio recording function. Just import your voiceless vlog to the editor and you can record the voiceover.


10. Slow-Motion

Slow footage can adjust the vlog pacing and stress certain moments. If you want to emphasize a funny moment, you can copy this clip and make it into slow-motion. Just to copy this clip first and slow the speed of the copy. You can make it easily with Filmage Editor.
