Welcome to this ultimate guide on how to make money with Youtube. This post will walk you through the steps of setting up your own channel, growing an audience and monetizing your content.
How to Make Money with Youtube
As you know, YouTube is a video sharing website that allows users to upload and watch videos. It’s also one of the most popular websites in the world, with nearly 2 billion monthly active users and over 1 billion hours of content being watched on it every day. With so many people using the site, there’s no wonder why creators are making a killing from it!
As an aspiring YouTuber, you may be wondering how to make money from your channel. There are many different ways to monetize your channel including ads on videos (which we’ll discuss later), sponsorships and affiliate marketing (we’ll also cover these later). For now let’s focus on ads on videos because they’re by far one of the most popular methods of monetizing your channel.
Best Ways to Make Money on YouTube
There are a number of ways to make money on YouTube. Some are easy, some require work. Here they are in order from the most passive to the most active:
- Create and upload original content
- Promote products & earn money through affiliate marketing
- Brand deals (brand sponsorship or product placement)
- Sell branded merchandise
- Advertise for other YouTubers/Businesses
Create and upload original content
YouTube is an amazing place to find great videos, but you can also use it as a platform to share your own creations with the world. To do this, upload regularly and consistently, make sure your videos are unique and interesting, and use keywords in both the title of your video as well as its description.
If you’re uploading instructional content or tutorials about how to do something (like make slime), connecting with people interested in this topic will help you get more views on YouTube! And if someone else is already producing similar content, try adding something new: an alternative method or another take on the subject matter could bring some freshness into the mix that people would appreciate seeing from someone else who’s also passionate about crafting!
Promote products & earn money through affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is a powerful way to make money with YouTube. You’ll earn a commission every time someone buys something you’re promoting. All you need to do is include a link in one of your videos, and when people click on it and buy anything from that retailer, you’ll receive payment for the sale.
You don’t even have to create content about the product or service; simply include a link at the end of your video directing viewers to where they can purchase whatever item you’re highlighting (usually through an affiliate link). Then just sit back and wait for the checks to roll in!
Sponsorships and brand deals
Now that you’ve got your audience and you’re making great content, it’s time to make some money!
To start, let’s talk about sponsorships and brand deals.
When a company wants to advertise their product or service on your channel, they have to pay for that privilege. The amount of money can vary based on the size of your audience, but as a general rule of thumb most channels will make between $100-$50k per year from these deals. It’s important not to take these sponsorships lightly however; brands tend to be very particular about how they want their products presented on YouTube so watch out for any requests similar in nature as those mentioned above and always ask yourself if they would be beneficial for both parties involved before agreeing on any terms at all!
Sell branded merchandise
If you’re creating a brand and have your own merchandise, you can use that to make money on YouTube. You can sell your own branded merchandise directly through your channel or through an online shop like Teespring.
However, if this isn’t something that’s currently in the works for you, there are still other ways to make money with branded products on YouTube. To start off, we’ll go into how to create a website for selling your merch and how to promote it.
Advertise for other YouTubers and businesses
You can also advertise on YouTube, but you’ll need to find a YouTuber who will agree to run your ad. This is different than promoting or sponsoring a video: advertising is when you pay a YouTuber to run your own advertisement in their video.
You can choose which channels you want to advertise on by finding videos that are similar in content and audience size to yours. Try using the categories section of YouTube (under “Advanced Search”) or check out SocialBlade for more options. Once you have selected the correct channels, it’s time to create an ad that will be successful for both parties involved!
Make money with YouTube by uploading original content, promoting affiliate products, securing sponsorships, and creating branded merchandise.
Once you’ve gained your first 10,000 subscribers, it’s time to start making money. If you want to make money with YouTube, there are four main ways:
- Uploading original content
- Promoting affiliate products on your channel
- Securing sponsorships from brands and companies who want to advertise with you
- Creating branded merchandise that fans can buy directly through your site
