How To Make Money Using YouTube

YouTubeIf you are wondering how to make money using YouTube, you have come to the right place. You may have heard about friends making money by setting up a YouTube channel, as many people have taken to YouTube in recent years to supplement their income.   The reality is that it can be done and relatively easily to do; however, to maximize your money making potential, it does require some thought regarding how you approach setting up a YouTube channel and what kind of videos you upload.

How People Are Making Money Using YouTube

First off, let’s take a look at how people are making money using YouTube. Up until now, a person running a YouTube channel made money using YouTube exclusively through advertising that either preceded or accompanied their videos (in a small ad box along the bottom of the video). To make the viewing experience better, YouTube does not include advertisements before or during every video that is viewed. Instead, just a percentage of them include advertisements.   In the end, YouTube keeps 45% of revenue generated by advertisements, while a person running a YouTube channel gets paid 55% of advertising revenue generated by their videos. Not a bad deal!
YouTube Channel

While it varies year to year, a person running a YouTube channel makes about $7 to $8 per 1,000 advertisement views. Do not mistake this for video views. Since advertisements do not run during each video view, it might take 5,000 video views to generate the $7 to $8 in earnings.   It is a high bar to make a few dollars, but not unachievable. If you are creative and come up with video content that generates a lot of views or goes viral, you can make a lot more than $7 to $8 in earnings at a time.

YouTube is in the process of adding a $10 per month subscription service for users that do not want to see advertisements when they watch YouTube videos. The revenue from the subscription service will be shared with YouTube authors at a rate of 55%, which is consistent with the share rate for revenue earned through advertising. Per YouTube, they will pay 55% of the total net revenues recognized by YouTube from subscription fees that are attributable to the monthly views or watch-time associated with the content on a YouTube channel.

Some Tips Regarding How To Make Money Using YouTube

Making Money Using YouTube

Here are some tips regarding how to make money using YouTube. Keep in mind that not all money making opportunities associated with YouTube are directly tied to earning money through the site. YouTube can also be used as a great resource for promoting other online ventures that you have to drive traffic to those sites.

  • Take videos while you travel, especially of places that many people want to visit. You might not think of it while you enjoy a vacation, but there are some excellent opportunities to shoot videos at popular vacation spots and share them on YouTube. Just do not make them too personal. Focus on some of the more exciting and picturesque aspects of the location you are filming.
  • Take videos of your pet. If you have a pet that has funny habits or is just entertaining to watch, why not turn them into a YouTube star? People love pet videos, especially humorous ones.
  • Make yourself the star of your YouTube videos. This approach may not be for everyone, but some of the most successful YouTubers have simply created a following by filming themselves doing things they do every day or ranting about life. If you find the right niche and have an appealing personality, you too can be a YouTube star.
  • If you are adventurous, start a television series on YouTube. This is obviously not for everyone and takes a lot more time and financial commitment than just filming your cat or a personal rant. But, if you are a creative and ambitious person, producing a television series on YouTube could be rewarding both personally and financially.
  • If you have an expertise in a subject matter, put together a tutorial or demonstration in a video. One of the most popular uses for YouTube, besides entertainment, is watching videos to learn how to do something. If you really know how to do something well, such as change a flat tire or braid hair, share it with the world on YouTube.
  • Make a YouTube video that promotes a website that you run or a product that you sell elsewhere online with a link to your site or product. A well-produced video published on YouTube can be a great way to drive business to your website or sell products to consumers.

Make sure you have set up a Google AdSense account and select “Monetize” when you publish a video on YouTube, so you can earn money each time an advertisement is shown while a viewer is watching one of your videos.
