1. Set up and create your YouTube channel
2. Add content
3. Get an audience
- There are usually haters, so you have to ignore them. If you want to thrive, you have to be confident.
- Keep uploading content and try to get people hooked. Send your videos to Twitter and Facebook. Share this with people. Distribute it elsewhere on the Internet. Subscribers are required to become partners.
- Interact with your audience by answering comments and creating videos directly related to audience comments and questions. Connecting with your community will bring more members to that community. A good way to do this is a very simple, external shout.
4. Monetize your video
- Go to www.youtube.com and click on “My Channel” on the webpage.
- Click on the link named “Video Manager” on the top bar.
- Click on the channel and enable monetization.
5. Meet the requirements
In the last 12 months, you need at least 4,000 watch hours and 1000 subscribers to start making money.
- You can demonetize the video as it uploads by clicking on the monetization tab and checking the “With demonetization ads” box.
- To demonetize a video after it has been uploaded, open your video manager and click on the “$” sign next to the video you want to demonetize. Check the “Monetize with Ads” box.
6. Set up Google AdSense
You can set up Google AdSense on an AdSense website for free. Click on the Sign Up Now button to create your account. You must be 18 years or older to create your 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 that AdSense can verify who you are and to whom to send money. You only get a small amount per ad click and per view, but it increases over time. This is why it is important to have an audience.
7. Check your analytics
Once you have some videos online, monetized, and watched, you can see an analysis on how they are performing. Click the Analytics option in your channel menu. Here you can see estimated revenue, ad performance, video views, demographics, and more. Use these tools to see how your content is resonating with your audience. If you are finding that you are not attracting your users, then you can change your content or your marketing.
8. Market your videos elsewhere
Don’t just put your videos on YouTube! Start a blog, create a website, or post them on other videos or social media sites. The more views it gets, the better it will be. By sharing the link or embedding the video on the Internet, you are increasing the chances of it being viewed.
9. Become a YouTube Partner.
YouTube Partners are YouTube members who have monetized the video 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 a lot of community support and tips.
You can apply for a YouTube partnership at any time through the YouTube Partner page. To gain access to the most powerful companion programs, you will need 15,000 cumulative clock hours for your channel in the last 90 days.
