    Basically, started off small uploading some tech videos. How I made huge viral videos though was usually when I encountered a problem myself and couldn't find a decent video that clearly explained how to do something. I'd make a video on this and boom instant hit views come flying in. Another good trick is to make video like tutorials that require the user to download files. Have them "double wrapped" in link sharing websites. Example on my most popular video, it has 200k+ views with the file having 100k+ downloads. YouTube was paying well for a while but now my earning are nearly non existent. Used to be earning about ?120 a month which is now about ?30 a month.

    I haven't really been uploading at all now as I haven't found a good enough niche to fill, but I've had other ventures (dropshipping on eBay made around 1K euro until I was seller banned). All you really need is to keep a lookout for what is popular and then make a very good video about it and the views will follow. Same principal with selling, see what is popular then around summer or xmas time dropship at a huge markup (I was buying a certain electronic for ?10 and selling for ?50 on eBay).

    Thought it would be cool to share my experience here and hopefully some people can learn from this vague explanation. A first post but hopefully a semi-useful one. I am nearly 19 now and this was over the course of a few years.

    Well done, you should be able to replicate this on different phones and target keywords for different phone and their software.

    Don't need to share your channel specially here. People are so smart here. They will be your competitor. By the way good luck for your earning. Keep it up.

    I have a very blackhat twist to this I use already, but I think it might kill the market completely. Risk vs Reward I guess.
