Hello, my name Oscar, I'm from Colombia, currently I live in China. I left my hometown long time ago looking for better opportunities. Now that I'm in China and I've visited hundreds of wonderful places in Asia, I've come with the idea of starting a couple of YouTube Channels to show the best of this Region (culture and beauty) and to promote the industry and the tech coming from Asia. I don't want to engage in politics, I want a sincere point of view.
Currently I have one YouTube channel called Asia Updated (check it out), however the profit of that channel is very low, just a couple of hundred bucks (dollars) per month, not enough to fulfill my business dream. Even not enough to support myself yet, lucky I live with friends so I don't need to pay rent yet.
YouTube and other social platforms are great to promote business, industries, places and so on... Plus after some (maybe long) time its very profitable. So I think my business idea is quite good.
In the future if my channels have enough followers I can close deals with sponsors plus the profit from the channels will be better.
My dream y to buy cameras, gear and pay my trip expenses, I want to visit factories all around Asia, I want to visit cultural places, I want to discover the roots of these countries, I want to report all about tech and the automotive industry in Asia and so on... I must to dream big, to have a clear target.
I guess you're wondering why I don't get a normal job as everybody and save money for this... This is not an excuse but... due the Asperger syndrome I have, my communication with others is a total disaster, Its hard for me to have an office job, I cannot be focus and I'm quite obsessive with my ideas.
I'm seeking to get in the amount of $150,000 which will be used to purchase the equipment and start-up expenses. I also need at least 2 employees.
The equipment is mainly 2 cinema cameras, some camera gears, 1 drone, 3 computers and 1 storage server for the footage, fix a small office and pay for some ads, website and so on. It may sound excessive, but the reality is that this kind of equipment is costly.
I run this campaign by myself, this is a person al project and I really want your help...
