I recently got this question on a scope I did. Here is the answer:
I’ve been on and off of youtube since 2008. My first channel was a beauty channel I started in college. A few years later, I started a lifestyle channel (the one I have today) and, even though I don’t live fully off of the earnings, I do get to pay some bills from it 🙂 So here are the different ways I get paid as a youtuber.
- MULTI-CHANNEL NETWORK
A few years ago, it wasn’t easy to become a paid Youtuber. You had to have a whole lot of views or be signed to a Multi-Channel network. A few examples are FullScreen.com & Maker.tv. Basically,a multi-channel network uses the collective views of its members to negotiate deals with major brands. As a result, I’ve been been paid to do videos for sponsors like 1-800-flowers. They also make it possible for me to merchandise and put my music on itunes (if I want to). To apply to my favorite MCN click here
Google Adsense is easy to sign up for. It allows you to monetize your videos by running ads on them. Every video you monetize will have ads and you get paid a percentage of what youtube makes. This is what most people are upset about when it comes to the new Youtube Red subscription service. Thats’ why it’s important to monetize your youtube in multiple ways.
3. AFFIALIATE MARKETING
This is a new revenue stream I’m learning and it’s already given me results. Basically, I get my own special link for products I talk about in my videos. I usually place these links in my description box. When people go purchase the items, I get 10% commission. There are few different ways to do this, but my favorite way is in my amazon store.
