So, you created your first videos and uploaded them on YouTube. You wrote a script for them, edited them and you are proud of your work. You’ve set up your channel and it’s slowly getting more and more subscribers. You start to think about monetizing your channel. After all, everyone is doing it. Ads are popping up everywhere on YouTube and there’s obviously a lot of money to make.
Luckily, thanks to YouTube’s relationship with Google (it’s a subsidiary), monetizing videos is easier than ever. You’ll get a lot of powerful tools that can help you set up a campaign and you’ll know exactly what happens in your videos. If all is okay with your account, you’ll have ads up and running in a matter of hours. But before running ads and making money with your YouTube account, there are some things you’ll need to consider.
You’ll have to become a YouTube Partner
Becoming a YouTube Partner is the first step you’ll have to make if you want to make money on the platform. In doing so, you basically agree to allow Google to place and manage ads in your videos. When they are clicked, or other type of interaction, you’ll get paid. That’s the essential part, but here is a step-by-step guide:
Your earnings will get funneled to your Adsense account, where you can monitor your income, your average click-through rates and many other statistics. Adsense will pay you after you reach $100 in your account, so you will have to be a little patient before the ball starts rolling.
Making money on YouTube is feasible and a lot of people are doing it. Obviously, the people raking in millions are the exception to the rule, but there’s plenty of room for new players on this amazing video platform. You’ll just have to like what you are doing, have fun and create high quality content, and you are all set.
