The top earning digital marketers on YouTube are Kevin David, Tai Lopez, and GaryVee. The one thing all three have in common is their use of monetization.
How do marketers get paid?
Monetization is when you get paid a certain amount of money per ad that pops up on your videos. Those ads that pop up before and after and sometimes in the middle of YouTube videos is what pays YouTubers. How much you make off of monetizing your videos is dependent on how much traffic you can draw. Kevin, Tai, and Gary all monetize their videos. Monetization is a great way to earn a lot of money on YouTube.

This goes to show how merchandise is a big element for making a profit on YouTube. If you’re looking to become a digital marketer on YouTube you want to consider a few things.
Make it work for you
First you want to figure out what kind of content you want to create. Ask yourself questions like, what is the purpose of my channel? What kind of digital marketing am I teaching? Who will be watching my videos (audience demographics). Asking yourself these questions can help you create the best quality content possible. After you find a purpose, start making merchandise designs. Merch is a great way to bring in a few extra bucks as a digital marketer.
