    Hi all,

    I've been a long time creeper but hadn't posted yet since I didn't have anything to share in all honesty.
    Making money online, for me, was a hard journey.. it took me a few months of discovering and finding out what works and what doesn't. But finally, focussing on the YouTube platform, I managed to burst through.

    It started out slowly for the first 2-3 days at 2-3 Euro's a day but went up quite fast (in a matter of days) to the 20s and 30s. Since then I've been steadily increasing (having made 2 more YT channels on different topics). Note that I only make money through the adsense on the account and provide no links to affiliate products, etc. I upload roughly 3 video's a day, every 8 hours one goes online.

    I can give proof of this if needed but I just wanted to share it in general. I'm not quite looking to share my strategy but let's say it's social media heavy. However I don't pay for views, don't pay for shares, don't pay for social media activity, etc. Everything I do is done by hand and doesn't require me to pay for anything. Oh well, here's one tip for ya: I love reddit and quality content.

    I'm now looking if I can get into a few extra ventures on the side (I'm thinking actual websites in different niches) and explode them the same way I've done to YouTube. I think it should be possible so I'm ordering domains today and will get to building the sites soon. I'll keep you guys posted how that venture turns out with updates every few days-week.

    Peace out!

    I made one hour long documentaries out of the ready available video's in the YouTube video editor. I have roughly 6 advertisement breaks per video and am currently sitting on 53 video's.

    Hi Darnez123, good job you are doing there. How do you do that? I have 48 videos and I earn around 0.5 dollars every month from all videos. Once you create the videos, do you post them in Reddit or which social media do you use? You can inbox me if you don't want to share it in public.

    I had a return of € 350+ in my first 30 days of uploading. It's grown since then.

    I'm currently working a few articles and a video and really want to get it done first.

    To everyone asking what I'm doing: I'll be making a grand tutorial (I think 3000+ words) on how to do it step-by-step within a month's time. I'll inform you guys personally when I post it here.

    I think that picking up niche that you are promoting is most important to get traction on your vids :) What's the view count per video as of now?

    Not sure who this is directed at, but I'll answer from my perspective.

    It really depends.. some video's (let's say roughly 80% of uploads) make up for just 50% of traffic all together while the other 20% of my uploads creates the other 50%. It really depends, no matter how hard I push something, some things just aren't hits or what people are happy to share. I'm now actually into researching what keeps people around.

    My viewtime is at 17 mins with an average video being 45 min so I think that is alright. My best video however has a 74% viewtime score though so they see 2-3 more ads or so. It's not as easy as x views to video = x money in my case.
