If you are the proud owner of a Youtube channel where you regularly post content for your business, it would be interesting to take it to the next level by monetizing your channel.
So let’s take a closer look of your options for generating money through your Youtube channel.
AdSense is the first fundamental step towards increasing YouTube revenues. It is an ad programme operated by Google that allows advertisers to display advertisements before, during, or after a video on YouTube. In return, 68 per cent of the ad rate paid by the advertiser is given to the content producer. There are also a variety of variables to consider while using AdSense.
Patreon was launched in the early 2010s as a viable subscription-based network for creators to get monthly support from their fans. The audience is rewarded with tiered incentives, in exchange for that support. A viewer who gives $1 may gain early access to new content , for example, while $50 provides a monthly special chat with the founder. Channel memberships allow subscribers to pay a monthly fee granting them access to members-only badges, emojis, and perks. Similar to Patreon, you can build a single membership level, or give multiple levels (as long as the rewards reflect the increase in membership price).
3) Amazon and store affiliate schemes
With Amazon’s affiliate program, you direct viewers to the site to buy items you have recommended or talked about. If a viewer buys the item, you receive a commission. However, this is entirely dependent on the type of content you create. You want to make sure your outgoing links are neatly presented, and the featured items are presented in order of appearance. As it’s not a sponsored segment, you don’t need to give a call to action to Amazon as a company. Instead, politely let your viewers know that items are in the description (or comment feed).
The pinnacle of earning money from YouTube has to be a brand partnership. So, what can you do to catch a brand’s attention? Well, ultimately, it comes down to one thing — your numbers. And that’s because a sponsorship, partnership, or whatever you want to call it is primarily one thing — an advertisement. Therefore, brands look to partner with creator who have a sizable voice. However, don’t be disconcerted if you have a small subscriber base. Ultimately, those with hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of subscribers are going to cost more to work with, and sometimes that falls outside of a brand’s advertising budget.
