How to Make Money on Youtube

how to make money on youtube

Youtube is one of the best platforms to make money online from home without investment. Look at all the viral videos on Youtube. Many of them are events that you see often, such as a puppy chasing a ball, a kitten. Some of them are rarer or scripted, like list videos, or parodies.

The fact of the matter is that thousands, if not tens of thousands, of people are making money off of Youtube. The best part about this is that you don’t need a massive capital to start, anyone can do it!

Ways to make money from Youtube

Most successful people on Youtube were just ordinary people with a little bit of charisma, luck, and a tiny bit of talent who found a good time to post their video and succeed. All this said; let’s jump right into our list of 9 ways to make money on Youtube!

1.Become a Youtube Partner

By becoming a Youtube partner, you can monetize on Youtube in a variety of ways! As listed on the Youtube overview page, you can have ads on and around your video, paid subscriptions, and merchandise. Many Youtube partners make millions, if not billions off of the ads they put on their videos. If you can manage to grow your Youtube channel using the other tips, you will get money for every person who comes to your channel and watches a video!

2. Tutorials

Do you know how to do something that most other people can’t do? Create a tutorial channel for it! Some people who make makeup tutorials get millions of views on their videos, because people Google what they want to learn. Think about it, if you want to know how to do something you’d Google it - and your video would get lots of views (and hence lots of money) through that.

3. Sell Your Own Products

Do you already have a product you need to sell? Make a company Youtube channel where you can put guides and tips about using your product. You can even put ads there, and watch as you get more sales on your product as well as views!

4. Series

Have a great idea that can be repeated for many different cases? Create a series! For example, the Youtube channel “TheFineBros” created a series called “React” which shows people reacting to different videos and ideas. This can be repeated infinitely, and is entertaining to watch, so if someone watches one episode of the series, they’ll watch them all!

5. Affiliate Programs

This is if you’re looking for quick money without much effort. Promote some kind of affiliate link in your description, and talk about the service you’re promoting in the video. People will see the video and click on the link, which gives you a cut of the profits.

6. Link Shorteners

Use a link shortener, such as, in order to shorten the links in your description. You get $0.0005 for each person that clicks on your link, which doesn’t sound like much, but it ads up. You can make these link shorteners go to another video, or a website with ads for even more earnings!

7. Create a Competition

Do you like winning things? Of course you do, everyone does! Find something to give away, and make people share your video in order to get entries (there are websites that manage this for you, which I will detail in another blog post soon. If you want to see it, sign up for our newsletter!)

8. Create a Viral Video

This is easier said than done, I know, but it is possible with some good timing and a good idea. Gangam Style was created by an artist no one had heard about, and it got more views than almost any video on Youtube.

9. Partnerships

Once you get popular, companies will pay you to feature or talk about their product in your video. If you accept these offers, you can be making almost half your Youtube income from them. If the offers aren’t coming, you can always ask the company if they want to advertise on your channel. Make sure who you are advertising is relevant to your channel! Don’t go advertising makeup on a technology channel!
