Unlike most other online businesses YouTube has very minimal startup cost and the barrier to entry is significantly less than almost any other online business.
You can start a personality-based YouTube channel and make your own videos for free or you can start a cash cow channel (Top 10’s Sports, Celebrity, Gaming Etc) where you hire people to make the videos for you.
Whichever route you decide to take, the fact of the matter is you have an algorithm with billions of viewers in circulation on a day-to-day basis that you can leverage to establish an audience and eventually monetize that audience.
Over the last year, I have made thousands off of leveraging the YouTube algorithms free organic traffic on my personal brand channel which has helped me build massive monthly cash flow that I use to buy more YouTube channels, stocks, real estate, and other income producing assets.
YouTube will continue to scale as the #1 social media channel when it comes to making money online. The only thing I regret is not starting YouTube sooner. If you haven’t started here is your sign the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago the next best time is now.
