I wanted to go over how I earned my first YouTube check and how you can do the same! I’ve said it before, making money on YouTube is perhaps my favorite online hustle. That is because creating videos is extremely rewarding and that’s without earning any money. The YouTube check is just the icing on the cake. So let me tell you how I earned my first YouTube check and then I’ll dive into the steps you can take to do the same.
This Is How I Earned My First YouTube Check
It all started by creating a channel. Well, I did just that back in 2009. The thing is I only uploaded one or two videos, which really didn’t earn me anything. It was a gaming channel, which could have grown into something. The only thing is I didn’t pursue it at the time. Fast forward to 2016 and I decided to start creating again. Only this time I was going to make videos based on the content I created on this blog. More so I was going to create tutorials that will help others accomplish what I’ve accomplished online. By doing just that I was able to get thousands of views on numerous videos. Also I started gaining new subscribers everyday!

Now if you are like most people you want to create a VLOG. Let me tell you right now that is great and all but it is not a surefire thing. More people go on YouTube everyday to search for solutions to their problems. That is why tutorial type videos and not VLOGS have the most potential for earning you money on YouTube. So I dove in on my own expertise and simply shared it with others. Actually at the time I started the channel I was simply sharing what I was learning along the way. You can do the same. And eventually you will want to and should create additional channels. One of which should definitely be a VLOG Channel.

I Also Had To Do Some Marketing Of My Videos
You can have EXCELLENT content but it means nothing if no one knows about it. I was able to earn my first YouTube check partly because of the content. Secondly because I was able to lead people to that content. So how did I do it? The simplest way possible. Going into the editing section of my videos within the Video Manager and clicking on PROMOTE. Google Adwords works especially well when it comes to YouTube videos. Makes sense considering YouTube is a part of Google. Once your videos start to catch on you won’t need much more advertising. That’s because they will have earned enough “juice” to get them shown frequently in recommendations and other places, organically.
