PewDiePie was born in Gothenburg, Sweden where he pursued a degree in industrial economics and technology management but dropped out to pursue a full-time YouTube career just a year after he created his YouTube account. His parents disagreed with his decision and did not support him financially so PewDiePie started working at a hot dog stand to fund his videos. In 2012, only one year after dropping out, PewDiePie reached 1 million subscribers on YouTube. On 15 August 2013 PewDiePie’s channel became the most subscribed channel on YouTube for the first time.

Vlogging has become incredibly popular over the last few years and YouTube is by far the most popular platform for uploading vlogs. To accommodate for this trend and to further develop YouTube as a platform for vloggers, YouTube wants to introduce a new dimension to watching ‘flat videos’. It’s called YouTube backstage.
When people want to get started on YouTube they usually wonder what camera their favorite YouTuber uses to record their videos. While this may be a good indication for sound and video quality you don’t have to buy the same equipment as them if you are just getting started. A lot of the famous YouTubers started with cheap point and shoot cameras or used their phone to record videos. What matters most is the content you produce. If you make entertaining videos, your viewers will enjoy it even it wasn’t shot on a $2000 dollar camera.

What is CPM CPM is an abbreviation of Cost Per Mille, also called cost per thousand (CPT). CPM and CPT are commonly used as a benchmarking metric in the advertising industry. CPM is often used for media with countable views such as advertisements bought on radio, TV, print or YouTube where advertisements can be purchased on the basis of showing the ad to 1000 viewers. YouTube creators are able to monetize their videos by placing ads before their video, during the video or placed next to the video on the page. Youtube creators do not have to worry about looking for advertisers and negotiating CPM rates because YouTube will do that for you. In turn YouTube keeps a percentage of what the advertisers pays which means CPM can differ from the amount the YouTuber earns. What is RPM and eCPM CPM is the cost that the advertiser pays.

50% of your video is audio! Sound plays a vital role in your youtube videos, but a lot of youtubers are only worrying about what camera they should use. While a high quality camera is important to create high quality videos, you will also need a good microphone for youtube. Although most youtubers have a camera with a built-in microphone we don’t recommend using the built-in microphone for youtube unless you have no other options. Built-in microphones usually record very shallow sound, pick up a lot of unwanted background noise (passing traffic, other people’s voice in public) and do not filter out wind noise. This can make it difficult to hear what you are saying for your viewers. Thats why we recommend buying a dedicated microphone for youtube if you are serious about producing high quality videos and growing your youtube channel. Types of Microphones What microphone you should get really depends on the type of videos you want to produce. Here are the five main types of microphones and what youtube videos they should be used for: Lapel/Lavalier microphone: This is a clip-on microphone that is often used on TV shows or interviews. The main advantages of this type of microphone is that […]
