What is ASMR eating?
ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) evokes sensations in your body, such as tingling, with visuals and sounds. In ASMR eating videos or ASMR mukbang videos, eaters satisfy viewers with their eating sounds.
They also make sounds of chewing, crunching, gulping, and food visuals. These videos attract thousands of viewers obsessed with them in a short time. This will be a cool job if you have a soundproof room, microphone, camera, good food, and a flaring appetite.
Now let’s dig into the most important part – earning money from it!
Ways to earn money with ASMR eating videos
Let’s consider the best platforms to monetize ASMR eating videos.
Facebook, the most popular social media platform with 2.74 billion monthly active users, enables ads in your videos. Your page should have a minimum of 10,000 followers and 600,000 minutes viewed in the last 60 days. You should also have at least 5 regular or live videos on the page.
YouTube is the world’s second most popular platform, with around 122 million daily users. Once your channel completes 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours, you are eligible to play ads in your videos. This is through the YouTube Partner Program. What if you want to get revenue from YouTube shorts? Then you need to complete 1000 subscribers plus 10 million total views for shorts within 90 days.
It might take longer to complete those direct monetization rules, right? Don’t worry, and you can still earn money. Try branded content collaborations, sponsored ads, affiliate marketing, and selling products and merch through these platforms. Also, try growing new accounts and selling them once they reach a decent number of views and followers.
