Show Video

In. 2016. I made one most popular videos on YouTube 10 ways to make passive income online and a lot of you have asked me to do an updated, video to that because a lot of you are interested in ways that you can make money online and. How you can actually build some kind of passive, income for yourself and this, is not a video for those of you who are lazy or into, get-rich-quick, schemes, because this is gonna require actual. Work but, I'm gonna tell you exactly, how, to do it, hey. Everybody this is roberto blake of robertoblake.com helping. You create something awesome today welcome to my, update video 10 ways to make passive income online for. Those of you who might be new to the channel or just stumbled across this video my name is roberto blake I'm creative entrepreneur, I'm a public speaker, and I'm, the founder of awesome creator academy.com now. The purpose of this video is not to sell you a course, on internet marketing or passive, income or any of those things it's to show you the, way that I've used passive, income to make thousands, of dollars a month and to give you some insights into how you can do that this, is not for those of you who are not willing to put in hard work now to reap the benefit later if you're looking for videos about different, topics other than this like investing in real estate I highly, suggest that you move on to another video what, I'm gonna be focusing on is the things that I've actually done, to, make money online or the things that I'm actively, doing right, now as of this moment to make money online and they're, the kind of things that have helped me like. Grow, a very, substantial. Revenue, stream from, different, things we're gonna be talking about e-commerce we're, gonna be talking about email marketing we're gonna be talking about using social media and content platforms.

Like YouTube, and Instagram to build an audience and set up a marketing funnel so you can build something around either a product based business, whether that's your own products, or others, so like I said if you have no interest, in making legitimate. Passive income, and doing. It what I consider to be the hard, way then, it feel free to click off of this video it may not be for you if you, are struggling, right now and you need money in the next 30 days I would actually recommend watching, my video on start. Freelancing if you're broke and watch the videos in my how to become a freelancer, series that is completely free and it will actually help you make, money by, either. Leveraging a skill that you already have or, providing. Something, through an online platform such. As up work or something in terms of data entry there are ways to make money right now if you, need to do that I highly, recommend you watch those videos this. Video is, not that this video is about building a system that, you're going to benefit from in the long term so now we've got that out of the way I want to talk to you about the ways that I've made money online obviously, you guys probably realize that made money online from, YouTube, both, in passive, income and active. Income, there are videos on YouTube that make me hundreds, of dollars a month that I shot, a year, ago two, years ago maybe. Longer and I still make over a hundred dollars a day from. Individual. Videos here on YouTube that I did a while back in addition to all the money that I made upfront on those, videos whether they had sponsors, there, are affiliate, links in nearly every, single video that I make so they have the ability to make me money. No matter what regardless of what YouTube's policies, are and I also leverage, the Instagram, platform, I grew over 10,000, followers there I have the swipe up feature so, that I can sell my merchandise, I can sell products, that I've developed I can do any number of things I also have, enough of a platform to, be able to work directly with sponsors, that's active, income so there are a lot of options, for you making money online and, there are a lot of diverse ways to approach it and to do it I'm gonna walk you through the. Ways that I did I'm gonna walk you through ten ways that I did it and what, you need to actually pull, this off both in terms of resources, skills. Knowledge. And again. Access. To the ability to build an audience I'm. Not very blunt there's. Very little chance of you building consistent. Powerful. Passive income and making over a hundred dollars a day if you are not willing to build, an audience or. Leverage. Advertising. Or do. Content, marketing and if, you don't either have a skill, a trade. Knowledge. Or the ability, to develop a product or the, salesperson, ship to sell an existing, product as an, affiliate, then, making.

Passive Income online may. Not be for you yet or if you need to develop those skills I've made other videos on this channel they're completely free so, you can get a skill like video editing or, Photoshop. Or any number of things that would put you a position, to, make passive, income one of the best ways you can make passive, income online is your, own direct. Product. Sales and why I talk about this in this case I'm talking about digital, products, you know why digital products are amazing well one I make a lot of money every month off of digital products, and I'm very happy about that because it keeps me independent. By, making a digital product a very, little overhead, the platform, that I use for my digital products, whether they're digital download, products, or online, courses which we'll talk about in a minute and other things is I use a platform called kajabi, you can use other online, platforms you don't have to use kajabi I'm actually building something out on teachable, as well and you can also use think if ik and there, are things like Clickbank, there are so many different places where you can make digital products if you are on a budget you can use a website called Gumroad there's also self. I those. Are platforms, that allow you to sell digital download products I sell. A graphics. Pack because I had a backgrounds a graphic designer, hold, the You Tube starter, kit I've recently branched out and I'm launching a new product around Instagram, templates, as well and it's, cuz I had the background skills of graphic designer Peter, McKinnon, someone else who's very large here on YouTube is a photographer, and filmmaker and he sells. Nuts. Which are you know something that you would need for color. Grading in video and he also sells Lightroom. Presets for. Adobe Lightroom and he does that through self I so there are plenty of people that are actually making passive, income with their digital products they're based in a skill, or an expertise, that they had so, like I said if you don't want to use a platform, that, focuses. On things. Like digital courses, per se um and. Things of that nature then you can use something like Gumroad or self I or, II junkie, and you could sell like any digital, download product if you're doing templates, like website, templates, or. Graphics. Packs and things of that nature illustrations. Then if, things like graphic river comm and websites, in the Envato network and those are all really great opportunities, for you but there's, other things you can do like I said digital. Downloads, are just, one, source, of revenue if you, want to go and you want to do something just a little bit more tangible let's, say then, I would say you could do print on demand products. That's something I've done in the past with, websites like. Oh calm, and, CafePress. Calm, and even deviantART, and you. Know there could be ok. Money there the reason I like digital download, products a little bit more is the, margins, are better when, I make a digital download product. I keep, more than 95%, of, all the money on that, product because I have cheap it is to, host it on that. Other platform. Ok but. If you want to do something else and you want to do like posters, and other print-on-demand products. Then, you should look into that the margins, will not be as good on that but, it is something that you can do and a lot of you will say well Roberto you know I need to build an audience, to accomplish, that but you.

