Itâ€™s an undisputed fact that gaming is the #1 form of entertainment on YouTube, and just the Internet period! So many casual and serious gamers have become internet celebrities because of this. Now almost every gamer is trying to replicate this success.
I mean why not get paid to play?
But this is a problem, since millions of people are trying to do thisâ€¦itâ€™s hard to break out. Why watch your channel, when I can watch someone elseâ€™? This should be a conversation you have with yourself.
Self awareness is key!
Also donâ€™t try to be another YouTube gamer. Thereâ€™s droves of wannabe Pewdiepies. But Pewdiepie is Pewdiepie, and youâ€™re you. Itâ€™s alright to be influenced by him, but donâ€™t be him. Chances are youâ€™ll come off inauthentic, and people can smell a fake from a mile away.
Be your own purple elephant!
Mix up your content, donâ€™t just try to do lets play videos all the time. Interview a YouTube gamer, review a game, talk video game culture. Mix up the formula. Luckily if youâ€™re being you, youâ€™re already different. You just got to apply your uniqueness.
Lastly do it for fun!
Since everyone knows they could make a living making gaming YouTube videos, a lot of people share for the wrong reasons. Their goal is to get paid to play and not just play. This creates impatience, and the road to YouTube success is a long one. So take your time, and share what you love. Overtime if itâ€™s good, people will come.
