How to Sell on YouTube
A great option for making money with your YouTube videos that you can do at any time is selling your own products. Since they are your products you don’t have to worry about any regulations or restrictions when it comes to selling them on your YouTube channel. In addition, you can also place links to sell your products within your social media pages and in any guest posts you may write for bloggers.
When selling your products on YouTube it is important to note that people usually aren’t watching your videos with the intention of making a purchase. Of course, if you are reviewing products then they may be thinking about purchasing something, and in that case, you can direct them to making that purchase. However, generally, they are not thinking about purchasing your product.
Therefore, when promoting your products, do so lightly. Simply place a link or two in the description, add a notification card, and you can mention it in the video.
You can sell any kind of product exactly as you would in real life. Remember, that if you start promoting your products within your YouTube videos then you better never stop selling those products. If you do, then you’ll have to take down the video and sabotage your view count. In addition, be prepared to field questions about the products and make sure you are set up for distribution. Whether your products are physical or digital you will most likely want to have a website so that people can browse all of your other products as well.
Placing products on your channel will help both your sales and your YouTube channel. This is because people who are loyal to your channel will begin to become loyal to your brand. That means, when they see that you are selling something, they will be more likely to trust that it is a quality product.
In the same way, your customers who also trust you and like your products will see that you have a YouTube channel and will likely subscribe to it because they have purchased from you in the past. Therefore, it is a pretty good system that will work hand in hand to build both your customer base and your fan base.
