      Why do people even live if they don't get any money in return? Fricking Americans are so brainwashed by capitalism.

      They think they're going to make it but they're NGMI.

      maybe they just enjoy making videos like how i enjoy writing rambles? who fricking knows, man. anyways, would frick them both.

          wtf. That's 500 uploads a day for over a decade. As simply produced the videos are, that's a fricking lot.

          He puts zero effort in his videos.
          Doesn't even bother to put his smartphone on tripod so his face doesn't jiggle like jello.

          Getting more than 10 views for a video of that quality is generous.

          Seems like a simple Q&A thing. And I'm guessing he's reusing those opening clips of himself; robably spent a morning recording a few dozen of them. Else he owns one shirt and his lower lip has been fricked up for ages.

          Given the nature and format of the videos I can forgive him for the production quality. It's not a youtuber/vlog/entertainment type channel that you watch on a regular basis ... more like Stack Overflow in video form

          >click on "Oldest" button
          WTF. All but 3 of his videos only goes back 4 years. Does the upload count include hidden and deleted content?

          blackpill is that if he was somewhat attractive looking his vids would get thousands of views from children and boost him high enough to be seen over pajeets.
          i doubt he has the technical skills to accomplish this but he should switch to a big booba anime avatar and do the exact same thing translated into multiple languages across discrete channels.
          atleast that way he'd make a living wage instead of beer money

    They're all under the assumption that eventually someday it'll all payoff, because that's what they've been led to believe. The fact of the matter is it's of course total nonsense and a product of western capitalism (durr just le try, try again you're going to make it hurr! everybody does!!!). The reality is people made more money selling shovels and land than people did from actual gold during the gold rush (content creators being the prospectors in this analogy) .

    What if they just genuinely enjoy making content for the sake of making content, without any hopes of gaining traction, becoming popular, or making a profit? Why make the assumption that an activity must have a tangible return? Can't the act of creating be enjoyable on its own?

        >Now this is titanium-tier cope
        Elaborate on that, motherfricker. There is zero point in making a youtube channel just for the sake of trying to "become popular" just because of how saturated it is, how many bots there are, the algorithms, having to pander to the lowest common denominator, competing with people/companies that have frickloads of money already. It is likely that less than a percent of people actually manage to make something out of it. Maybe they desire to cater to a niche audience. Perhaps it exists as a sort of "journal."

    I'm thankful for the all small videos that I watched. Most of them where I actually learned from. Like this one: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BjFltFBDNYY

    Low viewer count + Boomer western voice + (germany/russian accent) + long video above 6 minutes + white skin + technical/educational aspects = good shit. I tend to avoid videos with high viewer count.

    >Be me, a few months ago, start a youtube channel for programming stuff, post a few vids of stuff i make. Don't promote or market it anywhere.
    >Instantly get tens of thousands of views, almost 1k subs now
    >Look at other channels, even ones with 100k, or close to a million subs, i get more views than them (see Sycra, a drawing channel)
    It's really all about adding value. Especially nowadays. Subscribers don't mean much. Every video has to be good or it won't get pushed by the algorithm. Any channel no matter the subscribers can blow up or fall off overnight.

    I think that people go on YouTube looking for specific things and you need to deliver that to them. There is so much to choose from so you need to offer real value. E.g. give something away for free, teach them something and save them many hours, make top tier entertaining content that can compete with the best, etc.

    I think a lot of people don't understand this. They just keep posting/'grinding' thinking they are slowly progressing if they see subscribers go up or whatever. Maybe they are earning passive income, a few bucks a day or something so they keep doing it. But i think it's not really like this. At least not anymore. If you make a good video, with the YouTube algo and how connected everything is nowadays it can blow up overnight even with 0 subs.

      That's such fricking bullshit. What about all of those moronic elsagate spiderman elsa scat porn videos that had frick loads of views? What about all of those other bullshit videos for children that have little substance?
      >There is so much to choose from so you need to offer real value

        >What about all of those moronic elsagate spiderman elsa scat porn videos
        Could be viewbotted, that's also a very small minority of the algorithm. Afaik the strat there is to exploit autoplay on YouTube kids. Sure some of the algorithm is going to be spammy stuff but in my experience most of what i get recommended is pretty close to my interests. But i never click on click baity thumbnails so maybe my algorithm is different than most people's. Also, value is subjective. One man's trash is another man's treasure. I get a ton of comments from people saying they love my vids or find them useful, whereas my family does not watch them and finds them extremely boring/doesn't understand because it's programming stuff. Just how it is. Not everyone will like what you make.

        >What real value?
        Like i said, something that would be worth real money. Like saving a lot of time, giving away some product, program, etc, for free, giving viewers dopamine through various means, teaching something which is not widely covered and hard to find tutorials for

    Making videos should be a hobby.

    I genuinely don't understand the mechanism of monetising yt videos.

    I understand adsense and I understand people who promote stuff in their videos. I even get ads in videos.

    But 2 things:
    - where does the money come from for click thrus? Is this an agreement between the video producer & yt/google where if the makers gets so much traffic they get a certain amount of money (from yt?) per click?
    - for "high value" producers (let's use techtips as an eg. here) do they offset the cost of production against ads - a bit like a tv studio might or do most of the biggish names still run small in-house production?

    any answers would be appreciated here as I clearly have a boomer mindset on this - I've never got the concept of influencers and how that can be a 'career'.

          If they are promoting something in the video, even stealthily so it doesn't come off like shilling then they have deals with companies outside of yt/Google. It's just like instagram, if they have enough followers and views they can demand a certain fee

          It depends on the monetization options they choose. The more ad breaks a video has, the more money they get per number of views. I think videos have to be at least 10 minutes long before youtube lets you monetize them, so some people stretch them out to that length with filler and nonsense.

          As that other anon said, when the ads are part of the video, the youtuber is reading them and so on, that's outside of youtube's purview.