Should Be doing that no, matter what anyway in the age of social media building, an audience is free, and that's free, website, traffic and back, in the old days a lot of us had to buy ads and for some of my product sales I still buy ads. Now. If you don't feel you have the skills to, do print on demand products, as maybe you don't have a background in design. Or illustration, or you don't feel like you have the knowledge to, sell with like you know doing a digital product you have another option you can actually do what's called affiliate, marketing, and this, is actually gonna go beyond, like the third way and also into the fourth way cuz I'm gonna explain something really cool to you guys so with affiliate marketing you can sell someone, else's, product, and you can get a commission, so you can get these sales and it's really, convenient, because you can use a website like Amazon, and you can get affiliate, revenue commissions, their problem, with something like Amazon though is you're gonna only get like two to, four percent, usually. On average on that, affiliate program but there are better programs, out there directly. With companies Amazon. Just has the most robust. Offering. Of diverse, products, for whatever John or niche or hobby or expertise, that you're dealing with or whatever audience you're dealing with that's why so many people go to it but if you go into very, specific categories. For example if you're somebody that's either in websites. Web, hosting, web, design, or online. Business, or e-commerce you, can do stuff with web hosting companies, I do affiliate, marketing with Wix and Bluehost, and I, can make anywhere from 85, to 100, dollar plus commissions. On every, one of those sales so in terms of making $100, a day that's, really straightforward because it translates to a single. Transaction, or at least two transactions. To accomplish, that but also for. People that are saying to the YouTube niche I have another affiliate program that I use called epidemic, sound it's for the background music it's for the like royalty stock music that I'm able to use as an online content, creator and that's, $30. Per sale for, a 30, day free trial, so, if people sign for a 30 day free trial, I still, get a commission on that and it's a pretty nice, Commission for what it is so if three people use. Any of the links and be literally, over, 1,000. Videos that I've made I have, the opportunity, to make a $30 sale there, so, again if, you find the right affiliate, program for your niche it can be a lucrative opportunity, and it may not be that challenging, even with a small audience, if it is the right audience, to, do $100, a day now. Here's where that gets into an interesting and forth way to Bank passive income because we talked about affiliate, sales but. Let's talk about referral, sales you might be thinking Roberto, aren't those the same thing, the way that I'm phrasing, this they're, not because.

You See the way that I'm talking about this is if you have your own digital download, product you, can have your own affiliates, and so you're making referral, sales so. The way that that would look is let's, say that somebody. Was an affiliate for me then, I give a 30%, commission on a $100. Product, if that product is sold at full price no coupons, and it's, $100, and somebody. Is getting a 30%. Referral. Commission, on that then, guess what happens without me, doing, the work of making the sale ivory made the product, but, I get $70. And they, get 30 so, if you, build a digital, product and you do referral, commissions with your own affiliates, you're, making the majority. Of the money on their sales they're, still getting something you, own the product you own the brand they're. Just operating, as a sales force for you and it's, not like you're paying them hourly for that you're paying them only on the sales they make so, again. Referral. Sales are, very lucrative, to you as someone, who owns a product, and so, this, kind of leads into the fifth way of making passive. Income is an addition have your own digital download products if you are skilled, at something you, can make a course, for it and that's, another. Passive. Income stream that you can make so that's number five, but ties directly to number four because the more products, you have between. You know make, a digital product make, an online course that's a product that you own and having, those. Referral. Sales, puts. Money back in your pocket for. Somebody, else making, the sale for you and reaching, an audience that you may not have so. Again if you, are struggling to build an audience or you. Would like to, access someone, else's audience, those. Referral, sales are a good. Way for, you to make more money that's how you can scale your business. Speaking. Of building an audience building. An audience on YouTube gives. You access to, the YouTube Partner, Program where. You can make passive, income through advertising. So, usually. I say, that passive income means building a product based business, but it could also be building, a content, based business if you're gonna leverage, advertising. Placements, and spots now, there, are a couple of ways to think about this you can also do this with a podcast, by the way it's just easier. In general, to do it with YouTube, because, it's, all handled, for you but. From, a passive income standpoint, YouTube. Places ads before the. Top potentially, after or, in, between, your videos they could do banner ads on your videos there, could be pre-roll, and postural, ads if you do a very long piece of content there can be mid-roll ads that are just like the ads in between television shows so, you could do that, and it, can be lucrative there. Are some creators that don't make a lot of money per view with it and there are others that make an extraordinary amount, of money per, thousand, views with it and what. I will tell you about this and I've done dedicated. Videos on this that you can check out on the channel is one I can tell you how through, those videos to build an audience on YouTube but the thing that I want to caution you on is if you want to go there and you want to make money you have to consider whether the genre, and niche that you're playing in is one. That has money to back it in the, form of the advert, so, you want to do some research there you won't watch the other videos I've done covering this but it is a valid way to make passive income and I make a couple thousand dollars a month directly, off the advertisers. That's not counting active, income in terms of sponsorships. Live.

