    Hi everyone. :D

    I've got a old Youtube account which could be a goldmine. It was a account I made like 2 years ago. I came up with a method where I could upload 4 unique video's within 2 hours. It's in the music instruments tutorials niche. The only problem is that almost all my video's can't be monetized through adsense. This is because most of the tutorials include some kind of copyrighted music.

    I made €107 with AdSense since 2 years while I let go of uploading vids like 1,5 year ago. What happened? One of the video's went viral and got 220K views. You can imagine that my other video's started getting views as well and I started getting a lot of subscribers. So I'm thinking of uploading video's again but I would like to seek some advice on the best way to monetize YT without AdSense. I've did some research on BHW and came up with a few idea's. Just seeking advice on what would work best.

    - Build a website with my instrument tutorials and monetize through PPC, PPV or CPA?
    - Build an e-mail list and seek affiliate music products to promote?
    - Create (or outsource:p) an eBook and sell it?

    Anything I might be missing.. All advice is welcome! And what way would be the best way to start testing the waters?

    I got 28K views this month only. While I've been un-active for like 1,5 years.

    P.S I know I should be testing, testing and testing. I'm just seeking advice here.


    Here are some stats. It's in my native language though.

    1.website with an article and video per post, monetise with ad-sense and something like Revenue Hits also if you can, Amazon with a link in your article.
    2.Use your website and an email pop up to get subscribers
    3. not sure TBH that's your judgement really.

    advice for your channel would be making an outro with links to you other videos a big sub button and social networking sites like Facebook.

    And also make social networking account to share content and gain followers

    Well all my videos already got an outro with a big sub button. I figured that one out already. Thanks for the social media tip. Will start making some accounts to share my video's.

    About the website. For my particular videos it would be hard to write an article for each videopost. This would take a lot of time (while uploading a video can be done in 10 minutes). Perhaps its better to make a magazine style blog with only videos as posts and a commenting box where people can comment. Will be looking at using AdSense & Revenue Hits on my website. Thanks for that advice.

    The Amazon part that you're talking about would be the offering of affiliate products regarding my music instruments niche would that be right? In that case I could make a blog next to all the video posts where I indeed write articles but more in the lines of instrument reviewing and tips & tricks to learn play the instruments even faster.

    Thanks you got my mind rolling a bit. One last question that you might know the answer of: Should I first do research whether this niche is profitable or should I just jump in because of the traffic I already could get by YT?

    jump in, and you don't need to write an article just a title with 100+ word description
