Good Day Gamers,
I wrote this quick blurb as I’m seeking your advice on something that may change my channel, for better or worse. Your feedback is appreciated and thanks for reading this over.
Recently, I’ve crossed a threshold and I’ve been asked to partner with several companies to monetize and optimize my YouTube channel. Though there are a lot of options out there, and I would like to turn this into a career, I’m holding back from monetizing my videos with ads. The reality is that I’d like to do this completely on my own, without external assistance, which reduces the amount of ads I would need to run to raise the same amount of money. Let it be known that at this time, I am making nothing, and I’m happy with that.
I knew that this was going to be a ‘long haul’ kind of a project, but I’m hopeful and determined to see my dream of becoming a professional gamer come to life. I knew it would take a few years to establish a loyal fan base, and I’m determined to do that more and more every day. I’m dedicated to create what you like and I’m happy to do it.
Here is my question to you, my fans and the community. If I were to enable ads on my videos and accept donations, would that be an acceptable course of action or would it be a severe enough of a turn-off? As of now, I’m personally eating the costs of my Minecraft server and this website and any amount would help. Please note that this isn’t a plea for help, but I’m asking you for guidance as I respect the opinions of my fans and followers.
Thanks for taking some time out of your schedule to give this a read. I appreciate it.
