    A few months ago I bought a monetized channel for $300 and I can't earn a single cent with it...
    I didn't thought that youtube is such hard these days...
    Maybe I need to sell at least my channel somewhere if I can...?
    The problem is that nothing really works these days(not only youtube)...I lost a lot of time and money already for nothing...
    Yesterday I lost around 4-5 hours with editing a video.
    It was a HQ meme compilation video with robotic voice..
    Not worked at all...
    Like Clumsy,Text2Meme etc...They are monetized.I don't know what they did at beginning to grow...
    But as I know youtube these days do a lot of demonetization for reused content,robot voice etc...
    Someone is demonetized and others make 10k/ month with the same content...
    I even tried adwords video ads with this meme compilation but they rejected my ad because shocking content...There wasn't nothing shocking...The video was monetized...

    I always made hq videos and hq thumbnails and I used tubebudy for seo purpose.I tried at least 6-7 different niche but nothing worked...Even I tried my local language where is no competition at all..Only was 1 niche wich generated few hundred views/video..
    Clips with atractive girls...That was 100% copyright free...but was a lot of work to get the content...I wasted a few days with that niche too...
    The problem is that 80% of the videos wasn't eligble for monetization...But there wasn't nothing sexually suggestive at all...
    If there is a little decollete in the video then the video is immediately demonetized...Youtube is a joke these days...
    The best would be to burn this channel with blackhat ways for few thousends $ but I don't have any idea at all.. :|

    If you invest money in something don't quit, work your way.
    Everything get harder this days but you need to work hard to see results.
    It's normal to be hard, otherwise all of us will be rich.

    What i can suggest you is to forget about what you know until now.
    If you try few niches and non worked for you then is something wrong.
    Try new things, don't just try to replicate what others do to make money.


    Jump on trending topics and work your way.
    If you can do English voice overs you can jump on a lot of trending subjects.
    Trending topics can make your video go viral if you promote it well on Social Networks and bring some initial traffic.
    But never expect for your videos to get viral only if you just make good thumbnails.

    Good title, views and engagement is what matter the most.

    Yes that would be easier if I could make english voice over but my english is very bad..
    I use google translate to write this little text...
    I also tried ranking low comp keywords with panel views but failed...
    I had a big luck in 2016 with a blackhat video...I earned good money for a few months...Since then no matter how hard I try, I can't replicate that success...That was pure luck...
    Hard work pays off is not true at all...
    Only smart work and luck works...

    Try to do make eye catching video then it would rank to the top . Mostly nowadays reviewing tech stuff are trending , so try this niches to earn money but only if you are good in speaking English .

    Good luck !

    I got what you say.
    Hard work it not means only to work your ass off even if you see no end.
    It can mean to not give up and always try to find workaround ways to get job done.

    I don't know your situation, or if you can invest or not but i can give you one advice.

    If you already know how to edit, go on jobs websites/Facebook groups and post jobs that you are looking for long term collaboration with a native English speaker.
    You can find people to provide them a script and they will read it.
    I know someone that find a lady, over 50 years from UK that is more then happy to get some extra money just to read some scripts.
    This kind of people will not charge you for numbers of words like on fiver.
    It's like what i told you in first post, forget what you know and try new things.

    Good luck, and i keep my initial advice, don't stop.

    try different niches like the other guy said. Its best to try not to copy others on youtube, be inspired but dont copy them. do your own thing try things in your own different unique way, it will bring more success to you. and if you ever get stuck, pass the channel to me, i can make good use of it *wink* lol

    There was a guy here who made 30,000 usd in 1-2 months with blackhead removal compilations niche,before his channel was demonetized...
    There was a lot of views already in his first video...He only started the channel in february...As I see there is a lot of views already on the first video on the succesful chanels...
    I tested that niche too and I didn't get a single view...
    Based on this I think that there is a few blackhat tactics which starts a viral effect...But no one will tell this tricks...

    I think that they buy views for their channel immediately after its uploaded so that YouTube ranks the video in #2 or #3 for highly searched terms.

    Yes I dont think thats bought views...Need to be something else...
    Nowadays views are expensive and shit...1000 shit quality views for more then $2...Few days ago I bought 10k views for 1 niche but my video not moved a single position...but I recived the views very fast in few hours... Actually my video was in better positinon with 0 view when I uploaded...
    In the last months I wasted few hundreds $ on different panels but doesn't work nothing for me for ranking...I tested atleast 6-7 different panels and a lot of type of different views with a lot of bh niche...nothing works...
    Few years ago I ranked easily for a short period of time when I bought few thousends view...at that time we bought the views from seocleck...after that started the smm panels...
    Since then there was a lot of update on youtube and the competiton on bh niches became very big...
     
  13. You have to keep going and going cuz you never know when 1 of your videos is going to explode dear. If you take a look at the oldest videos of some YT gamers you'll see daily gaming uploads from the very beginning. One video goes viral eventually, people start subbing to your channel and this motivates you to keep on going.

    It sounds like your trying to do it organically and for that, it takes a SUPER long time for it to succeed. I understand your English is rough but english is a very easy language to learn. Keep at it, and if you need or want to monetize on it now there are lots of simple ways to start earning...even pennies.

    Some of my channels and sites started making $100 each...very slowly. Then you gotta keep building.

    It took me 5 years to figure out how to become profitable online and on YouTube. You just gotta keep learning. Losing money will teach you things. All those panels you wasted your money on...those are the people who are making money. So you've LEARNED how to make money selling views right? Lol, just saying...because that's all part of the game. If you lose money on something, figure out the business strategy behind how you lost money and learn from it. Put your own twist and give it a shot.

    Today my channel was demonetized because repetitive content..
    So I just lost $300 and a lot of time :D
    I deleted my previous videos...There was a few gameplay videos when I bought the channel, I put those in private mode...Maybe this was a mistake...?
    I didn't upload nothing in the last 1-2 weeks because of lack of ideas.
    Don't buy monetized youtube channel if you don't know waht you're doing...
    This was a good news after I lost $1000+ testing paid advertising in the last days :D
