By Adair Jones

Making money with YouTube is just one way to market yourself or product or service on the internet, and it is a very lucrative way. And within YouTube, you can create several ways to produce dollars.

To start of with, a basic knowledge of why YouTube can be so lucrative will benefit your reason to make money.

- YouTube is rank #2 of all search engines globally,

- An estimated 90% of internet exposure will be video by 2015,

- Every minute, 60+hrs of video are uploaded to Youtube

- YouTube is the #2 search engine on the world wide web.

The results due to video exposure helps with the promotion of your content because viewers become better informed and knowledgeable since watching is easier than reading. Visitors are 6 times more likely to take action than from a website or article. And videos build trust because they know there is a real person behind what is being promoted.

These few brass tacks on YouTube and the strength of video will have you choosing an option to making money with YouTube. You can use attraction marketing techniques to position yourself the expert and selling your own products and services to make all the money. You may want to simply market other entity products and services and make affiliate commissions. Engage in revenue sharing with YouTube to allow advertisers to post on our videos. Or just down right pay for prime virtual real estate with PPC, Pay Per Click advertising. Besides the latter, being able to create traffic is a must to make money.

Paid traffic is specific in it’s own way and it will get your advertising seen by the masses. As long as your copy-writing skills are honed, you get clicks. Once you stopping paying for an ad, you stop getting views.

If you don’t pay for traffic, then you must generate traffic, and this is called free traffic. You’ll need to become skillful in the ways of knowing what your target market is thinking and looking for. This also includes learning how use the internet like a fine edged sword to get your audience before your videos with focused marketing. Unlike PPC, you can stop posting videos and the previously released videos, once ranked at and near the top, will keep on producing leads and income.

Using your video posts for the mere pleasure of entertaining your audience, but still wanting to earn money for the publication of your content, is done with YouTube’s partner program. You get paid around $2 for every 1000 completed views, so you need volume coming to your video to make real money.

Ideally, in the grand scheme of making money with YouTube videos, you would want to market yourself before marketing your product or business; therefore making it easy to create your very own products because you become the person of influence, and the expert with the pain killers for their pain (solutions to their problems). This kind of marketing yields long term true wealth.

One can also choose to be an affiliate marketer and promote other people’s products or services for commissions on their results. This is very lucrative method of marketing on YouTube because your product promotion can be a simple “how to” or “review” video which are very popular in the YouTube community.

Three ways to use YouTube for profits, 3 ways that need traffic. Since PPC is not an option, then you need to get that traffic for free. This is accomplished by knowing how to master the internet and crush the competition.

Maximum exposure it needed so you will want to follow these guidelines below to be successful.

Here are the criteria:

1. Introduce yourself and capture their attention quickly by stating the reason for the video. You have about 5 critical seconds to secure your viewer and keep him there till the end, or loose him to searching again.

2. Identify the problem that you want to solve, and make it the reason why you are posting the video. Exploit the pain and relate it to the viewer. Don’t spend too much time dwelling in the salt filled wound, but do bring it up and even offer some person facts of how you experienced the same pain already.

3. Offer the solution. This is when you explain how to you have the pain killer and you are the expert at how to use it. Give some facts and statistics of your personal results and even results of a mentor or sponsor you may have. This will lay the foundation and establish credibility.

4. Have a strong call-to-action. That means to not assume they will click on the link for more information, just because it is there. It means to tell your audience to “click the link” within the video as well. People will do what you tell them to if it follows a great video.

Master those 4 steps for a quality video and incorporate some techniques to getting high rankings and being noticed more. This will add tons of more traffic.

Write your title to be a specific long tail keyword or, without sounding redundant, have a shorter keyword repeat within the title. This will make your video more relevant to the search engine. Keyword tags for the video should be as many related keywards as possible. This helps to guide traffic towards your video – relevancy again. If your keyword is “pruning hybrid tea roses” and some searches for “tea roses,” that search gets directed to you. Knowing what people may search for and chosing a long tail keywords will require you do learn keyword research. This isn’t difficult and is crucial to your success.

Your thumbnail image should be an interest still frame from your video. Make your viewer wonder about it enough watch the video. Active and older YouTube accounts get more options for the thumbnail, but new accounts get to choose from 3. Do the best with what you are working with.

Annotations, the windows and quotes that pop up during a video, can be a great added feature as long as you do not over do it. They can get in the way, people may read instead of listen, and you could annoy the viewer so much that they will find someone else to get the same information from. Performed strategically, they can serve the viewer and also become an enforcer to a call-to-action.

Be original. You may get into character, or play a character from time to time, use props, animations, music, and anything to spice up your videos. Think outside of the box, see what other popular videos are doing, and be original.

To be obvious, get high views and ratings. You can jump start making money with YouTube by taking massive action and posting it on all social media platforms, emailing it to team members, adding it to a blog post and referring to it from an article. This will accelerate your stats.

Create a type of video to appeal to your audience. “How to” and “instructional” videos are popular, as well as inspirational and personal experience videos. Save room for review videos because you can review people, products, companies, services, software, or books. Keyword research what people are looking for and do a review on it. What ever type of video create, always give away value.

Your traffic should finish watching your video with more knowledge or with a new skill they can apply themselves.

Respect others by sticking to ethical rule #1. Do not talk negative towards others or about others. This only makes you look bad, and professionals never make this mistake. Besides the possibility of getting in trouble, it is just bad business. Pass along positive feed back and be tasteful with your opinions.
