Here’s a money-making method that simply involves hunting and editing videos.
People right now are creating TikTok compilation videos that are making tremendous money on YouTube. In fact, it’s kind of mind-blowing how much people are making using this little method.
Here’s how it works: When you upload videos to YouTube, your goal is to get a certain amount of views and subscribers that allow you to connect your channel to Google AdSense, which then starts playing advertisements at the beginning of your videos. You earn a percentage of the advertisement that’s being played.
People are taking a bunch of TikTok Videos and compiling them into one video, and then uploading that new video to YouTube.
People used to do this with Vine, and they were doing extremely well. Of course, the problem with that is Vine no longer exists so those channels ran out of content to post. TikTok is the new version of that.
If you go to YouTube and search TikTok compilation, and then filter it by view count, you’ll see videos with over 200 million views in six months.
If you do the math and figure out how much money they’re making, it gets insane. On YouTube you get paid per 1,000 views, and how much you get paid depends on the type of content you have.
But even being super conservative with our figuring, these top TikTok compilation videos most likely are earning well over a hundred thousand dollars in 6 months. In fact, it might be three times that much for the top viewed videos.
How much you earn will vary and I make no promises, but you can certainly see the potential in this. Keep in mind that throwing up just one video might not get you the YouTube traffic you seek. But being consistent and continuing to put up videos will bring the traffic.
Why do people love these videos? I think it’s because people want a quick laugh and they have short attention spans. Each clip inside the video is going to be maybe 5 to 10 seconds, and then it’s on to the next clip.
And when the video is over, most times the viewer then wants to watch another compilation, and another and so on.
How to Make the Compilations?
This isn’t going to be a whole primer on making video compilations, because frankly it’s pretty darn easy.
You choose a topic or theme for your video, and then search TikTok for appropriate videos.
Use SaveFrom.net or a service like it to download the videos.
And then use WeVideo.com or any software you choose to make the videos.
Both SaveFrom and WeVideo are drop dead easy to use, and if you do have questions, they have help sections. You can also look on YouTube for help as well, but I don’t think you’re going to need it.
Make it a practice to create and post at least one video a week. Make the videos 5 to 10 minutes long and no longer.
It’s better to have many shorter videos than a few long ones, because you’ll get more views and make more money.
If I were to convey one thing about TikTok, it’s this: Because it’s new AND it’s growing like wildfire, get in now and just DO something with it. Experiment and find out what works for you and your business.
There are going to be many more ways to monetize TikTok that haven’t even been thought of yet. You don’t always get the chance to be in on something new and hot, but when you do get the chance, it just makes good sense to DO something about it.
Enjoy, have fun, and watch for the possibilities and opportunities.
