YouTube Is Making It Harder To Make Money On Their Platform

canada goose outlet online store review Just yesterday, YouTube announced that channels under 10,000 lifetime views will no longer be eligible for partnership and monetization. canada goose outlet online store review

canada goose outlet black friday I have seen opinions on this matter ranging from the enraged to the apathetic, and I want to try to bring a somewhat sober analysis to the mix. canada goose outlet black friday

canada goose jacket outlet store Today, more creators are making a living on YouTube than ever before. However, with this growth we’ve started seeing cases of abuse where great, original content is re uploaded by others who try to earn revenue from it. canada goose jacket outlet store

canada goose clothing uk I’ll get more into my thoughts on this quote in Canada Goose Parka a bit, but I do just want to say that this is nothing new. Original content has been getting ripped off for years. They haven’t “started” seeing cases. They have been a constant Canada Goose Outlet and obvious flaw in the system for a while now. canada goose clothing uk

goose outlet canada Starting today, we will no longer serve ads on YPP videos until the channel reaches 10k lifetime views. This new threshold gives us enough information to determine cheap canada goose uk the validity of a channel. goose outlet canada

canada goose outlet store calgary In a few weeks, we’ll also be adding a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program. After a creator hits 10k lifetime views on their channel, we’ll review their activity against canada goose clearance sale our policies. canada goose outlet store calgary

canada goose outlet online uk Now, when it comes to the responses I have seen, many people are understanding of the change. They see it as a necessary barrier that prevents those looking to make a quick buck from abusing a system that should be primarily benefiting serious Creators. canada goose outlet online uk

canada goose outlet in chicago On the other hand, there are some that think YouTube is knocking down the smaller creators, that they are killing the livelihood of millions of YouTubers, and there are of course those who always say, “This is the END of YouTube!” canada goose outlet in chicago

canada goose outlet price Whewoklet’s sift through some of the nonsense and get back to reality here. canada goose outlet price

canada goose outlet montreal YouTube has set a minimum of 10,000 lifetimes views for a channel to apply for monetization. To all these people complaining that this is killing livelihoods Canada Goose Coats On Sale and is knocking down the small time creators, that many views will equate buy canada goose jacket to roughly TEN DOLLARS! Probably not even that much. Regardless though, that’s not even enough to hit Google’s minimum AdSense payout, which is $100. How can we be talking about destroying livelihoods and killing small channels, when we are canada goose coats talking about $10 and on top of that, we’re talk about Creators who have not even started getting paid by Google? Nothing’s actually getting cut off that they canada goose uk shop were previously receiving! canada goose outlet montreal

canada goose outlet mississauga Another major question surrounding this new change has been from Creators who are still under 10k lifetime views, but already have monetization enabled and Canada Goose Outlet have been earning small amounts. Will anything happen to that revenue? Will their previously enable monetization be shut off or does this only apply to channels made Canada Goose online after the change? canada goose outlet mississauga

canada goose outlet boston Well, I can answer one of canada goose coats on sale those questions with absolute certainty, because YouTube covered it clearly in their post when they said: canada goose outlet boston

canada goose outlet usa And, of course, any revenue earned on channels with under 10k views up until today will not be impacted. canada goose outlet usa

canada goose outlet miami As for whether or not channels under 10k lifetime views will have their monetization shut off, I can’t say definitively, but according to YouTube’s language in the quote I shared earlier, that does seem to be the case. canada goose outlet miami

canada goose parka outlet uk Starting today, we will no longer serve uk canada goose outlet ads on YPP videos until the channel reaches 10k lifetime views. canada goose parka outlet uk

canada goose outlet locations in toronto That seems to say that this will affect channels already registered in the YouTube Partnership Program, based on their use of “YPP” in the quote. canada goose outlet locations in toronto

canada goose outlet england Anyway, I don’t think people should uk canada goose be freaked out about this. Even if it does shut off monetization for existing channels under 10k views, there isn’t much to lose for these channels other Canada Goose Jackets than literally a few bucks. As a social media consultant myself, I actually advise my clients to forgo turning on their monetization until they hit a certain number canada goose uk outlet of subscribers and/or monthly views. And that number far exceeds 10k Canada Goose Online lifetime views. canada goose outlet england

canada goose uk I advise them this way because it removes a barrier to people finding out about their new channel. They have to come at canada goose store their small channel with the attitude that they are a nobody and canada goose factory sale they want to snatch up every opportunity to remove barriers to people watching their content. Even removing those five seconds that people have to wait to skip an ad can have a noticeable impact on their growth rate when executed alongside other best practices. And seeing that growth is far more valuable than the few dollars they might see come in from their views. canada goose uk

canada goose jacket uk Personally, I believe YouTube should have set the bar higher. My gut canada goose clearance says it should be 100k lifetime views, but I think 50k would be reasonable. That’s a good solid amount of views and it canada goose uk black friday takes some work to get there. canada goose It would be enough time for a creator to prove that they are there to contribute cheap Canada Goose to the community with quality and engaging content, rather than just trying to make a few bucks. canada goose jacket uk

canada goose outlet shop I canada goose black friday sale remember when I first applied for Partnership on one of my old channels back around 2012. This was when you still had to apply and they would accept or deny you based on their “secret requirements.” The popular belief was that you would probably be accepted if you had at least 600 700 subscribers. I believe I was at 450 subscribers the first time I applied, and I was denied partnership. I applied once again when I hit just above 600 and was accepted. canada goose outlet shop

canada goose outlet uk sale I explain this short buy canada goose jacket cheap bit of history to make the point that the bar used to be much higher. I was pretty frustrated back when YouTube announced that they would be opening up Canada Goose sale Partnership to everyone. I had worked myself to death trying to build my channel into what it was and I was so excited when I got the message telling me I had been accepted into the program. For a long time, channels have been able canadian goose jacket to take advantage of perks that a lot of us had to work hard to acquire. So I don’t believe it is much to ask for a channel to make a small show of commitment to the community before being allowed to monetize canada goose outlet uk sale.
