The first thing you have to know is that making money on youtube is not that easy. However, if you have a hobby, or you would like to help people, YouTube is a great option to cash in some extra bucks doing something you love.
Enabling monetization means that you agree you will only upload video content that you have the rights for and enable Ads on the videos. Google AdSense is the way you set up your payment information for when you actually start making money.
Now that you have monetization setup, along with Google AdSense, you’re ready to start.
A brief overview of Ads types:
You’re probably familiar with youtube Ads if you have watched YouTube videos before. There’s the bottom text based ad that is displayed at the bottom of the video, and then there is the clip that plays at the beginning of the video. You can select which of these ads your video can have, and it might make a difference depending on your audience or how much revenue your video brings in.
The estimate comes out to about $7.50 per 1,000 impressions.
The only time you make money on YouTube is when someone interacts with your ad or when it leaves an ‘impression’ on them.
This means that if someone skips an ad, or is running an ad blocker, then you don’t get paid for that view. This makes estimating the amount of views a video has and how much a user makes off of the video very challenging. It also depends if it’s a video ad at the front of your video, or just a box at the bottom of your page; this determines how many people interact with your ad and the amount of money that can be made.
There are a lot of variables that can affect just how much you can make on YouTube. Your audience has a lot to do with the type of ad that would work best. For example, if you are making short funny videos, it’s probably best to not include a 30-second ad at the beginning—a viewer might just skip right on by.
YouTube has an analytics page that you can use to see just about every measurable aspect of your video.
