Make Money With YouTube
With the internet progressing at break-neck speeds, there are plenty of opportunities to get in on the action. Whether you are a writer, photographer, or YouTube video creator, there are thousands of ways to make money off of your content. For those of us who are looking to make some easy money on the side, or even full time cash at some point, it is important to remember to start small. Often times, we get these huge ideas and aspirations, only to find out how difficult it is to get the ball rolling. In order to be successful, it is important to be realistic with ourselves. What do you want out of YouTube? How much time are you willing to devote to this endeavor?
As you remain realistic throughout the learning process, here are several other tips to help you turn your hours spent on YouTube into a nice revenue stream of easy money.
Advertise With YouTube
One of the easiest ways to make money with YouTube is to become a partner with the company. As a member of the YouTube partnership program, you will be able to monetize and split revenue that YouTube makes off of page views, advertising, and subscriptions. In addition, you can get global marketing with the site as a partner because of the website’s visibility.
There are two routes for doing this. First, if you have a product, YouTube is an easy way to promote your product to a larger audience. You can create a hefty flow of traffic to your blog/website as well, which could also lead to revenue if your website is set up for that. The second way to monetize by promoting merchandise is by affiliate marketing. For example, if you review products in your video and are a member of any program like Amazon Affiliates, you can get a percentage of the sales if buyers use the links you provide them.
Create Engaging Content
One of the most important aspects of making money on YouTube is to remember to create quality content. YouTube has been a platform for hundreds of people to gain notoriety by going viral. Have you ever seen the video of the kid right after he left the dentist? “David leaving the Dentist” garnished over 100 million views, roughly $100,000 for the parents who posted the simple two minute video.
By remembering to keep it simple and plan out your goals before starting on the road to easy money from YouTube, you can be successful. Who knows, maybe some day you we will see you on the growing list of YouTubers who have finally hit it big!
