How to Make Money on Youtube

Youtube isn’t profitable yet,but that doesn’t mean you can’t make money on the video sharing site.

To make life easier for the average YouTube user, we’ve created a step-by-step guide on what you need to do and begin making money on YouTube.

Many people who use YouTube have seen the YouTube partners who make money from their videos. Many themselves wish to do so as well. Here is how to get started

Create youtube account

Create your account or use your existing one. Add keywords to help people find your channel. Also select a type of account that specifies more of what you do. (i.e – Director accounts are for short film makers and such)

Your user name can also work for, or against you. If its short, easy to remember and original people that see your videos will be more apt to remember you. However if you are using an existing account, just stay with it. It doesn’t help if you keep changing accounts.

Make an awesome video and Upload your video to YouTube

To get started, begin adding content. Try to upload content that is high quality, and isn’t super long. Also try to upload regularly and stay consistent with your uploads.

Even if your content isn’t great at first, keep at it. Practice makes perfect. Try to make each video better than the last. You will often learn as you go.

Improve your content by either using a better camera or trying better editing software or techniques. Also try to improve the way things are filmed. Use a tripod, have a friend help you or light your scenes better. It all helps for a better end product which in turn helps you get a better audience.

By uploading regularly you can help hold an audience. People are more likely to subscribe if you add content on a more scheduled basis and are consistent in adding content often.

Gain an audience.

Keep uploading content and try to get people hooked. Send your video out on Twitter and Facebook. Share it with people. Distribute it elsewhere on the internet. Subscribers are essential to becoming a partner. (While you can get paid by having viral videos, this is extremely rare).

Apply through YouTube’s Partner Program page

Becoming a Partner involves work. Often a lot of it. While anyone can apply, It is best to have over 500 subscribers, upload good content regularly, and have either a viral video or a decent sized audience. YouTube is looking for channels in which they can sell advertising on and make money. They are also looking for channels that won’t get them sued. Try to eliminate copyrighted material on your channel and in your videos.

Start the application process

Read through the YouTube Partnership Program tutorial, and double-check that you haven’t violated ANY of their rules.

NOTE: If YouTube rejects your application…

” … you will not be able to apply to the program again for 2 months.”

Create a Google AdSense Account

You can setup Google Adsense for free at From here you click the “sign up now” button to begin. You must be 18 years or older. IF you are younger than that, you will need an adult to help you. It may be disappointing but this is something you cant fake. You need either PayPal or a bank account and a valid mailing address as well as other information so they can verify who you are and who to send the money to. You only gain money per ad click and a smaller amount per view but it adds up over time. This is why having an audience is key.

Be patient

YouTube could take up to 2 weeks to review your video

Start making money!

Once you’re approved, you can turn on overlay ads that pop up on the bottom of a video, banner ads that appear next to the video, and/or pre-roll ads that play in front of your video.

Go back to Step 1

If YouTube rejected your application, you obviously didn’t follow one of these steps.

You have another two months before you can apply again; so, get back to working on your videos
Market your videos

Don’t put your videos just on YouTube! Start a blog, make a website or post them on other video or social media sites. The more views it gets, the better. By sharing the link or embedding the video on the internet, you are increasing the chance of it getting noticed and of you making money.
