How long did it take to grow the channel to 1000 subscribers?
It took me about six weeks to reach 1,000 subscribers.
What gear do you use?
Having just moved, I'm in the process of equipping my studio. You don't want to feature my setup, I assure you.
Where do you get inspired to create new content?
Every day, I work with Notion users of all stripes while keeping active in online communities. From those engagements, I identify common needs and questions that inform my content.
Meanwhile, I closely follow product updates, for which I publish explanatory content as quickly as possible.
Finally, I publish guides to my templates as public videos, which allows that to serve multiple purposes.
What was your biggest lesson learned from creating videos?
Automate and otherwise streamline your production process, where you can create videos quickly while retaining quality. Here are a few ways to do so:
- Maintain a collection of reusable visuals, including thumbnails, intros, outros and recurring content.
- Duplicate-and-update where possible, including projects in your editing software, video descriptions, and your YouTube end screen.
- Avoid scripting and overly producing your videos. Instead, treat them like a live, candid presentation. It may not seem as polished, but it will be more personal, thus establishing rapport with the viewer.
- Keep an eye on [new AI](Type Studio) for editing, transcribing, and other functions. Product Hunt is a great place to find them.
