      I and everyone needs to know these kinds of things before stepping into anything if it be TheXvid a nine to five or whatever.
      It’s nice to know that people like you show us the dude that no one sees and helps us before Incase we fall.
      Thank you.

    I am so grateful for this video, because I want to be an influencer and I really want to know what it takes and this explained a lot.
    THANK YOU!!!!
    I am a youtuber and I do lack a lot of content because it does take so much to create videos and plus I do a lot other things as well. I really do like doing TheXvid and I want to keep doing it and just by seeing all of you and watching yall talk about it makes me want to push myself harder

    A social media influencer is someone who creates content for the purpose of a payday. They pick a topic and hope it sells.

    This is fascinating because before they were influencers, they were just regular people like you and me. And then all of a sudden you’re famous on the internet.

    I loved this video so much!!!!!! It is nice to hear what it is really like to be a TheXvidr. I have to admit that I have thought that it seemed so easy to do. Now that I have watched this and heard all the things that you and Remi have talked about on Pretty Basic, I now know that it is a hard job to do. Thank you for making this video and making people see how hard it really is.

    This is so encouraging. I am just starting out and this is something that I really needed to hear. My videos haven't taken that long to film or edit, but my video for this week has take four takes, five sets of batteries, and another hour of editing. I am still not happy with my end result, but I'm still uploading it because it is good enough. Maybe one day when I have more experience i will make a renewed version of it. Also I so relate to the not having the mic on, I do that all the time for my minecraft channel.

    Absolutely LOVED this video! I started TheXvid documenting a journey and became popular in a certain niche. It is hard when you have many talents you want to share with the world but are trying to grow as a channel at the same time. Do you believe in the beginning you need to stick to a niche that initially gained you some subscribers or is it safe to take a loss of views in the beginning and grow slower doing what it is you love to do? Thanks so much for this interestingly informative video!

    Guys I just paused the video for a second cause I just want to say HOW MUCH I can relate to this. I am literally just starting out my IG and I can tell you all you're saying is sooo true. I am trying to juggle posts and a 50 hour full time job and one picture takes me such a long time to take it's insane. Usually I will end up with an average of 100/250 pictures on my phone before picking a decent one and edit it to then post and it's so draining at times but at the same time I love taking the pictures and picking the outfits, but I feel you, it's hard af.

  • MRP Media Rebel Productions

    as a content creator across different social media, I can really relate to all of this. Ii'm not even monetized or have any form of real success on these platforms, but the work behind creating content is the real deal. great video. I may have to rethink if this is something I really want to do for the long term or not. I like to be a private person , but I think people want to see the face behind the personality. I think that's a big reason why people get so popular and can make it. the business side is scary tho. lots to learn.

    Good content but too many transitions and different angle points for filming. It’s kind of hard to watch visually because it becomes distracting.

    Girl, editing is the absolute worst. I dabbled a little in TheXvid and it is crazy how much editing goes into such a short video!
