Hello there! This is Daimary john and in this post, how to make money on YouTube. I will guide you through the process of making money on YouTube. As usual, making money on YouTube is always based on luck and creativity. Works get even more tougher as there are already thousands of YouTubers on the same category you planned for.
But, if you plan and focus towards your work. Nobody can ever stop you from owning a successful YouTube channel.
1. YouTube account
This is obviously the first step in your business. You are going to need a YouTube account in order to upload a video in YouTube.
After creating an account, don’t forget to add a totally attractive profile picture(DP). And how about about some cool cover photos? Just make sure to design your channel the best.
Before you upload your videos, make sure you read all the terms and agreements on YouTube.
2. Google Adsense
This is the second account that you are gonna need. Google Adsense will display ads on your YouTube videos and in return, they will pay you.
So you can expect to get paid for every “Click” and or for every “30 seconds” of ad views. After creating an account, you will get a clear idea on how advertisement actually works. Yow will get tons of options such as types of ads, shapes, sizes etc. You will have full control over your ads through google Adsense account.
3. Quality videos
By quality videos, I don’t mean to say about how expensive your videos are or how much money you’ve invested on your videos. Neither do i mean about the “Resolution” of the video. What i mean is how much interesting your videos are, how nice your scripts are, how and where you’ve filmed at, how and which music you used, lighting, camera angles and of course editing.
4. Enable monetization
So now that you have a high quality video. It’s now time to monetize your videos so that you can start making money. Before you can actually start making money, you will first have to “Enable Monetization” on your videos. Only then ads will be displayed on your videos.
Ads start before before your video, after your video and while the video is at play. While most of the ads are “Skip able”, few are not. It’s your choice which you choose.
Make sure you have at least 10,000 views in total for Monetization.
Finally, after all the hard work. You deserve to get paid. You can choose your own payment method. You can choose to get paid either by Cheque or by Wire Transfer. I would definitely advice you to go for wire transfer.
In order to get paid. Your revenue should be at least a $100. That is roughly around ₹=6,500. So if you haven’t made a $100 yet, you won’t get paid. Instead, your income will be carried over to the next month.
Remember, your this month’s income will be paid before the end of the next month.
UPDATE: YouTube no longer allows you to monetize your videos when your channel reaches 10,000 views in total.
After a recent update. Now one must have to wait for their channel to gain at least 4,000 watch hours in total.
