YouTube Monetization - How Much Does it Pay?

by FrediDoo 32 replies
Hey guys,

I've been searching high and low for an answer, but can't find a reputable one anywhere! I heard that YouTube was paying per view if you monetize your videos with their ads - question is, how much are they paying per view?

    I believe that it depends from where the view comes, if it converts or not and from which country it comes, it is not a fixed amount.

    I get roughly 1400 views per month and about $10. However, I create videos for my consulting business; not to be rich on YouTube.

    YouTube has crap CPC. I get around 500 views per day and my CPC is like around $0.05!

    Barely anything.

    You're much better of monetizing your videos with affiliate links.

      what is youtube policy on affiliate links?

      say you create a web page that has the affiliate link on it, you then show that url in the video (not clickable) and also in your description - are youtube ok with promoting affiliate links?

    YouTube are O.K with affiliate links on certain conditions...

    Without going into it extensively... provide value on the videos, and they'll leave them up.

    If you want some examples just search 'bodybuilding' on YouTube. I swear every second video has a link to a 'build massive biceps' page.

    As long as I know, people use Youtube to bring traffic, and not make money from the videos.
    They monetize the landing page, not directly from the videos.

    And they monetize the landing page and the Youtube's traffic with CPA, CB, use it to build list, etc. Youtube is the goldmine to get free huge traffic.

    I use You Tube to get traffic to my landing page by putting my link in my description.

    For IMers I tend to agree with this.

    Pretty much. Use a CTA in your videos to direct viewers elsewhere into a sales channel.

    It's really not paying per view, it's more like getting a cut of advertising revenue (banners) that are layered on your video. Keep in mind these have to be actions, such as clicking a link or watching a pre-ad before your video even gets credited with earning something.

    This is a viable alternative for individuals/channels where all they want to do is make videos, and are mainly doing it to entertain their audience and grow their own following - for perhaps bigger things.

    The one thing that is clear about such monetization is that your channel views need to be in the MILLIONS to start earning anywhere near a full time income. That generally lends itself to a viral following not normally associated with niche marketing.
