This guide on how to generate a steady monthly income by leveraging other people's YouTube channels. I'll walk you through a simple yet powerful method that requires minimal upfront investment (around $50 to get started).

With some effort, you can realistically earn $3000 or more per month, even if you're a complete beginner. The key is finding the right YouTube channels to partner with and offering services their audiences will love. I'll show you exactly how to do this step-by-step.

The Basic Method​


The core concept is to find small to mid-sized YouTube channels (10K-50K subscribers) and offer the channel owners a revenue-sharing deal. You provide a service or digital product at no cost to them. They promote it to their audience and you split the sales 50/50 (you can also pay them a one-time fee).

It's a win-win. The channel owner gets free content to share with their subscribers and passive income. You get instant access to a targeted customer base without spending anything on ads. And their audience gets valuable products/services.

The types of offerings that work best are digital products or services related to the channel's niche. Things like ebooks, printables, templates, courses, coaching, freelance services, etc. With a little research, you can find the perfect fit.

Finding the Right YouTube Channels​


The first step is to make a list of potential YouTube channels to reach out to. Here are the criteria to look for:

  • Between 10,000 - 50,000 subscribers
  • Focused on a specific niche/topic
  • Posting new videos regularly (at least 2-3 per week)
  • Engaged audience (check comments, likes, etc.)
  • Open to collaborations and sponsorships

Aim to create a list of at least 50-100 channels. The more you have, the higher your chances of finding great partners to work with.

Some example niches and product ideas:

Blogging channels: SEO services, web designing, web development, content writing, courses
Cooking channels: meal plans, recipe ebooks, kitchen tools/gadgets
Fitness channels: workout plans, nutrition guides, fitness gear
Marketing Channels: Copywriting, landing page building, social media management service
Mom/parenting channels: printable activities, parenting ebooks, kids' products
Gaming channels: game guides, graphic design templates, gaming accessories
Beauty/fashion channels: style guides, beauty product, clothing/accessories

Get creative and brainstorm offerings for each channel based on their specific content and audience interests. The more relevant and useful, the better.

Creating Your Offerings​

There are two main approaches to creating offerings:

1. Make-to-Stock:

This is the traditional approach where you create the product first, then list it for sale.

Once you have some service/product ideas, it's time to get them made. The easiest way is to outsource the work on freelance platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, or Freelancer.com and Etsy.

Post a job listing detailing exactly what you need. For example, if you want a 30-page ebook written on vegan recipes, specify the topic, length, content to include, deadline, and your budget. Hire a few different freelancers to create 2-3 offerings for each channel.

Expect to spend around $30-$50 per offering, depending on the scope of work. Start with lower-cost gigs in the beginning. As you start making sales, reinvest some of the profits into creating higher-quality, premium offerings.

2. Make-to-Order:

This approach focuses on getting the order first, then outsourcing the product/service. This is my favorite option.

Pitching the Channel Owners​


With your list of channels and offerings ready, you can start reaching out and pitching your proposal. Find the email address in the "About" section of their YouTube channel.

Craft a friendly, personalized email that covers the following key points:

  • Introduce yourself and your background/qualifications
  • Mention 2-3 specific things you like about their channel
  • Explain your proposal: you've created XYZ product/service that would be perfect for their audience and you'd like to offer it to their subscribers at no cost to the channel owner
  • Clarify that this is a revenue-sharing opportunity, where you'll handle everything (processing orders/payments, customer service, etc) and split the profits 50/50
  • Attach samples of your offerings
  • Close with a call-to-action to schedule a phone call or Zoom meeting to discuss further

Send this pitch to every channel on your list. Aim to email at least 20-50 per day. Don't get discouraged if you don't hear back right away. These things take time.

Tracking Results and Scaling Up​


For each channel owner that's interested, set up a unique tracking link for their promotions. This way you'll know exactly how many sales came from each channel. Popular link shorteners like Bitly, LinkTracker, ClickMeter etc. work well for this.

Pay your channel partner the one time fee agreed…

Or pay them their 50% cut at the end of each month. Provide a sales report showing the number of sales, total revenue, and their earnings. Maintain open communication and be prompt with their payments to keep the relationship positive.

As you start seeing consistent results, scale up by reinvesting your profits into creating more/better offerings. Expand to new niches. Build your email list so you can market to customers directly.

With persistence and good products, you can grow your monthly earnings to $3000, $5000, and beyond. Just keep providing great value, treating your partners well, and putting in the work. The income will follow.

Monetizing Other Social Media Platforms​


The core concepts of this monetization method can be applied by influencers and content creators across various social media platforms, not just YouTube. You can adapt these same strategies to Instagram influencers, TikTok influencers, and Facebook group owners.

Making money online doesn't have to be complicated. By leveraging other people's audiences, you can shortcut the process and start earning faster. YouTube is a fantastic platform for this because of the massive variety of niche channels.

Find the right partners, create offerings their audiences will love, and pitch your revenue-sharing proposal. Stick with it and you can build a solid monthly income stream.

I hope this guide has given you a practical framework you can implement to start generating $3000 or more per month. Now it's up to you to take action. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I'm here to help.
 
