Reasons Why You Should Start A YouTube Channel

Published

on

As individuals find themselves with a lot more time in their hands, more people are joining the online content creation bandwagon. There is a spike in activity in the space, ranging from podcasts and online motivational forums to fun, easy going conversations on every subject under the sun.

One platform many are gravitating to, and where several Kenyan creators have found success, is YouTube.

While the list of top YouTube channels in the country is dominated by news media brands and musical artistes, several local creators have managed to find relative success with their audiences and maintain a loyal fan-base.

Here are some of the reasons that people are choosing to become content creators on YouTube.

Make a living

More than a billion hours of video are watched on YouTube each day, generating billions of views. On average, people who log on to the platform watch more than one hour of video per day on their mobile devices or personal computers. This translates to more than 2 billion logged-in users per month.

Creators can leverage these views to make a livelihood through content they upload by monetizing their channels. This means that they’ll get paid for the eyeballs they are able to attract.

Global visibility and self expression

YouTube is available in many different localized versions in over 100 countries. This gives users a total of about 80 different languages to choose from. This gives you an opportunity to attract a wide pool of local and international viewers to your content.

No content restrictions

One can upload as many videos on YouTube as they want. Comparatively, YouTube has more video content than any other platform. There is also no restriction on video length. Estimates have shown that on YouTube, about 72 hours’ worth of video is uploaded to the site every minute.

Subject focus

First, you need to establish what your channel’s main goal and content type will be. For instance, if it’s a religious or fitness channel, it is important to maintain that niche as it will improve your optimization. It will also help to quickly define and attract your target audience, as well as keep them loyal.

Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told Kenyans.co.ke that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

“The US Embassy is aware of a significant increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since January 2021,” the Embassy said.

In a Health alert, the US said the practice of Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures remains limited.

The Tanzanian government has not released aggregate numbers on Covid-19 cases or deaths since April 2020.

“Healthcare facilities in Tanzania can become quickly overwhelmed in a healthcare crisis. Limited hospital capacity throughout Tanzania could result in life-threatening delays for emergency medical care,” US said.

The Department of State’s travel advisory level for Tanzania is Level 3.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
