YouTube Partner Program - Monetization 2018 - Why this is "GOOD" For Small Creators!
The Truth Playlist: goo.gl/y6rkRp
By now i'm sure you've all heard about the YouTube Partner Program Monetization Change/Update, youtubes new guidelines, and may be a little worried!
This was of course in response to the happenings over the 2017 year that brought advertisers to pull out and content being against terms of service! What do you think about the new monetization rules 2018?
The backlash form the youtube ad policy 2017 where creators had to have 10000 views to monetize was immense!
Now the updated monetization guidelines 2018 requite not only 1000 subscribers but 4000 hours of watchtime!
Now before you rant, this is good for small creators! Why you ask? Think of this as an opportunity, these new monetization guidelines 2018 could be exactly what small creators need!
Monetization is not everything, there are many ways to make money on youtube 2018!
The Youtube partner program is just one of those ways! Think outside of the box as we explain in this video!
This is not the end, it's just the beginning!
As Brian G Johnson would say now is the time to "stake your claim"
Follow our social media:
doesn't really effect me because I wasn't really making anything but its a significant change with the watch time which I feel is unattainable for a small channel like mine. But I think its a good thing because it makes you more accountable for the content you put out.
Yeah, it happened to me too. I lost my monetization thanks to the changes that were made.
I've been in the YouTube Partner Program since mid 2010. I'm just bummed out to start the new year with bad news like this.
CrimsonStudios. I've made the Four thousand hours of watch time and I'm over the Thousands Sub's a few weeks ago.
My channel is awaiting review now, they're taking their time too. They said it's a backlog
Hi thanks for visiting us!! We still have a long way to go. We are close to 1000 subs but nowhere close to 4,000 hours😒😒!! We are going to be trying to make more videos to help us get there!! Thanks for the tips!!
What I don't understand is that YouTubes reason for the change is to improve YouTube, to get rid of all the crappy creators. The problem is that it doesn't get rid of the crappy creators that have a large following. Truth is Google doesn't want to get rid of them because they're making too much money from them.
The problem with small YouTubers is it's so hard to get exposure for their newly uploaded videos. Even if it's better than the multitude that's been posted before them, it's so bloody hard to rise above the rest of them.
Truthfully, I reckon you need more like 10,000 subscribers to be able to make a decent living. Reckon we can thank our lucky stars they're only asking for 1,000!
Speaking of which, I'm a little short. Quite willing to return and subs.
I love the positive outlook Ryan ! There are alot of people gaming the the system with less than quality content...it should motivate us to work harder and longer and make better quality content ! Its not about the money...its about creating !
My first reaction was ohhhhh no. I had just finally made it to be reviewed. I would have until the policy. Now I have to get 30 or so more subscribers and 1,000 more hours. I’m so close. I just gave you a taco if u know what I mean. Excited to see more friend. I hit the bell too.
I'm digging this new layout! Yes, it's a lil frustrating....but honestly perhaps it will weed out some of the bad channels?
omg net neutrality....I got an email from our governor cuz I signed the petition. She is against it as well.
I agree ppl love complaining. Me. I run away from it. not worth my time and energy lol
Great video Ryan, I’m obviously no where near the 1,000 subs or 4,000 hrs of watch time but I’m just starting out and trying to get the hang of everything. Your video definitely offered me some tips to think about. I went ahead and subbed as well, keep up the great work!
Great video as usual but im not sure I fully agree, I put a lot of time and work into my channel and am still a long way of the targets set, I don't see why us small YouTube's who stick to the rules and don't put out anything offensive should be punished for others that do.
Then there is still something you are not doing, otherwise you could be farther ahead, there is always something to be improving!!
None of us were making money anyways so i dont see the reason to be monetized
This is a great subject to have a show about! Im so lonely. Im gonna say that about 50% of what is in my news feed is false news & possibly a lot of it is from bots but its up to us to realize it & become fact checkers ourselves. If I see an important news story I normally will take it fairly lightly especially if its from a small internet source & move on thinking that if this really happened it will be reported on by other sources. I also take the time occasionally to dig in & fact check it which can take time. I do know that fox & friends has always been an opinion show & therefore not real news, they reportedly started posting something that states that before there show. Theres others that just take the tiniest amount of intelligence like alex jones, I want some if the drugs that guys on. This is a buyer beware kinds thing. Some people do not the the facts no matter how many reliable sources you give them. Ya can't fix stupid.
Yeah my content has only went down. If it hadn't snowed 3 times this year and our bridge being broken I would have unboxings. I could unbox my studio equipment, yep still in the box. Today makes one month of a terrible combined years.
I'm not quite as disgusted as most about the actual changes themselves but I am disgusted by the morals behind the move where Logan Paul's punishment essentially dicks over tens of thousands of smaller channels that are completely unrelated, whilst his channel is unchanged. Crazy move! Awesome vid as always man :)
My knee jerk reaction was that this is a bad thing. But the more I actually think about it. I think it's going to make content better. I never thought it was a witch hunt, but I still can't figure out what this has to do with the whole Logan Paul situation. I doubt YouTube will ever have manual reviewers though, that would just make too much sense and cost too much money. I don't think this is a witch hunt though.
