Have you been considering how you might make money off creating videos? As a dietitian, adding video creation to your set of skills can be a valuable side hustle or full-time career.
If you’re interested in learning how your nutrition business can add income streams from video, read on! Plus there's a link to sign up for my video courses waitlist at the end.
Here are 7 income streams video creation can enable you to generate:
1 Making Money Off Video with Google Adsense…
By growing a Youtube channel and reaching the level for monetization you can earn money through Google Adsense or other ad programs when users view ads played on your videos.
Have a podcast? Why not put it on YouTube? It’s just one more way people can find your content and learn about you.
Don’t want to have to film it? Don’t! Create a graphic using Canva with your headshot (and your co-host or guest) and have that be the visual. You can add more elements to the video if you like or turn your podcast notes into a slide show.
2 Making Money Off Video With Sponsorships, Endorsements, Brand Ambassador…
As you grow your brand, your business, and your following on social media, Youtube, etc this network can be leveraged when you pitch to companies.
Pitch to companies that align with your mission and values and get paid to create videos about them or mention the brand/product/service in your video.
3 Making Money Off Video With Educational courses…
If you’re working in private practice and teach some things over and over, you can automate some of that education by creating an online course for your clients to work through in between 1:1 sessions.
This can be a stand alone course or a value-add to your existing packages.
Private practice isn’t the only example either. If you have expertise in a specific niche, you can teach to other dietitians or professionals.
Creating educational courses is a great way to build scaleable income.
4 Making Money Off Video With Freelancing…
There are TONS of freelancing opportunities for dietitians out there including video editing, podcast editing, content creation, and more.
Not to mention all the side interests you have outside of nutrition that you can find fulfillment doing through freelancing opportunities.
Check out this article on different ways dietitians can make money being creative.
5 Making Money Off Video With Subscriptions...
You could structure a video-centered income stream via some form of subscription service such as through Patreon, Kajabi, Twitch, YouTube, Wix, etc.
Provide exclusive access to a specific type of content you produce for a monthly subscription fee and attract a niche audience within your niche.
6 Making Money Off Video By Creating Stock Footage...
If you’re really into the videography side of things, you might enjoy creating and uploading stock video footage to sites such as Getty, iStock, Shutterstock, Canva, or Vimeo, just to name a few.
There are lots of stock photo sites you can upload to and earn a certain rate as a contributor when your video footage is used.
7 Leveraging your video creation skills in a job interview...
Video creation is just another tool in your tool box and can demonstrate to your potential employer that you have creative and organizational skills, and interest in helping with creative projects.
Not everyone knows how create and edit videos and this may be a valuable asset to companies looking to hire you.
