Running A Youtube Channel - 10 Ways Developers Make Money Working from Home - E01

I recently switched from working at a company to freelancing and had a lot of my friends asking me: how's that going.

I'll tell you what I told everyone: It's going great, and I am really surprised I succeeded in this. The minimum salary I've got till now is $500/day.

You have to be good in order to switch to freelancing and get to those numbers, but is not that hard, so don't overthink, just start.

Because I successfully managed to convert 2 of my friend from 8–5 jobs to freelancing, and more of my friends want me to help them, I decided to create a video series about that later this year. It will be free on YouTube, so be sure you Subscribe here.

YouTube is a great platform where you can make money by making videos on different topics or about things that you know or are passionate about.

If you're a web developer and know how to educate others on how to build websites, then it's time for you to start earning money by running a Youtube Channel.

The process is simple:
Create interesting content for the viewers.
Post your videos regularly & share them with your audience on social media.
Once, you'll start getting love from the audience in the shape of subscribers, likes & views. You can then monetize your channel from google AdSense, bring sponsors & do affiliate marketing.

In this video series, I share the best ways and how to increase your money income as a web developer while working from home.
