One of the fastest ways to make money from your YouTube channel is to get interesting projects from brands.
The challenge for a YouTube creator like you and me is to find such deals. This is where influencer marketing platforms come into the picture.
ViralBao is a new entrant into this industry. In this guide, I will share how to get started with his new platform. ViralBao is an all-in-one platform where you can start promoting your YouTube channel, start earnings through affiliate marketing, get tie-ups with top brands and monetize using your own YouTube channel app.
The idea of ViralBao seems interesting and the app looks solid. Therefore, I decided to give it a try and share my experience with you in this article.
Let’s get onto it.
Head over to ViralBao and enter your email and the YouTube channel name. The system automatically fetches and suggests the YouTube channels from where you have to select yours.
On the next page, you need to give ViralBao access to your YouTube channel to fetch stats and everything else to help you monetize your YouTube channel.
Now, click on the activation link in your email to get started. On the first page, you need to set up a password for your account. (A reminder for you to use a password manager like Dashlane).
The platform gives you plenty of options:
Every option offers different features. For example:
- Promote: Lets you promote your YouTube channel or other videos to get more likes, views or subscribers.
- Affiliate Marketing: Lets you get affiliate deals. I believe its more like a CPA network such as AdCombo.
- Influencer sponsorship: This lets you get deals from brands. In my opinion, it’s a real money maker for any YouTuber.
- App Maker: Lets you create an Android and iOS app for your YouTube channel.
Let’s explore the YouTube Channel app maker.
This one lets you create an Android and iOS app for your YouTube channel. A great way to start marketing your YouTube channel on the popular iOS app store as well as the Android store.
Before you get too excited, let me state the fact that the app creator is not free. However, it’s reasonably priced and for a serious YouTuber, it’s definitely worth investing.
You can see the pricing below:
For a regular plan its about $99.99/year for iOS and Android version which is pretty decent. However, I found their app publishing price to be very high. You can publish yourself on Android play store for $25 but the price here is $99. The pricing for iOS app publishing is $99 which is alright.
However, I could not find the difference between Standard and Advanced publishing. You may have to explore that on your own and write to me if you find something.
Promote (Your Channel or videos) free $25 credits
The Promote section lets you promote your channel to get more subscribers, views or likes. They have the Free and Pro options. For Pro, they offer $25 credits which is worth signing up for.
I created a campaign using the credits straight away. I was hoping that they don’t ask for my credit card details. And guess what, they didn’t.
Tip: Create your first campaign wisely as you can use free credits of $25 for that only. For the next campaign, you need to provide your credit card details, something that should be done only once you have tested the platform.
Tips and tricks section:
This section was rather disappointing as I was hoping to find some useful tips. Instead, it lacked actual tips and turned out to be a promotion of their platform. I hope they work on this bit in the coming days.
I also signed up for the Affiliate Marketing and Influencer sponsorship part. They make the payment directly to your bank account or via PayPal.
I’m yet to get new offers and once I have more to share about ViralBao, I will update this article. This is just an introduction and by no means a detailed review of ViralBao.
For now, go ahead and test out the platform. Make use of the $25 promotion for your channel. You never know when you start getting some serious influencer marketing deals to monetize your YouTube channel in a big way.
