Monetizing your YouTube videos is super easy. It is an opportunity open to everyone who dreams of making real cash online. YouTube receives millions of unique visitors every month. Allowing placement of ads on your videos, therefore, which is simply monetizing them, would give you as much cash as you always dream for.
How exactly does YouTube video monetization work?
If you’ve not yet set your foot into YouTube’s monetization program, you might not have a slight idea how the program works, right?
There’s no need to panic, though. Following is a brief explanation on how the program works:
We assume you already have a YouTube account/channel where you share your videos. You start by enabling the monetization feature on your channel. After this, all your videos will be submitted for approval.
NOTE: For your videos to be approved for monetization, they must meet the worldwide commercial rights as outlined in YouTube’s Copyright Centre. For example, if your video features a song that you don’t have a copyright to, it won’t be eligible for monetization.
Also, the videos must abide by YouTube’s Community Guidelines and Terms of Services.
Once the videos are approved, YouTube now has permission to post ads near or inside your videos. When people view your videos, they’ll encounter these ads. This way, you earn revenue after a specified number of views.
It’s that simple!
It’s also important to note that you need to link your YouTube account/channel with Google Adsense for you to be able to earn the revenue generated from the Ads placed on your videos.
All the above information would be useless if we fail to explain to you how you can get started in monetizing your YouTube videos, right?
