I know with all of the controversy surrounding the NFL many people are boycotting the league. If you're not one of them, how'd you like to learn how to make money for watching football. This short video will give you some ideas on how to do just that.
You can make money blogging about football, creating YouTube videos about your favorite team, or you can make money creating a podcast or internet radio station about football.
Let's talk about blogging for just a second. There are literally dozens of ways for you to monetize a blog. From google ads, to banners, affiliate products, guest post and more. If you're the type of person that loves to write commentary or understand how to outsource and hire ghost writers to write articles you can make a ton of money from a sports blog.
Look at all of the content that's waiting for you. There are 32 teams in the NFL alone, let's not count college right now. Teams are split between two conferences with 4 divisions each. Perhaps you're just an expert on a single division, a single team, a single position, a single player. You can write endless commentary about any of those subjects.
You can of course do the same thing with YouTube videos. Build up your viewership and monetize YouTube in the same way. Of course you'll need to get familiar with the YouTube guidelines for monetization but build a following nonetheless. Then embed the videos into your blog and increase the traffic to your blog and views to your videos at the same time.
If you're using a particular format for your YouTube videos where you give it structure with specific segment lengths etc, you can then strip the audio form there, clean it up and create a podcast and re-purpose the content. Don't you see ESPN and other networks doing the same thing?
The same show content that is shown on TV is later re-purposed into an audio version for podcast purposes. You can do the very same thing.
Is there a learning curve, absolutely! Is it worth spending some time learning these different techniques and strategies, absolutely. You're going to watch the game anyway right? Why not stream get paid from it?
And, just so that we're clear this goes for all sports. Even popular TV shows. There are people cashing in on blogs and YouTube channels that follow "Love & Hip Hop," "Empire," "Scandal," you name it, if it's popular someone is getting paid from it that's NOT official associated with the show.
Of course if you need help you can join Monetize My Life Academy for step by step direction on turning your passions into income streams.
