Oh, gather ’round, aspiring YouTubers! Prepare to be dazzled by the extraordinary tale of William Lee, the finance guru who stumbled into YouTube with all the grace of a bull in a china shop. Move over, Wall Street, because Lee’s YouTube success story is about to give those rats a run for their money.
Our hero, Will, embarked on his YouTube journey with the kind of knowledge about the platform that you’d expect from a caveman discovering fire. Forget about the fundamentals; Will was the Christopher Columbus of YouTube, sailing into uncharted waters armed with nothing but an MBA in finance and a chartered financial analyst title. Take that, YouTube experts!
But wait, there’s more! Will’s resume boasts stints as an equity analyst on Wall Street and even a gig as a Chief Financial Officer. Clearly, YouTube was just the next logical step for someone of such unparalleled expertise. Move aside, basic YouTubers – the financial genius has entered the chat.
In a daring move that shook the YouTube world to its core, Will decided to set a goal of a thousand subscribers and four thousand watch hours within three months. One video a week was the grand plan, but alas, his Etsy shop called, and who can resist the allure of handmade crafts?
Despite the setbacks, Will’s YouTube numbers weren’t half bad. Forget about meeting his upload targets; he was too busy crafting his Etsy empire. Numbers-wise, though, things were looking up. The Etsy experience turned out to be the ultimate game-changer, proving once and for all that financial wizards make the best YouTube sensations.
Sure, Will failed to monetize within three months – a mere 54 subscribers after all that struggle. But fear not, dear readers, because after a divine intervention (or maybe just a spark of common sense), Will decided to spill the Etsy beans in his ninth video. Lo and behold, in less than two weeks, he skyrocketed to 1000 subscribers and 4000 view hours. Bravo, Will!
By April 16, the day the YouTube gods smiled upon him, Will’s channel had 1641 subscribers, and that Etsy video clocked an impressive 315K views. Move over, David Blaine; Will’s making YouTube magic happen!
But wait, there’s more! Will’s pièce de résistance was the video that declared war on side hustles. With a peak of 44K views per day, that masterpiece became the crown jewel of his 24-video empire, raking in a whopping 630K views. Who needs side hustles when you can master YouTube drama?
By June 30, Will had amassed 28,000 subscribers, with the anti-side hustle anthem contributing over 14K to the tally. The cha-ching didn’t stop there; between April 16 and June 30, our financial prodigy pocketed over $7,000. Sure, the golden days of $335 per day may have dwindled, but $50 a day is nothing to scoff at. Take that, rat race!
Now, let’s gather ’round for some nuggets of wisdom from our YouTube sage, Will Lee:
- Forget about previous experience – just dive into YouTube like you’re doing a cannonball into a pool of uncertainty.
- A good video is one that tricks viewers into clicking the thumbnail and then keeps them hostage until the end. Throw in some likes, subscribes, and comments for good measure.
- Predicting which videos will soar and which will flop is like trying to predict the weather – mostly guesswork with a sprinkle of luck.
And there you have it, folks! William Lee, the unexpected YouTube sensation, has shown us that even a finance wizard can conquer the online world. So go forth, my fellow rodents, and remember: if Will made it, then surely, you can too. Over and out!
