How To Make Money Off Youtube?

Interested in how to make money off Youtube?

It’s really not that hard. Here’s why…

Have you ever gone onto Youtube or receive an email from someone about a hilarious video? You know the type; cute babies, someone falling off a bike, a blunder by a tv host on a live broadcast.

Did you notice how many views some of these videos get? Tens or hundreds of millions!

And the craziest thing is that it all happens within months, weeks or even just days.

Imagine you had a video on Youtube that was getting thousands of views every single day. Imagine that same video had a message at the end of it saying, “Check out my website at!”

Can you see where I’m going with this?

All it takes is for you to make a quick video (note: it doesn’t have to be long, in fact, the shorter the better). Something that’s funny or controversial. Something buzz-worthy.

Just make it using your own video camera or camera on your mobile phone.

Next, use the free Windows Movie Maker on your computer to add a message at the end directing viewers to your website.

Produce the video with Windows Movie Maker and upload it to Youtube. That’s it! It should only take you no more than 20 minutes from start to finish.

While your video is uploading to Youtube, you can enter in some details about the video. It’s important to have a catchy headline, something that will attract people’s attention.

Here’s some examples:




Another very important thing you should do to get visitors to your site is to put your link in the ‘Description’ of your video. It’s best to put it right at the beginning, like this: – Click here for a FREE video ecourse on how to make money online fast!

That’s all you need to do to make money off Youtube.

Okay, some of you may be thinking, “I don’t have my own website”.

No problem. Here’s what you can do to make money off Youtube right now without your own product or without a website…

1. Sign up for a free account at Clickbank.

2. Find a product that you would like to promote. Hint: pick something with a gravity higher than 50 (this means that it is popular and will convert into sales well).

3. Use a free url shortener (like to mask and shorten your Clickbank affiliate link.

4. Add this link to your video’s description.

Now that you know just how easy it is to make money off Youtube, let’s do some maths 🙂

Let’s say you spent just one day creating short videos and made about 20 of them, uploaded them to Youtube and added your website to the Description field and also at the end of your videos.

Let’s say your videos were only getting a total of about 20,000 views per month.

Now, let’s be very conservative and say that only 2% of those viewers were going to your website. That would be equal to 400 visitors per month.

That might not sound like a lot but that’s 400 free, targeted visitors to your website every single month on total autopilot… from only one day’s work! Imagine if you were to do that every day. I think you get the idea 🙂

  1. Hi, just wanted to say that you are right! generating traffic off of youtube is very easy and also I don’t think the majority of people realize that its the biggest site next to google. And that its also a’lot easier to get ranked for youtube vids then usual on-site SEO.

    Anyway thanks again John Lagoudaks, always love your CB products by the way 🙂

    1. Thanks John! Good point about the SEO advantages… I’ve heard that Google is putting more videos on the front page of search results. That’s what people want to see more of I guess.

  2. I though at first the making money or earning from youtube is quite impossible but when I read a lot of testimonial about it. I had a research and I proven it right 🙂

    Great tips. In fact, here in my country where I live, Youtube is a second search engine apart from Google and people are always uploading self made videos and presentations and I was amazed that they were able to kickstart their careers that way.

  5. Wow, this is great information! Thanks for sharing great ideas! I never knew using YouTube & Clickbank could be so profitable for the average person…That’s it! I’m mentally pumped for summer and the rest of 2011!

    1. Hi, great question! You need to go to the ‘Settings’ section of your Youtube account and then click on ‘Monetization’. In there you can apply to have Google ads displayed by clicking on the ‘Enable My Account’ button.
