So this is my first journey but I am not new to youtube. Previous successes in IM bring me a decent daily income and I am only doing this to build a new channel and see if I can do it again. I have a good day job so IM is a hobby and not a job. What I am doing here is writing my journey down, inspiring myself to reach my small goals, and letting everyone see that this can be done. Journey will end when I end reach my daily earnings. Objective: Earn $10.00/day (300/month) for a consistent 2 weeks. Budget: $50.00 Stats I will base on: Youtube generally takes 3-4 days to fill in information so I will update you with Ranged(rough estimate) earnings (dont want to mess with youtube/google policies). Tools: Aged account (not required) Adsense monetization youtube keyword tool found here https://www.youtube.com/keyword_tool Starting point: (2 days ago) - Gathered information about keyword and competition. Keyword tool says 10k-15k Global monthly searches - Searched youtube for keyword competition - Results came in with less than 500000 results (wont tell you how much) But this to me is low competition for that many global searches - created a channel design and worked on verifying all youtube settings including creating a blogspot blog and verifying it with youtube channel - wrote a complete about page containing my keyword - uploaded 2 videos and tagged them with keyword and created a playlist containing that keyword - put one video up on reddit I will keep everyone posted on this journey with stats that I can share and with work done. I will use ONLY youtube stats as I dont trust adsense's TOS to approve me for showing anything. Thanks for the journey.
