Now what steps should I follow?
The first step to make money on YouTube involves the registration. First, you have to register/open a YouTuber account, if you already have one and you’re ok with using it, you can but in case of any reasons which might be best known to you, you can easily open a new account.
After creating an account with YouTube, it’s important to go ahead and verify your newly created account as it is impossible to earn money without verification. Verifying helps YouTube to know your country thereby knowing the currency use while working with you. It is therefore, very unwise to skip this step if your purpose for a YouTube life is to make money.
Unverified accounts cannot use thumbnails on their videos (Thumbnails are pictures that appear to represent a video, they appear when you’re yet to click on a video).
The third step which follows after verification is getting an audience. One can say there are two steps to take at the same time following the fact that you need to gain audience and watch time.
With the new terms and conditions of the search engine, one can only make money on YouTube if he gains one Thousand (1000) number of subscribers and Four Thousand (4000) Watch hours. This means, after 1000 people have clicked the red subscribe button on your YouTube channel, an audience needs to have watched your video/videos (likely to be less than 30mins each) for a total of 4000 hours.
After walking through all the above steps, it’s time to monetize your YouTube account through Google AdSense and start making money. You first of all need to create a Google AdSense account, then link it to your precious YouTube channel, Boom! That’s it, you’re ready to make money.
