    Alright, so I guess this is my first journey here, even though I have done multiple small journeys in the past without posting it on the forums.

    This journey is going to be about building a small but steady income from Adsense on youtube. My plan is the following:

    Niche: Tech
    Videos per day: 1-3, aim for an average of 2.
    Process: All unique videos. Takes about 90 minutes per day to produce videos.

    I have already created the channel with channel art, logo, intro/outro etc. I still have to improve the background art, and will do that in the upcoming days. The current stats for my channel is:

    Number of videos: 9
    Number of views: 1210
    Subs: 26
    Income: $1,23

    The first 6 videos have lower quality than the current ones, due to the fact that I redid the intro and outro from a purchased template. I will delete these as soon as the number of videos increase to around 50-100.

    My goals for the channel is:
    Number of videos: 200 within the first years
    Number of views: 100 000
    Subs: 1000
    Income: $10 per day

    Might consider buying some views if that would help my ranking. What do you guys recommend?

    Cheers guys!

    Cool journey bro, youtube is interesting to me but I wouldn't know where to start so this'll be interesting to watch. Good luck to you!

    What will be the format of your videos? You talking to the camera?

    Thank you!
    No talking at this moment. Might consider it in the future though. Not a native speaker, but my english is quite alright I think. I guess we'll see :)

    Thanks bro!

    Thanks bro! Im sorry to hear that. However, your $/views must be around $0,2 in that case which is quite low. What is your growth rate in views/subs?

    I mostly use after effects, and premiere. I would recomend Sony video vegas for windows users, unfortunately I'm on a mac.

    I've had some issues regarding music in some videos, which have had the edit to get around that. Do not think it will be a major issue.

    Haha, I will try not to. Too many journeys here in BHW ends too soon. Thanks for the luck wishes.

    Thanks mate :)

    Alright, time for some updates since yesterday. I have edited and scheduled three videos, one for tonight and two for tomorrow. Trying to stay ahead with uploads, so there won't be days without any videos if I feel unmotivated. Gonna try to edit a few more videos tonight so they can render over night. The stats for today is:

    Number of videos: 11
    Number of views: 1276
    Subs: 30
    Income: $1,26

    I have three instagram accounts that I've been building for a while. One in men style with around 32k real followers. I will try to use this account for some advertising. Will not overdo it though, don't want to kill the interaction with my audience as I am still building this account. I also have two accounts in the food niche with about 15k followers each. Unsure if I will be able to use these accounts to market my channel so might consider selling them. If anyone knows a place to do that, let me know.

    I also found a website I will use to send some free, high quality views to my videos. Will use this tool for some videos to get some momentum.

    I have subscribed.

    Since this is a tech niche, I recommend you to post your videos to Reddit. I guess it can work for your niche.

    I did not research on earning from youtube videos before. How do you earn money from youtube views? With adsense ads shown at the beginning of videos? If it is adsense, is CPC same with regular websites?

    Thanks for the tip. I have been posting quite a few videos to Reddit with various results. Do you recommend any specific sub-redit?

    Thank you sir!

    That alot mate!

    I really hope so!

    Update day 4:

    Number of videos: 15
    Number of views: 1445
    Subs: 36
    Income: $1.65 (+$1.84) = $3,49

    I also been starting to working with affiliate links with some videos. Will continue to update that as I start earning through them. Current affiliate earning is: $1.84.

    These stats are delayed by two days as some of you would know. Been spreading my videos on various forums an commenting on similar videos on youtube. It seems start my channel is starting to pick up some speed, even though it may be small right now.

    I don't have much experience. I don't know your specific niche. So my suggestion: the closest match to your niche.

    My question: How do you earn from youtube videos?

    Is Adsense on a different website or shown in the video? So far, I thought that it is shown in the video. :cool:
