How to earn money from YouTube
This is a money making blog, and I do make money with this blog, but the only way for me to earn money is when I can be helpful to people seeking a way to make some money like I do, and one of the most popular questions I get all the time is “How to earn money from YouTube” .
YouTube is the third most visited sites worldwide, and it does make a lot of money for its owners (Google), and in the last 2 years Google has changed the search algorithm to bring more results from YouTube in their search engine to direct more and more traffic to YouTube. And where there is traffic, there is more opportunities to earn money, promote businesses and even promote yourself.
If you search Google using the same term “how to earn money from YouTube” you will find 8 out of 10 results on the first page are videos from YouTube, and all results are promoting some kind of offer to make money. You can do the same with any niche like “weight lose”, “music offers”, “Dating” or any topic you can think off.
So, how to make money online from YouTube?
The idea of earning money from YouTube is to upload videos and have some kind of link in the description of the video or in the video itself to redirect people to it, then have an offer there that may interest your visitors and they will buy it, when they do you will earn a commission as an affiliate or as a network marketer.
So basically to earn money from your videos you need:
Video to upload + an offer to monetize your video + traffic to your video = earn money.
This is the same formula that we use to make money online in different ways, like blogs, social media and websites. But what special about YouTube is that it could be easier to attract traffic but the video must convert. There are few ways to monetize your video like just adding Google adsense that we don’t recommend at all, it is wasting your traffic and giving it a way to others who will make money with it, and it’s like giving away your traffic for pennies to others who make few good dollars. Instead we recommend having a good offer that pays you much more.
Ways To Monetize Your YouTube Videos:
1. Affiliate marketing, the best way to monetize YouTube videos is by using affiliate offers, for example the most searched for YouTube video are related to health, and you can have some health tips videos and offer physical health products like Market Health products that give you up to 50% commission on each sale made from your own link, you can also get your own health store under your own domain name and website, they will create your own health store for you. You can also promote digital products and earn high commission like using clickbank affiliate marketplace, or create your own affiliate store from clickbank products by using the service of CBproads affiliate niche stores.
2. Network Marketing and MLM business opportunities, you can redirect your visitors to a network marketing opportunities that make you not only earn a direct commission from each new member you refer but also from the work and money earned by your referrals. Opportunities like 7 Minutes Workout or you can redirect your visitors to a full money making system like Plug In Profits Sites. See this example YouTube video about network marketing:
You don’t need a money making related video to redirect your visitors to network marketing or money making opportunity, because most internet users and especially those who spend time watching YouTube videos will be interested in making more money online, so even if you upload a funny video, music, weird, or just a TV show or program, you can have a small ad on the video or a short teaser on the description to redirect people to your network marketing link.

1. First of all you need to create an account, one account to all Google products and services that include YouTube, then sign in to your account.
2. Choose a topic that you will focus at, any topic that interests you. You will be creating some short videos about this topic, for example my topic is “make money online” “home business” and “work from home” and even I am sharing videos that are not on topic like funny videos, popular music and educational videos, I make money by presenting my network marketing opportunities to my audience.
3. Monetize your video buy adding a link to your offer from in the video or/and from the description. Here you need to think it really through, are you going to use affiliate links, network marketing links, long ugly full of codes links, short redirected links, or your own link.
