How to make money on YouTube

Have you ever wondered how to make money on YouTube? Or you are looking for ways to earn money from YouTube. These common questions are on the lips of every YouTuber and prospective YouTuber. Don’t worry, all your questions will be answered in this article.

One misconception about YouTube, which is so common is that YouTube pays their content created per pageview like the Google AdSense program; this has made content creators look at keywords with large traffic. They believe once the traffic increases their earnings increases as well.
YouTube pays according to the model you choose.

  • Pay Per Click (PPC): In this category, YouTube pays its content creator on the number of clicks on the ads per thousand. This means that YouTube will pay you when people click on your ads.

For example, a YouTuber with 10,000 views per month and a 1% click-through rate, and cost per click of $0.50 will get $18 after Youtube collects their 45%.
Another Youtuber with 5000 views per month with a click-through rate of 1% and the cost per click of $25 will receive $687.5

  • Pay Per View model (PPV): Ppv is based on the advertiser paying a base amount of money per view for a thousand views.

You get money when the viewer watches the ads for 30 seconds or less than 30 seconds.
If you choose this model, you won’t get paid when the viewer clicks on your ads but when they watch them.

The model you choose to monetize your videos depends on your choice, and you are sure to make money from YouTube.

Type Of Youtube Ads

The advertiser is willing to pay content creators on YouTube high amount of money for them to show their ads to their viewers. This helps YouTubers to make money on YouTube no matter their country and niche.

To make money on YouTube, you have to understand the different types of ads displayed on your YouTube videos.

  • Pre-roll: This type of ads acts as a preview of the main video. The pre-roll ads can be skipped after 5 seconds of playing.
  • In Search Ads: This type of ads displays to viewers when they search for videos to watch. It is usually yellow to distinguish the video from other videos on YouTube.
