Can You Make YouTube Into a Legitimate Career?

In seeking my own YouTube success I have learned a lot about becoming a YouTube producer as a career choice and just how realistic it is to do so. In this article I want to share what I have learned. I first started making YouTube videos seriously in June 2012 and within two months I realized that there was a lot of potential for making this a serious income stream. In July I made one video that made over $50 in it's first month, and the video was only about ten minutes long.

How to Avoid Paying Interest Rates on Your Credit Card With a Debt Cycling Trick

My partner and I have been dealing with a good chunk of credit card debt for a while we managed to come up with a trick to avoid paying some of the interest. We dubbed this little trick 'debt cycling', which I will explain why later in this article. This technique doesn't really help you pay off your debt but it does stop the interest rates from spiraling out of control. This can be a real life saver if you are walking right on the line, especially between pay packets.

How to Monetize a YouTube Channel Without a Network Partnership

Previously, in order to make money on YouTube you had to be a member of a partner ship network such as Machinima or TGN. This was not very easy to do because most networks have minimum viewer or subscriber counts that applicant must obtain before they can join. It could take months or even years of never earning a single dollar in order to meet these requirement, especially if you were only doing it as a hobby in your spare time. Regardless of how good your content was, you could not earn from it.

ZiggyD's July 2012 InfoBarrel and YouTube Adsense Earnings and Strategy Report

In July I learned the lesson of diversification. Not in a harsh, catastrophic way but in a nice obvious "this is what happens if all of your content is in one niche" sort of way. YouTube was, again, the biggest focus of this month though I did see an the effects of summer on my Infobarrel earnings. Both actually had a substantial drop in earnings, but I am still seeing overall growth.

ZiggyD's May 2012 InfoBarrel and Adsense Earnings Report

May has been a huge month for me on InfoBarrel and YouTube in terms of Adsense earnings and freelance writing gigs. I have seen massive and inspiring growth in places where I didn't expect and it seems like the care and effort I put into all of my work is really starting to turn heads. This is awesome because the exact reason why I am self-employed is because I don't like changing my values for other people. So to have my work recognized for being high-quality means that I can continue focusing on quality instead of doing what seems common in the freelance writing industry and just turning out mass-spun content.

ZiggyD's April 2012 InfoBarrel Report

April has been an exciting month, to say the least! Adsense income is steady with a slight drop over last months, which seems to correlate with missing the bonus revenue share last month and starting a bunch of other projects. On the other hand I have been working out a daily schedule and seem to be getting pretty settled in my new home and town. I have a lot to talk about in this InfoBarrel report so I might just get started.
