I think we all had the luxury to stumble over so called "make money with youtube video" ebooks. So i did, and even though following post of mine is originally posted on MMD, i am tempted to share a summary of it here aswell.
Bottom line is
Traffic + Conversion = Cash ..THAT´S IT ...
But why do many many approaches fail? Where it lacks of understanding or techniques?
Who hasnt tried or seen attempts either failing in traffic or failing in conversion?
The chances, that you create a viral video with funney or good content by yourself hitting the 1.000.000 mark is not easy.
It could happen - why not - but you dont have the promise, nor the consistency to succeed, which you need to be successfull.
But sure enough there will always be "interest peaks", new songs, new games, new movie trailers, big events, big news, etc etc ..partially pushed by conventional media who will lead to high demand or views in youtube in particular areas.
- How and where to recognize and to pick up those trends early?
- How to use strategical elements (title, tags, trends, links...and other helpers ) wisely and how to implement those.
- How to "push and promote" your video and how to monetize your views properly !
- Last but not least, how to stay within the TOS of youtube.
Whereas many ebooks reflect the general idea of various concepts they lack in my opinion in details to make things succeed.
Filling niches with videos, "hoping" for good traffic and adding offers or CPAs in the descriptions.......
"It ain´t soo easy baba" ...
TIP: "EZ1 Page Video" by Kyle Kasterson -for example- instead adds additionally few very good tricks and methods to push and promote your videos.
Here and then it happens that i watch TV (very rare) and in the daily news they showed a funney new youtube video.
One of those who went viral and attracted attention.
Well, so i looked it up and what i saw was a talking dog.
But the other thing what jumped instantly in my eyes was
43.565.703 VIEWS IN 2MONTH !!! daang...
IF you could, then you would have made 435.000$ in two month with a "speaking dog".
That is worth a thought ..isn´t it ?
But, how and why to create a big viral wave on youtube, IF you can "surf" on a rolling one. And whoever surfed, knows to catch the wave early.
5 Days later after that first clip above is released another guy named RayWilliamJohnson released a totally different Video, but
using the same keywords / phrase in quotes "Ultimate Dog Tease" PLUS the link of the first one in his tags and gets over 7 Million Views in not even 2 month !!
...BUT he DOES HAVE an AD running.
What he probably did, is recognizing upward trending youtube videos (there are ways to do that) those with potential to go viral, copy pasted the tactical important elements out of it for his purpose and surfed on this wave.
Only difference...he monetized better.
Ergo: he ended up having the 2nd most watched youtube video for the search term "Ultimate Dog Tease" !!! and as people will look, search and share a new viral video, his will pop up and will get clicked in drag aswell.
If you dont believe me, just google case studies of non-Internet Marketing people, who made more then 100k$/year with ONE viral video.
There are enough examples out there. How many "viral tending" movies i have seen on youtube being not monetized AT ALL, but sure enough not for long, till someone tells them "hey dude..you have views in then millions, make money with that"
Good example for that is freddiew with "Future First Person Shooter".
The working part is to catch the right wave and also the monetizing side.
May it be in links in the descriptions or conventional methods which can be studied here
Nevertheless, there is enough room to slip through and get this concept working.
Do not get distracted by the content of a video, it is in this case really secondary !
As this is my first post on warrior-forums i was not allowed to post images or links, so forgive me "cutting" the links / just copy paste them how they are and it still works.
