What are the possible ways to make money with YouTube?
Content producers can monetize their videos in the following ways:
- Advertisements: displayed on the page itself, superimposed on the video or pop-up advertising or not before the video starts or during its display;
- Super Chat: a feature through which channel followers pay to have the message sent prominently during a live exhibition. The time in evidence depends on the amount invested by the contractor;
- Official products: publicize links to their official product sites or crowdfunding on videos, as long as they are approved by YouTube;
- Channel clubs: new name for sponsorships made by followers. Club members make monthly payments and, in return, earn public stamps, emojis and access to content creator benefits offered periodically.
What do I need to be part of the YouTube Partner Program?
According to the platform, to be part of the program, it is necessary to meet the qualification requirements and verify that the content complies with the policies. For a channel to be considered fit, it needs to have over a thousand subscribers and at least four thousand hours of viewing in the last 12 months. This information can be checked using the YouTube Analytics tool. In addition, YPP must be available in the channel owner's country.

In order for the type of content to fall under the Partnership Program Policies, it must not violate the platform's community guidelines. Therefore, as many videos as thumbnails and titles, external links, tags, among others, cannot contain the following behaviors: nudity or sexual content, harmful or dangerous content, incitement content to hate, explicit or violent content, harassment and virtual bullying , spam, misleading metadata and scams, threats, copyright, privacy, impersonation and child safety.
It is also necessary for the channel owner to have rights over the content that will be activated to generate revenue. This includes rights to all audio and video elements, explains the service's help page.
I fulfill all the requirements and now?
If the user meets all YPP requirements, he must follow some steps to finally register. The first of them access your Criao Stadium to read and accept the terms of the YouTube Partner Program. Then, create a new AdSense account or link an existing one to the channel. Then, define what types of ads to include in the publications, then enable automatic revenue generation for all existing and future videos.
After this process, the content producer needs to wait for his channel to reach what the service calls the program's minimum limit, that is, that it has 1,000 subscribers and at least 4,000 hours of viewing in the last 12 months. After reaching this limit, YouTube will analyze the channel's activity to verify that it complies with the Partner Program and Spam policies, the Terms of Service and community guidelines.
If the application is approved, the person already starts to participate in the program. If it is refused, it is recommended that the user review the content shared by him, because he probably did not follow any of the terms of the requirements. After 30 days, he can apply again as a partner.
How can I monetize with Super Chat?

To activate the tool, it is necessary to be part of the YouTube Partner Program with at least a thousand subscriptions and that the channel manager is over 18 years old. The platform highlights that, as with other services, messages must be in compliance with community guidelines, as well as obey local government legislation and regulations. If a Super Chat is moderated and removed for violating our policies, YouTube will donate our share of the proceeds to charity, he explains.

In order to link a product store or crowdfunding project on your videos, YouTuber needs to participate in the Partnership Program and that the sales or crowndfunding website is part of the list approved by the service.
Can I create my own Club?
The requirements for the creation of a Channel Club are slightly more complex than for the aforementioned modalities. To do this, it is necessary to participate in the Partnership Program, to have more than 30 thousand subscribers and to be of legal age. In addition, you must agree to and follow our terms and policies (including the applicable commercial product Addendum) and not have any notice that violates copyright or Community Guidelines.
Payment will be made when the channel yields the minimum amount established by the platform. If it does not reach a month, the amount will be accumulated over the following months, until it finally reaches the necessary level. For example, if your June earnings did not reach the payment threshold, they will be accrued and combined with July earnings. If your new balance exceeds the payment threshold, we will issue a single payment for the combined earnings for June and July at the end of August, explains the website.
Among the forms of payment, electronic funds transfer (EFT), EFT through the Euro Payments Area (SEPA), electronic transfers, checks and Quick Cash from Western Union are available .
