Thank you so much Brian! @bcraig
Well, it takes times and a little bit of luck too, so people get into it and start pushing a channel without asking them ALL THE TIME to do it for me. I take it as it is. I don’t want to sound “pushy” or annoying by telling every 5 seconds, LIKE, SUBSCRIBE, SHARE…blah blah…I don’t need that. I don’t want that. Here and there it’s okay to give a small reminder, but there are many people who overdo it, IMO.
Thank you Stephan @StephanLindsjo! Yeah, sure, you need A LOT OF VIEWS to generate an income that will surpass your “usual” day job. I didn’t want to cover that, as I can’t give you “real” numbers, I didn’t “make” it on YouTube, so it’s off-topic for me. I’ll check your link, thank you again!
Oh, yeah! You are absolutely right! My video was just a “small” part of what is actually behind the “real” YouTube success! I haven’t told the whole story, and I don’t have to. I just made it for me and for the people in my circle to see and understand possible and achievable numbers. I never said that I want to earn money with YouTube, nor should somebody else. It was just a little answer for the people who really want to make it on YouTube and besides consistency, commitment and presence, there is MUCH MORE BEHIND the REAL YouTube success!
But as you said, self-branding is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT! There is never a guarantee for anything out there, and there are hundreds, even thousands of people investing thousands of dollars into YouTube and trying to MAKE IT! But only a few of them really do! That’s the truth. People forget that.
Maybe I will do another video about that topic, self-branding. YouTube is for sure the best way for a creator to start showing the world what YOU CAN DO! And for FREE!
And again, if MONEY would be the ONLY goal, people will see and feel it. Money always follows when you do FIRST the thing you really LOVE, BREATH and just show that you have fun doing it
Take care and thank you watching again!
