Since YouTube announced that we are giving more creators the opportunity to become partners, we have seen a flurry of creativity. We’ve asked some of our new partners to share their experiences of using our platform and resources to grow their audience, increase views and take their channel to new heights!
This month, we look at Caroline MiLi Artiss, a born and bred Londoner, who absolutely adores cooking. Her YouTube channel, Carolineartiss, is all about helping people all over the world to cook.
“Since making videos for my Youtube show so many wonderful things have happened in my life. None of this would have happened if I hadn’t put my videos here on Youtube”
Caroline started creating her YouTube videos because she always loved food and cooking and she wanted to teach as many people as she could how to cook.
“I started making my own cooking tutorials for Youtube because so many of my friends and family wanted my recipes”. Despite her lack of filming and editing abilities, her videos had immediately great response and now Caroline is a complete advocate of social media.
People are now contacting her directly for work. She has her own Malaysian Cookery show called “Simply Caroline” which is being aired in October 2012 and and a new web show called “Super Busy Chicks” that they film and produce themselves. She is also an Ambassador for Malaysian Kitchen! Not to mention that Caroline was recruited to be a contestant for a new reality TV cooking show in the USA called Chef Race which will be aired in October 2012 on BBC America.
Picturing the future, Caroline would like to keep her loyal fanbase satisfied by making fun and easy to follow cooking tutorials that inspire people all over the world how to cook. Her talent took her a long way and now she wants to keep building on that.
“The beauty of Youtube is that you don’t need any fancy equipment or a big budget to get started. In these harsh economic times it’s getting harder and harder for people to get a good start in life. Youtube is a fantastic platform to get yourself and your business talked about. All it takes is fresh ideas. Using Youtube has brought so many exciting new opportunities my way and I would encourage anyone with a special talent or useful information that they want to share to get filming and uploading videos”.
