Of course, you will need parental permission to start earning revenue.

The monetization strategy you choose depends on the size of your audience. For instance, if you don't have a large audience you will not want to monetize ads.

Brand Deals

Brand deals are similar to paid sponsorships, but the only difference is your listing products for companies that have huge advertising budgets. If you get your page up and running with a huge following, there are companies that will pay you to mention or post their brand. There are influencers that earn $25,000 just for posting a product one time. Keep in mind, if you land a brand deal, the sky's the limit.

Monetizing Ads

Many business, influencers and entrepreneurs display advertisements on their content. For years content creators have displayed ads on their platforms to generate revenue. However, many newbies try to use this strategy as their main source of income. This can be frustrating because it takes thousands of views to earn money monetizing ads. Therefore, you should use more strategies to increase your profits.

Offer Paid Sponsorships.

How does sponsorships work? The content creators post individuals ads or mention their brands once or a few times during the film. There are times when the content creator even tests the product. The customers pay either a flat rate or pay for views.

Accept Donations

A nice way users can show their appreciation is by donating. The best way to do this is by showing users you make a difference. As mentioned above, you must create valuable content to be successful.

Affiliate Products

One of my favorites ways to make money online is by selling affiliate products. There are several reasons why these products are on my list of favorites. The main reason is these products are already popular, all you have to do is promote and watch the revenue rise. A few other reasons are; they’re free to promote, easy to market and associates earn generous commissions.

Selling Merchandise

The downside to selling merchandise is typically you’ll need a large following to earn big profits. On the flip side you can earn 100% profits because the product is yours. That is if you are selling your own products of course.

Selling Digital Products

Right now is the best time to promote any type of digital content you have on the web. If you have eBooks, apps, games or any other digital products you can list these items on your product description. If you list a link in the description, it would be wise to only promote products that are related to the topic. If you list links that are not related to the topic, you can find your video being penalized by search engines.

How Does a YouTuber Get Paid

Monetizing ads is the main way publishers make money. Currently a publisher must have 1000 subscribers to become eligible to monetize ads. However, over the last year several publishers are relying on alternative strategies to make money due to overcrowding. Once people started to realize that they can start generate a paycheck on YT, thousands on people became influencers.

Earning from a paid sponsorship is the second major way a YouTuber can get paid. Many content creators are beginning to implement this strategy to increase revenue.

Content creators used to generate generous sums of revenue, making money from ads years ago. Nonetheless, ad revenue have decreased over time. Consequently, daily more content creators are trying to find additional opportunities to get paid.

Monetizing Ads

Let's start at the beginning to see where the money comes and where the money goes. So we can discover How Does a YouTuber Get Paid. For instance, say you're a business owner selling skin care products. You've recently started your business enterprise. It cost you roughly $2000 to finance your enterprise.

Now that your business is up and running, you are looking to make a few sales and begin capitalizing to see a return. Therefore, you choose to become an influencer and market your products with hopes of driving traffic to your business.

The product you have is unique, one of a kind. There's not a company in the marketplace that carries merchandise like yours. Your products are one of a kind and will sell itself. All you need to do is get customers to your site.

Therefore, you're willing to pay for advertisements. You sign up for a Google ad-words account and start a marketing campaign. For ad placements, you choose YT to show your ads.

Pay Per Click (PPC) or Pay Per Impression (PPE)

Finally, you're up and running with ads being advertised on the #1 social video site online. Your advertisement appears on a monetizing video. The viewer watching the video has been looking for skin care products for the last 3 months. This viewer likes the ad and decides to click through and purchase the product.

To sum it up, the advertiser pays Google to advertise their product or brand. The advertiser has a few options, they can choose to pay for clicks or pay for impressions. For instance, you pay $50 for 10,000 impressions or $50 for 200 click troughs.

Then google pays the content creator either for clicks or per impression. Please note, these are not real or actual numbers, just examples. Therefore, the money comes from advertisers. This is one strategy content creators used to earn.

This is how it works; a publisher will allow advertisers to display advertisements on their videos while viewers are watching. As previously mentioned, some advertisers pay for impressions and others pay per click.

When the video is played typically you will see a 5 - 15 second advertising campaign. This advertisement will be shown in one of three places, the beginning of the video, the middle of the video or the end of the video.

Earning Money From Paid Sponsorships

Paid sponsorships are starting to dominate many platforms. Many creators are currently relying on this promotional strategy as a source of revenue. The reason why this method is becoming so dominant is due to the fact, there are many ways to charge customers to promote their ad.

One method to earn from paid promotions is mentioning a product separately from your video. You can charge customers to mention their product or brand at the beginning, middle or end of your video.

Another method is when a video host posts products via text throughout the entire video. This way the audience can view the contact information throughout the video. A website or blog URL is typically the contact information that customers choose to post.

Demonstrating the customer's product is a popular promotional strategy that is commonly used by YouTubers. The video host will physically demonstrate how the product works, then give positive reviews about the product.
