New YouTube Channel

Hi everyone my name is Matt and I sell RVs.
Ive been selling RVs for about a year now and have enjoyed very much.

Now I need your help.

I want to start a YouTube Channel where I will make video walk throughs of the RVs.
But I want to go a step above that and also make "how to" videos.
Like how to fix your awing
Or how to check the seals on your roof.
Then I want to take it to the next level and do product reviews on accessories.

So here is how I need your help.
1. Is there anything I am missing? Is there any topics that you would be interested in watching?

And

2. What would a good name for this YouTube channel be? I want it to be catchy or something.

Thanks so much!

That was way over the top. There are so many how to videos I don't know how you expect to be different. Are you allowed to self promote on the forum?

More power to you, but I think you are going to need to claim more than one year's experience in the field to have credibility. Furthermore on the how-to portion, RV sales people and technical expertise are usually considered oxy-morons. You may need to beef up your technical credentials to be taken seriously.

The site team has discussed this with Matt beforehand. As long as the information provided is purely informational for the benefit of our membership to help with their RV's, then there should be no problems.

Matt has agreed not to promote/advertise any dealers, solicit memberships, nor try to sell anything either directly or indirectly.... as that would violate the FRF mining policy.

Looks like you have some photography background or a photobug..? A well scripted walk-through is critical. Some folks like Josh's videos at Haylett's. He seems very thorough and throws in some humor as well. In looking for reviews in our RV search, I saw many videos where the salesperson verbally stumbled, misstated facts, and the videos did not flow well or seem rushed. Josh came across as researching the units completely and throwing in little known design aspects. If you can provide more detail than your peers and make the video entertaining, you can set yourself apart.

One thing I have noticed lacking in other sales videos; there are no details on available options. You seem to be good with iMovie, maybe throw in some static shots of fabric selections and a scrolling list of other options at the end of the segment. It seems like I went through many videos just to see what other options were available for special order.

Also a detailed (as in HD) roving video allows the potential buyer to pause and check out trim detail, design detail, etc and is extremely helpful. The videos I despised were the mono-toned computer generated speech from a set of still pictures.

Best of luck!

I believe a full feature on Awning Poles would be helpful! Being a Media person the edit and music is far superior to most. Keep up the quality Matt.

Thanks B and B! It was just a intro because I am starting to make the actual videos.
The FRF gave me a great idea that my one of my first videos will be to how to properly de-winterize your RV.

I've been around RVs for a long time and I won't pretend that I am a technician. But when I do make videos that are complicated I will have a RVIA mechanic on the show to assure the right information.
