Have you ever heard stories about some people being able to make a living by uploading videos to YouTube?
You know what I’m talking about, those urban legends of a cat video going viral and the owner receiving thousands of dollar each month in passive income.
Today I’m speaking to Brandon, a 24-year-old Physio from Canberra who also runs the Aussie Wealth Creation YouTube Channel that currently has over 45,000 subscribers and generates over $3,500 thousand dollars a month through YouTube Ad revenue.
Some of the topics we cover today include:
- Why Brandon started his YouTube channel
- How to monetise a Youtube channel
- What’s important when creating content
- How much money you can expect to make per views
- Other passive income techniques Brandon has tried
- The Young Investors Podcast
And much more!
Dude you might want to think about changing your name. Firebug isn’t O.K half the country is on fire. Show some consideration and empathy.
Seriously Chris? Are you that precious mate? Get over it.
Not sure if serious or trolling…
Chris, you might consider telling the Fire Service to change their name too.
Come on Chris, I remember when we all weren’t so fragile. It is a play on F.I.R.E. are you writing to every F.I.R.E. website to complain about their insensitivity?
I think I have listened to all or at least most of your podcasts. I admire, that you have done lots of work even on your holidays or now in UK. I wish I had better work ethics too. Anyway. This podcast on making money on youtube was pretty awesome. I am currently FIRE, ( and writing bit about it on whyninetofive.com) living on Sunshine Coast. Living modestly off the rentals and bit of ETFs. But making videos and podcasts requires quite a lot of extra skills, it is just great new economy.
Thanks for this podcast and I am looking forward to the next one.
Yes, you do need skills for making videos and podcasts but I’d argue that it’s really not that hard. I mean, you can literally just film yourself speaking from your phone straight to YouTube.
It might not be the best video but you can get your content out there and start building your company/brand.
Compare that to the way you had to do it in the past and it’s insanely easier.
Previously, you might have had to buy physical items, store them somewhere, run advertising campaigns, juggling inventory etc.
The internet has open many doors for entrepreneurs with an idea to live a digital lifestyle.
I’m so lucky I can continue writing and even publishing my podcast no matter where in the world I am. So lucky to be living in the 21st century!
Thanks for the kind words mate.
I loved this episode as I’m actually slowly building up a YouTube channel too!
Definitely not much of an income source at the moment but I really just started it because I love gaming and trying to help people get better!
As Brandon mentioned, you really have to enjoy making the videos as it does take quite a lot of time (for me it takes roughly 1 hour of effort to make 1 minute of video) but if you love it, it’s awesome fun.
Hopefully I can grow it and build somewhat of a Snowball like Brandon – thanks for this podcast as it has given me some new takeaways and thoughts about the whole YouTube life.
No worries Blake.
It’s so true about making content you love though. There are a million people out there trying to start YouTube channels, blogs, website etc. that are predominantly motivated by the money. These never work out as well as someone who is genuinely passionate about the content itself!
Good luck with it!
Such an informative podcast here, nice work to you both!
Thanks mate 🙂
Great podcast mate, very inspiring. Definitely getting me off my arse and out starting 🙂
I’m glad you liked it mate 🙂
and not just me too – Miss FI even got really excited listening too. She is also a physio so has a lot in common with Brandon. She really wants to start her own blog/brand about her experiences as an elite athlete and physiotherapist, but is not really sure where to start. So this was really great timing!
