Plumbing

It’s crazy to say this but yes, plumbers are scarce nowadays.

How often can you find a good plumber? It’s difficult, and even if you do find them, they either have signed up to too many customers, or they charge insane amount of fees just because they can do it.

If only there was a Youtuber dedicated to sharing such wisdom?

This is a great opportunity for those skilled with ‘nuts and bolts’ to demonstrate how it is done via Youtube.

How To Decorate Room

With plenty of time to spend at home due to the virus, why not start re-decorating that room which you’ve been holding off?

People enjoy seeing the process of creativity; and if you have the case for it, why not just share your passion for art of decorating.

How To Create Beautiful Home Garden With Limited Space

Landscaping is another idea for a Youtube channel during the outbreak.

Since most have plenty of time at home, now is the perfect for those with green thumbs to demonstrate how easy it is to grow own crops.

Provide alternative solution for those living in apartments with no garden too such as hydroponics etc.

Pet Videos

Who doesn’t love to watch videos of pets at home?

Since lockdown is still in effect (in some cities at least), now is the time you get to spend more time with your pets – so why not share that bonding session on Youtube?

Also, it doesn’t have to be the typical cats or dogs debate. It can be any animals; parrots, iguana etc.

Rare animals can be interesting to watch too!

Training/Workout At Home

When no one is allowed to go outside or to the gym, now is the best time to share variations of home workout routines for those looking to stay fit.

This is perfectly suited for fitness trainers (or models) to demonstrate ideas on how to make workouts at home fun.

Be creative in your videos, like “5 Ab Workout You Can Do On Bed” or “7 Leg Workout You Can Do In Living Room: Watching TV!” Be creative.

That’s not all. Why not expand towards healthy cooking too?!

Share healthy recipes for health conscious viewers, or high-protein recipes for fitness freaks too!

Cooking Recipes During Coronavirus

If you’re a chef or a foodie, starting a Youtube channel during the outbreak is perfect too.

Think about it, people can no longer dine outside, some cities don’t even allow food delivery companies to work.

People will certainly start to cook often at home – so why not share cooking recipes online.

Be interesting in your approach.

Create videos that encourage people to watch such as “How To Make Your Chicken Soup Tastes Better Using 5 Ingredients” or “3 Easy Kale Recipes You Can Do At Home.”

Make it simple for people to follow your instructions & try to use ingredients which are normally in household kitchen.

Remember there’s an outbreak – so don’t go fancy!

Self-Defense Channel

Watching the recent increase in crime rate made me to add this to the list.

If you look at some of the major cities, it’s mayhem. People get beaten up, looting, assaults – you name it.

I hate to say it, but this is the perfect opportunity for self-defense experts to step in and share their expertise on Youtube.

The general population will definitely start taking safety precautions which include arming themselves, travel in groups, install home security system etc.

So, why not talk about all these things. Give tips on the ‘best way to defend your home’, or ‘how to escape mob attack’ and so on. Get on it.

Couple’s Channel During Coronavirus

Quite a number of couples started complaining about living together under same roof during the outbreak.

The problem is not because they are getting bored of each other (I hope not), but they find it difficult to keep the relationship interesting due to the lack of interesting things to do at home.

If you happen to be one of the love gurus, go ahead and create videos on ‘how to make your relationship interesting during outbreak’.

Share with your audience on activities they can do at home to improve moods.

Survival Skills During Virus Outbreak

The current outbreak will get you to think twice about how fragile our society can become.

Many would start to think about surviving out there when laws are no longer applicable or that no one is going to come and help you when things go south.

Or even worse, no shops or services are available to operate as usual. These are concerns to whom survival specialists could address on their videos.

Again, this space is well-suited to be pursued by survivalist experts; to share experience and tips on survival skills.

Fixing Broken Home Appliances

Another content that would work is to provide instructions on how to fix broken home appliances.

Since no shops are open to fix broken appliances, why not create videos that instruct viewers step-by-step on fixing them.

People, in general, love to do it yourself whenever possible – so this is the perfect time for your channel to strive.

How To Get 4000 Hours of Watch Time on YouTube in 2020

MAKE MORE VIDEOS

The more videos you have on YouTube the more videos your audience can watch. It is much easier to stack 4000 hours of watch time if you have 100+ videos for a new subscriber to binge watch, rather than just 5–10 videos on the channel.

MAKE VIDEOS LONGER

You do not need to stretch a 2–3 video into a 30minute snore, but if you can extend a video, add more value within what you are offering, then your audience will watch for longer and help get you the watch time you need.

