It is the most common question of the newcomer YouTubers but On 16th January 2018 YouTube announced that to join YouTube Partner Program (YPP) a new channel needs 14000 hours of watch time and 1000 subscribers within past 12 months. To make money from YouTube (by AdSense) you need to join YPP. I believe after months of experience the money doesn’t depend on only the views. The revenue depends on total watch time, ad sequences on your videos, type of video content, from where the video is being watched etc.

Though there is another option to make money from YouTube. YouTube is a platform where technical skills not required to set your SEO (Search Engine Optimization Technique). Means your videos get views very easily depending on the content and the keywords. So till your channel can reach to the YouTube’s new threshold limit of 14000 hours of watch time and 1000 subscribers you can make money from affiliate marketing.

You will see most YouTubers give some links in their video description that will take you to Amazon or somewhere else where you can buy the product. Those links are affiliate links. When you make a purchase using those links then the YouTuber get some commission from the affiliate service providers (like Amazon, Flipkart etc.)

So don’t be upset making money is not so easy on internet but once you start getting it then it never stops. But always remember “Honesty is the key“.

The knowledge of affiliate marketing will help you in the future to make money from a website as a blogger.

You can also study the great books like “ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging“, Make Money Outside of Your Day Job

You must remember there is no syllabus or proper course to learn these subjects. You have to follow the blogs and books to increase your knowledge.
