My Journey into the GAMING Industry… Business!! Day 54

18 min readMar 7


Hi Guys

Here is the update for the last few weeks

I live in South Africa and there is a problem with the electricity provider (ESKOM)!!

However in my new office we now have an inverter and battery pack. I should be able to get more work done with little downtime!!…

Firstly, I need to address the matter of why I have not been online…

I have moved to my new office, and today 07/03/23 is now the first official day of work.

I will be moving again sometime in the future as the space is not big enough, but for now it will suffice.


14/01/23 — I got a new subscriber yesterday, I hope that continues for each day here’s to hoping that it does!!..

Well, here is today YouTube updates!

9:48 — Here is my first YouTube post, which I just published.


YouTube is getting some fantastic new features, which is great for me.

Here is a video showcasing all the upcoming new features:

Moreover, a few new features have been introduced, and the “Monetization” tab has been renamed to the “earn” tab.

17:38 — I’ve started to turn a few videos into shorts today to see if the channel will also benefit from that kind of content.

I’ll test it and let you know. (07/03/23 — Yes , shorts do help aid in a channel’s expansion; more will be said about this later; but if you have a channel, start generating videos as they are really helpful for channel growth.)

16/01/23 — I reached a new milestone today, on the Red Head Gaming Studios YouTube channel.


But because this channel is taking too long to gain popularity, I’ve been concentrating more of my efforts on my gaming channel, which has been paying off.

I also received a fantastic new comment.

Here it is:


Moreover, new subscriber was added today, bringing the total to 18 subscribers.

18/01/23 — I just uploaded my first short to this channel today.

The short video can be found here:

19/01/23 — Milestone

After 90 days, the status is as follows.

Total views 8330

Watch time 148.7

Total number of subscriber is 18.

20/01/23 — Today, I got an email from Microsoft concerning the automation I created for Medium, which was supposed to create an article for every new video submitted to the channel, but isn’t working at 10:23.

I must now create a new one and hope that it will work.

10:25 — I recently completed creating the new automation, and I must now test it.

12:47 — New milestone for the last 60 mins is 555 views!!

The highest in a 60-minute period… thus far!!

12:52 — Views at this time

Highest is 806!!

Most viewers are watching shorts

13:00 — Milestone

Within the past 60 minutes, 985 views.

Reaching a peak of 990 views (no picture)

985 views in a single hour

More than 5,000 views in the previous 28 days!!

And during the last hour, it has gained 22 subscribers, surpassing the 20-subscriber milestone.

21/01/23 — So these are the milestone hit…

Time: 12:27

First achievement:

The channel has already crossed 10,000 views with a total of 10,483 views during the channel’s lifespan, and this occurred before the end of the month, which was when I had set my goal to be. But, I now need to determine what my next goal should be for this month’s end; perhaps 12,000 or more should be feasible. For subscribers, I have thought about this but still need more data on this to give myself a good goal to attain; I will update this at a later time.

Second major achievement:

The most views in a single day (1814).

The closest to 7,000 views in a 28 day period (6916 views).

Almost 1,000 views in a single day!

Third major accomplishment:

13.6 hours of watch time

For one day, more than ten watch hours were reached and completed.

The fourth major accomplishment: (For shorts)

Over 1,000 views in a single day, totaling 1265.

There are now just 7 short videos online, with 37 likes on them. (Thats a lot!!)

The final major achievement:

There have been 2162 views in the past 48 hours, which is over 2,000 views (Time 12:35)

The highest thus far!!

New milestone

15:00 — I just noticed this right now

During the last 48 hours, I have the lowest views count of a day at 8 views this means the lowest number of views during an hour is now 8 views which is not that bad and shows good growth on this channel.

I have just looked at the data and have noticed that I’m almost at 10 views an hour which means that at the end of the month, I should have about 14 500 views total so the new goal is 15k views at the end of this month.

23/01/23 — Just received this today!

New milstones:

Reached a new milestone with over 1,000 views on both one video and one short.



