Making Money on YouTube for Idiots (Me) 2019

When I started EOSHD I was just a forum poster at DVXUser giving out all this info for free on someone else's site and the site admins were horrible to me one day, so I thought - right - enough of this, I'm going to set up my own camera blog, my own forum, and that was EOSHD. I hope my passion showed through!

Very true! I guess it was obvious you'd be their most serious competitor one day. And I recall when I was there practically alone if not the only one defending you. Archives are there to prove and mark my words : ) Glad to be here from minute one to see you to succeed along this hard way building this community. ūüĎć Even going on your toes as webmaster, our supreme moderator... LOL ; -)

/hey!! oh no, i just thought of something!! are there... rules about how long a video needs to be to work with adsense, or anything of that nature...? like it has to be at least 2 min long or... something? it just occurred to me...

 


If it is ten minutes long then you'll get two adverts in it, which is why so so many videos uploaded are bang on ten minutes or just over it.

edit: double oh no!! PLEASE tell me that you dont need 1,000 subscribers minimum to use adsense?!?!? thats crazy, theres TONS of channels with viral million+ views videos that have less than 1k subscribers?? example


So? If you only have a viral video or two then we're still only talking about pennies. 

Anybody who takes it seriously (with the aim to make it a career of sorts) will get 1K Subs easily (heck I'm almost there ish and I take my channel very very casually with low production values indeed).

Cats. That is the secret. ;)

But, if you don't have a cat, there are other things that will get views:

Box openings/reviews (even if you don't actually own the item, just comment on it - like why you are preordering, then cancelling your preorder, then considering repreordering, that sort of nonsense). It can be virtually anything, preferably something a lot of people are likely to consider buying. And you need to be doing it constantly, but choose a general theme of products, not random stuff or you will not establish regulars.

Have an over the top personality. The topic under discussion in the video can be anything, the point is to bombard the viewer with babble. Preferably offensive (people love that), but not so much so that you might get banned/carted off to jail or anything like that. Remember, people will be coming to your channel to watch YOU, so you better make sure that you are entertaining in your own right.

Cute girls in bikinis, or guys in whatever apparel that gets the ladies going. Sex sells, if you present that you will probably get tons of views. Weave that into whatever other type of video you are making if in any way possible.

Travel experiences. Preferably to unusual or exotic locations. People will look these sorts of videos up when they are planning or thinking about vacations. Again, having an over the top personality/bikinis etc adds to this if you want views. Be excited (and preferably youthful).

How to videos. This can be as simple as the proper way to hammer a nail into a piece of wood. People are always looking for tutorials on how to handle simple tasks that they have not done before.

@kaylee Something else to add to my post and from @Andrew Reid's above:

truth.

Without it, you can succeed anyways... but, well, you know : X

 

This following post written Yesterday on dvxuser reminded me to point out this one now ; )

*nuff said, reason why EOSHD is the success we all know*

Furthermore, I would submit that you're about 11 years late with this observation. I raised holy hell about the "DSLR revolution" for precisely these same reasons. The 5D Mark II was a horrible thing, shooting on it was miserable, the aliasing was terrifying, the workaround hoops you had to jump through were obscene, and it got "a name" and everyone thought we should shoot on it. I was pretty much alone, even though I was dead-to-nuts right. It took years for people to abandon that thing.

Too funny to say the least LMAO : -)

 

Who here does still remind that controversy between Shannon Rawls and Barry from that shootout?

Barry has special skills to describe facts touching his own targets and interest beyond a polite and friendly presence to ask no less reciprocity. I see his role to triumph much more as attorney than a mere shill though. Just some other cross-breed.

Let alone the last controversy on RED Mini-mags...

Blend stuff must be clear enough to be fairly understood and translucent. This skew Andrew has never delivered to his clientele, in behalf of his audience also thanks to good common sense.

Despite people have always difficulty to understand anything hybrid by nature, I guess : -)
