How to become a successful YouTuber and earn money

YouTube content creation has also become one of the fast-rising digital marketing ways many people earn money through these, be it young or old persons.

People miss a few things in trying to create content and make money off it and end depressed and give up in the end because they realized it’s not as easy as it looked. 

It would be best if you were very patient.

Being a YouTuber is not something that will get you money at once; it requires a lot of time and patience.YouTube is such a competitive platform that demands much patience to get to your destination. Having patience and so much focus is very painful on YouTube.

You should be able to learn new stuff as the days go.

It would help if you considered learning new stuff from those in the game before you for a new YouTuber. Watch the videos and see how they do things because they’ve been around for a long and are making huge numbers. Watching other videos can teach you a thing or two on how to be successful as a YouTuber.

Develop unique content.

YouTube is full of similar videos of what you want to do, so what you’re bringing is nothing new to the viewers. But that doesn’t mean you break out and also be successful.

It’s all about craft and how you do your work. It would help if you had a different approach to your content, for example, creating a breakdown of music videos. Know that hundreds if not thousands of YouTubers are also into the analysis of music videos.

And the possibility of another YouTuber breaking down the video you’re planning on working on is very likely, but still doesn’t you can’t work on that exact video. You can work on that same video, and that’s where you have to prove your uniqueness to your viewers.

Set up SEO

YouTube is a very sophisticated search engine, and people use it a lot to discover new content. Because people are always searching on YouTube, you have a better chance to be found, seen, and enjoyed by choosing the right keywords.

If there are videos similar to the one you’re looking to create, look at the exact words you typed in for the results. Then try a different one to see how the results change so that you can see what a word or two of difference can make. Research the keywords you’d like to use, their popularity, and the keywords your competition uses.

All this is done just so when users search for videos on YouTube, and your similar content will also pop up as a suggestion.

Don’t be a time waster and make the video boring.

Some YouTubers spend minutes explaining a simple thing that can take just seconds sometimes. If you do that, most users will be bored and search for another video to watch.

For instance, you make a video on how to make a fruit smoothie. You don necessarily need to make a 15-to 20-minute video explaining teaching how to make a smoothie.

You can make it a short video of a maximum of 3-5 minutes because many YouTube users don’t like to waste time on a single video like that, most times because of data usage.

Identify a topic or aspect not majored by anyone and make it your major

Do you have a skill or knowledge of a specific topic that doesn’t already have a significant YouTube channel dedicated to it?

Or maybe you love assembling and dissembling a computer, and you feel like not many people prominent in that. Focus on that with good tactics. You’ll soon attract people who love the anatomy of computers to your page. 

Make sure you get the tools/gear to make and edit YouTube videos.

Another essential part of establishing yourself to be a successful YouTuber is to make sure you have a set of tools ready to record your videos and edit them.

Having these tools will enable you to make your content how you want it at its total capacity. Having your tools and editing skills is vital because many YouTubers don’t have their gear, so they go out to borrow.

What happens when you don’t the complete kit, but you record the videos anyway because they come out with low quality. No YouTube user would watch a video with low quality when they can get other videos with good quality.

Know how to monetize your page

First, you create a channel and give it a name. Secondly, you need to have an Adsense account, sign the terms and conditions, and comply with YouTube’s community guidelines.

After all that, you must have at least 1000 subscribers and reach 4,000 valid public watch hours in the past 12 months. Those are the main things you require to join YouTube’s partner program and earn money through your YouTube channel.


YouTube content creation can be very lucrative if taken seriously. Know the requirements needed to monetize your channel, have a different style with your content, try not to be a time-waster when explaining things in your video, go straight to the point, and don’t make the video too long to lose viewers and subscribers.
