YouTube is a beast, it’s possibly the most powerful media out there, and I’m not talking about making money with ads… not that it’s a bad idea, a million views will get you a few thousand bucks, but why stop there?
I just stumbled onto a person who has turned their YouTube channel into a million dollar business.
They have been doing YouTube marketing since 2006, it doesn’t happen that fast, but think about all the cash that will start coming in at one point or another.
It’s like with blogging, you put in a few years and then the blog becomes an asset for life, only with YouTube you don’t have to pay for hosting and programmers (and a bunch of other shit) LOL.
Check this out.
I won’t mention names, as I don’t want you to think this is some promo article or whatever, I want you to know I publish to help, and only to help… helping is happiness.
So I go to this YouTube channel and I see a famous person who gets about a million views per video, and that’s each video they upload.
A lot of people do and make decent money, yet this person makes millions.
Here’s how they do, and how you can do it too.
1 Pick a niche
Preferably something popular like, off the top of my head, smartphones, how to make money, how to put on makeup (for the ladies) etc.
But it doesn’t have to be any of these, you can teach people whatever you have knowledge about, people look for all sorts of things. You can teach them how to play some game if you are a gamer, or how to be funny, anything you like.
2 Start uploading tutorial videos
Of course, those who started back in the day when YouTube was just getting traction, like the person I’m talking about, have some advantage, but it’s never too late.
Be yourself and people will love your videos.
3 Put up a membership site
Once you start getting followers and views, put up a membership site that offers what you teach in those videos for a monthly fee.
For example: If you teach people how to be funny, offer them personalized tutorials for 10 bucks a month… like what are the best jokes for them, or what kind of humor fits their personality.
4 Pitch the idea to investors
That’s what they look for – great business opportunities.
The more popular you are on YouTube, the better chance you’d have to get seed money.
5 Go buy a yacht and live your life
…or do whatever you like.
The beautiful thing about this business model is you don’t need anything but a camera and a few years (maybe months) to get it going.
There are a lot of people monetizing videos, but of course you can be unique and not give a shit about them.
I started this blog a little late, but found a way to make it what it is now, although there were a lot of doubters.
You can do it.
