Want to create better videos? Have you ever thought about the importance of the sound of your youtube videos?
Here are few quick tips that will help you improve your voice quality and thus get more youtube views.
1) Keep your throat lubricated
If it is dry you will have hard time speaking and your voice will sound bad. I did some extensive research on this one and it turned out that watter is the worst and pineapple juice is the best thing you can drink.
2) Support your voice from the diaphragm
Can you speak loudly without yelling? A lot of people start yelling when they try to raise their tone, this is a side effect from bad speaking and breathing habits.
If you learn to speak trough your diaphragm your voice quality will improve dramatically!
To make sure that you are doing it correctly, start by placing your hand on your stomach and breathe in. While you are doing this you should notice that your stomach is getting bigger, if it is, you are breathing in your diaphragm, now start humming and exhale slowly and steadily, while you are doing this you should notice that your stomach is shrinking.
3) Breathe in trough the nose
If breathing trough the mouth was good for us we wouldn’t have noses. There are mechanisms in the nose that moisten the air that we inhale to prevent the vocal cords from drying up.
Inhaling air trough the mouth will dry your throat which will lead to lowered voice performance and more stress on the vocal cords.
4) Remove background noise
Microphones will exaggerate any background noise that they pick up. So if possible, make sure you don’t have any people talking in other rooms,loud computer fans running or airplanes flying over
5) Talk slowly and articulate
Don’t mumble! You can even intentionally exaggerative your lip movements to make sure that your are being clear. Also take pauses to give the people listening some time to reflect and absorb the thing you said.
6) Buy a better microphone
Most people use cheap $2 microphones that come with headphones or webcams. These microphones SUCK big time. If you are serious about your YouTube carier you need to consider investing in a better microphone. I did a good research on this. Here are 3 good microphones that you might want to consider:
Audio Technica – AT2020 - $91.94
