Looking for a way to make money online? Why not check out Youtube. If you are not sure how to make money on YouTube, read on. It doesn’t require a lot of effort and you don’t have to have a video “go viral” to make some reasonable money using Youtube. In fact you can make some relatively good money with just videos that you create and craft that do relatively well, although if you do fall into a viral type video it can be a lot like finding an oil well (albeit a small one) in your back yard.
While it isn’t very likely that you’re going to become vastly wealthy using Youtube, the odds are quite good that using the venue you can make a reasonable amount of money. Youtube is one of the top sites online for videos and so far as traffic goes, there isn’t a lot that will best it.
So How To Make Money On YouTube?
Using the site to make money can be done in several ways. You can make actual money from the site and the content that you put there. You can also use Youtube to push traffic and make money for your primary site. Using it in both ways in order to accomplish the goals that you have is just good business sense.
When you are using your videos to make money directly, you’ll need to follow a few simple rules. The first one is, use good SEO. Even on Youtube, making sure that your video is visible means describing it and tagging it correctly.
Depending on what kind of video you have, your earnings will be different. One quick tip, don’t expect traffic to equate to money. It doesn’t actually work that way. 5 K views doesn’t automatically translate into 5 dollars in earnings. That said, here’s how to make a few dollars on Youtube.
For example, posting a video about how to make an Angel Food Cake would probably result in a title such as -“How to Make an Angel Food Cake.” Use the description to add something about it.. using tags such as General Electric Oven, Egg dishes, and so on. Add tags to that video that will tell the world something about the product, the recipe, the brand that you’re using and so on.
Control whatever you can as to how you tag your video and letting the world know what it’s all about. If you’ve got voice over, chances are good that you’re going to get a bigger audience, but again, that doesn’t necessarily follow. The key is to use your description and your tags to very accurately and surely describe what’s in the video so that people know the benefits of watching it. Google will then tag it with the right kind of advertising to be relevant to what you’re trying to accomplish.
Take some time, when you choose a particular keyword for your video, to make sure that the competition isn’t too stiff. For example, “how to bake a cake” is quite likely going to return millions of results for you. That can be considered the competition and if it’s too stiff you’re going to make a lot less money. A better keyword might be.. How to bake an Angel Food Cake” which will lower your competition and your chances of being seen. Much like a normal website you’ve got to consider how much and how good your competition actually is.
Lastly, don’t assume that just because Youtube is Youtube that you don’t need to advertise. Take your video URL and post it up where it’s going to be visible. Add it to social media and other places so that people have a better chance of finding your video and clicking on your advertising. The more store fronts that you have out there, the better your chances of being seen and getting the clicks.