Donations. Via chats, that happen through what YouTube called super chat etc. Etc there, are so many ways to make money on YouTube and I've covered a lot of them here on the channel the, other great thing about YouTube, is that YouTube, could be a distribution. And marketing funnel, for you to sell your other digital products whether that's your, print-on-demand products. Whether it's your online courses, whether, it's the, digital products, you, can sell all of that whether it's the affiliate, marketing, the, referral. Sales, there's so many ways to leverage that through YouTube and through podcasting. Vlogging, or Instagram, that is ridiculous. Which actually brings us to number six. Number. Six is. Merchandise. By. Selling your own merchandise your, own t-shirts. Or hats or whatever you, can actually make substantial, you know revenue, from, your existing audience and the thing is I like Instagram, for this almost, as much if not more than YouTube, and yes. I'm aware to make real money with this you will have to build an audience once again I think you should be doing that anyway I don't think that should be a barrier for you and I've done free content to help you build an audience the great thing is with, merchandise, though is people. Don't, even have to be so insanely. Enamored, of the content, if the shirts, are cool, enough so just. Make a dope t-shirt, and you're. Good to go and like, I said you can put marketing, behind this I think Instagram, is undervalued. Not only as a content, marketing platform. That can result in real sales but, also people. Refuse. To do even a modest, advertising spend, in order to put money in and make more money on the back end so I really think that that's something you should look into so, far we've covered making your own digital products, we've talked about making print on demand products, we talked about merchandise, we've talked about YouTube. We've talked about affiliate, sales and we've, talked about referral, sales let's. Talk about. Royalties. Number. Seven, royalties. So in my case there, are a lot of ways you could make royalties but the main way that I'm focusing, on royalties were now is that actually. Licensed. A course, of mine to, lynda.com. And LinkedIn, so they have, exclusive. Publishing rights for that but, I and, getting, royalty. Checks from that so that's something you can think about is where you can license content and the thing is it doesn't have to be a course you can do this with music there are so many ways to, do licensed, content and here's, another thing that that could tie into let's talk about number eight let's talk about stock. Media, by doing stock, media licenses, in terms of stock photography images. Illustrations. Video, audio. You, have the ability to go, to all these different platforms. That those things are distributed on and marketers, and advertisers and, creators, could buy those things and you will get a commission, you will get a cut of that so, you, know you're paying for the distribution on the back end of you, know them taking, some of the money upfront but you're making sales, you'd never make on your own because as we pointed out building an audience is hard getting traffic is hard I'm gonna recommend black, box I'm gonna link to that down below in fact everything I'm talking about I'll have detailed, stuff, and I have links they'll probably be affiliate links to, those things down below for you guys to use as a resource but with black box it automatically. Distributes, you to multiple, stock websites so you don't have to re-up load, the same assets, over, and over and over again so this is a very, good way for, you guys to make passive income off of things you might already have sitting on your hard drive you my array have images.

Graphics Photos, video, that, are going to waste that somebody could take advantage of and you could make money off of let's, talk about number nine number nine is a really interesting one because it's something that I'm working, on right this moment but a lot of my friends have benefited from this and they've inspired me, to tackle this one and that. Is going, into ebooks. And, audiobooks. And, again I've talked about some of these things but not as in-depth, I think in previous, videos but with ebooks and audiobooks the thing that intrigues me is that, with, an e-book there's the opportunity to. Link out to, resources, and to tie it to number 10 which is email marketing which I'm gonna go deeper into but, with your ebook, you can link out to, the, opportunity, for email marketing by, offering, free, downloads, in the e-book or the audiobook. And resources. That go to that and in, exchange someone, has to give you their email address now, you've captured that email address you can give them the free things that they signed up for but, you can also put them into an automated, email sequence, that could mark it to them in other ways and through this email marketing, you have the ability passively, through a system, to. Potentially. Sell them your existing, digital download products your print-on-demand product, your merchandise, your, online course. Affiliate. Links. To things that fit, the, thing that they asked for in terms of the value proposition so, every, other form of passive income for the most part that we discussed, is now, accessible, through, the distribution of email marketing because we're talking about building, a system here so, by, building this system by being within this ecosystem of. Having. All these diverse revenue streams or a few of them are the ones that fit you and then being able to tie that to content, marketing email marketing or even online advertising, you, have the ability to grow this even, bigger and so, that's how people really, make a living, off a passive, income it's, not something they do overnight it's not something they do in 30 days it's not something they do in 60 days this, is a long haul, incremental. Process and I wanted to walk you through, that and I wanted to give, you a little bit more insight and depth into. How, it actually works. Something. That I won't cover in future videos so if you found this helpful and you want me to give more details, about this or you want me to break down these things individually, I'm happy to do that in other videos and there's actually a couple of videos now linked down below and, I'll link in the info, card where, I've actually covered. Some of these topics I think I've actually touched on quite a few of them so there we go ten ways ten legitimate. Ways you.

