HOW TO BE LIKE LILLY SINGH ON YOUTUBE
NEW YORK (AP) – Lilly Singh points out there are no people on YouTube anymore, because everyone is now a “brand.” Singh gets asked all the time how to build up a following on YouTube the way she did. She says part of her success is because when she started in 2010, no one was making YouTube videos as a career the way people do now. She says she spoke about things she cared about, so her advice is to prioritize a genuine point of view. Singh now hosts “A Little Late Night with Lilly Singh” on NBC, which resumes with new shows on Monday.
