Bonus: Make and share videos
The next time you catch a once-in-a-lifetime moment or silly event on camera, share the video online. You might just get lucky enough to have your video go viral. Of course, it doesn't happen for everyone. But you can still earn money by sharing videos on social media.
YouTube: Whether it’s a short clip of your pet or a fully produced product review, you can make money with it on YouTube. You certainly do not need a television studio to create moneymaking YouTube videos. Click here to listen to my free podcast for a detailed breakdown on how to make money on YouTube.
Amazon Video Direct: While everyone knows about YouTube, Amazon Video Direct is still a secret. Here, you can post videos for free and anyone around the world can watch them. If your video is free to the public, Amazon Video Direct will keep 45 percent of the advertising revenue it generates. If you make a video that’s available for rent or subscription, Amazon will keep 50 percent of the advertising revenue. For videos that only Amazon Prime members can watch, Amazon will pay you $0.15 for each hour that a person streams your videos.
