Every day, five billion YouTube videos are watched around the world. The success of YouTube influencers of the past has made marketers shift how they can potentially reach their audience, so it’s actually a very relevant dream to have for your own channel. In this post, you will learn how to be a YouTuber and earn money.
How To Be A YouTuber And Earn Money
1. Create A YouTube Account and Channel
This goes without saying but you have to have a channel to make money from it. Your channel is your personal presence on YouTube. Each YouTube account has one channel attached to it. A YouTube account is the same as a Google account, and creating a YouTube account will grant you access to other Google products, such as Gmail and Drive.
Create your account or use your existing one. Add keywords to help people find your channel. You can add keywords by navigating to the Advanced section of your Channel Settings. Make sure that your keywords are relevant to your content.
2. Pick a Profitable Niche
Profitable niches are where the serious money is made on YouTube. Some examples that work well include video games, “unboxing,” how-to and tutorials, vlogs (video blogs), product reviews, weight loss, challenges, “haul” shopping videos, and comedy. There’s no shortage of profitable niche markets for you to choose from.
3. Build Your Audience
Building an audience is key to increasing your monetization. You need people to watch your ads in order to make any money off of them. There is no one secret to getting more subscribers, just make the best content that you can and they will come to you.
Keep uploading content and try to get people hooked. Send your video out on Twitter and Facebook. Share it with people. Distribute it elsewhere on the internet. Subscribers are essential to becoming a partner.
Now that your account is popping, you are now ready to start earning money. There are many ways to monetize your YouTube channel:
- Become a YouTube Partner and make money from ads.
- Make money on YouTube by selling products or merchandise.
- Crowdfund your next creative project.
- Let your audience support your work through “fan funding”.
- License your content to the media.
- Work with brands as an influencer or affiliate.
