    Hello BHW, i have lurked around this forum for a while now and gained a lot of valuable information from here, i think its my turn to give back.

    I am starting this thread to get advices and suggestions from the pros, share my experiences so far and along the journey, which can help starters and most importantly , to keep myself motivated.

    I am already 1.5 months into YouTube and have tried a few things and i guess i am close to figuring out what exactly works for my niche.
    I am currently running many YT account, 1 Adsense account (2008 approved) , and all my videos can be divided into 2 niches, one of which is sports and athletes and the other one i cannot disclose as it would be too obvious to guess. :)

    I am using iMovie to crop and modify videos , add background music / text etc. and monetising it with adsense. (I know a lot of people believe youtube networks pay higher CPM, but my experience with adsense has been better than the later.

    I DO NOT use any bots, since i feel like i could do much more without them and i am publishing quality content.
    I am targeting traffic through properly describing my content and using catchy phrases to describe the video title.

    I promote my videos using facebook groups such as ( xyz fan club) to get relevant people to watch my videos, who'll genuinely be interested in my content and have a higher chance of liking and sharing my video. [ This may / may not work for you, since you don't have a fan club for everything on facebook ]

    Here's the statistics of my main account ( that i have worked on for last 45 days). I have not put any major effort so far, so i'll try to increase my working hours on YT since i aim to achieve my target in the next 100 days. :)

    Well , its adsense , and my traffic is from the top countries ( US , Canada , UK ) so ...i don't think a better monetisation methoud would be there.

    1. We can use one Adsense account for multiple YT accounts without problems?
    2. Can you help suggest on how to generate ideas for video content that works as intended?

    Thanks for sharing your experience and insight.

    1. Yes, we can use the same adsense for multiple YT accounts, with no problems
    2. what i'd suggest is, find your interests and make videos around them, for example.. if you are a basketball fan, find good videos (easiest job in the world) around basketball and famous basketball players, use some video editing skills, and you are good to go. :)

    Thanks for your suggestion. By using other video materials and apply some editing to them, we wouldn't be considered violating copyright? That YT wouldn't ban my account?

    You would be considered violating copyright. Honestly, even 1 second of video footage or audio recording of anything "copyright" enforced can be used against you. It doesn't matter how you edit it. 99.999% of the time you will be fine though. I say such a large number because there's a bunch of YT videos out there with copyright floating around freely. HOWEVER, that percentage goes down if you use footage/audio from a notorious company. There's like probably 50 companies that are famous for having entire teams of people just go on YT everyday looking for copyright. And with those, you cannot win the strikes. Always research who owns the content. Usually the companies that are really bad are a few from gaming niche, a bunch from music niche, a few from movie niche, and a few from japanese anime niche.

    Thank you so much :)

    I do not use any music or sound which is copyright protected, and for the videos, i always give credit + edit it to an extent that that it makes it too hard to detect ( atleast that's what i like to think.) :p
