You like watching videos on YouTube. Don’t you?

You are probably wondering what kind of stupid question is this?

Everyone does love watching videos on YouTube.

But, how about if you could earn thousand of the dollars from YouTube while watching videos?

You might be thinking, I am joking with you.

No, I am not.

It’s true, people are making money from YouTube with their insane and funny homemade videos.

You might have questions, what if I don’t know anything about YouTube, could I still be able to making money from YouTube?

Yes, you could earn even if you have never implemented any online money making methods.

In fact, anyone can make money from YouTube.

Why YouTube instead of Blogging?

Good question.

Blogging is the most recognized and probably one of the best ways to earn money online.

I don’t deny with it. Many people’s first choice is blogging.

But, do you know that 81% people never make even $100 from blogging?

Moreover, blogging takes time to show the results, and that will be only possible if you know how to blog.

In case of YouTube, you don’t need to be an expert blogger and invest lots of time to earn money online.

All you need is an active YouTube channel.

In today’s post, I will show you why the YouTube is the best way to earn passive income online.

Are you ready?

Let’s get started.

You don’t need to buy any domain or hosting

This is one of the core reasons, why I suggest you to choose YouTube to make money online over blogging.

Blogging is not free. You have to invest good amount of time and money before you able to make money from that.

Let’s see the breakdown of your blogging expenses:

  • Hosting – It would cost you around $65 a year, it would only be applicable for the first year — from next year onwards you might pay more than that approximately 90$ a year.
  • Domain – To start a blog you also need a domain name. The Domain name would cost you $40 for the first year, from the next year you might have to pay double money, you paid the first year.
  • WordPress Theme – If you are building a blog on WordPress, a premium theme would cost you around $50-150. However, you can use free WordPress theme – but that would have limited features.

There are other expenses such as plugins, content, feature images, etc.

In the final analysis, if you will sum up all the costs it will too much for a newbie blogger.

Moreover, despite investing money and lots of time, there is no guarantee that you will be able to make money from blogging.

Whereas, if we talk about making by YouTube, you don’t need all those things mentioned earlier.

Making a YouTube channel is free.

All you need is a Gmail account to create a YouTube channel.

The channel is a sort of separate section on YouTube, where your audience can see all the uploads and activity done by you.

Isn’t it cool that your content is hosted by a site, which is among world’s top five sites and at the one of the most powerful server presents in the world?

Therefore, if you are opting YouTube, you won’t need to face hosting and server issues.

All things considered, YouTube will be a great resource to make money without any investment.

Start making money from the very first day

The best part about earning with YouTube is that you can start earning from your video content on the very first day.

Join the YouTube, build a channel, upload a high-quality video and there you are, LIVE on YouTube.

You can upload any types of videos that you like. It can be funny moments or how to cook brown rice without losing its taste.

Every day people are uploading wide-variety of videos and making a decent amount of money from that.

For example – Charlie Bit My Finger a famous YouTube video where Howard Davies-Carr, the father of the boys, uploaded a video of the finger-biting scene with his camera after recording it.

That video went viral and Time ranked “Charlie Bit My Finger” as number one viral videos.

The family has made over £100,000 in advertising revenue from the video.

You should consider the following points while uploading a video on YouTube:

  1. Upload a video that does not breach YouTube or Adsense terms and conditions
  2. Upload a high-quality video
  3. Don’t upload any adult video that could cause to suspend your account

Adsense approval through YouTube channel is easy

Many bloggers wait for six months or sometime even more to get their Adsense account approved.

Especially, Indian and South Asian bloggers face this issue.

Google has special guidelines for them, their site should be at least six months old and should have a considerable amount of traffic and views.

But if you apply for Adsense via YouTube, chances of getting approval become easy.

Nevertheless, this Adsense account will not be the same as a traditional Adsense. Also, Ads on YouTube looks different from it show on the blogs.

All set platform with a huge audience

YouTube is the world’s second largest search engine and third most visited site after Google and Facebook.

That’s why when you upload your video on YouTube, it will be instantly available to billions of daily YouTube visitors.

You won’t need to do any extra work to build an audience community for your videos.

You will get it all set platforms with millions of viewers.

If your video is engaging and creative, it will have chances to grab attention of viewers and possibility to get popular.

Some people are lucky their videos’ popularity gets skyrocketed in just a few hours after publishing it.

So, what are you waiting for?

Get a camera and capture some amazing videos, and rock the YouTube. 😉
