How to make money on YouTube.

YouTube might be launching its long-awaited subscription service as soon as the end of October, according to Recode. After offering ten years of ad-supported free video streaming, Google may have finally recognized that it’s in their best interests to offer an advertisement-free subscription to YouTube users. Google’s video website already sent out emails to content owners, asking them to agree to the terms for a “new ads-free version of YouTube” by October 22nd.

Although for the past decade, it has previously provided its services free, in less than one month from now, YouTube will be launching a blended subscription service. But speculation that Music Key could be merged with YouTube’s previously-separate plans for a monthly-subscription tier that would remove ads across its entire service has been growing in volume. Recode is reporting that for $10 a month, online users will be able to enjoy YouTube with no commercials, banners or pop-up ads interrupting their viral entertainment. They come in all shapes and sizes—from super popular songs like “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” to a funny grumpy cat, someone falling down, or even something completely off the wall like Ylvis’ “What Does the Fox Say?” video. Just like earlier reports revealed, if providers refuse to get on board, their catalogues will “no longer be available for public display or monetization in the United States.” The service won’t just flush out ads from videos, though: Recode says the company’s $10-a-month offering also comes bundled with Music Key, the website’s music streaming product that features offline access, background playback and more.

Channel owners have been notified of a change in terms as the Google-owned YouTube is moving into what appears to be the final stages of its new subscription launch. Some tech sources, such as the reportedly “well-connected” site Re/Code claims that YouTube users should mark October 22, 2015 on their calendars. For years, YouTube’s fans have been telling us they want more-more choice when watching their favorite content, more ways to support their favorite creators and, above all, the option to watch their favorite videos uninterrupted. So it’s unclear how the company will make money from the twofer, especially since it reportedly had trouble locking down deals for its ads-free model earlier this year.

A combined Music Key and ad-free subscription could have wider appeal than either individually, although there would be some interesting royalty calculations to be done if music were bundled into the same subscription as other categories of videos. With ad-blocking services available that do the same thing for a lesser amount or no cost at all, has YouTube waited too long to offer this to the public? The site, as well as content creators, managed to gain revenue from advertisements, making it possible for everyone to watch anything they want for free. YouTube will supposedly be bundling the new service with an updated version of it Music Key service plus an as yet unnamed new feature that will provide users with “an ad-free viewing experience.” While no information regarding prices is available, tech sources believe that the subscription fee will be approximately $10.00 a month. That’s why an overwhelming majority of our partners — representing over 95% of YouTube watchtime — have asked for and signed up for this service.” “We want to ensure that fans who choose to pay for an ads-free experience can watch all the same videos that are available on the ads-supported experience.

However, if you have a hobby, are really good at a particular activity and would like to help people, are funny, or even if you just want to have some fun, YouTube is a great option to cash in some extra bucks doing something you love. In the email, it’s noted that 95% of partners have signed up so far, and given the side-effects of not doing so, that’s not too much of a surprise. That’s why we’re asking you to update your agreement to reflect the updated terms for the ads-free service.” For content creators, they would be forced into signing this new agreement or losing all of their work because they want to make some people feel like they are getting their moneys worth. The plugins work by automatically intercepting the website’s code when a user makes a request to open a website, and scripts that are identified to be ads are removed before the website is displayed to the user.

Paying the same price for the bundle appeals to many of the experts who believe the bulk of the funds would be required to pay the copyright owners and music labels. In an earlier statement, YouTube had informed, “We are progressing according to plan to provide fans more options in how they enjoy content on YouTube.

If you didn’t know, YouTube has been hinting at offering a subscription service for some time now, and it hasn’t been until recently that they have announced a date. You’ll get to keep your current user name (as long as it doesn’t contain invalid characters, in which case you’ll have to go through a few extra steps to make the transfer), and all your old comments will eventually (not immediately) migrate with you. The fact Google wants to step into the ad-free world may be a sign that they intend on implementing measures to break ad-blocking plugins, at least on YouTube. Enabling monetization means that you agree you will only upload video content that you have the rights for and that you will play by the rules (such as not watching your own video over and over to boost ads).

It might be surprising that YouTube does not bring in the big bucks for Google, considering its incredible popularity and current domination over the video-sharing market. There’s the bottom text based ad that is displayed at the bottom of your video, and then there is the clip that plays at the beginning of your video. You can select which of these ads your video can have, and it might make a difference depending on your audience or how much revenue your video brings in. The difficult part is actually defining the word ‘impressions.’ The only time you make money on YouTube is when someone interacts with your ad or when it leaves an ‘impression’ on them.

For example, if you are making short funny videos, it’s probably best to not include a 30-second ad at the beginning—a viewer might just skip right on by. Luckily, YouTube has an analytics page that you can use to see just about every measurable aspect of your video—from demographics to time of day watched and location.
