How to Create a YouTube Web Series

Have a great idea for a TV show? Turn it into a YouTube web series! By creating a web series that runs like a TV show, you will attract a large audience. A lot of planning goes into creating a successful web series.

Here is how to get started creating a web series on YouTube.

1. Find a solid idea. 

Of course, the first step to creating any production is nailing down a strong idea. Make sure that what you want to produce has never been done before and can be carried on throughout multiple seasons.

2. Create an outline. 

Break down your series into events that can be turned into episodes. Use this guide to follow correct story structure that will engage viewers.

3. Write a script.

It’s important to write out every part of your series. Take the time to write multiple drafts of scripts in order to have a smooth experience filming later on.

4. Hire cast and crew. 

You will need help from others in order to create a successful web series. Find some actors and crew members that want to be involved in a new production.

5. Create trailers. 

Once you have begun filming, it is important to create trailers to start marketing the series. The trailers should be dramatic and engaging without giving away too much information.

6. Schedule air dates. 

After filming and marketing the series, determine when you will post each episode. Allow enough time to pass in between each episode so the audience gets excited for more.

7. Determine whether you will make another season. 

After posting the first season, take note of the amount of views that correlate with the series. Acknowledge viewer responses to determine whether or not there is a demand for another season.

Creating a web series is a lot of work, but can pay off in the end. Many popular TV shows began as a budget friendly web series. A YouTube web series is a great way to learn how to produce engaging content and show that you are capable of taking on large projects.
