I busk for a living by playing guitar out on the street, I get gigs every now and then which brings in a nice bit of income, I've been doing this for half a year currently. However, I want more, I've felt this to be a major accomplishment because I am now doing what I love instead of being an employed slave, I've now registered as self employed, I'm making my money how I want to make it... But it's not enough, I want to take it to the next level because I'm just scraping by.
I want residual income. I've invested into the creation of a website which I have made myself: www.Nathanieljpwills.com
And I'm now writing blogs which can be viewed here on my website:
I've created my YouTube channel which you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNe...LJhe_a0WYIbbHA
And have committed 3 days in so far to writing a blog each day and to create a new YouTube video each day. I've created my Facebook fan page and I've been joining different groups on Facebook in an attempt to start gaining traffic toward my content.
However I know theres something I'm missing, and according to a lot of what I've researched on YouTube, most YouTubers get very little from Add revenue unless they have subscribers in the hundreds of thousands and beyond, leaving most of their monetary acquisitions in the form of sponsorship's and external means. And in terms of sponsorships, with my niche being very linear as to just playing a certain genre of guitar there doesn't seem to be too many opportunities for that...
What can do?
How can I progress?
My current to do list states that I should:
Shoot and upload 1 video each day
Write and publish 1 blog post each day
Find 1 new Facebook group/community each day to share my content with
And then spend the remaining time busking enough to make my living and cover my expenses.
What needs to be added to this? I want to start earning residually.
Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
