If you are monetizing your Youtube Channel via Youtube Partner Program, you are governed by Youtube’s eligibility standards. And, there are sets of criteria that you need to follow in order for your Youtube Channel to be monetized.

With Affiliate Marketing injected on your Youtube Channel, the potential income would be ‘sky is the limit’ when it comes to monetization of your videos. You are not at the mercy of how many views of your videos you have or how many subscribers you have. With Affiliate Marketing, you can start monetizing your channel regardless of the number of views and subscribers you may have.

Types of  Affiliate Videos You can Create

The video may be any of the following:

  • A Review of a product or services
  • An Unboxing Video
  • A let’s Play Video
  • A Tutorial Video

Pretty much any kind of video which can influence your viewers to buy the product that you promote. And it is very easy to get started.

Once you have your video made, you can sign up to an affiliate program (this can usually be instantaneous) and then start placing Youtube affiliate unique referral links on your video (either in the description or in the video as annotations).

Well, you still need to drive traffic to your videos in order to get people clicking on your links. Without anyone watching your content, no one is going to click your affiliate link. This is the hardest part of affiliate marketing, but once you get a bit of traction on your videos, it can snowball into a regular income.
