Two main techniques exist for earning money on YouTube. You can either promote affiliate offers or start a successful YouTube channel. Either way, you really have to know what you are doing. There are certain steps you can take to almost guarantee your success. Let’s take a look at how you can earn money on YouTube without facing any hurdles.
1. Earn Money by Staring a YouTube Channel
People with hundred dollar HD camcorders can now start their own channels on YouTube and start earning money very quickly. In order to be successful, a person’s channel above all, needs to be interesting and educational, or if you prefer, funny. That’s right. In order to be successful on YouTube, you are required to either teach your audience or entertain them. For example, some people have channels on how to apply makeup, others like to discuss new technologies, and yet others love being funny by dancing in public or doing cruel pranks. Regardless of what they do, since you are a unique individual with unique ideas, don’t try to be successful with their ideas. Do what you love or what you know about. So, if you are great with cards, have a channel on how to be a successful poker. If you are great at stand-up, do that. Do whatever.
Once you start getting exposure, people will start subscribing to your channel. Remember that there is no need to spam YouTube, if people are interested, they will find you. Once you have about a few thousand subscribers, become a YouTube partner and after you get accepted, you can earn money whenever a person watching your video clicks on Google Ads.
2. Promote Affiliate Offers
Don’t spam. This is absolutely a big no-no. If you spam, your success will be short lived. Earning money from affiliate offers on YouTube can be very tricky. The first and most important rule is to never use direct affiliate links. Some people do earn money by using direct links, but their success is almost always short lived. The trick to earning money on YouTube from affiliate links is having a review website or a blog. This is where you would send your audience to buy affiliate products. Sending your audience to a blog or a website that you built is the smartest thing you can do, because for one, YouTube won’t think you are a spammer and you’ll also have the ability to build an email list by capturing the email addresses of your highly targeted audience. That’s it.
Good luck friend!
