If you have been wondering how on earth people make money on YouTube, then you are in the right place, but the first thing I want you to know, is that YouTube is not a fast money making scheme, you have to do the hard work. Nothing good comes easy.
Currently, money is mainly made on YouTube through YouTube videos monetization. YouTube monetization is the way in which YouTube partners earn money through the displaying of ads on their videos, you have probably watched a lot of YouTube videos. Those short video that plays before the main video starts they are called ads. Companies, businesses or even individuals pays YouTube to display those ads either to reach more customers or for any other purpose. The first thing to know is that YouTube pays for the videos based on CPM, which means Cost Per Thousand impressions. This indicates that YouTubers are paid based on every 1,000 views they accumulate.
The income depends on several factors, for example the advertising format chosen, the location of the viewers, the resources a company invests in it’s YouTube campaign. But generally, 1,000 views are worth a few dollars, if you can make your videos trend on YouTube in this case. The views would not stop at a few thousand, but would reach a considerable total. However, keep in mind that your video contents must be 100% original and must never break monetization rules, meaning that you can’t download or copy someone else video and publish, you must create you own content, to prevent YouTube from freezing your account.