Can Make passive, income online. This. Is something that I feel is accessible, to more of you than you might be thinking there are a lot of you who already have a skill there are a lot of you already have knowledge, and thing. Is building. An audience is something, that you can do, it's not something, that isn't. On the, table I've done, so many videos on the shell to help you build an audience whether it's in YouTube, or grow that email list or even. Build your own website or start, a podcast and, I'll link to those resources, as well because they're totally free, and like I said I don't need to sell you a course on any of this anybody, selling you a course on this this is fine and it might help you might be the person who learns and benefits from that and there are people who are gonna learn and benefit from your online course, I want you to stop thinking I want people to stop having this conversation that, passive income is somehow a scam, or its scummy or, it's a daydreamer it's for the people who are lazy it's for people who are smart, and for people who respect and value their time it's, for people who want to start a family it's for people who want to spend more time for their family or is for people who don't feel they've been respected, and earned what, their knowledge is worth in. Traditional. And conventional means. And jobs so, if that's someone like you then I hope that this video was helpful and, I hope it helps you take your first steps toward. Either some, extra money on the side or real financial, freedom if you, have questions please feel free to drop those in the comment section down below I'm gonna answer as many of them as I can especially, the first day, in the first hour this video is out that's why I'm most active, on the, video so you'll want to get in on that early if there's a question that you really want an answer from me, on I'll, try and tackle it liked this video if you liked it don't forget to subscribe hit, the notifications, if you want to actually catch the rest of my videos because YouTube.

#QOTD What is holding you back from getting started making money online? Also SHARE this video with anyone you think it will help!! I’ll be uploading new videos 12PM EST Mon-Friday so SUBSCRIBE and hit NOTIFICATIONS!!!

Quite honestly I'm not sure I need it? As someone who has a full time day job and get along just fine, monetizing my stuff online seems greedy and the return on the time invested sometimes doesn't seem worth it. Still, if I am putting things online I may as well try to monetize it. It's summer so I have more time to dedicate to this sort of thing (teacher by trade). If I do get any extra money, I can always put it away for my kid's future.

It always boils down to fear of various types. What I need to do is channel my inner Gimli: "Certainty of death, small chance of success. What are we waiting for?" He just goes for it. The other part is I'm too much in my head. I'm not grounded enough. I need to be more grounded to have more focus so that I can motivate myself through those fears and instead of just thinking about it, I just do it.

Sup Roberto Blake

Fear of the instability trying might cause( I don’t know how to manage my current life with it) , I also just don’t know where to start. I don’t want to start any business and hate that job too.

Loved the video, answered a lot of my questions, and aim looking forward to see more of your videos on this.

I will be honest I always worry about taxes etc and how much you can earn before taxes etc thats what would make me weary.

Hi Roberto, or anybody reading: for affiliate marketting, how do you access this area outside of amazon? Do you have to approach companies to provide an affiliate link or do websites usually provide an affiliate program?

Hey would love more information on creating your first ebook and digital products how to distribute etc! Thanks for everything Roberto!

Any advice ? Took a break from YouTube. Went from 1MILL to 120k views a month :/

Thanks for this video Roberto! I'm currently in the process of making digital products and have been focusing on growing my email list. I need to get into affiliate marketing next.

Really nice and concise presentation of realistic ways to potentially make a living through digital work...also nice to have something that's not just clickbait to sell a 'get rich fast' ebook that gives digital workers a bad rep. I would title the video how to monetize your digital/online work for accuracy though.

glad I watched your video, im a programmer and always thought what's the best way to start making online income from selling digital products, there is a lot of online services that allow that but I have no experience. Great video ♥

Nice.

I have a much briefer and maybe more awesome comment for you Roberto. I definitely want to pursue some passive streams which I haven't tapped yet, but what about active streams of income with skills common to YouTubers? Beyond thumbnails I do very little "art" so I don't see how I can do a few of your passive income makers, so I'm wondering more about active income on YouTube or active versions of the passives you teach here which translates outside of passive income to active.

Congratulations on 325K subscribers. Great content as always. Also, as you stated it won’t happen overnight, it’s a lack of consistency that usually prevents most people from succeeding.

This guy always talks sense and he puts work into his films

Thanks Roberto!!! This is very helpful !!!! :)

What's your advice for music reaction/review channels for affiliate programs? E.G. Don't see how Amazon affiliate could be valuable at all due to the fact almost no one buys music via Amazon Music. Any alternative suggestions?

The biggest roadblock seems to be getting a routine that includes making videos, products, etc. I know you can't have time for it all but not being able to prioritize isn't helping. Thanks for this video Roberto

I delivered a livestream while feeding the baby. I get it, but an excuse is just that.

Ralph! I didn't expect to see you here! I had this video up all day so I could leave a big comment after watching it all. Watched all but the last 5 minutes before the day got away from me. Trying to buy a house sure is in the way of growing my followers and learning how to make money outside of YouTube with YouTube as a part of my strategy versus it honestly being the only "effective" strategy at this time.

