      Hello Justin,

      I enjoyed your video about making money on YouTube.

      I have just started a new channel, but haven’t uploaded any videos yet.

      What does my video status have to be to put your ideas in place?

      Do I wait to upload videos and get subscribers and views before I use your ideas or can I start making money from the beginning before my videos are even uploaded?
