I didn’t want to roll out any of these changes without being totally open & transparent with you first. Over the next 6 months you’ll see me experiment with a few different things from turning on ads to incorporating sponsors in different ways. I may decide at the end of this period to go back to my original model (only with less content & a more manageable workload). But I need to trial this out to see if it’s both effective and something I feel good about. I’m really proud of this channel & excited about stepping these videos up a notch in the coming months. Thanks for making it all possible.

If I'm honest, I mainly watch Broadway and minimalist videos on NOburn, having a thirty second clip of Hamilton West end isn't the end of the world. I watch them all of the way through 😂

Since your announcement the advertising clips in the beginning of your videos seem pretty much out of your control? Seems like with good intentions you opened the door for youtube to misuse your channel for wild advertising from all branches. Or is this something outside your control?

Kudos D'Avella! I watch your videos before I start studying. I don't really care what the subject of the video is. There's a sense of motivation seeing you which helps me tackle my day more efficiently. And that will continue to happen even with ads. Respect your transparency.

It's absurd to be expected to do any work for free.. especially if one is doing this full time! let alone incredible work such as yours :) Put ads on man, I actually am curious to see what companies would sponser your work, I bet audible will be the first to give an offer :D Keep up the good work, I hope you make loads of money off of this, this content absolutely deserves it :) :)

While I appreciate ad free content, it isn't sustainable long term for anyone who wants to grow and to be better. Do your thing on your terms and grow. Pretty safe to say from the comments, your viewership is behind you.

Hi!! I’ve been a loyal fan for a while now and I really enjoy your content, including the podcast. I’m waiting until I’m debt-free to become a Patreon subscriber. I 100% believe people should be paid for their work and you provide useful and insightful information. Thank you for always being transparent and for trusting us enough to open up to us… By the way my 10-year-old daughter digs you, as well LOL! She especially liked your video on quitting caffeine for a month, ha ha silly thing thought it would be a good 30 day challenge for ME. Ummm No way! But it was very entertaining watching you go through it, I must say!So that says a lot that you can even reach such a much younger audience.

Amazing work dude! You should put some financial pressure off your back to develop as a content creator. If that would be good stuff presented on the channel go for it with no guilt. Thanks again for this channel.

I can bear to see advertising, each one of your videos is worth it, you edit God level, as soon as I have the economic possibility I subscribe to the patreon, you are for me the best youtuber. PDT / subtitle the videos in Spanish we will thank you quite a lot, you will also get more hearing.

For what is worth Matt. I like Ur stuff a lot. But will probably never let u monetize on me through Patreon or products u may sell. However u absolutely deserve monetisation for Ur work. So I am most happy to see adds, affiliate this & affiliate that in Ur videos so that u MAKE MONEY. You deserve it man.

Look I like the message of what you guys do, you and all the other ppl, I know that you need to get your message out there but it's clear that to be able to live you kind of need to sell something. The minimalists are selling some kind of subscription based newsletter, you are introducing advertising. It must be really hard to be selling your idea and explaining why you do what you do. It reminds me a bit of Plato's philosopher kings actually. Where there's a whole class of ppl who just get a salary to do what they want and relate it to everyday life.

I'm genuinely happy that Matt is monetizing his content, the videos are too good for him not to make a profit out of! He's definitely not poor but he deserves it.

I wouldn’t mind seeing ads in your videos they don’t really bother me so go ahead and put ads in your videos because you shouldn’t be expected to work for free.

YouTubers with really poor quality content have monetized their channel through ads (some in fact are only driven by the money). With your valuable content and genuine intent to help others, you are more deserving to reap the benefits of YouTube ads. Claim it!

Biggest takeaway from this video:
"I think advertising can get ugly when you short change your long term values for money."
Excellent video as always Matt. I look forward to the next 6 months and beyond.

friend, you need AD's, it's only 5 seconds, it's a fair price that we pay to see your videos which have a great quality. Do not be modest, charge your work, it is very good, I know of perfection and your videos are full of it. Be calm, no one of us could be angry that you monetize your videos, it is the most normal thing in the world, but you are still noble to have come here without any publicity. I RESPECT YOU
