Earn From YouTube – How To Earn As A YouTuber?
Advertising has always been a part of YouTube, but it has become much more prevalent in recent years. It is one of the most common and popular methods of earning as a YouTuber. All you have to do is link your YouTube channel with Adsense and enable the advertisements on your videos. So every time someone views your channel, you are eligible to receive 55% of the ad revenue. Isn’t that impressive? YouTube keeps the rest of the revenue. On an average, video owners can make $1 to $2 for every 1000 views. And the best part about this is that on YouTube, the more views you get, the more popular your video becomes. And popular videos tend to attract even more views…so it all builds up and you keep earning.
Once you have really mastered the art of “YouTubing”, i.e. creating wonderful videos that people just can’t seem to get enough of, you can upload paid videos. This category of videos is not free to everyone – your audience has to pay you for viewing the videos. What’s great about earning this way is that you get to keep 100% of the revenue. Tutorial videos do pretty well in this section. You can carry out language courses online, share valuable tips and tricks and teach skills like guitar playing, sewing and so on.
In direct promotion, you collaborate with various companies on your YouTube channel. You talk about their products, do demonstrations and review-style videos. You would have to have a fair number of subscribers to be a direct promoter, so you should invest enough effort in promoting your channel on social media and blogs. The more popular you are, the better. In return, you are paid a specific amount of money.
Affiliate marketing is quite similar to direct promotion, except from the fact that you get a commission each time you generate a conversion (e.g.: sales and inquiries) through your videos. You can choose how to promote companies’ products in your own unique and creative way. It’s helpful to develop a connection with your audience through your video so that they are more willing to take your advice and go ahead to try out products. Here as well, you should invest in growing your audience as much as possible.
So, these were the top 4 ways in which you can earn some good money on YouTube. Note that they don’t have to be exclusive – you can earn through any number of these ways at the same time, like advertising with direct promotion.
