Ever since starting my YouTube channel for Ultimate Reloader, I’ve been *really* underwhelmed with the earnings YouTube ads bring. It’s a fact that YouTube doesn’t pay well, but when you’re a shooting sports channel, things are really pathetic. Add to that recent political blacklisting and demonetization issues related to YouTube, and things just get worse. So I’ve decided to pull YouTube ads, which means I’ll make ends meet in other ways. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time, and decided not to wait any longer!
After telling myself “these ads aren’t worth it” for years, it feels good to move forward with this change. I hope this move translates to a better viewing experience for the shooting community, and I appreciate all of the support that you all have shown me over the years. I have a lot of exciting new partners, projects, and stories that I’m working on, and hope this change will help accelerate the future of Ultimate Reloader.