Yes it probably would. As one of the poster children of adhd, anything to do with time is just lost to me :) . I just invested in a mind mapping program to keep things in front of me but it doesn't help make a routine (when to do what ) though :) Thanks again for all your help.

Would a video on getting everything done help?

I luv this guy!

Interesting video! Thanks for sharing

I love you

Thanks so much for always inspiring! This was awesome!!

Hi Do you have a web designer or do you design your own websites?

Typically I do it myself but have been looking at having someone local do an overhaul and I can do the minor updates and all photography and graphics

Roberto what about Teespring and similar sites?? Is it worth?

Roberto Blake Appreciate it man , I m learning a lot from from you about buisness side.

Yes, working on a video with this and the YouTube integration

Oh yeah. i've been waiting for this one for a long time. thanks Roberto. you're blessed!

Great points here, Roberto. I added something new to my passive income plate. Merchandise and I'm right with you, it's a great way to earn money. I also have affiliates. I've worked with the amazing Tube buddy for a sponsorship and looking to work with other companies. I'm with you, I believe in putting eggs in many baskets.

You make 2-4% through Amazon? I made 13% off of a sale (once) through an eBay affiliate link, but it's almost always more than 4%

I love what you say at the end about respecting and valuing time and knowledge/ skills that are not valued in traditional careers/ jobs. That's exactly why I took advantage of transitioning my handmade biz into a teaching artist and online entrepreneurial path for myself. It's actually a lot more hard work vs. my previous "regular paycheck jobs", but many people don't understand that. I have thankfully gained graphics knowledge in my jewelry stuff that has started to benefit me in offering digital content. So, I really appreciate what your discussing here. I think that my main issue is in streamlining the places and procedures that I have expanded my offerings, in addition to just making jewelry. Since opening my digital content up last March, I've already surpassed my jewelry making products and teaching income opportunities. The great thing about the digital content that I do now is that I was already making this stuff and decided to see if it would be valuable to others like me. So, I guess my main issue is TIME and streamlining so that everything I post is not taking away ALL my time from actually MAKING more content. That is the struggle I seem to have right now. Thank you again for this information!

Sparkle. I think I get one of your issues for sure. It's so much work for me to edit up great content, but I don't stop recording great content. This slows down the work I do to edit and I often wonder if I should try to "catch up" on editing instead of recording more. But something I discovered on the way may help both of us now that I thin about it. Some of what I shoot, turns out to be not that great when I try to make it a video. Having different projects which I can edit up makes me able to cherry pick what matters to me most. Usually what matters to me most isn't what most people care about. Knowing that much of what I do is a deeper niche, I realize that income outside of AdSense, but still in my world of creation is truly key. At the same time, I do make content which the relative masses rage over and I do get a peace of that pie, but when I know a video is a piece of that pie, I try to release it as my best work ever...and it may not even make a difference. You see, the right psychology on a thumbnail or title, or what not matters more than the content and we really need to come up with a term other than click bait for legitimately great thumbnails which aren't bait, but just great at representing the right part of our work to both catch a viewer and KEEP the viewer. A few of my top ten were stinkers until I rethought thumbnails and titles. Some of it sparks a stronger negative reaction from the community, but you know what? That's what I was actually trying to do. Change the world. Realize, that I rethought tons of my lesser "loved" content in titles and thumbnails. If it's already doing poorly what could it hurt? YouTube says that and meta keyword changes can hurt people finding your content if you change how it's represented, but if it's already under performing, again, what can it really hurt?

Great tips! My only frustration is that Amazon Affiliates just shut down my account bc I didnt have enough sales. I was using links on my blog and channel for food products, gear, etc and they decided I needed my account shut down. That is super frustrating. Why cant they just leave it be and let it grow. Just rating. Any tips on this? Thanks Roberto!

Ha ha doing this now after seeing your original video. It's a slow start but I know it will pick up as I create more content.

Likewise.

Thank you

Appreciate it Roberto

Hey Roberto! Great video and advice. It's true that many of us want instant success but I've personally learned that that rarely happens.

I am working on some Video & Audio kits for beginners and for advanced creators. So it keeps them from not having to burn up Google to find a kit to use. Make it easier for a customer it will increase the chance of them buying from you. Great video by the way. Love when I see my pinwheel shows 4K. I slide the video over to my 4k screen and go full size.

Great use as needed, that is what I am here for.

Great idea! No worries of me stealing the idea from you. I need your ideas for skills I lack! lol. :)

Glad I came across this video... & your channel really love your content and in depth info about growth ... Thank you the amazing content hope to learn more and apply to growing my business... Would def be honored to see more videos on this method your are talking about because the value is really high

Okay okay okay. Watched it once. Took it all in. On to round two so I can take notes and brainstorm. Your practical information is priceless Roberto!

Alexandra. Exactly! It though of a few clients when I was a SEO marketer that absolutely NEED this video and advice with answers which may not even existed when I was actively in that biz 11 years ago. I've always done SOMETHING (think italics, wish it was available, I'm not shouting) online to work on growing an audience even if it took me to start YouTube to finish my AdSense account with an actual check for me, lol. I think all that previous effort ads to now, under his category, "Not for someone lazy." No quick tricks here! My YouTube certainly did better at the beginning that it should thanks to websites connecting to my content here from the beginning, let alone the 100's if not a 1000 links out there which links to my website.

