Hello ,

This week our focus is YouTube for content creators.

Enjoy this excerpt from Shelley’s LinkedIn article, YouTube Creators Can Make a Lot of Money.

My business partner Toby and I are experiencing one of those defining moments we have at least once a year.

It's one of those reflective crossroads when we ask ourselves, "What are we doing? What do we want? Is this working? Should we try something else?"

Are you reflecting too?

The title of this post comes from an article I read recently, Need a passive income stream? Here are 7 ways to make money online.

Way number 5 is Start a YouTube Channel. The first sentence says, "YouTube creators can make a lot of money - and it doesn't necessarily require a lot of expertise."

As somebody who has been uploading videos on YouTube since 2009 and livestreaming since 2017, I believe it should actually say:

YouTube Creators Can Make a Lot of Money - but most don't.

As with every industry, there are a few top YouTubers we point to who are raking in millions while the rest of us struggle to reach 20 or more views per video.

How to Make Money on YouTube in 2022


YouTube is a great place to make a living. I have a YouTube channel with over 1,000,000 views and have made over $12,000 just with YouTube ad revenue.

I’ll admit that I’ve only scratched the surface, and there are content creators out there making more than my lifetime earnings every month.

So, how do other YouTuber influencers like PewDiePie, Jeffree Star, and Dude Perfect rake in seven and even eight-figure incomes every year and create incredibly successful digital real estate assets?

Shopify partners with YouTube to shore up sales from content creators

Reuters July 19, 2022

Shopify Inc on Tuesday announced a partnership with Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) YouTube to allow merchants to sell through the video platform, as the Canadian company looks to tap into the growing number of content creators launching their own e-commerce stores.

The partnership, which builds on an existing one with Google, will allow merchants to integrate their online stores with YouTube, which reaches over two billion monthly users.

Shopify's director of product, marketplaces and creators, Amir Kabbara, said the partnership with YouTube would help boost conversion rate and in turn the gross merchandise volume, a key success metric, for the company.

Merchants can tag and pin products during live streams, show a curated list of products in a product shelf below on-demand videos and add a store tab under their YouTube channel to feature their products.
