Use YouTube to get traffic to your website and blog.
If you’ve got a website or blog which brings in income, you need traffic. Many websites were hard-hit by Google’s Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird updates.
If this happened to you, you’re hurting. You can use YouTube to not only regain traffic, but also increase it.
Get started using the Creator Playbook. Once you’re set up, consider re purposing some older content into videos, as well as creating new videos.
Make sure that you link to your own website in the first line of your video descriptions, so you can funnel your YouTube traffic to where you want it to go.
Create products and promote them on YouTube.
If you’re creating your own products or would like to, YouTube offers unlimited ways for you to promote your products and make sales. Products you can create include ebooks, apps, art, and music.
Create your products, and add them to a shopping cart. Then use to promote them. As we mentioned above, add a link to your product in your video’s description, so that viewers can buy.
Sell others’ products as an affiliate marketer.
“Affiliate marketing” means selling products in exchange for a commission. Hundreds of thousands of companies offer attractive deals to affiliate marketers who promote their products, including huge companies, like Amazon and eBay, as well as smaller companies.
Additionally, there are many affiliate networks you can join. These networks include ClickBank, Commission Junction, and ShareASale.
To make money from YouTube as an affiliate marketer, review your affiliate products on video, or create “how to use this product” tutorials. Don’t forget to link to your products in your YouTube descriptions – make sure you’re using your affiliate link, or you won’t get credit for sales.
Get creative: Create a Web TV series.
Love telling stories? YouTube lets you create your own Web TV shows. You’re limited only by your imagination… and your budget. You can create a comedy series, a drama series, or your own talk show.
Be aware that YouTube limits your show’s length to 15 minutes. To upload longer videos, you’ll need to increase your limit.
If you’re a frustrated TV or screen writer, get a few friends together, and record your own TV shows. You never know. If you get lots of views, you may develop a new career.
Test-market your products.
YouTube is an amazing resource for market research – you can soon discover whether you’re brilliant, innovative idea is likely to be profitable.
For example, if you’ve got an idea for a product, but need funding, create some videos before you create a Kick starter campaign.
The views and comments on your videos will tell you whether your idea is viable in its present form. The audience can even help you to make it viable, so that your efforts to get funding are successful.
Build your brand using YouTube
As marketing guru Tom Peters pointed out way back in 1997, you’re a brand, and you have power. YouTube helps you to amplify YOU.
Whatever you’re doing, and whatever your job, YouTube can help you to become known for your strengths, and make money.
Even if you have no clear idea on how you could make money on YouTube, get started creating videos about your interests. You may just stumble across a gold mine… just as the people who turned their pets into stars have done.
