How to Make Money Online with Youtube Videos

Youtube can help you make more money online (and offline).

Here’s what you need to do…

Make short, keyword focused videos about your training niche and put them on Youtube.


Google owns Youtube. Therefore, Youtube videos that are “tagged”with keywords will quickly end up on top of the google search rankings.

Within a few days of posting some videos on Youtube, my videos showed up on page 1 for several targeted fitness searches. And we found this out by accident…but now that we know what we are doing,we have some big plans for Youtube!

But I’ve made a few mistakes…

1) First, my videos are too long, so keep them short (less than 2 minutes).

Take a look at this comparison…

My 90-second 300 workout video has almost 200,000 views, while my videos that are over 3 minutes have less than 25,000 views. Still good, but the numbers would be higher if the vids were shorter.

2) I also need to make my videos more entertaining.

If you can be funny or controversial, your views will go up. Just never be boring!

3) And I now suggest disabling the “comments” option on your videos.

Since I didn’t, my videos are now spammed with jerks promoting filthy websites and other juvenile behavior. This makes it very difficult for me to share with others, because this will really turn off your viewers.

The other option is to use the “moderate comments” tool, but that requires work…

4) Lastly, I mentioned you can use Youtube to promote your online training services.

Here’s how…just make a short, fun to watch video of yourself and use the keyword and title tags someone would use to search for a trainer in your area.

For example, if you specialize in female fitness in Cincinnati, name your video “personal trainer for women in Cincinnati” and then show ‘em what you got!

It’s like “America’s Got Talent”, but for personal trainers!

So get started using this cheap, effective media immediately, and you’ll get a return on your investment before the end of the week.

And hey, if you are a real estate agent, landscaper, or beauty salon owner, don’t think this strategy won’t work for you. IT WILL.

Just do a cool video and use the right terms for your industry.

PS – Here’s what OSP members are saying about the OSP newsletters…

“I have to let you know that your monthly newsletters are phenomenal. You know I read Kennedy’s, Lee’s, Furrey’s, and about a half dozen other paid ones, and I have to say that yours is right up there at the top. Even if I have already read some of the tips you give, I can more clearly see how to apply them to the fitness industry. Personally, I feel anyone who couldn’t make just 1-2 sales more (pays for newsletter) from this information just isn’t trying. Keep up the great work and I look forward to sharing my progress soon. “

VERY good blog post, helpful, useful and right on target. I began using video after attending Ryan’s bootcamp. I met you there. I’ve learned some of this the hard way and you have crystallized it well in this post.

Hope to work with you in the future. I like your stuff and what appears to be a high level of integrity.