Increase Watch Time on YouTube with Playlist Series

4000 Hours of Watch Time can seem like a mountain to climb but if you make series content that links to each other and lends itself to binge watching, then you have set the trap you need to trigger this watch time hack in 2019. Series playlists auto suggest the next video in the playlists, can auto play the content and passively builds channel watch time. Pick a topic, break it down into 5–6 videos and really deep dive into the content. Why make a rushed video that is 20–30 mins long, when you can make 5–6 very detailed 10 min tutorials or documentary on a topic that explains it better and demands more engagement.

Live Streams for fast Watch Time on YouTube

If you need watch time fast and your audience is engaged, why not live stream? Live-streaming is a great way to make quick less edited content that invites participation. Pop online with your favourite game or a live Q&A and watch your subscribers pop in for a chat. If you stream for an hours and have 30 people watch you, that’s 30+ hours toward your 4000 hours of watch time goal you need to apply for that YouTube Partnership Program in 2019.

Update Your Keywords Every Month

Trending keywords most often have its own time limit. Today, those keywords can become highly searched, but weeks (or months) later, it may dropped its rankings – or new subtopics have taken over in terms of relevancy. In order for your videos to remain relevant, it’s best to always pay attention to latest trend related to your keywords once every few weeks.

To find which keywords work (and do not work), go to Youtube Studio, click on Analytics, go to ‘Reach’ tab – scroll down till you find ‘Traffic source: YouTube search’. Click on it and Youtube will show keywords that are popular and otherwise. Take the info, and use these keywords when updating your videos.

Leave Links On Your Social Media

Obviously, social media is crucial to attract your audience from multiple platforms. I’d recommend to not only post links on your feed, but to also leave links to your latest Youtube video on your profile.

Secrets To Financial Freedom

You work very hard. Day in. Day out.

Yet, you could not yield the results you want – which is to achieve financial freedom.

Today, I’m gonna share with you the secrets to financial freedom.

Create Your Networth Target

Creating a budget never really makes sense to me in the first place.

I went through many online material that talks about budgeting & yet, they continue talking about cutting spending & never really got to the core of budgeting.

Whilst it is a no-brainer to cut down spending, I was clueless as to how much is considered a good budget.

I was directionless.

Then I discovered how important net-worth is and how helpful it is when it comes to creating a budget.

Basically, you need to come up with a targeted net-worth & how long you’d think it requires to reach that target.

Once you have a target, all you need now is to reverse engineer that figure into tangible numbers using simple math – giving you an idea how much you need to save every month and so on.

In a nutshell, let’s say you’re aiming to reach a networth of $100,000 in 3 years. This means you need to make $2777.77 every month.

This is where you decide where to cut your expenses or how much money are you short from achieving the figure. It all comes down to simple math.

Apply The 50/30/20 Rule In Budget

I’ve also talked about this rule.

For those who are not familiar, the 50/30/20 rule was introduced as guidelines to how much you should spend based on needs, wants & savings

Although this is a good place to start, I believe there should be some tweaks depending on where you are today.

In short, I believe the rule should be re-introduced as 40/10/50 – where savings should be the priority, so you can add more money into investment later on.

If you want to know more about it, check out my other article where I discussed this in details.

Seek Wise Men/Women For Advise On Investment

This is the toughest topic to talk to you about.

Honestly speaking, there is no such thing as an investment that fits all.

Different investment has different settings, different mentality and so on – which can be challenging if you’re not used to the environment.

My experience tells me that the best person to talk to about investment are those whom you have personal relationship with – who have gone through the experience from becoming poor to wealthy.

Gaining their insight is valuable as it gives you first hand lessons, mistakes & failures that you can avoid in the future which is priceless.

Then, once you’re certain – you can go all in.

Improve Tax Awareness

You have no idea how much money you can save by starting to listen to your accountant.

Credited accountants are able to tell you exactly how and where to spend in order to get the best tax reliefs, or tax reductions.

Getting tax reliefs is always great – so maximize its uses.

If you run a company, it’s even better. You can gain more tax reliefs under company spending.

So go talk to a credited accountant now before that next tax declaration dateline.

My Final Two Cent

If you’re clueless as to where to begin, then, seek advice from wise men or women. Take note every single thing they share with you – even if you disagree with some of the ideas.

Always keep in mind, the best entrepreneur are the ones who are open-minded and do not have answer to every question.
