Default Any YouTubers on the Green Screen?

When I say youtuber I mean someone who makes all or part of there income through a YouTube channel.

I have recently become fascinated with people who are doing this and wanted to see if any fellow TBHers have dabbled in it.

Please share!

My daughter has a channel where she does stuff with American Girl Dolls. Its almost at 10k views and she will be able to monitize it. I've been talking to her about trying to grow the channel.

my daughter is starting her own channel and should be releasing it very soon. She is 7. Her channel will be doing arts and crafts for kids, some outdoors stuff, basically just having fun. My wife is her helper and I am camera guy and producer.

I have been goofing with different video editing softwares. iMovie is the most cost effective due to it being on both of my macbooks already. We are looking at better mic and camera as well. It's been fun so far helping her a long and I get to use some of my knowledge from recoding music when I was younger.

just subscribed to you guys.

Matt is a great guy and has a BUNCH of freaking subscribers between Demolition Ranch, Vet Ranch and Off The Ranch. More than 8.3M subscribers between the 3!

A good friend of mine built him a couple of signs and both of his sons attend aTm and are in some of his videos. After the video below was shot Matt took them to lunch and to the gun store where he bought one of his 50 cal!

He sure seems like the real deal for sure. His wife is easy on the eyes too!

I'd hardly call it "income", but I make a little (very little, most months!) monthly spending money off my channel. But, I enjoy making and sharing the videos and am trying to slowly grow the channel.

Ive always thought a year round look at ranch/wildlife management would make a good channel. Showing all projects year round along with hunting in the fall. All filmed on one ranch.

I have friends who stream live playing video games. He streams 6 nights a week for 6 to 8 hours playing two or 3 different games and he averages 250 to 300 dollars a night. That's pretty good for just playing video games live on You tube and twitch.

No. I started my hunting/trapping/ranching channel back in 2008 I think. I have 4350 subscribers and several million views on my videos combined. I was into it heavy before there was adds and money involved. I refused the offer way back when as I didnít want anyone to have any control over my content besides me. Several of my buddies that were part of the YouTube hunting channel community back then that did get paid have pretty much had their channels shut down, vids deleted, etc. Itís not worth it to me. Iíd rather have my videos stored on YouTube without the chance of them getting yanked like so many others have had.

Iím not sure how it all works these days, but Iím not interested in finding out either. Good luck!

Default Any YouTubers on the Green Screen?

Iíve started one to hopefully start making more money so I can get off my other businesses pay roll and I want to learn the ins and outs of YouTube. Iím working to get better content. I want to get to where Iím posting several times a week with useful information and market some of the companies that Iíll be working for.

Iím into everything from hunting and fishing. So I want to film those adventures. My clients also are starting to invite me all over the US. Another few thousand views and Iíll be able to monetize.


Iím the unofficial TBH film guy for when we go on WORP.

Anyone looking to make something with YouTube (Iím no pro by far) needs three huge things. Interesting content, mad video editing skills, and an audience.

We are constantly learning and tweaking our intro and have dropped more than I care to admit on gear. In a couple weeks we will produce another and you will see what Iím talking about

My college son is a Youtuber. He has steadily grown his channel and has a good following. He spends alot of time editing which is his least favorite part.

In a nutshell, adds. The revenue depends on the number of views of your videos with revenue adds inserted. There is a minimum of 10k views before you start earning and one needs a minimum of 1k subscribers

I'm certainly no expert at building a YT channel. I wish I would have embraced it years ago, but when YT started in 2004, I didn't want to drive traffic FROM TBH and insisted on uploading videos to the TBH server (and even put "youtube" in the swear filter to keep links off the site.) Even before YT, I wanted to create a weekly "video journal" with updates on what was happening on the site, hunting info and videos, etc. I definitely missed the boat with what YT has ultimately become!

That said, there's still plenty of opportunity in the "creator" market, both inside and outside of YouTube. Here are some random thoughts, some of which could fall into the "advice" category.

1. "Take the Leap." "Just do it." "The first is always the hardest." Pick your cliche'...but you have to start somewhere.

I didn't start my "Video Journal" when I had the original idea because I had a hefty supply of excuses. I needed a new camera...different lens...better lighting...higher quality audio setup. I need to learn to color grade...boost audio...animate grapics...tell a better story...create zoom or light leak transitions...people will think it's corny...the list goes on and on.

Pretty much everybody has what they need to start creating videos in their pocket (camera phone) and their head (idea or story). Don't overthink it. Just create it and upload it. Not many people are likely to see your first one, anyway!

2. "Make bad videos until you're good, then make good videos until you're great." Create and upload your first and then move on to the second. You'll learn new techniques, get more efficient with filming and editing, get more comfortable talking to a camera, etc. the more you create and upload. Don't try to wait until you're a great producer, editor, storyteller, etc. to start. Increase your learning curve to greatness by doing ("doing is learning" if you want another cliche')

3. Find your niche. Most successful YouTubers have found a specific niche - idea, information, entertainment, topic, etc. - and cater to that audience.

4. Story is king. This should probably be #1. I think too many new "vloggers" rely on just winging it with whatever happens in their daily lives. Some vloggers can get away with that, but in most cases those vloggers built an audience elsewhere by providing information before they started vlogging their personal "story." Neistat, Carriker and Rackley are each good examples. They built an audience before they started vlogging their personal lives. Even if vlogging your personal life, you still need to tell a compelling story. Neistat is brilliant at this.

5. Be consistent with uploads. This is one of my problems, but you'll build your audience more quickly if you are consistent with your uploads.

I have more random thoughts about this, but I need to get to work!

I'm not going to be able to stop working anytime soon, but we have over 4 million views and make $150 a month! We are working on ways to hopefully increase this and post a little more often. Finding editing time is the toughest part! It's hard for me to sit down at the computer and edit when I spend 40+ hrs a week on the computer at work. Having young kids makes it difficult too as I'd rather spend time with them.

Good stuff! Has YouTube demonetized any of your hunting videos yet? Its a disturbing trend and has happened to alot of big youtubers. Fishing with Flair posts alot of hunting vids and youtube has demonetized most if not all of them.

Also my son noticed a big decrease in ad revenue for the same amount of views the past couple of months. It was almost cut in half. I think he said this month it was back up but he said there was no rhyme or reason for it.

I have a new YouTube channel. My old channel hit about a million views. I still get about 5 hate messages a week on one of the videos of TxAg hitting a warthog in the spine with an arrow. ha ha ha.

I just started a new channel and Instagram page if anyone wants to check it out.
