Everyone is out there trying to make fast money off of the internet. In all honesty, most of the internet monetization stuff isn’t that fast. It’s more automated. Therefore, the more you do it, the more residual income gets generated in the background.
That doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make fast money.
Affiliate Marketing Is The Fastest YouTube Money Maker
If you are looking for the fastest method of making money off YouTube, it’s definitely got to be affiliate marketing. With publisher payouts, you need lots of views and clicks to be making decent money at all. With affiliate marketing, it’s possible to be making $50-$100 (more even) per each view that converts.
But your videos must convert!
If you’re getting paid as a YouTube publisher, each view will count towards payment. It will be a very insignificant amount, but assuming the video will consistently get views throughout it’s life, it will always generate revenue in the background.
With affiliate marketing, you must get your traffic to convert in order to make any money. That means having a call to action, using coupon codes in the video, making sure the affiliate link is in the description (duh!) and so on.
The video must be compelling enough to sell the viewer on whatever it is, be it product, service, network, whatever. What this means exactly will vary greatly from niche to niche. For example, selling clothing and apparel will definitely require a different approach than selling electronics and so on.
More Videos Means More Opportunities
This doesn’t mean go out and rehash the same content 50 times. But having more videos will usually always mean more income. These videos might be selling the same product (using a different approach) or selling different products and services.
Some programs may convert better than others. Playing around with different ideas will show you what works and what doesn’t.
Find Affiliate Programs Related To Hobbies and Interests
If you’ve got a personal interest in the niche, you’ll have a much easier time brainstorming video ideas. You’ll also probably be more enthusiastic, making the video more compelling and a better sell to viewers.
