How Did I Successfully Rebrand

A question was cast upon me about rebranding my YouTube page and how do I promote? The truth is, the technique I use did not work overnight because the tool that I used has more seniority over YouTube.

I am a blogger before vlogger.

Both my YouTube and my blogs have the same age but I spent more time working on my writing than I did to create video contents throughout the years. This ensured that my blog traffic was much higher than my YouTube channel's but over the course of six months, I have been using the same tactics that I used on my blog for my YouTube channel and it works like a charm.

I was always told that I need a paid domain to make money blogging because if I use free sites like blogger, I wouldn't make anything and I cannot be an affiliate marketer. The truth is, there is some affiliate marketing group who do want to see a website with a domain and there are some who do not care for it. The people pushing you to purchase a domain are affiliate marketers who make a commission if you click their link to purchase a domain. There is a reason for everything.

I started returning to blogger the beginning of the month and it works just the same except I didn't have to do too much to insert ads. Google Adsense did it for me. Blogger is a Google product so just like YouTube, your AdSense automatically works with your site once you become approved.

If you're looking to get into free blogging, check out blogger and if you're looking for designs, here is a few sites that offer free designs with instructions on how to change up the looks.

How to Promote

So Adsense monetizes blogger or any blogs quicker than they monetize YouTube. The only catch is, your website needs to be at least 30 days old and have a good amount of writing or publications. It has to be AdSense ready. Once you have set up your blog, I would suggest making your video on YouTube and sharing it on your own website and properly SEO it to gain the attention it deserves.

I will be discussing more on how to link your blog to your YouTube to continue promoting because as I mentioned before, success does not happen overnight.

TakStar SGC-598 Review

After months of uploading videos to my YouTube channel, I notice that my audio is not up to par and since I live with a lot of people who sleep in very early (I am the only night owl), I have to whisper most nights. It was becoming aggravating especially since I have had some comments about how low my audio is. I had to postpone using my Nikon D5300 to create contents and settled for my laptop’s webcam where I can connect my Bluetooth headset to use as a microphone. The audio was better, but my video quality was looking crappy.

I knew I had to figure out a better way to get the video that I want to share and edit.
I received the Takstar SGC-598 and while I was shooting my video to do a review of the audio, I thought the audio was still not great because I reviewed my footage through my DSLR, so my initial reaction was to return it. Once I began editing the video on my laptop, I notice that my audio was clearer, and I was finally heard even when I was whispering. I am amazed especially since the shotgun microphone was very affordable.

I tried writing a great review on Amazon for the product but since I linked my review back to my YouTube channel, they rejected my post. They mentioned that it is not in the guideline so here is my review! I’ve linked the product above and if you want to see the difference in sound quality, check out my video below.

You can also find these products used in my video.
