3 Ways For You To Make It Big In 2017 With Video Marketing
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a newbie who is just getting started online or a seasoned marketer who is looking to grow their business.
Video marketing is huge and if you aren’t utilizing this form of marketing into your biz, you’re leaving some serious money on the table and you should re-think your whole marketing strategy.
Listed below are 3 of my top ways for you to make it big with videos in 2017 and increase your overall revenue.
Start Your Own YouTube Channel
If you’re looking for a place to build an audience, interact with your subscribers while creating engaging content and earning money while doing so then I think you should seriously consider launching your very own YouTube channel.
- 500 hours of video content is uploaded every minute
- Statistics show that over 147 billion views were generated in November 2016 alone
- Your blog post has 53% of a better chance of ranking on the first page if you create a video post and link to it
Millions of people across the globe are generating a full time income from Youtube alone and there’s no reason why you can’t get a piece of this pie as well.
How Will You Do This?
This really all depends on you.
What are some of your hobbies or interests?
Let’s say that you may happen to be a huge gamer interested in getting paid to play games and broadcast on Youtube.
You could start up your very own gaming channel and help other people who are into the same type of games as you and need some help with a particular game.
They may be looking for a detailed strategy on how to beat a powerful boss in Final Fantasy or looking for a walkthrough on how to solve a difficult puzzle in Resident Evil.
With the right equipment, you could step in and help them out by offering a walkthrough or providing them with a detailed strategy on how to beat a powerful boss.
How Will You Earn Money?
There are 2 ways for you to earn money with Youtube which are:
- Google Adsense- Every time someone clicks on an ad when watching one of your YT videos you’ll earn a small percentage of their advertising revenue.
It can take quite some time before you’ll be earning any substantial amount of money from this but it can add up over time.
- Affiliate Offers- 1 of the best ways to earn money on Youtube is through Affiliate Marketing. You could do a unboxing of many of the popular products within your niche.
You could then showcase the one that you feel would give your audience the most bang for their buck.
Another great way to start earning money from YouTube would be to do product reviews.
This is a fun way for you to not only get paid good money, but also the possibility to get free samples or a review copy of the product or service you’re reviewing.
Offer Video Services
Youtube not your thing?
Have you ever considered offering your video services to other people who are in search of this type of service?
With over 500 hours of video content being uploaded to YT every minute, wouldn’t you say that this would be a service that’s in high demand?
You could easily earn anywhere from $50-$100 per video along with the chance to earn even more money by offering additional a la carte services.
There are places like Fiverr.com where you can register for a free account and sell your video services through this platform.
You can set your prices at whatever you want. You can also decide how long it would take you to complete each order.
This is an outstanding way to make some serious cash if you’re good talking on video and know what you’re doing.
Sell Video Courses
With Facebook live and Youtube being the craze in 2017, there seem to be more and more people live streaming and snap chatting then there was just a few years ago.
Video also happens to be a really powerful marketing tool and like I said earlier, there are millions of people across the globe that are making a full time living with this.
You could put together some kind of video course that shows people how to get started in video marketing.
You could also create multiple courses on the many aspects of video marketing and earn a really nice income from this alone.
You could sell your courses at places like Amazon.com, or Ebay and only pay a small fee once your items sell.
My Final Thoughts
Whenever I sit back and think of all the potential that’s available online, it literally blows my mind.
With video being the preferred way for people to get their news and find the information that they’re looking for, it’s imperative that you have some type of videos incorporated into your business.
You could easily create 3 separate income streams from the ideas that I’ve given you guys above.
In order to have any success with video marketing, it’s going to require that you first understand marketing in general before diving straight into videos.
Makes sense don’t it?
Sure there are many places that you could learn about this online if you do your reasearch but how far do you think you’ll get by doing this?
The place that has helped me understand this whole internet marketing thing is Wealthy Affiliate.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to learn basic marketing or looking to be the next Youtube star, you could definitely benefit from WA.
