The idea of starting a dropshipping business is the best way to sell products without having to physically manage any stock.

The Youtube ads payment is one of the lowest rate you can get per view when you make money online as they are as low as about $1000 per one million video views, and creating one video takes professional youtubers an average of three weeks.
How much ad revenue does Youtube make? $1 per 1000 video views
This leads Youtubers to earn actually very few from the ads themselves – they make money online with affiliate programs and products placement more than Youtube ads payment which are pretty low, only a little more than 100€ per 200000 video views.
Making money from Youtube ads payment is pretty difficult, and takes a lot of hard work, talent, and investment, as you will need a lot of quality expensive material to be able to create videos that have a level good enough to attract millions of viewers, not mentioning that the competition is pretty tough on Youtube. Your best chance is finding a niche and sticking to it.
Another great solution to make money online is to start your own videocast, also called video podcast, or your own podcast, in which you record yourself talking, eventually do an audio or video montage to improve the final quality, and include different sounds or video clip, and eventually invite guest speakers to talk about subjects that might interest other people.
The platform anchor.fm among other will pay you up to $15 per thousand listeners of your podcast episodes, which can also grow to a nice source of income if you get enough followers and are consistent enough with your podcasts.
If you manage to grow your social media accounts with a substantial amount of followers, such as more than 10000 on Instagram or on YouTube, you will become what is called an Instagrammer, Instagram influencer, Youtube influencer or Youtuber, and will be able to monetize mentions of brands in your posts, stories or videos, or can get paid to review products that will be sent out by brands.
The best way to find these brands is to register to online influencer marketing platforms such as ValuedVoice.com or Glambassador.co that will help you finding brands that are willing to pay influencers to support them in their online digital marketing campaigns.
To give you a general idea, as it of course depends on your exact amount of followers, their type and relevance to the brand, and the engagement you get, you can for example sell a product review story for $500 if you have a million active followers in Western countries between the age of 20 and 30 years old – but of course, that is only a general idea.
The more active and relevant followers you get, the more the brands will be willing to pay for your compaigns.
In order to increase your revenue that way, consider digital affiliate marketing income, as getting recurring income might then allow you to earn money simply by having referring other people to work as ambassadors for the brand, and earn a small percentage of their earnings.
