Find the best niche for your Youtube Shorts channel
There are some channels that post hundreds of YouTube Shorts and can’t seem to pass five views in a video and it seems like they are doing everything right. They have the title. They have the thumbnail and the video is not that bad. But on the other side, there are a new channels that started from scratch, published five YouTube Shorts, and they’re already at 100,000 subscribers.
So what’s the secret? How do you actually find the right Shorts ideas that will almost guarantee to get you a lot of views? And most importantly, how to even create those Shorts without filming anything and without being goofy in front of a camera? And the best way to discover your niche is to look at the keywords that are always trending. For this purpose, I use a free online tool called VidIQ. So you can just enter your niche idea and it will show you how many people are actually searching for that keyword and if the competition is high or not. And by the way, Shorts are currently pulling in over 6.5 billion daily views on YouTube and if you’re not using them right now, you are missing out on a lot of potentials. And there are even some rumors that Shorts will completely overtake the YouTube platform. So the sooner you start, the better it’s going to be. Anyways, you have all sorts of different Shorts niches like cats niche, dogs niche, makeup, couples, gaming, finance, fishing, and so on.
YouTube Keyword Research: How to Get More Views
And you can research all of them by using a free tool called VidIQ. And trust me, it’s a lot better to spend five minutes doing the research than to just jump into some random niche, waste hours creating Shorts, and get no views. So whenever you want to do some research, go over to VidIQ. It’s completely free. Enter some keywords in this box and see how many people are actually searching for them. The easiest option and the option that will allow you to make money with Shorts just by copying and pasting is to focus on the facts niche. Now, this is really optional, and the strategy that we will be talking about in this video works in pretty much any niche, but I will be focusing on the facts niche as an example. And right here, we have Luke Davidson who started his YouTube channel almost six months ago and grew from zero to over $500,000 a month in ad revenue alone. In fact, since he is getting over 4 million daily views, Social Blade estimates that his daily earnings are almost $20,000 dollars a day. Just keep in mind that ad revenue from YouTube Shorts can be really low and some creators barely even made this much money. That’s why inside this video, not only will I will show you how to make money with YouTube Shorts, but I will also show you how to add different revenue sources, so you can maximize your results. If you check out Luke’s YouTube channel, you will be able to notice that his videos are 30 to 40 seconds long, and are usually just a list of facts and different topics that he probably found from one Google search. Now, the reason this list-type of video works so well is that most of the viewers will stay to hear all the four or five or six facts that this guy has to share with them. And by dividing his Shorts into multiple segments, he’s able to hold the viewers’ attention for a longer period of time. And according to YouTube themselves, watch time is a key success metric for getting more views on YouTube.
The longer people watch your Shorts, the more YouTube will promote them. And there are all sorts of these different types of channels that are posting Shorts about different facts and people from all around the globe are making thousands of dollars with these types of channels. Let’s talk about how you can actually get those Shorts done. So, first of all, you will need an actual script for the video and if you are using the facts niche, you can go over to The Fact Site at Thefactsite.com, and here you can find lots of different facts. You can find 15 knowledgeable facts about Kentucky, 200 fun facts that you’ll love to know, 100 history facts they didn’t teach you at school, or 100 interesting space facts that’ll blow your mind. This is something that I would personally go with. Yes, you can definitely choose whatever you prefer. Just find something that you think a lot of people will be interested in. For example, 100 surprising technology facts that you didn’t know or 100 fun food facts you won’t believe are true. So, let’s select some of these.
So, just go over to thefactsite.com and find lots of different amazing facts on a particular subject. You even have the Popular Today thread, so what is popular right now? What is trending right now? What people are reading the most right now? So you can take advantage of this and make a video right now about something that’s hot and trending. Or you can also select different categories at the top of the website. You can hover your mouse where it says Entertainment, and you have Art and Design, Celebrities, Fashion and Beauty, Film and TV, Language, Music, and all that stuff. You have Science, you have a World and History, and lots of different things are available on thefactsite.com. So you know, maybe even something like this, 10 weirdest things that fell from the sky. I guess people would be interested to see something like that.
How to Make YouTube Shorts
And the last thing you need in order to make money with YouTube Shorts is an actual video. And for this, I personally use InVideo.
This is an absolutely free tool, that’s going to allow you to not only create video, but even generate voiceovers for those Shorts. So let me explain to you how it works. Now, obviously, you can use this for absolutely free, but it will leave a small watermark. So if you actually want to sign up and get unlimited access to this, you can use my affiliate link. You will have lots of different templates to choose from.
It’s really simple and easy to use. So this is going to be like six facts about space and each fact is going to be five seconds long, meaning that my video is going to be around 30 seconds long. That’s exactly what Luke was using to make over $500,000 a month from ad revenue from his YouTube Shorts. Now, that obviously doesn’t mean that you will make half a million dollars a month just because your videos are 30 seconds long, but there’s definitely something that works with shorter videos.
You would obviously change the background, so we’ll just click on the background, click either Remove Background, or you could just change it with something else. Here on the left-hand side, you can either select a video or an image, which you want to use, completely free of charge.
I highly recommend you change the text a little bit. Don’t just copy and paste the entire text, but maybe use some synonyms or just rewrite it in your own words.
You can apply lots of different animations, and you can customize everything. You can customize the colors, shadows, and all that stuff.
This can take less than 10 minutes to create 30-seconds long Shorts, and once you’re done editing your Shorts, you will be able to download and share them on your YouTube channel. But before that, make sure to add a voiceover, and to do so, you can just click on the Voice over right here and you can use the Text to Speech software. Just type your text in whatever language you prefer. I personally prefer to use English. You can even select the voice, whether you want it to be female or male, just select the voice you prefer and click the Generate Voiceover.
And you can select all sorts of different videos and images, which you want to use and include in your Shorts, here on the left-hand side and they’re all available to you once you sign up to InVideo. And finally, you’ll just need to upload it to your YouTube channel and repeat it as much as you prefer.
Now I will show you how you can maximize your results and potentially earn even more money.
You can go to a website like Teespring, upload different designs, and create a store for absolutely free, promote it with your YouTube channel in those Shorts videos, and whenever someone buys something from that store, you will earn a percentage of the sale. So you don’t need to own the product, you don’t have to ship anything, and you don’t have to print those T-shirts or anything like that.
Also, you can include affiliate marketing in those videos, so you can promote some affiliate offers in your niche. Just tell your audience to use the link from that description and if it’s something that they’re interested in, then most of them will use the affiliate link. For that, you don’t need to have a website. You don’t need to create a product. You don’t need to create a sales page, renting like that. You just need to drive traffic and earn a commission whenever you make a sale. And one more thing to remember, always make sure to upload vertical videos to your Shorts channel, include the #shorts in the title and the description, and keep those videos less than 60 seconds long. Preferably, make them around 30 seconds long.
