I feel like I’m traveling with you when I watch your videos.” – A comment on one of my YouTube videos.

And in fact, many of the emails and Facebook messages I get asked these days, begin something like, “Hey, I saw your videos…”

Why did I share this?

It demonstrates the power you have with videos, and the potential you have to connect with your audience.

In this post, I’m going to share with you a step-by-step guide on how to make travel videos for YouTube (and then depending on what your goal is, I’ll show you how to grow your channel and subscribers).

Why Are Videos Important?

Word of Warning: This guide is long and extensive (and I share a lot of the things I’ve done to grow my YouTube channel), so if you’re interesting in learning how to make travel videos (or any video) for YouTube, I would encourage you to read through ALL of it. And if you have a question, leave a comment at the bottom.

The reason videos are so important is because they are incredibly engaging and offer a well rounded sensory experience that includes visual motion, sound, story, and personality.

I always loved taking photos of food and blogging about it, but I continued to think to myself that there had to be a better way to show the atmosphere of eating and the emotion of tasting delicious food.

It was sometime in 2011 that it hit me:

I needed to start making travel and food videos and posting them on my YouTube channel.

On that day I committed myself to learning how to make travel videos (mostly food focused), and how to optimize video SEO on YouTube (which is not only the biggest video website platform, but also the world’s second largest search engine).

When I first started making video, I had no experience, and had little clue what I was doing (and I only had a small point and shoot camera). Today, my YouTube channel is my main sources of making money and getting traffic.

The point of saying this is:

Videos have massive potential. And even if you have no experience, and have no idea what you’re doing, you can still get started today (and this guide will walk you through getting started).

You can make great videos, even by yourself.

How to Make Travel Videos for YouTube

One of the greatest things about making travel videos yourself is that you’re the producer, and you can decide what you want to do, how you want to film your story, and you don’t have to let anyone else approve your video before you publish it.

This first section is going to cover a quick formula for how to make travel videos, and we’ll then go much more in-depth about each of these topics below.

4 Basic Steps:

  1. Define Your Story: According to the Harvard Business Review, our brains naturally love stories and are attracted to following them. Think about what story you’re going to share in your video.
  2. Film Your Video: Once you have your story, it’s time to start filming your video. I would recommend getting lots of both close up detailed shots, and long wide shots. And get some extra shots for post editing too.
  3. Edit Your Video: Editing your video is the process of taking the raw clips you filmed, and making them into a flowable story, where you can cut out parts you don’t need, and keep everything in sequence. Editing a video is sort of like doing a puzzle, you get to fit everything together.
  4. Publish and Promote: Once you’ve created your video, it’s time to upload it to YouTube or anywhere else of your choosing, and optimize and promote it so you can share your video story with others.

Now, let’s get into some serious details.

Wouldn’t it be nice to make a video eating blue rice, instead of just having a photo?

Travel Video Ideas

Before you start making travel videos, you might want to take some time to think about the types of travel videos you want to create.

Sometimes though, it helps to start making videos first. Then once you’ve done some experimenting, you’ll be able to narrow in on the types of videos you enjoy making, and that are most effective for what you’re doing.

Types of videos

There are many kinds of travel video possibilities and these are just a few to get your ideas flowing.

But the BEST way to figure out what kind of travel videos you want to start making, is to start filming and publishing and seeing what works and what you enjoy.

What’s the most important thing about a video?

Casey Neistat, one of the greatest vloggers on YouTube, has consistently said “story” is the most important component of ANY video.

I fully agree.

Have you ever watched one of those amazingly filmed scenery videos with the gorgeous footage and music in the background? After about a minute of watching, maybe you got bored and went to the next video. It’s inspirational, but not a story.

On the flip-side, you’ve watched a video where someone is explaining something or sharing something, that keeps you engaged and watching, and walks you through a story. And all of a sudden you don’t know where 10 minutes just went.

Think about a story for every video you make.

Will you be the face of your video?

The way I see it, there are in general just 2 different types of travel videos:

  1. You are in the video
  2. You are not in the video

I’ll tell you this:

If viewers can see your face and feel your personality, they will instantly connect much better with you than if they don’t see your face.

I’m not saying you need to be the main part of your video, but what I think works best is a mixture of being on camera and then overlaying video clips to explain what you’re talking about.

I was nervous and felt weird the first time I decided to make a food video on camera. Speaking in front of the camera, even if you’re filming yourself, can be a scary thing. But I’m here to tell you that, just like most things you practice, you get better and more comfortable at it.

