YouTube Revenue Reports

Hi! I’m excited that you’ve found your way to this page! What you’ll find here is a collection of all my YouTube Revenue Reports as I share and put them together!

My hope is that you learn a thing (or two) from my own experiments with YouTube monetization. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up on Twitter or leave a comment on any of the YouTube Revenue Report vlogs.

  2. Follow Me on Twitter (@8BIT) – this is one of my primary communication channels.

  4. And, if you want to hit me up directly, you can always email me too (I read every single one).

My (Current) Gear List:

Something that always surprises folks is the fact that I do all of my production on my iPhone 7 Plus. EVERYTHING. This includes capturing footage, editing, producing, and then publication. Here’s a list of my current setup:

Here’s a quick walkthrough as well:

Finally, what you’ve been really waiting for…


YouTube Revenue Reports

My hope is to share my experience with monetizing YouTube at least once a month. I’ll do the larger retrospectives via monthly blog posts. But you’ll probably also want to take a look at my Monthly Revenue Dashboard:

I’ll continue to add to this every month, so, make sure you follow along!

December, 2016:

In December I made approximately $17. You can read the full report here.

But, in this report I forgot to add the Amazon affiliate payments, so I actually ended up making much more money that month. You can see that via the monthly dashboard.

January, 2017:

In the first month of 2017 I continued to grow the channel and double what I made directly via YouTube, moving from ~$17 in the previous month to > $34! Read my full retrospective here.

Obviously, this is very cool and the potential to make serious money is no longer becoming a mystery. In fact, I can clearly see how folks make a full-time income doing YouTube. Wild stuff!

February, 2017:

An increase of revenue from the previous month but a significant drop via Amazon Affiliates, which is a bit surprising in terms of the drop but it doesn’t make me sad. The full retrospective can be found here.

March, 2017:

A very interesting month… that’s all I’ll say about that. You can read the full report (which is short) here.
