8 Smart Strategies to Boost YouTube Revenue

Did you know that 80% of YouTube’s audience doesn’t speak English? Plus, even many English speakers prefer content in their native language. Translating your content can massively expand your reach and luckily there is far more than one translation strategy you can leverage.

1. Translating YouTube Metadata

Starting with a super simple but effective strategy, you can tap into the potential of YouTube Metadata translation. Your metadata (titles, descriptions, tags) is what tells YouTube what your video is about. Translating this info into multiple languages can:

  • Increase Revenue: By targeting countries with high RPMs, you boost your views and earnings.
  • Enhance Engagement: Add languages from countries where your content is popular to get more interactions.
  • Boost Views: More languages mean more viewers and subscribers, creating a growth loop!

2. Multi-Language Dubbing

A great way to boost your revenue is by using YouTube’s multi-audio tracks feature, which they launched last year. This feature lets you add multiple audio tracks to a single video, so viewers can choose their preferred language. Latest development of AI makes it super easy to localize and dub your content, connecting with a global audience, but there are cases when AI is not the best fit for a channel.

For videos that rely heavily on emotional delivery, using voice actors can add that extra human touch. By jumping on the multi-language dubbing train, you can expand your audience, increase engagement, and give your revenue a nice boost. Learn more about translating and dubbing your content with both AI or voice actors here.

3. Full Localization Strategy

Full content localization is all about taking your videos to the next level, making sure they truly resonate with audiences from different parts of the world. It's more than just translating words; it's about fully adapting your content, from the way it sounds with dubbing, to the way it reads with subtitles, creating entirely localized channels. This approach ensures that your videos aren't just understood but that they feel like they were originally made for viewers in each new market. This kind of deep connection can really boost viewer engagement and loyalty.

Take Brave Wilderness, for example. This Guinness World Record-holding channel with over 21 million subscribers has fully embraced localization with the help of AIR Media Tech. By crafting separate channels with professional dubbing and translated subtitles, they're tapping into new markets and opening up fresh opportunities to earn more — from targeted ads to regional sponsorships.

4. Brand Deals with Pin.top

Landing brand deals could be easier than you think. Brands are always on the lookout for fresh content and new audiences that align with their style and values. Here’s how you can start connecting with them today.

Firstly, consider using platforms specifically designed to bridge the gap between influencers and brands. FameBit, now part of YouTube’s BrandConnect, is a great example. These platforms act as a matchmaker, helping you find companies eager to partner with creators.

Ways to secure better brand deals faster

But don't just rely on third-party platforms; your own outreach can be incredibly effective as well. Start by crafting a solid media kit. Think of it as your digital resume — it should include your channel stats, audience demographics, and the best snippets from your portfolio. To really make your media kit pop, use tools like pin.top by AIR Media-Tech.

5. Maximize Memberships

YouTube Memberships are a goldmine if used right. With 100K subscribers, even a 1% membership rate at $49/month brings in $49K monthly. But setting Memberships up isn’t just about activating a feature in Creator Studio; it’s about creating a value-packed experience for your subscribers. You’ll need to figure out what perks and bonuses your audience would love, from custom emojis and badges to members-only videos and behind-the-scenes content. 

Advanced strategies to make YouTube Membership work

Now, promoting your memberships is key to success. Don’t just rely on viewers noticing the 'join' button—shout about it in your videos, describe the benefits in your video descriptions, and maybe even launch a special intro video to hook their interest. Several tactics combined bring really impressive results. You can take a look at some real life examples here.

The more you engage with your audience and make them feel part of something special, the more likely they are to sign up. And here’s where we at AIR Media Tech come in — we can help set your membership strategy right, from design to expert tips that maximize your results, just text us here to learn more.

6. Embrace 24/7 Streaming

Leveraging continuous, 24/7 live streaming of your pre-recorded videos on YouTube can seriously boost your traffic without you needing to be glued to the camera.

Here’s why it’s so powerful: YouTube tends to give live streams a higher ranking compared to regular videos. This means your streams are more likely to show up in search results and get noticed by new viewers, anytime they're looking. That translates to more views, more subscribers, and a big bump in watch time. To set up continuous streams, or even 4-8 of them in parallel, you can use tools like Gyre or contact us, so we can handle this task for you.

Tools for running 24/7 live streams across different platforms simultaneously

On the financial side, live streams are also attractive to advertisers. Ads on live streams can command higher rates. Plus, streaming is a fantastic strategy to promote your regular uploads. It draws in viewers who might be new to your channel or those who haven’t caught up with your latest content, giving all your videos a chance to shine.

So, if you're looking to grow your channel and boost your earnings, 24/7 streaming could be just what you need. For a deeper dive into how to set this up and make the most of your content, check out the detailed guide here

Step-by-step instruction for high-performing affiliate marketing on YouTube

To really maximize your earnings, it’s crucial to produce high-quality videos that hook your audience — think clear, well-lit, and well-edited content that solves problems or answers questions. How-to guides, ‘best of’ lists, unboxing, or product reviews are perfect for this.
