Make Money on YouTube

YouTube Monetization

What compels most creators to create is rarely the money. It’s the thought of making something for the world to enjoy. But ironically, that puts them in a great position to actually make money in a content-obsessed world.

While the hard part for many businesses is getting and keeping their audience’s attention, most YouTubers have already figured that bit out. All that’s left is to get creative—to channel the entrepreneurial drive to explore ideas—with how you choose to monetize your passion.

Just like being an Instagram influencer or a blogger, your audience might unlock your earning potential, but it’s the creation of multiple revenue streams that help you actually make money. However, let us focus on how to make money without veering off the YouTube Platform. 

Inasmuch as YouTube keeps tweaking its algorithm when it comes to monetization, there is a need to understand that unless your channel is “Monetized”, you will not earn a dime from YouTube. Your views count or subscribers do not make you money on YouTube, rather it is the ads that run on your videos that bring the money.

So, if you have, say, 1 million views on a particular video and your channel isn’t monetized, you cannot make any money. You have to be a YouTube Partner to be eligible to activate monetization on your channel. The YouTube Partner Program lets creators monetize their content on YouTube. Creators can earn money from advertisements served on their videos.

Here is how to activate monetization on your channel:

  1. Sign in to YouTube.
  2. In the top right, select your account icon > Creator Studio
  3. In the left menu, select Channel > Status and features.
  4. Under “Monetization,” click Enable.
  5. Follow the on-screen steps to accept the YouTube Partner Program Terms.

Below is an example of a channel that is enabled for monetization.

Status and Features

Once your monetization is enabled, you’ll notice a green “$” next to your videos in the “Video Manager”, indicating whether it’s been enabled for monetization, which you can click on to access the monetization settings for each video.

A monetized video means you can earn money from the video when it is watched. 

NOTE: For channels that are yet to meet the new monetization eligibility threshold set by YouTube, there is still a way for you to retain your monetization without hitting 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours watch time. Find out in my next post!

Mugeez of R2bees was born on the 22nd of January, Wizkid on the 16th of July; that’s how the title of the song 22/16 was arrived at.

This song was recorded on Mugeez’s birthday earlier in the year and he has decided to release on Wizkid’s birthday. It’s a break from the  norm, some good reggae tune.

Eva Alordiah has had a good year so far, in terms of the quality of content she’s been dishing out. She kick-started the year with “DEAF” and followed it up with “SHUGA”; both getting rave reviews on NJO and across the blogosphere.

Now the 2014 ‘Best Rap Act‘ and ‘Female Artist of the Year nominee at the NEAs decides to hop on Ice Prince and Sarkodie’s “Shots on Shots“, and as usual, she slays it from start to finish. I bet Ice would be wondering why he didn’t get her on the original in the first place.

Eva is set to release a new single this month and is wrapping up her debut album already stated for an August release. For now, enjoy this dope rap cut.

German TV, radio, and media group ProSiebenSat.1 has taken a major stake in international music streamer Deezer, according to Die Welt. Details of the deal were not revealed, but sources put the new holding at less than 50%. To date, Deezer has raised $150 million; $130 million of which came last year from WMG and Beats investor Access Industries.

As part of the deal, ProSiebenSat.1 music service AMPYA will be merged into Deezer. Together the music services will be a dominate player in Germany, the world’s 4th biggest music market.

“Deezer and ProSiebenSat.1 are moving forward together. With Deezer we are offering the most intuitive personalised music service on the market,” Gerrit Schumann, ViP of Deezer Europe said in a statement. “With the reach of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group we will be allowing an even larger audience unlimited access to our music catalogue.”

The cash infusion also comes months before Deezer enters the competitive U.S. market later this year.

One of the best rappers in the game right now – Olamide – raises the bar once again with an international collaboration featuring MMG’s Nigerian-American Superstar, Wale, on the track “Make Us Proud”. The Pheelz-produced joint is a smooth Hip-Hop track which celebrates rising from the streets to the top and making a name out of nothing.

With lines like “Papilo, we know say one day you go make us proud”, it could also be seen as a theme song for the Super Eagles who will be representing Nigeria at the World Cup in Brazil later this month.

Whether you’re a rap fan or not, you gotta appreciate the dopeness of this track “Make Us Proud“.
