Making Money from YouTube

4 years ago I started making YouTube videos while in my final year of medical school at Cambridge University. I started off with 0 views, 0 subscribers and $0 in revenue. I knew absolutely nothing about filming, editing or publishing videos, but I somehow managed to figure out the basics. 18 months later, my YouTube channel reached 100,000 subscribers and was making as much money as my full-time job working as a doctor in the UK. Now in June 2022, my channel has just passed 3 million subscribers and makes over £100,000 ($130k) each month, with 5-10 hours of effort on my part each week. And that's just what the channel itself makes from Adsense and sponsorships - our overall business revenue if you include courses, affiliates and products is over $350,000 per month. I know — it’s bloody ridiculous.

⚗️The Secret to 100,000+ Subscribers

Over the last 4 years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build an audience from scratch, provide value consistently, and monetise in a non-spammy way. I’ve spent over $30,000 in courses and coaching programs to try and find the secret sauce that helps grow a channel and a business. And you know what? There’s no secret. It’s just a matter of: 1. Creating content your target audience finds useful 2. Posting it on YouTube once a week 3. Repeating this for at least 2 years That’s all it takes. I personally guarantee that if you follow this 3-part formula, your life will change in ways you can’t imagine. For starters, you’ll learn incredibly useful skills, you’ll generate ‘passive’ income, and you’ll make friends with amazing people from all over the world. You might even get messages from people about how your content's changed their life. But as with all things, getting started and maintaining quality + consistency is easier said than done.
