Continue Making YouTube Videos

First off, THANK YOU for visiting my gofundme page, and hearing me out: it is incredibly humbling that you're even considering helping to make my dreams a reality!

I have been fortunate enough to pursue my passion of making YouTube videos on my PowerDirector University YouTube channel since 2011.

Although I have a fair amount of subscribers, several factors make it difficult for me to earn enough income to continue creating content:

I do not have hundreds of thousands of subscribers like the big budget YouTube channels and therefore I make much less revenue.
Google Ad-Sense payouts have declined dramatically over the years, while YouTube viewership has increased. 
YouTube's "improved" algorithms unfairly punishes older channels, meaning less than 2% of my subscribers actually see my content.
The man-hours for all of the activities involved with running a one man band small film making business on a social media platform has a low return on investment.

So I'm humbly asking for your support to secure the existence of my channel and allow my subscribers to benefit from my PowerDirector tutorial videos. Your pledge will go towards helping me create content that my subscribers and casual viewers are passionate about, regardless of its revenue-potential. It will help pay for expenses associated with creating videos, video and computer equipment, web-hosting services, and the hundreds of hours I dedicate each month to making quality video tutorials.

If you enjoy what I do and want me to continue creating content to help you make better videos please give whatever you can. No matter how much you give, it will be greatly appreciated. At the end of the day, every dollar you donate goes towards helping you create better videos. I appreciate your support and thank you for your pledge!
