So I am seeing lots of people earning money by just creating YouTube video? Can I do the same? Is it really a great option to earn more money online?

Any shares?

Hi Harry,

You will need to create a very popular videos in order to make good money on YouTube.

If you provide good content and provide regular videos for your niche through a dedicated channel then over time you could build a good following on your channel.

What niche do you have in mind?

YouTube is also a great way to drive traffic back to your website, which of course can help you to make money if you provide a service/product.

Regards

Yes, people are making serious money from youtube, directly or indirectly. First you need to choose a niche. I know of those that are in the technology guide niche. You might need to be a geek to pull this off. You may also consider the comedy niche too, this one can easily go viral and you'd make ton of money from the ads.

There are also tips on optimizing and promoting Youtube videos. You can also consider promoting your own blog with youtube videos. The idea here is to create something worth watching; either educative or entertaining, be consistent and give it time to grow. It's just like any other online business; it's not a get rich quick thing but it's a sure way of making money online.

Sure, if you're Google, LOL.

Seriously tho, yes, videos CAN be a great way to earn additional income, but, as with EVERYTHING, only if done right. That is really ALL I can add to this thread as I do not use video myself. I don't know anything about it, other than I have several clients, friends and colleagues who all make a killing with some of their video accounts. My cousin pulls in 5 figures alone JUST from the ads in his YT account... (not sure how, or exactly what's involved, but I've seen the checks. NIIIIIIIIIIICE!)

You can make a good amount of money from youtube because it gets lots and lots of traffic. Besides that, it get traffic from google too because google ranks their videos high up in the search engine results.
The only thing can make you stop doing video marketing because the video gets flagged very fast and then deleted. To get out of such situation, you need to create unique videos instead of downloading someone else videos and then posting it in youtube.

When I asked the friends of my son what they wanted to be when they grow up, they said: a youtuber.

What do these guys do? They play video games and record it, and all sorts of funny *things*.

Monetization comes through the embedded google ads, t-shirts and apparel (I saw one running a successful teespring campaign), and a guy even made a comic with him as protagonist, which pretty much sold out.

These guys don't usually have a website.

The trick is: it is based on personality.

Then you have the more typical uses, like reviews. Showing toys and how they work for a Christmas campaign is always a great seller.

Not to change the subject or take away from what you were saying,
but it's really amazing how times have changed, huh? When I was kid,
when asked what we wanted to be when we grew up, the only answers
you'd hear were things like "a doctor, a chef, a teacher, a football player
(or baseball player), etc". Now a days " a youtuber" LOL.

I am not knocking it, as I have said before, there is some serious money
in being a "youtuber", I just find it amazing how time changes things, LOL.

I find it kind of scary, because these kids don't develop any real life skill (not the "youtubers", the followers). When I was growing up to use a computer was to program--there was nothing else--so you were forced to use the brain. This is a complete different ballgame.

My niece (15) grew up with computers and is obsessed with the latest apps and stuff but doesn't know how to download and install a computer program onto a laptop/desktop! She's like, "Where'd it go?!?" At first, I thought she was being funny, but she said that, whenever she needs to do that stuff at school, she just gets someone else to do it for her. She doesn't know how to use the simple "paint" program to do basic stuff. She ask me how to spell stuff or how to do things she could easily look up on YT -- while she's watching videos of Drake and stuff! I don't get kids these days. They complain about going to school -- even though they rarely (if ever) have homework! When she does, I help her! I'm going off on a tangent. I need to calm down. KIDS THESE DAYS!

Is she using the phone all the time? Look into the effect of non ionizing EMF and their effects on the brain. Or check out Olle Johansson's material.

She doesn't use her phone at the time. She watches her shows and Skype's her boyfriend on her laptop but can't seem to use it to educate herself - kids these days - ha. She's already told me that we're going to college together! I said I can't do that -- not again - ha! It's one thing when older people tell you most of the stuff you learn in school is useless. It's another when you discover it for yourself. That's another reason I like being an online entrepreneur. You actually learn things that make you money.

I CAN'T STAND THAT.

My daughter, who is 18 mind you, a high school graduate none the less.

We'll be playing a game or something, or she'll be texting/email/FBing a friend and she'll look at me and ask "how do you spell XXX". She should know better. She always gets the same "are you frigging kidding me" stare from me...

Here she is, typing on her phone or PC and she seriously has the gaul to ask me how to spell something.

(She's just now finally starting to catch on tho. She'll ask me something like that and I'll look at her, look at her phone, look back at her and then get up and walk away.)

She is 18 years old, a high school graduate, has 3 cell phones (her actual phone, an older android that she uses to store stuff on (it has 32GB space) and an old iPhone, thats cracked to all hell but she will NEVER get rid of, but only uses it with WIFI for listening to music -- i call it her iphod, lol) and she has her own laptop and desktop PCs and a MAC notebook for when she goes back to school and she will seriously sit there and ask questions like that and doesn't even see anything wrong with it?