If you choose not to be on camera you can always edit your videos and add voice overs or add music to your travel videos.

Video Cameras and Equipment

Cameras and equipment are of course essential for making videos. But at the same time, if you don’t have a plan or story, they aren’t worth much.

Video quality is important, but at the same time, I would encourage you to still make videos, even if you don’t feel your equipment is good enough. You can record great video nowadays with point and shoot cameras, or even phones.

I started with a point and shoot camera (I think it was 4.3 megapixel), and I also formerly used a Canon 70D to film my videos (the Canon 80D is the updated version and a great camera). It’s a great camera because it has a wonderful autofocus so you can easily film yourself. But it’s a pretty big and bulky camera.

As of mid 2015, I switched over to a mirrorless camera that is much smaller and easier to use, and I’ve been very happy with the image quality.

Video camera I use:

Almost all my videos are filmed with this simple setup. You may also want to consider using a tripod or monopod for best video results, but it’s not necessary. I normally don’t carry a full tripod with me, but I do use a Joby gorilla pod frequently.

editing travel videos
Editing video takes time, but it’s well worth it

Edit Your YouTube Videos

There are endless ways for how to make travel videos and edit them, but here’s a formula that I use, and it has worked well.

As a side note, knowing how I’m going to edit my videos, also helps me when I’m filming. So it might be helpful for you to decided how your going to edit before you start filming.

4 Step Editing Formula:

  1. Introduction (around 10 seconds): The first 10 seconds of your video are hugely important. If it’s no engaging enough, people will leave your video. Capture viewers attention with something interesting or tell them what your video is going to be about.
  2. You logo brand (5 seconds): Next, promote your brand. I simply use my logo and add music to it, but others have a more fancy intro.
  3. Body of video: (3 – 8 minutes, or could be longer): This is the body storyline of your video, the bulk of the content.
  4. Ending and Call To Action (around 10 – 15 seconds): At the end of your video, it’s a good idea to have a call to action. I usually ask viewers to click thumbs up (this can help increase your video rankings), and to subscribe for future videos. One of the most effective ways to achieve a call to action at the end of a video is to speak it, ask viewers to do something. But you can also include an end card that you annotate (do this by building it into your video when you’re editing).

A good length to aim for is from 3 – 10 minutes, but you can also try different length videos as well. I’ve had shorter 1 minute videos do well, and longer 15 minute videos do well.

For this travel videos guide, I’m not going to get into the details of actual editing. However, it’s pretty easy to learn, depending on what software you use. You don’t need to worry about special effects or doing anything too fancy, just mainly focus on cutting out parts you don’t need and adding in pieces you do need to complete your story.

Editing Tools

You’ve created your video, it’s now time to upload it.

Upload Your Video to YouTube

After shooing and editing your videos, it’s time to upload them to YouTube!

For starters, I always upload my videos as “Private,” so that I can put all the finishing touches, like keywords, descriptions, titles, and annotations, on them before publishing it to the public.

This also allows me to schedule my videos to publish at the exact time that I’ve told my subscribers I’m going to publish.

I probably don’t need to mention this, but just login to your YouTube account, click upload in the upper right corner, and simply drag your video file onto the upload screen. Then wait until it finishes uploading and processing.

But the work doesn’t end here…

video SEO
Use keywords to your advantage

Optimize Your Video for YouTube

Making and editing a video is only half the work… keep persisting to optimize your videos, it’s worth it in the long run.

What’s the point of optimizing (YouTube SEO)?

Let’s say you have two phrases that mean the same thing, like: “What to do in Bangkok” and “Things to do in Bangkok.” But let’s say 10 times more people search for one of the phrases over the other. Wouldn’t you want to know which phrase that is so that you can target it with your video?

This process looks complicated, but really once you get the hang of it, you can do it pretty quickly and effortlessly, and it gets much easier the more you do it.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is not something you have to overdo with it comes to marketing your videos on YouTube, but it is helpful to target words that get more traffic.

growing your youtube channel
Here are some steps you can take to grow your YouTube channel

How to Grow Your YouTube Channel

The way I see it there are 2 main methods of growing your channel which are in your control.

