Can you earn money from YouTube?
I bet that many times you saw people calling themselves “YouTubers”. And these people are driving the newest cars, having the newest phones, traveling to top destinations. Is it all a show or YouTube can really make you money? Let’s see.
First of all, to get any money from YouTube, you need to have a certain number of views. On average, you need around 20,000 views to make your first $100. And this is when YouTube starts paying you the money. This is when you are recognized as relevant. YouTubers are paid from 0.10$ – 0.30$ per view. So, making money from YouTube is not as easy as it seems.
One way to make money from YouTube is to become a YouTube partner and make money from the ads. This is a hard task since you need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months. Once you fulfill this, you can join YouTube Partner Program. As a member of this program, you are earning money from sales. This is the best way to earn money with YouTube because it pays out the most.
Another way is to sell products or merchandise. This way is a bit more demanding. Statistics are showing that a person with 11,000 subscribers can sell around 6 pieces of merchandise every month. That is around $70 of profit monthly.
You can also partner with some brands and become an affiliate. In order to do that, you need to have an already well-established account, and to be an Influencer. After you have your subscribers’ audience, you can find out what could you promote to them, and partner with this specific brand. You can potentially earn $500 – $1000 simply by promoting a brand.
As you understood so far, in order to get paid you need views. You need subscribers. Most popular YouTubers didn’t just get billions of views by posting content. They bought them. The solution for any channel to start growing is to buy views. This is nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing to hide. This is just an investment in the business. And the more you invest, the more you can gain. Like you need to invest in the equipment to start construction, you need to invest in views to start a successful channel.
Many companies are offering you views. How to choose the right one?
You need to choose a company that is offering you the most for the lowest price. The best solution is a company that can provide you services for other social media as well because you might decide to link your YouTube channel to your Instagram or Facebook profile. And also, the company has to provide you constant support, since you are establishing a business from the ground.
After you attract enough attention on YouTube to be considered an Influencer, your payments will go through AdSense. You will be paid monthly, usually on the 21st of every month.
