So what do the folks like myself do during the off season to keep their channel fresh ? I have considered taking this years content and making a " best of the year" video or something similar. Every evening I watch YouTube videos for ideas as well.
There's a video I found on YouTube yesterday about GoPro settings:I intent on riding throughout the winter but also intend on using the time when the weather ain't as favourable to put out previously recorded footage.
I don't do the garage type vids as most of the time I am still learning myself so who am I to preach.
Also the lighting in my garage doesn't work well with the gopro... Something to do with LED bulbs.
Will have a look at that later. Its something I've meant to look into. Thanks for the link.There's a video I found on YouTube yesterday about GoPro settings:
It's a little long but the guy goes into good detail about what settings to change and why.
As for "learning on film" - that stuff can be hilarious, so I try to record some of it. A mix of on and off-bike content to increase reach and engage existing subs, at least that's my opinion on why I do both.
Yeah, snow has us hemmed in.When you say off-season do you mean where you are you can't ride? Snow or something.
Why not go through 'things to do when the motorcycle is in the garage' series.
Could do one on prepping bike for winter storage,
another on motorcycle movies,
another on motorcycle forums you recommend or are a a member of,
another on things you are doing to yours over the break (perhaps you are fixing something or fitting a modification etc),
motorcycle books you've read / would recommend.
Get onboard amazon affiliate program so when you do videos on Motorcycle movies, books etc, you can have some affiliate links where you viewers can get them from.
(This is something I must do myself.)
You can work into such videos cross-promotion of any other media presence you have be it insta, faceache, etc.
Are you on any motorcycle forums?
See what current topics of discussion around the off-season area and take ideas from that.
Gosh I wish I had that backlog. I have this coming week's videos uploaded, tagged, thumbnailed, and scheduled - but past that there are a few short vids that are up on YT but not properly setup or scheduled yet, and I've got 9 videos in editing but only 1 close to finished. There's only so many hours in the day, and my kids are needy LOL.I have about two dozen motovlogs filmed and ready for editing, and according to my spreadsheet if I put out one per week I'll have content to use all the way until next April! I also plan to film some mod installation videos on my Goldwing next month so I'll probably have to do two videos per week for a month or two this winter just to get through my backlog so I can start filming new motovlogs next spring.
I did plan for this though, I actively filmed like crazy for the past few months while still only putting out one video per week in order to have content to use over the winter. I plan to do the same thing for next winter as it worked very well.
I have the opposite problem. I'm currently stuck working from home, which is in the middle of the East London suburbs and good half-hour ride to anywhere interesting. Yet my office is in central London, a bit of a busy ride, but my daily commute was over Tower Bridge and past great landmarks like the Tower of London. TBH work is crazy busy at the moment, rarely get much lunch break to even consider heading out to ride or record. By the evening, after being stuck at my home desk staring at a screen working all day, I just don't feel up to carrying on there editing footage.I think if I have to go back in the office it's going to be difficult for me to keep up content production, since right now I can take a lunch break & go record, or record after work but before the kids get home from daycare. I literally dread going back to work in my office. There's not a scenic way to get there.
