Can I have a decent Income by promoting my affiliate site by creating 2-3 Youtube Videos a day?

23 replies
I am a newbie in affiliate marketing and just got finished building my first website in a very competitive Niche of Health and fitness. I started creating youtube videos and I can finish 2 to 3 videos per day. Do you think I can have enough traffic in a couple of months by just creating multiple videosin youtube? For a start up, my target initial target income is at least $500 just to compensate our monthly bills. As of now I am still studying paid traffic such as FB ads, adfly, and adsense.

I hope you can help me guys to give me some tips on how can achieve this small amount just to give me a boost to strive for better opportunities online.

Thanks in advance..

    Assuming you're relying on organic traffic only, and hope to make $500 per month from it within a couple of months, it's possible but unlikely.

    Without a decent investment or contacts in the niche, most Youtube channels take longer to get traction.

    #justbeinghonest

    But if you know you can sell 1 product at $500, or sell 2 at $250, or 5 at $100, etc, etc then sure why not.

    My tip would be: If you have a plan on how to monetise the traffic you do get, through building a highly targeted email list for example, then you could probably make enough to invest back in to advertising, to pull more people into your funnel, and then scale up.

    Good luck dude.

    Ofcourse you can if you stick with it and master it. However you'll need to create engaging videosone that would engage your visitors, create curiousity and make them want to know more about your offer.

    Another thing you need to consider is good keywords that are related to your offers. So use low to medium competition keywords if you want to rank quickly on Youtube or Google

    Be that as it may this can be slow at the beginning but with time it will grow. Hope that helps

    It is possible when you have a good amount of subscribers on your channel.
    And it only depends on how relevant is your video for targeted customers and it will take time. If you want to make decent money then you should have to make the decent videos also. I would suggest you along with youtube, be focus more on your website content and you can also promote your website through some advertising services like page 20, Google Adwords that help you in increasing website traffic and increase the visibility of your website.

    Hope!this would help you. Best of luck!

    Creating 2 to 3 videos a day is actually Great, For sure you will get lots of traffic from YouTube but, That will depend on the videos quality and the Optimization that you ll implement, I suggest you keep doing that while optimizing your Website and putting more valuable Content in it ..
    Also, try to Create and Grow a FB fun page and a FB group.

    Sure, you can make a decent income by doing this, but, this of course, depends on what you are doing.

    Are you selling a digital product, or are you promoting a CPA offer?

    Beyond this, there a two things that you need to consider.

    First, can you keep up the pace of creating 2-3 videos per day, for the long haul.

    If you cannot, I would suggest dropping it to one maybe two videos--something that you can keep up with.

    Second, I would recommend you branching out into another form of traffic generation--it does not need to be FB ads.

    But just find something else that you can do that can gradually bring in more and more traffic.

    But, most of all, do not give up!

    Keep going until you get to your income goal.

    Hope this helps!

    No one can possibly tell you. There are too many factors involved like niche, competition, the amount of traffic available, how you optimize or fail to optimize, etc. etc.

    Focus on quality, not quantity.

    Also, Adfly is for suckers.

    Before spending any money on FB ads learn how to get the most out of them. Here's a start:

      From the information given, this is the only truthful answer. And to address your supplemental question, yes - you might very well be wasting your time.

      Before committing yourself to creating 2-3 videos a day, first monitor the performance of your existing ones. How many views are they getting? What's the click-through rate of visitors to your offer? Are you actually getting any conversions at all?

      My concern is that from your opening question, you seem to be equating quantity with success, rather than effectiveness.

    Is it possible? Yes.
    is it likely? Probably not.

    At the same time you really need to test and try it to see the results you can get. You may need to try several different niches, strategies, back end offers, etc

    I am assuming that you are doing youtube SEO too to get your youtube videos rank. Share them in niche related groups on social sites to gain follower at fast rate.

    If the videos you are making is information enriched and of good quality then you will not find it tough to earn the amount you have mentioned.

    Wishing you all the best , hope you achieve target asap.

    Yes, you can.

    Provided you have an introduction video first followed by a series of videos giving value as in what your target audience likes, needs and wants to know.

    But if you are looking to make a full-time income asap, that is something I cannot help you.

    Unless you have a network of people who know, like and trust you.

    Here is the Youtube channel by love guru David Tian just to give you an example of what I mean by videos giving value.

    You do not have to use this only in Dating niche but in any niche be it IM, Business Or Health.

    If you've already got a large channel, sure. Otherwise it will take a while to build up the following.

    Hi EP,

    To make money through YouTube, give all of your attention and energy to giving.

    Meaning, focus on creating one video a day - if that - but really making it pop, solving problems from your niche.

    Then get off of your channel; build friendships with top entrepreneurs in your niche, commenting on their videos, emailing them asking how you can help them, promoting them via your channel.

    Detach largely from the money driver. Give your focus toward having fun creating videos, and you will do the studying, learning, practicing, creating and connecting that eventually earns you income.

    When you cease asking a question like this, you will be on the right path

    I have no idea what your video skills are or if the content
    will captivate an audience once you attract them to take a
    look but I can tell you this... FOR SURE...

    If your videos are effective at selling the traffic on taking the next
    step you can make money IMMEDIATELY with Facebook ads.

    It's easy to define a target market... assuming you know the
    characteristics of your target market and the results start filtering
    in immediately so you can tweak as necessary to maximize results.

    i think this is possible, but also, i think you should try to join groups on social networks, that are related to your offer, and try to advertise there also, it should be a big plus, then also, if you are just intending for free traffic, you could try to join forums and blogs also where you could share your links, and some threads for more traffic! good luck buddy!

    You can do some testing and make Review Videos of some CB health products. Get a Review Copy from Creator and just do a walk thru on screen capture of the actual product.

  • Yes I think it's possible. I haven't used YouTube much for affiliate promotions but if your videos are entertaining and you have good and regular content, your audience will build. Please keep us posted on how it goes!

    My first online source of income was also a Youtube channel in the Fitness niche. I was uploading motivational videos and compilations of fit people, with affiliate links in the video description.

    I was making around 300$ per month, but I was only uploading 2-3 times per week. If you upload 2-3 videos per day, then yes, you can definitely get to 500$ or more.

    Good luck!

      Hi Rhadoo,

      That made me inspired to pursue creating videos How long does it take to get views on your videos?

      Best regards!

        This was back in 2013 when Youtube was not so crowded, and it took about 2-3 months to really start to get more views.

        I was commenting a lot on other fitness videos and getting involved in discussions, plus I had good titles and keywords.

        I hope this helps!
