We all have something that we would love to share with the world. It can be a skill, knowledge, or your lifelong experience. But, wouldn’t it be better, if you can make some extra money while you share your world of knowledge with others? Yes, it definitely will be. The answer is in front of you and you probably were looking at it.
So, the best way to make money while sharing your experience is to become a YouTuber. Also known as an online influencer/content creator- who is playing a very interesting role in the modern world.
YouTube, as you must know, gathers one billion new users every single month. A huge number of people are already making money on it. YouTube boasts one million content creators in its YouTube Partner Program alone.
Let’s understand how it works. Suppose you have a video on your YouTube channel, with every 1,000 views on that particular video, you’ll be able to get an approximate return of $2 – 4 dollars. While you repeat YouTube videos, the view count keeps on increasing. This may not seem like much, but if you consider making 100 videos with 5,000 views each, this will generate you $1000 – 2000 dollars. Which is a decent amount of money. However, a content creator won’t be able to turn on monetization until you hit 10,000-lifetime views on their channel.
With this step by step guide, the aim is to make you eligible to earn money with the comfort of your home. Follow these simple steps, share your knowledge with the world, and make money from the comfort of your homes.
Use affiliate links on YouTube
If you have a YouTube channel; promoting affiliate links can be a massive earning opportunity for you. You can use links that offer comprehensive tutorials on a distinct subject. For example, if you recommend a product and a user who clicked on the link from your video to buy, you’ll start earning commissions. Make sure you place that link in the first few lines of your video description and mention the product in your video.
Posting affiliate links on YouTube is almost like promoting affiliate links on your blog. Thus, you should try not to overdo it, whenever it is possible. Because first, you have to make a rapport with your potential customers so they can trust you and buy from your links.
To gain the trust of your audience, teach them to solve concrete problems with your tutorials – become a reliable source. As a reward, you can design videos that offer solutions you have earlier achieved yourself.
Learn to earn from ads
This should go without saying, for many YouTubers, generating revenue from ads is the most beneficial revenue source.
As a YouTube partner, you can make money in several ways. You can make money from ads before your videos, your channel subscriptions, or Google AdSense.
However, there are a set of rules that you need to follow first. Apart from following YouTube’s ad rules, you must amass a minimum of 4,000 video watch hours on your channel in at least 12 months and should have at least 1,000 subscribers.
There is no physical timeline or format to get these foundational 4,000 hours of watch history. But, what you can do is, you can use the YouTube video looping methods, which will keep repeating the videos automatically to increase the watch count of your channel.
So after accomplishing this gigantic task and earning your place as a YouTube Partner, you can start earning from ads.
The next thing you need to do is, select a green “$” next to your videos. With this, you can now click on the YouTube monetization option.
YouTube Premium is delivering its users an exceptional sophistication by removing ads for viewers for a monthly fee. YouTube still manages to support creators by paying based on their percentage of total watch time.
Request your fans to fund you
Another effective way to make money on YouTube is by being honest with your fans or subscribers. For many, honesty is one of the biggest virtues. You can use it for your good by simply requesting your fans to fund you if they like your YouTube content.
In case you have built a loyal fan base, encouraging them to crowdfund your channel can help you make new and well-researched content.
As long as your content is new and unique you have a great probability of generating funds from your fans. You would be amazed at how your subscribers are willing to appreciate your content even more.
