You CAN make a living on YouTube, even if you have a small audience.
When I had 3,000 YouTube subscribers my channel was generating $10,000 per month, not because of Adsense, but because I wrapped a business model around my content. This course will teach you, step-by-step, how you can do the same.
- Learn the primary elements for earning money on YouTube
- Discover what attracts subscribers, sponsors, and sales to your channel
- Find team members who will exponentially increase your income
- Setup your channel for success as a legal business entity
"I disabled most ad formats, but I still live full-time on my YouTube channel and employ two other people.
The principles Tim teaches in this course is exactly how our channel makes money."
This is a very practical, step-by-step video course on how to go full-time on YouTube.
Maybe you assume that you need to have millions of monthly views on YouTube, hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and super amazing videos to turn your channel into your career.
That is certainly one way to do it, but some of us serve communities that just simply aren’t that large. That doesn’t mean our audiences are less valuable — it just means we need a different business model than Adsense and brand deals.
A business plan allows many creators, like myself, to earn closer to $300 per 1,000 views on YouTube instead of the average dollar or two that Adsense provides. This course will show you exactly how you can do that.

How the Course is Structured
The course is divided into three sections. The first section helps you setup your channel to start earning money. The second section shows you how to create and implement a business plan on your channel. And the final section covers an overview of how to start scaling your income with a team.
Each section is comprised of individual video lessons. Some lessons also include links to additional resources that are mentioned in the video.
After watching each video lesson, there are several action steps for you to take to help you execute what was taught in the lesson.
Most lessons include a quiz you must pass before you can move on to the next lesson. These quizzes are automatically graded and ensure that you understand the information that’s being shared.
No. This course is presented through a series of online videos. When you go through the checkout process to purchase the course, you’ll create an account here at videocreators.com. Or, if you’ve purchased other courses here in the past, you’ll be prompted to login to your existing account. After the purchase is complete you’ll get immediate access to watch the course videos and take the quizzes here on this site. There is nothing shipped in the mail to you. No DVDs, books, nor anything like that.
Your purchase gives your account access to the course for 1 year. Don’t worry, though. After one year you are not billed for another year or anything. It is not a subscription fee. Your account at videocreators.com will simply no longer have access to the content after 1 year, that’s all.
Yes. Wrapping a business model around your channel is required for any serious creator who plans to make a full-time living serving their audience. This applies to both educational channels as we as entertainment channels on YouTube. The material in this course is relevant for both.
The course itself does not come with interactive access to Tim, Ryan, nor other creators. However, patrons of Video Creators at the $10 reward tier and higher get access to a private discussion forum where Tim and other creators are active. If you become a patron on Patreon at that level or higher you'll get instant access to that private discussion forum where you can ask questions, get feedback, share ideas, and more. You'll also get access to an exclusive patron-only YouTube business podcast, monthly video hangouts, guest expert trainings, and much more. Check it out!
Yes. In fact, you’re at an advantage over other channels if you grow your channel with a business model around it from the very beginning. Making the transition later can be time consuming, costly, and difficult both for you and your audience. Set your channel up to generate a full-time income from the very beginning. This Video Creators podcast episode will provide more insights into how you can earn money on YouTube with a small audience.
Yes, this can work for you! I’ve seen many creators quit their jobs and go full-time based on the principles in this course.
The amount of money you earn depends on many factors, including how hard you work to implement the action steps outlined in this course, the size of your audience, the strength of your relationship with your audience, your profit margins, the quality of the value you provide, and more. Some creators with very small audiences hit $500/month very easily. Other creators with similar sized audiences hit $5,000/month in the same amount of time.
