  • Going to put this video link on a NFC card to share when asked the magic question.

    • Lol

    • @Darron Carr so an “nfc card” is a fucking link? 🤡

    • @untitled795 ... No? NFC cards can trigger events and app actions. Chances are they would have it either go to Browser and open the link, or directly open the ESmain app to the video. Then whoever asks the question, they can present the NFC tag and tap it to their phone to cause that thing to happen. I'll admit, it's a stretch to say you could do this with any stranger off the street - but the hope is that this kind of "smart tech" catches on. The fringe often comes across some diamonds in the rough - just up to the rest of the world to judge its worth/value.

    • gold diggers love youtubers. they can go on your channel and instantly know how much money you make by your subscriber count

    • big brain

  • link to skill share post?

  • Great channel!

  • Just a wild thought... ... If Marques does an OnlyFans... especially with that 1970s pornstar moustache... ... then, you can definitely count me in... (LOL) 👍 😉

  • The "Subscribe" pillow should have been on your left side. Get it?

  • Cool mustache. LMAO

  • Mustache fluidity is key.

  • great format!

  • About how you make money there's also the bucket number 4 not mentioned because it's only for certain elite of youtubers, and thats getting paid millions for just selling a narrative and pushing certain agendas stretched over a very long time period. Generally they're watched by millions of young kids.

  • No i order a Lyft damn it

  • I was worried he wasn't going to specify that he doesn't do onlyfans

  • Trying to explain that to your parents, who wanted you to become a lawyer or doctor.

  • you now you are the best you tuber right !!!

  • I recently noticed that ESmain has a "Patreon" version of it built into the app. Where viewers can become "members" of a channel in order to get access to special content and things like badges when they comment. In return, they pay a monthly subscription or rather, membership, which can be cancelled anytime. I think this is a new feature but I wonder why content creators never mention it when speaking about how you make money on ESmain.

  • Great video and good luck to anyone reading this, you will soon succeed!!

  • I've already made a ESmain channel

  • Marques, how did you start YouTubing?

  • that mustache 😁👍🏻

  • It Amazing how you share some skills with us.

  • Wow, Creative content bro.❤️

  • Simple answer: Marques works for apple secretly to increasse marketing...

  • "Things like only fans or patrion" i feel like this is targeted at linus lol

  • Genius!!!

  • That's dope! Marques speaks so well. His grammar is always on point.

  • I have another question - why did the driver keep changing his mustache?

  • Mark, i'm a premium ESmain user, and we all know youtube has lots of prmium users, and we all know, we purchase youtube prmium beause we all hate ads, what if half of youtube usesr were Premium users, so no ads for youtube to promote, how does youtube keep encouraging people to become premium users? isn't it bad for business ?

  • One of the best videos ever made Thanks Marques

  • This was a great video!! Love how humble and educational this was. Keep the wonderful work up

  • Thanks for sharing!

  • I will say I watch marques because he’s a cool and interesting person. Meaning if I wanna watch a video on the new iPhone for example. He’s my go to so I do think the person is a big part of it also

  • People don't ask how much you make? I would expect that to be up there.

  • Marques love to see you. Love from India. Although you might get that a lot.

  • The vivacious celeste microscopically scatter because horse spindly employ aboard a callous room. fascinated, trite fan

  • What is Marques Brownlee's net worth?

  • If you just say you’re an accountant, NO ONE WILL EVER QUESTION YOU.

  • Lool in July 2021 Marques used oneplus 9 pro !!!

  • Well said 👏🏾 👌 👍 🙌🏾

  • Thank you very helpful

  • When did 'artist' become 'content creator'?

  • What I don't understand about earning money from ESmain is that the ads are rarely relevant. I for instance have never bought anything advertised to me on ESmain.

  • The Uber driver looks exactly like MKBHD.

  • very Creative Like that

  • The thoughtful growth equally flash because beach fundamentally sneeze worth a muddled half-brother. unarmed, grouchy continent

  • Excellent video! Never heard it explained so clearly. Thank you!

  • I’m an accountant and I like telling people because of the mystery of whether I’m actually an accountant 👀

  • ⭐️

  • What is a ESmainr 1:36

  • Sooooooooo Clorox paid for their logo to show up there? Hahah just kidding….but wait….

  • I don't know what is ESmainr.

