Making Money on YouTube doesn’t have to be limited to Adsense Monetization. You can actually make quite a bit of money on YouTube through affiliate marketing using sites like Amazon, Ebay or Web Hosting Companies.

This is how a lot of Tech Reviewers on YouTube make their money and their audience gains value by not paying anything extra while supporting the creators for presenting great information!

Leveraging affiliate programs on YouTube can be very lucrative if you have a large enough audience that is already doing online shopping and willing to support you in this way.

Putting a handy disclaimer in the bottom of your videos and on your about page or in your annotations covers you where this is concerned. Many big YouTubers have been using Affiliate Links to make money on YouTube for years.

Hi Roberto,
Can you talk about the best kinds of printers to buy for Freelancers or college students? under $150?

Pause Reset Play says:

Do you have any information on viewership and subscriber level requirements for Amazon Associates? Also, what are some other affiliate programs you’d recommend, in general? I see Best Buy, Target, and Newegg all have affiliate programs. Would these be viable options for YouTube, depending on niche? Thanks, Roberto!

Great info as usual, Roberto. Question: can you be part of an Affiliate Marketing program and still be part of AdSense? 

Fop Doodle says:

When you sign up for the program, it says you can use 50 websites. Would I use my channel URL or do you have to use URL for individual videos?

Hi Roberto. Did your rep tell you to use the “This video contains paid promotion such as paid product placement, sponsorships or endorsement” checkbox when placing Amazon affiliate links in the description? There seems to be a lot of conflicting info about whether or not that should be used. Thanks!

DeacSpeaks says:

Great video and thanks for sharing! I knew about this program but I was never aware that just about anyone can sign up for it. I usually just thought it was for tech or photo reviewers. But I’m definitely going to check out both Amazon and Ebay since I frequently use them both myself.
