    Hello everyone,

    After reading some success stories, and journey threads I decided to start my own.

    My skill set:
    Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop - my mane source of income now.
    Good knowledge in photography.
    Wordpress & some work with templates for it.

    After shooting a spec commercial and uploading it to youtube I earned my first $100 with Adsence, and that is where I decided to explore the field.

    I did my research here in 2014 and don't remember a thing, but today on a coffee brake I decided to revise the forum, and have a topic in mind that I want to explore through youtube videos.

    Prep:
    1 - Open a new youtube channel, since all the video are going to be done from scratch
    2 - Link it to my Absense
    3 - Make a Logo
    4 - Make a Header
    5 - Fill in info text

    Goal:
    A - Upload 2-3 videos a week
    B - Keep updating this post
    C - Learn more about youtube seo and use it.

    (Everything that I did I will describe in here.)

    Today is December 10, 2015 - and I start from scratch!

    Today is Day 2 of my Journey,

    First of all, thank you guys for the support, actually today I spend much more time working on the videos because of that!

    Here are the updates:

    1 - All the prep was finished:
    A - The Youtube channel is up and running
    B - The logo is done as well
    C - Same with the header for the channel
    D - The channel info text is there
    E - The youtube channel is on my old Gmail account so Adsense is from my second channel linked with this one

    2 - I bought an animation template for the first videos, and it took me almost half of the day to fix it because it was to short, and my video still is 1:45, but that is where I want to stay for now - under 2 minutes.

    3 - The video is done and to finish it I did this:
    A - Got an Idea yesterday
    B - Yesterday and today researched google for material
    C - Prepared super short text
    D - Looked through Royalty Free Music libraries and got my audio track
    E - Added logo in the beginning and the end of the video + a small version of it through out the video (dimmed)
    F - This time did not do any dialog, but am thinking about upgrading to it

    4 - On the weekends I have my regular work to finish and in two days will start working on a new video
    A - The Idea is already ready
    B - The template is done as well
    C - I need only to find the material and the song

    5 - Now I am about to upload the video, it is rendering, and while I'm doing it I will answer and ask some questions:
    A - Can I send this thread to the proper section? If yes - how?
    B - My plan per day:
    c - More generate more ideas for videos
    d - Upload 10 videos with in 3-4 weeks
    e - See how the views are doing and if needed buy some YouTube promotion

    Since now there is money involved am going to start a budget topic, I bough a template so now I'm at:

    6 - Budget:
    -$28

    Again thank you for the support,
    Now it is time to post the video, the rendering is done!

    After uploading one video yesterday, I was not satisfied and started working on new material first thing in the morning.
    So I started working first thing in the morning.

    Here are the updates:
    1 - Uploaded 2 more videos (Total of 4 now)
    2 - Made playlists and am grouping the videos
    3 - Updated the descriptions of all videos
    4 - Found materials for more videos
    5 - Did research on how to promote my channel

    Not wanting in on your niche, but out of curiosity... Are you making the videos of yourself discussing the topic/niche?
