Now, I have a YouTube channel that shares my interests (some basic videos showing products that I enjoy using and how to improve some of them), I spent a big part of my savings over the past 2 years to make these videos so video upload are very irregular as I can't afford them. My best videos have over 150,000 vies and my worst video has just over 700, the channel now has 1000,000 views and almost 4000 subscribers.
I have started to run Adsense on the videos and make pitiful pennies every week, and I gain subscribers by about 2 per day.
My question is, is there anything I can do with this channel that would be useful in the future? Or will channels like this usually just be a side show to the odd subscriber?
I started recording videos with my mobile phone camera and sharing things that I found quick tips or minor fixes for, some viewers enjoyed it so they stuck around, it's just a small channel that but the subs like to stick around. I'd like to expand the channel but I am so lost when it comes to digital media. I edit the videos with my phone too, so you can expect everything to be a very small, back room spare time operation.
I have been approached many times by companies claiming that, for a small fee, they could take my channel to the next level for me but I never trusted them.
So here I am guys, that's my first steps in the digital world, any help and pointers to help me expand to scale up will be greatly appreciated!
