Make Money Through YouTube

Today's most well known site for watching, uploading, sharing and downloading online videos is simply YouTube. YouTube came into existence in 2005, and in a very short period of time became most successful and revenue generating website over the web.

Today thousands of people upload their videos on YouTube and millions of people watch it. You can simply think of, how much viewership is there on YouTube of each video. Many people are their who have made it possible to earn some extra money through YouTube by simply uploading and sharing their video's.

YouTube can be used as a publishing platform for original videos that entertain all age group of people. Many Internet stars have turned their video views into pay cheques. I'm going to discuss with you few ways through which you can earn money using YouTube.

  1. Upload your videos
    Very well known way of making money with YouTube is making your own original videos and uploading them on YouTube. For uploading videos you should be a registered member of YouTube. If you have a Google account then you can login with the same. And if no you have to create one YouTube account or Google account in order to upload videos.

    While uploading videos be sure they are original one. YouTube doesn't accepts videos that are not your original one. If you are uploading a video of any song or a star and you don't have permissions for it then, YouTube doesn't allow you to upload that video.

    You can create your own video related to anything like cooking, cooking tips, health and fitness videos, presentation tips videos, any subject related videos like flash or Photoshop etc., your own online teaching videos etc. List is endless. This is also known as content creator that is who creates his own content.

    Now in order to monetize your uploads you need to apply for the partners on YouTube. It will take sometime to be get approved. Once it is approved you have to again add adsense programs to your account. This is the way how your videos are en-cashed.

    Once you apply for adsense different ads will appear on your video and as they are clicked you will get your share of profit. It is again the same Google adsense and Affiliate Program way to make money that i have discussed with you earlier.

    Note that YouTube doesn't approves everyone's request of partnership. It evaluates on number of factors such as size of your audience, quality of content, compliance with our YouTube Community Guidelines and Terms of Use, and your country of residence. Again you should be a frequent up-loader of videos.

    Your account may be disabled if you use any of the following without the persons permission who created or produce it:
    • Music (including cover songs, lyrics, and background music)
    • Graphics and pictures (including photographs and artwork)
    • Movie or TV visuals
    • Video game or software visuals.
    • Live performances
  2. Share YouTube videos on your blog
    If you are a blogger than also you can make use of YouTube to have some extra earning. In there is a option to add its videos in your posts. You simply need to add small piece of code that is there and you are ready to share videos.

    Once you have added that code now you can use different affiliate programs as well as adsense program to monetize it.
  3. Advertise Your business
    Every business can be a big success if it is well promoted and well advertised. You can even advertise your business using this for free and that will bring business to you. There are millions of daily visitors to YouTube. If you use this as a platform to promote your business then your business will be known by every viewer and member of YouTube.

    You can even promote your blog and website using it and drive its traffic to your hard work.

Not only adsense and affiliate program contribute to your earning. Number of times your video is watched, number of likes and dislikes all these factors also contribute to your earning. As in blogging people do make money by number of page impression similarly number of times a video is watched also contributes in money making.

You should share your videos and its link on social networking sites to increase number of viewers of your video.

If you want to upload any video that is not yours then there is also a way out.
  • You simply download the video in FLV format.
  • Convert it into MPEG.
  • Now add watermarks to your video of your own website address or blog promoting your own affiliate program. You can add watermarks using Photoshop software.
  • Now cash the checks. It is as simple as that.
