8 Easy and Effective Ways To Earn money from YouTube

Do you know YouTube can be a good source of earning?

Updated with 2018 new policies

Earning from YouTube is easy. You can create your own channel and keep posting your videos.

Let is reach to a certain milestone for number of subscribers and viewers, monetize it, run ads and earn money from YouTube. That’s it, so simple. Right?

Well not so easy, but not that tough too. It all depends upon your content, geography, audience target etc.

Before we proceed to know aspects of earn money from YouTube, I would like you to be aware of policy change for YouTube from January 2018.

As I have said before, internet is full of choices but knowledge is important.

Monetization Policies of YouTube as of Jan 2018

Remember monetization enabling criteria for YouTube? Yes correct, Views & Subscribers. Now there is change in this criteria, which may be going to affect any new channel on YouTube.

Now the new monetization enabling criteria is watch time. Sounds so odd, right? Let me explain this.

Suppose you have a channel and you need to enable monetization on it. So to enable monetization on your channel, requirement is 4000 hours of watch time and 1000 subscribers minimum.

This is absolutely seems like a big milestone, isn’t it? Yes it is. But let me break down this policy into a simple mathematical logic and then let me know how does it looks like.

Suppose you have a video of 10mins. Then let’s see how does it goes with 4000 hours of watch time.

One– When video watched fully

Suppose video is watched fully for 10mins. So to reach 4000 hours of watch time it needs 24,000 views (60/10 * 4000).

TwoWhen video watched half

Now in this case suppose your video is watched half which is 5mins. Then views on video needs to be 48,000 (60/5 * 4000).

Now how that sounded to you? Well, not as tough as it was seems to be on paper. Correct?

And we know we are going to reach that milestone.

Similarly we need 1000 subscribers’ minimum.

The other important thing I want to mention is that -you will be able to transfer your YouTube earning to your bank account when you have earned $100 minimum in your AdSense account.

According to a report , There are many Indian Youtubers who are earning millions, few of them are:

BB Ki Vines – Daily views more than 2 millions and earning 20+ lacks per month

Sandeep Maheswari – Daily views more than half millions and earning more than 16 lacks per month

Nisha Madhulika – Daily views more than a million and earning more than 15 lacks per month

Technical Guruji (Gaurav Chaudhary) – Daily views more than half millions and earning more than 12 lacks per month
