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.
