To this date, some of my videos already have 25k views and in total for all videos, I’ve had 100k views. I started my YouTube channel a year ago and been posted few other topics beside sewing, and the ones who work best are my sewing related videos. So, I’ve niched down my channel to be only about sewing for Indonesian audience. Until today, I haven’t monetized nor paid promotion on social media for my channel, I haven’t made money from Google Adsense as many youtubers do, but I can say I’ve gained credibility from people who just knew me and people who become interested to get to know me. I was also offered to talk in some events about crafts, but unfortunately I live not in the city they’re in.
People reaching out to me to other social media and told me how they really like my videos and especially the way I make tutorials, it’s easy to follow, well-structured and good quality production. Some also said that they’re inspired by my journey to become a fashion designer without going to fashion school. This is something money can’t buy!
I realized that I’ve been getting more comfortable to speak in front of camera, in my first videos, I was not myself, I followed how other Indonesian youtubers are, that’s why in my old youtube videos, the intros are a bit long, I thought that’s how I could connect to viewers. It’s totally not me, I’m more a straight-to-the-point person. Now I realized that it should not be about me, it should be about the viewers, what they want to know and how they want it to be served. And still I’ve found ways how to connect to the viewers to show my personality and story from other videos that’s not tutorials but still sewing related.
I hope this channel will keep growing as myself and career keep growing too! Thank you so much for people who’ve watched, subscribed, and reached out to me, some even still subscribed even though they don’t speak the language! Thank you so much for the support, my target for end of this year or early next year is to make a paid content on learning-teaching platforms like Udemy or Skillshare. And I’ll make them in English for international audience. This hopefully can be a source of passive income for me someday or at least I believe that it will help me to get credibility to my next secret project.
