I have tried to record this video like six times already, and i don’t know i should. I guess i should have scripted it. I don’t script, anything and now it’s raining it’s starting to rain. On me. I yeah i don’t script, anything i just kind of wing it i just kind of go, so this channel has got to change and that’s what i’m going to talk about i’m. Also going to talk about some of the things you may not know about other youtube channels and this youtube channel as well – and i i want this channel to be viable right and i don’t mean i got to make money and be rich or anything like that. But i would like it, for i would like for it to at least break even that’d, be nice because it is a money sink. It is a time sink. I am putting so much time and so much money into this channel and i am not getting anywhere near what i put into it out of it, and i just it’s also taken away from the things i need to do in my life, like all this right Here all this debris and stuff right here, this needs to be taken care of, and i haven’t had time. I’Ve got a project over here on the side of my house that i’m supposed to be building up over there. This little this little pond and waterfall got going on over there.
I got this little water feature. I haven’t had time the track people have been asking about. I haven’t had time. My yard needs to be cut, but i can’t cut it right now. My mower, i need a i’m waiting on a part to repair my mower and uh, and i had time to go, get it fixed last weekend, because i was making a video for you guys. I was out at the mountain doing the bronco video. I i work full time. During the week i drive a tractor trailer and some days i can work like 13 hours. In a day, the other day, i had a flat tire and it took three hours for the crew to get out there and get me back up and running. So if i had a you know a 10 hour day well now it’s a 13 hour day and i had to go to the doctor and do that during the week and i have to tend to other stuff. You know during the week. I just don’t have time and saturday morning is when i get off work and i have to take a nap wake up, get a little bit of stuff done. Usually what i’m doing is i’m prepping for the video that i’m going to film the next day. I’M. I’M, you know cutting my yard, picking up, sticks, trying to get everything cleared out or trying to get anything that i need from the store.
So i can make a video and then on sunday i make a video. Sometimes i make two videos. I spend all day long making a video and then that night i will spend editing one video and then i will try to edit another video and that can take all night long. So i stay up 24 hours every single sunday. Every sunday i stay up 24 hours to make a video for for youtube or make several videos – and i was trying to you – know, post one of those videos on friday and the other one on monday, and i mean it’s just i can’t keep doing it. I can’t keep doing it. I am letting things around the house uh go that need to be taken care of i’m, not taking care of my property like i should be because the one day i get off, i i’m, just not able to get things done. Uh also i’m, not making the kind of content. I want to make i’m not producing kind of youtube videos. I want to produce, i kind of felt pressured into getting the latest rc. That is, you know, out uh doing a review on it, and i also felt pressure doing review, not review videos but repair videos, and the thing is those repair videos take forever to film. They make no money at all. They make no money at all and so i’m spending. You know six eight hours making a video that makes you know ten dollars.
Sometimes so, could you imagine working for that that’s, not even minimum wage, not even close to it, and these are videos that really i felt pressure to do them, and i don’t i mean i, i don’t hate them, but really it’s, not what i want to do. I don’t think it’s the best use of my time and i know so many of you really appreciate those videos and those repair videos and it really feels good to have people say: hey man, i was having trouble this repair, but i saw your video. It helped me out so much and that’s awesome. That’S, awesome, it’s, really awesome, but i mean it’s such a big chunk of my life to to produce one of those videos and it’s, not really what i want to produce so the kind of stuff. I would like to do is custom car content like custom rcs. I have got some stuff with my felony. I want to do and i just haven’t done it. I, like the video, where i did the fender wells and stuff like that that’s the kind of stuff i would like to do i’m experimenting with something that i’m going to build up on the felony and so that’s. What that video was my clodbuster video. I love those kind of videos, the late, the last bronco video i made the 2021 bronco video that’s, the kind of video i would like to make all the time and i really loved making that video.
I loved editing that video and the whole process was fantastic, and i would actually like to do more stuff like that. I would like to produce better quality content rather than just putting up two videos a week and you know kind of not wanting to make them. I don’t want that kind of stuff. On my channel, i want to produce the best possible content. I can, and i rather go for quality over quantity, which is unfortunate because youtube really rewards quantity and not quality. When it comes to rc car videos because see the thing is rc car channels, they don’t do well if they’re just reviews and repair videos. Those videos do not do well at all. I mean look at any youtuber it doesn’t matter. Even rc sparks go look at his videos like his low c lmt videos. I think he had like 167 000 views for that video that barely pays for the rc, not like i don’t, know how much he’s making on his youtube channel, but i think that that may have paid for the rc or maybe it did. I don’t know it’s pretty close cut it pretty close, but most videos don’t get a hundred thousand views even on his channel. The reason why he can do videos like that is because he has a few videos on there like the laminator videos that will get like 10 million views and those will pay for all the other videos.
