Just wanted to give a quick update on the Youtube video I made a little while back.
As you can see below it made me $350 this month and got a total of 7,000 views on Youtube, with 3680 clicks to Amazon.
This video is based on a product that's converted very well for me in Google before and I'm guessing not every product converts this well but I'm still excited about the results.
This video only took me one day to do and this is only ONE month of results. This is a winter focused keyword and we haven't even hit winter yet! I still have December (I'm guessing when it's going to be most profitable), January, February and at least the beginning of March.
Plus, with Camtasia, I can go back and edit portions of the video without having to re-do the entire thing. So when next winter comes around, I can just add one or two new products (45 minutes of work) and reupload it.
All in all one days work is probably going to make $3000 or more for me in the next few years (if only everyday was this productive).
Keep in mind 7,000 views a month isn't that much either. If this video kept this pace up for the whole year (it won't because traffic will slow down to a crawl in the summer), it'll get 84,000 views. That's good but you can find keywords that can beat that. Similar style videos with different best of keywords can get up to a 1,000,000 views in a year. And there's plenty that get between 100,000 to 1,000,000.
Sometime this month I'll give a short tutorial on using Camtasia to make a best of video. This way if you decide to spend the $250 it takes to buy Camtasia you can hit the ground running.
The last few months I've gone back and forth on what I should do for 2019 and have finally settled on my plan.
I hired a Filipino based on JerryHuangs course here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/hiring-writer-like-a-pro-even-if-youve-never-hired-before
And she's going to be handling my nicheless Amazon site from here out on out. After seeing some excellent results from different members here at Wealthy Affiliate I've decided to start a affiliate site to promote Wealthy Affiliate. I'll be writing for this site 5 times a week. Writing about affiliate marketing is pretty easy for me and I'll be spending the first half of my day doing this.
The second half of days Monday through Friday will be focused on creating Youtube content.
I set some pretty high goals for myself this year and for the next few years and I intend on reaching them. I think this is how I can do it and I'm pretty excited for the challenge.
I'll be giving updates along the way as usual.
Thanks for reading and hopefully 2019 brings you more sales than ever!
