    So, I have this youtube channel. It is a music promotion channel, I have about 100 videos and 50k subscribers. My videos are just songs that people send me, and i show to my subscribers. The channel has kind of died out since the new content id system, and dubstep kind of died too. (That is the genre of music I promoted) How can I milk the most $ out of this channel as possible? :cool:

    Change the genre and start over?
    Make cover songs and sell them?
    Sell your account?

    Wait hold that thought, https://www.youtube.com/user/PandoraMuslc

    This channel here has over 1,000,000 subscribers and it's not making money at all through adsense?

    I'm sure it does cause there's ads.

    (i'm not a youtube guy) correct me if i'm wrong

    You can't make and sell cover songs without a Mechanical License.

    There are plenty of people who want to own a youtube channel with subscribers so it try to sell it to someone who really want it. Be sure that this future owner is not hustler so you lose possible revenue.

    I bet you could sell the account with 50k subscribers to someone, if anything someone who just wants to pad their stats, why not scrape each persons subscriber account and create a huge email list, and sell the list...and the account

    I have like 25 million total views. It's a music promotion channel, people send me their songs. Everything is legit. Subs are loyal. How much could I get for something like this?

    Are you a YouTube partner? Can you monetize your channel? Add Adsense or something like it. But if your subscribers are only virtual ones that is bots or click farmers from Indonesia I take it that you cannot earn much on it. Also, try selling it, maybe someone is interested, but if you still want to keep it and make your own money it's time to advertise it yourself. Share the videos on Facebook, post links in music forums, try partner up with some other channel, it could work this way.
