Tell us about ASMR and your YouTube channel
How would you describe your ASMR channel?
My channel focuses on writing, stationary, unboxings (Kickstarters and TCG booster packs), and whispered reading videos.
Why did you get into ASMR?
I got into ASMR because I love being able to help people and find ASMR relaxing to both make and experience.
Your favourite types of ASMR?
My favourite types of ASMR to make are unboxings and writing videos.
How does ASMR make you feel?
ASMR makes me feel relaxed and calm.
Do you still watch ASMR Videos?
Yes, I watch ASMR videos all the time, for both inspiration and for my own relaxation in the evenings.
How often do you watch ASMR? I watch ASMR a few times a week.
Your own biggest ASMR Triggers?
My own biggest triggers for ASMR are face touching/personal attention, brushing (camera and mic), and whispering.
Your favourite ASMR artist/s and why?
My favourite ASMRtists are Gibi ASMR, Silver Hare, Freds Voice, Vibe ASMR. I love the triggers that they do, and their content (especially their voices) are very relaxing to me.
What are the main benefits for viewers from watching your content?
The main benefits would be entertainment and relaxation, the same as (I hope) any other ASMR content.
What is the most enjoyable part of creating ASMR content?
The whole reason I wanted to focus on writing in the first place was I felt that was a niche that wasn’t being met as well elsewhere.
What is the hardest part of running a YouTube channel?
Finding content that is appealing to myself and my viewers all the time, on a regular schedule.
Do you read all the comments?
Yes, I always read all the comments and try to reply when I can.
Best tips for someone starting an ASMR YouTube channel.
My advice would be to just start with what you’ve got.
As viewers of my channel are well familiar with at this point, I’ve had a Blue Yeti since the start of my channel and this mic has served me well, but the mic and camera on your phone are a great place to start.
Making & Marketing an ASMR Video by Angellic Voice ASMR
How long does it take to record & edit one of your ASMR videos?
For most videos, it takes between 15 and 90 minutes to film a video, depending on the topic.
For editing, it will depend on the complexity of the video, but usually it takes between 1 to 4 hours to edit.
Which is your favourite piece of equipment for recording content?
My favourite piece of equipment has got to be my Blue Yeti. I love the sound
How do you research your ASMR content?
Generally, any research I do about a topic is either by looking within YouTube itself, to see what others have done in regards to a topic, and then if it is something like a roleplay,
I might do a bit of Googling to try to find a “general vibe” of how the situation plays out “normally”, both for realism and to look for ideas to incorporate into ASMR triggers.
What do you think is the most important factor of the YouTube algorithm?
I think that, while no idea may be “wholly original”, adding your own twist to a video is a huge part of why videos take off within YouTube.
How do you drive most of your traffic to the channel?
Honestly, I just passively advertise. I try to have my channel icon everywhere I can, whether that be on Discord, Twitter, etc.
And if someone asks about it, I tell them. I think that is where most of my traffic comes from, as well as just people finding my videos through YouTube searches.
I don’t do a lot of active advertisements for my channel. I’ve never wanted to be “big”, so I think that those who are interested in the channel will find my work.
Which social media channels do you use to market your content?
I guess you could say I “market” through Twitter and Discord. Like I said before, it’s mainly passive marketing; just seeing the icon of my channel to spark that conversation and/or that curiosity.
How do you see AI such as ChatGPT impacting ASMR in the future?
I have to say that I’m not a big supporter of AI, such as ChatGPT, myself.
That being said, I could definitely see creators using AI for things such as script or video idea creation (putting the bare-bones idea for a video into something like ChatGPT and working with… whatever comes out.)
Unless the landscape drastically changes somehow, I can’t see myself being interested in that kind of content, however (watching or creating it).
