I watched the episode. I personally don’t think you really need to make the quality of the video any more professional. It is a matter of whether that is the look you are going for. I think you can work with what you have. I have seen so many popular Youtube channels where the editing is not great. I heard you very well, I could see you very well, and I could see the images you displayed very well. I think it depends on how polished you want your Youtube channel to look. If you go for a rougher look, you don’t have to invest as much money and time, and your viewers will come to realize it is just the look of the show. In terms of criticism, I probably wouldn’t have mentioned anything about your editing ability. Those who noticed, noticed, but those who didn’t notice had some further attention drawn to it as a result. I thought it looked fine. Just my personal opinion.
I like the fact that you give people credit, in terms of the sources and images you used for information. It reflects that you will give credit where credit is due, and I think it will attract companies who will support you. I think it would be great to link to any and all sources in the description, so that anyone who wants further information can refer to the source from your video. For example, if you refer to a yoyonews.com article, link to it in the description. If you refer to a YoyoExpert store image, link to that product page on the site, and so on. I think I would actually take the credit a step further. I think that will be in your favor in forming relationships with companies.
I think the show will be beneficial to those who prefer video instead of reading or listening to yoyoradio to find out what’s going on. It provides some sound bites, in a short format, with visuals. I would agree that keeping the show within 12 minutes, and outlining the information you will cover at the beginning, would be a lot better. I don’t know how well it might catch on with yoyonews.com, YYE blog, Facebook, Instagram, yoyoradio and so on. But, I think if you enjoy it, and it catches on with a core audience, you’re doing something worthwhile.
I’m curious to see where it goes from here.
