Hey everyone, remember me? The Easily Doable Balloon Business guy. I hope you're all doing well. It's been a while since my last visit here. I am no longer in the balloon business but I am doing very well and I am here to pay it forward. I was skimming through some recent posts here and found some great ideas being shared. I would also like to make a contribution and it’s along the lines of the post by Brent Whinfield “A Lucrative No Competition Niche”. Except, what I am about to share has a healthy competition but it can still be lucrative for the right person. One caution though. If you’re only interested in opportunities that bring instant monetary gratification, this is definitely not for you.
Ok, here goes…
I’m sure you’ve all heard of people making lots of money on YouTube. YouTube is great for all kinds of ‘talents’ whether you’re great at being spontaneous or just good at making a recording of yourself eating candy ( This video has over 8 million views and has probably earned this young lady $6000-$8000: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xgk34euy4zo
) . So why doesn’t everybody just quit their jobs and become YouTubers? There are many reasons but the top three things (based on an informal survey) that stop many people from becoming a YouTuber is:
1. The requirement to constantly create new content
2. Being comfortable recording a video of themselves
3. Being confident in speaking/presenting themselves in a manner that the audience finds captivating
Can one become a YouTuber without creating their own content? YES!
Have you ever searched for a song on YouTube and found search results that show “Lyrics” for that song (like this one from a friend of mine who just started a week ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAUV...JRq tbvNLojAa
). The folks who do this download the song first, then add lyrics and upload the song back on their own YouTube channel. They don’t make any money on the songs because all songs are copyright protected. So why do it? Because it’s the quickest way to build subscribers with no marketing at all. Once you have a million + subscribers, which is not difficult to achieve, you WILL be contacted by Artists, Marketers, Promoters, to promote their videos. That is when you get paid big. Also, as you’re building your subscribers, you can earn money by adding relevant affiliate links in the Video description. Want to go Niche? Focus on a specific Music Genre or just happy songs or just sad songs or just workout songs, you get my point.
