Now let's get to what you've been waiting for since the beginning;

How to monetize your YT chain?
For this you must fulfill certain conditions:
- have a Youtube channel (already done)
- have an AdSense account
- have at least 1000 subscribers.
- 4000 hours of viewing during the last 12 months.
- your own video, including sound
- monetization not disabled before for this account.

How to activate it?
- connect to your YT channel.
- go to "Creator Studio" then "Channel"
- Search for "Monetization" then "Activate".
- the following page will indicate "Your account is not activated for monetization ..."
- accept the contract to become a YT partner.
- Link your YT channel to your AdSense account:
start by creating an AdSense account if you do not have one (Adsense, for beginners, is the advertising agency owned by Google).

 Monetization must be enabled before linking your AdSense account to the Google Account. The button in Creator Studio will turn green.

You must choose the type of ads to be shown when the channel's monetization is approved, ie it has exceeded 4000 hours of viewing in the last 12 months with 1000 subscribers at least.
The agreement will be sent to you by email.

When does Youtube pay me?
 within 60 days after the end of the current month, if the amount reaches $ 100 USD. You can view your earnings by logging into your AdSense account, then "Payments" and "Youtube Revenue".
To calculate your winnings for each video, go to your YT account, then in Youtube Analytics.
then "Revenue Reports" and click on "Ad Performance" or "Estimated Revenues".
YT's earnings are taxable normally and you must declare that to the taxes of your country.
The legal structure of auto-entrepreneur exempts you from paying VAT.

But how much can I win with YT?
YT does not make you rich overnight unless you get to work and produce beautiful, coveted videos. Note that it is not the number of videos which is important but it is especially the hours of viewing and the good return in the comments, the partitions, the subscriptions ....

YT says that you can earn 1 euro for 1000 views (1000 euros for 1 million views). Reality indicates that net earnings vary between $ 0.4 and $ 1.8 / 1000 views, an average of $ 0.8 / 1000 views.

To maximize revenue, some activate all types of ads to pick certain types of ads (usually religion, hate, racism, violence or adult content). So it's up to you to choose your path.
We must also look for likes, comments, subscriptions. Ask them clearly in your videos to your audience.

For the suggested pace, a weekly video on a fixed day to keep your followers. The time needed to create a video is more or less long (1 hour for script preparation, 1 hour for recording and up to several hours for successful editing!)
Always try to get more people to subscribe to your channel.
Be inspired by the models of the big YouTubers who earn a lot of money without creating a lot of videos but it must be said, their videos are very well done.
For 1 M views/month, you can earn from 500 € to 1000 € / month advertising revenue.
Some YouTubers use other means of monetization such as sponsorship, Tipeee or collaboration (one quotes your channel in his video, the other, returns his audience on his channel).
To create your video, you need video editing software (Camtasia, Vegas pro, powtoon ...) and some useful tools (Canva for logos and images) and priceless extensions such as (: Tube buddy, WeVideo, Pro Mode for YouTube Video Editor, Keyword everywhere (for a fee), Clipchamp, Nimbus video screenshot, Screencastify, vidIQ Vision, Catalyst VISO, Hootsuite, Heartbeat, Social Blade ...). You need to put the privacy policy (in respect of GDPR)for your channel.

Now, it's up to you to play. Good creation!
