Plumbing

It’s crazy to say this but yes, plumbers are scarce nowadays.

How often can you find a good plumber? It’s difficult, and even if you do find them, they either have signed up to too many customers, or they charge insane amount of fees just because they can do it.

If only there was a Youtuber dedicated to sharing such wisdom?

This is a great opportunity for those skilled with ‘nuts and bolts’ to demonstrate how it is done via Youtube.

How To Decorate Room

With plenty of time to spend at home due to the virus, why not start re-decorating that room which you’ve been holding off?

People enjoy seeing the process of creativity; and if you have the case for it, why not just share your passion for art of decorating.

How To Create Beautiful Home Garden With Limited Space

Landscaping is another idea for a Youtube channel during the outbreak.

Since most have plenty of time at home, now is the perfect for those with green thumbs to demonstrate how easy it is to grow own crops.

Provide alternative solution for those living in apartments with no garden too such as hydroponics etc.

Pet Videos

Who doesn’t love to watch videos of pets at home?

Since lockdown is still in effect (in some cities at least), now is the time you get to spend more time with your pets – so why not share that bonding session on Youtube?

Also, it doesn’t have to be the typical cats or dogs debate. It can be any animals; parrots, iguana etc.

Rare animals can be interesting to watch too!

Training/Workout At Home

When no one is allowed to go outside or to the gym, now is the best time to share variations of home workout routines for those looking to stay fit.

This is perfectly suited for fitness trainers (or models) to demonstrate ideas on how to make workouts at home fun.

Be creative in your videos, like “5 Ab Workout You Can Do On Bed” or “7 Leg Workout You Can Do In Living Room: Watching TV!” Be creative.

That’s not all. Why not expand towards healthy cooking too?!

Share healthy recipes for health conscious viewers, or high-protein recipes for fitness freaks too!

Cooking Recipes During Coronavirus

If you’re a chef or a foodie, starting a Youtube channel during the outbreak is perfect too.

Think about it, people can no longer dine outside, some cities don’t even allow food delivery companies to work.

People will certainly start to cook often at home – so why not share cooking recipes online.

Be interesting in your approach.

Create videos that encourage people to watch such as “How To Make Your Chicken Soup Tastes Better Using 5 Ingredients” or “3 Easy Kale Recipes You Can Do At Home.”

Make it simple for people to follow your instructions & try to use ingredients which are normally in household kitchen.

Remember there’s an outbreak – so don’t go fancy!

Self-Defense Channel

Watching the recent increase in crime rate made me to add this to the list.

If you look at some of the major cities, it’s mayhem. People get beaten up, looting, assaults – you name it.

I hate to say it, but this is the perfect opportunity for self-defense experts to step in and share their expertise on Youtube.

The general population will definitely start taking safety precautions which include arming themselves, travel in groups, install home security system etc.

So, why not talk about all these things. Give tips on the ‘best way to defend your home’, or ‘how to escape mob attack’ and so on. Get on it.

Couple’s Channel During Coronavirus

Quite a number of couples started complaining about living together under same roof during the outbreak.

The problem is not because they are getting bored of each other (I hope not), but they find it difficult to keep the relationship interesting due to the lack of interesting things to do at home.

If you happen to be one of the love gurus, go ahead and create videos on ‘how to make your relationship interesting during outbreak’.

Share with your audience on activities they can do at home to improve moods.

Survival Skills During Virus Outbreak

The current outbreak will get you to think twice about how fragile our society can become.

Many would start to think about surviving out there when laws are no longer applicable or that no one is going to come and help you when things go south.

Or even worse, no shops or services are available to operate as usual. These are concerns to whom survival specialists could address on their videos.

Again, this space is well-suited to be pursued by survivalist experts; to share experience and tips on survival skills.

Fixing Broken Home Appliances

Another content that would work is to provide instructions on how to fix broken home appliances.

Since no shops are open to fix broken appliances, why not create videos that instruct viewers step-by-step on fixing them.

People, in general, love to do it yourself whenever possible – so this is the perfect time for your channel to strive.
