Use Ads, The fastest way to start earning money from YouTube

The first step towards a successful YouTube business is the most obvious one, you must create a YouTube channel that has a name that isn’t easy to forget.
In order to be able to start monetizing your videos, your channel must first reach 10.000 views. At that point, YouTube will know that your channel is legitimate and it will enable you to apply to be a YouTube partner. In order to verify your account, you must go Creator Studio and enable the Monetization feature. Once you’ve completed this task, you should connect your YouTube channel to your AdSense account. After you have successfully finished the entire process ads in your videos will start making a profit each time somebody watches an ad on your account.

Make use of Sponsored Videos
The Internet is a large marketplace, that an increasing number of companies uses to advertise their products. YouTube video makers can earn substantial amounts of money if a company offers them a product placement deal or if they agree to sponsor the videos published on a video maker’s channel. Although this method of earning money through YouTube may not be time-consuming negotiating a good deal and gaining recognition from major companies might take some time and effort. Furthermore, due to a large competition finding a company that wants to sponsor your videos may sound easier than it actually is, because they have to be sure that their product ads will reach their target audience.
Sponsored Videos are probably the best choice for YouTubers who create tutorials or How-To videos because these videos have a better chance of matching the needs of large companies.
Rent out your videos
Renting videos is a great way to increase your income, however, this method of earning money is best suited for YouTubers who already have a large base of subscribers. Videos with high numbers of views can be useful to people who are trying to gain recognition on this platform, which is why they are often willing to pay for their link to be included in the video’s description. Even though featuring the link isn’t time-consuming at all, finding the people who are willing to pay a monthly or annual fee for the service may be a bit more complicated.
The income generated in this manner is medium at best, but it is reliable because it guarantees that your videos will make money each month.
