HOW TO EARN CASH ON YOUTUBE 2017

We can’t promise you’ll earn £100,000 like the dad who uploaded “Charlie bit my finger – again!”, the clip of two cheeky brothers that racked up 825m views. Yet even if your YouTube videos don’t become global phenomena, it’s possible to earn a little extra each month through the clip-sharing site.

Before we get started, here’s forumite sophie.christie‘s story for inspiration:

About two years ago I started a YouTube account. One of my videos started to do quite well and the site asked me to become a partner.

I started to receive a very low income from this. However, over the last year I’ve been posting new videos on birthday party tips. I have now have 80, and a daily income of more than £20. It’s rising by about 10% each month.

How YouTube’s partner programme works

YouTube’s Partner Programme lets users take a cut of the cash from the adverts that run alongside their videos. You must apply to become a partner, but YouTube says anyone who regularly uploads original clips which get a fair amount of views should be eligible.

Earnings vary dramatically, depending on how many views you rack up and how much revenue the ads generate.

Quick summary

  • Who’s this good for? People who enjoy making funny or specialist clips, and are a whizz with video cameras
  • Typical earnings: £60 every two months (though it varies dramatically)
  • Payment method: Cheque from Google Adsense
  • How much you need to earn before it pays: £60
  • Have you tried it? Share your experiences on the YouTube forum thread
