5 Solid Ways To Make Money From YouTube Channel Videos

Everyone wants to know how do you make more money from YouTube videos? Let me tell you that if you search on the internet you will find thousands of platforms to earn money from the internet but Youtube is the smartest and legitimate way to make money online. I’ve worked with two different companies, so let me tell you those great tactics.

How Much You Can Earn From Youtube

Most people think that they are getting a good amount of views, they have a huge amount subscriber so they will be able to make a lot of money from YouTube. But the reality is that this is not so important. You know a single video can make you Millionaire whereas sometimes 100 videos fail to generate a single penny. YouTube can generate around 2 $ per 1000 views, but as people are using AdBlocker software so the minimum earning you can expect around 1.8 $ per 1000 views. Though sometimes earning depend on different factors like

  • Watch Time
  • Placing of your ads
  • Duration of your videos
  • Countries of viewers and subscribers
  • Type and cost of ads
  • Audience comments and shares, etc.
  • Which devices they are using like Desktop, Tablets or Mobiles.

If you are living in South Asia like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Srilanka you can get around 1500 $ to 2000$ per month from Youtube (I think this is enough to live a standard life) by giving little extra efforts and if you from America or European countries you have to work bit harder to get more money to match up their high standard.
