A lot of people are already making money from posting videos on YouTube these days. Well, who wouldn’t be enticed? Every month, this huge online platform gets over one billion users worldwide. If you have more than 1000 channel subscribers and over 1000 views for every video you post (assuming you have multiple videos), you can already make a decent amount of money. From celebrities, ordinary individuals, children to even pets, YouTube has attracted many people to become a YouTuber. So, if you’re thinking of making a living using this online venue, here are a few ways on how to make money on YouTube.
Create Video Tutorials
There are various themes of YouTube content, including fun and entertainment, product reviews, beauty, everyday lives of famous people, and much more. One of the content themes that can potentially make you rich is tutorials. Many YouTubers do different kinds of tutorial videos, as they are informative, educational, and highly requested. If there’s something you can do and others should know about it, then you can share your knowledge by making tutorial videos. The more high-quality videos you post; the more people will consider you as an expert in your field or niche.
Become Affiliate Marketers
Another way to make money with YouTube is to sell products as an affiliate marketer. In a nutshell, affiliate marketers earn commissions from selling other people’s products. Many businesses and companies prepare attractive deals, which they offer to affiliate marketers. In return, these affiliate marketers promote the products (or services) on various platforms, including YouTube. If you are an affiliate marketer, you can post, for example, product reviews or tutorial videos on YouTube, and earn a commission for every lead or sale you make. Don’t forget to include the affiliate links to your products in the description box. By doing this, not only you earn revenue by selling products, but you’ll also get incentives from YouTube if the videos trend and gain many views.
Promote Website or Blog
If you have a website or a blog and you want to make some money out of it, then you need traffic, and one of the best ways to get it is by using YouTube. For example, you can post a video where you present some of the topics discussed in your blog or website, and add a link to it below the video in the description (or maybe even the video’s annotations).
Create Engaging Ads
You can also create engaging paid ads (as seen on other digital advertising platforms such as Ads Supply, Google AdWords, etc.) using YouTube Ads. The challenge in creating ads is that most people would not bother watching the entirety of the video ad. They tend to press the ‘skip’ button and watch other videos that they find interesting. So, make sure that your video ads aren’t focused only on promoting the given product or service, but also provide real value to the viewer so that the audience will watch them to the end.
The most important thing to remember in that making money with YouTube requires producing high-quality content that attracts the users’ attention. The Internet changes all the time, and trends tend to come and go quite quickly. So never hesitate to explore new ideas for your video production, and focus on creating content that’s unique, original, and engaging. The money will follow.
