YouTube is a powerful resource to grow and monetise your content. With the rise of short-form videos, creators can leverage YouTube’s Shorts feature to open up new revenue streams. In this post we’ll explore ways you can monetise your YouTube Shorts: becoming a part of the YouTube Partner Program, setting up an AdSense account, growing channel memberships and taking advantage of SuperChat.
YouTube User and Creator Statistics
YouTube is one of the most popular websites in the world with over 2 billion monthly active users and 90% internet coverage among 18-34 year olds. Viewers can spend up to 40 minutes on YouTube through a single mobile session. There are now more than 30 million active channels, and that number has increased by an impressive 40% Year on Year. Every 1,000 views brings in $6.95 for talented creators who have established themselves as reliable sources of great content – making it well worth your time to get involved.
Qualifying for YouTube’s Partner Program
If you want to monetise your creativity, YouTube’s Partner Program has certain eligibility requirements. To be considered for the program, creators need a minimum of 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours over the past 12 months. It’s also important to note that those who are accepted must adhere strictly with YouTube’s community guidelines as well as its terms of service.
Setting up an AdSense Account
To start monetising your Shorts, you’ll need to enable monetisation on your YouTube account and link it to an approved AdSense account. AdSense is a program that allows creators to earn money from ads that run on their videos. Once monetisation is enabled, you can start earning money from ads that run on your Shorts. The amount you earn will depend on a variety of factors, including the number of views and engagement on your Shorts.
Generating Revenue through Channel Memberships
YouTube creators can capitalise on Channel Memberships to make money and build a loyal fan base. By offering badges, emojis, or exclusive content – you will create an engaging channel for your dedicated followers while generating recurring revenue.
With Super Chat, you can supercharge your Shorts revenue and engage viewers at the same time. Allowing viewers to pay for their messages in chat during a live stream lets them show support while also earning you money – as a creator, you’ll receive part of the proceeds made from these chats. This is an easy way to make money from content.
YouTube’s new Shorts monetisation process equips influencers and creators with more opportunities to generate income from their content. Give it a try, stick to YouTube’s Partner Program requirements as well as community guidelines, so you can leverage the different revenue streams available on this platform. From ads, Super Chat, channel memberships – you name it – creators will be able to gain a steady income derived from short-form videos.
