He made the money because YouTube promoted his stupid videos for some reason. I doubt it is possible to grow a YouTube channel organically these days.

Someone said Bald makes 200k per year with his videos. Not bad and he doesn't do much editing.

JohnnyFD probably less.

I'm at 298 subscribers and 1178 watch hours (need 1000/4000 to get monetised).

I'll report back if I ever do make some money. The easy money has been made on Youtube, but I think there is more of a future there than blogging. The major downside is Youtube eating itself alive by trying to be a second rate TikTok.

Figure out how to game the system. This stuff is all a scam. It's all a game. McDonalds makes the worst burger but yet everyone keeps eating it and they're still very profitable.

The window for becoming a JewTube star for anyone without whorporate approval was between about 2013 and 2016. You would need to figure out something else now.

I like this guy's channel Sanctioned Ivan

https://www.youtube.com/c/SanctionedIvan/videos

It's basically about a guy who escaped from Russia because he didn't want to fight in putin's war. New recruits are given 1 day of training or no training at all then sent to the front lines to be slaughtered or used as cannon fodder.

You should start with this video (Oct 2):



Then watch the rest. He's now living in Alanya, Turkey. I don't know how much he's making on his videos but he drives a Cadillac Escalade.

I also watch Johnny FD's videos. This is a guy from San Francisco who bought two apartments in Ukraine. One in Kyiv the other in Kharkov. Both cities are suffering heavy bombardment now so he can't access them.



I recommend you watch all of his videos. They are a lot of fun and he interacts with Bald and other YouTube characters.

He's also got a GoFundMe or a GiveSendGo so he's making serious coin. He has about 10 businesses all going.

Most of these YouTube content creators do not make their money from YouTube monetization. They make it from donations as Sanctioned Ivan explains:



They have either a GoFundMe, GiveSendGo, Patreon, BuyMeACoffee, etc. That is their main source of revenue. DONATIONS. YouTube pays very little unless you have millions of viewers and subscribers.
