Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

Everyone is trying to be the next YouTube sensation and get millions of followers overnight.  I'm here to tell you that a massive amount of followers like that doesn't come without you taking some crucial steps prior to even launching your first video on YouTube.  Do you think all of these big names on YouTube are getting millions of followers because they're using an iPhone or Galaxy to record what they're doing and then they just upload it to their channel from their phone?  Nope!  They're taking their time to script out what they're going to say and do, then they record the video, and then the editing comes into play.

Many people start out their YouTube journey and get discouraged pretty quickly because they think "If I record it, they will come" and that isn't true at all.  Look at some of your favorite YouTubers, they have done all of their homework and marketing before even posting a video.  They shot the video with a hi-resolution camera, they edited the video perfectly (or had someone do it), and they did all the marketing as well as the optimization as they posted it to the platform.  Not only that, their interlinking to other social media platforms is always there in order to capture people wherever they can!

You need to crawl before you can run, and that's what I'll essentially be going over here right now Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

First, you'll need a domain, website, and hosting
This isn't actually that difficult to do for anyone of any skill level.  You can simply go over to NameCheap, or any hosting company for that matter, and purchase their cheapest shared hosting package just for starters as well as the domain name of your choice.  The domain will be linked to your hosting account, so you don't have to worry about playing with nameservers or transferring it to somewhere else.  After that gets activated, usually within 24 hours, you can now think about your websites design and how you want it to function. 

Bring in ThemeForest and all of their fancy Wordpress themes to the rescue!  Yes, you can purchase a fully functional website for under $100 and it will look amazing compared to what you can code up yourself if you're not a web designer.  I use WordPress themes all of the time because they cut my costs dramatically and the design time is pretty much non-existent.  What you'll do is search for a newspaper or media related theme that has multiple homepage options so you can play around with what you like.  You'll also want to focus on the themes that give you Visual Composer, or something similar, so you can simply drag'n'drop to design your pages.  No Coding Skills Needed!

After you get your website up and running, you will now need a YouTube channel (if you don't already have one).

Now you'll need a YouTube channel
This is probably the easiest part of the entire process because you're just going over to YouTube and setting up an account.  You'll want to link this to your website, so use an email like youtube@YourDomainName.com so if you happen to sell the business, later on, you have everything linked together already Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

After you have your channel active, you'll now want to customize it slightly, and all you have to really do is add a profile picture and top image to your channel so it's unique. 

Now you'll need something to record yourself with
Don't use your phone or tablet to do the recording, because it will never look amazing.  Sure, it could look good, but it will never be the same as if you were to use an actual hi-resolution video camera.  If you can get something to stabilize your camera when you're moving, go for it, but it's not always a necessity.  You'll also want to invest in a tripod so you don't have to set your camera on a desk and worry about the angles.

This will, of course, cost a few bucks, but if you want to be YouTube famous, it's worth it Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

Now you'll need video editing software
Just doing a quick search on Google for "Affordable video editing software" I knew that Adobe Premiere Elements and Cyberlink PowerDirector were going to be 2 of the best options for me.  Both are under $100 and they don't require a monthly subscription, which is really nice if you aren't 100% sure if you're going to pursue this or not.

After you figure out which editing software is right for you, and your wallet, move on to the next step.

Now you'll need to practice everything until you're great
You won't be great right out of the gates when it comes to recording your videos and editing them, it takes practice, but hopefully, you're patient and can do this over time.  Figure out what settings and filters are best for your videos, then put them into your editing software and play around with them.  You can even use YouTube to watch tutorials on how to make better YouTube videos using your specific editing software!  Talk about a great place for videos!  lol Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

Once you have something you're proud of, upload it and wait for some initial traffic, if you're not getting enough people to your video then move on to the next step below.

Set up a PPC campaign
People are always worried about getting traffic to their videos and how much they will make from it, but they rarely think of how much it should cost to get that traffic.  You can't really do any sort of arbitrage when it comes to YouTube and PPC campaigns, even if you're a YouTube partner, so remove that from your thought process right now.

Instead, think of what you can do legitimately and run a Facebook ads campaign to bring in penny clicks!  Yes, you can get clicks for just a penny and they'll usually be worth it if you have great videos to watch!  You can target 3rd world countries and set your PPC at $0.05 on Facebook, which will drop to $0.04 within a day and eventually get down to $0.01 per click if you're lucky.  Usually, this will take a few weeks, but it's worth it in the end because you can get 1,000 views and some comments for just $10 Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple  Yes, that's much more expensive than what people are selling YouTube views/comments/likes/subs for, but these are legitimate and not a bot that will likely get removed from your statistics.  If you want to play it safe, use legitimate traffic and stop hiring people to send 1,000,000 visitors to your video for $20 lol.


