How To Make Money on YouTube

There are numerous ways to make money on YouTube. Some of them require you to be a part of the YouTube Partner Program, requiring 1000 subscribers and over 4000 watch hours in the last year. 

Although partners will make more money, there are numerous ways for non-partnered users to monetize. Here are 11 ways to monetize your YouTube Channel and earn money with online video! 

To start earning money with display ads, you need to have a YouTube partnership and set up a Google AdSense account. With these, you can start earning ad revenue with the pre-roll and mid-roll ads that appear on YouTube videos.

YouTube Partners can monetize their channels by encouraging viewers and subscribers to use super chat and super stickers. Like the bits and cheers available on Twitch, these super chats and stickers allow viewers to pay small amounts of money to get their comments highlighted or support a channel in small ways.

The significant advantage of using YouTube over Twitch is that YouTube gives creators more revenue. Twitch splits the subscription fee 50/50 with the creator, while YouTube only takes 30% of the revenue, giving the creator 70%. 

Get Viewers to Join Your Channel

YouTube splits the revenue earned from premium subscribers between itself and its partners. Each partner receives a share based upon the amount of time premium subscribers spend watching the individual channel.
