YouTube has been spoiling creators recently. As well as launching a redesigned YouTube for Creators website, it has published a helpful list sharing 10 ways for creators to monetise their content on YouTube.
From monetising YouTube Shorts to its newly launched Super Thanks, which let fans personally support their favourite channels, check out its 10 tips for making money on YouTube below.
YouTube Shorts is aimed at luring creators into making TikTok-esque videos. Now with the YouTube Shorts Fund, a $100M fund for 2021-2022, eligible creators will be selected each month to claim a bonus payment. It could be anything from $100 up to $10,000.
You don’t need to be in the YouTube Partner Program to be eligible but must be creating original content, have uploaded a Short in the last 180 days, and be in an applicable location. Check out all the details here.
Advertising has always been the main way for artists to make money from YouTube. Ads on YouTube work through Google Ads.
YouTube Premium is YouTube’s paid subscription tier, giving users access to YouTube Music and YouTube without ads. YouTube says a majority of revenue generated from YouTube Premium goes to YouTube partners.
For a monthly fee users can join a creator’s channel to get perks and exclusive content.
Fans watching your livestream or Premiere can get your attention in the endless river of chat by buying a Super Chat. It makes their message stand out in the stream so you can see that you have a loyal fan in the crowd.
Super Thanks let fans show their appreciation on videos you’ve uploaded. They can post a unique brightly coloured comment, so you can immediately see that they’ve thanked you for your uploads.
Super Stickers let fans show their support in livestreams by buying a sticker that will stand out through the crowd to let the artist know they’re watching.
Artists can use a virtual shelf to display official branded merchandise on the watch page, so your fans can easily buy artist merch.

Officially launched in 2007, RouteNote began as a digital music distribution platform for independent artists and labels to get their music online,
Designed and built to take advantage of the shift towards independent and self-publication through online and mobile music or video outlets.
RouteNote is partnered with some of the biggest retailers on the web to give artists massive and immediate availability for their products.
RouteNote has since grown into a full digital media management service providing artists, labels and creators instant access to a large proportion of the online market.
Onsite, artists, labels and creators can upload content to the RouteNote catalogue and enter into a non-exclusive agreement permitting us to distribute their music to a worldwide audience.
Our rates for providing a distribution service are currently the best in the market and our ever expanding catalogue gives us increasing muscle with which to negotiate deals from which everyone, artists, clients and distribution partners included will all benefit.
