So, without wasting much of your time, here are 5 better ways you can make money on YouTube for extra income without relying on Adsense alone.

  1. Sponsored Posts

This is one better alternative to Adsense. This is how most celebrities make their millions on YouTube.

Now, don’t get me wrong that you have to become a celebrity to make money through sponsorships on YouTube. I only cited an example.

The secret behind making money on YouTube with sponsorships is that many top brands have noticed increase in sales and more people visiting their website by promoting their brand using YouTube sponsorship.

So, they are now looking for YouTubers with interest in sponsorship so they can use their channel to promote their brand.

Earning from sponsorships varies according to the products or service and on the audience and how far it can reach. You can get offers for a series of videos or a single video in exchange for a significant amount of money or free use of the product or service.

Getting sponsors may sound intimating to you but it is actually easy.

If you have a specific brand in mind, go to their website and check if they have an established sponsorship program. If they do, follow their guidelines and rules and apply for sponsorship. If they don’t, then you will need to write them a proposal.

Writing a sponsorship proposal just consist of an introduction which should tell the company about your YouTube channel, what you vlog about, and why you think they should be interested in running a sponsorship video with your channel.

In your proposal, you will also state what you will offer them in exchange for their sponsorship. If in the case you may not have any brand in mind, you just have to visit a marketplace site called FameBit and sign up.

It is a site connecting YouTube creators with brands that want to partner with them. You won’t need to worry yourself because brands on this site are looking for YouTubers and that was why they also registered.

  1. Affiliate Marketing

Just the same way bloggers make money from affiliate marketing, YouTubers also make money on YouTube with affiliate marketing. This method alone can make you a large amount of money in a short while if you have engaging audience that have come to trust you.

All you need to do is pick a product or service related to your niche, create a video or series of videos around and put the link in the description box.

You get paid commission for every sale gotten from your link. The more people click your link and purchase the product or service, the more commission you get. It is so easy!

  1. Become a YouTube Partner

This is another lucrative way you can make money on YouTube without Adsense. It is slightly similar to making money from Adsense but better than Adsense.

As a YouTube partner, YouTube will be displaying adverts on your videos and you earn revenue generated from the ads on your videos.

As far as you have a growing YouTube channel with up to 10,000 public views, you can apply as a YouTube partner. Once accepted, you will have the opportunity to earn money from their revenue sharing program.

Presently, it is 45/55 split. This means YouTube takes 45% of the revenue made from every ads sale from your video while you take 55%.

  1. Sell Your Product or Service

If you have your own product or service, you can use your channel to direct audience to your site and make sale too. Seriously, you can’t compare the amount of money you will get from selling your own product or service to commission you get paid to promote other people’s products or services.

So many YouTubers use their channel to promote their products and services to increase their income alongside other means of making money on YouTube.

For example, let’s say you are into teaching people how to make money online through your YouTube channel and have successfully built a great following, you can create an eBook and sell to your subscribers.

A beauty expert can also sell some valuable interesting videos containing some interesting beauty tips, visual tutorials of popular make-up looks etc.

When selling your product or service on YouTube, make sure you drop your full URL in your description. This will create a link to your site where they can buy your product or service and maybe sign up to your email newsletter.

  1. Renting Out Videos

Do you know you can also make money on YouTube by renting out your videos? Many people don’t know this exist.

To do this, you need to get good traffic to the video. When the video rank top on YouTube for a particular search or keyword, brands will contact you for link rentals.

Link rental is an arrangement where you give out your video on rent to be used by others for a fee. You still retain full rights to the content. This is a wonderful way to make money for anyone that has a video ranking top on a particular keyword or search.

YouTube provides a lot of income opportunities to people. But one important thing to remember is that the quality of your video matters a lot for popularity.
