Due to the current global recession, many people today are looking for ways to supplement their monthly income in order to meet their daily needs. Many people are being laid off from their job. They have to look for other methods of earning other than regular employees.
With this in mind, many have resorted to venturing into online businesses. However, there is no easy way, as many online businesses have been open since the dawn of the Internet in the late 1990s. And it is quite difficult to compete with established sites like Google, Amazon, eBay, and ClickBank. People have to find other alternatives on how to make money without having to compete with the big websites.
So how can we make money online without having to sell anything or display Google AdSense?
How about making money with what you do every day? Something like your hobby?
When looking at current trends, many people today are hooked on two types of sites: social media sites and video sites.
In this article we will discuss how we can make money from video sites, specifically YouTube.
According to Mashable.com, in 2010, YouTube surpassed 2 billion views per day and continues to grow even more. Imagine a person watching at least 5 one-minute videos per day, with nearly 6 billion internet users, half of whom use YouTube every day. Imagine if you could turn at least a thousand of those viewers into money making machines? That would be a lot of money, huh?
So how do we turn those observers into money-making machines? Actually, there are two ways: first, you create your own video, then you go viral, and then you post ads on your videos or links to your affiliate sites. Second, it is simply making money by watching YouTube videos.
But let’s face it, not everyone can create videos to post on YouTube. Maybe even the one reading this doesn’t even know how to make a simple 30 second video clip. Despite that, everyone is watching YouTube. That is simple.
You may be wondering how someone can make money by watching YouTube. Well, if there is internet marketing, there is also video marketing. Many people will pay cash for those who can generate traffic to their videos. And that’s where the money comes in.
There are many websites that allow you to earn money by watching YouTube videos, even infomercials. Although the pay is not that high, but at least even a five-year-old can do it.
