    How to make money on YouTube in South Africa

    MyGaming caught up with Brett Stelmaszek, a South African YouTuber and gaming hardware reviewer, to find out how to make money from your YouTube channel.

    But he's not making money from youtube? O.o
    "What I get from Adsense is less than what it costs to power my PC"

    Also, none of the technical questions Youtuber might have is being answered. Perhaps we can get more info on that?
    Like, how to work Google Wallet from SA?
    If you do generate some revenue, can you let google pay it to PayPal? Then add a link to how to get PayPal money into your account through FNB.
    What not to do would be nice as well.

    What I really do like, but is not as apparent from this, is that people shouldn't lean on the hope of making tons of cash through Ad-sense.
    Because if you want to make R15k a month, you'll need 1,000,000 views monthly. That's a tall order.
    You also need to create content every month that generates that.

    So knowing that, thinking about what else your channel provides might be better.

    I make about R1000 every 3 months via adsense. Google pays it straight into my account.

    We need to have a quick chat. I have an animation to launch on youtube, and I have a few questions, if you don't mind?

    That he does.
    You won't believe how often I run into people who think that they just need to make that one viral animation, and from adverts they'll make enough to be set for life. Kinda like a magical Youtube Lottery.

    Mine is through a website and not Youtube however. Just wanted to show that it's possible to make money with adsense and that it's easy to get paid. You are welcome to pm me. I'm very busy but will pop in every now and then.

    My buddy has a bit more views I see(eish this sounds like such a dick comment), https://www.youtube.com/user/PixelCortex/videos
    But he doesn't upload that frequently... His highest viewed video has 382k views, but thats 3 years ago. His latest of 3 months ago has 9k views. Then there is the Zumanomics video that got him close to 14k views.
