    My tips.

    Technical

    • Don't walk around with a camera in your hand unless you have Stabilizer.
    • Don't do selfie shots while walking and talking. Get a tripod and stand still.
    • If you do use music, Please ensure your voice & Music volume control is the same!!
    • No long intro`s


    Content
    • Name the places and location you visit.
    • Say what you paid for camping/accommodation
    • When taking a trip, show planning/packing/driving/ unpacking and debrief of the trip. Fuel used, money spend etc... (sound stupid, but people want to know what stuff cost)
    • focus on the condition roads travelled,
    • Don't talk in a monotone voice.


    These are just some thing that i like when i view a local youtuber.

    Would you prefer a summary of the costs, conditions and overall experience of each camp at the end of the video or rather a mention or even focus on these elements during the video?

    I personally think that there is a big market for DIY mods and maintenance. Not everyone has the bucks to just pull into a 4x4 outfitter or dealership and swipe a card.

    More and more people are keeping their vehicles for longer and maintaining and servicing themselves as the dealers are becoming ridiculously priced.

    I’d like to see a bit more technical content.

    As much as there is a target audience for the overlanding game viewing channels, there seems to be so many of them.

    If traveling, stops along the way visiting interesting places that are not just bush/camp/overlanding related.

    Good luck with your endeavour

    Include a map showing the complete route that you are doing as well as maps of each segment as you are doing them.
    When you can visualize the route then the route to each destination just makes more sense

    Being an avid youtube viewer myself I have noticed that different regions have different interests and styles of channels. North America is more trail and short trip orientated, Australians like their longer touring trips to remote destinations far from civilization and African channels are mostly more nature and wildlife orientated-we do have the animals after all .

    My question is what themes most interests you? What type of content do you like to watch as a South African?

    Personally I watch the following genre of videos, in no particular order:

    1.) DIY
    2.) Golf
    3.) Everyting shooting, hunting and guns
    4.) Vehicle reviews, old and new.
    5.) Tech

    I actually feel there's a demand in the youtube market for some good, healthy educational but fun Afrikaans toddler/baby videos. Something like "Blippi" but in Afrikaans or with a South African context at least.

    I think I’d quite enjoy something along the lines of over landing on a shoestring budget.
    a small tent, clever ‘cheap’ food ideas, etc.
    seeing these big rigs with crazy kitted trailers etc really does nothing for me I must say.

    I agree...when i go camping and offroading it is mostly on a shoe string budget...and with a cheap offroader i work on myself...tip's and other odeties would be welcome...

    I don't find a link for Liam's page and don't know how to find his signature for the link...so a link to his channel would be great....
