    Okay I got my first payment through Maker Studios [YouTube Partner] wich is around 7 dollars and a half [I don`t reall know cuz it got converted in euros] so 6.80 euros.

    Now I thought about Fiverr but I wanna hear your opinion guys. I`m doing two kind of videos on my YouTube channel. Music Covers wich give me the most money and a comedy show. So far I only used free services but as I got some money on my PayPal account I thought about spending on my YouTube channel so I can get even more exposure or something.

    I already looked at some services like promoting my video on their Facebook,Twitter pages or giving me for example 5000 real views. Now what I need from you guys is to tell me what should I get and from who cuz there are soooo many with good ratings but I know some stuff about YouTube including that view count doesen`t matter anymore instead is view retention. So help me. What should I do with 5 dollars to help my YouTube channel?

    Being honest you should make the decission by yourself, just in case something goes wrong or something does not convert the way you thought. This way you will be responsible for the decission you made either it goes good or wrong. If you already found way to make money, try to scale it up with another interesting videos or hire somebody else to make the videos for you for the money you already earned.

    I gotta tell u that one of my mistakes when I first started doing internet marketing was spending money in stuff that I was not sure if it would help me or not. Maybe I knew that it will help me but at the end it didnt. I am saying this because when someone tell you to buy and invest in something, tools, ebooks, services, watever.... in the most of the cases, there is a second intention for that advice.

    Long time ago I was thinking that money = more money, and thats somehow true tho. But if you dont know where to invest that money maybe u shouldnt invest. Keep it for your self and when u know what to invest in then thats the right time to do your investments. Only when you KNOW for sure thats the best option, NOT when someone tells you that.

    IMO this is my advice for you. However you got a good question, how use that money to help your youtube channel...well maybe if you are uploading videos for youtube the best option should be keep these 5 bucks and when you get 60 or something buy Mass Video Blaster so you can automate the process of uploading videos to youtube. I believe that will save you tons of time, and time = money right?

    Or maybe you can buy a fiverr gig and get some subscribers, that will make your channel looks better I guess...

    Good luck bud!

    Since you made only 7-8 dollars right now think about how much can you invest and what can you get for that money. If you spend 5 dollars and the effort will bring no results, you will have only 2-3 bucks left which means you will loose ~62-71 % of your earnings. This might be not encouraging to make more investments, but if you start investing once you have 50 dollars, the 5 bucks is like a 10% investment of your money, therefore eventual loss won't be too significant for your budget + you will have more options of investing to test different waters.

    I learnt myself investing is good once you can afford eventual loss so that it does not influence your approach for next investments.

    Thank you so much guys ! Helped me a lot. actually you opened my eyes. Right now it`s not the moment to invest as my videos are going pretty good with free services so far. When I`ll make more I`ll try invest in some gigs.

    Thanks a lot !

    There's one more hint from me, as the BHW proverb says not to keep all the eggs in one bucket, later when you will expand your business you can consider setting few more/multiple youtube accounts just in case.

    If you buy views on fiverr you can be taken your partner becuse they use vagex or other websites or maby bot/proxy so dont do that
