Social media provides a great way to make a living these days and many people even become millionaires.
One of the best ways to do this is to use Youtube. It may not seem like something that anybody can do but it actually is. You don’t have to be a model or have some extraordinary talent. If you can make content that a segment of the population wants to see then you can make money at it.
This isn’t to say that it is simple, because it does take a lot of dedication and work to make it happen. Yet, there are a lot of ways that you can do things that will help you be successful. In this article, we will go over some of the ways that you can make a living off of Youtube.
1 – Pick a niche
You have to have a topic that you cover extensively to make it on Youtube. People are either looking for experts in their field that they can learn from, or they are looking for a content creator that they know what they can expect from.
This means that you have to decide on what your thing is going to be on Youtube. You could be a cooking channel, but it’s best to focus on a certain type of cooking. Or, you could be a fitness channel and focus on training for a triathlon specifically.
This will help you stand out and get faster traffic to your channel.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to topics. There are channels that do things like just show somebody using a power washer or airless paint sprayers for hours and they get millions of views.
The important thing is to make sure that you pick a topic and then stick with it and do not deviate too much or you will lose subscribers.
2 – Think of monetization
When you pick a topic make sure to think it through to the end which means how you will make money from it. Some people make money strictly from ads on Youtube and make a lot of money. They get millions of views per video to be able to do this.
Make sure that if your monetization plan is advertising that the topic has the possibility of generating millions of views.
Smaller niches can still be very profitable if you have something that you can sell. For instance, a cooking channel can sell an e-cookbook and make money even if your videos are not getting millions of views.
3 – Be consistent
To build a following you have to post consistent content. This means that the content itself should follow your own personal formula. It also means that you have to publish on a consistent basis. People like to know what to expect when they subscribe to a channel.
Help them out by giving them what they expect and you will be rewarded with loyal followers.
