What Type of Channel Should I Create?

Sitting in front of your tablet, notebook, smart TV/phone, you’ve most likely have absorbed numerous YouTube videos. Some of these might have been advertisements, some tutorials. You might have watched some unboxing videos, seen people applying makeup, enjoying some singer performing, or laughed over some reaction videos.

But which ones are the most popular? And if you were to start a YouTube channel, which of these popular video types should you go with?

Let’s look at your options.

Unboxing Video

It is perhaps the most unusual of all the YouTube videos, watching someone open a box and (with any luck) get some great things inside. Yet this video genre is very popular and really simple to create. All you need is an unopened box full of whatever and a camera placed in a position to video it all.

As long as you’re talking while the unboxing is happening, you should be able to make a video that people will like. Note that some unboxing videos have music instead of commentary. These usually are shorter.

Everybody Loves Time-Lapse Videos

One very easy way to make a video is to use a time-lapse camera. If you’re using a smartphone, then you can use a time-lapse app. These tools are easy to use and can create remarkable results, which is why these types of videos are so popular with creators and viewers.
