I want to start off by saying I didn't really pay attention in English/Grammar class so excuse my sloppy writing. I'm making this thread to track my progress of becoming rich and famous youtuber. Maybe you can use my methods. My main goal in life is to make a lot of money. But i'm sure I'm not the first.. I've tried a lot of different things online to make money but nothing ever stuck. I always watch YouTubers and am amazed at how much money they have. So I want to be a youtuber. I've already started my channel too. I have 4000 subs. Its been 6 months. I have 14 videos The thing is... the videos I post are considered "controversial" and so I don't make money from them. But Im not worried because I know subscribers = money no matter how you put it. My plan to make MONEY is to send my subscribers to a survey website through my referral link. I currently have 27 referrals. I've gotten these in the last 4 or 5 days. (This is why I wanted to start tracking progress) The site gives 20% of what my referrals make. It eventually goes up to 30%. + Bonuses along the way Im not hiding the site or being sketchy about it in my videos. I make seem completely normal in conversation. I say I make money from the surveys to get the materials for my channel. For example say Im a makeup channel, I say I do the surveys to buy makeup. Then so in my description will say "Make Money for Makeup - httpllwww.boobZ.com" I've gotten 27 referrals just by adding a link to ONE of my videos that was ALREADY posted.The video is currently at 9,000 views and gains 350 a day. I'm going to be lowkey pushing the referral site to my subscribers over the new few weeks and then I will make a real video explaining it. The reason I'm waiting is because after 50 US referrals the site gives a $1 bonus after each referral after that. So once I hit 50 I will make the official video about the site so I can get a better check. Example title: 'HOW TO MAKE MONEY FOR MAKEUP' I'm expecting at least 100 referrals just from MY SUBSCRIBERS that see the video. AND THEN it will also gain referrals from it being searched 24/7. End goal is to be making enough money from the survey site to maintain my life and video life. I want to live YouTube lifestyle for a few years; it seems fun! I think I've explained everything thats happening right now. Feel free to ask questions! I am doing this to keep track of my progress but it could also help someone here. ps I added pictures because who doesn't love pictures??
