There is no doubt that YouTube has the capacity to be a money-maker for anyone sharing useful original content. In fact, according to Forbes, YouTube is one of the largest search engines in the world, second only to Google. In a time when video dominates, this is no surprise. And with three billion monthly searches on YouTube, you can bet someone somewhere is exploring the internet for the content that you’re sharing right now! If you’re ready to learn how to make money with YouTube, what you’re about to read may shock you, especially when it comes to how effortless it can be when you know the secret formula for generating a steady income stream using your YouTube channel.
How to Make Money with YouTube
There are two primary ways to earn money with a YouTube channel. Chances are you’re familiar with the first and more obvious way, the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). The way this works is that once a channel owner meets a set of requirements and is approved for the program, YouTube enables advertising on that channel. YouTube pays channel owners for views and clicks on those partner ads. The earnings amount varies, and unless you have a substantial following, the likelihood of earning a living from your YouTube channel with ad revenue alone is slim. This is especially true for newly launched channels who do not meet the criteria of having a minimum of 1,000 channel subscribers and more than 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months. For YouTube newbies, making money this way proves challenging. The good news is that regardless of how new you are to YouTube and whether your channel meets the YPP criteria or not, there’s a greater monetizing opportunity when it comes to sharing your video content with the world.
This brings us to the second way to earn money with YouTube by using your original video content. The key to cashing in on the world’s voracious appetite for helpful videos is to have a solid distribution strategy that puts your videos in front of the viewers who need it. The magic bullet in the online revenue-generating game is not to use YouTube alone, but to use that amazing platform in conjunction with Skills Co. This allows you to create a smart money-making machine by maximizing your content distribution efforts and lifting the ceiling off your online earning potential. The result is a limitless revenue stream with minimal effort.
YouTube Viewers are Seeking Your Skills Now
This aggressive income-generating strategy means that instead of sitting back and waiting for a certain number of viewers to watch a certain number of ads so that they can make pennies per view, anyone at any point in their video sharing career can get active and make a real income by using their YouTube channel to direct viewers to premium content on Skills Co.
Selling your skills is the fastest and easiest way to make the most money on YouTube. This strategy makes sense, too. Those three billion monthly searches on YouTube mean that people are continually seeking out specific content with intent, and it’s not all cute kitten videos they’re after. A 2017 study revealed that 70 percent of all YouTube viewers use the platform to learn a specific skill. Consider your skills and talents. Chances are high that someone is searching YouTube to learn that exact skill at this precise moment. This leads to your golden opportunity to capitalize on what you already know to boost your earnings. With a simple, straightforward two-step process, you can accelerate your money-making money potential today with YouTube and Skills Co.
