If you've heard of the YouTube partner program you'll probably know all about making money from your videos. If you haven't, the YouTube partner program was exclusive to the most popular YouTube video creators, it enabled those YouTuber's to customise their channels heavily and make money by placing ads on their videos.
Now the partner program is not exclusive to the most popular YouTube video creators, it's open to everyone. So anyone with original content on their channel can now make money off their videos. You will need a valid Adsense account to make money off your videos. Also it's only limited to the following countries - Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States.
It's great YouTube has done this because it's a win-win situation. YouTube gets more content creators and more users and those users make money off their videos, everyone wins. Some huge YouTube superstars such as iJustine, NigaHiga, ShayTards and Sxephil all live off the money they make from YouTube. And that's just a few, there are thousands of YouTuber's who make a living from just creating YouTube videos.
So if you think you could make original content or are the next George Clooney, get creating.
