When getting started with a YouTube channel it is important to remember the key components of what it takes to be successful and make a profit on Youtube. It is cruical that you develop an engaged and devoted community of viewers, in addition to having a steady stream of great content. Any profitable YouTuber would say the same thing, that you must first grow an audience and make consistent videos that you enjoy to make and your viewers love to watch. Only after all of that can you begin to think about monetizing. Now that you have gained your following and found your niche, it is time to set your channel up to earn money.

Whether your goal is to earn back a few dollars of the money it cost to create a video, or you are trying to create a sustainable revenue stream for yourself, YouTube gives you the opportunity to make money with your successful brand. There are a series of steps one must take once they’ve accumulated their following to begin to monetize. The first step is to simply enable your channel for monetization. With your channel enabled for monetization, it is time to connect your YouTube channel to an AdSense account in order to earn money. It would be advantageous for you to at this point take a moment to get to know the different kinds of videos you can monetize, as well as the different ad formats.

Once you have become familiar with that you may choose to monetize with ads by choosing the video you’d like to have ads on, as well as what the ads on your video will be. It is possible that instead of monetizing all videos, the creator may decide to choose only a few existing videos, like the popular ones with high watch times. In addition, it is possible to maximize opportunities if you automatically monetize all future uploads, saving you time while earning you money.  

There are many different ways you can make money with your channel, however we will only be focusing on the most used method, ads. Now that you understand how to enable monetization, you will be able to have ads run on your videos. How AdSense works is YouTube connects your channel to paying advertisers, which frees the content creator to focus entirely on their channel. You do not get paid by the advertisers, but instead you are paid by a small fraction of each viewer that watches the ad. Another way of earning money is through YouTube Red subscribers. YouTube Red members are not subjected to ads as they pay a recurring fee that allows for that, in addition to more special benefits. Instead the amount you earn from YouTube Red is calculated based on how long those members spend on watching your content.
