One of the best things about being a vlogger is getting to meet your viewers in real life. Connecting with the people who support you the most is something special, and there are plenty of opportunities for you to make it happen.
Here’s how to connect with your viewers in real life.
1. Host local meetups.
Meetups allow you to meet your fans and allow them to meet each other. By arranging for everyone to gather in a public place, you can make it easy and safe to hang out with a large crowd of viewers. You can host meetups locally or wherever you travel. To learn how to plan a meetup for your viewers, check out this post.
Travel vlogger Evan Edinger enjoys hosting meetups when he visits new places so he can connect with fans all across the globe. In this vlog, he hosted a meetup for his viewers in New York City’s Central Park.
2. Buy a general admission ticket to a big YouTube convention.
Because there are so many successful YouTubers, not everyone can be made a featured creator at conventions such as VidCon and Summer In The City. However, you can easily purchase a general admission ticket and plan a few local meetups of your own. This is also a great way to network with other vloggers.
Many smaller creators get together and travel to YouTube conventions together. Ally Hardesty and her friends vlogged their adventures at Playlist Live in Orlando.
3. Attend major community events.
Invite your viewers to join you at major community events, such as parades and festivals. Decide on a certain time and place or tell them that you’ll be around. If you live in or around a big city, try attending one of their community events to meet even more viewers.
Because Irish vlogger Melanie Murphy makes a lot of videos celebrating her bisexuality, she held a contest for viewers who wanted to hang out with her at London Pride.
✨WANNA MEET ME AT @PrideInLondon?! And bring a friend?
WE MIGHT GET TO HANG OUT ????

4. Film videos in public places.
One of the best places to meet your viewers is simply out and about. Film videos out shopping, running errands, or exploring new places. If a viewer recognizes you, invite him or her to be a part of your video.
In her latest video, Mykie from Glam & Glore tried wearing eyebrow wigs in public. As part of the video, she found a few viewers and asked them what they thought of her new look.
Connecting with your viewers in real life is meaningful in a way online connections can’t replicate. To meet your viewers, attend local events, host meetups, and travel to conventions.
