Food vlogs are gaining popularity as people nowadays prefer experimenting with their food and most of the things are learned online from these food vloggers.
Food vlogging can be divided into two groups: the vloggers who prepare recipes by themselves on camera and the others who show famous food joints around and their making process.
In our previous post, we discussed some famous travel vloggers and how to a successful travel vlogger. Now we are going to discuss steps to become a successful food vlogger, about few famous overseas food vloggers and famous Indian food vloggers
Steps to become a successful food Vlogger
Don’t be shy of the camera
Many good cooks are shy about facing the camera, so food vlogging is not their piece of cake. If you are determined to become a successful food vlogger then throw your shyness away; it’s not going to help you in your career as a vlogger.
Purchase the best equipment
Before starting your vlogging career, you should have the best equipment available, which also fits your budget also. Good camera with stabilization and tripod and mic are the first few things to purchase.
Know your skills
Knowing your skill is as important as anything for a food vlogger. It means if you are good with Indian food then stick to it. You may try some other variants once in a blue moon but remember your audience will be your niche related only so diversifying more than needed will annoy your audience.
If you are more into exploring foods of the different areas, you can experiment, like the local street food from India can give you more hits and likes than Nigeria’s street food. But that does not mean you should avoid exploring them but make sure you maintain the right balance of it.
As a food Vlogger, you have to be consistent about posting new vlogs. Set a pattern for you and stick to it. Like the post on every Saturday and Sunday, so you have whole weekdays to make and edit your videos.
It is just an example, you can set your routine as per your audience.
Be more descriptive
Nobody wants to see a mute video, so when showing food or recipes, be more descriptive. Describe the history, fun facts, price, and other details about food.
Add an intro
A study about video impression has shown that videos with a short intro do better than videos with no intro. So try to include a short intro if possible.
Collaborate with other Food vloggers
Reach out to other food vloggers from your niche and ask them for a joint video where both of you can feature. This will benefit both of you as you both have your audience base.
