    Hello everyone and welcome to my second journey!

    Summary

    I have been recently looking at YouTube and noticing that channels in the news and current affairs niche are getting massive amounts of views. To capitalise on this trend, I have crated myself a channel that will focus on this niche. My plan is to grow this YouTube channel to about 3000 subscribers and then create a second channel and repeat the process. The videos I will use are videos from other older no longer active channels. I will be using the set and forget method and will not be buying any views/likes/ subscribers. This will be a completely natural YouTube channel, to ensure that I get passive income for a long time

    My secret twist

    There are many channels like mine, so I have spent some time coming up with a twist I can use to separate myself from them. This twist is focused on branding my channel by watermarking “my” videos in a way that will gain me subscribers and likes, as well as creating a brand.

    What I have done so far

    One week ago, I used one of my two year old YouTube accounts to create a channel about the news and current affairs niche. I have chosen a profile picture that will increase my channels trust and connect my audience with me. I have been uploading two videos per day and I am seeing great results. When I started, I was getting a few views per day and now my videos are getting a lot of traffic.

    Interesting information

    On this website, I often see lots of people stressing the importance of buying views so they can rank their videos on the first page of YouTube. The interesting information, I have gained from my channels analytics is that 82% of my views are coming from suggested videos and only 6.2% are coming from YouTube search. This suggests that ranking high on YouTube doesn’t matter much in the news niche. In addition, my stats show that 73% of my traffic is from the United States and my average view duration is 6:19 minutes.

    Monetization plan

    I will be monetizing this traffic through Clickbank and Adsense. I am promoting a relevant Clickbank product in the description of each of my videos. I am using Tinyurl to hide the Clickbank referral link and once I start profiting, I will buy a domain name to increase viewer trust. To gain attention to the clickbank product, I will be using YouTube annotations to direct my viewers to the description. I am also making money from Adsense due to the high amount of traffic each of my videos is getting.

    - 9 000 views in the last 48 hours

    What Clickbank products are you putting on YouTube on a 'News and Current Affairs' channel. Also have a channel like this UK based and couldn't think of anything relevant to really put on there.

    Adsense earnings update:

    Note: The reason these stats are three days old is because of youtube's earnings update delay

    At the movement, 73% of my views come from the United States. This is why my earning are so high!

    Check your AdSense earnings from AdSense itself, not YouTube. Hosted Adsense for content = YouTube

    No problem. Be sure to login, click performance reports then in the dropdown (Report type) click it and then select products.

    Then at the bottom of the page click Hosted Adsense for content.

    And good luck on your Journey! I'll be watching... o_O

    Will be following this and congrats on the first sale. May I ask what kind of products you promote and if you mention them in the video or just let them sit in the description?

    I am promoting a product relevant to the video I have uploaded. For example, if i upload a video that discusses the stock market, I will add a clickbank affiliate link in my description that promotes a stock market product.

    YouTube channel statistics – 27/08/16

    - Subscribers 214 (+ 71)

    - Videos 15 (+2)

    - Views: 6000?? (12000 views in last 48 hours/2)

    Income:

    Clickbank

    Hops: 30

    Sales: 1 + (1 up sell)

    Total sales: $20.35

    Youtube adsense:

    Note: In the “products: hosted adsense for content” section there is no data showing up (see picture uploaded). To calculate this income, I am using the performance section at the homepage to divide my total daily view count with my page RPM (Page revenue per thousand impressions).

    I am using this formula that I have created until my earnings update,

    Let daily gross income = page views /1000 x RPM
    Let daily net income = gross income x publisher revenue share (68%)


    Total daily net income: 14.40

    Total income = Clickbank + Youtube adsense

    = 20.35 + 14.40

    = $34.75 USD

    Note:

    I have reached my journeys goal!!!

    Let's see if I can maintain it!

    The revenue figure for YouTube in AdSense is not accurate. The correct figure will be shown in the YouTube client after 48h to take into account YouTube Red and incorrect clicks.
