Youtube Channel marketing - some questions

Moderated: Please post this in the correct forum, the Social Media forum, thank you.

Hi Guys,

I am preparing a youtube channel in a very Hot niche.
I am thinking in bringing maybe up to 100 videos of unique content that normally are sold at a reasonable price, like courses, how to do it, etc...

My concern its more about monetization.... and here i have a great doubt.

Basically i don't know what will work better, if i give a premium content for free in order to get tons of subscribers and video views all organically so i can monetize it with Youtube partnership...

I don't know if this approach will bring me a decent income in a monthly basis, if for example i want to have $1000 of YT revenue what do you guys believe to be the number of subscribers and channel views required realistically speaking?

The other path will be offering some free and great stuff in the videos but if the audience want the full information will have to buy a Videos or guides... this approach will bring me much lower subscribers and viewers eventually, and i dont know if this will work better then the freemium solution.

What do you guys think should be the better approach based in your experience?

    Well the numbers definitely vary but an estimate would be around $1-2 per 1,000 views. And this changes based on US vs Non-US views. But let's just say you get $1 for every 1,000 views, you would need 1,000,000 views a month to make $1,000 a month.

    My opinion would be to put links to your products or affiliate products in your description box under your videos and make your money that way.

    However, I'm pretty sure you could do both (monetize and link in description) if you wanted too.

    Always test, test, way to know for sure which will work out better for you.

    I would offer some good free content on well optimized pages and a link to your squeeze page in the description. At the end of your video offer more good content for opting into your list. Be sure to say "click the link below" or have an arrow pointing down or both.

    After they are on your list you can promote your full course or related affiliate products.
