Well, the good news is that you can tap into YouTube traffic without having to be in the limelight and you’ll discover exactly how by the end of this mini-series.
Why You Should Tap Into YouTube Marketing
As I said, YouTube is an extremely powerful platform that receives on average over 15 billion visitors per month. It is no surprise that YouTube is the third most popular site worldwide (after Facebook and Google).
There are many ways you can go about making money on YouTube, such as through product reviews, video ads, launch jacking, branding, and so on. I’ll dive into these strategies in more detail in the upcoming episodes.
The barrier of entry is extremely low. You can get started with YouTube marketing on a zero-dollar budget. On top of that, you don’t need to be a tech geek to create awesome videos. As you’ll soon find out, any newbie can create videos. (Yes, you don’t even have to be in front of the camera!)
Once you follow each step that I’m about to share with you to a T and get your videos ranking correctly in the search engines, traffic will pour in on complete autopilot. And from here on, it’s only going to snowball!

How To Set Up Your YouTube Channel
First, you need to set up a Google Account, before you’re able to create a YouTube account. So simply set up your own Google account (here https://accounts.google.com/signup) and then head over to YouTube to set up your YouTube account by simply clicking on the ‘Sign in’ button in the top right-hand corner.
Next, you need to click on the little man figure on the top right-hand corner and then hit ‘YouTube Setting’.
On the following screen, click ‘Create a new Channel’.
On the next screen, you’ll be asked to enter a name for your channel and choose a category.
When it comes to building YouTube channels, you can either create one giant channel and upload all your videos on there to boost your channel authority, or you can create multiple Google Accounts and create many different channels so that you don’t keep all your eggs in one basket in case one of your channels gets banned.
This is completely up to you.
Once you have set up your account, there’ll be a pop-up on the right-hand corner to take a tour around your YouTube channel, if you like.
It probably looks a little plain at the moment, but don’t worry. I’ll show you how to beef it up soon in the next episodes and you’ll discover more on how to get started with YouTube marketing!
