    How to earn money using YouTube?

    My friend is saying that she only earns money through youtube. Is it really possible to earn money using youtube? If yes how?

    While it is certainly possible to earn through YouTube, remember that your primary goal should be to entertain.  Make videos that people want to watch.  If you do that you will find it much easier to monetize your site.  If your primary goal is to make money and your video is not up to par, then you risk losing your audience from watching future videos.

    Having said all this understand that being entertaining is not necessarily to try and make your video funny.  While it can be, remember that not all of us can pull off funny.  Besides what is funny to you may be offensive to others.  You have to be very careful.

    Good Luck

      You have to remember that selling directly from, i.e., affialiate links, etc., is not a very easy because people don't typically buy after going to YouTube.  It's not really a selling channel.  Some do buy. but most don't.

    To make money on youtube, make sure you have entertaining or informative original content.  Youtube will only allow you to make money with original content.

    Then you will need to enable your videos for monetization.  Once they are monetized, you will start making money from the ads that are shown.  Just know that ads may not always show on your videos.

    The other way is to become a youtube partner.  If is a more in depth process, but works similar to just monetizing your videos.  You will have more benefits if you become a youtube partner though.

    Yes it's possible but it's hard work. The average CPM is $2 per 1000 views. You have to be a partner either with youtube or with an affiliated network the operates on youtube.

      For example in the gaming industry there are multiple companies that have set up networks to partner people. This takes the copyright out of the equasion as for as video game footage is concerned. Machinima, IGN, Yeousch etc are all examples

    You just have to make videos of things that people are searching for. Just like how you write hubs or how you write blog posts. Bring enough eyes to your videos and monetize it with ads and you will make some money. What kind of videos you put up are up to you. I would go with more of what you know than what you think will sell. Because in the end it's easier to come up with videos and ideas for videos off what you know. For instance a friend of mine does videos on bicycle how to like how to clean your chain, how to put on aero bars etc. Another girl I know she does fingernail art how to videos. Let me tell you she gets huge views. Her videos are more like how to do different kinds of fingernail painting and stuff like that so it's just whatever you are into make some videos.

    There are many ways you can earn money through youtube. Think outside the box. There are some awful videos that are hits on there so having unique quality content isn't the sole answer. Original entertaining vids will help though this will get people sharing your vids. Youtube is a numbers game just like any method of making money. Here's one way.

    Set up a website in a particular niche selling a product (lets say weightloss)
    and the product is an ebook.

    Go to a few bodybuilding shows or something similar and make loads of videos. with one show you could probably cut 100 videos from your footage 10-20 sec vids, Think of all  the fitness celebrities you'll see.

    Then in your vid, display your website throughout the video and at the end.

    This is just one way of making money, You don't have to worry about subscribers or the low payout on G ads and you don't have to worry about massive traffic. Your aim is to et people to your website. Your traffic even though it maybe small is semi targeted traffic. so low numbers could still turn in to sales each time.

    Good luck

    You need a lot of traffic to make anything. I have tried putting ads on my videos on there and I haven't made anything yet after months.
