YouTube Creators new monetization policy. Get more subs.
« on: January 16, 2018, 11:39:16 PM »
So for anyone else here who has a YouTube channel and recently got an email about their new policy that requires 4000 hurs of watch time in the last 365 days and at least 1000 subscribers in order to qualify for monetization on your videos, let's make a thread of channel links that everyone can sub each other to hit that 1000 subs before Feb 20 to keep the $$$ coming in.

Are you actually making money on YT?
My videos make pennies.

A few bucks. You could probably make good videos with all your trips.. maybe a travel channel or something.

I have a YouTube channel and just got the bad news. I have 278 subscribers. I made an average of around $30/month. If anyone can subscribe to my channel I would appreciate it. Thanks! youtube.com/channel/UCy3l1rjQDgOYX5iy0sq7LwA

Video editing is too time intensive for the reward. I'm sure it works for Casey, but I don't envy that lifestyle.

On a serious note, I'd love to see vlog/review videos of your trips, not that they would make that much money but they would definitely be cool for us to see.

My videos get maybe 100 views a year each, except for one that's at around 13k/yr. I turned off ads a while ago, I figured the pennies I may make isn't worth putting a viewer through the annoyance.
