One of the biggest questions that seem to be hovering in the minds of You Tube users is how to turn their You Tube usage into a money making mechanism? Everybody seems to know that it is essential that you become a You Tube partner for your videos to really start making money for you. How does one become a You Tube partner?
Create an account
Quite naturally if you want to become a Youtube partner, you will need to have a You Tube account. Create an account with a username that is catchy and short and sweet to remember. Your username should in some way reflect the essence of your channel. If you want to create a channel on teenage fashion trends think of usernames which most definitely use the terms teens and trends. Your username could be something as simple as TeenTrends12 or Teenends or something similar. Get creative with the username because more often than not it can make or break your Youtube presence.
Always add a description to your profile. Tell the people briefly what to expect from your channel. It is not always great to keep the masses in the dark. If people view your channel thinking they are going to get parent tips on how to handle teenagers and end up viewing teenage fashion you have earned yourself a negative review. A description helps you attract the right kind of audience. If you have more than 500 followers on your channel, You Tube will be more than happy to pay you for advertising on your channel
Keep the content original and interesting
Choose a topic for your channel and start making videos. It is not necessary that your videos look professional the first time around. Making videos is a learning curve. As and when you upload videos, comments of viewers and your own experience will guide you on how to improve the quality of the videos you upload. Remember to keep your content original. Nobody likes copied videos. As you get more and more topics to record invest in a tripod or ask a friend to help you with the recording. Make sure you have enough light while recording the videos.
Update your channel regularly. Make sure your viewers have something new to look forward to every time.
Promote your channel
You will attract followers to your Youtube channel only if they know it exists. Every time you upload your video talk about it on facebook, twitter and any other social networking site. The more buzz you create about the channel the better for you. The amount of money you make from your Youtube channel is directly dependent on its popularity. Encourage your friends to promote your channel too. Make sure you have enough content to keep uploading on your channel.
Once your Youtube channel has gotten more than five hundred followers you are now ready to enjoy the benefit of your channel making money for you.