God of War Ragnarök — The Lake of Nine Buried Treasure


Mad Max Killing Sniper 26 #Short

These two videos have surpassed 1,000 views, which is a fantastic milestone to attain.

13:03 — I was startled to learn that it reached a new peak with today’s update (a new milestone hit)

The most views to date is 3055 in one day… Thus far!!

Moreover, watch time is the highest at 16.4.

Yesterday, 7 people in total subscribed to the channel.

Increasing the amount to a total of 30 subscribers.

Before the end of the month, I will have virtually reached my goal of 15k views.

I am confident that I can reach that goal quickly, as it only need 853 views. As a result, I won’t set any new objectives until I can assess the true growth of this channel.

This truly makes me glad to see how well I’m doing and expanding; thanks to everyone who enjoys and watches my material! Each goal is being hit and passed by a lot to even make a good enough goal to hit!

And almost at 200 watch time!!

25/01/25 — So, there are a couple milestones today, but first, allow me to share a cool comment I received the day before.

Here it is:

You can find it here:

I believe this is the first short video I have received a comment on, which is fantastic.

First achievement:

I’ve already reached 15k in just 28 days.


Over 20k views on this channel since it launched, so we’ve already surpassed our 20k goal for the month.

The next milestone:

The highest watch time for a single day at 20.8.

I also have new subscribers, but I won’t update this till I reach the 50-subscriber mark.

26/01/23 — Although I will reach this 20k by tomorrow or so, I have set a new goal for the rest of the month, which is 22,500 views.

This will be a new objective for the month’s conclusion.

The number of views is currently 19 860.

27/01/23 — A new record, the first video to receive 2,000 views

God of War Ragnarök — The Lake of Nine Buried Treasure

Here is the link to it:

28/01/23 — Nothing major today, but I made a rumble account and am testing it out. I added my YouTube channel, and it is currently busily synchronizing the videos onto it, but it appears that this process will take a while.

If anything comes of it, I’ll update this later.

Here is a link to the Rumble account if you like you may Subscribe to it:

(07/03/23 — So far this account is doing well but its taking far to long to sync all the videos, but it is growing slowly, also my videos are monetized and I am hoping to start earning some money from this platform!! Will update on this at a later date…)

30/01/23 — I recently posted a new video, and I just received a new comment.

Here is a link to the video:

31/01/23 — Today new milestone, just received this:

Have already surpassed 26k views, and the day is not even through.

Although today is the last day of the month, my objective for the day is to reach and surpass 27,000 views.

I am very happy that I have already surpassed all of my prior goals, so even if I don’t reach the 27k target, I won’t be upset about it.

And I believe this sets a new record as well.

Almost 4k views in just 48 hours is fantastic to see, and I’m thrilled about it.

Over 21k views in total throughout the course of this 28-day period is a new record.

03/02/23: Well, yesterday was a terrific day for growth. There were many comments and many new subscribers (65 total subs).

Several new comments on the video (all good)

Here is how it appears.

Link to the video:

New record: over 5,000 views in 48 hours

Milestone: Received more than 5,000 views yesterday!

15:22 — These are the statistics from last month, which I just calculated:

15:34 — Just reached 6k views in 48 hour period!

16:37 — Working on a 4k HDR thumbnail because I’ve upgraded to a new 4k display monitor.

05/02/23: I just received this!

I’ve already reached 36k, though:

New milestone: 70 subscribers total!!

So I calculated that at 700 views a day, I should get roughly 20k views for this month alone. Nevertheless, I know that I will receive more than 20k views at the end of this month, but this is just a rough estimate.

By the end of this month, I anticipate reaching 60,000 views.

That’s the goal for this month!

07/02/23 — Well, today was somewhat amusing.

I created an account on Twitch after seeing several great features in the new Hogwarts game. But, as I have never used Twitch before, I still have a lot to learn about how to use it and set it up.

15:48 — I just finished making a YouTube post that I had intended to create earlier, so here it is.


16:22 — I just reached 80 subscribers, however this could still drop. The big accomplishment here is that I have now exceeded 75 subscribers, which is the threshold at which my primary channel is stuck.

