HOW TO MAKE MONEY AS ARTIST
Don’t rely on growing as animator on YouTube or having a popular website with ads, sell your artwork as merchandise and products and use your social media and YouTube content more as a marketing platform just like you would television.
Use Patreon, Affiliate Marketing, Offer Commissions, Sell Merch, and Leverage Ad Revenue.
HOW TO GROW ON YOUTUBE AS AN ANIMATOR
You need to upload 3-5 times a week. Yes its hard to do purely on animation, so create help content as tutorials…. create hub content as behind the scenes and world building videos (think wonderful world of Disney). Optimize your videos using Tubebuddy. Use your social media to elevator your brand. Make compilation videos of your animated shorts.
BUILD YOUR BRAND AS AN ARTIST OR ANIMATOR
Use Facebook and Instagram to grow your brand by uploading videos directly, don’t focus on YouTube traffic. Build a facebook group for your fans. Get your fans to share your artwork in social media and Reddit! Consider creating a webcomic even if it is once a week. Keep an online sketchbook showing what you are working on from time to time or put this behind a pay wall like Patreon.
