In this video, you will learn 3 criteria that affect in your YouTube ad revenue. In addition, you will learn 3 cool tricks how you can increase your income on YouTube.

1. Location of your viewer

If your viewers are from the Western countries such as the United states, Canada, Australia or somewhere in Europe, you can earn a MUCH higher income from YouTube than when your viewers are from third-world countries such as Nigeria, Bangladesh, India, Philippines, etc.

Therefore, your ad revenue will most likely be much higher when you create content in English than in other languages.

In a nutshell: US / Europe pays a lot. Third-world countries pay very little.

2. How many ads do you add there?

The more ads you add into your videos, the more income you will most likely earn. If your video is less than 10 minutes, you can only add one ad at the beginning of your video but if your video is more than 10 minutes, you can add more ads.

Having more ads means also that YouTube will make more money which can affect positively in your rankings on YouTube.

That being said, you also need to keep in mind that adding a lot of ads, may affect viewers’ experience negatively so you shouldn’t probably add too many ads to your videos.

What to do: I add usually one ad every 4 minutes on my videos.

3. What type of content do you produce?

Advertisers are willing to pay more money depending on what kind of videos you create.

For example: Business-related videos pay 5x more than videoblogs on my channel.

If you are creating “general lifestyle” videos, you will most likely earn that much ad revenue.

But if your content is something related to business or topics where a lot of money is being made, you can expect to have a higher ad revenue.

=> How to make 50 times more money?

There are a couple of ways how you can quickly increase your income on YouTube. I know people who have over 100,000 subscribers that are not making as much money than those with less than 5,000 subscribers. It all depends on what you do with your videos.

My #1 recommended way to increase your income easily on YouTube is

1. Affiliate marketing

With affiliate marketing you don’t need any own products because you can simply make money by leaving a link to someone else’s products.

Income potential: Unlimited. My personal record is $2,000 for a single sale. (Note! This is a potential. Your income will depend on the products that you promote.)

2. Sponsored videos

Companies and brands are willing to pay you money for showing their products in your videos. Some YouTubers earn $10,000’s for just quickly mentioning the products so the potential is huge.

However, in order to do this, you’ll usually need to have some following so companies are willing to pay you. That’s why I recommend that you start with affiliate marketing.

3. Sell your own products

This is where you may potentially make the biggest profits.

However, if you are starting out, you may not have your own products or it may take a lot of time and money to create so it’s much cheaper to get started with affiliate marketing.

For example, I am selling my email marketing course for $397. Every time someone goes and buys the course, I earn $397 (minus fees).

I hope you have found these tips helpful and valuable.

Thank you Roope,

You manage to get in a lot of great information in your videos! I haven't started YouTube, but it is a possibility sometime down the track. That is great idea and double value... to use the YouTube video itself to provide training on WA itself!

Best wishes,

Great video Roope.
Thanks a lot.

Just a quick question, where do you find these "illustration short videos"
for example the one where you show the Amazon building.

Could you share please this info?
Hope it is not some kind of your know-how : )

But again, it is very professionally made video.

Hi Mike!

Actually, my video editor adds them. I hired him from Upwork and I sent the video clips to him and he adds them.

I asked where he takes those clips and he mentioned that it's some website called Envato where he finds the clips.
