We all know that many people are making huge amount of money from YouTube. Have you read the success story of Piediewpie, KSI, Disney Collector, amongst others? These guys are making millions of dollars monthly on YouTube. This is an evidence to show you how much money you can make on YouTube.

YouTube is a platform where you upload videos and share with your friends and then make money from adverts placed on those videos. YouTube pays you 68% from the revenue generated and retains 32%. If you have huge traffic on your YouTube channel you can make huge amount of money.

However, not to waste much of your time, I am going to show you how to make money on YouTube by uploading videos. You can easily make money online, but the problem many people have is the lack of correct knowledge and information on how to make money online. You can make huge amount of money by monetizing your YouTube channel and attracting unique visitors and traffic to your channel.

Before I proceed any further, some people may be asking, what is YouTube? Well, for those who are new to YouTube and who haven’t heard about it, YouTube is currently the biggest video search engine in the world owned by Google. It is the second most visited website in the world after Google and also the second largest search engine in the world after Google search. YouTube have millions of creators all over the world who upload more than 400,000 hours of videos daily. YouTube has over 4 billion unique visitors daily. People nowadays prefer to watch videos rather than reading articles and this has also contributed to the success of YouTube.

On YouTube, visitors can watch a whole lot of videos for free.  Videos are hosted on YouTube for free and allow many people to make money without paying a dime for hosting or whatever. Because of the huge traffic potential YouTube has, many smart internet gurus and content creators have made fortune using the platform. Many YouTubers make millions of dollars monthly from the platform and the most interesting thing about YouTube is that it is free. You don’t need to pay for hosting. You only need to post videos you created by yourself and monetize them.

To join the league of YouTube creators making millions of dollars monthly, all you need to do is to create a Gmail account and use your Gmail address to create a YouTube account. Simply visit and signup with your Gmail account. After creating an account on YouTube, then you can start posting videos immediately. You will have to accumulate 4000 watch hours for one year and 1000 subscribers on your channel before you can be able to monetize your videos.

It is very important to make sure that the channel name you choose is short and easy to pronounce. You also need to make sure the channel topic is related to your niche which you will stick to. Make sure you write a brief description about your channel to tell viewers what your channel is all about. Also, make sure you upload a very unique logo on your channel and include your social media icon, so that your viewers can easily follow you.

Some of you may be asking, how do I create videos to upload on my channel? The answer is very simple. You can create videos on any topic of your choice. You can either use digital camera or phone camera to record your footage and edit it using an Adobe Premier Pro, Video Studio, Final Cut Pro or you can use window Editor from Microsoft or YouTube video editor. YouTube has an editing studio which you can easily use to edit your videos. But to make your video more professional, I suggest you use a professional studio like Adobe Premier Pro or Final Cut Pro to edit your videos.

If you don’t have camera, you can create photo slideshow videos using YouTube video editor or window video editor from Microsoft. Another way to create a video is by using PowerPoint slides and screen video capture software. The software has video editing function which you can use to edit your videos.

To make money on your video, you will need to attract huge traffic to your channel first. Before, you can create YouTube channel, upload few videos and start monetizing your channel immediately. But, in the beginning of this year, YouTube changed their partner program policy, which now states that content creators must accumulate 4000 watch hours in a year and 1000 subscribers on their channel before they can be able to monetize their videos.

So after creating your new channel, forget about monetization for the meantime and focus on uploading videos so as to attract viewers and generate traffic. Once you reach YouTube minimum threshold for monetization, then you can apply for YouTube Partner Program and signup for an adsense account, then link your adsense account with your YouTube channel. YouTube will review your channel and get back to you.

If your channel complied with the YouTube Partner Program policy, your channel will be approved and you will start making money right away.

For those of you who don’t know which niche to focus on YouTube. For me, I will recommend that you look for niche that you have wide knowledge on and which you can sustain on the long run. You can make money from YouTube by turning your channel into an online classroom and teach people anything ranging from cooking tips, make-ups, traveling and tour guide, tech support and many more. You can set up a gaming channel and play games likes Super Mario, FIFA, PES, Mortal Combat, Black Soldiers, amongst others. You can create a comedy channel and entertain your viewers with comedy skit.

You can shoot movies and upload them on YouTube. Just make sure everything you upload on YouTube is created by you. Otherwise, you may land yourself in trouble. If you upload other people’s videos on YouTube, they will strike you and when you receive three strikes, YouTube will terminate your account and you won’t be able to create new channel again.

You can use your YouTube channel to sell products online, place affiliate links, host webinars and brand yourself, which means you can become a celebrity on YouTube. Remember to enable monetization on your channel and link your YouTube channel to an adsense account, because that is the only way you will be paid. If you forget to link your channel to an adsense account, adverts will not be able to show on your videos and you won’t be able to make money on YouTube.

After creating your YouTube channel, continue uploading unique videos either on a daily basis or on a weekly basis and never give up. It will take time to make huge money on YouTube, so you have to exercise patience and grow your channel.
