I really want to make the majority of my IM money from YouTube, and I've been trying to do this in dead end ways like PPD videos for cracks and fake album leaks, I just get banned eventually. I'm pretty experienced with video making, I can do PS4 videos, PC gaming, PC tutorials (I'm an IT Technician so I know how to do Windows tutorials), and I've also got an HD webcam and can do decent live videos. One thing I had in mind, was creating a cover channel for music, I'd be playing bass and electric guitar, maybe drums eventually. I can do pretty good covers, but I haven't had success getting views in the past. I'm wondering if I saved up enough money, could I purchase views/likes/subs over time as I upload quality videos, and sort of buy my way into an established channel that would start to make money? I've heard buying views isn't the best for this, but I've seen some video SEO services that sounded promising, so I wouldn't be opposed to investing in one of those. Right now, I can make up to $100 or more per day from freelance writing, and I'd like to save up some money to invest in a YouTube channel. Any suggestions or help would really be appreciated. Thanks!
