What is Youtube Monetization?
Monetization means ‘earn money’; YouTube Monetisation means to earn money from the youtube videos uploaded by you by enabling ads on them. When your youtube channel becomes popular and you start getting more views, it is advantageous for companies and businesses and they pay you to let them add their ads between your videos. So basically, the businesses and the companies pay youtube for the advertising and then youtube pays the channel owner some part of that income or profits. This is how YouTube monetization works.
How does YouTube Monetisation work?
Youtube has some guidelines, rules, and standards for monetization. To start monetizing your youtube channel one needs to follow some basic steps.
First, you need to verify your YouTube account. Once you do that you would be able to take the benefits of youtube live and also upload videos of more than 15 minutes. It is a very basic step towards starting.
Secondly, one has to join the YouTube Partner Program. Once you join this youtube partner program you will be eligible to earn money. There are some requirements and guidelines and once one meets those, one is eligible to start getting money for your videos.
Following are the Youtube partner program policies:
- One should have 1000 subscribers on your youtube channel.
- You need to have 4000 hours of watch time over the last 12 months.
- You should have a linked and signed up Adsense account.
Once one meets these requirements and enables monetization on your videos, one can start earning Adsense revenue. This depends on the number of viewers. The more the viewers the more the money you earn.
Youtube makes sure that you are posting relevant and original content. The content should be advertiser-friendly.
