I have read from a lot of people that they are having a hard time making any money with youtube without using tools that they cannot afford to buy. So I figured I would help out by posting this short method that works if you can apply to the amazon affiliate program. No investment needed for this. Save the money you make from this method and invest in the most popular youtube tools in the forum to make more money. On to it.... What you will need: -Video Camera -Youtube account - Know how to upload -An Amazon Associates Account -Something you like to do and can teach other people how to do it. Youtube is awesome for "How to" vids and this is what you will be creating. Some of you are probably saying, "Wtf? I don't know how to do anything!" Ha! You would be surprsed what people search for on youtube for "how to". It can be something as elaborate as "how to build a hot rod" to something as simple as "How to make a bologna sandwich". Use you imagination and once you have figured out what it is you want to teach people how to do, create a video tutorial on "How to" do it. Now that you have figured out what it is you can do , head over to Amazon and login to your associates program. Lets use the example "How to make a bologna sandwich". in the search box in your members area, type in "bologna sandwich". There you will see books related to the keywords. Now this is not a good example, but you can see where I am going with this right? The kicker is to show people how to do whatever it is you do and at the same time tell them some items that can make it easier to do whatever it is that you are doing. Then go over to amazon, find the items, then get the URLS to the search results pages for those items, go to your favorite URL shortening service and shorten all the URLS, then post them in the description of your video. You may even be able to get away with posting your affiliate link directly without using a short url. Say something in the description like, "Here are the items I mentioned in the Video: URL 1, URL 2 and so on. Don't forget to us annotations in the video to direct people to you description. I know that making videos is hard for some folks, but make it fun and be interactive with the audience and make them BELIEVE that they NEED the item that you are talking about. Use annotations to direct folks to the description so they will follow your links. Also, look up all relevant keywords to your subject using google keyword tool. Put as many long tail keywords you can in the tag line of your video. Be creative with your title too to get more exposure. "How to make a bologna sandwich" might be an exact match, but you will be competing with an ass of others who used the same title. Change it to something like "How to make the most kick ass Bologna Sandwich" or "How to make an American Bologna Sandwich" or, How Rednecks Make Bologna Sandwiches in Georgia". You get the idea. (Like I said before, this is a poor example, but it's funny to me lol) You will get organic traffic from youtube, but be sure to social bookmark your vid(s). Rinse, Repeat. If you run out of ideas then learn something new that you can find a lot of items for on amazon. Or you can rehash someone else's vids although I recommend unique, new videos. Ok, I went on long enough. Sorry I didn't spoon feed this method, but I think it's simple enough for anyone to follow.
