Not every video idea will work for every niche and that’s ok. Some ideas can be made into several videos, like FAQ’s video idea or creating a video series. This is where you can use your creative genius to see what would perform the best for your channel, and of course, finding a topic you enjoy creating a video around. Some people love cooking, so that might be a great topic for them. However, other people may not like cooking and doing a clothing try-on haul would be more fun, interesting, and creative for them and their audience.
