5 Low-Key Ways to Get Paid on YouTube in 2022

Let's get them out of the way first. The biggest obstacle to joining the YouTube affiliate program is reaching 1000 subscribers. This opens the door to advertising revenue.

Before becoming a partner, some additional conditions apply.

Videos must comply with the site's advertising guidelines and have 4,000 active hours of public viewing in the last 12 months. You must live in that area.

You need to connect your Google AdSense account. Once you meet the requirements, you can register by clicking on your profile and going to the monetization section.

Affiliates can generate money from ads, membership benefits, and features like Super Chat, which pay viewers to post during live streams. 

How many views do you need to make money on YouTube?

You don't pay to watch the video. Instead, you earn money for the time someone watches or clicks on an ad in your video.

According to Influencer Marketing Hub, payment methods vary, but the average YouTube channel sees around $18 per 1,000 ad views. Counting the number of ads actually viewed, it's $3-$5 per 1,000 video views.

So when can you start making money on YouTube? You will be paid when your balance reaches $100. Let's say you need about 1,000 video views to earn $4 from viewers viewing your ad. To earn $100 from this ad, you need to watch 25,000 videos.

For small channels, you can only earn once every few months. You'll also want to know how Google handles taxes when you make AdSense payments.

Does it seem like a long way to go? Here are some other ways you can make money before you reach 1000 subscribers.

2. Become an affiliate marketer

Affiliate marketing is the most effective way to monetize YouTube traffic, especially if you plan to create product review videos. This would be something like:

You can find companies or sellers with affiliate programs like Amazon Associates and sign up for membership. Once approved, use this process to create a custom link to the product you want to use in your video.

When demoing, watching, or linking to and uploading a product in a YouTube video, enter your affiliate marketing link in the Description field. As a Brand Affiliate, you earn commissions when viewers click on custom links and buy products.

Amazon Associates is a great way to make money on Amazon, but the opportunities are endless. Find potential business partners and products to use on affiliate marketing sites like ShareASale and ClickBank. You can also find information about sourcing partners directly on some brands' websites. Be sure to properly communicate your brand or brand relationship to your viewers and refer to the "link in description" when composing your video.

3. Create sponsored content with branded offers

Closing brand deals, which is also a form of affiliate marketing, is another way to make money on YouTube. Companies interested in their channel's audience can sponsor a video or offer a PPL in lieu of promotion.

The operative word here is "public." This means that if you develop followers, you can get such offers more often. As your channel grows, you can reach out directly to the brands you want to work with or use resources like the affiliate marketing sites mentioned above to find business partners that fit your content style.

With branded offers, you can get a lump sum, a sales commission, or a product or service for free. Note: If you have an offer or are using PPL for your video, you must notify YouTube by checking the box indicating that the video contains paid ads in the "Advanced Settings" tab of the Video Manager.

4. Create and sell your own product or merchandise

If you offer a product or service that is relevant to your audience, let your audience know and include a link in the video. For example, Marques Brownlee, creator of the popular tech review channel MKBHD, links to his jerseys and accessories in every video he posts. Selling a physical product may require you to purchase materials or find a manufacturer, but you can also sell downloadable products such as e-books, art prints, or virtual lessons. Get a secure payment system before promoting your product. Promotions: Creating your own product can be more difficult than other businesses, but as a product owner, you can make more money while keeping most of the profits.
