How to Start a YouTube Channel and Make Money!

Hi, my name is Steve and welcome to my channel and my first video.

About me first:

English is not my first language because I speak French on a daily basis so I have an accent "Quebecois" because I'm from Quebec City, Canada. I'm 51 and I've been into the make money online niche since 2008. I've got my blog since 2000 and then a little bit earlier than that. At one point, I had 375 domains that I used for SEO and SEO service. I don't have them anymore. I will make a video sometimes about it if you want.

Like most of you, I have a job so I don't intend to make this a full-time job so I will update every two weeks. I expect you'll understand more why later on. Like you, I wanted to start a channel so I took uh many, many hours watching similar videos so you don't have to and combine all the information I found in this video.

Here is the list of the seven subjects in this video:

  • Starting a channel
  • Settings in your channel
  • The equipment
  • The reality of making videos
  • SEO to bring viewers
  • Bad things to expect
  • Let's talk about money money money
  • Giving back (Bonus)

When Trump announced in 2015 that he was running for President of the United States of America, his detractors said it was just a publicity stunt for the billionaire. Nobody, except the Simpsons, could have predicted it. His none political/none correctness style attracted more and more supporters every day. This was unexpected news to him and his team. The longer he lasted in the Republican primary races, the more press he got.

Btw, if you did not notice, I am Canadian thus the .ca in the domain name. Why do I care my friend asked? Whatever the US does(any party), it affects other countries in a good or bad way.

When elected, Trump set in motion "Operation: Hard Nose" for his supporters:

  • Using Twitter to speak his mind
  • Calling the mainstream media Fake News Media
  • Using Section 232 of a 1962 trade law "for matters of national security" by adding tariffs on steel and aluminum
  • Playing hard nose with Iran/North Korea.
  • Starting a tariff war with China
  • Preventing the appointments of new judges to the appellate body of the World Trade Organization since 2017
  • Threatening of not signing a new NAFTA
  • Calling expected Democrat nominee Joe Biden "Sleepy Joe"

I was about to check out Godzilla: King of the Monsters when I noticed it had 5.1 surround sound. A movie that's not an HBO production with 5.1 sound? Can this be really true? Did the Crave recent addition of the bilingual option aldo added 5.1 to more content? So, I decided to check out more movies in the "Just Added Movies" section and also the "Box office" section.

When Crave announced that they were going to be bilingual on Jan 28, I was happy for my friends and potential francophone subscribers in Canada. A lot of good French content will at last be available to them. It is a step in the right direction for Crave when competing with Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, Amazon Prime... It also makes Super Ecran($19.99/month) available without being a cable subscriber so a good option for those wanting to cut the cord.

cutting the cord

In this article, I will try to be generic while focusing more on the Canadian market. Even if you are not Canadian, the information may still be of use for you since cutting the cord is a world wide trend.

What is cord cutting?

With higher and higher cable bill, many are cutting the cord from their traditional cable provider. That is "cutting the cord". It could also include dropping your traditional land phone line too and only use a cell phone. I will focus more on cable in this article. But is cutting the cord for you?

Lower Your Cable Bill

Before cutting the cord, try to see if you provider can offer you a better deal. I have done so myself with success a few times in the past years without losing channels ... at first. Also, if you are renting a wireless receiver(ie Bell Fibe), you can get an Amazon Fire TV or streaming box to replace it by using the Bell Fibe application. I got rid of mine thus saved $7+tx/month.
