Start a YouTube Channel and make money online 2021

One of the mornings, I was watching videos on YouTube. My eyes dropped at a thumbnail a seven-year girl makes ₹ 1.5 to 2 lakhs per month on her YouTube Channel.  I got shocked really by how the young girl is running the channel? I went through the video and got to know that she gets help from her father. They are from Orissa and residing in Bangalore. But, her father helps her with editing and upload the videos. And the rest, she had to do like finding and making contents.

In fact, in the video, she told us that it was an unexpected ending to making videos for YouTube. She created a YouTube channel for fun and entertainment only. Later on, she gained more and more views, comments and likes that leads her into monetizing the channel. Thus, she is making money ₹ 1.5 to 2 lakhs per month.

Another inspiring YouTube story a ten-year boy makes ₹ 25,000 per month through his YouTube channel. In an interview, he told us that he has only a Redmi Mobile phone costing six to eight thousand only. He makes all videos on his mobile phone. And the interviewer asked him that don't you go out playing with your friends? He will play with his friends also, but he can't come out of the home due to the pandemic, he says. Very shortly going to buy a new laptop with his earning. Increase his business using the Laptop, such as tricks and tips of computer, applications, etc.

And I keep questioning myself. Why can't I start a YouTube channel? To my mind, I need to make a new YouTube channel. So, I have created a YouTube Channel Etlogs very recently. Now, it is your turn.
