How to Make Money with Your YouTube Channel

Between the multitude of free social platforms and incredibly affordable hardware we have at our fingertips today, there is no better time to thrive as a content creator. One even hears of mythical tales where seemingly normal people making millions of dollars posting videos on platforms like YouTube even before they leave school.

By the end of this article, you will discover that you, too, can have your fair share of the Social Influencer pie. On top of that, you will also have a clearer picture on how to get there. But before I set you up to fly, I have to first smack you down to the ground. If you’re aiming to game the system and hope to make money by buying Followers, stealing viral posts and reposting other people’s content, may I suggest you save your effort and find another hobby instead.

Creating Your Strategy

In order to create and maintain a long term and sustainable YouTube Channel, you have to look past basic arithmetic and ask valuable questions like What is my niche, How do I create value for my viewers in the long run, and How do I help my potential sponsors achieve their KPIs?

Find a niche that sits nicely in the Goldilocks Zone, not too many that you become too general, and not too few that nobody is your niche. Don’t worry about needing to be too good at your specialty. There are plenty of muggles out there you can help with your limited knowledge. The fact that you’re reading this article proves my point.

Remember: if they ain’t coming back for more original content, you don’t have a money-making channel. Continue reading “How to Make Money with Your YouTube Channel”

Can China have an Intel of their Own?

The Chinese government has been pushing for homegrown semiconductors, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. After decades of failure, today may just be the right time for some of these state-sponsored companies to take-off.

The American or specifically, the Israel monopoly of semiconductor technologies and businesses have been on-going for ages, with little to no challenger from the likes of Asia or other regions. Jack Ma saw this profound lapse in technology gap between the region giants, and has been urging that countries with the resources and technology such as China, Japan and even Korea should start investing their countries resources into the development of their very own semiconductor technology; to get around America’s grip on the global chip market.

A Lucrative Market

Qualcomm Inc managed to topped Wall Street’s forecast in its recent quarterly profit. To put into perspective just how much money chips are making money for Qualcomm, how about fiscal 2017 revenues that stands at $22.3 billion? With global semiconductor sales revenue for 2017 hitting some $419 billion in greenback, as according to the latest Gartner report.

Take a step back and now look at who owns the biggest pie from this multi-billion-dollar money printing industry? American companies of course. The China and Japan semiconductor producers do not even stand a chance against these giants.

“America was the early mover and China, we need a lot of things. 100 percent of the market for chips is controlled by Americans,” Jack Ma addressing students and entrepreneurs at Tokyo’s Waseda University. “And suddenly if they stop selling — what that means, you understand. And that’s why China, Japan, and any country, you need core technologies.” Continue reading “Can China have an Intel of their Own?”

How To Be an Effective Social Media Influencer

Social Media Influencer Marketing is a very tricky industry for brands and Social Influencers. It used to be an effective avenue for brands to create awareness and even get some sales, but lately it hasn’t been working. This is because Social Influencers have been destroying the industry as they forget what brands want. Instead, they just focus on the number game required to get endorsements and collaboration deals.

That said, Social Media Influencer Marketing still works, but now brands have to put in more effort to identify which influencers are worth the investment and which are just pretenders. To be a proper Social Media Influencer, one has to look at the big picture and ask real questions like How will this help the brand reach their KPI or How do I influencer more people to buy this product? If you, like the other 6 billion other people in the world, dream of becoming a successful Social Media Influencer, here are some good tips to follow:

Find a Niche and Stick To It

Marketers always say that “If everyone is your target Audience, then you have no Target Audience.” Start by figuring out which topic you want to talk about. Anything from Food, Travelling, Books, Football and Cars will work. Continue reading “How To Be an Effective Social Media Influencer”
