My Journey Toward Fianancial Freedom: Using YouTube to Grow an Audience


Over the weekend, my girlfriend and I were talking about big YouTube personalities. I never saw any of his videos up to that point, but she introduced me to PewDiePie, the biggest YouTuber in the history of YouTubedom.


Truthfully, he’s not my personal taste, but I totally see why he’s popular. Afterward, my girlfriend showed me the vlogs of a few people she likes. These were more of people sharing their lives. It’s pretty much what I’ve always wanted to do.

Oh yeah, these people make money from it.

Well, that’s all I need as motivation. I already started on a vlog, but now I’m going to make it a thing. I figure if it’s something I planned on doing anyway, why not make it serious?

In the past I had a decent run going. My most popular video was one I did for a guy named Athene. It’s a video for a song I recorded called Together to the Top and somehow I managed to get over 70K views on it.

Holy crap.

Believe it or not, I had no interest in maintaining those numbers back then. I just thought it was a cool little project. Well let’s see what I can do when I really put my mind to this.

So I’m going to try my hand at this. My immediate goal is to try and get myself up to 500 or so views per video. After that, I’m going to see if I can join up with a  network so I can further grow my audience. When I started my vlog, I was aiming for Monday to Friday. I think Monday/Wednesday/Friday is a much more conservative goal as it won’t detract too much from my blog and other projects.

Anywho, you better believe I’ll be monetizing these videos. I mean, I wouldn’t be posting this under “Financial Freedom” if I wasn’t. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it if you check it out!

Also, if you ave a YouTube channel you want to promote, let me know! We all have something we’d like to share with the world. I don’t mind doing my part to help out a fellow dream chaser.

Peace out, party people.