But i don’t have videos like that. Just by every one of my videos, either like a repair, video or a uh review, video i’ve got a handful of videos that are not they’re fun to make like my xmax videos, where i bash it into stuff, those videos are fun. I enjoy that kind of stuff. I have a few customization videos that i’ve done not many, but i would like to do more stuff, like that. I i i just felt like i was pigeonholed into making reviews and repairs and that’s, not the kind of content. I want to create it’s, not i don’t want to say it’s not fun, because it is but it’s it’s, not where my passion lies at right, and you can even tell look at my my video with the uh notorious when i, when i change out the wing Mount that video i did not have fun making it. I did not enjoy making it. I had to go gopro on my head halfway through it. I stopped caring about the lighting and getting everything in the light and and i’m not totally proud of that, and i just i don’t when i don’t enjoy something i really don’t put a lot of effort into it and that’s, not the kind of content i want To produce now the rest of that video i enjoyed making right, but the repair part of it i didn’t like making. I just didn’t like it and it’s just that kind of of stuff is going to make this channel feel like a job and when it feels like a job i’m not going to enjoy doing it and i’m not going to do it i’m going to start skipping Days and just you know getting away from the hobby and that’s, not what i want.
I want to get the channel back on track of what it’s supposed to be even the name outsourced rc, the idea being that i make stuff, i make custom content, custom, rcs and things like that and that’s. What i want to do – and so you know going forward that’s what i’m going to have to do. You don’t make a popular or a successful youtube channel by making content that caters to a handful of people like repair videos. Very few people watch those review. Videos are typically only interesting to the people that are even considering the rsc unless it’s, something like the ramune. The raminator will probably do well because it’s a it’s, a unique rc it’s, an 80 pound must truck it’s huge it’s gas, powered and people see it, and that one has like a broad appeal. Most rc cars do not have that broad appeal. You have to be doing something interesting, go and look at the videos on rc sparks channels. Look at what videos he puts up. That, though, do really really well they’re, not reviews their videos like they are just you know, they’re adventurous right. They kind of tell a narrative, they tell a story or there’s something very unique they’re. Not just you know, hey hey! This is how you change this axle casing or something like that. It’S. Nothing like that. It’S all! You know really unique and fun stuff to watch that interest, people that are not necessarily into the rc hobby and that’s.
What i want to do not not saying i want to do rc car on rc sparks kind of content, but i want to do my own thing. That is not just reviews and repairs and that’s what i have to do, because i’ve got so much stuff. I want to do, and i just don’t have time and and i’d rather focus on quality and not quantity and that’s what i’ll be doing from now on going forward with this channel. I i did not make a video today rc car video, because i just i had too much to do around the house and now i’m, like you know what i i’ve got to get stuff done around the house and that’s. What i did i cleaned up a lot. I cleaned some stuff took care of some things around the house and i went to a friend’s house and and helped her out with something, and you know i just had some things i needed to do and really sunday is the only day i get off. You know saturday, i’m technically i’m off saturday, but i i get off of work, sometimes six or ten o’clock in the morning i come home, take a nap and i wake up at, like you know, 12 or 2 o’clock or whatever, and then i got the rest Of the day, where i’m, you know trying to get stuff done, and i just don’t have time and and during the week you know when i was producing two videos like like one video would take every spare minute i had during the week.
I’Ve got other stuff. I’M doing 3d uh like 3d printing and 3d modeling. I love 3d modeling and i have a story that i am writing and i’m putting a book together and i’m helping a friend with some filming of a movie that he’s doing, and i have got just so much stuff that i’m trying to do and this channel Is taking all my time and it’s taking a large chunk of money and it’s, just not returning it’s, not just it’s, not returning what i’m putting into it so yeah that’s! You know this. Video is a mess. I’M. Sorry it’s a mess. Have you made it this far into it? Thank you guys so much, but i’ve got to get inside. I’Ve got some work. I need to take care of, and you know i appreciate you guys for sticking with the channel as long as you have, i really appreciate it. It’S crazy. To me. We got 17 000 subscribers that’s, absolutely wild uh. I i i’m not quitting youtube or anything like that. I will be still producing content. Maybe i won’t hit a video every weekend. Definitely not two a week. I will put out as much as i can, but i might not be doing a lot more repair videos and i may i don’t know i won’t be getting every latest and greatest rc from now on, because it’s, just you know, they’re so expensive and they just Are not returning what i’m putting into it, but i i don’t know i’ll still get rcs from here here and there, but you know i don’t know, but one thing i wanted to say the uh.
You know some of the repair videos remember. I said i don’t like doing repair videos necessarily. I actually recorded a video of me repairing no swapping out the differential fluid in the notorious all three differentials. I filmed the whole thing i didn’t like it at all. I didn’t enjoy doing it when i filmed it. It looks like crap, it is it’s such a horrible video. I i go back and look at the footage and i’m like man. I did not care at all when i was making this video and i didn’t upload it. I didn’t edit, it didn’t. I upload it because it’s just a garbage video, it’s, no quality at all and it’s because i just did not enjoy making the video it just wasn’t fun, i’m out here in the sun, you know doing a repair, it’s, just zero, fun and that’s. Why? I haven’t put it out, but yeah i i’m gon na start doing content that i really want to do i’m. Gon na you know still do reviews get away from that. Still do repair videos here and there, but i’m gon na kind of get away from that. Do more custom content stuff like that um? Hopefully you guys enjoy it. I don’t know um, but you know i’ve got to do something different with the channel than what i’ve been doing, because i just you know, it’s, not the goal i have set for the channel and it’s just not sustainable for the youtube channel, just isn’t it, but Anyways uh, have you guys got this far? Thank you so much for watching.
Thank you for subscribing to the channel. Thank you for liking, my videos. I really do appreciate it. I’M gon na you know still work hard and bring you guys the best content. I can thank you guys so much.
