You get the idea right?
If you are still confused, go to “Amazon.com” and search for “Top Gadgets under $5“.( Insert whatever price you want). You will get tons of ideas from there. Here’s one of the example.
As you can see, there are many categories on the left-hand side. Filter it out according to your likes.

For example:- You explain about Blockchain and then explain its various use cases in our society.
To gain insights into the latest technological trends there are many websites that you can stay updated with. Some of the websites that you should know to stay updated are:-
- su.org (Singularity University)
5. Future Technologies
Making a Youtube channel in this niche is to create content that emphasizes the future of our technology. Let me make this simple for you by taking some examples.
In this niche, you can create videos that tell something like
“This is how the future will look like in 2050” or “This Technology will revolutionize the world in the next 30 years” or “Top Future Transportation System Ideas That will blow your mind” or “This technology will disrupt the banking system forever“(Blockchain) or “The World in 2100”
Got the idea?
This is the type of content that can go viral in hours. It’s exciting too, isn’t it?
6. Movie/Tv Series Reaction Channels
Basically, this is the type of channel wherein you will just react to movie trailers, movie scenes, tv series trailers, tv episodes. Before making any reaction video you must take into consideration the popularity of that movie or tv series.
If that movie is not that popular and you just react to it and upload it on youtube, No one is going to watch it, right?
Let me clear this point by giving you one example.
As I am writing this piece, there is a movie called “Bohemian Rhapsody” which was and is very popular on Youtube in terms of reaction channels. By the time the film was released, many YouTubers started reacting to “Bohemian Rhapsody” and it quickly went viral.
One of the reaction video included “Elders React to Bohemian Rhapsody“.
Now, this generates curiosity among the users as to how the elders will react to this kind of movie as the song itself was from their generation.
Another Factor to consider while creating a reaction channel is your target country.
If you are doing it in English, then USA and India would be your target country! Why?
|Total English Speakers||Total Internet Users||Entertainment Market Industry|
|USA- 268M||India- 391M||Bollywood- 1000 Films per year|
|India- 125M||USA- 245M||Hollywood- 500 Films per year|
One of the best examples is this youtube channel:- Jaby Koay
This channel reacts to almost all Indian Movie Trailers and Indian Youtubers Video.
7. Reacting To Popular Youtubers
This is a very funny idea for your youtube channel but it works well. What happens here is Popular Youtubers make videos. The “Not So Popular and Beginners” make reaction videos on them and Again what happens is that if that popular Youtuber comes to know that someone is reacting to my video and uploading them on youtube, that YouTuber creates another video reacting to it.
Sounds Funny, Right?
Here’s one example of it:-
Have a look at the Title of the second video- Azzyland reacts to Pewdiepie reacting to Azzyland
That’s what I was trying to tell you above!
8. Reacting to Musically/Tik Tok Videos
