Have you ever wondered how YouTubers make money? Does YouTube pay them? Do companies pay them for brand ads? Here is an article to clear your doubts about this matter.
- Put ads in your videos
Viewers will probably watch at least 30 seconds of your video. As long as they do not use Ad Block, this will make you money. YouTubers will get paid a certain amount of money ranging between one to five dollars but recently, that amount has decreased. YouTube gets the revenue generated from ads and then splits that profit with you.
- Get Your Videos Sponsored
There are companies who pay YouTubers to make videos about their products in exchange for large sums of money. These are usually offered to the bigger channels, but smaller channels can get a chance too. This is the way YouTubers make the most money. You’re required by law to say that the video is an ad in the description, but it will make you a lot more money than when you put normal ads.
- Use Patreon
Patreon lets content makers receive donations from fans, and offer the fans rewards in return. The site takes 10 percent of the donations and the rest is what you get. Most YouTubers make more through Patreon than they do from their paychecks.
If you really like the videos and want to support the makers, then you can pay an amount like a dollar per video, or a dollar per month. Some YouTubers set up a specific feed for that, where those paying viewers can get access to exclusive content.
- Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a good revenue source for YouTubers even though it is not as popular as in blogging. YouTubers review the products or make videos concerning the products and ask viewers to make the purchase using the link in the description. This link is usually an affiliate link, which give the makers a fair commission for each successful leading or sale. Most affiliate marketers use YouTube presence and blogging to make money by this way.
- YouTube also pays some of the YouTubers
If you are selected to make content for the subscription-based YouTube Premium, you will definitely get paid by YouTube. This is a premium subscription model streaming platform with the cost of $12 per month. Just like Netflix has done it before, YouTube has worked with (and paid) many top content creators like Poppy, PewDiePie, and the Paul brothers to come up with YouTube Originals.
The amount of money you earn depends on:
- The number of views you get for each video and the number of subcribers you have: you’ll get $1.5 for each 1,000 views.
- The number of viewers using Ad Block.
- The number of sponsored videos you make.
Things you need to get paid:
- About 1,000 subscribers
- Don’t work with shady companies
- A Patreon account to get donation from your fans
