Youtube ads are not only slow to pay out but also extremely inconsistent. You can’t really count on them to be stable or predictable, and that’s why many YouTubers have turned away from them in favor of other monetization strategies. But the question remains — what should you replace your Youtube ads with? Well, there are plenty of other options out there, but one of the best ways to go about it is by partnering with other creators and influencers on platforms like Patreon and Wishpond. This article will show you the alternatives to YouTube Ads.
There are numerous ways to monetize on YouTube. The first is through direct revenue from YouTube ads. Now, what are YouTube ads? They’re simply short video clips or trailers of your content (yes they do have sound). In order to run ads on your channel, you must be verified as a YouTube Partner. This takes some time and resources to get verified, but it has its advantages
If your livelihood depends on YouTube ad revenue, then you need to figure out how to get out. YouTube recently instituted a new policy: In order to qualify for ads that are visible to viewers in certain countries and regions, you must be able to confirm that your content does not violate any advertiser-friendly guidelines. This means that a lot of content creators might see their ads disappear in just a few days. This can have devastating consequences for small channels that rely on those ads for their income.
Selling merchandise is a great way to build your brand on YouTube. There are two simple ways to start selling merch online: directly through a store like Teespring or Redbubble, or by using print-on-demand technology and uploading shirts/stickers to your website. That being said, you’ll want to make sure you have at least 200 subscribers before offering merch for sale.
Affiliate marketing is a popular form of internet marketing that involves earning a commission by promoting someone else’s product. So instead of depending on YouTube Ads, you can make money online by becoming an affiliate marketer for physical or digital products and services. This is also one of my favorite ways to make money since it’s fairly easy and passive. For example, you can sign up for a company like Commission Junction and promote their product on your site or via email links.
One of our most successful self-publishing authors made over $300,000 in a single year selling eBooks. All through word-of-mouth and social media marketing. While it might not seem like a big deal to sell digital products that are priced at less than $100 each, keep in mind that we’re talking about someone who did virtually no marketing. Selling digital products on YouTube is one of my favorite ways of making money off YouTube.
If you’re able to build an engaged following around your videos and content, consider setting up a Patreon campaign. For $5 per month, you can provide access to exclusive content that wouldn’t be available to everybody e.g gain access to videos before they get released. This is a very interesting way of making money off YouTube. I published a video about this topic on my channel, check it out HERE and subscribe.
