YouTube is a major contender in the video sharing field, allowing users to create high quality videos and upload them to share to others. Making good videos require money, time and effort. The fact that YouTube allows users to make money by making and uploading videos, allow for better video quality. So, how ordinary people are able to money by the buckets on YouTube? Millions of people are already making money on YouTube and it’s already a common knowledge. However, you need to stay legal, because YouTube will crack a pretty fierce whip towards those who do illegal things. Reusing copyrighted material will cause your YouTube account to get terminated.
There are different methods to make money on YouTube:
- Product Reviews: People who are not convinced about their appearance or have self esteem problem may choose performing product unboxing, reviews, tutorial and walkthrough instead. Obviously, you can’t just use PowerPoint and don’t say anything. The best way is to check popular videos with millions of views that unbox and review products. You may try to match the quality of these videos and you will see that plenty of efforts are devoted to create them. As an example, if you are especially good with playing acoustic guitars, you may provide detailed reviews of newly released models and if you can also play wonderful music with each new guitar, you may attract massive amount of views. Product review videos are also useful when you are selling products. Other than providing useful information, you may also reveal price, payment details and shipping costs. When creating videos, you should make sure to use very interesting title and you shouldn’t just use “acoustic guitar review” for the video title. Very attractive title and thumbnail image will encourage people to click and watch your videos. Again, check how other YouTube uploaders make their videos appear very interesting using the right kind of title and thumbnail images.
- Use Viral Content: Determining what kind of content that will go viral can be quite tricky. Often, it is content that genuinely amazes and surprises viewers. Obviously, this kind of content can be very valuable and many YouTube uploaders are looking for it. A plane crash is a very tragic incident, but you will see thousands of YouTube uploaders want to capitalize on it. There will be one or two videos about it that will go viral and gather millions of views in just a few days. You don’t have to make money from others’ suffering and there are still many topics that can get you thousands of dollars for each viral video.
- Provide Pure Information: It should be very easy for you to provide pure information for people with similar interests. Before making such video, you should make sure that there’s no video with similar topics and people are actually looking for such information. It means that your videos will have minimal competition and plenty of demands. As an example, there are hundreds of basic video tutorial on HTML, but you may provide very unique HTML tips that can help people to achieve much with less effort.
