Can A Normal Person Earn Good Money On Being A YouTuber?

Recommended Posts

Yes, I think anyone can be a YouTuber but you really need to have guts to be a YouTuber. I've seen lots of Vloggers in YT that started having small subscribers and got bigger after their videos go viral. You just really needed to find good content so people would start subscribing and watching your channel. You can make a reaction video, cooking show, tutorials, a vlog and many more. But it's kind of hard now to earn from YT because they change their policies due to an unfortunate event with Logan issue though it's still worth to try there's nothing to lose anyway because it's free to join.

Anyone can become a YouTuber, if they are persistent and work hard towards becoming one. However, I would like to warn anyone looking to becoming a YouTuber that it is quite a difficult job right now. The thing is that it has now become quite mainstream which means that a lot of people are trying to become YouTubers and that means that it is quite hard to get properly noticed and gain a large subscriber base for your channel. And the other problem is that the amount you earn from adverts on your videos are not as great as they used to be which is a huge problem for everyone even some of the bigger YouTubers.

It's probably harder to do so now that Google has made it harder to qualify for revenue sharing of ads. But if you are depending on YouTube ads for all your revenue, you are missing out on a lot of other revenue opportunities. To be most effective, your YouTube videos should help generate money in other ways, even if you don't qualify for the revenue share yet.

Like what they said, anyone can be a YouTuber. But for me never see it as a way to earn, for earning thru Youtube ain't that easy, it requires so much time and effort and don't forget patience as well. We all know that earning subscribers takes time, most vlogs out there are claiming it too that they spent so much time and effort in being an YouTuber before having to touch their first paychecks. So if you really want to be a YouTuber just do things that you really enjoy and upload it, you'll never know when you'll hit the thousand views Adsense requires, so just enjoy it and you'll never feel time passing by, next thing you know you're getting paid just by doing something you love.

Anyone can be a YouTuber tho but not all of them can be the typical 'YouTuber' we know. Similar to Hollywood stars and the Entertainment industry, there will always be famous and nugus and typically famous ones earn more money than the nugu ones. As for me, YouTube is good if you have all the things that can support your vlogging job like a good camera (e.g. GoPro, DSLR, etc.), a good microphone, and a budget (if you are a travel blogger and if you don't have the things I mentioned). I actually know a lot of YouTubers who earned a lot after gaining more subscribers. 

I have also observed that most successful YouTubers are rich people and I guess it's because they have all the resources to fund their vlogs. However, if you really think that you can make good content and you have the confidence to do so, then it's better to start now and advertise yourself so that you can earn more subscribers and earn lots and lots of money.

I completely agree being a YouTuber is actually a full time business and needs a lot of capital and investment in order to monetize ones channel.  You really have to spend first before you could earn a lot.  Most successful YouTubers has been maintaining their channels for a decade and most of them didn't earn during the first 3-5 years.

I agree. However, I think the case has been changed right now. There are a few successful newcomers who have run their channel for just months or a year I guess and started to earn a lot of money after that. However, I do agree that most youtubers have to spend first before they earn something. I guess successful newcomers just got lucky and had the opportunity to earn after a short period of time. 

I'm actually hoping to be as lucky like those successful newcomers because I am already starting to create my own youtube channel and I'll be uploading videos soon. Hopefully I can earn money from YouTube in just a short period of time.

This is the million dollar question. Do people actually make a living wage on Youtube or just some pocket money to spend on a weekend out? I think you need more than 1,000 or is it 10,000 clicks to earn some money.How then do you go about getting those clicks?Does you tube act like a search engine ?do you need to use the right keywords to get your videos seen? They are actually not that many tutorials out there about how to earn money on Youtube. This is is mostly unexplored area in my opinion. As a newbie I wouldn't advise you start here for instant income.

I really think it can be done but not purely by YouTube alone. I have a friend that uses YouTube as an advertiser and as a seller portal. She's doing great actually, but this is not a thing that can be done quickly. She started using YouTube as a tool about two years ago and it just gradually increased its popularity. Now her business is stable, but she told me its not easy at all. Perseverance and consistency is the key according to her.

There's a lot of fuzz about YouTubers earning a lot of money by just making interesting videos, can a normal person do this?

Seriously, I don't really know much about how to earn money online as a YouTuber but I'm well aware that some people make use of the social media in marketing

A forum owner I conversed with has a Youtube Channel of just 6k subscribers with 500 average views per video, 3 videos a week and he's earning close to $5-7 a day. It's not bad if it's just a way to help pay the bills. That was before the 10k subs and 40000 watch time requirement for new creators FYI. I don't think a person can live decently on Youtube alone unless they have like 300k subs. I mean even the top Youtubers have to sell merch or get help through donations to survive.

Yes, why not? Remember, all the popular Youtube today were ordinary people when they first started off on Youtube. What really matters is the content. Your content should be different and should draw the attention of the people. The more the views, the more popular your channel would be and then you can monetize your videos and start making money.

Vloggers on Youtube are many now. Vlogging is trending more than blogging. There is good money in blogging. You must know what you can do to earn from it.

Can a normal person earn good money on being a youtube? Maybe there are a lot of self-made YouTubers out dare who made a good amount of money but being a youtube take a lot of hard work and dedication being an overnight success on youtube is rare or near to impossible. Once your channel is monetized you earn money easily by doing advertisements.

A normal person can be a youtuber, but can anyone be a successful youtuber? No, being a vlogger or having a channel requires a lot of time and effort. It should be your main focus and drive, to be successful you need to know the trends and do a lot of research. Also, you need to have the personality for it. Viewers need to be informed and entertained at the same time. There have been many youtubers who have shared tips on how to make it and I suggest anyone who wants to become one to watch and learn from their videos.

Anyone can be a YouTuber but not everyone will be successful. It takes a lot of work and passion when dealing with this kind of activity. Taking full attention and creating creative strategies is one important factor to consider. This will give distinct identity among others. Patience and determination is a great advantage to stay on track.