Lol love your humour dude.
I was pissed when I first heard of the new rules but you're right.... it DOES force content creators to work harder to make better content. So with that in mind..... Im moving to twitch XD
Only kidding bro I'm staying here 👍😎❤
What if I told you some folks are helping each other reach the new threshold? That doesn't sound like a bad idea at all; however, some do that by Sub4Sub, which is an ineffective strategy and won't work in the long run.
Actually, as a smaller YouTuber with 179 subs, my problem isn't that YouTube changed their monetization policy. It's actually just the attitudes of the larger channels. These same people were complaining last year about the 'adpocalypse' and how it effected their check, but now that this policy only effects small channels, you have people like Rob Dyke and Boogie talking about how small channels must not be working hard enough or need to change their attitudes. It's the hypocrisy of other YouTubers that are irritating me and nothing else.
I'm indifferent. My channel isn't monetized anyway. I don't want advertisers to dictate whether or not my content is suitable enough for them. I'd actually like to set up a patreon when I get bigger and see where that takes me.
I've never thought about making money on yt tbh lol i just enjoy making my stupid videos haha well who knows 😉 maybe in the future 🔮 😂😂😂 wth I'm talking I don't even have 150 subs wtf FailFish 😂 hahaha great video bro, thumbs up!!! 👍
Love the new background and mic setup! But people no need to fret. You can still make money from youtube. wheteher you start up merch or hit that threshhold. Also this change is going to make us smaller creators work harder and stronger.
Nice video man! I think that there would be more to it than just making good videos. It's also about promotion, how you use social media to get your videos out there. So far my Autism vlogs have been getting better and better, but now I need to expand to other social media sites to get more traction. This change to the YouTube partner program is going to set me back for sure, but I believe this means that the monetization money will go to the right people, the people who actually make good content and care about their work. But I digress, great work again!
Literally I was like "omg can YouTube get any worse" for the first few days. However I'm now really starting to think "Ok, how can I get my video recognised" so I've started to put more work into my videos which is helping me in a way. So yes I may not have been happy initially but I think that it could help in the long term...Well I hope anyway :D Thanks man, this was a really good video and it was nice to see some positivity about it for a change :D
I have to admit, yea it sucks the requirements are more steeper for upcoming channels and extremely small channels like myself with less than 100 subscribers. But making money off YouTube shouldn't even be a thought for us small channels, only an achievement we wish to accomplish in the future. I started YouTube because I'm passionate about the creative process and sought other outlets to express my creativity, and dabble in things I've never done before. I hope others are like-minded and aren't just in it to make money, but we all know that isn't the case. Maybe this will weed out those that aren't as passionate. But those I truly feel sorry for are the channels that met the previous requirements, and now are forced to take a step back. Good luck our true creators!
You are completely right man! Although this is good in the fact that it will push us smaller YouTubers to create better content, it will also make things harder as a lot of small YouTubers like me work full time and in some cases only get 1 day in every 14 to film. Therefore unless that one day we get ends up with us creating a complete masterpiece, it is going to make it a lot more difficult for us to reach these new targets. Does this make sense??
Great video! I don't think this will affect us much, as we make videos for fun and are a really small channel. We do think this will give us more incentive to work harder and work to grow our channel though!
The new numbers are great to motivate yourself to actually put the work needed to grow faster! :D I have 500 something & about 1800 hr watch time in the last 6 months now. I hope I can get my monetizatian back in.. 2 or 3 months :D
I loved this video man! Really well made as usual!! You are amazing!
Well tbh, I was really shocked and pissed about this rule, but after understanding the situation, I believe that this was a good decision! Sure it's gonna be hard but....I think YouTube was hard anyways :)
great to hear your thoughts, as a fairly new creator this change will affect me, but I am going to continue and develop my channel, youtube is a fantastic place to be and we have a great community here to support one another.
You completely hit the mark on all aspects of this. We completely agree: it makes sense and is an opportunity/motivation. We are not motivated in any way by monetization though so it's much easier for us to have a non-emotional response. How the "community is rallying in support" of eachother is actually fascinating.
omg its awesome!!!
incredible vid man!!!
bout the yt, well it was a very rude decission and literally me and a lot of people threw digital shit at yt, but now it makes a little sense, though it was very quick and the new policy is very tough now!
i love the vid man
I like your content cause it's like some tv show. I hope people like my content cause if they dont I send them angry facebook messages that are borderline criminal. I think I'm gonna be 'huuuge! Huuuge!' These little Youtubers, 'bye bye!' Although, 'some, I assume are good people.'
Small channels will have to work much harder now, but it's a challenge for everyone to try to do better now! Crazy stuff but I'm sure the ones who care about YouTube will find them in a better spot staying consistent with vids