It's not a bad business. There are several interviews with a Russian guy who's into this, a certain David Turu. Both his way of expressing himself and the stories he tells about his background seem like lies, but the business itself seems viable. By the way, he also claims to charge a 50/50 split.

Basically, it involves contacting influencers who are just starting out and have no idea about the value of their traffic or how to monetize it properly. I've thought many times about offering this kind of service.

For example, you reach out to several fitness niche influencers, then go to AdCombo, pick an offer from that niche, and give them the affiliate link. After that, you split the commissions 50/50.

Yes, right you are.
It can work with Instagram too. But you need a good product.
Good idea.
 
I think all type of arbitrage is good in YouTube, you just need to know the right information and way to sell your products not someone who is already doing this. Also keyword researching is crucial in this business. Sounds interesting I can give it a try.
 
I contacted nearly 100 Youtubers niche specific to a service I provide with 0 replies.
And the offer was quite attractive.

A while ago, I tried to contact several casino streamers to propose something equally attractive, and I also got 0 responses. In the end, I think appearance matters more than the profitability of the offer itself.
 
All I know about influencers is they say "get in line". What can be monetized are influencers of 3rd world countries.
 
This seems really interesting. I have an extensive background in sales and I'm searching for a way to make passive income. Once I get things off the ground for myself, I'll have to take a deeper dive into this.
 
The idea is very inspiring, thanks for sharing it. However: savvier influencers are probably already promoting their own stuff or doing affiliate marketing; those not so experienced, or perhaps newbies, are hard to contact.
So we should aim to connect with channels that have between 10,000 and 50,000 followers, run by someone who is a bit new to the game (= recent channels?), does not have his own product/service to sell (otherwise he will be afraid of cannibalizing it with our new proposals) and at the same time eager to learn some monetization strategies (= become autonomous in the future).
Better if they are overwhelmed with other things and won't have much time to dive into monetization tactics, which means they will probably keep the partnership longer ;-)
 
This looks cool. I can feel the hard part as well.

got a confusion/question:

what should I offer to YouTubers to promote? affiliate products and etc? But that kinda product the can use to do their own, why third parties, like us?

can you pin-point something on that? or some unique approach to getting products to promote?
 
I don't have experience with the method OP is describing (promotion to YouTubers) so I cannot speak exactly for the specific target customer group.
OP made a great post, all the info someone needs are on the first post. Planning, products, marketing approach. Everything is offered in the plate.
I can see some people are discouraged or asking for products that worked for OP. I think this is not the point.
If you don't mind I ll share my opinion as a sale man's and might help.
I have experience with what is called indirect sales. Sale is always a sale, but we can separate it in direct, selling to a customer covering his/her needs, and indirect sales, selling to a customer that will sale to his/her customers.

The target is the same but the approach is different. Each youtuber, each profesional, had spent time, money, brain to build his/her channel-bussiness sacrifying other valuable things from his/her life. Why share with someone stranger all these? Why promote your product while he/she can promote something of his choice with 100% profit and with less risk to lose audience-customers?
So as a salesman you have to think different. Offending sales techniques and pressure might be useless. Here you have to act as a partner, as someone offering value to youtuber's audience. How can you help influencer be better? How you can help grow his audience? But are these two questions the needs of your target youtuber? You can talk with someone days trying to promote a spoon and althought he agree that spoon is the most incredible piece he ever see he will never buy. Why? Because he needs a knife to cut his steak and not a spoon to eat his soup!
So first rule is you have to know what your customer needs are in order to sell! And OP made it clear, you have to have a portofolio cause what someone needs is useless for someone else.
Second rule is you have to make him understand a need he has and hasn't realized yet. You can spot 2-3 points that can be better on youtuber's channel. Talk about these points, be specific but general same time. I mean spot the problem, mention it, show how an improvement can be beneficial but don't give the solution. Solution is the product you want to sell. And here OP is giving a valuable way of approaching your customers.
Third rule is you don't have the upper hand! His house, his rules. Try to be a chameleon and adapt to his style, don't expect him to adapt to you.
Fourth rule you must know your product and it's potentials better than your hand. And remember you are not promoting the super product, you promoting the super value for his audience and him. It is not about you, it is about him.
OP mentioned ebook as an example. So build an ebook at a specific niche related to your target youtuber. Offer your book to him for his audience. How? There you have to make an agreement. Or you can have your affiliate links in it and offer it free. Or you can sell it to him for his audience or you can make an ebook for him from scratch and get paid. This is something you have to negotiate for.
I have seen many post on BHW using the same technique. Some guys are selling services that make Google my bussiness better, some people are offering services on how to get a better score on Google's reviews etc. It is the same approach, rather easier to spot the needs tho from a youtuber. It is not easy! It is the hardest type of sale, but the most profitable as you can build long bussiness relationship.
I used to be pharma rep. I was selling an anti-hypertansion medication rather expensive, having the same results with others. I had to make my product different among 7 categories with at least 14 drugs each category. I had to be the best choice among 98 choices, some cheaper and more effective at a 'close' market - meaning specific number of customers and a stable number of patients. Youtube is chaotic, 100 or 200 or even 1000 contacts is useless if you are serious and have a target.
Now if you want to sale that way, this sales approach is called the challenger sale. Google it, find it and master it
