YouTube monetization may be a nice feature — but it’s also a big smokescreen (or at least distracting most everyone from what posting a video online is all about, and where the real money can be made with it)!
People are barred from seeing the real deal as a result. They are fooled into believing that those measly pennies make much sense earning. So everyone and their grandmother are out to lecture us about Casey Neistat and the likes and what they supposedly “make on YouTube”. Then these smart [ones] come up with all these educated-looking calculations about what a View is “worth” and oh-so expertly do the simple math multiplying the stuff, whereas the lion’s share of income is made NOT from measly AdSense-style or ‘monetization’ payments but Affiliate links — a totally different thing! Many of the true experts in the field confirm that the ratio is roughly 9:1 in favour or the latter.
The real YouTube benefit for “real YouTubers” or full-time video shooters on there is the site’s characteristics of also being used for “search” (albeit a bit ridiculous when actual search-quality really matters — not the way to go) and by posing as a “social platform” at the same time. YouTubes objective here is attracting and retaining people spending their time on there which, in turn, plays into the hands of savvy video producers and online marketers. All this combined together into one big package deal — also including those 11% or so in monetization income if you insist — is what makes YouTube successful, and also useful from a business point of view.

If you want to go it alone and already have a really neatly working YouTube channel plus everything else in place and are sure you’re not overlooking any of the crucial ingredients, the next thing you may want to set up would be a number of affiliate opportunities. These can either be found on affiliate portal sites or, sometimes the better choice, individual websites onboarding affiliates. (It’s usually at the bottom of the page or in ‘about’ sections, not too easy to find but not too hard either.) It’s always an option to go it alone if you already are sufficiently well-versed in this area, but remember that we’re here to show you how to get farther, faster, so any consultation cost may be money well spent.
