How to Make Money on YouTube in 2022

Today’s self-created celebrities are people who have earned an audience through video content created for teaching, entertaining, reviewing and being awesome online.

YouTube might not be your main motivation for creating a channel, but the potential earnings are a pleasant surprise once they realize how many of them exist. Fortunately, there are creative ways to make money on YouTube.

Your audience might help you earn money from your YouTube channel, just like it did for some Instagram influencers or bloggers. But it’s the ability to create multiple revenue streams outside of YouTube that helps you make money from your videos.

How to make money on YouTube

1. Join the YouTube Partner Program

The first revenue stream that you’re likely to explore is ads. Whether you want to make money from YouTube by uploading videos or as a content producer, joining the YouTube Partner Program and setting up monetization is an important step.

You’ll need to agree to follow all YouTube’s monetisation policies and live in a region where the YouTube Partner Program is offered. Then you can apply for monetization once you’ve hit 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours over the past year. 

Here’s how to enable monetization on YouTube:

  1. Sign in to the YouTube account you want to monetize.
  2. Click the icon for your account in the top right corner.
  3. Click YouTube Studio.
  4. In the left menu, select Other Features > Monetization.
  5. Read and agree to the YouTuber Partner Program terms and eligibility requirements.
  6. Create a new Google AdSense account or connect an existing one to your channel. (You need an AdSense account to get paid.)
  7. Set your monetization preferences.

After that, go back to the dashboard and select the Analytics tab on the right side. From there, you’ll need to select “Revenue” from the tabs at the upper right, then scroll down to see your estimated monthly YouTube revenue.
