How does YouTube monetization work?

YouTube's monetization program can become your passive income or even your main income source if you invest your time and resources in building a powerful page with unique content. There are several monetization options in the YouTube Partner Program:

Ad Revenue

Brands and companies create ads in the Google AdSense Network and place them in videos. You get paid every time a user watches the ad to the end. The formats may differ - display ads, overlays, skippable and non-skippable video ads, and bumper ads placed as pre- or mid-roll ads.

Channel Memberships

Another way to monetize your channel is to offer memberships to subscribers in exchange for exclusive content, special videos, live chats, etc. Only channels with 1,000 or more subscribers can apply for this monetization option.

Branded Merchandise

If you have already built great branding and become an influencer, you can monetize your channel by selling officially branded merchandise. The products category is to be your niche to interest your audience. Channels with over 10.000 subscribers can apply for this monetization option.

Super Chat and Super Stickers

Your channel's fans can bring you revenue by paying for comments and messages pinned during YouTube live streams. It is a win-win solution for channel owners and audience members who want to promote their own channels.
