YouTube is the top video social network where new channels can still gain traction. There’s an over-saturation misconception where some people may think it’s too late to create content — whether it be a YouTube channel, podcast, or blog.
There’s also a misconception that you need to have a big audience to make your first $1,000 on YouTube.
Even if you have a few hundred subscribers, you can make $1,000 on YouTube.
With that said, let’s jump into the different strategies you can use to earn income from YouTube.
#1: Offer A Service
In each video description, I include a strategy call link viewers can use to schedule a free call with me. In this free call, we discuss if we are a good fit to work together.
I coach people on podcasting, YouTube, and building their authority platform. I also have services available for people who want the work done for them.
The great thing about a service is that you can generate recurring revenue. If you get a single done-for-you client, you can easily make $1,000+ on YouTube.
As long as you keep showing up, providing value, and reminding people they can schedule that strategy call with you, you’re on your way to your first $1,000.
#2: Create Product Review Videos
Not only can you make money through a service, but you can also make money through product review videos.
In a recent video, I shared the alternative ClickFunnels set-up I use to power up my websites and profit.
Each of those tools has their own affiliate programs which pay me each time I make a sale.
I also get sales through my Amazon affiliate links which I use in each video description to promote my books.
You don’t need many of those types of sales to reach $1,000.
#3: Sell Your Own Products
You don’t have to stop at selling other people’s products. You can also sell your own stuff and make $1,000 on YouTube.
While selling your own products takes more time (i.e. creating the sales page and product), you have more control over your product.
If you are not happy with your conversion rate, you can tweak the landing page to boost your conversation rate.
You can also create multiple products that complement each other. Selling your own books is one way to make $1,000 on YouTube, but if you sell training courses, that’s even better.
Not only can you charge far more for a training course than a book, but YouTube viewers already watch videos which makes a training course an easier transition for them.
