We are revealing It Here

 You can earn money from YouTube Videos through the below explained three ways.

1. YouTube Ads- Partner –

YouTube Ads partnership is the real source for earning money from videos. BUT, they will display advertisements on your YouTube videos, only after an approval from both sides.

Two things are mandatory for this approval: The first needed thing is, you must verify your YouTube channel and the second thing is your YouTube channel must have a video with 5000 views.

Now, if you are qualified in both the above sections, apply now for YouTube Partnership. Usually, their review for new account partnerships will take around 1-2 weeks. If approved, they will request you to connect your bank account with YouTube Ads programme for sending money on a monthly basis.

YouTube Ads Types

i). Non-skippable in-stream YouTube ads

Usually, you notice Non-skippable ads in YouTube Channel. Yes, these ads are appearing only because of content creator’s interest (Not YouTube). Non-skippable ads are approximately 15 or 20 seconds in length and the ads are sold on a CPM (Cost Per Thousand), means YouTube will pay you $3-$7 for 1000 views.

ii). Skippable True View Ads

As the name implies, ‘Skip Ad’ option allows the viewers to skip the ads after 30 seconds. The advertisers will pay, only if viewers watch the first thirty seconds ad (or) full ad. In this, case we can’t predict how much you can exactly earn from YouTube-Skippable ads. But, you can get an idea from Socialblade’s YouTube Money calculator Tool.

Bruce Daisley, sales director at YouTube says that ‘True Video Ads’ in YouTube is the best source to earn higher revenue than ‘in-stream Ads.’

In the ‘In stream Ads’ there is no Skip-Ad option. In case, your viewer is not interested in Ads and found no-skippable ads option in your YouTube Video, then he will either close that page or Unsubscribe from your YouTube Channel, if that happens then it would be a loss to you.

iii) Invideo/Overlay Ads

The ad that is appears above the video control section is ‘In-Video/Overlay ads’. Advertiser will pay you, when someone click on that link.

iv)Display Ads

The ad that is appears on the top right side bar of the featured video page is called display ads. As like ‘InVideo’ You will get paid, if someone click on that link.

2. Sponsor Advertising

If you are a popular YouTuber, you can easily find Sponsors for making YouTube Videos. There are plenty of filmmakers, now a days adopting this ‘Sponsor Advertising’ method of video creation. Ryan Connolly of YouTube Channel –FilmRiot is creating videos mainly through Sponsor Advertisement.

If you are creating videos with the financial aid of someone’s ‘Sponsor Advertisement,’ then it’s your responsibility to promote your sponsor’s brand through your YouTube Videos. But keep in Mind this thing; don’t ever force your viewers for watching your sponsor’s videos.  Just follow a neutral way of storytelling, that’s it!

3. Affiliate Marketing

This method is not exactly useful for filmmakers to earn money through YouTube Videos; also you can expect a less amount through the affiliate marketing programme. Let’s explain about the affiliate marketing very simply; For an instance, you displayed a product of ‘Amazon’ in your YouTube Video, here you will get paid only when someone buys that product, and the amount sum is very  less (Probably 1-2% of the product cost).  So, we think this (Affiliate Marketing) is not a right option to make money from YouTube Videos.

The above explained are the three main ways that you can earn money from YouTube Videos: In addition to this, the Trendy YouTube videos will make you popular and that is really helpful to you, for getting a chance to work with the mainstream movies
