This works especially well for people who review products on their YouTube channels. Because there’s no risk involved for brands, there’s usually a low barrier to entry.

Popular affiliate programs include ClickBank (1% to 75% commissions, depending on what the vendors sets), and Amazon’s affiliate program (up to 10% per sale.) You can also contact brands in your niche that offer an affiliate program, which isn’t uncommon in the ecommerce industry.

How many views do you need on YouTube to make money?

The average YouTube channel can receive around $18 per 1,000 ad views, which equals around $3 to $5 per video view, according to data from Influencer Marketing Hub. 

The number of views you get doesn’t correlate to revenue earned. If your video gets thousands of views but no one watches or clicks the ad, you won’t make any money. This is because of YouTube’s criteria for billing advertisers: a viewer must click an ad or watch the video ad in full (10, 15, or 30 seconds) for you to get paid.
