In our 50th episode, Steffi welcomes a special guest: Ermin Hamidovic has joined OverTake as a content creator.
Raise your glasses, as we have something to celebrate: this is our 50th studio episode of Nitro Nights! It’s been almost one and a half years since our very first episode in our then newly built OverTake studio in Berlin. Our beloved Nitro Nights has seen quite a few changes since then.
Therefore it is a perfect time to introduce Ermin Hamidovic in our 50th episode as the latest face on OverTake, who will help us to get to the next level! So without further ado, here is the episode:
Turning the effects of the pandemic into something positive
Producing sim racing content for a living? What sounds like a dream to most of us, is essentially reality for Ermin. The audio engineer started to invest time in his YouTube channel in 2020 due to COVID-19 and quickly gathered a large following. This is not at all surprising, as the self-proclaimed king of clickbaits doesn’t just trick people into watching his content, but also backs-up his popularity with entertaining videos.
Ermin provides a huge variety of content: live streams, guides, hardware reviews, which makes him an ideal match for OverTake! But how did he achieve all this? Well, simply put he made use of the fact that the world came to a standstill in 2020 and that people would stay inside and watch YouTube videos. In the episode he also reveals that it’s grown more difficult to keep going and grinding content all the time.
Boost your sim racing channel to the next level!
One of the keys to success is the usage of clickbait titles, as Ermin is sad to report. No matter how great your content is, if people don’t click it, your video won’t be watched, as the algorithm will only recommend videos that perform to a certain level.
However, getting people to click your video isn’t the same as keeping up their interest. If you don’t put any effort into the latter, potential viewers will bail out before long. “They are two completely different things, trying to package and sell a video to somebody but also try to give them entertainment and information,” summarises the content expert. If you want to know more about boosting your YouTube channel’s performance, you have come to the right place!
If you haven’t clicked on that “Play” button yet, it’s really about time! What are you waiting for? Jump into right into episode number 50 of Nitro Nights… go!
