    My goal right now is to build a few channels to generate a passive $500 - $1,000 a month with adsense. I think I roughly need to be hitting about 500k - 1m monthly views to do that. To anyone already at that point, what did you do? Is there anyone here that launched a successful channel in 2017?

    Good luck on that journey. This is my goal currently too although I am just starting.

    I think with 1m monthly views you should get pretty much 1k dollars

    I have friends that drop videos everyday on youtube. They have 18k subscribers. And make between $800 and $3500 amount. The key is to drop videos about what you know. You will start to see your subscribers rise.

    Well timing is really not a factor here as there are some channel which took 3-4 years to rise while some got hike on few months only.
    All you should focus is on producing quality content. I have a channel which I started working properly a year back and have already gained 20k subscribers and growing good.

    If your business is just starting out, the top three things I suggest are,

    - Viewers will forgive bad video but won't forgive bad audio, if they cant hear you,they won't watch.
    - Upload several videos but leave them unlisted. This way you can have a play with text, thumbnails, end-screens, descriptions etc without customers seeing anything. When you are ready to go live, having multiple videos also shows that this is not an "once off experiment".
    - Think carefully about Playlists (think of them as TV channels). Will you have every video in one location or put videos into their own Playlist? eg., you might want to have company news in one and product reviews in another or How To Guides in yet another. It gives your YouTube channel some structure.
