How to Make a Popular Video Series

A YouTube video series can turn a viral video into a steady stream of hits. Follow these tips to make a popular video series of your own.

1. Cater to a niche interest.

Rosanna Pansino’s “Nerdy Nummies” videos get hundreds of thousands of views within a few hours of being uploaded. One of the reasons that Rosanna’s videos are so popular is that she caters to a specific, niche interest. Particularly, she makes baking videos for those who are into sci-fi, video games, superheroes, etc.

Like “Nerdy Nummies,” your video series can cater to a specific audience. To choose a topic, ask yourself what you love, what you’re good at, and how you can combine the two.

2. When a video becomes unexpectedly popular, jump on it.

When Bunny Meyer couldn’t find her curlers, she never expected that her next choice would create a viral hit. Because the product that she was testing required the misplaced curlers, Bunny simply pinned marshmallows into her hair. The stunt was soon followed by a Teen Vogue online article and a second episode of “Can It Curl?” featuring Cheetos.

3. Create a web show.

If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own TV show, then a web series is the perfect option for you. Scripted dramas such as Blue or dark comedies such as The Actress stand out amongst the many comedy or cover videos that YouTube has to offer.

Creating a video series is a great way to keep a steady stream of views. By catering to a niche audience, jumping on an unexpectedly popular video, or creating a web show, then you, too, can start a popular video series.
