  1. Your post is very in-detail, but you can’t truly make any profits out of your Youtube videos if you aren’t willing to promote them. You may use any ways you consider worthwhile, as long as you generate views, you will be able to cashout nice money in a matter of months!
    I’ve got some Youtube videos which currently stagnate at about 30,000 views each, and I’ve been able to make $100 in the first month of successfully uploading and fully promote them at the highest extent possible. But, I don’t truly have any time for it as my current full-time job generates me more money, although you could make more than me anyway. Overall, the AdSense concept is amazing and could make you rich if you were devoted. I don’t have abilities over skills, so I must hardly work in order to get more views now.

  2. I used to want to start a youtube channel for various things, but now that I see the pressure put on some youtubers to put out better stuff every week, i wouldn’t be able to handle it. it’s pretty awesome that some people can make a living off of it though!
