How To Monetize and Make Money From Your Youtube Videos

There are a ton of scams on the internet on how you can make thousands of dollars in a few days. This is just absolutely wrong. On the internet there are no real get rich quick schemes that actually work.

Youtube is the 2nd largest search engine behind Google (It also happens to be owned by Google as well). With this being said, there is a huge opportunity to use Youtube to make money.

Frequently Asked Questions about Making Money on Youtube:

Question 1: Will I make a lot of money?

Answer: The opportunity to make a good amount of money is there BUT it will take some time and it is not going to happen over night.

Question 2: How much will I make?

Answer: This all depends on if you stick with it, and how good your content is. (You could make as little as a dollar and as much as you are willing to put in the time for).

Question 3: Do I have to be a partner to monetize my videos?

Answer: NO

Below, I have listed the steps you need to take to monetize your Youtube channel.

[box type=”info”] You have to have at least 3-5 videos uploaded on your channel in order to monetize your videos.[/box]

First, you must login to your youtube account and click on your channel name in the upper right hand corner and select settings.

After you click on the monetization settings you will see a big blue button in the middle of the screen that says “Enable”. Click on this and it will take you to a terms and service page. Accept all of googles terms and you will be ready to monetize your videos.

Once you have your account set up for monetization you will see an option after you have uploaded a video to place ads on it. You will need to go into this option and enable ads for each video you upload.

Go to video manager from your channel and you will see an option next to your uploaded videos with a dollar sign. Click on this option and it will take you into the monetization options. This will be where you will come each time you want to place ads on a video.

When you are in the monetization settings you will see a paragraph stating that you own all of the content in your video and there is no copyright material in your video. If this is true, click on the “Got It” button”. This will now place ads on that specific video.

[box type=”warning”] Remember, you must own all of the content in your video OR have permission from the content creator to put ads on your videos. If you do not abide by Google’s rules and regulations you will be at risk to lose your Youtube Account.[/box]

Also, you must have an Google Adsense account set up in order to place ads and collect your money that you have earned.


In closing, I will say that Youtube is a very good way of making a little extra spending cash, and the opportunity to do more than that. If you have the pasion, love what you are doing, and product GREAT content you will be successful.
