Starting a YouTube channel involves creating a Google account, if you don’t already have one, and then signing into YouTube using that account. Once you’re signed in, you can click on the “Create a Channel” button to set up your channel. You’ll be prompted to provide some basic information such as the name of your channel and a description of what it’s about. Once your channel is set up, you can start uploading videos to it.

To monetize your channel and start earning money, you’ll need to meet YouTube’s Partner Program requirements. These include:

  1. Having at least 1,000 subscribers: This means that at least 1,000 people have chosen to follow your channel and receive notifications when you upload new videos.
  2. Having at least 4,000 hours of watch time on your channel in the past 12 months: This means that people have spent at least 4,000 hours watching your videos over the past 12 months.
  3. Complying with YouTube’s community guidelines and terms of service: This means that your videos must not violate YouTube’s rules regarding content, such as hate speech, harassment, or illegal activities.
  4. Having an active AdSense account: AdSense is the program that allows YouTube partners to earn money from ads on their videos. To join the YouTube Partner Program, you’ll need to have an active AdSense account and link it to your YouTube channel.

Once you meet all these requirements, you can apply to join the YouTube Partner Program. Once accepted, you can start earning money through different ways:

  • Advertising: YouTube will place ads on your videos and you’ll earn a share of the revenue generated by those ads.
  • Sponsorships: You can also earn money by partnering with brands and including product placements or mentions in your videos.
  • YouTube Premium revenue sharing: YouTube Premium is a paid service that allows users to watch videos without ads. If a user chooses to watch one of your videos through YouTube Premium, you’ll earn a share of the revenue generated by that user’s subscription.

Keep in mind, it’s not guaranteed that you will make money from your youtube channel, it depends on how much engagement and views you get on your videos.
