Monetizing on Youtube Rule Change

Youtube is not the most efficient way you earn income online, but if you create good content, are consistent, and enjoy sharing it’s one great way to build an audience. It’s actually my favorite social media platform for creating and also watching. I first created a channel in 2011 called Chicvoyagegroup.

I started to share travel videos and then started adding educational tutorials on camera’s like Canon SLR’s, drones, and more. When I started to become more consistent publishing I started picking up traction and saw progress as it started from a few dollars to almost $50US a month with my combined channels. This is not my main focus as I prefer to get exposure and an audience on Youtube; providing them an introduction to my content. This is something that I think you should aim for as well, but the side income from Youtube is a good incentive to keep creating and sharing free Video content on Youtube.

Youtube is now changing the rules on Feb 20 2018 stating that you need 1000 subscribers and 40,000 views to qualify. I have enough views, but need more subscribers to continue to earn from Youtube. I would appreciate if you can click and hit that subscribe button. Thanks
