Who else wants to make money on YouTube? People who are already well-established online, as well as those who have only created online content in the past few years. There are so many people out there that want to make money on YouTube, yet are intimidated by the process of actually doing it. Let’s talk about some of the things you can do to make money on YouTube and get the results you’re looking for in a matter of days, not weeks or months.
The most important thing that you can do is join an ad-share program. The YouTube Partner Program is how most typical YouTubers have access to extra features on this massive platform. You don’t have to be an official partner just to earn money with YouTube (although having an AdSense account will make it much easier), but being an affiliate increases your chances of earning a lot more than you’d get from just plain adding an ad to your existing website. If you own an AdSense account, you can start creating high quality YouTube videos about topics that are closely related to your site or blog, and you’ll get a nice stream of targeted traffic that will most likely convert into leads and sales. If you don’t own an AdSense account, it’s still possible to create great quality YouTube videos that attract lots of subscribers, and this is the fastest way to make money on YouTube.
Another thing you can do to make money on YouTube is to get a good plugin for your blog or website that allows you to display Google ads on your pages. There are a couple popular plugins that allow for this functionality. The plugin I’m talking about is called PayPerClick, which you can find at the Google Webmaster Tools section. This plugin displays ads on your website based on the keywords in your meta tags. You have to configure how many ads are displayed, but the whole system works very well and usually only requires you to enter the names of your products or services rather than creating ad html codes. For many people, this method of monetization on YouTube works very well, especially since their audiences tend to be very targeted and their attention spans are quite long.
If you don’t have a pay per click plugin for your site already installed, you can still earn money with YouTube by purchasing ad space on your own site. You can purchase single ads or several ads, depending on how much time and effort you want to invest. Some of my clients make money with this method every single day, and it can be a great complement to their other income streams like Google AdSense.
If you already have a YouTube account, you might want to think about promoting an affiliate program through it. An affiliate program with YouTube provides you with yet another way to monetize your website or blog. Just as with using YouTube’s own ads, you can place Google ads or text links within your YouTube videos. And just as with using AdSense, the more popular your videos become, the more revenue you’ll realize. As long as you have a valid affiliate link, which can be easily verified by Google, you can begin to make money with YouTube via affiliate revenue.
If you have a website or blog that already generates traffic, you can make money with YouTube by getting people to click on your YouTube buttons. Every time someone clicks on one of your YouTube buttons, you make a little bit of revenue. To do this, you need to have a functioning YouTube video player on your website or blog. Typically, this means having an embedded Video widget on your blog or website. However, you can also choose to add a small snippet of code to your html that automatically plays the video when a visitor loads your page.
Another way to make money with YouTube is through the sponsored content option. When you register an account, you can choose to allow sponsored content in your videos. This means that whenever someone watches one of your videos and clicks on an ad from your sponsored content area, you get paid. The revenue is added to your account on a regular basis, and you only need to make a single video for this to work.
The third way to make money with YouTube is through the t-series format. YouTube t-series are smaller than average in terms of duration, but they still generate large amounts of revenue for you each month. T-series are stand alone videos that generally have been endorsed by famous or noteworthy individuals or companies. Because of the high demand for these types of videos, there are literally thousands of people making money with YouTube revenue through endorsements in their videos each month.