The main channel is as follows:

Hence, passing this mark is now actually something of an accomplishment for me because I struggled so much to do it.

I’m excited about this and grateful to all of the subscribers who have helped make it possible. I’ve also turned this into a post for all of my YouTube subscribers to see.


16:44 — another excellent comment

It’s located here:

12/02/23 — Another fantastic message today

Located here:

13/02/23 — Yesterday had reached a significant milestone of over 100 subscriptions, which is a remarkable accomplishment.

Another fantastic accomplishment is that I have been able to acquire a new subscriber every day for the past seven days.

My Monitoring of the youtube channel:

My objective for this month is to reach 200 subscribers by the 15th of the following month, which means I need roughly 3 subscribers per day.

In order to achieve my goal, I will have to put in a lot of effort.

(07/03/23 — Unfortunately, I had not been able to hit this goal as I have now moved to a new area. As the move has taken up all of my time!!)

14/02/23 — I received a new comment

Here it is:

It’s located here:

15/02/23 — So, today I reached 110 subscribers, and I’ve been receiving new subscribers every single day, so this is a fantastic accomplishment that I’ve now been able to accomplish!

Beginning at 82 on February 8 and continuing to this day, February 15.

It’s fantastic to see how the overall number of subscribers who have joined in the past week increased by 28, (almost 30).

16/02/23: Yesterday, another comment

located here:

In order to move on Sunday (19/02/23) and receive the packages on Monday, I must pack up my computer and everything else today. Hopefully, everything goes as planned.

(07/03/23 — During this time I have not uploaded many videos and the channel has suffered for it; its been growing but not at the pace it should be.

As you can see the channel has stopped getting as many views as it should have, but I will be back at it soon…)

22/02/23 — There is a lot to accomplish, but the computer is back on today and in a new location and office, so I’ll get to it as soon as I can.

Nonetheless, a lot happened throughout my relocation!

I’ve received a lot of positive feedback and a lot more subscribers; I’ll update this as I get the opportunity in the future.

However, everything is going well, moving boxes and other items, as well as setting up the internet and cable connections, has kept me far too busy to keep up with anything else.

23/02/23 — This is some fresh information that I’ve recently received on YouTube, which I just viewed today.

When I’ve finished catching up on work, I’ll update more on this!

01/03/23 — Yesterday had another excellent message is as follows:

Here is the link to it:

The pictures below show my temporary office (in the Kitchen):

Is there still a lot of work to be done!!

Picture above is on February 24th (Friday).

Still need to get a standing desk… (Will show pictures of it later on)

Many other items must be purchased and assembled; I will provide pictures…

The next day…

The desk was being constructed on Tuesday, February 23rd, (yesterday).

By that evening, it had been constructed, but as you can see, cable management was still needed.

More to come!!

What is a standing desk!!???

From Wikipedia…

A standing desk or stand-up desk is a desk conceived for writing, reading or drawing while standing up or while sitting on a high stool.

My desk is both a sitting and standing desk…

Here is a video on it what it looks like:

07/03/23 —

A bit more work is needed (cable management) but the pc is ready to start work!! I will be moving into a bigger office sometime in the future and so I will only make the cable managment better here.

I have run into a problem with the automation for Medium and so I have to change tactics…

I understand that this may seem like a lot to ask, but if you are enjoying my content, I’d really appreciate it if you subscribed to my channel and followed me.

But I have been able to start moving the ball in the right direction…

If I can keep this up the ball will start to move on its own which I hope by next month it will…

“Anyway, do that and you’ll start seeing great follower growth. It’s true that a lot of those followers won’t interact with your stuff- but don’t think like it’s supposed to be everyone reading everything. That’s silly. Instead, think about it like advertising- they’re all now going to see your articles from time to time on their feed. That’s free advertising. If 10 people out of every 100 click, be that’s a 10% conversion rate. In advertising, 10% is pretty standard. Don’t think small- reach for 10,000+ followers.”
