YouTube has over 2 billion users and they watch a billion hours of videos everyday. In past 5 years, YouTube has paid more than $2 billion to YouTube partners who are monetizing their content on YouTube.
Top YouTube content creators like Ashish Chanchlani, Amit Bhadana, Gaurav Chaudhay (Technical Guruji) are earning hundreds of dollors per day from YouTube. In India, there are many YouTubers who are earning on an average 1.2 to 2 lakhs every months from YouTube videos.
How to earn money from YouTube?
Over 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and five million videos are watched every day.
Since April 2017, channels needed 10,000 lifetime views to be eligible for monetisation. But as of Wednesday, the requirements for both new channels and existing ones have been increased: they will need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months. These numbers aren’t easy to reach, especially for the smaller or niche content creators. Reports claim that tens of thousands of channels will be affected by these changes.
