Judd Albring: Making $20 000 per Month Through Youtube and Email Marketing While Staying at Home

In today's digital age, it's becoming increasingly common for individuals to make a living through online platforms. Judd Albring, a 50-year-old YouTuber based in Chicago, is a prime example of this. Judd has managed to build a successful online business, generating $20 000 per month through his YouTube channel and newsletter, all from the comfort of his own home.

What's more impressive is that Judd only spends around 10 hours a week creating and posting content, with the help of freelancers. His content is monetized through affiliate links, allowing him to earn commissions for products purchased through his referrals.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at Judd's journey and how he was able to build a lucrative online business from scratch.

“Now, between my ad revenue and my earnings as an affiliate marketer, I'm making more than $20,000 a month, and I work only eight to 10 hours a week.”

Let's dive into this article...

Getting Started
At the beginning of his career, Judd held several jobs in sales but could never keep a job for long because of his drinking. At 35, he got sober, but finding work was still hard because he had to explain time gaps in his work history, so he started to drive for Uber and clean windows on weekends to make ends meet.

In 2017, he started to research how to make money online and teach himself digital marketing because he wanted to make extra money from home while taking care of his boys. His wife is a teacher, so he became a stay-at-home dad because it made more sense financially than paying a full-time sitter. From his research, he decided to start a YouTube channel.

Judd posted his first YouTube video in 2017, but he wasn't sure how to monetize it. On his channel, he shares tips for working a remote job, work-from-home opportunities, and affiliate-marketing advice to teach people how to make money online from anywhere. His goal, in the beginning, was to make just an extra $1,000 a month, but in his first year, he made only $0.13 from a book he recommended to someone.

Growing and Monetizing the Channel

In the second year, Judd's channel started making a few dollars a day from Google AdSense as his subscriber count grew. The channel finally took off in September 2021 after one of his videos went viral because everyone was at home in pandemic lockdowns and many were looking for ways to make money remotely. People mainly found him through searches, but some found him on Facebook. That video hit 6.2 million views, and he now has 329 000 subscribers on YouTube.

Judd started making several hundred dollars a day from the YouTube Partner Program and more from the products recommended in his videos.

On YouTube, he became an affiliate for software and online-training companies that helped people start and grow online businesses. He also became an affiliate marketer for job sites like FlexJobs.

Recently, Judd started doing review videos for the Amazon Influencer Program and built that business to bring in more than $2,000 a month in just 60 days by making one-minute review videos — and he doesn't even show his face. The people who watch his videos and buy his recommended products are not always subscribers or followers.

“I know channels with 1 million subscribers that are struggling to make money, and I know coaches with 10,000 subscriptions and very niche audiences who make $1 million a year.” Judd says.

Content Creation Approach

It's all about creating quality content — not quantity — and getting it in front of the right people. Judd repurposes his videos on YouTube Shorts, Facebook Reels, Instagram Reels, and TikTok, which brings in additional revenue. He has 101,000 followers on Instagram, 122,000 on Facebook, and 69,000 on TikTok. He makes one video and edits it on his phone, then uploads the same video to each of his accounts separately.

His titles and hashtags change depending on the platform. For example, the hashtag #workfromhome appears 13.1 billion times on TikTok but 19 million times on Facebook. He learned how to adjust his titles by simply following others in his niche — hashtags are all about research. Writing a good title has come to him with practice. Video titles that he has seen success with are related to working from home, how to work remotely, and how to make money online.

Hiring and Treating Social Media as a Business

Stop worrying about who got married or divorced, or whose kid just got accepted to whatever college. Judd says that once he stopped worrying about what other people were posting and what people thought of him, everything took off.

While starting, he followed and learned everything he could from those who had what he wanted, like the marketer and entrepreneur Russell Brunson, a cofounder of ClickFunnels, which he uses to run his entire business, and read his book "Expert Secrets." He also follows Pat Flynn of the "Smart Passive Income Podcast."

Two years ago, Judd started outsourcing 80% of his work to freelancers from websites like Upwork. He has people all over the world who help him run his business: a video editor in Turkey, a virtual assistant in Argentina, and a Google Ads specialist in Poland. He also just hired someone to start repurposing all his YouTube videos and turn them into 60-second vertical videos for TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook. The Google Ads specialist earns a flat rate to create ads, and his Upwork freelancers are paid hourly.

Making a Faceless YouTube Video With Over 10 000 Views

“You have to be patient and consistent. I'm uploading content every day and on all platforms. YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook all work on algorithms, and they need time to learn about your content so they can show it to the right people. Don't put all your eggs in one basket by using only one social-media platform.” Judd explains

Life as an Online Entrepreneur

In the beginning, Judd says that he would work late and get up at 4 or 5 a.m. to edit videos so he could get his sons out of the house on time.

Now that he has outsourced a lot of his responsibilities and his two kids are older, he had time to take three vacations last year. He could work while they traveled, but some days or weeks, he didn't do anything because he had set it up in such a way that it was mostly passive income. His hours are really spent just researching video ideas online and recording short-form content.

Advise from Judd

I highly recommend building your own email list. Facebook or any other social platform can shut you down anytime it wants. They owe you nothing, but you own your email list, and you can market to your audience at any time.

I started my email list in 2017, and I use the "Seinfeld sequence," which is all about telling your story, adding value, and being real. I learned this from Brunson. What doesn't work in emails is trying to sell in each one. Nobody wants to be sold. It's all about building the know, like, and trust factor.

I use ActiveCampaign to schedule and send all my emails. In my emails, which go out to thousands of people each month, with new subscribers daily, I share my expert insights and recommend different products or trainings to help people start and grow a business online. My affiliate links are in the email, and when a reader clicks and buys from a link in my email, I get paid a commission.


Even at 50 years old, Judd Albring has managed to build a successful online business, generating $20 000 per month through his YouTube channel and newsletter, all from the comfort of his own home. With the help of freelancers, he creates content for Youtube and other social media channels and monetizes it with ads.
