10 Years on Youtube – What I’ve Learned


Hey guys, Caleb here with DSLR Video Shooter. Believe it or not, I have been making videos on the internet and running DSLR Video Shooter for over 10 years. It’s crazy! Today, I want to reflect on a decade of things that I’ve learned when it comes to making videos, putting them on the internet, and running a business. So, let’s dive in.

Focus on Content, Not Gear

Stop focusing on gear and focus on content. While gear is important, at the end of the day, all you need is a decent camera, lens, tripod, and lighting equipment. Focus on gear that will make a significant difference in your videos.

Consistent Quality Content

The most important thing for making videos on YouTube is consistent quality content. It’s better to produce a good video every week rather than spending too much time perfecting one video a month.

Best Video Ideas First

Create your best video ideas first. Don’t push down the ideas that require more effort. Make your next video your best idea.

Ways to Stand Out

Find ways to stand out in your space. Embrace your personality, style, or focus to differentiate yourself from others.

Personality and Style

Your personality and style can help you stand out. Lean into what makes you unique and enjoyable to your audience.

Trying Something New

Don’t be afraid to try something new. You never know what might work well for you until you try it.

No Way to Game the System

There’s no magic way to manipulate algorithms or tags to promote your videos. Focus on quality content and audience growth instead.

Everything Changes

What works for your channel now may not work in the future. Adapt to changes and focus on consistent content.

Separate A-roll and B-roll Set

Have a dedicated set for A-roll and B-roll to speed up production and maintain consistency in your videos.

Post-Production Workflow

Create a clear post-production workflow and stick with it. Establishing a consistent process will help streamline your content creation.

Use Evernote for Idea Storage

Use a note-taking app like Evernote to capture video ideas anytime, anywhere. Build a library of ideas to keep your content fresh and creative.


In conclusion, after 10 years on YouTube, I’ve learned the importance of focusing on content, standing out, adapting to changes, and optimizing workflows. These lessons have helped me grow and succeed in the online video space. Remember to prioritize quality and consistency in your content creation journey.
