i met a guy who was boasting about his YouTube and Instagram channels where he has over 100,000 views.
when i asked him what his channel was about, he couldn’t tell me anything concrete.
then he told me he took down all his videos a while ago. which is weird. because you’d think the ad revenue alone would make it worthwhile to keep the videos up, even if he wasn’t posting any new content.
curious, i did some of my own research.
according to some sources, it seems you can make around $4 per 1,000 views. which sounds impressive. until you consider how much work it actually takes to plan, shoot, and edit a video that gets 1,000 views.
and as impressive as 100,000 video views sound, it’s a useless measure of anyone’s income on YouTube.
before you can get paid a single dollar in ad revenue, the YouTube partner program requires at least 1,000 subscribers and over 4,000 hours of public view-time for your videos.
enticing 1,000 people to subscribe to your channel is no easy feat. you’ll need far more than 100,000 viewers to pull that off.
and if you can’t get 100,000 viewers to spend nearly 2 mins watching your videos, none of your views is worth scrap.
which would explain why this guy, despite having such an impressive view count didn’t keep his PoopTewb channel going. he wasn’t making ANY money.
i don’t know about you, but it all seems like a LOT of work to make $4…or even $400.
information marketing is a much more lucrative alternative. with 1,000 subscribers, i can easily launch a $97 product, sell it to just 30 of my subscribers, and make ~$3,000.
the product creation AND the promotion itself would take me just 7 days.
i’ve done this. in fact, for over a year, i did exactly this and built up to 400 monthly customers, each paying me $97 dollars. (ie, ~$40,000 per month in revenue).
i still use a variation of this approach today, right at this moment. so it continues to work years later!
