Here are the 4 steps to monetize your YouTube videos with Adsense

1. Become a YouTube partner
Once your channel reaches 10,000 lifetime public views, it will be reviewed to join the Partner program.
Here’s how to check…
Sign in to your YouTube account.
In the top right, select your account icon > Creator Studio.
In the left menu, select Channel > Status and features.
Under “Monetization,” click Enable.
Follow the on-screen steps to accept the YouTube Partner Program Terms.

2. Sign-up for Adsense
Create a new AdSense account or connect an existing one to your channel. You need an AdSense account to earn money from your videos and get paid. Follow these steps to set up an AdSense account.

3. Set monetization preferences
Set what types of ads you want to run on your videos and automatically turn on monetization for all your existing and future videos.
When you set this up, you will start earning money as soon as your channel is approved.
Confirm you want to monetize for all your existing and future videos.
Check the boxes under Ads formats to choose the types of ads you want to show.
Click Save.

You can always change these setting in your monetization defaults so that every upload is automatically monetized or not monetized, or choose the specific videos you want to monetize.

4. Get reviewed (after you reach 10,000 views)
Once your channel has 10,000 views, YouTube will review your application to make sure your channel activity adheres to the YouTube Partner Program policies, YouTube Terms of Service, and our Community Guidelines. They’ll let you know as soon as the process is complete.

You can also check the status of your application at Creator Studio > Channel > Monetization. The process may take up to several weeks.

If you’re approved: You’ll start earning money on YouTube right away if you’ve already chosen the videos you want to monetize. If you don’t have enough views for a review yet, keep making original content and growing your audience.

The view count threshold gives YouTube enough information to determine the validity of your channel. It also allows them to confirm if a channel is following their community guidelines and advertiser policies.

What if you don’t have 10,000 lifetime views?
Set-up an in-stream video ads campaign on adwords for video. You can get views for as little as 1cent/view so you’ll only need to spend $100.00. Click here to learn how to create a videos ads campaign.

How much money can you earn from Adsense ads?
Not much if you are just starting your YouTube Channel. It’s not worth monetizing your channel with adsense ads until you have a lot of videos that have consistently generate a lot of views. Usually you get a few cents per 1000 views depending on your niche.

How do you get paid?
Your YouTube earnings depend on CPM (cost per thousand, denoted as M) which is the cost per thousand views. The average CPM ranges anywhere between $5-$10 and YouTube gets 45 percent of whatever you earn from the ads.

For example, if you earn $10 per 1,000 views, then YouTube takes $4.5. In the present day and age, you can earn anything between $500-$5000 for every million views.

How do you increase your adsense revenue?
Regularly upload new videos containing original content that your viewers want to watch. After publishing your video, share it on social media, sites, blogs, groups, forums to grow your audience.

1. Not all videos will be eligible for monetization
2. You don’t have to monetize all videos on your channel. You can just select one video on your channel to monetize with ads and leave the rest unchecked.
3. If you want to link a card or end screen to your associated website your channel must have monetization enabled.
