Taking Video as my Passion
I created my first Youtube channel way back 2013. It was under the screen name of bujoy83 and I uploaded few videos on that channel as an experiment using video editor that my bro downloaded for me. As a first timer, I was having fun editing videos. I was not really into making money that time. My goal was to make videos, that's it! The fact that I don't know how to make money from my videos, I never bothered to research at all.
How did I Start?
After those months of observing my videos' views by logging on and off occasionally, I almost forgot my account. I became busy as a tutor and a traveler. One day, in the year 2015, I started watching Youtubers videos and I found out how they make money from their videos. That's the start of my interest again in making videos. So, I deleted my old account since I was not earning from those videos ever.
How Can I Make A Youtube Channel?
My first Channel has more than a million views now. That's really great for a starter. But, it is not really me that caught the attention of viewers. I will tell you later...
Anyhow, to make a youtube channel, you will need a google account. If you don't have a gmail yet, just sign up now!
When you go to youtube site after creating gmail account, they will give you instruction on how to open a channel for you. Just remember to put your real country where you're at and also your birthday should be atleast 18 or above in age because you will be in trouble later on after signing up since youtube won't allow monetization in your videos when you're under age and adsense will ask you to verify your address in order to receive your earnings.
How can I Earn From My Videos?
After I set up everything, I uploaded different videos as my hobby then just enable the monetization. Then, I connected my account to google adsense as partners so adsense can put ads on my video. Those clicks and views of audience who watch my videos can give me commission and it will reflect to my google adsense account. So, after you set up your channel, you will need to sign up an account in adsense and the same gmail address should be used in signing up there. I started my channel on June 2015 then, only cents was able to accummulate. After 6 months, when Miss Universe 2015 aired on television, I uploaded many videos of those event. Because of that, one out of 24 videos that I uploaded became trending in just one day. That's the month I was able to earn the $680. Now, I am still uploading some videos I made especially on tutorial. When I started receiving income through adsense in youtube, I also started my personal blog website to have additional earnings where I write blogs which is also connected to adsense so I can put ads in there. Today, I am earning in both youtube and personal site through adsense. Just remember only one account is allowed in adsense because you can connect all your accounts in there.
I wish that I help some students out there who wanna earn extra money online. If you like this post please hit the like button. When you find this post interesting and helpful, just share it to others! Thanks
