Can You Make Money On YouTube?

Can you make money on Youtube? That’s a great question.

Can You Make Money On YouTubeAnd my quick and simple answer for you is “HELL YEAH!”

BUT – it comes with a word of caution. If you know what you’re doing, then making money on Youtube is a piece of cake. But if you don’t know what you’re doing. Then like everything else. It seems almost impossible.

Many of my very own students ask me… “Can you make money on Youtube?” And I always tell them, “Yes, but let’s first talk about why Youtube is so powerful”. Did you know that 3 Billion videos are viewed A DAY!? Yup! That’s Billion with a B! It’s insane! So right there, you can see how much potential traffic and eyeballs this website gets.

48 hours of video is uploaded EVERY MINUTE. Can you say “HOLY S#%T!”. Yeah. That’s how many people from all over the world is driving content to Youtube. It is a content MONSTER. Quite literally.


Can you make money on Youtube?

Yes you can. But not the way that you are thinking of. There are a few ways to make money on Youtube. The first and most usual way is to become a content expert and upload a ton of entertaining content onto your Youtube Channel. There are a few people who have done this successfully. But let me tell you, that it’s not the easiest thing to do.

Firstly, you need to be pretty good at creating entertaining videos. Secondly, you need to hit over a million views consistently to get any real attention from Youtube to start allowing you to put up sponsored advertising. Which is down right impossible! So, this strategy is the most obvious, but is NOT really an option.

Ok… but what if you’re not some good looking, super talented, entertaining kind of person? (Don’t worry, most of us aren’t!)… Well it’s all good because Youtube is a great source to drive customers to other methods of making money on the Internet. (And there are lots of ways to do that…)

Yup! It is a primo source for generating TRAFFIC and new customers.

What do I mean?

Well say for example, you have a product that you want to market online. And you needed to drive some eyeballs to your product so that people can buy it. Then Youtube would be a perfect source for doing that. Now you might be thinking, “Well Aaron, I don’t have a product. How can you make money you Youtube?”

And that is something that we teach our students how to do on a regular basis. If your goal is strictly to create more income for yourself. Then Youtube can definitely assist you in making money. However, all you’d be doing is using Youtube as a source to drive more leads and traffic to other places online where you would be generating your income and profits.

How To Make Money From Home

How To Make Money From HomeThere is lots of information on how to make money from home, and most people look to the Internet for both the information and the means of making money from the comfort of their own home, either to supplement their current income or maybe to completely replace it. The issue that most people come up against when they’re trying to work out how to make money from home is also trying to work out how to not get ripped off!

What I want to do in this article is provide you with a few key pointers that might help you in your mission to make money from home, and hopefully allow you to avoid some of the pitfalls that beset many people when searching online.

There is so much choice out there, that just searching for how to make money from home in the search engines can leave you bewildered and overwhelmed as you try and sift the real opportunities from all the hyperbole and hoaxes. To help with this, you should firstly ensure that you’ve done all your research and due diligence on anything that you intend to pursue, and secondly try and answer the following questions before making your final decision:

 1.     Do the upfront costs properly reflect the returns you’re going to get?

Whilst some opportunities may have a very low initial cost or investment, the old saying that ‘it takes money to make money’ holds true in virtually all cases and you should be wary of any opportunity that promises mass riches overnight just from following the ‘program’. At the other end of the scale, there are equally many opportunities with a high upfront investment, and my advice would be to do the same level of due diligence as you would if you were buying a franchise.

Ultimately, the level of investment is not going to determine whether you get a return on it; even the best franchises in the world have failed franchisees! Success comes down to one person, and if you really want to understand how to make money from home, then you should closely examine your own drive and motivation to succeed more than anything else.

Having said that, in any opportunity, look for what kind of support you’re likely to receive, and whether you have the opportunity of a mentor or coach on hand to guide you along the way and prevent any disastrous mistakes. A good mentor can be a big cost on its own, but there are a few opportunities where business coaches and mentors are available and this can prove crucial to your success.

