Thank you! People start YouTube channels for many reasons, but no matter what, most will tell you their first real goal is to hit 1,000 subscribers. That was my first real goal too. 1,000 subscribers on YouTube is the first measure of success. It is also one of the criteria you need to hit if you want to make revenue from ads on your videos.
And just over 10 months from launching the YouTube channel for Kemp Outside, we hit 1,000 subscribers! To think that 1,000 people like my content enough to support me is a terrific feeling. I strive to make the best videos I can make, videos that are fun and informative. And I hope my videos inspire you to get outside and get your kids outside.
So you may have noticed that ads now appear on my videos. Before I was a creator on YouTube I found the ads annoying and to be honest, no one likes commercials. But creating content like this costs time and money. In truth, making an income is a great motivator to make the best videos I can. And it helps me continue to provide free content to the people who need it, which has always been my goal. I want to make it easier for parents with no experience to get their kids outside. Creating content you have to pay for does not fit that goal.
So I hope you don’t mind the ads you will now see on the videos. Feel free to hit that skip ads button (I do) but if you aren’t in a hurry, you can help Kemp Outside by letting the ad run. YouTube creators make more money if you watch the whole ad. This is a great way to help support Kemp Outside at no cost to you! To see our video archive, click here!
Thank you all so much for supporting me and Kemp Outside. If I can help you get your kids outside, please let me know by dropping a comment below! I’m excited to see what 2021 will bring! Thanks for reading!
