You have probably heard stories about people making money from YouTube and wondered how you can do it. At the start it may sound unrealistic, but after you give it a try, you will be surprised by the result. The following are the best-proven methods for earning money from YouTube.
Monetize your videos with the YouTube partner program
After you have created several videos of whatever length, join the YouTube Partner Program. This means that you will be allowing YouTube to place ads to your videos. By so doing, you will acknowledge that there are no copyrighted materials in your video. The process takes just a minute to set up, and YouTube will select ads to be shown on all your video and then you can start earning a portion of the revenue.
Make videos, any videos.
You have to realize that, by just setting the monetization up, money will not start flowing quickly. You will have to make as many videos as possible. The better side of it is that it can be any video. Make one minute video that has some humor in it, talking about anything, and upload it. With time, you will start receiving revenue from the videos.
Set annotations to link to iTunes
Once your account is monetized, you can enable annotations that will provide links to Google Play, iTunes, and other websites. You can achieve this by just enabling the annotations and adding one to your video. This will instantly create traffic to sell your videos as they will have a greater target of viewers.
Make tutorials to teach your knowledge.
As you will realize, tutorials are very many on YouTube. From anything you know, you can create videos about it, teach others how to do it, and make money from the videos. You can decide to make fashion videos where you post videos that contain the latest trend, create lectures teaching your accounting or drawing skills, as well as videos containing a new dancing style that you gained.
Sell other people’s products as an affiliate marketer.
You can easily make a commission by selling other people’s product as an affiliate marketer. Thousands of companies give attractive deals to affiliate marketers who are willing to market their products. Big companies like eBay and Amazon can pay you a good amount of money if you market their products through your YouTube account. Your YouTube account can also be linked with other affiliate networks like Commission Junction, ShareAsale.com, and Click Bank.
