    Hello you genius guys :D

    I had been trying to promote myself as a musician, but in this case it's a lot more difficult than promoting products or anything.

    Now I decided to make money by Youtube. I am going to use the money to buy music-featurings (some national famous musicians want like 1000-5000$ for a featuring. And it could increase my popularity extremely.

    So, i want to make money by Youtube.
    Now the question is, how to get it started.
    I maybe thought about doing some comic-series, which are fun. Similar to the annoying orange (i hope you know what this video is).

    How do i start? What do you recommend? Do you have any tricks?

    Just to know - i got no money to buy software.

    If i want, can you compose a letter and sing it about something? Doesnt need 4min, something like 30seconds ou 15. Give it as a service, people can pay you to you make a music to put into a comercial video or something.

    Like i have a online shop, i create a video and need someone to make a song and get all rights. If you compose good music, can be rap but not only voice, needs like a guitar or something and sounds good people will like it (like me). I can pay you to you compose a song about my business, a simple one, with back like guitar or something that sounds good...

    Well, i don't think i can do that.

    1. I am german. (so rapping on english would sound ridicilous)
    2. At the moment i got Problems with my beat-creation software.


    I want to concentrate on making money by something different than music now. I want to get like ... 34 Million views on one video. It is possible, as some Videos have these amount of views. When you got so many views, you can make like 250.000 dollars per year by being youtube partner. crazy eh? In addition you could sell shirts etc.

    What are the most important things for youtube promotion?

    If you are a decent musician, follow the tactics that the big musicians on YouTube exhibit. Let's take Tyler Ward as an example. His job as a musician is youtube. Him, and his band, do covers of popular songs when they are released. The video is a shortened version of the song they record, and he puts the full song on iTunes (it is easy to do this, but it will cost some money). I suggest starting out with just doing the covers and gaining a fan base. In addition, Tyler has an online t-shirt store. He just promotes his stuff in the description and annotations. It is worth a try.

    im a youtube partner so i get payed for all my views... i get about 50k views per video and i could work with you. this is what im thinking.

    you join my channel and make your wrap music/videos and send me them. i upload them and then send you 50% of the earnings ( 50k views = around 120 dollars so 60 dollars each)

    now in return i get the 50% cut and maybe you can let us your music in our videos. its hard finding good music thats free ^^

    all while this is happening your getting your starting money, and advertising your own channel at the end of each video to bring my subscribers (and yours from your website) to your channel in which i will help you become a partner by giving the support team a good word.

    if you want to talk more about this Message me ^^. i dunno im bord and i just had this idea
