The notes that the girl – who is not so much – has more followers than Taylor Swift because since 2010 captivates adolescents with the diversity of their videos, which covers topics ranging from make-up to contingent, Like the most recent one in which it performs a competition to recognize Christmas songs with another vlogger… for more than 20 minutes! What are the reasons that lead to a vlogger? What are the tips for success? Accompany me.
The first thing is to segment the audience according to the language you are going to use. In the case of Zoella, she chose the adolescent public and, according to the same note mentioned above, she has done such a good job that she rubs shoulders with idols of the music of this segment as if she were part of them, without being a singer or actress. He has taken care of the form and has been concerned about the interests of the target audience.
