How To Make Money With YOUTUBE
How To Make Money With YOUTUBE :
Thanks to YouTube and other social media sites, each one of us can take center stage and present our views of life to a world-wide audience. For the very first time, individuals have access to the same broad audience once reserved for major television net-works and their wealthy advertisers. This is not to suggest that anyone can just pick up a camera and automatically gain the exposure and gravitas of, say, Walter Cronkite. But each of us can
work in our own little corner of YouTube to create a following and an audience for our own particular view on life. Whether we go onto YouTube to spread a political message, promote our businesses, or share our humor (as everyone else seems to think weâ€™re funny), weâ€™ve got the power within our own hands to change our
lives through video on demand. Even Queen Elizabeth II has her own place on YouTube!
But, the question remains, can you make money with YouTube? The answer to that question is . . . YES. True, it all depends upon your definition of â€œmaking money.â€ If you think that youâ€™ve only actually made money when youâ€™ve added dollars to your bottom line, then YouTube success may elude you at ï¬rst. But if making money can also mean saving on advertising expenses and branding costs, then please stay tuned.
Throughout the pages of this book, weâ€™re going to introduce you to individuals and company representatives who are convinced that YouTube changed their lives. Youâ€™ll meet comedians who now earn stipends as YouTube partners. Youâ€™ll meet public relations ofï¬cers who report more than 1,000 percent increases in their sales as a result of their YouTube presence. Youâ€™ll meet sales and marketing executives from Fortune 500 companies who are now so smitten with the success theyâ€™ve realized on YouTube they may never plan another advertising campaign without it. Youâ€™ll meet Fred, a 14-year- old farm kid who not only has an advertising agency working on his behalf but also retains a business manager who advises him and his
family about what to do next. Youâ€™ll meet stay-at-home moms who are supplementing their familyâ€™s incomes and forging fascinating new lives for themselves. All these people had an idea and stuck with it long enough to learn how to make that idea proï¬table.
Now, this is not to say that youâ€™ll necessarily row your little boat down the River YouTube to guaranteed fame, fortune, and happiness. Weâ€™ve been at this profession a little too long to believe that weâ€™re privy to the next great get-rich-quick scheme. The path to success on YouTube is more like a winding estuary than a raging river. In addition to the success stories on the site, youâ€™ll ï¬nd a whole lot of junk, but a lot of it is golden, too.
In the chapters that follow, youâ€™ll discover how to create a YouTube presence in the latter category. Youâ€™ll get acquainted with the phenomenon that is YouTube, learn how both individuals and companies are using the site to achieve their goals, and explore the basics of how to produce a great video. Then, once you have your
video posted to the site, youâ€™ll learn how to promote and distribute it so that it wonâ€™t be lost in the tsunami of video that gets added to the site every day. Finally, youâ€™ll ï¬nd out about potential revenue-sharing sources for you through YouTube, and youâ€™ll learn about other online video-sharing sites that might prove to be at least as proï¬table for you as YouTube is.
All along the way, youâ€™ll discover the fun and enthusiasm that marks YouTube and its contributors. You may have to go a long way to find a group of people more energized and enthusiastic about the work theyâ€™re pursuing. Itâ€™s been a great deal of fun to research and write this book. Itâ€™s our fervent hope that youâ€™ll ï¬nd it to be a great deal of fun to read it.
