How To Make Money On YouTube Simplified
If you’ve ever wondered how to make money on YouTube, then you are in right spot.
First and foremost, YouTube is an absolute goldmine.
Unfortunately for many social media and affiliate marketers, the results don’t always seem to show up.
After all, you just need to make videos and then you get paid money, right?
It doesn’t exactly work that way. So how does it work?
Please read on so that you can have a better understanding about how to make money on YouTube.
Most people think that the amount of money a person earns on YouTube depends on the number of views a certain video gets, but that’s not necessarily true.
See, YouTube doesn’t actually pay users for the number of subscribers they have or unique users or viewers a video gets.
What does pay are the ads you see before a video or posted at the bottom of the screen when you’re watching a video which comes from Google Adsense.
They pay relative to the number of clicks the ad gets and ads earn about $1 for every thousand views for banner ads.
So what that means is that you’d need to hit around million views in order to roll in your first thousand bucks.
Don’t despair though, because there’s a better, more suitable, and more profitable alternative to Google Adsense, which would be affiliate marketing.
If you’re not familiar with affiliate marketing, you can think of it as getting paid when someone purchasing something through your link that you want to introduce them to.
All you have to do is create the video once, drop your affiliate link, and then there’s not much more you have to do once the video is live.
Now that you’re familiar with affiliate marketing, what you’d want to do is pick an affiliate partner. There are a lot of players out there, all willing to pay you for getting people to buy their stuff, but it all depends on what exactly you want to be promote.
In which case, you could go for Amazon or Clickbank (if you’re looking for digital products).
So once you’ve got a product you want to promote and you’ve grabbed your affiliate link, you should then decide what kind of video you want to run.
Doing a review of a product is probably one of the best ways to promote an affiliate offer.
After all, you’re not necessarily selling it as apposed to giving a friendly recommendation of its benefits and people tend to feel more reason to buy it if they can actually see you use it.
Another type of video is a how-to where you use the product and highlight its perks, why it’s unique, and quite possibly how it changed your life (for the better).
Lastly, once you’ve made your video, be sure to put in a final finishing touch of SEO optimization.
SEO optimization is pretty straightforward and only involves additional details at the bottom of the video (in the product description).
And that about does it, that’s how to make money on YouTube without needing to have thousands upon thousands of visitors.
Pretty simple stuff, right?