I'm very interested in learning more about selling stock photography. I have a few photos that I took while traveling that may be a place to start with. When reading the FAQ for Blackbox it seemed to mostly reference video and not photographs. Am I mistaken?

Thanks Roberto for the inspiring and knowledgeable info you provide.

Great info Roberto! What do you think about Patreon? Does it fit in one of the categories are would that be separate? Thanks!

robrerto , How can I protect my course if someone steals my course and upload it on youtube ? can you talk about this point thanks u so much sir

Look into Digital Rights Management and uploading it as unlisted could help with the new Copyright Match Tool

Thank you, Roberto, for the video. Lots of good information here.

Already watched this multiple times. Thank you for this video.

I need to watch it again to know what was the most helpful part. Content which can be sold outside of YouTube hit be big as I have a lot of articles which could perform better in front of another audience better than in front of my own. Still. I need to rewatch, make notes and make plans to truly take advantage of your video Roberto. Forgive me for responding to almost everyone...it's just that your content has me THAT excited. :)

SELL STOCK PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ONLINE

What was the most helpful part?

Thanks Roberto! We can always count on you to drop some knowledge, challenge us, and share tangible ways to implement the process. You are appreciated bro!

More tangible ways. That's exactly why I needed this video!

Would you be willing to make a check list on this with the appropriate links? That would be awesome. All great info and I would love to hang it above my desk. Maybe just your cliff notes for the video.

I already am but hay I would sign up again haha

If I do it would be a good way to get people on my email list...

im try man

No more slacking or giving lame excuses for delaying success. Really would like another video where you expand in your experience in this 10 different ways of making something great. Just would like to thank you. You are giving people a way to build something, with a real approach and has a profound effect in me, because you are giving a lot of people tools to be independent. Thank you for that.

Come back to the video and click on the i on the top right if you're on a computer. I'm not sure how or if it shows up on a mobile device, but surely whatever is available under the "i" would also wisely be in the description by Roberto. You'll find he has already made videos specific to individual parts of these lists. Some is all new, but especially if we need a deeper look, I'm sure he'll be listening for requests for what to dig deeper into. I personally have to re-watch it to be sure of my strategy for what new avenues to money, which I need to make in-roads on.

Great video Robert, keep up your hard work.

Just want to say roberto, you're changing my life bud!

Thanks man! How?

Did you cut your hair? Why Brother?!

Would love to see a video 2018 specifically on how to make passive income for Graphic Designers. Also tips on how to manage, a 9 to 5, You Tube, Blog, etc. I also enjoy your motivational rants, one helped me get started and now i got my first real job using my degree. I just need motivation and a realistic plan on how to make passive income to get extra money.

Like you said, not everything will work for my particular brand, but now I know what to do. The only thing holding me back is the time to go where I need to. Sucks working 2 jobs, but also as you said, anything worthwhile won't come easy. Thanks, Roberto!

Thank you for this video. Honestly, content and delivery wise it is probably the best video you have done in the past month or two. Keep it up.

This is an amazing video Roberto! Thank you for this! It is amazingly useful!!! Will be taking action on this ❤️

Glad to hear it!!!

This came right on Time!!! I was hoping youd make a new one and here it is and even better OMG Thank you-thank you thank you-Signing up as a sponsor because you give so much information and ask for so little in return man! Thank you thank you thnk you!!!

A lot of you were asking for this! So I delivered!!!

Great suggestions! Learned something new. Baby steps. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing this, bro.

Appreciate you!

I'm thinking of creating digital illustrations of sneaker stencils and using Blackbox to distribute them. Do you think I could face some legality issues with that since certain stencils might have the brand name or logo such as the nike swoosh or Jordan jump man symbol? Great video btw!!

Avoid brand names

Great video and info thanks

The timing on this is spot on! We just created a Roadschoolin' Homeschool Planner and Travel Journal that we will be marketing to our audience next week! Did a soft launch at an RV rally outside our target market that was a flop but gave us lots of insight. It took A Lot of work but now that it's done we can start the ball rolling and learn from the experience on to the next which is an ebook/print on demand book. We're also doing a film project that will be entered into a small film festival for digital nomads that will correspond with the content of that book. We love the way you put this into reality. We've been working on YT for a year and a half and still feel like babies when it comes to building a business that links with our channel. But we love it and we know the opportunities are there for the taking. I have so many ideas...I wish I could get them out done well and fast enough to keep up with my brain...lol! Please do more on email marketing. I'd love to see more on that topic!

Yes, I totally need to generate an email list. You never know if your next great idea fits on YouTube, or if you need to reach your audience and bring them to another platform for what you created.

As always, a very helpful video Roberto, thank you.

Roberto: Thanks for the video. So many systems are pitched or perceived as get rich quick. Sometimes you just have to be blunt on some subjects.

That is exactly why I take that approach when covering this

So much good info. Thanks for sharing!

Great content as usual Roberto.

I would say recommending UpWork. I've been trying to find some way to make some money for a while now. It's been hard not having a job. But overall I've been trying to find ways to make passive income so i'm not so reliant on a conventional job.

What helped most?

Great video, as usual. I especially appreciate that you include the links to what you are talking about.

