    Hello IM, I need advice from you all

    Which business is better Youtube or Blogging or both combined


    In youtube firstly I am MCN, and also I can produce 1000 new videos per month with the help of my team but in that case I have to invest 500$ monthly

    and in Blogging, I have to invest 100$ monthly only, as I will hire someone to post fresh articles (spinned articles) on daily basis


    I am not having good money right now, but still I can arrange money for both of the work too


    Please advice me which business is better ?

    Your question is wrong, thus a real answer is not possible.
    Maybe you want to use one or another for something >>specific<<?

    Go with blogging first. If you make good money there, invest more. Otherwise give it a try with Youtube.

    You can do both without investing a dime!! and make them work together...
    instead of making 1000 videos a month and trowing them on YT, you can actually make less videos and focus more on the quality and ranking your videos in google and get your video visitors over to your blog...
    quality over quantity so to speak

    cheers

    which is more profitable "blogging or youtube" ? it depends on you. pick one you already had deep knowledge about / experience in making money.

    blogging is more of a long term earning method while youtube is more instant.

    highly usggest you to go with both, create a blog --> add content --> SEO --> rank is taking quite some time, u won't see much success instantly. (i assume you use SEO to promote your blog)

    DUring that period, you can always use youtube to have some short term inflow cash.

    Well, the answer really depends on which strategy, you think, you are better in. Also, look at the resources that you have on hand. If you have an HD camera for shooting and a good microphone to go with it, then aim for the more entertaining platform, which is creating YouTube videos.

    If you decide start blogging, you will still have to create videos at some point in the future because blogs and videos go well together and videos make your blog more interesting and informative.

    My advice: do both. By the way, you don't have to spend $500 per month because you don't have to create 1,000 videos per month. 1 video per day is enough.

    Blogging and Video are simply two main sources of traffic.
    But they are different medium too... and don't forget still images :)
    Anyway, having both on your strategies would only raise your traffic nah? :)
    Good luck !

    Blogging with spun content is no way to go. You either build a quality blog or no blog. It will only waste your time and efforts.

    It sounds like you're offering shit content people are going to bounce off of right away. In that case you will do much better with blogging and AdSense or linking to affiliate offers. One of the benefits of low quality content is people don't want to read it, so they either hit Back or click on a relevant ad : ) With YT people won't even stick around long enough to click on your ads, so I doubt you'll make much money.

    In both cases, you have to produce quality, For example , you said you can put $100 and start putting content on it , I doubt, you can put a lots of articles (fresh) with that monthly budget.

    Same thing applies to Youtube, you have to produce top notch work to get noticed.

    I would advice you to start off with blogging , if you have interest in writing.

    My most profitable YT video of all time was created in June 2014, cost $0, had 0 backlinks, ran 19 minutes, was embedded on 1 of my blogs, and ranked #1 the entire time (still does) for a keyword with definite competition. It's when I learned that you can technically earn on Youtube for $0 down as someone else mentioned. In fact, that's part of the reason YT is so great :)
