    I am building a Youtube channel and It has been growing quickly.

    Recently I discovered that i could monetize my videos, after that I made 20 doll in that month and next one 50.

    Do you guys think it's a viable strategy to try to build the channel and eventually get a good amount of money? Or is the money from the ads never gonna be enough for let's say... at least pay basic bills.

    Also, what things can I do to promote channel views and other ways to get revenue from the channel?

    I say keep scaling your followers, etc... upload more and more videos and interact with your audience :)

    You can make a few hinder to thousands per month, with that you can pay your bills

    I mean I would not rely on one channel to pay all my bills. Remember, don't keep all your eggs in one basket. But yes, you can build enough of a presence and authority in your niche to make a decent income that you can live off of. Just be sure you do your research and split testing.

    Alright...soo depending on your quality of content...yes, you can.

    I am not sure what the rates of payment for Adsense are, but I think it is something like $2-4 per 1k views. Could be wrong, don't hold it to me. Another option is joining a Network to help drive more ads as well. Depending on your niche and exposure you could easily make some money each month. It comes down to if you can keep up consistently good videos while also promoting it with specific keywords.

    What kind of channel is it? Is it oversaturated already? I am in two different networks and have numerous contacts that make well over $1,000 a month from youtube...but they have over 100,000 subscribers.


    Let me know more details. Other ways you can monetize it all comes down to what exactly the channel is.

    You can definitely pay your bills with it or even make 5 figure income. I have seen guys posting their earning right here on this forum who are making 5 figure a month by yt monetisation

    I have scouted similar channels and the biggest ones have at most 5k suscribers, there is one that has over 100k but he doesnt do the same things as other channels. Thats why I'm afraid, I fear getting stuck as the other channels... I have a couple of videos with over 10k but my point is if i should i pursue it and if i should how do i break from that "standard" of 8k suscribers

    Let's call it a "star" channel. We post things about "stars" in our niche. How do you join a "network"

    Stick to one method like you are doing until you plateau, but never only rely on one income stream when
    it comes to any business and especially internet marketing. :)

    That's a hard lesson a lot of us learned.

    Of course you can. You can make way more than just enough to pay the bills. I'd say if you make high quality video content, what would be more of value to you would be your brand rather than the videos and advertising revenue. With your brand you could move onto a site that builds off of it then possibly into TV.

    You can make just enough to pay the bills, or you can push the limits and see how far it really takes you. Just a matter of what you want to get out of it.

    You are doing the right thing by picking one method and sticking to it. See how far you can go and scale it up.
    Its important to reinvest that cash though into other income streams. I have some personal friends who were
    banking hard on YT and then all of a sudden YT changed the game and they lost it all.

    Like I said you bank hard while you can and always think about the next path to take.

    I make $100 PM from YT. Started 4-5 months back. The best thing I like about YT videos is that if the topic is unique, you don't need any backlinks as google favours YT video is search results. For competitive topics, you need backlinks,views etc. to rank videos.
