monetization video headlines

My YouTube Video on Monetization

by Alessandro Perta

When I started this whole “passive income” thing, my projects were doomed to fail.


Because they were not in a profitable niche – I didn’t think about how to properly monetize them!

I would take me weeks before realizing the content and websites I created were never going to generate any income.

monetization video headlines

Big mistake.

Before writing a single word or recording a single video, it’s crucial that you know how you will monetize your project!

(Unless it’s only for fun and you don’t mind wasting time, but I assume that you’re here for business purposes).

I’m planning to write an article about this and record the related YouTube video.

So you don’t waste time and money on a niche (or angle) that will never make you any money.

And when I do, I want to have a headline ready for it (specifically the YouTube video).

Here are my 100 attempts.

How It Felt

I was on FIRE (the first 20 headlines were pretty bad, though).

I hit tiny plateau around headline #80, but rapidly got back on track

There are a lot of winners here…

Specifically #87 through #95. They have that strong “catchy template” vibe going on, but I think they’re the best of the bunch.

I’ll just have to write the article first because I don’t know if I’m gonna push the monetization side, or the profitable niche side.

I guess you’ll see when it’s out 🙂

What I Learned

  • YouTube videos can get away with more clickbaity titles (specifically if you’re targeting the algorithm, and not the search engine)
  • Shorter headlines feel more impactful (even if you can “convince more” with longer ones)
  • I’m always amazed at how I can find 100 headlines for the exact same article – I’ll never say I have no idea ever again!
