If you have been hiding under a rock for all this time, you probably can be forgiven for missing out on that global social media phenomenon known as YouTube. Make no mistake about it, if you want to make a lot of money online, you should consider YouTube. That’s right, by simply choosing to become a video blogger, you can actually make money in your spare time.
And the best part to all of this is that you can even become a global celebrity. I know this sounds crazy, but it’s true. Look up Pewdiepie. He is amazing. He is a force of nature, and he makes millions of dollars every year.
You read that right. We’re talking about millions of dollars, as in seven figures. That’s how solid YouTube is as a personal branding platform. In fact, YouTube blows away all other social media platforms, whether we’re talking about Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google Plus, and everything else. The only other social media platform that gives YouTube a run for is money is Instagram.
That’s how solid your personal or corporate brand could be if you capture people’s imaginations using your video channel on YouTube. If you need proof of this, look up Kim Dao. Kim Dao is a beauty blogger who lives in Japan, and she has really captured the imagination of Malaysian video bloggers.
If you are based in Malaysia and you know people who work at the Prince Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and are thinking of a better life, consider video blogging. It doesn’t take much time, it doesn’t take much effort, and you only need to have the right low cost equipment to make quite a bit of spare cash.
Make no mistake about it, $2,000 per month may not go far in the United States, or Western Europe for the matter. However $2,000 a month can translate to a tremendous amount of cash if you live in Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and other parts of the world. And we’re not talking about barely getting by on ramen either. This amount of money is actually solidly middle class. This means you have your own car and you live in the decent part of town. Not too bad, right?
Do yourself a big favor and look into how Kim Dao captures the imagination of fans in Malaysia and elsewhere. It really is quite simple. All it takes is solid content, solid scripts, and a bubbly personality. You don’t necessarily have to copy and paste Kim Dao’s formula for video success, but as long as you’re willing to give it a try, don’t be surprised as to how successful you can get.
Make no mistake about it, there’s a gold rush going on right now, and a lot of it takes the form of YouTube videos. It really all boils down to zeroing in on a very interesting topic, letting your personality shine, and letting people follow you. That’s really all it takes because everything else falls into place as people develop a bona fide community around your body of content.
