If you try to generate money on YouTube, you’ll quickly discover that getting started is hard, and there’s no assurance it will pay off. So, if you’re searching for a fast buck, you should think about other options, especially those that don’t require formal employment. You might be possible to make money on YouTube if you’re already a frequent video maker and get prepared to put in the extra effort.

But, here a few ways you could use. Let’s see.

Directly profiting from YouTube:

Enroll to be a YouTube partner to make money straight from the site. Though you must first satisfy the following criteria to become a partner: You’ll need at least 4000 channel hours and must follow the site’s advertising restrictions.

The more videos you have, the more likely you can hit the 4000-hours mark. To get there, someone with 200 videos only needs around 50 views for each video, and someone with ten films only needs around 1,000 views per video. Of course this is just an estimate, what matters is also video length and your retention. It pays to put time and effort into creating and producing high-quality, entertaining films since they are more likely to be seen.

Connect to Adsense

You may connect your channel to Google AdSense, the company’s advertising system, once you’ve got certified as a youtube partner. Advertisers bid for video space using AdSense based on characteristics like your viewership, video topic, and related keywords.

You’ll get paid according to the number of impressions your videos receive, which refers to how many times someone views or clicks on an ad. However, because advertisements do not appear every time someone watches a video, the number of visions does not always equate to money in the bank!

Thinking Beyond The YouTube Normal Way

Beyond YouTube AdSense, YouTube Red, and Super Chat, there are various additional ways to make money with a YouTube channel, but generating money with these other options remains on having a dedicated, engaged audience.

Companies interested in your channel’s audience could sponsor your videos or give you product placement arrangements in exchange for a shout-out if you use product placement and video sponsorship. Most likely, payments will be handled on a per-sale basis or in commission tiers.

Take a peek at your new revenue streams.

Each monetization channel has its own set of requirements for qualification. Consider the following example:

To earn ad money

You must be a minimum of 18 years old and develop content to appeal to advertisers. Generally said, the less contentious your videos are, the more comfortable YouTube marketers will be placing adverts on them, and the more money you’ll make.

If a YouTube Premium subscriber sees your video, you will receive a percentage of their monthly money.

Channel membership:

To provide channel subscriptions to your customers, you must be at least 18 years old and have over 30,000 subscribers.

Merchandising shelf:

You must be a minimum of 18 years old and have at least 10,000 followers to sell items through YouTube’s merchandise shelf.

Super Chat payments:

To allow your fans to pay to have their remarks highlighted in your live chats during your live streams, you must be at least 18 years old.

Buy views that make money:

Of course, this will maybe not make you rich because you are paying to make money. But, if you like to see your analytics showing some nice income, well go for it! I tried LenosTube’s monetized views and it was pleasant to earn a bit of money.

And last but not least, to become rich on YouTube don’t forget the most important thing: being patient!
