    I'd like to thank bosscomics for inspiring me to get off my butt (can't post link).

    The plan
    It's a simple plan really. Produce news videos, promote them through social media, get paid.

    What I've accomplished so far
    * Youtube channel is setup, verified and partnered.
    * First video has been created, uploaded and scheduled for release tomorrow morning.
    * Twitter account has been setup and connected to my youtube channel.

    I've decided to take things one step at a time and focus exclusively on building a Twitter following for this channel instead of branching out in every direction all at once. I'll expand onto other platforms later, probably with the help of a bot to make the management side of things a little easier.

    What you can expect from this journey
    Regular updates with lots of detail. Especially in the beginning when there's lots going on with setup, I'll be sharing things as they happen. Once things get into a groove this will probably settle into a weekly schedule.

    So on that note, as of today:

    Hello ladies and gents!

    Day 1 is over and I'm pleased with the results. Honestly I was not expecting to get as many views for my first video as I did. Engagement on Twitter is looking pretty good too. I didn't follow too many on twitter since it's a fresh account and I'm doing it manually of course which is a pain, but you gotta start somewhere!

    Good Luck with your journey mate.

    Just one small tip/Suggestion:

    Please join skype likes/subscription exchange groups, so that you get more views/likes/subscriptions on Youtube.

    I've always wondered how effective those exchanges are. What's your experience?

    Someone sent me a PM asking how I'm making my videos. It's not a secret or anything so I'll share it here for everyone.

    I'm creating 100% fresh and unique videos using a mic and recording software for the voiceover. Then I add in some royalty free background music and a related graphic and render it in Sony Vegas.

    UPDATE

    On bosscomics suggestion I've added Google+ to the mix. Today's video did pretty good, something to keep in mind if you want to run a channel like this is that it can be very hard to know what topic will strike a cord with your audience. Yesterday's video for example was for one of the most popular games in the world but it hardly got a view. While today's did much better. Moral is: Keep producing content every day and try not to worry about it, some will flop, others will go viral.

    I am working on a YouTube channel as well. I do a lot of promotion with my vids though.

    Reddit, especially for news, does well. Although you can't spam it as its a very strict site in terms of that

    I'm going to stick to promoting with social media not trying to rank any videos, in my experience SEO is too uncertain to focus on. If any videos do get ranked it will just be gravy.

    UPDATE

    My brand is continuing to grow on twitter and starting to get more engagement again. I've started sharing my content with certain Google+ communities and that's brought in 4 followers there as well. No earnings to speak of yet. Next update I'll share a summary of the first week of activity on February since the stats are delayed a few days.
