Hi, my name is Gijs Bodenstaff, one of the Online Video Professionals, and in this video I will show you how you can earn money with YouTube. First I will show you a very useful tool with which you can look up what a renowned YouTuber, a famous Vlogger, earns per month, per year. Afterwards I will show you how you can earn money with your videos in two steps. And how you link your Google Adsense Account to your YouTube Account, so the money which you earn will also appear in your bank account. Maybe it’s nice to first look at what renowned YouTubers earn, like Enzoknol, Stuk TV, KSI, etc. There is a very useful tool for this which is called Socialblade, socialblade.com. And if we go there you will see an empty field here, and you can type in a popular YouTuber, and you will see how much they earn on average per month, per year. But that is an average because YouTube has many different ways in which you can earn money. This is of course, most importantly, the advertisements, and the adverts are again divided in 4 kinds of adverts, I’ll come back to that later. And you get paid per 1000 views, so if 1000 people have watched your video. Then YouTube has a CPM, Cost per Thousands. The earnings per 1000 views, and you will get a certain percentage of it, which is 55%. I will show you that all later. But first let’s enter a popular Vlogger or popular YouTuber. Well, say we would enter here ‘Enzoknol’ for example, and you click on enter. Then you will see that his average monthly income is between the $10.000 and the $171.000, and per year that’s between the $128.000 and the $2.1 million. Well, how could these differences be so big? Well, on the one hand [uh] if Google doesn’t automatically show advertisements [uh] you also won’t earn anything with the advertisement model of YouTube. [uh] Another reason could be [uh] that it have to be Monetized views, which means that they have to be paid [uh] viewers. Thirdly it depends on the rate of the advertisement or what the advertisement earnings per advertisement are. There are different adverts, you might have seen that, those are adverts which you can’t click away after a few seconds. Well, the longer the seconds it takes before you can click it away, [uh] the higher the earnings are in general. You also have advertisements which you can’t click away at all. which you have to watch until the end. [uh] You have adverts with small banners, those are these small text adverts. So every kind of advert has a [uh] different kind of income for your YouTube Channel and for your YouTube video. Let’s type in another famous YouTuber, like ‘StukTV’. Well, you see that the income is already a bit lower here. By the way, it doesn’t matter for your income what you generate, how many subscribers you have, how many likes, how many dislikes, how many comments. It is purely the watch time, so [heh] how many times your videos are watched, the views. Well, you see that they earn approximately between $3,3 and $53.000 per month, in dollars. And annually that is between $40.000 and $600.000. To generate income from your YouTube Channel, you have to [uh] complete the first two steps, and first you go to the icon in the top right corner. You click on ‘YouTube settings’, you click on ‘View extra functions’. And it is very important that you [uh] haven’t had a warning from YouTube, which means that your ‘Communication directive’ needs a ‘Good reputation’, and you can see that here, by the green dot, and that you haven’t infringed copyrights. So you haven’t used music, or video or film fragments of somebody else. Well, at the moment these 2 green balls are there, you can switch on ‘Generate Income’ you click on it. You click on ‘Switch on my account’, then you’ll agree with the terms, you check this, ‘I agree’. Well, then you can indicate which kind of advertisements you want to have shown. And what needs to happen is that your Google Adsense Account needs to be linked to YouTube. You have to be at least 18 years old for it, and if you aren’t, you have to ask a parent if they can open a Google Adsense Account [uh] in their name. And with the Google Adsense Account you’ll eventually get paid by YouTube. If you reached the minimum of 70€. So if you earned €5 in the past month, YouTube will collect it until you have €70. And then they pay you with the Google Adsense program. And at your Google Adsense Account you have to enter your bank account, your IBAN, your name, street, address, etc. So it is very important that you link that eventually, you can also do so later. But the moment you saved up €70, only then YouTube will pay you. Well, we are going to link my Google Adsense Account to my YouTube Account. ‘Link my account’ then it will say ‘Create account’ or ‘log in’ , well the moment you don’t yet have a Gmail Account, it is important you create one. You can do that with ‘Create Account’, and if you don’t know how that works, I have a video if you click on the ‘i’ in the top right corner, in which I explain how you create a Gmail Account. If you already have a Gmail Account, you just go to ‘Log in’, you set the language to Dutch, You click on ‘Next’. The Netherlands, so at this moment [uh] you enter everything. I will leave this open, you send your request, and when it is approved you can link your Google Adsense to your YouTube, and then, when you have saved up the €70 you can have it paid out with your Google Adsense Account. And then they can send a check or pay with Paypal. So say, I have a video online, and you can now see here, with the Dollar sign, that income isn’t generated. Say I want to generate income, ‘Info and settings’, you go to ‘Generate income’, you swipe it to the right. Then you can indicate here what kind of adverts YouTube can show with your video. Those are “Overlay adverts’, those are ‘Sponsored cards’ and ‘Video adverts’, and each of this kind of adverts has a different income model. And per 1000 monetized views, so with 1000 showed video adverts [uh] you will receive amount X. And this amount could differ from $1 to $10, so that’s not up to you. YouTube decides it, and you only decide if an advert is shown and what kind of advert. But you can’t decide which certain advert will or will not be shown. It is possible, but you can do that in your Google Adsense Account, and if you go to that video, you see that the dollar sign is yellow or orange. That means that the generating of income still needs to be assessed. That is probably done by an automatic robot or an employee of YouTube. Then they are assessing whether your channel is in good standing, which means that you did not break the YouTube guidelines. So you haven’t broken the ‘Communication guidelines’ So you haven’t broken the ‘Copyright’, so you haven’t used music or content or video fragments from somebody else. Well if that is all correct your video will be assessed and then the dollar sign will eventually become blue. Another way to monetize your video so you generate income is actually by just clicking on the grey dollar sign. You go to ‘generate income’, you switch to the right. You click on ‘Save changes’ You go back to your video, and you see that the dollar sign has become blue. Do you want to know what the ‘General Conditions’ of YouTube precisely are concerning the payment of your YouTube advertisement income? Then go to the right icon, the top right corner. You click on it, you click on ‘YouTube settings’, you click on it, you go to ‘View extra functions,’ you click on it. There you go to ‘Generate income’, then you go to ‘Check Agreement with YouTube.” And then you also see that, indeed, 55% of the income which is generated by your video, is paid by YouTube, and YouTube keeps 45%. So read this thoroughly and you will be completely up to date. So, in summary. 1) You have to set up your YouTube channel according to the guidelines of YouTube. Haven’t you done that already? Then I redirect you to to top right corner, to the ‘i’. In which I explain how you create a YouTube Channel, set it up and optimise it according to the guidelines of YouTube. 2) A YouTube channel needs to be in Good standing and did not receive a warning. 3) Switch on ‘generating income’ and 4) Link your Google Adsense Account to your YouTube Account.