I make it a point and I’m working on more articles about these things

We now how have the info, time to do something with it! This videos was like a best-of featuring everything you probably heard but in plain English and from someone who actually has done it from the ground up. Will be taking action on this man!

Thanks Victor! Exactly what I was going for!

Good stuff Roberto! Could you make a video about creating an ebook?

Dam Bro you got my head on Fire with Ideas I cant Sit the Fk Down by Pacing thru these Ideas...Thanks a Mill for the Vid

Lol

Great info! I've been looking into this. In the very beginning stages, but this is great! Thanks Roberto!

I appreciate you, Roberto. I've grown my channel to just over 300 subs. I know Gary Vee talks about really putting out as much value as possible. Giving as much away as possible. At what point do you feel like making a course, or making something that your audience should pay for is a good move?

Roberto is proof that with enough hard work, dedication and willingness to learn you can make anything happen. I have watched Roberto's videos for 5+ years and have been working freelance for 3+ years from home thanks to his advice. I continue to learn and grow my client my base and revenue streams all because of his very honest and candid insights!

+

Appreciate it man!

Awesome content as always, and yes please make in dept videos about each system you talked about

Which one interest you the most?

This what I’m talking about man you’re definitely an inspiration and just captured my heart man thanks for keeping it real and putting it out there like that

Thanks man. What about this video connected with you?

Really good lighting on this video, Roberto! It creates a very cool and comfortable tone. I may be into audio but I like a lot of your tips on YouTube and business.

Thanks for sharing. Very informative! Erica :)

The referrals from affiliate partners. Which I am doing now. Can you also make money if you refer friends under your affiliate program and make a small % off what they sell as well?

What was the most helpful thing you got from this video?

Hey I want create a mens fashion blog and a channel for mens image consultant do you think I can make passive income doing that thank you

thank you can you send me link so i can pay for a one to one with roberto cheers pal btw I am from Ireland LOve your work mate

I think if you position it correctly and put together the right business model you can. A podcast around men’s issues like confidence and service and fatherhood could help build the brand ... you can expand beyond fashion via the podcast while drawing people into the brand

Can you do affiliate marketing on Medium? Then once you get enough traction take it to WordPress?

You could do both just disclose your links

Roberto, Please add a link to the Black Box website and/or FAQ page. Your affiliate link to the landing page doesn't explain what Black Box is about (website design fail!). I'm not going to sign up for something without knowing what it is first. Black Box looks very promising for selling b-roll footage. Thx!

That was bad design on their part... I’ll probably make a dedicated video about that for context and incorporate it into some videos I’m planning around B Roll Footage

Great tips! I would love if you could do a video based on ways to effectively promote your affiiate link regularly on Instagram/YouTube to make more sales?

I'm looking forward to watching this man! I've given the vid a like etc. already because I already know it's going to be good!

Man, Roberto, you hit so many of the things I have on my list to build into. I know none of this comes fast. it takes time, but I'm excited to get there and keep adding more diversification to my income streams. Way to share some of the specifics to help everyone out!

Glad you got something from it! What are you most excited about?

Gr8 video packed with useful information!

What was most useful?

I've been wanting to put my artwork on things mugs and t-shirts and sell these. I even made a couple mockups and showed them to my email list, asking if they would be interested, but I didn't get a response. I need to figure out how much money I can afford to risk in case things don't pan out.

DeepForest I was looking at sites that charge you to have things made with your art on them.

Sara Makes Art What money do you think you will be risking doing POD ( Print On Demand) when putting your designs on merch? Is $ 0 too much for you to risk? Because it costs zero dollars to do POD. And don't worry about not getting responses. Just upload the designs on merch and go from there.

Thanks for the updated video!!!

Thanks Bro you are helping me open my mind$ keep up the Good work!

this was sooooooooooo valuable thank you!!!!

I am just starting to build an audience with my channel. Thanks to your videos I have a good guidance. I appreciate your work, thank you!

Great video bro . Building passive income is the secret to financial freedom !

It’s just the truth!!! What stood out for you in this video?

Great Video Roberto! I will be applying these now that I took your advice from a previous video about having your own website. I am so slow to the process (which I dislike) but I am getting there. Thanks for being awesome!

_Your awesome did my first e book over 10 years ago, podcasting for past 2 years, did not know about the @ server marketing. Wow! thanks i have people suscribed to my patreon and had many @ and had no clue what to do with them. Im currently working on my second book now. bro you are amazing!!!!!!This is why i love your page __#respect_

always great videos thank you

Roberto Blake honestly I like the way you put everything together and presented everything I knew a lot of these Concepts and ideas and ways to make income we're out there but it's not really consolidated into one space and a lot of the times people that go into debt with these things they don't cover everything. and that's one of the things that I like about your channel and that's why I've been following you for what feels like forever now is that you go in depth and you consolidate things and make it easy to find by putting it all in one space. Keep up the great work I'll catch you on the next one.

Thanks, what stood out to you in this video?

Great tips roberto thanks

What was the best tip for you?

I hope this video helps me. I’ll update my post when I’m done watching.

I wonder how successful this video might become. It will definitely get a lot of views from your older video about this topic.

My main hope is that because of how detailed it is and how much better my delivery is ... that people use this as a resource and actually DO SOMETHING... it’s more accessible than they think...

