  • [ – ] The_Justin_Show reply Yeah ad revenue is a pain in the ass and you need so much to make any sort of living off it. I think if someone wants to do Patreon and people want to support a creator. Cool for them. Nice video on the topic.
    • rulesforrebels parent reply not necessarily true. there's guys with 1k subs making more than guys with 100k subs. its all about the niche your in. if your a daily vlogger or doing the cinnamin challenge and stuff like that your going to be at $1 or $2 cpm. if your doing videos about a niche which has advertisers you could get upwards of $15 or $20.
  • JustABloke reply RoFLmao, I so loved this, you tell her girl. OK back to the topic. I think there are lots more people like this, you know the ones, that just say anything they like before thinking it through. Most I tolerate, others I totally ignore, and the odd one you just cannot ignore. 👏 👏 👏
  • SamEarl13 reply Very good rant, I probably would of said the same things. There was a time I felt I couldn't tell people about how I lived because I'd get hated on for 'E-begging' and its horrible how far people will go to make themselves look good at the expense of making out everyone else is bad. So many things they couldn't even be bothered to factor in... -_-
  • MFKraven reply wow id never heard of her before, but she does seem classist af, you are right to be enraged :)
  • Markusooi reply good rant, hope you feel better. You are totally right
  • Scripteladora reply Health insurance is mandatory in Japan. I don't know how much it is now but I used to pay about 3200yen in 2009/10 But no she doesn't need money... she needs to pay for her luxuries and a new camera that she bought the day before!
  • [ – ] Free_Range_Cheese_MRE_Reviews reply You sound super jelly!
  • Pillar2Post reply Definitely like your style, blunt, to the point and funny. Followed you cause you talk like I do. As for the topic, nailed it
  • crissymoss reply Even if they are big youtubers... some of the biggest ones, like Philip Defranco and Boogie2988 have had so many videos demonetized that they are just earning a fraction of what they used to earn. You can't just go by a persons views to see how much their making. And even if they are making a lot are they a big channel, like Defranco, that has a whole team of people on the pay roll? Serious stuff to consider as some youtubers aren't just paying for themselves, they have people who depend on them for a job. Even people like Captainsparklez who pays editors, and musicians for help with his content has people who are depending on him.
  • gridsleep reply My favorite line from Fifth of July: "Honey, never tell people that they aren't what they think they are. What's the profit?"
  • gridsleep reply Actually, Nippon is having it's own economic crisis, because the population is getting much older and youngsters aren't getting married and having children to replace the depleting tax base.
  • gridsleep reply Patreon was founded and is managed by exactly 1/2 of Pomplamoose. Isn't that nice enough for anyone? Super nice!
  • ScaryStoriesNYC reply Why not support other creators who are trying to subsist? I actually think it's divine justice that you became gluten-intolerance after expressing intolerance for people with gluten intolerance. In fact, I think that's all anybody needs to know about you or any of your rants. Why not rant against Google instead of people trying to survive?
  • TRIPTUBEtv reply Good video !!
  • Librebowski reply YouTube died during that election. R.I.P.
  • [ – ] SunsetPop reply I don't like patreon because I would hate asking my fans to give me money for silly videos I make on the internet. I mean if you have other expenses like kids or rent, just get a job and do YouTube or vidme on the side. Do it for free til the ad revenue builds up. Think of doing videos like a multi level marketing gig.
    • [ – ] theMagdalenRose parent reply It really depends on the type and quality of videos you make. If you throw up an unedited Lets Play with a premade intro, then yes, you could probably do it on the side. Though I really don't know why you'd want to. If a creator is interested in making higher quality, or even just a variety, of videos that takes time, effort, and creativity. all which they should be compensated for.
      • [ – ] SunsetPop parent reply Guess I am just old school and I rather get money from private investors or coming from my own pocket.
        • theMagdalenRose parent reply True, but how many small fry creators such as myself could possibly attract the attention of a private investor? That's rich people stuff. ha ha
    • rulesforrebels parent reply hey pop, im sorta in agreement with you that i personally probably wouldn't ask for money but that said many creators spend a ton of their own money on mics, cameras, editing software ,etc. if someoen enjoys their content and wants to support what they do i dont think its outrageous to support them. that said in this day and age most people expect free content and i dont see most viewers comming out of their pocket to support creators, at least not to the level that ad dollars can
  • [ – ] CrazyJoeWurst37 reply Put ad's on videos
    • rulesforrebels parent reply id like to see that. i want to see creators get supported and make money and the reality is most viewers aren't goign to come out their pockets and do so, so personally i dont mind the minor inconvenience of ads if it supports a creator who i probably otherwise wouldn't pay. i made a video this morning about this.
  • rulesforrebels reply ive considered starting a patreon and even have a profile butt never have pulled the trigger. despite the fact i give out more content for free than others charge like $2500 and even $5,000 for in garbage ebooks and coaching programs and while i do feel i give the value i do feel sorta like an "ebegger" asking my audience for money while at the same time i dont really judge anyone who does, maybe ive been shamed by people like this youtuber you speak of
  • rulesforrebels reply hey there first off love your videos great job keep it up. just to play devils advocate a bit, i see a lot of creators who almost act as if the world owes to pay them for their creations. today i was reading an interesting debate on reddit about how people who do animations deserve to make more than someone doing a cinnamin challenge or a trolling video because so much more work and effort goes into it. while i can appreciate that and even agree to a point, the market determiens what wins and hte market determines what people will pay for. i that this site is incentive based, but i think the sad reality is most people wont open their wallet and expect content for free which i think you kind of touched on. heck i remember when netflix raised their price like a buck i almost lost my shit despite me getting like thousands upon thousands of movies, tv shows, etc for like $8.99.
