Why people are trying to become YouTube famous
We've all heard of YouTube and we know people are being found every single day to be the next pop star or they're found selling something that now every household uses. Since people like Justin Bieber are being found online and are now multi-millionaires, there are a lot of us trying to become YouTube famous in order to achieve those same goals. We may not have the exact same goals, but we want to be the person everyone looks to when they have a question or concern, and that's the real way people can become famous online if they don't have a real skill like playing the guitar or playing the violin.
Not everyone reading this will be posting YouTube videos each day, but they could have posted a few in the past and not been successful with them, but that doesn't mean you should be stopping. You never know when your next big break will be, you just need to keep working and publishing videos, and you will see your views gaining more and more views each time you post and your channels will gain more subscribers each day.
Below are a few reasons you should think of trying to become YouTube famous. If you don't hit millions of views on your videos, don't get mad, just keep working and try to get to that point in a year or in 5 years
They become "famous" of course
When a person is publishing videos constantly in order to be seen as an authority within their industry, they're actually trying to become YouTube famous. There are actually people out there that have gained movie rolls solely from getting found through their YouTube videos. Now, they aren't in mega box office productions like the Avengers, but they are still making $100,000+ for a lesser known movie that comes out with them in it
They gain attention from sponsors
When you're publishing tons of videos each day to YouTube, you may get some views and clicks on your ads, but you're likely going to get contacted by some sponsors wanting you to show their products or services within or at the end of your videos. You will get paid per post that you do or they might just pay you a monthly subscription in order to get in any video you post over 30 days.
Each sponsor is different and they will likely contact you more when you're getting 100,000+ views on your videos. If you're in the right niche, getting the right amount of views, and publishing high-quality videos then you'll likely get someone contacting you in order to partner up and send you some money just to mention their products
They make more money through AdSense
A person who becomes YouTube famous will always make more money through their videos simply from their AdSense ads. This is because they will be gaining more views, and that means more clicks, which will end in more profits at the end of the day. The more someone is making from their videos, the more time they will put into producing great content, and that just means the channel will grow even more over time.
More money comes from more views and that's one reason people are trying to become YouTube famous.
They could get accepted into the YouTube partner program
A lot of people don't really know what this is, because they focus on putting AdSense on their videos, but the YouTube partner program is similar but you don't have to publish ads on your videos anymore.
Getting accepted into the YouTube partner program isn't the easiest thing to do, because you need minimum views per month on your videos and a minimum subscriber count in order to be considered. After you get 4,000 hours watched in the last 12 months and have a minimum of 1,000 subscribers, you'll be able to apply for the program, but the more you have the better it will be for you to get accepted
You will also need to have great videos that aren't too edgy, because if you're going to be in the partner program, YouTube will want you to be the best and also please everyone that is watching.
They can be influencers with authority
A lot of people who are getting to be YouTube famous are influencers within their industry. If they don't have a specific industry, and just target an age range, they will still influence those viewers into buying something or avoiding a specific product.
Businesses are paying millions into influencer marketing because it works, and if you can get to the point where you're a well know face on YouTube, you'll likely get companies wanting to pay you for posts or pushes of their own products. This is similar to a sponsor, except this might just be a one-time payment, it's up to you to build this type of relationship to keep getting paid by the biggest companies in the world in order to get even more famous down the road
People want to become YouTube famous solely because they want to be seen by the masses. Most people who do this just want to be known, and it's likely due to some sort of ego driving them towards fame, but others actually post quality videos to just get the word out about something and accidentally get famous. In the end, it's all about the money, and the more famous you are means the more money you'll make through AdSense clicks, the YouTube partner program, or through sponsors and people paying you as an incluencer.