In conclusion
Not everyone will be able to do all of the things I mentioned above, mainly because it takes an upfront investment, and not a lot of people want to take that type of risk on something that might not work out in the long run.  I'm telling you that if you were to take the risk, actually put your time into this like it's something you really want to grow, and you're not taking any sort of shortcuts you can grow your YouTube channel easily and over time you will be successful Building a business using YouTube traffic is simple

Those are good pointers, creating a website and a YouTube channel to promote the site as well as running Facebook ads for your YouTube channel is not only costly but in reality it will take weeks even months before everything is set up and running. Since you need to stock up on videos, creating them really takes a long tme. Getting Legit views is another thing that you must spend a lot of hours in.

I agree that using video in promoting the business is more effective than simple posting of picture and text. One colleague said that the camera of new phones are now competitive with the HD format of videos. However, video editing is not that easy to learn. You might need to undergo a tutorial in order to learn the rudiments of video editing.

Yeah, Youtube can be simple, but people think it's too simple without making the necessary preparations. In addition, when looking at the really popular Youtubers, they are only a fraction of everyone who is trying to get into that platform, so don't expect their numbers to even be similar to your own channel. Set realistic goals and it will take time but set short-term goals you can reach and take it slowly, one step at a time.

I have a handful of websites, I also have a youtube channel. However, I am not using youtube for traffic or promotion. The reason why I have not started using youtube is because I do not have proper skills to make a video. This is one area that I want to explore.
Well, I have tried making videos. When I was writing on hubpages and when hubpages offered video feature, I created some tutorial and travel videos. my video articles were appreciated. However, I never uploaded these videos on youtube.
The tips stated here are useful.

Your video should looks professional to achieve your goal. You should have somehow background on video editing and software. Some of the videos looks waste of time because of the poor quality even give excellent information and content.

As someone who has a decent amount of experience with videography and film editing, I was always interested in starting up a YouTube channel. The thing is that I’ve always felt I’ve kind of missed the boat on YouTube. Like so many fields on the internet, YouTube has become extremely saturated, and getting noticed in just about any niche is going to be incredibly difficult these days.

A lot of people think that it’s easy to make money just doing things like playing video games on YouTube, but to be among those Let’s Players who make thousands every month, you pretty much had to be there when it kicked off around 2012. Now, it’s kind of late for the thousands of aspiring YouTubers with stagnating subscribers and views.

It’s a harsh reality, but true none the less.

All these pointers are necessary for making a business successful and remembered. Indeed, it is not easy to follow all the pointers listed and one must focus more into details. Uploading the first video should look neat, professional, eye-catching and should be focused on details that you want your viewers to know.

Yeah, sometimes the first video can make or break your business as first-time viewers will either love it and subscribe immediately to the new channel, or just forget about it and remember that you put out bad content.

That is indeed true. I think first impression really last. If you were to make a video with a good and interesting content or a video that will be remembered having a bad content, it is all up to you. Either ways, better to think of a video that will have a great impact to viewers for them to subscribe to your channel and wait for the next video that will be uploaded by you.

Yeah, the first impression really lasts. Fortunately, the way Youtube works is that you can get one of your newer videos trending that could attract a lot of new people who haven't watched your old videos, so at least you get a new viewer base, but you have to be consistent with the quality. A single good video won't cut it.

That's definitely the best advertisements, Because a lot of people are using youtube, So if you put ads on youtube there is a lot of chance that the product that you put on that ads will grow fast because a lot of people can see your product.

Yes we can really earn a money in youtube, we can even rely on it even in our daily living if only we become a sensation. Getting traffic is simple and easy to be said than being done it is because we need time and a lot of effort into it just to make a constant traffic. Making one, two, three or more videos in constant and valuable content will also help you to have a good business.

I think some of the product influence videos can be made if you have physical product. Also the service business can be promoted through youtube. I know that it's not that easy to get the views on the video. But if you promote the videos in the right place. I am sure you'd be able to see the difference. And another thing is that youtube can make some really good option for getting the feedback.

I think that Youtube can be used very effectively to earn a decent amount of money if you are good at making videos and editing them. videos are very popular these days and some popular youtube channels are earning a very high amount of income for there owners. this post is like a systematic roadmap if one wants to be successful on youtube. I think if you do your work with a lot of initial planning and you come up with amazing high-quality videos on trending subject then there is a very high probability of achieving success on Youtube.

Featured in the news last night was a Youtuber who earns more than $1,000 per month on his videos. He just makes novelty videos of himself wearing strange clothes. Those short videos have many followers and the traffic to his Youtube channel is consistently growing that maybe in the near future he can earn so much money that he could buy a home and a car. It looks easy but it is always easier said than done.
