If you’re an eCommerce merchant, you should set up a YouTube channel to create and publish videos of your products and events, to display affiliate marketing material and to tell more people about your business.
There are several ways you can make money with YouTube videos.
You can make money by displaying other businesses ads on your YouTube videos. When someone clicks an ad you make money.
You can also make some serious money through video marketing. More people than ever are watching videos online for educational, inspirational, and entertainment purposes. Videos are easy to find online and easy to search for on any mobile device. If you want to tap into this market, you will need to learn the strategy that will make people click on your ads as oppose to your competitors and how to create cost effective high-quality videos.
You can make a lot more money by adding affiliate links in your YouTube description than you can through Google AdSense. You can also do a product review tutorial. Learn more about Affiliate marketing…
You can make reoccurring income through patreon.com, which is a site that allows you to create your own paid membership to promote your video content even if you don’t have a lot of subscribers.
Sponsorship and brand deals
If you’re a social media influencer, or have a niche YouTube channel, you can submit a proposal to companies who are seeking influencers to promote their brands. Product videos can include reviews, product unveiling or product comparisons. Check out famebit.com and grapevine.co.uk.
Sell physical products
Teespring is very popular at the moment. This is a site where you add your design, or slogan to merchandise, such as clothing and home goods. Teespring will make it and ship it on your behalf. You can drop ship other products, if you don’t want to hold/buy stock. Learn more about drop shipping…
Sell digital products
If you are selling digital goods such as eBooks, you can publish book trailer videos. Try Fiverr.com if you are looking to produce a promotional video at a relatively cheap cost. (You will need to purchase the license copy for both the visual and soundtrack).
If you’re in the YouTube partnership program, viewers can pay you money to pin their comments to the top of the live stream chat.
