Make Money Uploading Youtube Videos
Youtube started a new program this month where you can make money when you upload your videos. The program, called the “partner program,” will give you a share of the money from ads that are featured on your video.
The reason Youtube is doing this is because they’re legally not allowed to put advertising on copyrighted-content. To put ads on a video they first have to get permission from the copyright holder. Therefore, by entering the partner program, you give them permission to put ads on your video and they will give you a share of the money that’s made.
Here is an example of the ads that appear on partner videos (its the text at the bottom):
Since Youtube videos have the potential to reach millions of viewers this can be very lucrative for the big names on Youtube. It may also be a good reason to take out your camera and start using Youtube if you haven’t already.
Here are the requirements for the program:
- You must own the copyrights and distribution rights for all videos you upload.
- You must regularly upload videos that are viewed by thousands of Youtube users.
- You must live in the US or Canada.
If you meet these requirements, you can apply now and start making money off your videos. If you live outside of North America, keep your eyes open because they will probably be expanding the program in the near future.
