Over the past year I’ve been on a quest; a quest for content, and it’s finally come to its end. I’ve known since I was young that I wanted to teach people, share ideas, and grow as a person while helping others to grow also. In this short post I’m going to share with you my plan for the future and what I’ve learned. I’ve tried different content types to find the right fit me. I’ve made gaming and coaching content for games, life hack videos, guides, educational videos, marketing videos, and more. None of it “hit the spot” as you might say, at least not for me. My future content will be on YouTube, LinkedIn, Medium, and my blog.
The best way to do things is to research before creating any of my videos on any of my channels. I didn’t want to be patient and take the time a while ago and instead decided that I wanted to make trial content for my channels. Some videos do amazing getting over 13,000 views and I had some videos do terribly only getting around 20 views. One was a simple solution to a very simple and widely sought after so that performed much better. The other was a vlog around National Taco Day. Unfortunately, I posted it after the holiday which means your video will get almost no exposure.
The Quest For Content
Before when I was putting out videos on YouTube daily in an attempt to go full time, I got burnt out. I was making Overwatch content which can be found on the Helmsie YouTube channel. I went back to the drawing board and began testing multiple different content types to see what I enjoyed most of all and what I felt that I could do without burn out. It wasn’t video games or at least not one single video game because they get too boring. I finally decided to settle on teaching a variety of different topics and courses on my channel.
The plan moving forward now that the quest for content has finished is to begin creating videos to share with people to help them. The topics will all be technology based and most will be software videos. A few examples that will be coming out soon are as follows:
- How to use Elementor for WordPress
- How to Install and Activate a WordPress Plugin
- What is the best Programming Language to learn?
- HTML Crash Course
- Make The Most of Your Marketing
- How to Form an LLC
- Building a WordPress Site for Your Business
- How to Make a Blog
There are many other videos, topics, and content that I’m considering right now. I may teach more programming languages more in depth rather than just the basics or I may teach more WordPress than I previously thought. It will all depend on what viewers enjoy watching and want more of.
The goal is to learn things for my business, Helms Media, and also share what I’m learning with you. I’m not a fan of college to any extent, in fact, I think college is quite useless for the majority of students who attend. This is my way of hopefully aiding those who want to learn but don’t want to spend $20,000 minimum along with four years of their lives on a piece of paper and minimal if not basic skills in their desired field.
I want to help those who want to help themselves to do what they love. If you want to build a business, then subscribe and learn how. Let’s say you want to become a software engineer, I’ll help you become one. Maybe you want to know how to market products, services, and brands, I’ll help you do it. These are the things that I have knowledge about and want to share with those who want to learn; thus, that’s the plan moving forward!
I’ll be posting a minimum of one video a week and one article a week. I’d like to do more; however, I have a lot of life changes going on soon that may prevent me from posting a lot. I will put out more than one video if I have time and become more comfortable with my schedule and limits!
