How To Make Money On Youtube

Earn money from adverts on Youtube

Anyone in Ireland can make money on YouTube through the YouTube Partner Program, which allows you to monetize your videos with adverts.

It is possible for almost anyone to earn money on Youtube. All you really need is a smartphone.

In 2022, YouTube’s advertising revenue amounted to 29.24 billion U.S. dollars.
About 55% of that is shared with video creators. So that equates to around $15 billion dollars a year being paid out to video creators.

Youtube places advertisements on videos automatically – you don’t have to do any coding or anything like that. Google owns Youtube and they place adverts based on a combination of the subject matter of the video and also on any personal data they might hold on the person viewing the video.

The amount you earn will depend on a variety of factors, such as the number of views your videos get, the types of ads that are displayed, and the ad payment rates in your geographic location.

How To Join the YouTube Partner Program:

To be eligible for monetization of your videos on Youtube, you’ll need to apply and be accepted into the YouTube Partner Program.

To be accepted – you’ll need to have at least 1,000 subscribers AND 4,000 hours of watch time on your YouTube channel in the past 12 months.

It can be difficult to get past that 4000 hours of views in the past 12 months (Which is equal to 240,000 minutes.)
You might have had a lot of views maybe on a video 13 months ago – but the count only goes back 12 months. You might think you are getting close to the 4000-hour target – only for it to drop back down again as time goes on.

Enable monetization on your videos:

Once you have been accepted into the YouTube partner program, you need to enable monetization on your videos. This means that ads will appear on your videos and you’ll earn a portion of the ad revenue.

In order to earn money from ads, your videos will need to meet certain criteria, such as being advertiser-friendly and not infringing on other people’s copyrights. More details here.

The key to success on YouTube is creating high-quality content that resonates with your audience and attracts advertisers. By focusing on your niche, creating engaging content, and building a loyal following, you can increase your earnings through ads and build a successful YouTube channel.

In addition to revenue from adverts, some people monetize a YouTube channel through sponsorships, However, ad revenue is typically the primary source of income for most YouTube creators.

It’s important to note that building a successful YouTube channel takes time and effort. You’ll need to consistently create high-quality content that engages your audience, and you may need to invest in equipment and marketing to grow your channel. However, with dedication and hard work, it’s possible to earn a significant income from putting videos on YouTube.

How Much Can You Earn on YouTube?

Advertising revenue is typically measured in an amount per thousand views. This is known as CPM.
This amount can vary from day to day and by the location of the viewer. Basically, the price per view will be dependent on how much advertisers are willing to pay to display an advertisment.
If it is a video about DIY – then you might get DIY shops or Amazon etc wanting to show ads with the video. If there are more advertisers wanting to show adverts – then the price per view will go up.

The display of adverts is a highly automated bidding process . Certain subject matter will attract higher-paying adverts. So you’ll have some advertisers paying only 0.50 per 1,000 video views, while others may pay $10 or more.

Keep in mind that you may be liable to pay taxes on any income earned from your monetized videos on YouTube.
