10 Ways To Make Money On YouTube

1. Shorts Fund

The YouTube Shorts Funds was launched on Tuesday with the promise of $100M funds to be distributed over 2021-2022. Every month, YouTube will reach out to thousands of eligible creators to claim a payment. From the fund, creators can make anywhere from $100 to $10,000 based on viewership and engagement on their Shorts. The Shorts Fund is the first step to the company’s journey to build a monetisation model for Shorts on YouTube and it is not limited to just creators in YPP. Check out all the details here.

2. Ads

Ads have been at the core of creators’ revenue streams, and continue to be the main way that creators can earn money on YouTube. Creators receive the majority of the revenue generated from ads on YouTube.

3. YouTube Premium

YouTube Premium is a paid subscription option that enables members to enjoy ad-free content, background playback, downloads, and premium access to the YouTube Music app. The majority of subscription revenue goes to YouTube partners.

4. Channel memberships

With channel memberships, creators can offer exclusive perks and content to viewers who join their channel as monthly paying members at prices set by the creator.

5. Super Chat

Super Chat is a highlighted message in the chat stream that stands out from the crowd to get even more of their favorite creator’s attention for fans watching live streams and premieres.

6. Super Thanks

Now viewers can give thanks and appreciation on uploaded videos as well through Super Thanks. As an added bonus, fans will get a distinct, colorful comment to highlight the purchase, which creators can respond to.

7. Super Stickers

Another way followers can show support during live streams and Premieres is with Super Stickers, which allows fans to purchase a fun sticker that stands out.

8. Merchandise

The merch shelf allows channels to showcase their official branded merchandise right on their watch page on YouTube. Creators can choose from 30 different retailers globally.
