15 Ways to Make Income From YouTube Channel

YouTube Monetisation

The first and most popular way to earn money from YouTube is through YouTube ads.

When someone is watching a video on YouTube, and ads appear between video streaming, then the video owner earns money.

This earning amount is distributed between video owners and the YouTube platform in a ratio of 55 and 45.

But the most important thing is that to earn money from videos through YouTube platforms, the creator channel to be monetized becomes first priority.

At the present time, there are several criteria to clear the eligibility of any YouTube channel to monetize.

A YouTube channel with a minimum of 500 subscribers must have at least 3 videos uploaded in the last 90 days and 3000 hours of public watch time or 3 million Public Shorts watch time to monetize.

Apart from this, a YouTube channel is eligible to monetize if it has 1000 subscribers with 4000 public hours watch time or 10 million public short watch time.

If any YouTube channel fulfills one of the above conditions, then YouTube ad monetization starts on that channel, and earnings can be started from this channel.

However, in comparison to a government job with a yearly income from any YouTube channel, it could be high or low, which depends on the hard work of the creator.

As per the present scenario, the income of government employee could be less but provide a guarantee of getting a salary every month, which make daily life comfortable.
