How can you make money from YouTube videos?Well first you need something to promote. If you don’t have any product to sell that is not a problem, head on down to either ClickBank or Commission Junction and get your self an account, now you have thousands of products to choose from.How you can create your videos for free without having to purchase any expensive software!First you need to grab yourself a free copy of Cam Studio, this is open source software you get the full version for free and unrestricted. Do a search on Google to get the URLThis software will allow you to record your screen and out put it into a video format compatible with the video sites.Next your going to need some slide show presentation software, if you have MS Office and Power Point already installed then great! You can use this.If do not have Power Point don’t worry you wont have to buy Microsoft’s over priced software there is a free solution (this is what I personally use not because I am tight – I just like it) it’s called Open Office.Again this is Open Source and is made out the kindness of their hearts! Good software too!Download and install your free copy from their website search for “Open Office” on GoogleNow you can probably guess what we are going to do with it, but heck ill tell you anyway just in case:) basically your going to make a slide show promoting the product of choice! Record your screen while you play it, viola you have a short video!Now I got the gear what kind of video should I make?Information Products
You can condense all the benefits of an information product your promoting on ClickBank into a slide show and record it.You can find out all the information from the sales page of the products your promoting it should give you all the information you need to make this if not then it has a poor sales page so move on.Or better still do a product comparison compare the features, benefits and price of 2 products and give them the information and let them decide which is best for them and give them both affiliate links!Software Demonstrations
If your promoting a software product you can make a video demonstrating the features, just record yourself using it.If your able to get audio even better you can talk over the video as your demonstrating it if not it can still work ok just add subtitles explaining what you are doing it will work just as well:)You can find loads of affiliate programs for software on ClickBank and around the web that you can promote I would avoid promoting something you haven’t tried yourself as you don’t want to tell people to buy something that doesn’t work or is substandard!How To Videos
These types of videos get a lot of attention on YouTube and other video sites, people always want tutorials on how to do something.Know how to do something on the computer that you think others would like to know? Doesn’t matter how simple just make a quick video, if there is some software that automates the task after showing them how to do it manually you can promote this software and get some good conversions!Sign up to the affiliate program of a hosting company, make a video about how easy the sign up process is and promote it!Endless ways on monetizing these kind of videos!Events In The News
Keep ahead of events in the world and be first to post! This can get you a million hits if done correctly and you hit a home run.After the news hits the world media millions of people go online in search of more information and YouTube will rank in the top listings of the search engines.You can monetize these videos with all kinds of things free iPod email submits and other email submits can work well with mass non targeted traffic, if you can line up something relevant to sell then you can make a killing from this.Silly Pets
Have a video camera at home and demented pet that just does the most stupid things? Film it! Trust me it can make you rich.You will be surprised about how much attention these kind videos get, and they do go viral easily.But the best thing about it is that the Pet industry is a very lucrative niche to be in and you already have sub niche here.If you filmed your cat then promote a cat related info product if a dog then do a dog related info product you will find loads of these on ClickBank to promote.One other nice thing about doing this is that the larger percentage of your audience will be female that are statistically shown to spend the most money online so your really tapping into a gold mine with this one.And much more! Use your imagination! be creative!
