3 alternative methods to creating income from YouTube without Adsense
When it comes to making money from YouTube, you can actually become rich, but it does take a lot of time and effort to do so. The downside of all the YouTube eBooks and marketing methods is that they only show you how to implement adsense. This is good and all because YouTube is owned by Google who owns Adsense. These two systems, YouTube and Adsense, pair together very well but that's not the only way to make money off of YouTube. When someone starts out posting videos to YouTube in hopes to make some money from a few clicks here and there, they think it's as easy as putting up a video and embedding some ads in it... Well it's not that easy. You will roughly make $1.00 per 1,000 views on your video through YouTube, which isn't a crazy amount at all. Sure, if you're getting 1,000,000 views a day then that would rake up $1,000... but it's not likely.
YouTube pays the content creators, you and others who post videos, a little amount per 1,000 views because they can. They didn't have to pay you anything, but they know how much traffic some videos can pull in, so they encourage you to post and make a few bucks from it. This is why I will be going over 3 alternative methods to creating income through YouTube videos
This is actually a pretty popular method to making more money from your YouTube videos. Affiliate marketing is basically selling someone elses product and getting a percentage of the total sale. Digital products like Ebooks, SEO services, etc. will gain you a higher percentage because there's less overhead or production fees. Physical products will pull in less profit but might have a higher selling rate, which sometimes equals out if you're comparing them to digital products. What you'll do is sign up for someones affiliate platform and they will give you a link that is attached to your account. If someone clicks through you link and purchases something, you get credit for that purchase and a percentage of the overall sale.
The 2 Affiliate Programs you should check out:
- ClickBank - Digital products
- Amazons Affiliate Program - Physical products
Now everyone, or almost everyone, knows about amazon and that you can post links aimed at specific products or just send someone through your link and hope they purchase from somewhere on the site lol. But some people may not know about ClickBank, and this is a huge digital product affiliate marketplace where people publish their items and you can advertise for them and get a cut of the money. ClickBank pays out pretty well and they are reputable, so you don't have to worry about that.
Sell Your Own Product
Adsense will pull in a fraction of a cent per view on your video, which won't make you much in the long run. Affiliate sales won't get you all of the profits per sale because the manufacturer of the product gets the majority of the sale. So if you want to make a little more money, you can actually sell your own products.
Depending on your method of sourcing products, or making them, you could increase your measly 4% to 8% commission from Amazons program to 80% if you sell your own products. The only problem with this is that Amazon has a massive marketplace and people are more willing to purchase off of their website because there's more than likely something they will find that interests them. You're limited by how many products you can sell because you can't sell 1,000,000 different products on your own website if you don't own them... Wait, you can
All you have to do is set up an eCommerce website and use AliExpress to load your pages with products. You will have to do this manually since AliExpress is a marketplace, but after a few days or weeks of uploading and editing, you will have an amazing marketplace where you can profit much more than 25% of the sale. I actually have a few websites like this and I don't sell anything under a 100% markup lol. So basically I don't make any less than a 50% commission on each sale
What you'll want to do is start uploading videos to YouTube and give away a decent amount of information that is well thought out and actually helps people. Every few videos you can pitch your consulting services and people will think "Well, if I'm getting this amount of information for free, I wonder what amazing info will be given to me if I pay him?" And that's where you turn a basic viewer into a client
They see you as the expert and authority so they will more than likely pay you to "teach" them about something that you're both interested in.
A lot of people who upload YouTube videos for profit think that you just upload the video and money starts to roll in, which isn't the case at all. You need to work on your videos, build your viewers and subscribers, constantly add quality content and also brand yourself and your video at the same time. You can add in various income streams to these videos, you don't have to just rely on Adsense for roughly $1.00 per 1,000 views.
When it comes to making money on YouTube, there are a few different methods that don't rely on Adsense. You can pitch someone elses product as an affiliate, you can pitch your own product and source it from AliExpress or you can pitch a consulting service and turn your viewers into monthly clients. The route you choose is solely up to you and you alone. No one can tell you what's best for you because you aren't like anyone else
Split test these methods and see which one you like best, then bootstrap it and increase your profits down the road
