YouTube is one of the most popular websites in the world. It has 1 billion users, and 300 hours of videos are uploaded every minute! That's a lot of content that needs to be monetized. YouTube offers several ways to make money from your channel.
Ten years ago, YouTube launched its partner program for content creators who wanted to monetize their videos through video ads, and other methods. Today, the rules of the game have changed a bit but you can still benefit from this program if you are passionate about creating videos.
If you are not familiar Youtube offers many options for people who want to make money off their videos, but there are other ways as well. In this blog post, we'll look at 5 new ways you can monetize your Youtube content that may not be on your radar yet.

The basic: Youtube Partner program

The Youtube Partner program is a way for you to collect money from people who watch your Youtube videos. The more popular your Youtube channel becomes, the more ad revenue it will generate.

We are pretty sure you already signed up, now, to make the most out of this tool for Youtube Influencers follow these recommendations

Make sure you are uploading videos consistently

If you upload new videos consistently, people will come back to keep an eye on your content and they'll be more inclined to click the "subscribe" button.

Create playlists that are relevant to one another and easy for viewers to navigate through.

Playlists are a great way to organize your content on your Youtube channel. It's easy for viewers to find content that is relevant within playlists, and it helps you avoid having long Youtube video titles.

Make sure your Youtube channel has a professional design and theme.

If your Youtube channel looks like a mess, people won't want to watch anything and you'll lose out on potential advertising revenue. Make sure everything is neatly organized with attention paid towards colors and fonts as well including video title.

Concentrate on a specific market.

If you create videos for a specific Youtube audience, you'll appeal to more people who are in that market. This will create loyal subscribers and increase the number of views on your Youtube channel, which could lead to advertising money down the road!

Take adventaje of video descriptions

Some people aren't going to watch every single one of your Youtube videos so it's up to you to convince them in the video descriptions. This is a great place for an introduction, along with a link that will lead viewers back to your website!
Don't forget to join Youtube's Partner Program to earn money by creating videos that have hundreds or thousands of views each day so keep uploading valuable content for your audience and you will begin to see the benefits in no time.

Channel memberships

Channel memberships
Another way for you to make money off your Youtube videos is by making them exclusive. If people are willing to pay channel memberships, then Youtube will share some of that revenue with you! This will be the focus of our next blog post, so stay tuned!
To sell channel memberships, you must first enable the "Membership Benefits" setting. This will allow people to sign up for a monthly subscription that allows them access to exclusive video content on your Youtube channel only available to members. You can set the price of these channel memberships and decide what types of benefits subscribers get as well such as custom emojis, badges, or even early access to videos.
People who want to sign up for a monthly subscription must go through Youtube's payments system and they'll be charged every 30 days. You can take payment information from your subscribers or even set it up so that the charge is taken out of their Google Wallet account at the same time!

There's a lot of money to be made if you design and sell your own merchandise based on the content that you create! It can be as simple as making t-shirts with funny quotes from a viral video or creating mugs for people who like watching cooking shows online.

If you're interested in selling merchandise, enable monetization by clicking "Merchandise" under the "Monetization" tab and choose which items you'd like to make available for purchase. You'll be able to set up how much money gets made from each individual purchase, and you'll get a percentage of the money made. You can even add a tax to your products if you'd like!

The newest tool for you to make money on Youtube channel is the "Super Chat." This function allows viewers who watch your videos on Youtube Live or in real time, a chance to give their opinion with a chat message that stands out. These messages can be seen by everyone watching live streams and they'll stay pinned at the top of the live chat stream throughout the video.
