youtube may have a large market, but they are stingy and wont pay the little guy for their hard work, forcing you to keep your day job and struggle to build a brand. there is a better way to make money from your videos however,… oh you want to know what it is?
check out gumroad.com where you can actually post videos for others to rent or buy and instantly download. they do keep fifty percent of your sale price, but thats way better than youtube gives you. so why not? you can still use your yt channel to tell people about your website and gumroad store then at least its useful somehow.