  1. Gain Subscribers: Subscribers are people who subscribe to your YouTube channel and when you publish a video, they are notified and often watch your newest published videos soon after you release them.
  2. Create Evergreen Videos (Video SEO): Evergreen content are videos that rank well when people search on YouTube or Google, and can continue to rack up views over time. These videos bring in new viewers continuously (day and night), and you always have an opportunity to convert them into subscribers. Tips for creating evergreen videos is summarized in the optimize section above.

I say “in your control” because you can do these two things yourself to boost your YouTube channel.

Other less controllable methods for growing your YouTube channels are are somewhat out of your immediate control.

However, focusing on the two things mentioned above and improving your overall channel authority and watch time, will increase your chances of less controllable factors which include things like YouTube promoting your videos as suggested videos or even having one of your videos go viral.

Things To Do:

If you follow these tips and keep publishing videos, I’m pretty confident your YouTube channel will grow.

Conclusion

Along with first starting a blog, the decision to start making travel and food videos for YouTube and growing my YouTube channel, was probably the best choice I’ve made in my online career.

In this guide on how to make travel videos for YouTube we’ve gone over a step by step plan on how you can start to make videos and grow your channel (and your videos don’t need to be only about travel, this guide will work for any subject of video).

There’s no doubt that it takes a lot of work. But the beauty of making videos, especially when you have a a platform like YouTube to share them on, is that you have the potential to connect with millions of people from around the world.

Don’t wait, start creating and telling your story today.

Cash advances or trade credits on open accounts are usually used after the buyer and seller develop a trusted relationship. Therefore trade finance structures are used to support these relationships.

    “Pyar Ko Pane Ka Wazifa & Pyar Ko Pane Ka Taweez”A great many people see that, affection is an essential part that you saw. Love is practically any God and it’s a genuine serene confidence for the globe. Love is some kind of most joyful snapshot of every individual life. It makes living total, in the event that you like somebody and it is ideal to not live without start to see the contemplations.

    I will be retiring next year and plan to travel. I have lived in California all of my adult life and the sad part is because of the 9-5 I never really got to see the rest of our state. For the past couple of weeks I thought about bliss and blogs but didn’t know where to start so I have been looking for articles and blogs on how to get started. Your blog was the most informative! Thank you! I have not subscribed to any channels yet but definitely want to follow you! Maybe I missed it all together, I didn’t see the name of your channel. If you have a video on how to pick out cameras for beginners, how to shoot a video and how to edit step by step, I would love that! Thank you for all of the information you shared, it was a lot to take in for someone who has no experience but very helpful!

    Lord Rama, the 7th incarnation of Vishnu, was born in Ayodhya. The Ram Janmabhoomi Temple was built as a place of worship. In 1528 A.D., Babur, the Mughal emperor, ordered the demolition of the temple to build a mosque. In 1922 the mosque too was demolished. Despite all this, the site of the original Ayodhya temple is a place of pilgrimage for devout Hindus.

    Thanks for the wonderful advice. I think it’s great how you are able to create some of those photos with only an iPhone. You have a wonderful eye for composition.

    I’ve been following your blog for the last month. I love your honesty in the content you write about the positive and negative aspects of solo travel and blogging. I really feel I can relate to it.
    I have been solo travelling for the past 3 years but have only just started to document it with a blog of my own. I’m at a transition phase in the way in which I travel and the way in which I work to travel as I am working towards creating my own travel business within the kitesurfing industry. Reading your blog and being able to relate to your content has inspired me to blog to document my travels and my development as I create my dream career.
    I would be honoured if you could take a look at my first post and see what you think.

    This is great, thank you so much for this! I’ve been thinking about doing videos for awhile so this is really handy. What do you think about Youtube vs FB videos? I do a lot of recipes and have seen how great recipe videos can do on FB, but I guess it must be harder to monetise there. Do you post yours to Youtube only or do you cross-post to Facebook? Presumably views on Facebook don’t count towards Youtube?

    This is awesome! I have been blogging since 2015 when my husband and I went part-time with work and hit the road. I love sharing my experiences with others and inspiring people to get out and explore (even it’s their own state or country). We recently turned our minivan into a campervan and will be traveling about 6-8 months out of the year so I would like to advance our video skills and YouTube channel as I find less time to sit and write when we are out on the road plus I feel like it is a more intimate way to connect with our followers. I’m going to implement most of these tips this year and will let you know how it goes! I’m so excited to get started. My 9-year old nephews says, as long as you tell your subscribers to “smash that like button” I’m golden. LOL Thanks for the encouragement!