Hey Roberto,I am dabbling in starting a YouTube channel I have a good starting camera canon g7x mark ii but now I'm on the hunt for a laptop capable of editing videos my current netbook has 4gb ram not enough I saw your video on editing laptops and most were out of my budget.Could you recommend a good editing laptop anywhere from or between 200$ to 400$.Im looking at many but it's hard to choose I watch all your videos keep at it man you teach us valuable information about online creating.Hope you see this!

ok thanks

I recommend saving up for something more robust

Always love it when a new video of yours pops up in the notifications thingy!

Thanks for the tip! I will be doing that!

Use the eBook to also grow your email list by linking to free Downloads... it’s super important...

This is right on point!

Roberto Blake Definitely liked the objective to build and leverage skills and knowledge base for revenue-generating goals. Too many just follow the crowd. Most helpful was the tie-in with IG, of note, given it's versatility and broad reach. Looking forward to more vids, and maybe an ebook from you, on the breakout topics from the 10-item list! ☺

Thanks! What hit home for you?

*ROBERTO BLAKE*

I do a technology channel, do you think including affiliate links for the gear I use, or some recommendations of products I recommend would be acceptable? Or would that be unethical? Also, at my size, do you think it’s too early to try selling some merch? Thank you.

Roberto Blake Thanks for the quick response. I’ll try it out. ✌️

Yes especially what you use to make your videos. It’s not unethical. Just disclose it. It’s never too early to provide a resource ppl might buy anyway...

The subtitle of this video should be called. "A million views coming soon". Great work Roberto! #likenumber45

Love the channel! Waiting for 400,000 subs!

Roberto Blake thanks for liking! I will try!

Need people sharing the videos and being active in comments and we will get there!!!

so kids if u are not active.. u are lazy... see what i did there? active.. passive.. k sorry

Thanks! What stood out for you in the video?

Roberto Blake ya man

Lol I obviously believe in both ...

Thanks

What did you get from the video?

Loving your background and new hairstyle. You're a badass bro.

LOVE THE NEW GLASSES!!! Thanks for this video as well.

The new glasses have been awesome! Thanks!

I'm at the beginning of my passive income journey. Thanks for the advice. If you created an up to date video that discusses online course, that would really help!

You are a true champion Roberto, always leading with massive value.

Robert, one, if not the best video I have watched on the earning money subject. Thanks.

Very inspiring, useful and Meaningful! Thank you

Great video! Quick question. So I have a kids channel. Does any of these apply to children's videos?

Timing on this is perfect! Have watched this 3 times and still taking notes. I will say from personal experience that Affiliate Marketing does work. But it's a process and it does take time.

Thank you for giving as much as you do.

Another great digital product is digital book renting on your actual site. Advertisement can be on the same page your book is displayed. Digital downloading can be "behind the book" information. Digital download books in the format of a workbook, maybe character background stories for fictional books.

Yo Berto! You knocked this one out of the park bro. Good stuff!

Good stuff as always. Keep it up.

Please break things down individually!!! Loved it

Fantastic video Roberto. And for those people who want money right now, well maybe work for a Temp agency. This is what I do right now it's hard work but you get payed daily.

Mr. Blake, DAM!!! You dropped so much nuggets in this video that it is not even funny. Thank you for dropping knowledge. Those who call this information a scam is either financially illiterate, just employee minded, and does not really understand the transformation of money and how it is being made today. Now I gotta go take some notes and review what you just shared. And I don't mind that you have affiliate links in there because nothing is free. Only those who are stuck in a 20th century mindset think free means free. Meanwhile those who understand how business is done in the 21st century have figured out how to charge for free. And that's some free info if you did not know that already.

I think you would do very well with audiobooks, great voice for it. nice video

Passive income is the holy grail of making money on the internet. I love it!

Great video Roberto! Thanks for all the knowledge!

Very Good! Lets break it down further, each one! Deeper! Great info!

Thanks Roberto. How to sale digital products

I’m liking this new trend of the 20 second summary at the beginning of videos

Roberto, I think I have been on this road for some time. I'm a freelance graphic designer myself. I'm captivated by great content. Selling is a skill that I will have to develop. I do like the email funnel idea, since I'm sure I can put together some kind of course from what I currently know. That said, I would love to see a video that gives your take on how an entrepreneur can put together funnels like this by him/herself, and the best platforms that move the needle, that would be awesome! btw, I already have 60 subscribers to my email list, so I'm ahead of the game!

I don't need passive income, but I like hearing your experiences.

HI Roberto. Love your content, I have been watching you for about 3 years (not all videos ;) and you helped me in starting up my freelancing graphic design business. I have a question regarding design mockups "digital product" and selling them. Do you think the market is oversaturated with this content?

Anything I could with photography? Content marketing maybe?

Great video, but would be better if you would expand on eBooks and Online Courses.

Thanks Roberto, been a fairly long time subscriber. You're giving a lot of good value there and motivation. I just noticed the video had a very blue tint - could just be me, was that intentional?

That white balance was on point. Lol

Roberto! I've been wanting to make an E-Book. Where should I start? Do you recommend putting money into some good graphics, or just getting the content together? I'm not a great writer, so should I hire someone? Let me know!
