    Hello BHW members
    As the title read, I am going to take my YouTube channel from scratch to 1M Subscribers. I know it is going to take at least a year for reaching the milestone, so let's get started. My channel is targeted towards India(Regional language and not Hindi) and the niche is going to be Entertainment. I am not going to implement any black hat methods as I do not want to risk my channel getting banned.

    Strategy
    I have hired a video creator(Salary $50/month) for my channel who will post 1 video each day. The length of the video will be between 3-5mins. I will simultaneously post my videos to my FB page as well, to try my luck with ad breaks.

    Monetization
    Youtube requires at least 4000+ watch hours and 1,000 subscribers for the channel to get monetization. I plan to attain it in 1 month.
    As the channel is targeted towards India, I expect the CPM to be 0.2-0.5$/1000 views.
    To get qualified for FB ad breaks the page should reach 30,000 one-minute views on videos that are at least 3 minutes long.

    Goals
    1. Reach 4000+ watch hours and 1,000 subscribers in February.
    2. Reach 100k subscribers in April.
    3. Reach 500k subscribers in July.
    4. Reach 1Msubscribers in December.

    I will try to update my thread on a weekly basis and I will give a detailed analysis of my earnings.

    Reach 100k in 4 months? But ok if you are targeting India, maybe it's possible after all. Good luck.

    I think it's possible in India. Follow my journey to check it out.

    Yeah. Will need it.

    It's not slide show. Just take some clips and edit it. Lots of channel in the niche are doing well. So just giving it a try.

    I know that was what I was thinking. The videos must be lower quality. Heck I wouldnt charge less than 200 for a vid for my work. Then again . I use professional gear, bad as lenses. Gimbals and kill it on premiere pro. 1 good video is about 5 to 7 hours of work!

    Yes. It is not english or hindi, it is a regional language.

    Entertainment.

    Its mostly edited content from online sources. But I have to make sure to follow the fair use policy.

    Monetization is not my final goal. New avenues of income will open up when you have 1M subscribers.

    I initially used FB ads. Totally spent $15 for 1.7k likes.
