My first video was a flop, only getting about 8 views/day... but then I uploaded my 2nd video and it got 900 views in one day, then a consistent 800-1,000 views (up to 365,000 views now).
I uploaded videos every now and then afterwards, sometimes 4 in a month, then 1 every 2 months, I wasn't that consistent but still managed to build up to 4,500 subscribers.
It has been 5 months since my last video now on that channel, and I can't produce new content since I am no longer passionate on the subject matter. I still make passive income from the views though.
But using what I learned, I am launching a new YouTube channel and seeing how fast I can become a YouTube partner or get to 10,000 subscribers.
I'm documenting this journey on my blog, and sharing with the community what strategies other people use on youtube to get the most views/subscribers.
Do many of you try to make money from youtube? or think there's too much work involved to make income and you don't usually see immediate results?
