Arguably one of the easiest online revenue generating techniques continues to be YouTube Marketing, a process by which anyone can legally and ethically use stock video, shot with almost any mobile phone to make money on YouTube!
This post will show you how I monetize a 6 minute video of a drone flying through the clouds, more than once…
Question: What’s special about the video above?
Answer: The way I’m marketing it.
While the video on its own has little entertainment value, it’s value increases dramatically when the video is distributed free of charge on YouTube where the video is monetized. For example, the first version of the video above with very poor audio from the wind hitting the drone’s microphone, received over 340,000 views, which can translate into quite a lot of smackeroos… :)
Next, by embedding the YouTube video in this post and adding a wide selection of relevant tags, I’m driving traffic to this very web page. Because I have ads showing throughout my blog, I’m generating revenue on auto-pilot from visitors who are looking for a video such as this one.
Flying Through Clouds Video
Using keywords that relate to the clip, the H2 tag line above will be indexed by major search engines within minutes after I publish this post. In the next couple weeks the post will start receiving visitors which in turn will serve over 400 pings each visit.
Then I’ll add the post’s link, powered by keyword enriched anchor text to a bunch of highly ranked websites as part of an OPR campaign.
Finally I’ll sit back and enjoy the harvest… #TGBATG :)
