Making "money" off a youtube channel is very hard to do... I finally got to the threshold where they pay you after 3 years and just like most other youtubers, they kicked my account for "possible" invalid clicks... Not that I had any, just the possibility.

Trust me, there is NO money in paintball videos. Guys that make content do it for the love of the game, and capturing their kills, and sharing. Posting on here and other forums is a way to show others their (non paid) hard work...

I have spent thousands on gear to produce my weak videos. Sometimes you make one that you feel is better than just the regular "video" thread... So you post a thread for discussion. Personally, I think a good video showcasing something is much better than just describing it in words. Course I love film, so maybe that is just me...

Making online video content is rough business, so many haters out there, so many guys don't even bother putting their stuff out there on forums. They just make it and leave it on youtube. But, I know for a fact, you can really drive views if you post it all over, and if the video is good... Tons more will follow. Good video of our sport only helps grow the sport. Too bad there is so much bad video that it is hard for the fans to find the good stuff...
I made 109 dollars in 1 year of my paintball youtube channel. I have around 551 subs and some 80 videos.
