Think your predictions for Sunday’s games has the upper hand on other vloggers? Here are a few tips on how to make a YouTube channel for fans of the gridiron.
1. Know your history.
Football has a rich history, and many older fans love to reflect on the past. Having a few videos dedicated to classic games or legendary figures will help fans relive a time when their team had a winning season.
2. Don’t rely on stats.
Statistics are an important part of assessing different players in the NFL, but there is more to the game than a quarterback rating or the number of yards a running back gains in a game.
People are most interested in storytelling. Show viewers the arc of the game, build a narrative, and use football games to tell stories.
3. Discuss fantasy.
Fantasy Football is big business. There are people who don’t know much about football that play fantasy because they were roped in at work and didn’t want to feel left out.
Create your own fantasy team. Be sure to discuss your team, as well as how certain games play a role with the teams of viewers.
Having a YouTube channel dedicated to the biggest sport in the U.S. is a great way to live out a dream of endless commentary. Root for your team, but keep viewers around the country engaged by discussing their teams. Stay informed and be charismatic, and there may be a new hire for the NFL Network in the coming years.
