So YouTube Just Paid Me $2,053.47
Would you agree that is significant money?
What would you do with an extra $2k+ a month? (let me know down in the comments)
So, the natural question is how did my online business earn me this type of money?
Easy... YouTube Adsense.
I have for YEARS cried and moaned trying to teach the masses that YouTube Adsense is quite possibly the WORST way that you can monetize your YouTube channel. (Honestly, I still stand by that to a certain extent...)
But when the channel pays you $2k or more a month, you really cannot ignore the fact that it can become a pretty GREAT source of income.
For the record, this is not affiliate offers, this is not sponsorship deals, this is not merchandise... this is straight up YouTube Adsense... YouTube Partner Program (YPP).
Getting to that first 1000 subscribers is difficult, it really is, but I have been using tricks of the trade that I have learned from EXTENSIVE research and have found ways to reach these goals faster.
As a result, all of my sweat, toil, and anguish and time is paying off.
There is nothing better than working extra hard on something and getting more than a 'pat on the back' form your boss, just so that he can give you more work.
I know that Jay has been doing webinars in recent weeks talking about the power of YouTube, but honestly, the power of YouTube cannot be fully quantified. It's difficult to put into words.
It is quite possibly the hottest traffic source in the world right now, if you are not taking advantage of it, then you are truly missing out.
Now this is not saying that Blogging is no longer viable, but I honestly believe YouTube has to be part of your content strategy as well... even if you do not want to show your face. (which is OK, too)
So if something is holding you back from starting YouTube to add-on to your business and help it grow, ignore it and push through.
Create a video already... just do it... without thinking. You quickly realize that your fears and concerns are all in your head.
If you plan on using YouTube right now or sometime in the future, please let me know in the comments or throw at me what your biggest hold up is in starting YouTube and let's see if we can push through together.
