Wondering How often YouTube pays? Most of us just use YouTube as a way to kill time, but for some people it’s a way to make money. This works because YouTube puts ads on channels with 10,000 lifetime views, and the money from those ads goes to the people who made the channel. Here’s how you can join in on the fun.
Make Consistent Videos
It may seem obvious, but it’s the most important thing you need to do to make money on YouTube. As a YouTube creator, your main goal is to get more people to watch your videos. The best way to do this is to post consistent, high-quality content. Make sure you enjoy making your videos and that your viewers enjoy watching them. That’s the best way to make sure your work is both fun and eventually profitable.
Apply for the YouTube Partner Program
You can join the YouTube Partner Program if it’s available in your country and you fill out an application. Once your channel has had 10,000 views in total, YouTube will look at it to make sure it follows its rules for creators. If it does, your application will be approved.
Connect to AdSense
Connect your YouTube channel to an AdSense account once you’ve joined the YouTube Partner Program. So, your monetized videos will make you money. These videos must be good for advertisers, allow commercial use, and follow the rules of YouTube’s Partner Program (more on that later). You must also be able to show that you have the commercial rights to all the audio and video in your video.
Your AdSense account is how you get paid. You can cash them out when your account meets the payment threshold in your country.
How Creators Get Paid
Once your video is set up to make money, people who watch ads will pay you. You can also get paid if people sign up for YouTube Red, which lets them watch videos without ads.
Members of the YouTube Partner Program get paid for their videos based on how much their audience interacts with the ads. Some advertisers pay for each click, while others pay for each view. For example, an advertiser might pay $3 per click, which means that they have to pay $3 every time someone clicks on their ad. In the cost-per-view model, advertisers don’t pay unless at least 30 seconds of the ad is watched.
