Do you know how many ways there are to make money online? Probably a million. Everyone has heard of the big companies that hire people to drive traffic to their websites and make tons of money. What about the small independent websites that get millions of visitors on a daily basis. Does anyone make money doing this?
Do they actually work? No, they do not. Can you make money online by driving traffic to your website? Yes, you can, but will you be successful at it?
Will you earn money by being a youtuber? Sure you can, but not as much as you would like to. You see, there are certain channels on YouTube that are just saturated with all kinds of marketers trying to get their hands on the massive amount of potential customers that use YouTube. The only problem is that not many of them actually know how to do what they are doing. So lets look at what it takes to become a successful youtuber.
First you must choose a niche market. It’s best to pick one that is already crowded. For example, niches such as “How to earn a living as a housekeeper” or “Make money cleaning houses”. If you choose one of these you will have to compete with lots of other people who are already doing what you want to do. This means having to learn lots of different skills and techniques.
Once you pick a niche you need to research it thoroughly and learn everything you can about it. This is where I started to lose interest in YouTube and started to focus more on my blog instead. My first mistake was thinking that since I was a youtuber I could just make money out of anything I wanted. I soon realized that if I wanted to be successful online I had to be willing to work for it.
Your next step is to set up your YouTube channel. If you’re not internet savvy, I suggest going to Google and type in “how to create a YouTube channel” or “create a YouTube channel”. Once you do this go to format and turn it into what you would like. This is where you would put the name of your business, your URL (which you will have to affiliate yourself with) and the length of the video which should be no longer than 30 seconds.
Next you need to start creating content. There are many different ways you can do this. Some of the most popular ways include making frequency 3 videos per week, having your subscribers sign up to your list, making a video daily, having audio talk show podcast or webinar every other day etc. Whatever method you choose it’s important that you stay consistent.
Once you have your channel set up, your first order of business is to start making videos and getting subscribers. You can easily do this by getting traffic from your niche of choice. The most effective way to drive traffic to your site is to post on forums in your niche and create good quality content around that topic. If you can optimize your videos for keywords in your niche then you will see much better results. You will also want to create ads within the video and on your website.
In order to make money online as a video taker, you will also need to invest in equipment like camera, tripod, and screen. When starting out you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Just invest in a few things that will help you along the way. Getting a quality camera is crucial because quality cameras make your videos look professional.
Once you get your videos out there, you will then need to find a niche where you will want to target. You should find niches that are highly searched for in the Google. A lot of the top internet marketers started their business this way and find that doing this works great for them. It is also much less expensive than hiring others to do the marketing for you.
One way that you can make money online as a video taker is to have a YouTube channel. YouTube has millions of users and since it’s such a popular channel, it’s much easier to rank for a specific keyword. If you are in a highly searched for niche, making money from YouTube may be possible for you. You just have to learn how to make a good channel that will draw subscribers to it.