It didn’t occur to me until after I came back from Thailand and Colombia that this is a great platform for researching upcoming trips, amongst a host of other things, like “I wish I would have known” before I went. I’m heading to Belize in December over Christmas and I’m going to give this my first shot. It’s something I’ve thought about a lot. I have one question, with your camera isn’t it hard to hold a selfie stick and walk and talk? Also, would a Go Pro be sufficient in some instances? I have a Nikon 5200 which is too bulky.

    Hey, Mark! I love your videos and your personality! The only problem is that I get really hungry when I watch them 🙂 I was wondering as I’ve noticed that you’ve got very few videos from Europe, if you’re planning some more trips there. If so, I would strongly suggest considering the Balkans. I personally am Bulgarian and consider the cuisine of the Balkan countries extremely good. It consists of many various traditional dishes with rich flavours and what adds to it is that the quality of the ingredients such as meat, vegetables, fruit, eat. is really fresh and tasty, due to the good soil and weather conditions.
    If you feel interested, I can send you many pictures, as well as amazing traditional restaurants around the country, and I’m sure that the neighbouring countries will do the same. And if you ask me, you can’t skip Serbia and Greece 🙂

    Best wishes,
    Leny

    A very nice description. Wonderful and practical information. Here is my question:
    I wish to do a weekly video of 10-15 minutes duration. I’ve been a Producer/Director for over 45 years and I do the shooting, editing narration etc. How in the world can you monetize your videos? I do not want to slug them with commercials. Do you solicit donations? Charge a subscription of say $5.00 a year once it gets going? I am not shooting anything that can be plugged or marketed. Not shooting businesses, restaurants or anything that makes anyone any money. How have others made enough money to keep one in good equipment, fuel and living expenses so that the videos can be perpetuated? I thank you in advance for your reply.

    Thanks so much for this article. I’ve been considering doing some video work for my blog, and your tips are going to come in really handy. QUick question – do you find lots of people coming to your blog through videos, or do they just tend to watch them on your youtube channel?

    • Mark Wiens

      Thank you very much. The rate of people coming to the blog from videos is low, but if you give them a real reason to go back to the blog for more info or something special, it will be higher. Plus it can be very targeted traffic.

    your vlogs are really inspirational for those who want to pursue his/her career in making travel vlogs, travel guide videos or any kind of videos (obviously on good ideas, most importantly on good stories) on youtube . I love the way of your spontaneous communication with your viewers with various kinds of delicious food around the world. I also love the way you eat your food with full of emotion. Hopefully, you will make more videos in future and we will be able to know more new things through your youtube channel and website. Thank you so much.

    Thanks for putting all of these tips together. I think that it’s very important that you are aware of the time you want to spend on your blog and find the correct balance. It’s very shocking to see that we waste a lot of useful time and we could accomplish lots of things if we would spend it wisely. As a student, I find it hard to dedicate time on my blog. I don’t do it professionally, I have it as a hobby, but this year I wanted to start taking it more seriously and this post was very helpful 🙂

  • Maggie Pitcher

    Mark — thanks for the great detailed article. My husband and I live in our RV full-time and travel, and I make videos about our adventures. Most of the travel vlogs that I know put out episodes in the 10-15 minute range, and that is what has felt natural for our episodes too. I feel like I’m pretty good on the keywords and I try to make enticing thumbnails. If you have a chance, we’d be so honored if you’d check out our channel and give any feedback that might help us improve. We’ve been at it for about 7 months and are just so slow to grow. Thanks so much, sincerely Maggie

    Thank you for spreading your knowledge! I have a couple logistics questions …

    1) Do locals who appear in your videos need to sign any kind of release, particularly when you plan to monetize?
    2) How have you dealt with permits, especially when so much travel happens on the fly?

    Hoping to start my own series soon! Thanks again for sharing what you’ve learned so this community can keep growing and growing. 🙂

    Erin

    • Mark Wiens

      5 years ago

      Hi Erin, thank you for reading, glad this is helpful.

      1. No, I don’t do any kind of release forms. But most of my videos are just open and filmed in public areas. I haven’t done any official interview types of videos, but perhaps if you get more serious about that kind of stuff, it would be more necessary, and also really depending on the country.
      2. Filming permits? Luckily my camera and and just my self production with no tripod, doesn’t attract too much attention. So I’ve never needed film permits, apart from asking the restaurant if I can film.

      Looking forward to seeing your videos!

