The good thing with YouTube viewers is that they don’t have anything specific they like to watch. In fact, most
viewers on YouTube are there to relax by watching funny, interesting videos that will make them laugh.

with great humor. If you happen to have a video close to this, then you might just be sitting on the next online
viral. Just make sure your video is edited before you upload it – there’s a host of programs that can do this, such

• People that didn’t authorize you to include them in your video.
• Inappropriate content that cannot be viewed by children.

When you’re done recording your video, think of a catchy title. After this, give a brief description of your
video telling viewers what they should expect to see and also possible, include a link for more information, for
instance to your website.

When you accept that invitation, it will be one step closer to a YouTube partnership and while you will not make
much money with one video, it opens you up to bigger things.

terms to ensure your videos comply. Make sure you upload regularly and that your videos get over one thousand
These steps should get you to a good start to making money on YouTube. It will all come down to how much work,
effort and creativity you put in.
