You’ve probably heard stories about regular people earning money on YouTube and thought, “Hey, I can do this too!”. While earning thousands of dollars probably isn’t realistic, you can start earning money quickly, especially if you have a strong subscriber base. Follow this guide to get your videos monetized and start earning revenue off of those YouTube ads.
- Create your account or use your existing one. Add keywords to help people find your channel. You can add keywords by navigating to the Advanced section of your Channel Settings. Make sure that your keywords are relevant to your content.
- Your user name can also work for or against you. If it’s short, easy to remember, and original, people will be more apt to remember you. However if you are using an existing account, you can always change your username by editing it on your Google+ account.
Add content. Try to upload content that is high quality, and isn’t super long. (This option can vary depending on what type of content you decide to upload) Also try to upload regularly and stay consistent with your uploads.
- Even if your content isn’t great at first, keep at it. Practice makes perfect. Try to make each video better than the last. You will often learn as you go.
- Improve your content by either using a better camera or trying better editing software or techniques. Also try to improve the way things are filmed. Use a tripod, have a friend help you or light your scenes better. It all helps for a better end product which in turn helps you get a better audience.
- By uploading regularly you can help hold an audience. People are more likely to subscribe if you add content on regular schedule, and maintain that schedule as much as possible.
- Make sure to tag your videos with key words that describe the content, as well as an eye-catching description. These will help drive people to your video from YouTube searches.
Gain an audience. Building an audience is key to increasing your monetization. You need people to watch your ads in order to make any money off of them. There is no one secret to getting more subscribers, just make the best content that you can and they will come to you.
- Keep uploading content and try to get people hooked. Send your video out on Twitter and Facebook. Share it with people. Distribute it elsewhere on the internet. Subscribers are essential to becoming a partner.
- Interact with your viewers by responding to comments and making occasional videos directly related to viewer comments and questions. Connecting with your community will bring more members into that community.
Monetize your videos. In order to start earning money on your videos, you’ll need to enable monetization. This means you are allowing YouTube to place ads in your video. This also means that you acknowledge that there is no copyrighted material in your video.
- You can monetize a video as it uploads by clicking the Monetization tab and checking the “Monetize with Ads” box.
- To monetize a video after it has been uploaded, open your Video Manager and click the “$” sign next to the video that you want to monetize. Check the “Monetize with Ads” box.
Setup Google AdSense. You can setup Google AdSense for free at the AdSense website. Click the Sign Up Now button to begin creating your account. You must be 18 years or older to create your own account. If you are younger than that, you will need an adult to help you.
- You need either PayPal or a bank account and a valid mailing address as well as other information so AdSense can verify who you are and who to send the money to. You only gain money per ad click and a smaller amount per view but it adds up over time. This is why having an audience is key.
Check your analytics. Once you have some videos online, monetized, and being viewed, you can check out the analytics on them to see how they are performing. Click the Analytics option in your Channel menu. Here you can view estimated earnings, ad performance, video views, demographics and more.
Market your videos elsewhere. Don’t put your videos just on YouTube! Start a blog, make a website or post them on other video or social media sites. The more views it gets, the better. By sharing the link or embedding the video on the internet, you are increasing the chance of it getting noticed.
- Use these tools to see how your content is resonating with your audience. You can change your content or your marketing if you’re finding that you aren’t attracting the users that you want to.
Become a YouTube partner. YouTube Partners are YouTube members who have monetized videos with a large number of viewers. Partners gain access to more content creation tools, and can win prizes for the number of viewers they have. Partners also get access to much more community support and tips.
- You can apply for YouTube partnership at any time through the YouTube Partner page. In order to gain access to the most powerful Partner programs, you need to have 15,000 cumulative watch hours for your channel over the last 90 days.
Now one obvious question may aeries in your mind ,”How much I can earn through You Tube?” .I’d like to answer this simply follow :
1 to 5 dollars per 1000 views, for the average beginning channel. The biggest, most successful, channels might achieve $ 5 to 7.5 dollars per 1000 views.
Suppose , One have 100 videos getting 50000 views per month then he can get 50$ to 500$ per month on average.Of course,if you can make your video(s) viral on internet by skill or fate you may earn thousands of dollars also.Here,I share one case study ,
Charlie Bit My Finger is a 2007 Internet viral video famous for formerly being the most viewed YouTube video. As of February 2015, the video ranks as the Fourth most viewed video on the site, with over 810 million views and counting. The clip features two English brothers, aged three and one. In the video, the younger brother, Charlie, bites the finger of his older brother, Harry. The boys’ father uploaded the video online in May 2007.
Howard Davies-Carr, the father of the boys, said the video was “simply an attempt to capture the boys growing up.” It’s the kind of off-guard clip any family would treasure privately. And in the past, that’s precisely what it would have remained.
Except that Mr Davies-Carr’s decision to upload the 57-second film onto YouTube not only propelled the children into the international spotlight, but also earned the family more than £100,000 (over $150,000).
In addition to being one of the most viewed videos on YouTube, it was also the “most favorite” and the second “most discussed” video on the website in the United Kingdom.
In a May 2009 report compiled by Visible Measures, which measures video hits across 150 video-sharing websites, “Charlie Bit My Finger” was the thirteenth most viewed viral video on the Internet.
As of February 2015, the official YouTube channel for the “Charlie Bit My Finger” video has over 297,222 subscribers.
Here, I suggest few ideas for video but ultimately its depend upon your own creativity only.
1. Online tutoring, or one-by-one sessions
2. Making videos to sell education material
3. Make a video to explain some topics of books.
4. Video of events
5. Writing e-books for Colleges/Universities
6. Crete documentary video
7. Catch any moments – you like ,may be its become viral like the “Charlie Bit My Finger” video