  • J

    Hi Mark! First of all, I love your article and your channel in general.

    I make short “summary” videos of my travels in a cinematic way because that’s what I like to do, instead of making Vlog style travel videos. But it means that I don’t have a lot of content to post consistently. What would you recommend for a someone like me to grow their channel? I make sure that I comment, have please subscribe notes here and there, and have ending cards, and I plan to link my instagram to my youtube channel as well, my instagram holds my travel photography that hopefully will work well with the youtube channel. But is there anything else I can do? Or is time the only real factor here? Haha. Just be patient and wait?

    Thank you for your time!

    • Mark Wiens

      5 years ago

      Hi J, great to hear from you and thank you very much. Very cool with the videos. In my opinion, it takes a lot of content on a regular basis to keep a channel maintained and to experience more growth. So if there’s anything you can do to keep to a more consistent schedule and push yourself to produce more content, I would recommend it. All the best and your videos are awesome.

I also love Helen’s Recipes, Van’s Kitchen and others; as I was a food service professional for 45 years, and since I’m not able to indulge in my life-long passion to travel, I am happy that I found you and your lovely wife to follow in your adventures. Keep up the great work and take care.

    Hi Mark,
    I first came across your videos by chance. I was going to Tokyo and had never been before. I randomly looked for things to do and came across your 25 things to do in Tokyo. I liked your style and enthusiasm for whatever you did as I started to look at other videos you made. Anyway, I went to Tokyo (Via Istanbul) and have been to some of the places you have visited there, anyway, I used your list of things to do in Tokyo. I showed your list to a friend who lives in Tokyo and he said that was a very good list of things to do in the city. It was, I didn’t do everything you did due to time constraints, but I did most of it.
    Istanbul you travelled to-first class and I picked up some tips as I plan to return to that wonderful city as soon as I can. Rome, was there two years ago and plan to go back to some of the places you have been.the
    I was in Gothenburg in Sweden in August, beautiful, but very, very expensive.
    Please keep up the excellent work and if you make it to Scotland please let me know.
    Kind regards

    I wanted to ask: The “call to action” for people to subscribe and comment and like, etc. is a very important one, isn’t it? Simply because I just started I feel bad for asking haha.

    Thank you for all the info and tips, it is all so very helpful. I am planning to start my own Travel Vlog. I do have a question. I am planning to buy a GoPro4 to use as my main source for videoing. I chose the Go Pro because of how versatile it is. Is the Go Pro in your opinion a good choice?

    • Mark Wiens

      5 years ago

      Hey Michael, you’re welcome, glad this post is helpful. It all depends on what types of videos you want to make and for what purpose. I’m personally not a huge GoPro fan because most of the shots are very wide (not close-ups) – which is good for landscapes but not for food, and the audio isn’t very good (but there are solutions). It is good if you want to just capture wide shots and especially actions and activities. Other options like some of the mirrorless cameras can be good options as well if you want more close-up shots.

    • Michael Rose

      5 years ago

      Thank you for the reply in regards to my Go Pro question. It was very helpful. I am now looking at a Mirrorless Camera in addition to the Go Pro. For me I think the combination of the two, will suit my needs very well. Thank you.

    Hi Mark, just discovered your blog and YT channel. Man, you do share a lot of great content, thank you so much. I have a YT channel (in Portuguese) and I’d like to start a new channel about food. I worked many years as a chef in UK and would love to start a street food channel. I’d be mainly vlogging in Portuguese showing all the food and culture. Not much travel apart from going to different markets and events. Do you think this idea could work? Still not sure if I should vlog in English or Portuguese. Street food in Brazil is picking up a lot, and it’d be great to show people there some new ideas, and London has plenty of that. Sorry for the long message. Thank you so much and happy travels!

    Really informative and admirable post Mark. Reading your post, I am sure many people would like to atleast give video a try next time they travel. Adding to what you have written, people may not always have video camera and some may not feel comfortable speaking infront of camera. In such cases, they can always use slideshow makers to convert travel pictures into videos. All it takes is pictures, music and text, and you’re done. Some of the slideshow makers I would recommend are; Masher, Picovico, and Magisto.
    These are online slideshow maker that can easily convert your pictures into video and make them way too interactive then still pictures. Hope the readers find it useful.
    Keep up the good work Mark.

