YouTube has become a place where people can turn their
hobbies into money-making businesses. If you want to learn more about how to
make money off of your YouTube page, you've come to the right place.
The first step toward making money on YouTube is to meet the
standards set by the site. You need at least 1,000 users and 4,000 watch hours
in the last 12 months. You can apply for the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) once
you reach these goals. YPP lets you make money from your videos in different
ways, such as through ads, channel fees, the product shelf, Super Chat, and
Most of the money made on YouTube comes from ads. When you
turn on ads for your videos, you give YouTube permission to show ads before,
during, or after your videos. You make money when people see your ads, click on
them, or interact with them.
But it's important to find a good mix between ads and how
the user feels. Too many ads can be annoying, so think about the length and
number of ads to make sure your audience has a good time watching.
Memberships to your channel give your most loyal fans a way
to give you money. Viewers can pay a monthly fee to join your channel and get
special benefits like awards, emojis, and material that is only available to
This direct support from your community not only gives you a
steady income but also makes your most loyal fans feel like they belong and
makes them more likely to stick with you.
With the goods shelf, you can show off products with your
own brand name right on your YouTube channel. To sell things like clothes,
accessories, or digital goods, you can work with an e-commerce company or use
YouTube's "merchandise shelf" feature. Putting your goods in your
videos and talking to your audience about them can help you sell more and bring
in more money.
Super Chat is another way to make money that lets watchers
pay to have their words stand out during live chats or premieres. This kind of
direct support motivates people to get involved and gives fans a way to stand
out and be heard.
As a maker, you can encourage people to take part in Super
Chat by giving special thanks or shout-outs to those who do.
YouTube Premium makes money when people sign up for it. It's
a paid service that lets you watch videos without ads, play them in the
background, and see YouTube Originals. As a producer, you get a share of the
money based on how long YouTube Premium users watch your videos. You don't have
any control over how much money you make from YouTube Premium, but it can be an
extra source of income that adds to your total earnings.
