    Hey everyone,

    I have two channels on youtube and I'm looking for advice on the best things to do with them at this point. The first channel I have is a gaming related channel that I used to provide commentary and reactions to a popular online video game. I haven't posted a video in a couple months but I ended up having some good success relatively quickly making $35 total on adsense, 150 subs, and near 30k views to this day. That probably isn't much to some of your standards but I only uploaded 10 to 15 videos that took me a few minutes to make. It still receives ~50 views a day and is not limited to that exact game I uploaded videos about.

    So my first question is, what should I do with this channel to grow its income potential? I really lost the passion to make the same exact videos but I'm looking to keep it gaming related so that my subscriber base can grow.

    Secondly, I made a new channel last week with the thread in the making money section here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...834-method-500-day-adsense-stable-income.html

    If you haven't seen it, its based on promoting dash cam videos (or related) until you build a steady subscriber and viewer base that brings steady income. After spending about $30 on promoting I didn't really go far, 2,500 total views and 1 subscriber lol. I likely will but this channel on the backburner unless someone has a specific idea I feel like implementing.

    In all, I just don't want to waste the potential of a good channel when a solid passive income could be waiting around the corner. Thanks in advance for any responses!

    I would need to see both your channels before I could make a honest review of how you failed. Your $30 is nothing at all for testing, sorry. It would have been well spent if you just tried geo targeted views so you could attempt to trend for the day in that GEO. As for your diaster, the video was apparently not interesting enough to merit any more views, but your subscriber count is correct. Use socialblade and look at total monthly views to total monthly subscribers. Take the amount of subscribers and divide that by the amount of views, and you should get something like 0.03%. That means for your total views only 0.03% are going to subscribe to the video.

    Now I will go over some key blackhat essentials to help "speed" up the process. This requires money, so if you are broke then don't bother reading. First you want to buy views, subs, comments, likes, etc for the videos. Building up a high sub base first would help get people to click and sub more. It gives them the illusion that your videos are worth their time and patience when watching ads. Your content has to be high quality, if for video games that means animated shorts, hd gameplay videos and commentary, studio quality setup for sound, studio quality cam, professional setup with a backdrop or a talk show like room to showcase. Stuff like THAT will put you bars above every other little turd trying to video tape games and get paid for it.

    Apply for a real gaming network like Machinima or Curse or The Game Station. Machinima because the name brings people to subscribe easier, Curse because the pay is pretty high, or The Game Station because the pay is really good. Either of those 3.

    For your cam crash it would almost be the same thing. You can be like the Ray William Johnson of cam crashes, even making them funny or some twist to gain views.

    All you need is money and action now, and don't give up if it seems to be slow because it really is a process in order to get big returns on YouTube if you don't have the hook ups.