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hi Sean, it really depends… I think if you’re trying to really build an audience, shorter videos in the 2 – 5 minute range are best, but if you have an existing audience, or if you have an idea for a video that will be incredibly engaging, a longer video is a great idea – because YouTube will favor a longer video if you have high engagement (it keep people on YouTube longer!).

      Hey Pericles, nice to meet you, and thank you for watching. At the end of the videos, I normally have a subscribe button, and that I edit into the video, and then annotate it. For filming, I will talk all filming my face, and then film separate clips which I will overlay when editing. Hope that makes sense, and all the best!

A lot attributed to following your example, we are 4 months now with a channel and website, and we have evolved to the niche that we want with a consistent biweekly video release that has come together.

    Your tips obviously work, your community keeps on growing to so big now! You are a trusted source because of your openness and approachability. Thanks for all the help and generosity in sharing, Mark!

    Hi Mark, I came across your, “25 Amazing Things To Do in Bangkok, Thailand” as my first video on my research for planing our family trip. Your video was really impressive, professional, fun, organized, insightful…so many great things about it to list. I must say your videos stand out and was so impressed with it that I felt I need to learn your formula for creating such amazing quality videos…and viola!….you put a blog for exactly another thing that I have been looking for. A simple formatted and duplicatable way to create amazing videos such as yours. Thank you sooooo much for all the great work that you are doing!! I leaned a ton form your video for our future vacation this year and was inspired to create my own videos…..thank to you. By the way I also purchased your e-book which is another outstanding creation!! Dude…kuddos to your awesome work and commitment to provide the best!!! Your freakn rock!! I’ll be in Bangkok in April or Dec for about a month…well starting there and then island hoping. If you are still out in Bangkok I would love to treat you to an all you can eat and pick your brain. Cheers!!

      Hi Dago, great to hear from you, thank you very much for the kind words, and I’m so happy to hear that my content has been useful. I’d love to see your videos in the future as well. I’m traveling occasionally, but let me know when the time gets closer, thank you!

    Hi Mark. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your videos. I watched the first one by accident because I was searching YouTube for Thai street food videos and came across one of yours instead. Since then I have watched dozens of others you’ve done, and I thoroughly enjoy them. First of all they look great production wise, and secondly I have learned a lot of things I never knew before from watching them. You are definitely the right person for the job, and I always chuckle and smile when I see you eat something you like as the expressions you have on your face are absolutely priceless. I always know whether you really like something just by watching your reaction after the first bite. I live in Canada but holiday quite a bit on Oahu and have seen all the tasty Hawaiian videos you have done. Who knows, maybe we can have coffee one day if you are ever on the island the same time as me. Until then keep up the great work Mark, I’m a definite fan of you and your excellent videos!! ( I may not be eating chicken intestines any time soon though!!)

    Regards,
    Neil

      Hi Neil, great to hear from you and I appreciate your words of encouragement. Big thank you for watching my videos and for your support. Yes, that would be wonderful to have a coffee or meal with you someday in Hawaii! Thanks again.

    Hi Mark,

    thanks for the share this information together I know it can be time consuming. This is good information for people starting out and looking to begin publishing and marketing. Keep up the good work. Perhaps we could collaborate sometime in the future if you are still in Thailand. I’m currently in Taiwan

    Hey man!

    Is wordpress a good place to start out blogging? Does the free version have enough space for pictures etc?

    Michael

    • Mark Wiens

      7 years ago

      Hey Michael, yes wordpress is great. But if you plan to take it seriously, I’d recommend you get your own domain and hosting, and then use wordpress on your own domain.

    Just let me add my voice to the rest and thank you for this excellent and comprehensive starters guide Mark. My main question was answered in the comments here as I wondered if you always travelled with a cameraman/woman. It seems you do?
    I never feel comfortable filming myself so I guess I need to team up with someone when on the road and needing to film.
    Is it still the case that you use a DSLR for most of your video work?
    I’d also be interested to know how much time you spend editing and publishing the average video – are you blogging in addition to this or is most of your effort now directed at video production (is this the most profitable way to go?)
    Thanks again and happy travels – hope to catch up with you again (perhaps at DIA 2014?)
    Andy

    • Mark Wiens

      Hi Andy, great to hear from you.

      Yes, I now have a wife, so she is my camera woman all the time if I’m in the shot. Yes, I’m still using a DSLR, but I’ve also added a Canon S110 to my kit for video shot that I don’t want to bring out the DSLR for – but the sound quality isn’t as good.

