One of the first videos I made explained How to Earn Money from Youtube and now in this GrapeVine Review, I’ll help you to take your Youtube channel to the next level.
Yes, you can earn money with a Youtube Channel other than with Adsense.
Of course, having a regular Adsense paycheck coming in is a nice to have, but the real money is in sponsorships. And that’s where Grapevine can help you make extra money online.
What is Grapevine?
It’s free to join and if you don’t think they’re the right brand managers for you, then you have no obligations.
And with Grapevine, you don’t need to have an exclusive contract as you are free to work with other agencies.
How Does Grapevine Work?
Once you’ve established your Youtube Channel with 1000 subscribers and consistently publish video content, you can sign up with Grapevine as a Creator.
Next you’ll browse the brand opportunities that are currently available and select one or two.
Then Grapevine will review your selections to determine if you and the brand might be a good fit.
If you’re approved, you’ll create sponsored content and promote it on your channel.
Once it’s published, you get paid on the same day.
Let’s take a look at the GrapeVine review video…
How to Earn Money From Youtube
Making money from Youtube isn’t just about creating content and turning on the Adsense program. There is much more money to be gained through sponsorships and other programs.
How to Make Money from Ads on YouTube
First start a Youtube channel, and upload a few videos. Then you need to attract subscribers and build video views.
Create content that people enjoy and they will subscribe. Try to be unique as possible.
Then when your channel has some regular viewers and subscribers, you can apply for an Adsense account.
This account can then be linked back to your YouTube account and you can turn on Monetization for your videos.
How to get a Sponsorship on Youtube
Well as you’ve seen, you can easily get started with a company like Grapevine, and with as little as 1000 subscribers.
However, they are many other companies that offer a similar products, like SharePop and Gen.video.
Just concentrate on building your YouTube Channel first and then join the company that represents the brands that interest you.
How to get a Partnership on Youtube
The easiest way to get a partnership on YouTube is to produce amazing content and the Youtube Network Partners will come to you.
However if you want to be more proactive, then you’ll need to go directly to them.
Here’s a list of the Top Youtube Networks as identified on SocialBlade.
But it’s much easier to find a popular YouTube Channel that does something similar to you and then find out which network they joined. Obviously, that network would already have an interest in that particular type of content.
To find a Partner Network you can use Social Blade to do a search on a popular channel and then click on the ‘Network’ link to get more contact details for the network. See below, although as you can see I haven’t joined a network as yet.
Grapevine Referral Program
At the time of publishing this Grapevine review, there wasn’t a Grapevine Referral Program in place. If this changes in the future, I’ll update this review.
Building a YouTube audience is only the start of your YouTube strategy. Once you’ve got a steady flow of viewers, you should explore brand sponsorship with companies like Grapevine as this is where the real money is.
Remember, Big Brands will pay Big Money, to get in front of the right audience.
Potential Earnings: 6-MONEYBAGS
All though there is a big upside to getting YouTube sponsorship, you’ll need a decent sized audience to attract the big money.
Time Required: 2.5+ Hours
It’ll take plenty of time to build your YouTube Channel, so hang in there.
