I started a YouTube gaming channel because I wanted to really do my hobby and I figured, why do it if it’s not your hobby and something that you’d want to do the rest of your life sure the money may not be great, but over time, if you post a ton of videos that momentum can build up for your channel. So this is why I chose gaming because I knew I can produce a lot of content for it, and it would be something that I really enjoyed.
A lot of people get caught up and doing the thing that’s going to make the most money at first. However, I felt like over time, gaming would be more profitable as it became more popular instead of more niche and I think that’s been the case, as I’ve found ways to kind of make some smaller forms of money such as Facebook reels and other forms of things like a podcast and now I’m creating a website.
So I’ve kind of over time grown to the point where I’m not just doing YouTube. I’m doing other things that can potentially resort to passive income for my YouTube channel and website. I think this is what you have to do if you’re going to get into it because it can take a really long time for gaming to take off on YouTube.
Right now, YouTube short seems to be the way to go. And that’s one thing I have found out from YouTube Gaming is that YouTube shorts tend to do pretty well. Overall, I’m able to get hundreds of 1000s of views each month by using YouTube shorts. So that’s a great way but I’m also using other social media platforms. That support short content that I can just repost pretty easily. So I recommend that you also do that. While my channel isn’t the biggest channel. I feel like I’m in a pretty good position right now from a gaming perspective to really launch a massive growth because I’ve set everything up such as the podcasts such as the website, posting on numerous social media platforms, every once in a while sometimes every day, and really just not taking anything as for granted.
I’ve gotten into some game development stuff and experimented with that and that’s been pretty helpful overall. So I recommend just experimenting with what you think is going to work. If you’re a new channel, definitely try new websites that are up and coming. I have not backed off of trying out new websites like rumble to see if I can get some views that way and have had pretty good success over on rumble. So don’t put anything off as being somewhere you cannot post your content.
If you’re a gaming channel for instance, you want as many eyeballs on your content as possible, especially in the beginning of YouTube where it can be pretty hard to get long form content to take off unless you’re in a really good niche and gaming is a very popular niche with a lot of players. And that’s what makes gaming so hard. But I got into some game development and had evergreen content from that perspective. So also be thinking about what videos can you make that are going to last a long time and try to make at least one of those every week.
So you have some passive content that’s not just gaming news, or just the latest game something that’s gonna last a few years is the route you want to go such as how a virtual reality change over the next couple of years, or what is next gen gaming going to be like in the future.
Those are the types of topics that you can choose. That can be really helpful and growing a YouTube gaming channel. I’ve been able to get over 1000 subs, I feel like I’m going to reach 10,000 Subs eventually. And I think that’s going to be a really big thing here soon because I have so much momentum going on with my YouTube channel and the website trying to really post a lot of articles like this. And I think that’s what you have to do.
You have to experiment and be willing to put the work in but if you do, you start getting a momentum and that momentum kind of carries you like I’m doing right now and we’ll see where it goes.
