YouTube Partner Benefits

YouTube RobotAll day I have been taking advantage of my new YouTube Partner Benefits. You have been sending me a bunch of questions on these benefits and in this article I will answer them.

The main question I have been getting is, “Can I become a YouTube Partner if I don’t live in the United States?”

The YouTube Partner Program is only available to users in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, and the United States.

I’ve also received questions on what benefits you actually receive as a YouTube Partner. Here is the list of what you can do:

  • Put advertising on any video as long as it doesn’t contain copy-written content
  • You can pick the thumbnail that is displayed on your video (This is Huge!!!)
  • Use a custom banner on your channel with links to any other website
  • Display a 300 pixel x 250 pixel ad on your channel (It can be anything you choose)
  • Display your videos in wide screen format 640 x 360
  • Track what people do on your channel

Here is My New YouTube Channel

YouTube ChannelIt is a fun site that allows me to show my personality. It also obviously makes my site stand out from non-partner sites. I’ll be very interested in whether this change will effect my overall subscription numbers. (I average about 5 new subscribers per day)

How Much Money Does a YouTube Partner Make?

I also received many questions on how much money you make as a partner. I can’t answer for the big guys on YouTube. I can however state that regular YouTubbers earn around a $1 for every 1000 views. That number doesn’t sound big, but believe me it can mushroom fast based on the number of videos you upload and your popularity.

I cover a bunch of other topics on being a YouTube Partner here Become a YouTube Partner. If you want to know exactly how to make a popular YouTube channel see How to Vlog.

    I have been thinking about doing a you tube show weekly. How many viewers do you need to become a partner?

    • admin says:

      I think to become a partner you need to get 125,000 total video views. You may also need 1 or more videos that received over 20,000 views? Also don’t post anything illegal. If you copy people like Ze Frank and the other popular people you’ll more than likely get to this point pretty quickly. Move from popular topic to popular topic fast, edit out dead air, use quick cuts, sing, add animation, etc. Hope that helps?

      Thank you 🙂 No you make more money than that. Go here to see what people make Social Blade. Incomes constantly go up, but from what I’ve seen people make around what the high income mark is in the estimate. That doesn’t count web site affiliates, donations, anything you sell, etc.

      I don’t sell anything, but it is a nice piece of extra income.
