The Sunday Topic No.11 | Investing in YouTubers

October 11, 2015

The Sunday Topic:

I wanted to start a series that I’m going to be running for the whole year one that’s going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I’m going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be.

Investing In YouTubers
So what do I mean by this well the majority of the big YouTubers these days have brought something of their own out. Whether this is a book, beauty products, homeware or music for instance. I’m sure everyone who watches YouTube and supports someone has brought something from at least one YouTuber. It could be a poster from Jim Chapman, body spray from Zoella or a song from Troye Sivan. 

The Good
Obviously investing in YouTubers benefits them as they get money but most of all it supports them and shows them how much you love them. As well as this it enables you as a person to connect with others as you realise they love and watch the same people you do. Whether you can see this from their instagram profile or they just tweeted they brought the latest product from Zoella. 

I think that this is great in today’s society as we can then build friendships upon it. Many people build friendships upon books, films, TV shows and now the YouTubers that they watch. I think that this is pretty cool as once you build a friendship upon something like this you are likely to remain friends for a long time. I’ve made many friends through our common interest in a YouTuber and I’ve remained friends with them over the few years I’ve been on this whole internet world.

The Bad
I guess the only bad thing would be spending too much at once or buying something you would never use just because your favourite YouTuber brought it out. I always try to buy things within reason so for instance I’ll pick one or two of the products that I really want then purchase the others at a later date. My advice would be not to buy all of them if you really cannot afford them because you may struggle with finances later in the month. I’ve done this many times and then I think to myself did I really need that I could have spent that on something more practical like a school book or something.

My Thoughts
I think it’s great that they are able to create their own products or things as it shows how far we have come in the world. I love that various YouTubers have created different things so that there’s a variety for everyone. I love to see all of the new things that are coming out and I especially love to make wishlists on them. I think wishlists are a great thing to make as they encourage you for example if you make a wishlist and say every time I do all my homework before it’s due in I get to pick one thing off of it to buy. 

Will I Continue To Invest In YouTubers?
The answer is yes I will continue to invest in the YouTubers that I love but within reason. Just because they are bringing out new products I won’t be purchasing each and every one just a couple each time. Otherwise I will be broke and also I’ll have too many products/things I won’t know what to do with aha. I definitely still want to support all my favourite YouTubers and I am slowly working my way through the products and things that I already own so that I make sure to use them and not leave them sitting on the shelf.