 2.     What is the market like? Is it saturated? Do others make money in this market?

Many people will jump on the bandwagon resulting in a particular market becoming saturated. One particular market that springs to mind is the health and wellness market (which also includes weight loss etc.) where even in spite of having perhaps the best product, your ability to succeed with be determined by your marketing and whether you’re able to stand out from the crowd. A saturated market doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enter it (what if Apple had thought that the mobile phone market was saturated?), but you should think carefully about how you’re going to break into the market and succeed; saturated markets are not for newbies!

Equally, alarm bells should be ringing if there are no other competitors in a market. If that market is this new, you should be researching whether the demand for the product or service actually exists in the first place. Have others tried this market before?

When choosing a market, I recommend looking for a niche market where others are already making money, and whether the barriers to entry, such as cost, are not too high.

 3.     How much time and effort is needed to get your new business going and how soon will it ‘wash its own face’?

What you need to understand when you’re looking at how to make money from home is that any business required time and effort to get it off the ground. Most of the effort is going to be at the start, much like a rocket taking off from the launch pad, 90% of the effort is in actually taking off. Similarly, building a house requires lots of effort before it’s built and then only maintenance is required.

The question that arises from that is whether you’re prepared to put in the huge amount of effort that will likely be required to get the business off the ground, and continue until you start making a profit?

When you have the business up and running, how much time and effort is required to keep it running? Don’t fall into the trap that many people fall into where they basically end up owning their own job where they often have to work more hours than they did in a day job just to keep the business running and making profit.

Lessons in how to make money from home

Don’t be put off by opportunities where a lot of money can be made, but do be wary of those that claim it can be made with what seems like little or no effort. I have never come across any business where money is made overnight with no effort and it only happens to lottery winners.

I don’t subscribe to the notion that ‘if it sounds to be too good to be true, it probably is’ because it’s that very attitude that stops many people making those steps forward. Sure, there is risk with any business, that’s why there are big rewards for those entrepreneurs that have the guts to go for their dream and build a business. However, when you’re looking at how to make money from home with a home based business, it certainly makes sense to try and minimise those risks by doing your research and due diligence properly.

And it’s no wonder that you’re currently searching for creative ways to make money. I can tell you that I did the EXACT same thing. The only difference is… my search started quite a while back. 2 and a half years ago to be exact. I had been struggling at my normal day job busting my butt doing 72+ hour weeks. And really had nothing to show for it at the end of the day.

It always felt like everyone around me had MORE. More money, more time, more of everything. And the simple truth it – they ALL DID! It was depressing. And so I started my search for creative ways to make money. And I naturally gravitated to the Internet. Much the same as you are doing right now…

I mean, where else do you go these days to look for such obscure information?! I mean come on… “Creative ways to make money…”? Where are you going to find a book on that? Ok ok… You could probably buy one of Amazon. But then again, Amazon is an ONLINE site. Which is on the Internet. HA! So there you go… That just goes to show how powerful the Internet is.

Ok so, back to creative ways to make money…

I must have spent over $40,000 on my credit card, buying courses. Trying out programs. Getting involved in different businesses on the Internet. It was nuts! And I can tell you, it was NOT fun! There is plenty of opportunity online, but unfortunately, there is also very little proper guidance. It’s like trying to HACK through a jungle with a blade. You’re basically blazing your own trail. And getting cuts and bruises all along the way because you have no idea what you are doing or where you’re going.

Then, I finally found a mentor. Someone who actually showed me a scientific formula to making money on the Internet. Funny thing is, I already knew I needed one, but I just kept fighting the need until I had spent almost all my money and maxed out my credit cards. Can you say “idiot?!”. Yup, I was an idiot. If I could turn back time. That’s the FIRST thing I would do.

Find someone who has been through the entire process and can give me a structured roadmap so I can make some serious income using the most powerful tool in the world – the Internet.

So if you’re looking for creative ways to make money, look no further. The Internet holds the answer. How do I know? Well, 2.5 years later, no boss, no debt, no bills I can’t pay and a 100% online business – I can tell you a thing or two about creative ways to make money – online. 😉