DOH!!!

I sometimes find myself asking "where the hell did I go wrong" and then, I realize, its not anything I did or didn't do. My daughter is now good friends with a quite a few of her ex high school teachers and even THEY, the people who were supposed to have helped me TEACH my daughter, THEY are just as witless at times as well. AND, each of them are also glued to their phones, when their not busy teaching our next generation of astronauts and doctors (or "youtuber's, LOL)...

When I was in school, if I even walked into the building with one of those fancy shmancy calculator watches, it got confiscated until the end of the school year and my mom would be the one who would have to go in and claim it so I could get it back. Now a days, when I go to my child's open houses, I hear the same thing everytime. "Kids are encouraged to bring in a calculator and their cellphones so they can use them during class."

WTF??? Excuse me?

Oh, and last year, I had my son's teacher tell us "I find kids won't do homework most of the time and it's too much of a hassle to chase them down to try to get them to do it, so I feel assigning homework is a waste of time I could be using teaching them something"...

WHAT DID I JUST HEAR? YOU don't assign a student homework? Simply because s/he refuses to do it?

FAIL THE DAMN BASTARDS/PRINCESSES!

That's what happened when I was in school. Didn't do the assignment? BIG FAT ZERO... Don't feel like doing something, fine -- ZERO!

Not this "aaaaaaw, is homework too muchy wuchy for you. well, thats ok, i just wont assign any then" BULL CRAP...

OK, ok, I have to stop here. Todays educational system, at least in my neck of the woods, is so damn screwed up that it doesn't surprise me when the stats show more high school drop outs in the latter few years than ever before... With some of the schools' attitudes towards certain things, it doesn't surprise me at all when I read about America's students having some of the lowest grades in the world, not one bit...

Amazing, isn't it... Seriously scary if you ask me.

At least I know I'm not going crazy - LOL! It was the same way for me coming up. One thing I think it might have to do with is the quality of teachers. Shortly after I graduated high school, I found out that a lot of the teachers were forced into retirement because they had been there so long. Some quite because they knew they wanted families and simply weren't getting paid enough money -- even though they had advanced degrees and were nationally-board certified and all that.

My niece tells me that pretty much all of her teachers are around my age or younger. They stay on their phones and don't give am crap because they aren't paid crap. I also know some people that just went into teaching because they didn't know what else to do. After going to college with some people that were in the teaching program -- in addition to their regular degree stuff -- I can tell you for a fact that the standards for teachers are too low.

While these people may had done well in an academic setting, they did not have enough knowledge or real-world experience to be teaching in a classroom. The really messed up part was that when I asked them how they planned to teach kids when they didn't know enough themselves, they were all pretty much like "That's what the book is for!" If they do well in class and pay to take some tests, that's pretty much all it takes.

I personally believe that the standards for educators need to be raised. I feel like they should have at least a Master's degree and several years of real-world experience in the field they plan to teach before they step into the classroom. I also feel like they should be paid more for this. I know it's not going to happen, though. The people in our society that make the big bucks are the ones that either create stuff that can be sold to the masses or play an integral role in that.

It's one way to earn money (via the YT partnership program), but whether or not you want to take that route is on you. I know some people who just use it as part of their overall affiliate marketing (or making money online) strategy (depends on the niche they are in). I know other people who make most of their money from the internet from being a YT partner. The second type tend to be humanities people that want to get into the arts (film/television/music/cooking). I do know some mathematicians, engineers, and scientists that create math videos (and have large followings) - lots of people struggle to learn it or don't have books, anymore (crazy). Tech and video games are popular, too. Just make sure to go into a popular niche market.

Youtube is only one of the option that you can use in order to earn money, the problem with this channel is that there's a huge competition. First of all there are a lot of youtube users who already established their name on the field. If you wanna succeed then you need to ensure that your videos are of good quality. Something that is worth watching and sharing after all. Establishing credibility in youtube needs a long period of time.

Other options to earn money online is through affiliate marketing.

I tell my kids they go to school to socialize and need to learn at home. And they do. This is why I work from home.

@Harry... sorry, we seriously hijacked the thread. But it was not with bad intent.

Ah... THE LOOK... yeah, I do that a lot. Next step, pointing at the bookshelf where the dictionary is.

It can work, but it's a lot of work (also depending on your interests). The main downside here is that I see huge competition, so either you find something new which just works or you will be one in a many thousands trying to achieve your goals. Let's Plays for example, I think it's the worst idea to start at the moment unless you are convinced there is something unique to your content which nobody else can offer.

Haha, definitely, I thought the same.
