Your YouTube videos can bring home the bacon through advertisements, endorsements, and such. However, have you ever wished that you could monetize your videos without having to advertise different products? Check out these ways that you can monetize your content without advertising.
1. Become a consultant.
If you have the credentials to be considered an expert in the kind of content that you produce, then consulting is a great way to make some extra money. As a consultant, you’ll provide expert advice professionally, whether it be by phone, email, or in person. You can even set up a company of your very own.
Raw Alignment’s Alyse Brautigam is a health coach on the side. Check out this video on how she became a successful consultant in less than a year.
2. Crowdfund with Patreon.
Patreon is the self-proclaimed largest crowdfunding platform for content creators. It allows you to collect funds from fans or patrons either on a recurring basis or per artwork. You can encourage fans to support your work by offering exclusive content or gifts for different levels of giving.
Check out this video that independent artist James Maslow made to promote his Patreon.
3. Hold live events.
One of the most fun ways to make money from your content is to take it on the road. Performing live shows will give you a chance to connect with your audience in a way that just can’t happen from behind a screen. You can book a small venue such as a coffee shop or a local comedy club, or you can gather a few content-creating friends and go on tour.
