How To Earn Money From YouTube With Affiliate Marketing


One of the biggest mistakes YouTubers make,
is not generating a passive income from their YouTube videos. Today, you’ll learn how to earn money from
YouTube with affiliate marketing, so you can get support while growing your channel. My name is Herman Drost from drostdesigns.com. If you want to grow your audience on YouTube,
and generate traffic, leads, and sales on autopilot, hit that subscribe button and click
the bell notification icon so you’ll be notified whenever I upload a new video. Here are seven reasons to promote an affiliate
product using YouTube videos. Number one, YouTube is the second largest
search engine on the net after Google. This means if you create a video that promotes
an affiliate product, and it gets ranked in the search engines, it could generate revenue,
year after year. More than 500 million hours are watched every
day on YouTube, so there’s a good chance that people will find your videos. Number two, viewers retain 95% of your message
if they watch a video, compared to 10% if they read it using text. It means your video content has a greater
impact than people reading text. Number three, make sales on autopilot. If your videos rank on the first page of YouTube
and/or Google, then you’ll earn a commission, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for years
to come. I have a few videos that I created several
years ago on my channel that still earn affiliate commissions on autopilot. Number four, you don’t have to create a product. The beauty of promoting an affiliate product
is that you don’t have to create the product, the sales page, or even the marketing materials. All you have to do is to promote the product
using the affiliate link and you earn a commission. Number five, no need to worry about customer
service. If there’s a problem with a product, you don’t
have to worry because you didn’t create it. Number six, you don’t have to rely on AdSense
income. YouTube now requires 1,000 subscribers and
4,000 hours of watch time to join the YouTube Partner Program and get your channel monetized. If you promote an affiliate product, you don’t
have to worry about joining the YouTube Partner Program, and you make more money than you
do with AdSense. As your revenue increases from promoting affiliate
products on YouTube, you may be able to afford a new camera or attend a conference in your
niche. Number seven, there’s an affiliate program
for almost every product on the net. An easy way to find an affiliate program for
a specific product is to just enter product+affiliate program in the Google search box. Here are the 10 steps to earn money from YouTube
with affiliate marketing. Number one, choose an affiliate product to
promote. Some of the big affiliate companies include
Amazon, ClickBank, JVZoo. Another great place to find affiliate offers
is Offervault. You just enter a search term in the search
box to find and compare offers, then click search. Number two, create a short video. This could be a review video, giving your
opinion on how the product works, it could be a how-to tutorial, or you can just demonstrate
how the software or product works. Number three, give a strong call to action. After you’ve reviewed or demonstrated the
software or product, make sure you give a strong call to action by offering a free download
in an end screen, or telling people to click the link in description below the video. Number four, optimize your video. After you’ve edited it and uploaded your video
to YouTube, make sure you optimize the title, description, and tags. Your title should include the name of the
product. For instance, if I did a review of TubeBuddy,
I’d call it TubeBuddy Review or Review of TubeBuddy. Number five, place your affiliate link in
the first three lines of your video description. When people watch your video, they’ll only
be able to see the first three lines in your video description, so make sure you put the
full URL of your affiliate link in the first three lines. Number six, include a summary of your video
content. The first three lines in your video description
should also include a summary of your video content. It should motivate people not only to watch
your video, but to click on your affiliate link to check out the product. Number seven, add a disclaimer. Add a disclaimer at the bottom of your video
description. It could be something like, “Some of the links
above may contain affiliate links from which I earn a small commission if you purchase
from them.” Number eight, check the content declaration
box. Click on advanced settings under your video,
and check the box that says content declaration. “This video contains paid promotions such
as paid product placement, sponsorships, or endorsement.” If I click on this icon, it says, “Creators
may choose to include paid promotion in their content. All paid promotion will need to conform to
our ad policies and all applicable laws.” Make sure you’re familiar with YouTube’s ad
policies that refers to paid product placements and endorsements. I’ll place a link to this document in the
description below this video. Number nine, include meta tags, a transcription,
and a thumbnail. Your meta tags should include the product
name and any other keywords associated with your product. Uploading a transcript of your video will
also help your rankings in the Google search engine. It’ll also help people who can’t listen to
your video to be able to read the captions under your video. Make sure the design of your thumbnail reflects
the content in your video so it wins the click. If your thumbnail doesn’t stand out in the
search engines, you’re not going to get much traffic to your video. Number 10, promote your video. Make sure you promote your video on social
media sites, your email list, and also embed it on your own website. This will help jump-start the number of views
you get to your video within the first 24 to 48 hours. Here’s a bonus tip. Repeat these 10 steps for other affiliate
products that you wish to promote. And now, I’d like to give you free access
