Do you know there is such a thing as YouTube celebrity.

These are individuals or groups who have set up a channel on the video sharing platform, steadily pulling audience with their unique persona and content, gathering thousands and millions of views, which have attracted brands who drop big bucks for product placements, and ads.

These YouTube personalities also become YouTube partners which allows them to share revenue in ads with YouTube when an ad (overlay in-video and pre-roll ) runs through their channel. There are also display ads placed for monetization.

Have a niche

Focus on a particular area of interest and start building up from there. Make sure it’s where you have a natural liking for. That would help you keep producing content around that should money not start coming in as at when expected.

Build your community

You will be needing to connect and interact a whole lot more.  Watch and comment on videos of topics related to what you are into and relating with their content producers. Get friends and family to watch and engage with your production and ask for feedback.

Optimize for reach

It goes without saying that you’d have to create a YouTube channel. Use appropriate tags and Meta descriptions to help those looking for your kind of content. And endeavour to share on social media.
