  1. These are excellent tips! I’ve been debating whether or not I want to start doing the whole YouTube marketing/vlogging thing, but I’m not really sure if I can meet the demands for the particular niche I have.

    Would you recommend starting YouTube videos as a beginner or would this be something for someone that has a more established audience or has been blogging for a while already?

    • Hi Aria,

      You can start a YouTube channel as a beginner. Embed each video you create into your posts. The videos will help draw traffic to both your channel and your website, and your website visitors will be drawn to your channel from your videos.  I don’t think you have to have an established audience to get started. You channel will help establish your audience. 

      Thanks so much for reading!