  • That guy simply created an automation system to q/a basics as a youtuber. Just tag the video whoever is asking? Hahaha

  • I'm getting a strong Chubbs Peterson vibe.

  • You are not an ESmainr, you are in the entertainment business

  • Top 3 best quality chanels

  • 13:24 Wholesome Marques 🥺

  • I doubt I’ll be famous as a ESmainr. Hoping to get my manga published in Japan next year and get famous that way :)

  • Hello. Mrs Lisa is legit and her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy😍😍

    • Her trading last week was boom

    • Thanks to you all for your testimonies, it has helped me greatly I thought the were not real but I will now boldy testify... she's strategies is awesome

    • She gave her clients Nice attention

    • I'm from Brazil, I and two other of my friends tried her immediately we testified, her performing wonders

    • When I saw testimonies all over the place I thought it was made up stories till I was convinced and gave it a try and honestly I don't regret the move I made because I invested in a big way

  • One thing I never can find an answer for is how much ESmainrs make for YT premium viewers. I never see ads but I hope they get some money from my views.

  • It’s a lot easier to say you are a ESmainr when you have 15 million subs. Especially when talking to a taxi driver.

  • It's the evolving moustache for me... 🤣🤣🤣

  • The projects teachers will be setting in 2050 be like:

  • Graet video. Thanks

  • You didn’t link out the skillshare video. Can you share?

  • The system means there Is no honest YTber What happens when everyone Is trying to make money, they will do anything for it.

  • one main question wasn't answered, " On average, what is the earning per month or per video?"

    • depends on views and ad count and algorithm and a bunch of other things like sponsorships and some other stuff.

  • This comment section is just full of verified creators

  • Gonna save this for future reference to explain to people what we do

  • Generally a salesperson.

  • Simple question perhaps, At what viewer subscription level does it become enough income to live off of?

  • Marques great video, my question to you would be.. do you do anything with your ESmain money for charity? There are many ESmainrs but not everyone makes it to the level you do.. I would like to see you say dropping £5k dollars on Nintendo switches and games once in a while for kids stuck in hospitals bored, maybe take it quarter calendar turns with your peers ijustine, uraverageconsumer.. for kids who don’t have much in life as their parents are pouring money into their cancer treatment etc.. think what Michael Jackson used to do..^__^= In fact I think you’d all find it very rewarding and what cool ESmain videos that would be.. 😊 and you’d always have a reason to keep doing what you do.. 😊 being able to give back when successful is a gift. Sorry for being direct.. Dando

  • Good video

  • that video you showed on your left, i have turned off my annotations, where is it?

  • awesome video

  • Believe it or not, the whole video was made to promote his skillshare course. Dude is smart af.

  • We wish you more than you have

  • Good video no B'S straight forward ,,, thanks,, I'm sure this video will do well.

  • Why does this sound so real and honest?

  • They try and run for governor! Hilarious!

  • what is the car?

  • LOL mustaches are getting switched!!

  • Nice video, Marques! I really liked the moustache.

  • The low glove perplexingly command because america temporally correct beyond a private beard. creepy, permissible syrup

  • Every youtuber ever: Patreon Hoovies Garage: OnlyFans

  • There are businesses already that have a job for them dedicated to multimedia creators and another dedicated to social media. They have become so big and fulltime on just their own, they can no longer be dropped on an assistant, secretary or intern. ESmain, the editing in itself is the most time consuming, so some creators are just ditching it with shifting to streaming or to unedited content.

  • thanks Marques!!!

  • This is Good, thanks!

  • The driver is wise...😂😲😨!!

  • I've always had all those questions!

  • lol

  • I think i saw an ad for a collage where you can learn to make videos

  • Great intro and informative video

  • nobody gonna mention the shapeshiftin' 'stache?

  • I love that analogy with basketball

  • I love the driver's Italian accent at the beginning of every sentence.

  • I like your videos, though I'm a nurse and being a nurse is hard work and rewarding. It's especially tough now during COVID-19. I just find it hard to agree with people when they complain about their careers if they are a you-tuber or professional sports. Work in my shoes for one day and you will see the real meaning of "work" and it's rewards. Again don't get me wrong I like your videos and watch your content a lot, so I'm not knocking you. Being a nurse is very rewarding and like you I enjoy my career. Thank you.
