    Hi everyone,
    I recently started a YouTube channel, which will be legit and with my original content. I will upload reviews about phones, app, games and so on.
    While I am slowly learning how to edit videos and such, I literally now nothing about YouTube and how it works.
    The only things I did were removing the 15 minutes limit and become a youtube partner via adsense.
    What else do I have to do? Is this AdWord useful?
    Are there any guides on how to become a bigger channel? I read something on the forum, but I would like something more detailed. I know a bit about ranking and so on.
    Plus, my only language is Italian, I can speak english too, so do you suggest I jump right away to english videos or simply start with italian ones?
    Any kind of help is greatly appreciated

    For the beginning, set up social media accounts on facebook, twitter,... ,link them all to your youtube channel and make sure to share your videos there.
    Make sure to regulary produce videos and dont forget to include "call to actions" in your videos like "Please subscribe to my channel to stay update" (or similar)

    If you have a good command of english and can speak it clearly without an annoying accent, jump right away into producing english videos because you may reach a larger audience then.
    If you do Italian videos it might be easier to rank your videos, but the audience you´ll reach is smaller.

    My accent is strongly "italian" and you can tell easily, but I guess that can't be helped. Anyway, thank you for your suggestion, I didn't use social media at all, I see now that's a rookie mistake.

    Honestly, I was thinking to do them both ita-eng. Would you suggest two separate channels?

    Another question: what ad should I allow? I check every single one of them!







    To All the guys who PM'd me:
    I appreciate you reaching out to help me, but unfortunately I have no money to spare right now!
