Making a lot of money on YouTube is not as easy as you might think. There are a lot of hurdles to overcome in the process. It’s definitely not a way to get rich quick.
The first and probably most obvious starting point is set up YouTube account. You should have an idea of the types of videos that you want to upload. Next you’ll want to Enable monetization and sign up for Google AdSense.
Indian YouTubers (like Tanmay Bhat) are making money from youtube and are equally famous like any other celebrity in India.
Here are Top YouTubers estimates:
- EpicMealTime makes around $3.1 Million (7 million subscribers)
- Ray William Johnson sits at $4.2 Million (10 million subscribers)
- FunToyzCollector weighs in at a whopping $30.4 million (8 million subscribers)
I will not promise that you will become a youtube celebrity overnight but if you start taking small steps you will definitely start earning money from youtube.
- Here are simple rules:
- • Make a YouTube Channel
- • Make videos and upload to YouTube that will gather attention (read: viewers)
- • You are going to make money (some pennies) for each video view (on average a dollar or two per 1,000 video views).
- • YouTube provides opportunity for content producers to make money and to do that all you have to do is appeal to the viewers.
- Find Name
you have to select a unique name for my channel.
Research is the most important work for creating an awesome content. A thorough research will give you an idea about the current taste of audience and market trend. By doing research,
- You will know exactly what people are producing into your domain (by watching their videos, you can call them your competitors once you reach at their level).
- You can know the taste of your audience and what exactly they need (by reading all the comments and reviews of the famous channels into your domain).
- Your knowledge about your domain will be more polished and you will create the content with more value.
- How to make the best YouTube videos
- Choose your niche: Take some time to think about what you can do well and whether you think people would be interested in it. One of the most popular genres on Youtube is gaming walk-throughs, but it’s pretty competitive. Other genres that work well are: product reviews, comedy, beauty vlogs, and general ‘how to’ guides.
- Choose a good username: Sounds trivial, but trust us, it isn’t. You need to make your username memorable and steer clear from numbers and random characters. Yes, that means Xxx_ponysrock92_xxX is a no go. Sorry.
- Catchy, relevant titles: Make your title both catchy and relevant. That way people will remember it, and more people will stumble across it if they’re searching for something similar.
- Upload content regularly: You won’t build an audience if you not posting stuff for people to watch! Remember, the longer you keep that audience locked in, the more monies you get.
- Be original: There’s nothing wrong with tried-and-tested formats such as reviews or cat videos, but you have to make sure you stand out from the crowd. This is where finding your niche comes in handy – go forth and be different, kids!
- Show you love your content: You need to be creating videos about something you love. Having a passion for your videos will make an affect on how they’re received – if you seem interested, chances are your viewers will be too. If you don’t love what you’re doing you’ll soon get bored and the videos will start to reflect that. Passion comes first, and the money comes second!
- Make vidoes that may perform better, i.e. that are likely to be searched more
- Make videos that are interesting and may make users to watch them completely
- Make videos that are engaging, i.e. should be able to fetch comments, likes
- Compel users to subscribe to your channel Name your videos well, similarly add descriptions and tag appropriately so that your videos are indexed and are shown in search results
- Make a lot of videos, don’t give up on making videos.
- Market your videos to all possible channels (Facebook, Twitter)
My final point is really more to reiterate the idea that, if you want to make money on YouTube, you need to focus on it like it’s a growing business. It’s not primarily about fun, being cool or having a good time; it’s about business.
Taking an analytical, metrics-based approach to your work and allowing those things to influence the direction of your content will do more to help you make money on YouTube than anything else. Understanding these metrics more than your competition does and then using them to make better content is how you’ll win that YouTube money.
Joining content-sharing networks; paying for small, strategically-targeted ad campaigns; cultivating a following not just on YouTube but across other social platforms (and then figuring out how to make all of them work for you): now that is how you turn a YouTube channel in a media empire.
