cool man I appreciate it. Its alot of work even for simple videos. A quick 5 minute one takes over an hour of editing and such depending on what you are doing. My one video I made with GTA 5 called The Story of boostie, that took me 16hrs because I did everything, voice overs(bad at that haha), sound effects and music.
If you are doing it for fame or money(which is very, very hard) then you are going to have a bad time lol. In order for that to happen you need the traffic. Biggest things are Subscribers, likes and and them sharing. The next biggest thing is watch time, some people just check out for instance, a 5 min video just long enough to like it thinking they are helping and though the like helps Youtube looks at how long people watch the videos, the smaller the % of watch time the less adds are used which is how you get paid. So people do more harm than good when just viewing that 5 min video for only a few seconds. Once a video gets a lot of likes and view time that is how you get out there besides shameful promoting like I am lol.
I am doing because I like it, if I ever earn money to where I get money from it that is cool but not doing it just for that.
