Anyone one can earn money through YouTube, but it will come down to how much will you make. To learn how much YouTubers make, we have to look at how they make their money and the top 10 richest YouTubers.

Making Money on YouTube

In order to make money on YouTube, you have to monetize your channel and associate it with an approved AdSense account. To qualify, you have to meet the video monetization criteria and YouTube Advertising formats. To get to that point, you have to:

  • Make highly appealing content
  • Market videos via social media and personal blog/websites

Once your traffic has increased and you’re getting more subscribers and views, you can become a YouTube partner. The more subscribers you have, the more likely you are going to achieve a large amount of views. If you’re granted a partnership, you’ll have access to a large variety of content creation tools to enhance your videos. The best way to meet the criteria is to acquire 15,000 hours over a 3-month period.
