18 tips to help you become an Online Video Star

Picking up from where Mashable went some days back, a WSJ article gives advice on how to be a start on online video sites such as Youtube. Much of the advice is based on the same themes that go in towards making a successful blogger.

Find out for yourself:

1. Getting in early helps build a better tentpole
2. Find a niche: For example, the Grammar Girl mixes a beautiful girl taking about grammar.
3. Word of mouth is important.
4. Work the virtual room: participate in discussion forums. The creators of the Lonelygirl show started planning comments on other videos under lonelygirl’s name before the show started.
5. Remix other people’s videos: the lonelygirl people do this often
6. Professional approach: For example, each 3 minute Lonelygirl video takes 10 hours to make. The Ask a Ninja guys spend upto 18 hours producing a 3-4 minute show.

Now, what makes a successful video?
Mashable did a story on it, listing at least 5 ways to be great online:

1. Learn to dance very, very well
2. Be pretty: Remember Amanda Congdon?
3. Act stupid in front of the camera
4. Learn to play the guitar really well
5. Create a meme: for example, people have made a hit out of taking a photo of self everyday and then aggregating it in a 60-second spot.

What kind of Video shows work online?
SimpleGuide has a nice roundup of successful video blogging, listing 7 proven video blogging styles:

1. Tutorials
2. Critiques on Popular TV shows, movies, music
3. Tour the Nation
4. Aggregate the best of other Video Blogs and add your commentary
5. The Daily show/Tonight show model: in 3-4 minutes
6. The Ask Prudence model: ask weird, outlandish questions
7. Cover live events.