      As for editing, it all depends, but on just a 2 – 4 minute meal video, I spend about 1 – 2 hours editing it. I used to be MUCH slower, but the more I’ve done it, the more I’ve become faster and moved to editing on a system – for instance, all my titles are the same, so I now don’t need to spend 30 minutes deciding which font to use for titles. For longer videos like “top things to do in Bangkok” that took me about 3 days, almost non-stop to edit, I think.

      Yes, I’m also blogging a lot as well – I think blogging and videos go hand in hand. I think if you publish a video, you should try to have an article corresponding to it.

      Would love to meet you at DIA 2014!

    Hi Mark,

    First of all, congratulations on the new look of the site. It’s much more attractive now.
    Also, thanks a lot for this tutorial. You have been the first person that inspired me to do my own writing (www.sytexperience.com), and I’m hoping to start my Youtube videos on my first visit to Thailand in 2 weeks. Don’t worry, I won’t make you any competition. I’m aiming Portuguese speaking viewers.

    Keep up the good work.

    How many viewers or subscribers do you need on youtube to make some money? Can you give an idea how much is to be made on youtube?

    • Mark Wiens

      8 years ago

      Hey Paul, it all depends on how many ads you put on your videos, like just the overlay, or also the ad at the beginning of the video. As a reference, I was previously getting about 10,000 to 15,000 video views a day and making about $10 – $15 per day, but this was only including minimum ads on my videos. As for subscribers, well with a few thousand you can probably make a couple dollars a day. But in this online world, every few dollars adds up!

  • Christina Pfeiffer

    Great guide, Mark. Do you have any suggestions on how to grow subscribers quickly? Also, do you think the 500-word description really helps with SEO? Is it worth the time spent?

    • Mark Wiens

      8 years ago

      Hey Christina,

      Thank you for reading this guide. As for growing subscribers quickly, my suggestions would be to keep a video posting schedule, like new video every Weds and Sun at 8 pm, annotate each video with subscribe buttons, come right out and ask viewers to subscribe at the end of your videos, and then just keep publishing and promoting your videos.

      For the 500 words, yes I think it helps, but depending on which video. For instance, if one of your video titles has a decent search volume you’d want to take the time to write a good description. If it doesn’t, it may not be worth your time.

      All the best!

    Thanks Mark!

    Yeah, regular posting requires a lot of content. You’ve been really good with upkeep, without a loss to quality. Doesn’t hurt you have an excellent camerawoman! ;). Been seeing a lot of folk doing vlog channels, which I think is easier for regularity.

    I was trying to do the keyword research after you and some bloggers mentioned it, but man, that SEO stuff is so tedious!

    • Mark Wiens

      8 years ago

      Hey Christine, yes a camerawoman is a huge help!!

  • Christine |GRRRL TRAVELER

    Awesome guide for those wanting to start videos on YouTube! Thanks for sharing, Mark! I’m glad you posted your drawbacks of the GoPro. Been wondering if that’s something I should invest in or not.

    So you suggest loading the keywords then? I thought YouTube didn’t like us using too many keywords but wanted it to be more targeted. Although if it works for you, I’d prefer to follow that. Your channel has a really successful following which i’m sure took time to build.

    Also, how long were you doing your videos before your traffic to really start rolling. I know the food niche is a specific niche, but just curious.

    • Mark Wiens

      8 years ago

      Thank you Christine! A GoPro definitely serves a good purpose, but all depending upon your type of video. Yes, keyword research and then optimizing for keywords – not overdoing it, but just ensuring that a video gets all the recognition it can for the words wanted. Also it’s a good idea to keyword research just to find the words that get searched for more frequently like “Thai food” or “food in Thailand.”

      I think it probably took 6 months to almost a year, of sticking to a strict video publishing schedule, to get to a point where I could really see some good growth and lots of new subscribers everyday.

    Great article Mark!
    We found it very helpful and informative with good, solid, practical advise.
    A piece of advise we might offer in return after watching part of the accompanying video, is to consider how many times “filler” words such as um, er, and….. are used, as experienced Toastmasters it is something we strive to eliminate from our speaking whether in person or on video.
    Love your focus on foods and cuisine, as early retirees enjoying our slow travel explorations we too love to try the local fare.

    • Mark Wiens

      Thank you, and also for the advice! Yes, I also noticed that I used way too many filler words. This was my first live webinar ever, so I was a bit nervous – and I’m hoping to get more practice in the future!
