Good Job On the video/

Heres an idea:

Why not put out like 5-10 videos based on your viral content?

Like: 5 Ways To Win at Game
How to know if your game is about to end
How to get better at game
Also, if there are any mod versions of the game or spinoffs.

ALSO, ask the viewers on your viral content (Pin a comment asking what they want to see next from you) and start churning out those videos.

respond to every user question or relevant comments, and keep the viral trend going.

If you don't have a patre-on account make one and post it in the description.
Also get your Social Media Twitter/or Facebook/ or instagram going, so people can keep up with you and the production of videos and other related content.

Good Luck

I've had a gaming related youtube channel since Jun 1, 2015.
Until literally a week or so ago i couldn't even pass 40 subscribers with over 100 videos that i've gradually posted over the years.

and then BOOM, a single 3 minute video started getting traction.
Now barely a week later the video just broke 300k views and i just broke 1000 subscribers, with no signs of stopping yet.

Now I haven't made any money or anything, but i think this is a cool showcase of the power of SCALE. its a powerful force indeed ;)

Check this glorious graph: 13937% lol

there are other .io type games such as slither.io, i play it casually and am thinking of strategies to get first place the fastest.
once i got something good ill make a video on that.

other than that, ill definitely be looking out for random casual games to kill a little time.
if i end up being very good at it i can always make a video lol


Honestly though i don't wanna get caught up in the whole rush of it and provide my audience with false expectations. I release videos at a comfortable casual rate, and try my best to edit it nicely.

i dont wanna just churn out stuff.


Congrats dude!

YOUTUBE FAMOUS, COMING FOR YOU!!
i think id be an awesome celebrity lol
id be mad chill all the time.

i dunno why I'm so excited over this thread.. 3 million views.. congrats

make sure you have some way of funneling them somewhere

You need a splash screen at the end that brings them to your channel or at least telling them to subscribe... this video is gonna get way more views.. put something in the description sending them to your site so you don't lose them

I actually did it twice, but didn't even think to record the first time.
The first time took me 2 tries.

Second time took me over an hour and lots of cursing lol but i just HAD TO MAKE THAT VIDEO.

Awesome job man, that's a winning event after slogging through the process.

Don't just wait for Youtube to approve though, if you don't currently have ideas on how else to monetize, at least set up a Patreon account and have at least like a $1-$5/month month tier for people to support you to keep making more videos.

With 5k subscribers + patreon supporters this has high odds of being a nice money maker.

small update, so i finally got monetized.
the first 3 million views i got are sadly down the drain money wise but it is what it is, can't cry over something completely out of my control.

When the virality ended, i went down from 50,000+ views an hour to under a 1000 an hour.
But for the last few days it went up to about 3000+ an hour.

So i went from making 5$ on day 1, to 45$ on day 2, and 128$ on day 3.
If this continues i may break 1000$ by next week or something. That would be pretty cool lol.

I'm currently unemployed with only about 2500 bucks in savings and looking for some minimum wage labor work, so literally ANY extra money feels like a gift from the gods!


I'm actually kind of afraid of spending any of it cause i have no idea how the taxes will work, being an employee all my life this is all so new to me.
I'm afraid if I'll have to spend it all on bills and stuff and then find out I owe some taxes on it i can't pay or something.
But i also assume that if I end up earning so little that it all goes to bills, then my net income would be low overall and my tax burden would be low accordingly so it couldn't be that much hopefully.
