anyone can make money from youtube videos



the most effective way to monetise youtube videos is from adverts. youtube's partner program allows you to run adverts on your videos in return for a cut of the ad revenue proceeds.



google you



google, the owner of youtube, gives its content makers more than 50% of the admoney from their videos.

however well youtube does, the partners are doing better

youtube register a youtube account



make sure to fill in your profile and choose a picture or logo



create and film unique content and upload to youtube



failed to make the cut? keep trying for those video views



whether you're opinionated, musically talented or have a niche idea for a video account, try to do something unique



these are the typical requirements you must have before you can start earning money



apply to join youtube's partner program



achieve over 1,000 subscribers, 1,000 views on all videos and 10,000 channel views



gain a following



if successful... promote your channel



choose to monetise your videos

you're almost there...

select the type of adverts



advert types vary. smaller ones make less money than ads that play before the video starts



get paid based on video views



successful youtube channels constantly make new videos and keep their subscribers entertained



you've started making money from your videos, but don't stop there



continue to create content and engage with your audience



youtube's partner program criteria



before you are approved to place adverts on your videos, youtube will assess your ability to reach a large enough audience.



specific requirements haven't been revealed, but your youtube account should have



1 over 1,000 subscribers

2 over 1,000 views on all your videos

3 over 10,000 channel views



you must also own worldwide distribution and commercialisation

rights (including all visuals and audio tracks).



how much can you make?



youtube keeps fairly quiet about how much monetising your account can make you.



but its thought banner adverts can earn you



pre-roll adverts, which play before the video starts, can make you



�0.53 ($0.80) to �0.66 ($1.00)

for every 1,000 views



�3.29 ($5.00) to �5.27 ($8.00)

for every 1,000 views



1,000,000 views

could make you between

�530 ($800) and �5,270 ($8,000)



the next big youtube hits



nobody knows where the next viral videos will come from.



comedy and music are themes loved by everyone, with the most common theme of late being dance.
