7 ways to earn money from youtube
A lot of people are making tons of money from the YouTube. Some of the Indian examples are Mumbaikar Nikhil for bikes, Nisha Madhulika for cooking, GeekyRanjit for technology, AIB & Kannal Gill for comedy and the list goes on. All these people are at the top of ladder but they started somewhere, let’s see the various ways through which these people monetize.
Youtube content creators can monetize through the Youtube partner program, which is essentially Google AdSense for video content.
You must have seen the ads displayed before videos. In order to have ads appear within your Youtube videos and start making money, you need to join the youtube partner program where your youtube account needs to be linked with your google adsense account. Once done, you will get paid as cost per view which is a variable factor.
On an average one gets $1 – $2 per 1000 views. Besides, monetization also depends on the type of your audience and country.
#2. Affiliate marketing
Youtube affiliate marketing is the process in which you create videos and place affiliate links either in the videos or the video description.
Many times when a Youtuber showcases a product and asks you to buy it from a link in the description, he is actually doing affiliate marketing, which is referring you a product to buy. When users ends up buying, then the youtuber makes money in the form of affiliate commissions.
You can see how youtubers link products in the description box.
You can opt for Amazon / Flipkart affiliate program or approach brands related to your niche and start linking their products to make money. You can make 10-13% commission on Amazon, Flipkart, and around 10% commission on other brands.
#3. Direct promotion (Sponsorship)
This is similar to affiliate marketing but here you get paid a fixed amount of money instead of conversion/sales based commission . The whole videos are made keeping in mind that they have to promote the brand by making it the center of attraction. Here is an example of a paid video on a channel called Unbox Therapy sponsored by McDonald’s.
Rates are decided on the amount of views you get on your videos. It can range from Rs 1000-5000 for early youtubers to as high as Rs 10,000-50,000 for top youtubers.
#4. Paid videos
There are many channels who charge you to access their content. Vsauce, a youtube channel, is a perfect example. It is not advised to start charging initially but once you have a niche and are flourishing pretty well then you can start charging for a few videos. Rates can vary from Rs 50 – Rs 200 depending on duration and niche.
In Crowdsourcing model, you take help of internet users to start a service, run a company, or launch a product. Khan academy is a very popular educational channel where they daily upload videos on a wide variety of topics for school and college students. All their videos are free, although they ask for donations to help them keep going.
You too can crowdsource donations in form of money or resources that will help you in making content for your audience. You can start accepting donations by creating a instamojo account.
#6. Direct sell your products
If you already have a product which you can sell, then don’t shy away from showcasing it to your audience to sell it. Many youtubers have even started to sell their own merchandise of clothes as a way to make money.
You can provide a link to your product and help your audience understand it’s value so that people will appreciate and buy your product.
#7. Customer leads for your business
A very popular educational channel called Gate Lectures by Ravindrababu Ravula makes videos for engineering students, though all his videos are free but to get access to the whole course, you need to go to his website and purchase the whole course. That way he leads his audience to his business.
Content is the king, always work on making your content worthy as your audience will happily follow you if you make them wanting for more.
Those were the different ways through which you can monetize your videos on Youtube. But, if you plan to create a youtube channel and start making money you can refer this article of mine where I show how to do it through a step by step process starting YouTube Channel and making money from YouTube.
6 ways to earn money from website or blog
#1. Using Adsense
Google Adsense is the simplest way to earn money from your blog. It’s a free tool which places ads on website/blog based on the content of the website. Once it is setup, you can earn on a cost per click(CPC) basis depending up on the amount the advertiser is willing to pay. Adsense pays about 1$ for 1000 pageviews but it widely varies with the audience and country.
One of the disadvantages because of which I don’t like to use Adsense on my blog is that it spoils the experience of my readers.
#2. Selling Ad Space
Once you have done a good job of launching your blog, you can start selling your advertising space. You can charge high amount directly to a few advertisers for putting their banners on your website rather than relying on Adsense’s relatively low earning Ads.
It always helps to have an advertising kit which has a brief of your niche, your audience type, and your rates. You can use it to reach out to businesses to grab a deal to display ads on your blog.
#3. Selling E-books
Successful bloggers sell e-books as a way to not only share their knowledge on various topics but also to earn money. One of the tips I would like to share is to always write valuable content for free and highly valuable premium content in the paid version of e-books.
#4. Paid Newsletters
This is a pretty new segment but a proven one. I myself have implemented it and it worked really well. Paid newsletter is where you send email newsletters to your subscribers on topics that provide valuable information.

#5. Selling Online Courses
If you have mastery over something, then you can create a dedicated course and start selling it on your website/blog. Make sure to create a course that shall be of high value to your customers.
I myself have launched a content marketing course to help people with Idea Generation, Writing Awesome Content and SEO.
#6. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is the most powerful tool for bloggers and Internet marketers to monetize their website/blog. In affiliate marketing, you sign up with the affiliate programs to promote their products. All you need to do is to share the relevant affiliate links with your readers. Once they purchase the product by clicking on the link, you make a commission.
You can opt for Amazon / Flipkart affiliate program or approach brands related to your niche and start linking their products to make money. You can make 10-13% commission on Amazon, Flipkart, and around 10% commission on other brands per sale.
I decided to use affiliate marketing to monetize my traffic. Why? Because you add value to your reader’s life by recommending the right product through affiliate marketing.
Those were the different ways through which you can monetize your website/blog. If you want to know how to create a website/blog in less than 5 minutes you can refer this step by step guide on starting your blog.
