YouTube Strategies: 8 Ways to Make Money Online
It's no secret that YouTube is one of the biggest platforms in the world to publish your videos and get seen by the masses. It's actually a platform that has made people successful, like Justin Bieber, and they've had extremely profitable careers simply by posting a few YouTube videos of themselves doing something they loved. Now, you may not be the next Justin, but that doesn't mean you can't cash in on YouTubes traffic!
There are plenty of ways to make money online, but there are 8 main ways to do it through YouTube, and that's what I'll be covering within this discussion. Your level of experience doesn't matter, you just need to read how to do something, then implement it as well as you can. No one got rich because they just did something without doing research prior, they did everything possible and then started their strategies.
Below are the 8 main ways you can make money by using the immense amount of YouTube traffic, and they are:
Sell your own products
If you have something for sale online, whether you make it yourself or have it produced, you can definitely use YouTube to sell it. You can record tutorials on how to use your product or you can simply talk about the niche you're in and get people to your videos. If you're linking within the description just right, you'll get traffic for as long as the video is on YouTube.
Linking to your dropshipping website
Don't have any products of your own? Not A Problem! You can simply look up drop shippers and set up a website that sells their inventory and you'll just take a commission from it. I personally like using AliDropship to set up a dropshipping website and selling products that way. I can list a bunch of products on my website, because they don't limit you like other drop shipping setups do, and I'll then advertise my website through a YouTube video by linking it in the description.
Use affiliate links
When you go this route, you shouldn't use your affiliate link right on your YouTube video, you should set up an affiliate website and link to that domain and let people click through. This will make you look more legitimate and people won't see a ref= link.
Catch the interest of a channel sponsor
If you start gaining credibility within your industry through YouTube video production, you might start to get people or companies contacting you about a sort of sponsorship. Now, you'll likely have to be producing a lot of videos in order to get any sort of sponsorship, and this is because you'll be talking about your sponsors after every video you post. You'll also be linking to their website within your descriptions, but they'll definitely want to see a lot of videos being posted so they can get more views on their logos as well as their links.
Go offline and get some public speaking gigs
You can actually use YouTube to catch the attention of venues who need public speakers. I've actually been approached a few times about public speaking gigs, but I didn't have the time to fly across the country to attend, and I really wish I set my work aside to go to these public speaking events because I now know I can close a lot of new customers simply by talking with them face to face
Enable Adsense on your videos
With this method, you need to actually have an Adsense account and then link it to your YouTube channel. Just like a website, Adsense will display ads on your videos that are related to your niche/industry, and you will make a small amount of money per click. You might not get rich with this method, but you might be able to build a large enough following that you can make a full-time income pretty easily.
Become a YouTube partner
After you've shown YouTube you're a legitimate producer of high quality videos and you've gotten plenty of views over the last 30 days, you will likely be able to join the YouTube partner program. Once you get into this program, you'll be able to generate revenue simply by getting your videos viewed, which is how a lot of these big influencers are making even more money online
Think outside the box a little bit
No matter what people say is the best strategy to make money on YouTube, there is always something out there that is going to be cutting edge, so you should always think outside the box a little bit in order to bring in even more money that hasn't been tapped into.
Making money through YouTube videos isn't something that is difficult to do, making a lot of money through them is, and that's what everyone is trying to do. No one wants to make $10 a month from posting 100 videos a month. They want to publish 100 videos and make an extra $5,000 a month which will help them make more videos and even more money. If you don't know exactly what type of methods you want to use to make money through YouTube, I'm glad you found this list and hopefully you try some of these out
