Making Money on YouTube Could Be Your New Work at Home Career
Do you ever use how-to or tutorial videos online? YouTube is a great resource when you find yourself in need of visual instruction on any number of topics, and there are some posters that have been able to make money with YouTube. But how can you do that, too? Here are a few helpful hints to remember as you get started.
Video content and quality is very important. You want a video or tutorial that is not like anything else out there. The more creative it is, the better. Then, upload it to YouTube to create your own YouTube Channel. Then, once you have a quality product – you need to get the word out through every avenue you can – search engine optimization, social media, blogs, word of mouth – whatever it takes. You also need to have an active Ad Sense account, which is a paid referral program.
Once you have a following and your videos are getting a fair amount of hits (views) – it's time to make money with YouTube. The first step is to become a YouTube partner. Before you can become a YouTube partner, your uploads have to meet certain criteria, maintain your Ad Sense account, and then it's time to get going.
How you actually make money with YouTube is similar to how bloggers make money – through Ad Sense and YouTube advertisements, and sponsored posting. Once you are a partner, you can also be offered an opportunity for branding, which also increases revenue.
Here's one success story of someone who has been able to make money with YouTube:
Sarah Dussalt, who is the producer for Diet.com's video team, has launched a successful YouTube channel called DietHealth. They upload weekly fitness and health videos to their YouTube channel, some of them up to10 minutes long. Diet.com will make money with YouTube, then take those profits and put them back into their video production to improve the quality of future videos. They are striving to make each one better than the last.
They were one of the first fitness/healthy lifestyle channels that YouTube offered, and they saw the potential that it had, not only for Diet.com – but to help others as well. Currently, YouTube is the only form of marketing and advertisement that Diet.com uses. In an interview with YouTube – Dussalt says, “Being a YouTube partner changed our business by helping guide us into the social media juggernaut that it is. Having the following on YouTube gives our website, social media credibility and the ability to sell our own social media marketing campaigns for brands.”
Want to make money with YouTube? It's hard work – and it takes a lot of time to get the revenue that you want, but if you produce quality work that will help others and give them information that they want and need, it can be done!
Recently I started my own YouTube Channel. Though there aren't a lot of videos right now, I am able to earn with them now since it's now qualified for ads. Am I earning tons? No. But hey, it's all about the bottom line. It adds up. MoneyMakingMommy YouTube Channel.
