I love retro video games, and it is a topic that I have always been able to talk about for hours and hours. Whether it is debating the SNES versus the Sega Genesis, or just talking about the great games that I grew up playing, I really get no greater joy than discussing old games. Because of this fact, a friend of mine recently told me that I ought to consider setting up a YouTube account and publishing videos about all of the great stuff there is to discuss regarding retro games. Because this is something that really is just a hobby for me, I did not really see any kind of point in putting videos out on the web. However, my friend told me that I might be able to make some money by doing this, so I decided to investigate a little bit in order to see what sort of info I would be able to find.
I was amazed to discover that there are probably hundreds of people out there with channels that are focused on retro gaming, and many of them actually strictly do YouTube for a living. These people no longer have to work jobs and are able to discuss retro games all day and make money doing it. To me, this seemed like my dream job, and so I wanted to find out what I could do in order to copy their success. Obviously, there was already a lot of competition out there for me, so I needed to find ways to build up my audience and show them that I had a little bit something different to bring to the table. Simply getting people to watch the videos seemed to be the hardest part, and that is why I began looking for ways in which I could buy YouTube views so that more people would get to see the work that I had done.
Because this has now become a pretty legitimate way to do business, there were a whole bunch of sites allowing you to buy YouTube views in order to build your brand. Of course, not all of those sites functioned the same, and I wanted to make sure that I did things the right way so that I did not end up regretting any purchases that I made. This is the reason why I made sure to find a company that would not simply use bots to click play over and over again on my videos, but would actually get the videos in front of actual human beings so that they could watch them.
After doing my research, I found a great online company that specializes in this sort of thing, and with my first investment in this marketing strategy, my channel took a huge jump in popularity. I am now hopefully on my way to doing what I love for a living, and that is something that encourages me. I’m on my way to a retro gaming career.
