How to earn money through YouTube?
Before going to the actual question, let’s see how you can earn money through YouTube. Don’t skip this section if you are just starting to post on YouTube.
On YouTube, you earn money when people watch your video. As is evident, the more views you have, the more you will be paid. This is so because your video attracts people to the app, which makes the app developer profit too. There is even the concept of YouTube Premium, in which the user pays YouTube for ad-free videos. To promote the premium feature, YouTube has started giving a lot of unskippable ads before, in the middle, and at the end of the videos.
You can get views on YouTube in a lot of ways. But the significant ways are only two—direct views, where the user either clicks on the link or the video to view, or through the advertisements mentioned earlier.
Before YouTube starts paying you, your video must receive a minimum of 1,000 views. The amount you get paid differs for each individual channel. The quality and duration of your video determine the amount you get paid. Other than that, the country from which you upload the video also determines the amount.
How much for 1000 views in India?
YouTube pays anywhere between 500 and several thousand Indian rupees for every thousand views in India. As mentioned, there are a lot of factors on which the amount you get paid depends. Different genres have different amounts set for them, which are discussed below –
