Have you ever heard that you can make money from YouTube? Read on!
Don’t just like watching movies on YouTube, strive to earn money on it – because you can do it.
In recent days, the number of YouTubers in Africa is rapidly rising, and it’s lovely. But the tragic part of the story is that more than 50% of them are doing it wrong. And the majority of them are not earning as they are supposed to.
Why Are People Doing It Wrong Or Earning Too Low?
With YouTube, anyone (including you) can earn meaningful income, which can dramatically lead to financial freedom.
However, you need to have a lot of viewers and subscribers before you can earn cool money from Google AdSense (if you opted-in for it).
As Dale Carnegie, the author of the evergreen book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, sternly admonished, “Remember that the people you are talking to are hundred times more interested in themselves and their wants and problems than they are in you and your problems,” you inevitably need to provide what people will love to watch and not what you like to publish.
How Can You Make Money From YouTube?
This article, according to my research and my gained help from successful YouTubers across the universe, will outline 13 profitable niches (topics) that can, and will surely help you to make money from YouTube.
We are in the 21st century when people prefer to watch sports events and activities over their daily, primary activities.
You may choose to publish soccer review, boxing shows, or just any sports activity that has massive followers.
2. Game Review
All over the world, game lovers love to watch any graphical content that can best depict their favourite games. Hence, they stay glued to any YouTube channel that richly makes publication on game reviews.
A nice example is cited below.
3. 2D & 3D Animation
If Disney is in million, they surely aren’t using any magic. What they use is simply the power of cartoon animation to mesmerize viewers, which in turn brings them advertisers.
You can start your Disney-like channel, where people can watch a variety of 2D and 3D animations. Your viewers will surely yearn for your new content. For this, you may need to learn cartoon design or hire a good designer that will strive to constantly produce stunning stories.

As a YouTuber, you don’t actually have to be a comedian. There are tons of comedy skits on the internet that can easily be re-edited and put on your channel provided you’ve settled the copyright issue with the owners.
7. Financial Guide
Who doesn’t want money? Who doesn’t want to achieve financial freedom? Everyone wants to brighten their financial boredom. Hence they go extra miles searching for whatever seems to promise the betterment.
You don’t need to be rich to give financial guides or publish financial videos. So, HOW? Of course, you can compile a series of financial advice from rich influencers and make little commentary on them for your nice publication.
8. Health Tips

Relationships are thirsty of clear guide and lasting solution to their deteriorating status. Both young and old partners want to stably improve their matrimonial union. As a result; they crave for all channels that will throw them in the process of their heart-wish.
